Ah but it does have run flat tires. When you reach such weight levels, that suburban must be around 3.5 metric tons, you can’t use typical sidewall run flat systems... Instead those cars usually have a plastic donut clamped to the inside of the rim much like the PAX run flat system.

Thanks! Ironically I think I’ve gotten better at writing in english after leaving high school because I don’t make as many spelling mistakes now as I did back then... also oppo helps since I’ve been corrected for spelling rather often. Specially for using strange terms like dreamt instead of dreamed.

What data base are you using? If the registration is fake it would be a matter of finding all the Hawkers registered in Mexico with a private code (XB) and then matching to the paint job

I agree with that, I tried looking it up and I couldn’t find anything.

According to a local newspaper, the plane was flying without their localizer and it was caught by military radar; shot down when they did not comply.

I suppose we probably have helicopters that can have missiles attached to them, we have a bunch of blackhawks... but I don’t think we have the budget or the training for missile gunships.. I could be wrong though.

Possibly, but it’s not like the system makes any sense. By the transport secretary’s own admission, we don’t actually have an established zero kilometer like in most highway systems. So they don’t really make any sense.

But it’s kinda too obvious to land on an open public highway... even if it was at 7:30 in the morning...

Gun I suppose, in other pictures the jet looks practically intact... just on fire...

Why would they willingly land on an open federal highway?

Maybe it was just after takeoff and the helicopter was perfectly placed, and it was coincidentally successful.

Ah you see, I don’t live in the US and I’m friends with the main man behind Toyota in Mexico. So some old-fashioned corruption could do. But that would be a long term want, sadly. I don’t think changing cars right now is prudent, even though I took an internship at a factory and, um, getting there is rather hard in my Read more

Seems sensible. I’d still have to figure out where to leave my car parts and also where to work on my car... my neighbors are pretty intense on not messing the aesthetics of the garage...whatever that means. I thought they would fine me when I was changing my tires from one side to another.

I should probably check that out over here... the government says there are only eight places that are allowed to dispose of automotive oil, but I suppose those are volume providers for shops and other businesses, not for consumers like myself.

I should probably educate myself more on the matter.

In the short term, it’s pretty much useless. But when the world goes back to normal, I’ll need it on a daily basis once again. However, if I still live here by the time I need to get another car, I’m pretty certain it won’t be a performance car with low profile tires and bad ground clearance. It’s a very heavy burden Read more

The dealer’s pretty cheap, but they seem to be rather bad at the more precision focused tasks like alignment. I’m thinking that when the car turns five I’m gonna take it to a performance car specialist to check the transmission fluid and the diff oil... otherwise the regular service at the dealer isn’t that bad. I Read more

Well, I must say, ever since people started using zoom for everything I struggle to find any useful task for it. Plus, since the insurance is expired, and the smog, and the road tax, and everything is out of order when I need a car I use my sister’s or my mom’s so...

I saw a video about clogged VVT pumps a few weeks ago and thought about the Kia... I'm gonna get it serviced next week, or so I told myself. Its just kinda hard to think about the car while having online clases and oike everything else except the car in my mind

Perhaps I’m too ignorant to see it. But a form of governance, which had to be coercive in a way or another, has been found in all human organization. Even hippies arguing about switching back to communes would acknowledge that their communes would have some form of governance. It’s just innate in our humanly ways. Read more

All taxes are tribute... our IRS is literally called the Tributary Administration Service. By saying “tribute” as it is some form of scary word you’re not reinforcing your position because the basic meaning has never been different. Of course tax is tribute... if the government was funded through charity no one would Read more
