Photo Manipulation …
ok this isnt much of a photo manip as it could be but its my first attempt at something like this.
What makes a tire blow out?
because of too much air. they pop like a balloon over filled with air. Also, when you drive, the temp. of your tires heat up. This causes the air inside your tires to heat up. Heated air expands. So this can also cause a tire to explode.
I almost experienced this today. I’ve been having the vibration in my car for quite some time. at first i thought it was the rear driver’s side tire because it had a weird wear pattern so i replace it and the vibration was not as bad. it was manageable, however, in the last week its been getting worse. then today it was so unbearable i could drive over 35 mph.
i went to Great Bend this morning and had no problems. while there Matt and i inspected the tire noticed a bulge. this bulge was the cause of the vibrations. it was fine while crusin’ around town. after i left and got out of town and on the high way it started to vibrate really bad. About 4 mile out of Albert 12 mile out of GB i had to slow down i couldn’t control the car i pulled over in Albert and attempted the put my do-nut on well my POS jack couldn’t hold my car up. so i phoned up Matt and ask if he could come help me out.
after getting the tire off and the do-nut on we find out that my rear tire had 60+psi … its only suppose to have 35 psi … now you ask yourself why i put that much air in it … i didn’t, i have not put air in my tires since i had the tire shop in Hays put new tires on the front. the guy at the shop was trying really hard to sell me 4 tires … i didn’t need 4 tires. so after i went back up to pick my car from the tire shop the guy said to come back when i was ready to buy a two new tires for the rear. i didn’t think much of it … now i know the rat bastard had his tech over fil my tires so it would fail so i have to come back and buy two new tires. F that! i will never buy from Firestone tire in hays ever again!

Ok many of you know i also have a site over at www.joshbieber.com for quite some time now it sat there as a poor neglected red headed step child, while biebs’ world here got all the sweet sweet chocolate lovin’. i’ve been missing the artistic freedom of being able to tweak my theme the way i wanted so i went out and made a major overhaul of joshbieber.com. joshbieber.com is now the home of all my art work. biebs’ world is going back to being just my blog where i’m going to post stuff about me and my life. my other site will cater to my artwork i will still post art here its just going to be a link to the joshbieber.com articles i post. i know its sounds complicated, but at least then i can keep stuff separated which i have been wanting to do since the creation of joshbiebsart …
So bare with me as i transition stuff around. also im start another 365 photo starting this weekend. i am also going to be working on a customer theme for my art site right now its using the same on as biebs world.
welp that’s it for now … \m/ rock on!
building a relationship….
well I’ve kept is secret long enough…
over the last month I’ve been preparing to start a routine of exercise. I’m going to attempt to, in 9 weeks, be able to run 5k with out stopping. I’m using a program called C25k “couch to 5k” http://www.c25k.com/ the goal is to be able to by the end of the 9 week program you should be able to run 5k in 30 mins. now this goal is going to be a tough one and very unrealistic for me with my asthma, but i am determined to at least try. so what if I don’t make it. i just need to lose weight and if i can get into a running routine i can achieve that. The C25k program seems like the best candidate for me since “Its secret is that it’s a gentle introduction to getting the body moving, starting off alternating between walking and running small distances, and slowly building up until after 8 weeks, you’re ready to run 5 kilometers or 30 minutes non stop.” so wish me luck and support because ill need it!
