My sidebar is I was able to keep my ‘99 Saturn until last year because I live near a bus line. Admittedly an inconvenient to get to work bus line. But even though my commute would be almost twice as long if I took the bus, know I could take for a day or few weeks if my car died allowed me to push my luck with it until… Read more
What a pair of knobs. Fuck em both, but fuck the asshole in the Sentra even more. Motherfucker tried to kill the biker twice. That shit is attempted murder. Fuck that cop too. Fuck everyone. Fuck me. Fuck this chair. Fuck solidworks. Fuck this mouse. Fuck punctuation.
At this point, all of my fellow Nebraskans are looking at the Iowa plate on the Civic and nodding vigorously.
I attest to this - IIRC Idaho plates’ first two characters denote the county, e.g. a plate that reads 1A XXXXX is from Ada County. I am not from the state though, just informed by someone from there when I asked why I noticed a definite pattern to the plates.
Alabama has that too. Just not on any of the custom plate varieties. For a long time Mississippi actually stamped the full name of the county at the bottom of the plate. Though I’m not sure if they are still doing that now. Read more
Ohio has a two digit sticker in the lower left corner that denotes the county.
Iowa plates actually say the county on the bottom of the plate and Kansas plates have the county abbreviation in the upper left-hand corner. I totally agree about judging people based on where they’re from within the state.
Or they will have the county on the plate. Always fun when you are familiar with the state, as frequently it is a dead giveaway of what major town/city they live in/by.
Similar to the face I make looking at all of the TX, CA, FL, NM and AZ plates here in CO.

Absolutely. They know the regulars, and are very cognizant that you’re there. A little room to let them get things done is a wonderful way to let them know you care about them as people and THAT is something that a nice tip from a shitty customer can NEVER make up for.
First big winter storm? Torch hunny, your east coast is showing. There are some Jalops who live in other parts of the country who have been punched in the face with snow already this year.
On a dark night in northern France near the English channel, a Polish truck driver is doing his normal run. Sigala’s…
if for breakfast, yes.

I am not an engineer, I’m not an engineering student, and I’ve never taken classes in thermodynamics, but... my understanding was that the ideal Otto cycle was constant volume, the ideal Diesel cycle was constant pressure, and constant volume combustion is more efficient. In practice, neither cycle is completely… Read more
One thing to remember is that diesel is more energy dense than gasoline. 1 litre of diesel has over 13% more potential energy than 1 litre of standard unleaded gasoline, so it should’t be a surprise that diesel engines have higher MPG ratings. Over the same distance, a 40 MPG diesel engine will ‘consume’ as much… Read more
