Was sharing this elsewhere, and figured some of you might want it:
A friend mentioned them to me - just ordered air & cabin filters.
Mrs. addiction got a little too friendly with a wall in her parking garage the other day. This has become a bit of a trend with her with her cars (but she usually favors steel or concrete poles), and considering this car has 140k miles on it, I’m really not interested in making another insurance claim and getting it…
For 4 hours and 57 minutes on Sunday—the longest-ever men’s final at Wimbledon, nine minutes longer than Federer vs. Nadal in 2008—Federer was the better player by pretty much every metric. The 20-time Grand Slam champion had more aces, fewer double faults, and a better first-serve percentage; won more points on his…
These are my parents - my oldest brother & I rented him a Porsche off Turo (in Austin) this weekend to remind him of his 356 B Super 90 he had when he was courting my mom. I didn’t get to be there with them, but my sister and little brother and their kids were there and got to be in on the fun.

Anything you can do, Taycan do better...
“By the time the car makes its official debut later this year, Porsche says it will have done approximately 3.7 million test miles.” WOW. As opposed to all Tesla owners being beta testers... Still hilarious to me that they’ll sell a “Turbo” model. Words have meanings, Porsche!
Targeted Phishing Attacks on OPPO/Kinja?
Anyone else seeing these? Second one I’ve noticed recently. Both first and only comments, seemingly trying to strike up a conversation to, I assume, get an email address and send a malicious file or link.
“I don’t want to say you could do it from space,” says Steward Remaly, of the Pentagon’s Combatting Terrorism Technical Support Office, “but longer ranges should be possible.”
Thought you all would love to see this. The whole video is him in his van. He’s an awesome guy. He lived with my family for a semester when I was a little kid. Got to visit him and his family about 15 years ago (definitely time to go back!).
