“It’s all about reducing carbon dioxide emissions." nox, not co2. Though diesel still does a lot of good for the environment in that less fuel burned is less co2

Yeah, no heroes here. That said, I am definitely in the no-recline camp. Yes, my right to recline is implicit by the presence of a reclining mechanism in my seat. But this is one case where being technically correct is the worst kind of correct. There is a flesh-and-blood human behind me whose experience becomes measur Read more

I recently refinanced my home and the loan officer said the same thing. I tried to get into a 15-year but the payments were too high. They then said, don’t refinance again (I’m at a great rate now), just start paying extra and calculate what it needs to be for a 15-year loan. That way if times get hard, you’re not Read more

For the longest time I have only really ever lusted after the CTS -V basically because it was a 4 person Comarvette.(no Northstar to worry about) the Escalade is a re-badged Tahoe, but the CTS was kind of a car of it’s own and has weather the years adequately

My thought has always been that the people that know its a Chevy engine don’t care, because its the engine that matters, not the badge; and the people that would care, don’t know enough about the vehicle to know it isn’t a Cadillac engine.

See my thought is that it’s a blank canvas. Spray paint the shit outta that thing and make it look bright and colorful and ridiculous, or put a fuckin’ wizard riding a unicorn on the side.

Yeah... they’ve been promising gleaming alloy air cars for 60 years. At this rate, we are never going to see one, let alone one that is two lanes wide.

Well, he’s going into welding after HS, but we still gotta get him graduated before then, and I gotta maintain at least some level of integrity

They all have CFRP panels. These are just clear-coated instead of painted with pigment.

Kind of hard to tell in the video, but he might have landed long and wouldn’t have had time to stop.

Imma guess a Robinson R44, based on the fuselage length. They’re a relatively cheap bird, two bladed and single engined.

They’re used for any number of things, like tours, aerial photog, etc. If your local news is really cheap, then even Electronic News Gathering. (At least around here, the news channels use Bell 206s Read more

I would think so. I know people who have lost their children and this would almost definitely make it worse for them. Read more

I remember when Tea Party people were saying that Obama wanted to be king and that they’d die before letting anyone in the White House do that. Read more

Yes, I agree. And when he goes off on a childish rant do an Obama - say nothing. Nothing at all. Don’t respond to his bullshit, let him talk until he punches himself out. Obama frustrates 45 to no end because he won’t fight with him, and then pretty soon whatever-the-hell he’s ragging on Obama about goes away. “Obama Read more
