Hey, I'm Alec. I push a '97 Honda del Sol Si. Driving is literally the love of my life, there's pretty much nothing more enjoyable to me than that. I drive Japanese and stick only, and I hate American cars. Once you get that, you'll most likely get me. Pretty big Android fan—I have an HTC EVO 3D—and I love it. Check out the "Me" page if you want to know what I look like, or Kik me if you need to chat (AlecRinghiser). I'm always adding to my Tumblr, so check back often and feel free to submit or ask me something using the buttons below.

After the drawings were done the teacher was showing them to the class, and one drawing was a pic of Gatsby reaching towards at the green light, but in the drawing Gatsby didn’t have hands. So my teacher starts saying something like how this picture has hidden meaning and portrays the helplessness Gatsby feels, and the kid next to me just casually says “I can’t draw hands.”

Here, a projectile fired at a sample of advanced ceramic composite tests the material’s ability to endure the strike.
