Space Force?  That excellent documentary on Netflix is sponsoring a car? Hopefully there isn't an Air Force car and shenanigans.

God damn, I can’t even enjoy car events any more without encountering political trollery. Motherfuckers just HAVE to be shoving it in our faces. Recently I was checking out a 1970 Chevelle at my local Friday night cruise meet and saw that the owner had laid out what must have been his entire angry right wing book Read more

Sadly the “fuck you, I’m doing it anyway” mentality has been seared into so many American brains it’s not surprising to see it any more. Fundamental community support and cohesion simply, and sadly, isn’t the American way. Since “Manifest Destiny” it has always been “Nobody is going to do this for me so I’ll do it Read more

It's not that they didn't make money; the shareholders felt they didn't make *enough* money. So they axed the model. Because what shareholders want is more important than what a couple million customers want. Yay, capitalism!

friend of mine had the yamahammer SHO in high school and we loved it.  it was old and beat up by then but still good. i swear the digital speedo stopped at 85 but a friend of ours said we were doing 120 because we were young and stupid.

Because it became a TV show where the main goal is to chase ratings and dollars. If you upset the interviewee, they won’t give you more access. Without access, you can’t fill time with content and use that content chase ratings. So they won’t challenge anyone in a real, straight forward way. Read more

It’s sad that “interviewer responds to president saying batshit, incomprehensible, contemptible things like a reasonable person instead of trying to gaslight us into thinking Trump is normal and presidential” is the bar to clear these days, but I’m glad Swan cleared it.

Look, we all love a good prank show, but this really steps over the line. That vicious prankster is picking on that feeble-minded old man (who clearly suffers from dementia) and making him look confused and stupid. The old man obviously has to go to the bathroom (or he wouldn’t be sitting on the chair like it’s a Read more

Surprised none of the usual 1% apologists have chimed in to expound on how reasonable that compensation level is for someone who failed.

What? If anything, that’s one thing he’s correct about. GM’s OnStar has a margin of 30%-35%, which is insane, and I’d bet a big part of that is the data that the system collects. I have to imagine Ford’s Sync system and AT&T partnership would net similar margins. Stuff like this is the future as far as shareholders Read more

When Hinrichs “was resigned” last year and Chris’s cousin was promoted, we all knew the writing was on the wall that Farley would succeed Hackett. I was actually surprised it took this long. Read more
