The Chrysler Turbine Car Reflects Bygone Era of American Greatness

Imagine, a jet-powered car. Chrysler made it a reality back in the 1960s, even though the idea was unfortunately short lived. The Chrysler Turbine is just what the name says – a jet turbine powered car. It’s quite a remarkable engineering feat, and not only reflects an era when not only the chrome was thick and the women were straight (Michael Savage’s great line) but an era when American car companies were fearless instead of gutless.

Jay Leno has one of the last surviving Turbines. You can watch Leno driving his Turbine around as well as demonstrating a cool, vintage technical video about how the Turbine works on YouTube. It sounds like a jet sitting on the tarmac when he fires it up and whisks away in it. Leno says of the Turbine:

Most were destroyed by Chrysler for tax and liability reasons, which is a shame, because to this day everyone who rides in a Turbine says, “Whoa, this feels like the future!” You turn the key and there’s a big whoosh and a complete absence of vibration… I think it’s the most collectible American car—it was so different. Most of all, the Chrysler Turbine is a reminder that all the cool stuff used to be made in the U.S. I hope it will be again.

Other than a couple handfuls of survivors (nine in total), all Chrysler Turbines were recalled and crushed. Perhaps because a turbine engine, once realized and after a few generations of engineering could likely eliminate the need for most mechanics. The turbine engine only used 1/5 of the number of moving parts as a regular car engine, and turbines are dead reliable as they power jet aircraft all over the world. Of the 1.1 million miles of driving accumulated by testers, downtime on the cars stood at only 4% and was the result of owners incorrectly using leaded gas. The Chrysler Turbine could also use just about any type of fuel, an engineering feat that surely upset the Seven Sister oil companies of the day. Gasoline, kerosene, jet fuel, vegetable oil, and even Tequila – as demonstrated by Mexico’s then-President Adolfo Lopez-Mateos – could power the Turbine.

The Turbine is all the more impressive since Chrysler engineers worked hard to have cool exhaust coming out of the back of a very hot engine, and succeeded as exhaust gas temperatures were LOWER than other automobiles of the day. Also in the “cool” department, the Turbine does not have a traditional “coolant temp” gauge, it has an inlet temp gauge which reads 500, 1000, 1500, and 2000 degrees Fahrenheit. Performance and fuel economy from the engine was good for its day, and continued refinement of the design would have no doubt advanced the design.

Other than the engine, everything else about the Turbine is pretty much stock 1960s Chrysler, except the body of the car which was manufactured in Italy. Its design is not gaudy but elegant, another impressive achievement in an era in which automotive styling could in your face. The project was totally abandoned by 1977.

The Chrysler Turbine is a symbol of time when America was self-confident in its ability to do just about anything, like put a man on the moon, and the car reflects that pride. It also reflects the ballsy nature of men who ran corporations back then. They were fearless and willing to try new ideas instead of rehashing old ideas in pursuit of quarterly profits. How unfortunate for us the micromanagers and bean counters took over.

The fear of failure is worse than failure itself. Something we should remember as men and as a nation. While the car was never a commercial success, perhaps because it was so costly, the idea was sound and continued development of the Turbine should have continued. The shelving of this idea by Chrysler means the dominance of a 100-year old design, the internal combustion engine continues to this day. How many more great ideas were shelved because of the influence of big oil companies?

For now, all we can do is enjoy this little slice of history and wonder about what might have been.

That’s It? First Impressions of Cocaine

Leo

Yes, I’ve done this, except I was smiling

Before getting started, I was a “good guy” the first 30 years or so of my life. I went to school, got good grades, avoided those “bad influences” like drugs and alcohol and fast women. (Well, I still fooled around and got some in high school and during college. I wasn’t a total derelict. But I could have had a LOT more fun than I did.) I smoked marijuana once when I was 18 years old with some guys from the local fast food joint I worked at. But other than isolated incidents, my life was dull as fuck most of the time because all I ever did was work and study. There wasn’t much time for anything else for the blue collar kid from Nowheresville, USA. I wasn’t a trust fund baby, I was a Pell Grant baby. I had to be responsible while other kids didn’t. It sucks, but hey, that’s the breaks in life.

