The Ferrari 288 GTO was released around 1984. I was probably about 7 or 8 when I first noticed this car in a book I checked out from the library. I always idealized that car.
I used to get it for Christmas every year as a gift, but I was never disappointed. Every year, I would get several of the little kits. I’d make one on Christmas and then another the next day, and slowly build all of them.
I am, of course, talking about Lego.
I remember building with them, always following the instructions closely the first time through. And then after about two weeks, I’d take it all apart and reassemble everything and change it, using the same parts to build something completely brand new.
The cool new Oakley Inferno is a goggle with a lens that can instantly de-fog itself should you manage to get moisture on the inside. It does this by using an electrical current passing through a heating element in the lens itself. It’s a very similar system to those that have been in cars for years. The power for the pack is carried on the goggle strap and is no more obtrusive than the similarly shaped action cameras on the market.
