Years back my cousin bought a Wal-Mart bike. The settlement from when the front forks fell off was enough to pay for new front teeth and a gently used Ford Ranger.

Here’s my 2 cents. They should fire about 9 out of every 10 beat/traffic cops and search for and train new detectives at about triple the current rate. Its clear that there is racial and other biases in the activities of beat and traffic cops, but the public wants more crimes stopped and criminals apprehended. Why not Read more

Did anyone call for Mr. 2? A pair of those with batteries up front and in the back would do nicely.

This. I saw a statistic that 97% of the US population will still be at risk if we “win” this round by keeping up social distancing. A return to racing puts not just the driver’s at risk but the hotel staff, the airline personnel, and a multitude of others who are tangentially connected to the sport. Read more

I had a 91 non-turbo one of these and I’m right there with you. I still miss that car. $&@ing deer!

Its all academic because the house bill has 0% chance of passing (think of it as a statement of priorities). The Senate is where the negotiations are actually taking place with the plan being that whatever the Senate comes up with being passed via unanimous consent in the House. Read more

I don’t think you understand secondary effects. The money for the Postal Service for example is because it is likely to go bankrupt due to the virus and the reduction in mail it has brought. Also, even if you think well that’s fine poorly run businesses should go bankrupt there are a couple of other considerations. 1. Read more

Its funny how our most socialist institution, sports, are our most favorite and are only truly accessible to the uber wealthy. Sure anyone can buy a ticket to a game but only the super rich benefit from them in any tangible way. And yes the players benefit financially but they put their long term health on the line as Read more

The Model X, especially from the rear, is the ugliest mass produced vehicle ever. It makes the Aztec look like a beauty pageant queen.

You are totally on point with this one. I went back and read the listing like 4 times and I never once got the impression that “truck” was the answer. I know the Gladiator was mentioned but having to live with one of those and kids would be a nightmare as would any other truck. One time where his wife has to lift a Read more

Not to mention many new cars, including my 19 Jetta GLI have electronic parking brakes making this virtually impossible.

There would be one unintended group that would benefit from this concept if it were implemented. I used to work with mentally ill kids. Mostly kids that had severe ADHD, Asperger’s, bi-polar disorder, etc. And they, as most kids do, loved to play videogames or tabletop games. It was a way for their support person and Read more

Am I the only one that looks at these and thinks “well that’s cool but I wonder what the military has that blows it out of the water”?

Its on all VWs and I just try very hard not to look at it in my GLI. If I were a bit more OCD I would set it to 12 o'clock and only use the steering wheel buttons. But then I'd become an insane rage monster anytime someone touched the actual knob so it's eyes on the road for me.

I’m betting it sells for a crack pipe price but whoever designed it was definitely on shrooms at the time.

My rule of thumb is that you can fit as many cars as you have doors. One double wide door is almost always hiding 1 car parked in the middle. 2 smaller doors is much more likely to be holding space for 2 cars. Though all that would go out the window with some of the monster SUVs. An Atlas, Pilot, or Telluride isn't Read more

Our neighbors run a business and have a minimum of 6 cars/trucks street parked (on both sides of the street) so I think I'm good there but that is an interesting statistic.

And this is why I fight the good fight to make sure all the junk I’m not allowed to get rid of gets stacked in such a way that both cars fit in the garage. It’s also why we have a car wash subscription. The $50 per month gives me peace of mind about the condition of the undercarriage, a chance to look over everything Read more
