The Pritzker Military Library has a display of original US Military recruiting posters. Above is one of my favorites.

Foreign Policy Magazine has a list of the top on display there if you can’t come see them in Chicago.

A new Ferrari and 4 sets of tires

There are people in this world that get to do fun things for a living. Like flying fast jets.

I never put fast cars in the same category but along comes this video.

This guy, Chris Harris, has gone beyond fun. Don’t know what to call it. Chris gets to go test drive a beast, 700 hp and more, and his video report is just too good. Go to full screen, turn up the volume, and wait for the good stuff at about 7:45 when he turns off all the automatic traction control.

He punches it in 4th gear at 86 in a full drift right hand turn and…comes out of the turn at 106.

Dang. The guy left me grinning.
