CAE definitely helps tremendously when into core engineering.

Making an Internal combustion engine run like an electric motor is a challenging thing to do.

There's a story that goes along with this possibly cool pic:

Prior to my birthday late last month, my wife approached me about what I might want. She also made mention of the fact that it's always hard to surprise me since I typically only ask for one thing. But I asked her "What if I make a list of some things that I might want, and that way I'll be totally surprised since I'll have no clue what you'll choose to get me?" She enthusiastically agreed to that and so I subsequently gave her this list a few days later:

> A Katy Perry CD
> A dozen ostrich eggs
> A full-size 2000 Pontiac Aztec
> A pink t-shirt printed with a hedgehog kissing an armadillo
> An RC4WD TF2 Marlin Crawler from Amain Hobbies for only $499.99

Well, she looked over the list and although I thought I saw some of the light fade from her eyes, I knew that I had done my part in providing her with plenty of attractive options in order for her to truly surprise me! A couple days before my b-day she informed me that I might have something coming in the mail but that it unfortunately wouldn't arrive in time. I told her that was absolutely fine and that I was SO excited... not having any idea what to expect! She may or may not have rolled her eyes and given me an unkind hand gesture at that point but I was unfazed... knowing that I would likely soon be sitting in my bad-ass SUV, wearing an awesome t-shirt, while eating a hard-boiled egg, and jamming out to some "great" tunes!!

Alas... This is what finally arrived today:




I have no idea what to expect but from the size of the box, I don't think it's the Aztec...

If that were an Amazon box, it'd be 20yds of air bags, and a micro SD card.

Odd. When I order from Amazon it's usually an oversized boxed and nothing inside except the item - no bubbles, peanuts, air bags or any other protective material. My items are shaken to death on the ride...

I have one or two Amazon packages in route. If I remember I'll show you how it's packaged.

If there is one place Amazon dose skimp, it's packing. I've had stuff show up in a box with 1 piece of air bag. The last couple of things I received have shown up in the actual product box with a shipping label slapped on it. WTF? Porch piracy is bad enough. Let's give more incentive by showing every passerby what I have received. (I live in a city with 10 feet of frontage between my porch and the sidewalk)

Wife wouldn’t want them, and she’s not cleaning up after frying those eggs.

That was part of the strategy and she fortunately picked up on it ( although she was a little miffed). Oh well... I had to make sure that everything else on the list was either impossible to find or very obviously not something that I would actually want. Had I suggested gifts like socks or tools then this whole thing could've easily backfired.

She also immediately asked "What the heck is an Aztec??" haha!

I would have laughed my ass off if your wife had got the RC4WD box and gave it legit weight with junk and put a Katy Perry CD in the middle of it.

I saw one on i10 once around the 10/12 split that was borderline cool. So, naturally I googled it and there is quite a cult following of these things.

Probably bone stock drivetrain underneath.
