The treatment for the disease goes beyond 12 step meetings. Most 12 step fellowships freely acknowledge that often medical interventions are beneficial and necessary. Now, to your point about the accessibility of that medical intervention...we’re pretty screwed until we can eliminate the profit motive from healthcare…
I’ve struggled with addiction for a long time, and I’ve been so frustrated with treatment options. We call it a disease, but the treatment for that disease is... 12 step meetings. With other addicts. And the difference between life and death is whether or not a bed is available at facility run by people whose…
Reading this gave me heart palpitations and flashbacks of Plane of Fear corpse runs.
I was half-listening when I heard the name “Muncie”. The Muncie Islamic Center is less than five miles from my Grandparent’s house. This story literally hit close to home.
Was gonna say negative stuff but then I watched the Video.
I only clicked on the article/video because Mr. Ali is a beautiful person. After watching video, it’s confirmed Mr. Ali is also cool.
The great thing about Mustafa Ali is that he’s portrayed on WWE wrestling as being a technical wrestler, a skilled gymnast, never going to any Iron Sheik / Muhammad Hassan “evil foreigner” crapola. Dude’s holding his own in matches against Daniel Bryan and Samoa Joe and people love it.
Dude’s legit. One of the better surprises to come out of 205 Live.
When I had my JDM ‘88 Galant VR4 insurance was by far the biggest headache. Hagertys would insure it, but I could not use it to drive to work and it had to be stored in the garage at all times. Geico, Progressive, Statefarm, Allstate were all no-go’s. They wanted nothing to do with it. Ended up with USAA and insuring…
Nope. That pretty much assures me I’ll never be importing anything. I have neither the time, money, or patience for that kind of runaround. I will leave it for those that do and live vicariously though you. Good luck everyone!
NOTE ABOUT ARTICLE:
At first I was missing one of the import forms, and then they didn’t like the fact that the car’s VIN wasn’t on some other paperwork. The customs broker was a big help sorting everything out. I documented the process on Oppo here:
Nice write up. Last year I imported an S13 Ks to NY as well. I insured it through GEICO with one call. I also had only one trip to the NY DMV, but it was entertaining. The Information guy wouldn’t give me a number since i didn’t have a title. I had the export certificate and the transfer of ownership from the importer…
Headlights are set up to pitch a little higher on the passenger’s side than the driver’s side. So what he was saying is that since you’re in a right hand drive car, your inside light which normally would be aimed higher and slightly off to the right, to illuminate the edge of the road, is opposite on a RHD car,…
...Splinter makes videos? I thought they just posted incendiary articles about celebrities and hot takes meant to piss people off. Cool video, though!
Why did it take 3 trips to the DMV? Did you not get all the documents from the seller?
SR20 alternators were sold out at most of the major East Coast retailers.
I got a poor-quality used one followed by a ‘replacement’ SR alternator that had the KA24 pulley. Was traveling and had it installed by a shop that didn’t know better. The belts shredded shortly after I picked it up. I actually have a closet full…
When I imported a car from France recently, it took me 3 DMV trips to finally get all the correct paperwork squared away. I was registering in Connecticut and they were a little fussy, but I got it done. Using a customs broker makes the process fairly easy. Everyone should import their favorite car.
Why 3 alternators?
Pretty dope to see.
