A view from the HSR station in Hsinchu (Jhubei) of the surrounding area. Taken with a Nikon D200 and a 18-35mm on the 16th of January 2007. Part of the HSR Hsinchu Series 2.
Yesterday, after my marathon of posting, I came home after my adult conversational English class and watched…
You guessed it The Apprentice and CSI.
I picked up the wife from her class at around 10PM and we drove home. I’m really enjoying the scooter now. With brakes, it’s just the most efficient way to get around in the city. My wife likes to say that I gun the engine (I do floor it, but it’s a 125cc engine).
When we came back, we watched the rest of CSI:NY. And then we stepped right into an episode of the original CSI. It is still the best of the 3 and had this strange concept of reverse forensics. Basically the premise is that they had a crime that had been committed a while ago and they wanted to flush out the criminal, who was a fugitive from justice.
So they manufactured evidence of a new murder and arrested someone who had volunteered. When this was done, the target reappeared long enough for the police to arrest him.
After that, I was happy to watch the first episode of season 9 of Top Gear. I knew that Hammond had been in an accident, but I wasn’t aware of how lucky and stupid he had been. He had crashed on the 3rd run of driving a rocket car. One of his tires blew out at 288mph, and he crashed. He is lucky to be alive.
Other than that, they drove a few fast cars, like the XKR and tried making a road that was supposed to be done in one week in one day. It was as entertaining as ever, though I am looking forward to exotic locales and exotic cars in the next few weeks.
