E-Racer

I have a whole slew of topics "saved as drafts" waiting for when I have more time to properly rant. In the meantime, here's a little thing that I stumbled across that just made me stop, smile, and remember simpler times...


I couldn't tell you which states were in the first 13 colonies. The Mississippi is a long river, but I have no idea how long. George Washington was the first President and Jefferson was the third, but I don't know who the second was. I can say pencil in French, but have no idea how to say pen. These embarrassing gaps in knowledge are the direct result of daydreaming while racing Pink Pearl eraser Can-Am racecars at my grade school desk. [link]

Text-messaging? Bah, All the fun and distraction I ever needed was right in the pencil box... Who among us late-30s guys didn't grow up doing this stuff. I'd even break out the thumb tacks and take my "cars" to the next level...

The really craft savvy can take one of those erasers, a Popsicle stick, the tips off some plastic knives, parts of a ballpoint pen and make an amazing little aircraft.