And then, after years of nothing but study and work, I broke. Long story short I got fucked by the system and said to hell with it, having been a successful on-air news personality for 15 years only to be treated badly and increasingly growing to hate the lying, duplicitous motherfuckers I worked with more by the day. Before I left America for the Caribbean, I would head to the rough parts of town on my days off and get involved with things I had denied myself my entire life, because “good guys” don’t do those things. Well, the goodness had run out of me.

I can still remember the night I was in a hotel with two girls and they offered me cocaine. I was tired of saying no all the time and tired of being afraid. So, one of the girls gave me a little bit of blow. I inhaled it. It felt great. Kinda burned a little. Made my nose stop up. Created a drip in the back of my throat. I got happy. But I distinctly remember the thought running through my mind – that’s it? People are addicted to this and go to jail for it? The government outlaws this? Why are they putting people in prison over this? I will say that combined with sex, it is one of the best experiences of my entire life. Those girls and I got it on at about 11 on a scale of 1 to 10. The inhibitions leave when somebody is high. But the fear instilled into me and the rest of the population about this drug didn’t match my experience. I immediately knew I had been scammed by the propagandists once again.

Even Sigmund Freud was fond of the White Lady. He details the experience:

Exhilaration and lasting euphoria, which in no way differs from the normal euphoria of the healthy person. You perceive an increase of self-control and possess more vitality and capacity for work. In other words, you are simply normal, and it is soon hard to believe you are under the influence of any drug. Long intensive physical work is performed without any fatigue. This result is enjoyed without any of the unpleasant after-effects that follow exhilaration brought about by alcoholic beverages. No craving for the further use of cocaine appears after the first, or even after repeated taking of the drug.

Arguments and lectures about cocaine and addiction aside, I’ve only ever used it recreationally. I think I just do not have an addictive personality. Maybe I’m lucky. Because I can pick up and throw down both tobacco and the “coca” without any desire to do it again. I write this to tell you nothing else than that the two drugs I’ve ever used – pot and cocaine – are such a non issue to me, and no worse than alcohol that I can’t believe our government imprisons the tiny minority of people – 1-3% – who regularly use it.

This was yet another area of life in which I saw our government exists solely to create problems to create profit and to take the joy out of our lives wherever it can. Whether it be booze, mild, recreational drugs, or sex, they call it vice and try to turn us all into drones. That’s my first impressions of doing things I’ve never done before, it’s like learning to actually live and be alive instead of obsessing over the things we are told are important in life, but really aren’t.

Experiences. That’s where life is at for me. That’s one man’s opinion. Take it for what it’s worth. Most nights I just have red wine or a beer. But if a man wants to take a walk on the wild side once in a while and can keep his shit under control, why are we persecuting him for it?

On Threesomes

Threesome_Bed

There are some practical considerations before having a threesome

The ménage à trois. For many heterosexual men, it is the pinnacle of sexual experience. I had a chance to do one at age 19 but like many young men fumbled on the follow through because I was a “nice guy,” so I had to wait until I was in my 30s and had stopped being a “nice guy” who got used by women to experience one. Once the nice guy died and the asshole in me came out, I’ve had numerous threesomes.

Of course the ménage, usually known as a threesome or three-way, is a form of group sex between a man and two women. (Variations exist but I’m never inviting another man into my bedroom, so that discussion is dead on arrival). Since most men already understand the basic plot of a threesome, my intent with this article is to offer some advice to would-be ménage participants as a man who has had 7 different threesomes with 14 different women in the past few years. I’m by no means an expert, but I have learned a few important things along the way.

History shows the practice has been common throughout history. Indeed, there’s the history of harems going back thousands of years as many women “gravitate” towards and orbit dominant males or those who have a lot of cash. Historical studies have also show women will do anything for an Alpha male, as studies from England have shown women’s sexual orientation is more loosely defined than men’s.

