Edit: the MVD rejected my plate.
Pancake King’s response was fantastic.
When I drive around in my car, whenever it manages to handle well or I drive it well and it responds accordingly, I give the dash a little pat and say “Good car.”
I’ve had the privilege of posting a few comments on Jalopnik that get a decent chunk of stars on occasion. What I am seeing is that the comment responses to my comment or post follows a trend:
Hey Oppo, I’m burning the midnight oil working hard to try and catch up on a few projects before the morning.
I’m tired of this perception and I’m tired of people taking umbrage at things which aren’t personal. People have lost the ability to analyze criticism, nor properly express it.
I was just thinking about all the silly ass factoids I know and I figured other people have fun things to share that doesn’t have to follow the format of “What crazy thing do you know about cars?” or some such.
On a whim I went to Jalopnik’s about page and decided to write little micro stories about each staff member. I just had the thought “let’s make up some mini stories about people’s faces.”
16 years ago I accidentally gave someone bad advice about power supplies in a computer store. For some strange reason, I can’t stop thinking about it now. I wonder whatever happened to that guy? Dude, if you’re out there, I hope you got it worked out anyway.
TL;DR - AAA is shit now. They show really late and their dispatch hates life and happiness. Lexus customer service was nice to me.
Now, before you say “both” - I think reader fatigue is a thing, or tl;dr wouldn’t exist. Part of good writing is learning how to clearly express things in a concise format. But some people really dig word content, and others are visual.
My boss is doing it as well, so I am not complaining much. We both stepped away for a few hours in the middle. But this is not the first day this week we have had to do this, nor is it the first week this has happened.
Due to circumstances not entirely in my control, I have had the privilege of driving a 2017 Lexus NX200t for a few days. Now, Oppo, I have actual pictures of the things I am talking about!
I recently posted a comment about pets resembling their owners, and inferring that cars sometimes do too. So let’s chat. What’s your spirit car? What car do you resemble? I’ll start.
These are my musings of the new Lexus flagship coupe based on a 3 minute test drive at the Scottsdale Cars and Coffee last weekend.
It seems, however, that I’ve been priced out of the market at this point.
I’m a little worn out from all the things that happened this week. So now I’m going to put the happiest, cheeriest song I can think of and wrap up some work. It’s not even in English, so I’ll append lyric translations at the bottom.
Can someone help me get a little more illuminated on the layman monikers for the current car designs out there? It’s clumsy to say FR or Front mid or Mid rear or rear and then have to clarify, and also, it’s not entirely apt as it’s about bodywork, really, which the drivetrain layout correlates to but won’t correlate…
