Can safely say the worst car I owned... uhh including for reliability... was a brand shiny new AWD Charger. Man that sucker was a mistake.
Living in rural america I hear asshats from out of the woods constantly talking about how they need these huge trucks to get to the air bnb camps out by my house. This boggles my mind as my daily drive is an unmodified 09 Honda Civic, hell I use it as my POV on the FD as it does great in snow and ice covered dirt roads… Read more
Come down to Boston, you’ll feel right at home in our traffic. Exactly the width of a Miata between two cars doing 85 in a 30? Yea someone will put a dualie between them, all three will threaten to murder each other, then a spontaneous conversation about sports and beer will break out (or they all murder each other,… Read more
Ah - yes yes, this has the world famous Lambo Ecotec. An engine world famous for it’s....economical nature.
Oh lawdy; ok, you aren’t just crying about how they can only afford all seasons and it isn’t fair they don’t do as good in the comparisons. I’ll confess thats what I wrongly just assume in these articles comments every winter at this point.
Fair point on the review. I’d be interested to understand the impact of… Read more
I’d be curious about the impact of studs in snows in various conditions - snowpack, thick ice, black ice glaze, and dry pavement. I noticed one car I responded to an extrication call was running studs on dry pavement with glazing black ice and have since begun to suspect without enough depth of ice, snow, or mud to… Read more
Uh? As one of the main markets in New England for snow tires I can safely say the roads are predominantly snowpack up here in the white mountains from December through February.
I saw a guy park his truck in Walmart the other day, he got out proudly bragging about how it’s the first time he ever managed to not double park it. Then I have a neighbor whose truck won’t even fit into his driveway, or his garage. The town lets him park a little out into the road, it’d be a little harsh to force… Read more
As another in your demographic I also find Harley’s supremely uncool. They’re almost the opposite of the image they seek to foster now, like bad dog shirts in the 90's. I see a Harley and I see someone willing to throw all the money in the world to buy in to an image they don’t actually have, but wish to project. On a… Read more
If you’re blasting your highbeams in fog you’re definitely doing it wrong.
Hey, they’re legally entitled the right to cross. Sure for safety they totally should don’t get me wrong, but do you look left and right before proceeding across an intersection on a green light? You assume people are going to yield to you the right of travel, much like those pedestrian are assuming, given the… Read more
Oh man, you’re so spot on. THAT actually happens a lot. There are a lot of very exceedingly competent data analyst groups that will buy up data sets like that and connect those dots. It’s often pretty nefarious, such as Cambridge Analytica.
As a DBA who rose to the position as a data analyst I will say you’d be shocked just how much every company is gathering from you. What’s less shocking is how little they use that data. It’s a lot more “grab everything then maybe we’ll find a useful report on it later?” than it is marketing wizardry. I’d love to take… Read more
