I’ve had some people asking me about Orion’s interior, specifically the inside. So I decided to grab this shot before I headed out; considering it’s Monday and all. So what’s going on here?
Well first, you get quad power outlets, leather boot for the shifter, pedal plates, steering wheel cover, rubber liner for the handbrake well and while it’s not visible, a temperature/compass/clock on the floor of the console. I also have a neck brace on the seat belt to make it more comfortable when driving long distance.
Upper section you get to see my radar detector (which works better as a scanner for everything else BUT police radar), a notepad to jot down something quick and an dolphin amulet I had bought from Pigeon Forge a few years ago.
The blue switch does light up, and controls the runner lights on the windshield sprayer nozzles; they’re a bright blue, and illegal to drive with in Tennessee. So I have a manual switch to control them separately from the main lights. The hole to the left of it was for another switch that toggles with a nice green light, and is supposed to be setup for a pair of fog lights in the near future.
So yes, my cockpit ladies and gentlemen. Now you know what it’s like to be at Orion’s helm.
It’s been awhile since I’ve flown, and it’s been a very long time since I’ve gotten onto a larger plane that’s not a CRJ. So as soon as I got seated on this Airbus 319 to head out to LaGuardia, I knew I had to get some sort of photo. Just look at the size of that wing!
Honestly, it was a very great feeling; almost felt like I was on a starship.
I swiped this from a relative’s phone. On our way back home, I decided to be super silly, making it out that my glasses had a pair of eyes. I had no idea they snapped the photo till later, but it did give them a laugh, at least! The hat isn’t too bad, though.
As much as I wanted to go sightseeing when I went to Florida, this was not to be. However, the family decided to swing by this little NASA Hall of Fame center before the actual space center, which did have a few cool exhibits and a couple of interesting rides. At least I got a T-shirt and hat combo out of it.
I was told not to take the camera in, so I apologize for the flip phone quality.
Sorry if the desk is a little messy, but I figured that someone would like to see what my computer is for all that I currently do, such as deviantART and the like. Meet the Millenium Mainframe.
This is an HP xl847. Windows Me OS (hence the name “Millenium”), 40GB hard drive and two optical drives, one being a DVD-R. Graphics card is an HP Vanta 16, and has 128MB of RAM. Optional equipment is the yoke on the bottom, sometimes for flight games.
Also I know fishie’s tank has low later, I’m giving it a cleaning in a bit.
As far as I know, this was the first time I actually started taking pictures of my food. It wasn’t something I did very often then, but more as a historical kind of documenting moment. I don’t have a lot of photos showing what I did in my teen years, so anything that exists is almost a big peek into my past; even if it’s an insignificant thing as what I ate.
Here, we have fried chicken, mac and cheese and a cup of water. Usually paid about $2 for all of this, and bought it during my 15-minute break. The only time I wouldn’t buy this is if the deli was closed, which was after 5PM. In that case I’d revert back to candy or something else.
This was my favorite building out of the entire WSCC campus besides the library. It always had a science feel to it. It also didn’t quite help that this is where I was taking my astronomy classes either. In fact, this photo was taken before I went into the lecture hall, trying to snack on Cheetos and wondering if I’d go eat at Ryans or Golden Dragon that night.
I took me a bit to get this up here, but a guy I knew out of Astronomy class snapped this with his camera, back when we were building our traffic cone for the Walters State drunk driving event. Traditional film, black and white. About a week afterwards he gave me a print, which I did drag my feet to post.
Either way, he thought it was funny that the res of us had our phones out taking photos.
Never got taken out in that kind of medium, I will admit!
So some peeps and I from Astronomy class were putting together our decorated traffic cone for the drunk driving awareness event a few days from now. I snapped this at Sarah’s apartment before we got ready to take him back to the student affairs office.
I’m sure I have an HD picture of him somewhere; I’ll try to get it up if I find it.
