The new recruits here lately have been confusing stunning engineering with the rich people who own them, and that their job should be to cover the vehicle first. Almost everyone who reads Jalopnik already thinks Bezos is a scumbag, piling on is just annoying. Spanfeller’s plan for G/O seems to be to turn it into a… Read more
I mean you can make fun of the guy for having a “toy” like this but you know what? This project has employed hundreds of people in the hard hit marine sector and will continue to employee lots of people for the substantial on-going maintenance that will be required. Captains, engineers, all the other crew, the ports… Read more
Next time just tell us you’re jealous and save this thousand word travesty for someone you’re unsuccessfully trying to pick up at the bar.
The torque on that blade will be enormous if the whole windshield is covered with crusty snow. I can’t see how it, or the gearing, would be strong enough like that.

No offense meant to Ms. Blackstock, but I don’t think I’ve ever missed Fancy Kristen more than when I was looking at this photo:

To be fair, it does protect them FROM price gouging? Given that it allows them to be the only one who can do the gouging.
What’s wrong is that this is what the Jalopnik commentariat has devolved into. We all used to be car fans but now all we do is bitch every time a company brings back an old concept because we think it can’t possibly recapture the magic we remember seeing through the rose-colored lenses of our youth.

Ranking Half-Blood Prince as #3? The consensus is that it is one of the weakest films due to plodding plot and pacing. And that movie actually ranking higher than Prisoner of Azkaban, which is often considered to be the best of series with lot of heart and pathos?