Before getting started, realize that some threesomes go hand in hand with recreational drug use to heighten the pleasure of the experience. I am by no means recommending it, but pot has enhanced my pleasure when doing two chicks at the same time. Cocaine comes with some risks – make sure you have a couple of Viagra on hand. Even Robin Williams comically knew the risks that come with the coca:

Cocaine – paranoid and impotent, what fun. There was no bit of me thinking, ooh, let’s go back to that. Useless conversations until midnight, waking up at dawn feeling like a vampire on a day pass. No.

So, miscellanea and some humor aside, let’s get down to brass tacks. Here are some important considerations to make when enjoying two chicks at the same time.

Two_Asian_Girls

What’s your fantasy? A lot of men’s fantasies look like this

Considerations

1. Pick a spot where you’ll be left alone. This is logistically very important, especially if either of the three of you need to keep this incident on the DL. A hotel is probably the best choice, but you can have the ménage in your own bedroom if there’s no risk of someone barging in on you or of interruptions from your roommate, etc. Turn off cell phones, put on some nice, sexy music, dim the lights, have some red wine and other assorted edibles (chocolate, strawberries, etc.) available. Pick a spot where you won’t be rushed and have at least several hours, if not all night to let the adventures unfold.

2. Decide which chick you want to get off with. The reason I recommend deciding this before getting started is it alleviates some of the confusion once the activities get started. I will even ask the girls I am having the ménage with: Which one of you is going to start me and which one of you are going to finish me? And by that, of course, I mean who is going to be giving me the first and last intercourse while the other participant sits on my face and wriggles and brings me all sorts of other sensual delights. There is nothing quite like the scent of two women on your nose and mustache after all is said and done…but I digress.

3. Tell the women where you want each of them to be. Once the discussion about who’s doing what has completed, tell them where each one of them goes. Example: Nicole, I want you here and Yolanda I want you here. I find women are often a little confused and reticent when the show begins, especially if they have either never had a threesome or have them infrequently. Instructing them helps clear up the confusion and helps ensure that you’ll all come out happy. Does one girl like oral sex more than the other? That’s the one you can have sitting on your face. Does one girl hump better than the other? (Inevitably, one girl will move better and have better rhythm than the other.) Put her in the humping position. It’s really your choice in this buffet of debauchery.

4. Optimally, all should be participating at the same time. While one girl kissing you or licking your nipples while the other one either gives you oral or intercourse is nice, the best threesomes I’ve had happen when both girls are engaged at the same time. Things can get wild at this point, and two normally straight-laced women can get very nasty if everyone’s mojo starts to flow. Two straight women can start licking each other and kissing each other while they both do things to you. It’s really amazing if everyone lets go of their inhibitions.

5. Swap out. Swap out as many times as you like. Different positions, different techniques, 69 a girl while the other helps you, there are so many possibilities. Use your imagination. Once you feel you are getting ready to explode, timing is important so it’s time to swap positions and put Yolanda (the one who will finish you) in the intercourse position and Nicole, for example, in the oral position. Afterwards, it’s fun to have some pillow talk with one chick on each side of you and discuss what was good and what could be even better next time.

My best and wildest threesomes have been with two black women

Wrapping Up

Are these two women you will need to use protection with? Or do you trust them enough just to use the withdrawal method? Or would you like to finish in the girls’ mouths? These are important things to consider, as well.

I do not recommend having a threesome with a girlfriend you want to keep around, unless she is the type who just likes to have a lot of sex. Most of the time, having a threesome with your girlfriend and another participant will lead to problems as once she sees you inside another girl, things change. All my threesomes have been with women I “catch and release” – in other words women I have no short-term or long-term romantic entanglements with. We are all just in it for fun. This technique eliminates so many potential problems that can arise when a man is in a relationship.

This guide focuses on practicalities, not techniques when having a threesome. It’s the groundwork for a more pleasurable and less stressful experience. I was totally lost the first time I had a threesome, and while it was a ton of fun, it could have been even better if someone had filled me in on some of the logistics of the operation. Hopefully, this quick and dirty guide (in addition to my quick and dirty guide on picking up girls) will help you plan a better ménage with your girls.
