What exactly is the point of this chart?

Counterpoint: back in the good old days when a car key wasn’t the size of a small cellphone, sure, keys were great. But now that my key is gigantic, keys kinda suck. Sure, the switchblade key is fun to play with but you can only carry one of them in your pocket at a time and I’m not quite ready for a European men’s Read more

That’s because you rent. It’s different when you see your property value go down because of your neighbors’ hoarding problem.

I mean, I get it. 12 busted cars is a lot. A whole lot. And calling them classics is really a stretch. And there’s 12 of them. 12. That’s not good. Read more

“Patina” is privilege. Patina is putting on the look of poverty because it’s cool, knowing that you can perfectly preserve that look and also go home to a shiny new everything when you’re done play acting.

Waste, as defined by the large, flat, impermeable parking areas those cars hauling a single person require as storage whenever they are used, space that could better be used for housing or greenspace.

And they should. VW has shot itself in the foot in the US over and over again, BMW has become everything it mocked in the 70s and 80s, Mercedes has transformed from slow-moving luxury cars designed to last several lifetimes to ephemeral muscle car nonsense with styling that’s dated before the 3rd payment is due.

Next time you read “The Shadow over Insmouth” think about Lovecraft’s views on miscegenation- He didn’t bother to mask his racism that much. Insmouth was a reaction to the influx of “dirty foreigners” flooding our coastal towns as they arrived from the less genteel parts of europe.
