I do not, but looking at their property taxes they’re limited to a 1.9% increase, outside of special assessments and levies. 2019 was an average 4.1% increase taking those into considerations. Hardly the 400% increase to the mortgage bill the person in the article experienced. So I’m not saying property taxes aren’t a Read more

Insurance costs would not have gone up that much after a makeover. Costs are based on what it would take to replace the house in today’s money, not what it would take to replace it with all the old finishes that were put in it 20 years ago, so insurance costs are somewhat reflective of rebuilding a house with modern Read more

No. These bids were made by a bot a guy wrote to stick it to the bots/scalpers. He has no intention of actually buying them, he’s just trying to ruin the scalpers day. Read more

Unfortunately it doesn’t look like any of those deals made it to the PNW . . . they’re discounting them maybe 3k off MSRP still.

Am I the only one whose mind was just blown by finding out the Toyota Land cruiser starts at $85,000?? I had to go to Toyota's site to verify because I could not believe it.

Not sure how it's misinformation when they were clearly flying in vfr, and the regulations you cite don't pertain to the airspace they were occupying.

I work in software development, specific in consulting, working with organizations to better their software development practices. I’ve seen what is going on at this studio dozens of times over. This is not a symptom of their development talent. This is 100% their product management organization not having a clear Read more

This is Portland. There is an 80% chance she’d be walking around naked on any given night, protests or not. Our slogan is literally “Keep Portland Weird.” You think this is odd just wait until you see our uni-cycling Darth Vader . . .

I’ve owned 5 Jeep wranglers and never once dropped the windshield. Why? Because on the JK it’s a pain in the ass to do, and also a pain to get to seal as well again once you do it. Many Jeepers also accessorize their Jeep in ways that make dropping it an even bigger pain. Read more

Having just finished the reveal it really looks like they’re going for the jugular on the Jeep. As a Wrangler owner it’s awesome to see. The callout on the mirrors affixed to the body instead of the doors was a direct shot across the bow of Jeep. Love it.

He’s probably talking relative efficiency vs. absolute. If you’re going motor to driveshaft, that driveshaft is seeing 100% of the motor’s output. Going through a transmission it’s seeing <100%, assuming a 1:1 ratio.

Is this a case where the headlines sells the story short? The headline states hundreds, yet the article mentions 14,000 . . . talk about an undersell.

You got a WIP (work in process) problem here David. Why all these cars versus getting one, getting it to the “done” state (or as close to it as you can provided many of these are never 100%), and then moving on? The more you add in your queue, the longer each individual item will take to ever be functional. I think Read more

Counterpoint - without some sort of regulation what prevents people from just piling up literal bags of trash in their yard? As an example, my dad lives in an older neighborhood without an HOA. His neighbors across the street cancelled their garbage service and literally began burning their garbage in their backyard. Read more

As it turns out there are a lot of rich people willing to trade expensive leather and interior refinement for leading-edge (sometimes unreliable bleeding-edge) technology in an electric vehicle. It doesn’t hurt that Tesla’s performance vs. cost is usually better than the premium counterparts too. The long-range Model Read more

They did a limited run of Boss 302s in 2012 and 2013 that were great and were timed with the Boss’s 40th anniversary. As it’s been longer since they tapped into the Mach heritage they’re likely just exploiting that before going back to a line they recently used. I bet in 2022 and 2023 we'll see another Boss 302 Read more
