Sexiest Cars in the World, if you're a Wheelchair User

Wheelchair users unfortunately don't have much choice when it comes to automotive sexiness. It's better than it was, but still not terrific. Only a few vehicles can be converted into wheelchair accessible vehicles.

I've been thinking about getting a new car. My current van, the Chevy, is now 12 years old and has about 150,000 miles on it. It still runs really well; but I'd rather buy a car when I want one of them when I need one.

The first two times I bought a car, I bought full-size vans. My first car was a 1990 Ford E-150. I bought it because I thought I would be able to drive it. After purchasing the car I realized that there wasn't any technology that would make it safe for me to drive.  My second car was a 2000 Chevy Express. I wanted the Ford, but I couldn't justify the extra expense. In fact, I had to lease the car because I couldn't afford the payments. After five years of payments, I still owed $10,000.


Here are nine different models of car I was able to find that can be converted to transport my wheelchair. None of them are very sporty. They are a variety of minivans, station wagons, or SUVs. Thank goodness I'm married, because Babe Magnets, these are not.

Now that my kids are older, we don't necessarily need a full-size van. Also, each of these can be converted to allow for a front passenger seat wheelchair seating. It'll be nice to ride shotgun for once in my life. I've always been the proverbial "backseat driver". I will probably still give my wife directions and criticize her driving, but at least in the front seat, she'll be able to slap me. I think that's fair. Currently she can only glare at me in the rearview mirror, to which I say, "Eyes on the road!"

I need your help... here's my question: Which of these nine cars is the sexiest?

Ignore the colors in the photos. Let's assume I picked out something sexy. Additionally, in the case of full-size vans, they will be customized. My next car is going to be a luxury vehicle, with all the gadgets and trim. After all, I'll have to drive the thing for another 10 or 12 years.

Also, ignore your feelings about the manufacturer. Don't worry about quality, value, gas mileage, etc. I'm going to ultimately decide after thorough research, so I'm just trying to gauge the sexy factor for this exercise.

By the way, special thanks to Edmunds.com. I stole all these pictures from them!

    Wow! A Truck! I actually like the Honda Element the best, although none of them are awesome.

    Honda Odyssey...since I am a Honda owner and have experienced the quality and dependability. However, probably the Cruiser would make the cut for sexiest. The mini-vans scream "family car". Had several and they are just the ticket for kids and dogs. All depends on current (10 year) needs. The Honda will go 10 years and well over 100,000 if serviced on schedule.

    Yep, I think the Dodge Ram wins it, very masculine!

Marvels of the Science: Rocks and Things

My kids have a science test today. We've been studying rocks and minerals, erosion and weathering, and other science-y geology stuff all week.

All that work, and we just should have done in Internet search. After all, everything on the Internet is factual when it comes to science.

Here's a perfect example, a quick documentary that teaches us everything we know about rocks and 2 minutes and 43 seconds.

Stretch your brains!

More Realistic Anniversary Gift Traditions

New Anniversary Gifts Destined to become Traditional My wife and I have been married for 20 years today. Over the past 20 years I made efforts each year to observe the traditional anniversary gifts. Some of them are certainly more difficult than others, and many of them are hard to find gift worthy in the modern age.
Therefore, I offer you a modern take on anniversary gifts. How many of these will become traditional?
First Anniversary – The Ramen Noodle anniversary. Let’s face it, you blew $30,000 on the wedding, and your student loan debt hasn’t gone anywhere. Share a Cup O’ Noodles. Eat with chopsticks on the floor because you can’t yet afford a couch.
Second Anniversary – The Puppy Anniversary. She’s been looking at you with those eyes that say she wants to start a family, but you just bought a new couch. Get her a puppy instead.
Third Anniversary – The Kinky Lingerie Anniversary. Leather, silk or lace can re-fire the engines after a year of flannel pajamas that smell like the puppy,…

Donald Trump Hates Freedom of the Press, But Why?

Donald J Trump is challenging the concept of free press. He has publicly ridiculed ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, BBC, the New York Times, the Washington Post, MSNBC, and many other news organizations. Some have called out his twitter rants as being distinctly fascist.
This past week on Meet the Press, John McCain, a Republican member of the U.S. Senate, while not mentioning Donald Trump specifically, called suppression of the press "how dictators get started". Freedom of the Press in the Constitution
Freedom of the Press isn't a new concept. Our founding fathers put it into the original Bill of Rights. Even in the 1789 they realized that a free press was essential for maintaining checks and balances to the power of government.

The Press in Colonial America
Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, Alexander Hamilton and James Madison understood the power and value of the press. But what, exactly, was the press in pre-Constitution America? In colonial America around 1760 there were only 24 new…
