Maybe there should be a combined score - add your Oppo score to the practicality score to get a ‘Practical Oppo’ score, or something like that. I think our 5s would be up near the top.

Probably the same bottle of Apple Jack I bought on Wednesday. At the rate things are going it should be gone by Monday...

No worries at all. I don’t give a rat’s ass how much anyone else can drink or what they drink, so I don’t take offense to jokes about my choices or quantities. Read more

Mine is also the Sport model as that was the only way to get the manual, at least in the US. The EPA ratings are a little higher on the manual thanks to the one extra gear, but since I like to hear that MZR sing I tend to zing it up to redline more often than I should and rarely get the rated numbers.

If I did it right, which I probably didn’t, I come up with 485. Perhaps I’ll get some sleep and try it again later.

The evening’s not over yet, so the drinking shall continue. I don’t know if I should reset the counter at midnight or at whatever time in the afternoon it is that I wake up...

I have found the key to eliminating hangovers through amateur testing, and the secret is massive hydration - at least 12 oz of water per drink. OK, you may be running to the bathroom every 5-10 minutes, but it will be worth it. I first tested this out whilst on a business trip years ago when pitchers were cheap at the Read more

This is why, although I’m sure the republicans would be all in favor of this kind of screwing over the populace even if Dolt 45 wasn’t in office. I’m no longer a professional, but now just expendable wage slave, a tool to be used and tossed aside the moment I break.

My dad and I were long-time BMW owners, but he now drives a Chevy and I drive a Mazda. I can’t see either of us buying another new one. It doesn’t surprise me that everyone of driving age in my sister’s household drives a new BMW - leased, of course. Read more
