Dr Manhattan basically invented the electric car and made ICE engines obsolete overnight. Manhattan mentions it in passing to the OG Niteowl at his retirement party after OG Niteowl states his intention to get back into fixing cars. Its simultaneously an indicator of Manhattan’s ambivalence to regular people lives in Read more

Patton Oswald did a bit in his stand-up about how he knew a lot of kids who were born to summer of love parents. They grew up with their folks espousing free love and peace to them, so when those kids became old enough, they rebelled against their hippie parents by moving to the suburbs and voting Republican. So Read more

If the fun car has to have an automatic, then it should be a good one. I think that should fairly narrow the field OP can afford to something by VW or BMW. Maybe Mazda?

Definitely not product placement - the BBC charter doesn’t allow for it. Also, most UK forces have a steady flow of Volvo estates, so it’s not much of a reach for him to have one.

Ha! It’s far too easy to fuck up in a tractor isn’t it? Once I backed a tractor into a gate and bent it 90 degrees. It took me a half hour of contemplating running away before I worked up the courage to confess.

Who else here tore the shit outta their hands on chicken wire as a kid building Tracy Island from the Blue Peter instructions?

Eh, no shame. T3 is not a bad movie, it certainly isn’t Genesys bad, and I loved the way it ended, but it can’t hold a candle to the first two, and that’s its biggest problem. If the creative team had spent more time nailing the story, and less time upping the ante and chasing a PG13 rating, it could have been a Read more

See, I’m wondering, given the Furlong is back as John, that’s she’s his daughter, and will at some point take the mantle of leader of the human resistance, just as her father was meant to.

I’d be on board for this too, but I read elsewhere that Hulu makes most of its revenue from advertising, so I’d be surprised if its an option.

Also, Frankfort up north. You’d think there was a dealer in town there’s so many Outbacks and Bajas, but the nearest is like an hour away. Whomever up there specializes in Subarus up there must make a killing.

The Outback’s in Asheville I get. Care to explain the 4Runners? I was there last fall and they were EVERYWHERE. Our Airbnb in the West end had two current gen 4Runners in the driverway!

It’s a Porsche, which Playmobil have a license for, so don’t be surprised if you see it on toy shelves before the movie comes out. To your point though, I totally agree - it looks to completely lack the imagination that made the LEGO movies work so well. Who knows, maybe it’ll surprise us, but I’m not confident it’ll Read more

It still amazes me that compared to now, back in the ‘90's, a hyper car wasn’t something that was guaranteed to sell. I remember the F1 was listed in the new car stats for years in the back of Top Gear magazine. I’m sure these days it would never even be announced for sale, they’d just contact a list of preferred Read more

Hey, I’m not ragging on him, moving is one of the most stressful activities most people endure, and as someone else pointed out below, stretching that out over months can be its own kind of nightmare. Read more
