4x4 diesel manual? I think I see one of these in my future. Shit, this one will be within driving distance. It might be my near future.

You want to live in a tiny trailer with no toilet and shower? I get the whole wanderlust minimalism mentality, but set yourself up for success first.

The very LAST thing my parents were ever concerned with was how comfortable my brother and I were in the car. We were lucky to be getting a ride somewhere at all - my parents were NOT in the kid taxi business. We could like it or lump it. And complaining would result in a swat at best or in one case, a long, cold walk Read more

In my mind I’d rather have to over-load a vehicle 1% of year then to under-load a vehicle 99% of the year. This guy gets it.

Damnit. I want this. To me this thing is cooler then any 6+ figure car I’ve ever seen (in person or in print). I never felt bad that I couldn’t afford the latest Ferrari quatrofolienflameblowupanello or whatever but the want for this thing right here is emanating from deep within my loins.

Side view mirrors can also break. I’ve seen plenty of trashed cars driving around with 1 or 0 operational side view mirrors.

As a Volkswagen owner, I really don’t want to rely on electronics for visibility.

I’m 47 so even with a backup camera in my car I still use my mirrors and/or look over my shoulder. I also run a technology business so I love gadgets. I’m torn about this.

A family friend had a kid who tripped on an escalator and got their lip stuck in the teeth. Being a good Catholic mom, my mother immediately told me about this to fuel my childhood anxieties.

I also once saw an elderly couple fall down an escalator. I have never dropped all my shit, not caring if it got stolen, and run Read more

Ya, I knew about this previously and will continue to ignore it. I’ll go with the standard walk on one side and stand still on the other. Dont block peoples path. There may be theoretical optimum ways of doing things but reality and social norms has a way of getting in those things way.

As a child I once leaned my butt against the moving handrail of a down escalator while on an upper dept store floor (the moving rubber rail felt good on my 9-year-old butt), unfortunately the handrail lifted me up and carried me down the escalator balanced on top of the rail, in sheer upside down terror (multi-storey Read more

This is a topic that is near and dear to my heart, as I work for an institution that provides PE shops with the debt to acquire their companies. Read more

Can confirm. People immersed in PE are easily the worst people I’ve ever been involved with, and I comment on the internet.
