Great. Stick perhaps one of the world’s most unreliable engines inside a C10. No thanks...

Kind of a shit state so hence, makes sense that a shit person would seek running it

Its also known as Food grandmothers like. We would always take my grandmother there on her birthday because in her mind it was fancy food. Last time I was there I could not believe for fuckin’ terrible it was. Everything was coated in nasty, sticky sweet sauces and stuff. Despite that it was really bland. And for what Read more

My take, as the greyed-out token white guy is for everyone who voted against Trump- DO NOT forget why we did so. We came way, wayyy too close to having another four years of Trump. And in just 24 hours its become even more clear than it was before that we would have suffered greatly as a result. That Trump had more or Read more

The problem is that we have essentially eliminated the entire infrastructure of our manufacturing industry. I look at this from a sort of historical perspective. I restore vintage electronics as a hobby. From the 1920's-1980's and even 90's the US was an absolute powerhouse in consumer electronics. That entire supply Read more

And that is the thing. Its clear a LOT of Americans really like batshit insane, mean and nasty people and she seems to absolutely fit that bill. In 4 years everyone who voted for Biden had better remember that less we go right back to having an AWFUL person running the country

Well, its too late now. Back in the late 90's the world effectively made a very stupid choice. The US, Japan, Germany, and the rest of the world’s manufacturing countries went into China and eagerly opened their patent books in order to get their foot in the door. GM, VW, Boeing, Toyota,and so on ALL went in and did Read more

You would be surprised. Over the course of the pandemic, anytime I look for something, the first thing I do is look for “American made” followed by the object. So far I have bought the following:

A commercial grade flashlight
Wool socks
A solar tube for my roof
A commercial grade set of digital cooking thermometers
A Read more

Its got to stop somewhere. Even though we import a shit ton of stuff from China they in turn have MASSIVE tariffs on our products. An American car has a 30% tariff for example. On top of that, and this is really getting into the weeds, I find myself increasingly trying to avoid buying Chinese products if I can help Read more

I kind of am... ok with that. The truth is that if the US lets Chinese automakers into our market they will destroy the industry.

Believe it or not, all I did was do a major tune-up. New shocks, exhaust headers, plugs, wires, shocks, ball joints and belts. Otherwise I did have it re-painted. I’m sort of OCD about it and have always kept the engine and the underside of the truck clean so it has always looked like this. It has around 300,000 miles Read more

1st Gear:
My concern is how is Tesla going to be able to compete against the slew of Chinese automakers that are all coming up with these new models that have like 500-600 mile claimed ranges. They are going to have a hard time keeping up with those companies who can make them a whole hell of a lot cheaper.

Its not like this looks astoundingly different from all the other trucks they make. If you had showed this to me and said look- its an F-250 rolling off the line I would not have batted an eye

Well... in this case its 4 cats. One is a Maine Coon who is approaching 30 pounds. Guess he could suffice

I think they should either offer two varients- an EV and a ICE version, or slowly phase the ICE version out. I have no issues with it eventually being an EV

I am a big time EV fan... But Ford is IMHO making a mistake. People who buy mustangs tend to be similar to people who buy full sized Trucks. Very conservative. This isn’t going to go well for them

Just completed 25 years of ownership of my small, 2WD, 4-banger, bench seat 5 speed manual Tacoma. I bought it 1 week after graduating high school. It was the cheapest truck on the lot. Anyway... a move across country, numerous girlfriends, then getting married, buying a house, 8 jobs later, a climb in the career

Yesterday I watched as Joe Biden gave a truly honest, heartfelt speech where he gave thanks to his home state, his family, the people around him and honestly? Just about the most direct opposite of Biden as one could imagine. It was so surreal after having spent 4 years listening to self-serving tyrant literally doing Read more

I’ll be rooting for her. So cool to have someone from my neck of the woods as vice president.
