On a more personal note, tonight my son participated in the Cub Scout Pinewood Derby. This year, he wanted to make a Warthog. I naturally was inclined to support his decision and help him with the project. :D

Although camouflage isn't a traditional color for a Warthog, my son's really into it lately. And it is his car, after all. ;)

Unfortunately, a Warthog isn't really built for speed — he placed 8th in his den. I suppose the chain gun wasn't sufficient in eliminating the competition. (Although it must've done some damage; several cars had wheels pop off over the course of the evening.) I suppose next year, we'll have to use a gauss cannon.
