See but that’s the problem - I see anything with “Wandavision Finale” in the title and I’m avoiding it like the plague at this point. Particularly if it references a philosophical construct that might apply to the finale. Read more

Holy shit - this is just a glorious comment.  I regret that I have but one star to give.

11:12 AM on the Westcoast, dude. Most of us haven’t even made it to lunch, let alone watching the finale of Wandavision. So... you know, if you’re going to expect me to read your post, let’s not set it up like you’re giving away spoilers...

In what bizarro world was the hipster on the CF aero bike? Every biking event I’ve been to - whether Tris, centuries, or fun rides, it’s invariably the hipster riding the 30 year old steel framed single-gear bike. And usually wearing some absurd costume.

Oh definitely - if they had ordered one in, and I backed out of the deal they’d have been left with a very tough sell taking up a spot on their lot that would be better filled by some silvery, jelly-bean shaped, CUV. And I do get it - they need to make money. But was I really such a risk, walking in with a nice trade Read more

It was some time ago, now, and I forget their rationale (if they even had one) - but ultimately, no. If I recall correctly, they gave me the hard sell on the All Track, and then when I clearly said I didn’t want it, they mentioned that they’d look into ‘ordering one’ from Germany and get in touch. They never did. I Read more

Hawaii’s reduction makes a good deal of sense - no tourism, far fewer drivers, and even fewer distracted drivers far from home who don’t know where they’re going. Read more

I don’t know about AMC - but I’m sure that John Wayne took a serious, and culturally sensitive approach to ensuring that Native Americans were accurately represented in his movies, and fairly compensated for their involvement (if any) and this, was certainly not a common attitude in the 1970s...

Jeep does seem a little better than average at bringing in good colors. The dealership near me is the same - there is usually a couple of standouts available on the lot.  Of course they’re also fully loaded and expensive - but they are there, at least.

What pisses me off is that some companies ‘technically’ offer an awesome color combination - and never bring it in. I was looking for a new car a few years ago - so I logged on to VW and configured the exact car I wanted. A dark green Golf SportWagon with a tan interior and a 6 speed. I rushed excitedly down to the Read more

Somewhere, deep the bowels of the City of Troy’s ‘bylaw enforcement division’, the same grizzled officer shuts down his computer, holsters his ticket-pad, and mutters into the void: “Looks like it’s time to get back to work”.

I sometimes hate the internet because I read something I just typed - and I come off like a colossal ass. Referring to your position as ‘blindingly ignorant’ and ‘incredibly stupid’ was WAY unfair. Read more

Why do you think this is not problematic? The perspective that this is just about ‘what people think about when they hear the name’ is indicative that you don’t really grasp the problem. Read more

Fair - it is your suspicion. But let me say your suspicion is incredible stupid and blindingly ignorant of how everyone treated first nations in the 70s and 80s.

No.  Believe it or not people do act on principles and have genuine concern for matters that are important to them.  And many of those have nothing at all to do with money.  You’re characterization of their position is, frankly, insulting.

But embarrassingly used “they’re” instead of “their”. Curse the limited editing opportunities on this site!

Always entertaining to watch a company desperately kick an issue down the road while they’re accountants and marketers try to figure out whether they’ll make more money, or less, by addressing it meaningfully.
