Now I’m really annoyed

I made the return trip to the store to get the $1 back I was overcharged yesterday, but for some reason my Sweatcoin app only recorded one step all day in spite of walking more than 2.4 miles (3.91 km) round trip. And I was just checking my phone and there is a critical update for my Sweatcoin app that was buried in my notifications, so I authorized the update.

If I could just find the funds the plans for the Sprint-T are getting close to done, again. And as I was walking around I was thinking about what the car would be like if I could make it a Locost instead of a T-bucket. Now I know most of my readers are not car people, so some of you probably have no idea what a Locost is. Well way back about the time I was born a guy freaking genius took “Simplify and add lightness.” to freaking extremes with a car called the Lotus 7. That car has been in production longer than I have been alive, but is simply too expensive to make at a price point most of the people who want to buy it can afford, and it’s too raw and rough for most of the people who can afford it. So a cottage industry has sprung up making replicas with different powertrains (just look up images for Locosts). Now there is a lot of cross-pollination between the Locost community and the part of the T-bucket community that likes to make left and right turns. So much so that some Locost started as T-buckets, and vice-versa. TBH in some states it’s easier to get a plate for a Locost than a bucket, and others it’s the other way around. But that is a question for the future.

And I need to go take care of the crazy cat.
