Congratulations Iron Eagle! My car has now driven far enough to circle the Earth four times.

[The vehicle's namesake is actually from another nickname that I heard somewhere for Red Sox reliever Mike Timlin that struck me as extremely appropriate. (Since, you know, he spends his free time bowhunting wild boars, wrestling bears, and "taking care of the pigeon problem" at Fenway.) Being a small, gas-saving station wagon, that sounds like it is running on batteries, the contrast was too much to resist. Caw!]
