About two years ago Metro-North (one of the MTA’s commuter rails) started installing breakaway latches on the Engineers cab doors so that anyone could just shove their way through in an emergency. Well, the latches were so shitty in quality that when an Engineer opened his window (creating a bit of a vacuum) the door Read more

Fire on an airplane is an absolute nightmare scenario. Some of the most horrifying crashes have come from electrical fires. Plus, it was bad wiring that caused TWA 800 to explode.

Who puts comments like that in internal corporate emails? I have never seen any back and forth of that nature in 40 years in corporate environments, even in one-on-one email discussions.  From the nature of the topics being discussed, these should be a heck of a lot more professional.

Don’t project your beliefs as the entire market. I know a few Gen1+2 Subie Forester owners who will tell you directly that they’re not replacing it because there isn’t a true replacement available. I’m not saying it’s the whole, I’m saying this is part of the logic that certain cars stay with their first owners for Read more

I don’t know much about Harry and Meghan but given that both Piers Morgan and Katie Hopkins seem to hate them they have to be doing something right. Read more

The tabloids will have much, much less access to them since H&M won’t be part of the royal rota and won’t be in the UK half the time. It also cuts down on the random “sources say” crap.

I think the point of moving to Canada is that they at least don’t have to be in close proximity to them.

The problem wouldn’t be you being a skilled driver, it would be you interacting with those who aren’t. Honestly, the biggest problem on freeways would probably be lane discipline if such a license existed. All the “I’m doing 5 over the speed limit, he can go around me if he wants,” people and just plain oblivious Read more
