Profound.

I always assumed you to be a gearhead.  327 is a popular Chevy engine.

A buddy in high school had a 327 Camaro. He thought he could outrun the local cops. He couldn't. They actually had 350 corvette engines under the hood. They all had a good laugh about it and then they threw him in jail.

When you converted 1960s horsepower to the way it has been measured from oh, 1980 and later, 275hp drops to about 215.

My dad is so I picked up a little of it but I'm more of a Pink Floyd person.

Why not both?

The film was directed by Ian McArthur,[1] and included a soundtrack entirely of music by the band Pink Floyd, as the band's guitarist David Gilmour, drummer Nick Mason and manager Steve O'Rourke competed in the race in 1991.

On crowded L trains in Chicago in the 1980s, when I had to stand, I tried to do so without holding onto anything. I called it urban surfing.

JYP was a college nickname. Everyone thought I was related to or looked like Chow Yun-fat at the time.

Oak Hills High School

I took the SAT there hungover. 

I took the PSAT quite drunk, and started late.   I had forgotten it was that morning.

So I only tied for best in the school.

My brother took the ACT 3 years out of high school, the morning after his band played, so he only got 97th percentile.

I took the ACT blindfolded while the proctor beat me over the head with a baseball bat, so I only got a 36.

Misread that.  An already bad joke wasn't going to make any sense at all.

Spent a summer driving  to Massillon Oh From Cincinnati every weekend and later found out the car had an exhaust leak due to a cracked manifold. Good times.
