It’s an interesting request from the Army, and to test the validity, I’m tempted to stat up said vehicles and run them in Team Yankee (the “what if?” WW3 in 1985/Eastern Europe tabletop wargame). They already have Army troops in M113s and Marines in LAVs, and both in Hueys, be interesting to see the direct comparison Read more

I think you’re right. These are as much cultural touchstones as anything that’s happening in the world of sportsball, and those questions show up often enough on Jeopardy.

Love the Fletch references, but I’m surprised no one pegged to the Jake Busey PCU connection. “Fighting aliens from another dimension, you say? Here you go kids, just a little binger to brighten up your day.”

I remember wanting the 8110 as well. A decade ago I would have paid to get one and figured out how to make it work in the States afterward, but these days, nope, sorry, too tied into smart phones to go back. Read more

And I don’t begrudge you that experience, I hope when you can afford that classic that you enjoy every moment of it. I’ve had those experiences (a truck built the year I graduated high school, some 20+ years ago, that I’ve kept running for longer than I really should, and a half-finished crapcan racer that I recently Read more

I used to think that what I wanted in life (or at least, for my daily) was a classic musclecar restomod - classic musclecar looks on the outside, modern driveline and appliances on the inside. ‘Cause I want it to go fast, corner, stop, and I’m not putting up with the summer without AC. Read more

I remember Last Action Hero well... okay, I remember its soundtrack with great fondness. Poison My Eyes by Anthrax AND Dream On by Aerosmith? Fantastic mix of music, and the rest of the album is perfect for the time as well. Read more

Where’s the media’s responsibility for blowing this event out of the water (and we won’t hear the last of it for weeks, thank you very much)? 50 dead in one evening is a tragedy, but there are so many other things that are wrong in America, yet this is what we’re focusing on. Fine, numbers (taken from the CDC’s Deaths Read more

Who cares? Write the last 2 novels, George, and quit with the side projects already.

I would be appalled at all this poor fiduciary sense, but where else am I going to get my inexpensive used cars if idiots aren’t going to sink themselves into debt up past their eyeballs? Keep on squandering your money, folks, I plan on dying debt-free yet still enjoying my life and livelihood.

And that’s what you get for not letting your game be played by the Glorious PC Master Race. Yes, yes, we get D2 (still over a month away, but the beta was tasty), but Bungie-created FPS’s still work best on a computer with keyboard and mouse. When will they learn?

They’re starting to offer the “not a minivan but still so very much a minivan” Equinox as a diesel? Why they don’t just offer the actual minivans with a diesel option (which fits in so well with their slow-driving normal mode of operation) anyway? It boggles the mind.

As someone who “cheap-cigar-chomping, grey-goatee-having” describes to a tee (I would be paranoid about illicit surveillance if you also threw in “non-ironic Hawaiian-shirt wearing”)(‘cause I’m growing old as disgracefully as possible, thank you), I have to say that I have little interest in cruisers. I don’t quite Read more

You’re thinking of Neal Stephenson’s “Clang”. Yup, backed that particular Kickstarter, my one and only failure. Oh well. I’d forgotten the GabeN had appeared in those backer videos, have to go back and see if any of them are still up somewhere online. Read more

Whether she has any basis or not for her DMCA claim, between this and the YouTube shenanigans of a couple weeks back I’m betting she’s never going to see any work in the videogame industry, ever again.

And I’m still never buying another gaming laptop, thanks to Dell/Alienware. Giant/heavy, expensive, utterly unupgradeable, and they stop supporting the hardware a mere year after I purchase it? Yep, that’s a “never again” thank you very fuck you much, hardware industry. Don’t be fooling yourself, kids, all Read more

Actually, the contractors they’re talking about aren’t even the armed kind - they’re in a foreign country fulfilling some role that the US military doesn’t want to do itself, everything from electrical generator repair and maintenance to driving buses around post to cooking food in the cafeterias to supplying gravel Read more
