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.
At the very least I hate their lack of attention to detail. Like how I have a flip-up touchscreen radio up for sale and I say I’d be interested in trades for a regular god damned radio with “...AM/FM, Bluetooth, USB at the least”
Truck enthusiasts love using acronyms like NBS (New Body Style) and OBS (Old Body Style) as shorthand to identify which generation of truck they are referring to. But what counts as “new”, and when does it become “old”?
So, I received the pleasure of getting a call from FedEx this morning, which was an eye-opening experience into how a company can be, for lack of a better term, completely moronic when it comes to operating hours and their pick up location.
Things that did not happen: cheaper games. From here on out, it’s pretty doubtful I’ll be buying any games brand new. I know, I know, adjusted for inflation, games are cheaper now, but gods damn, I got a special edition of Halo 3 with a metal case and a book for cheaper than a downloadable copy of Need for Speed with…
So, I’m DD’ing the BMW convertible these days, since my wife and I are down to *only* 3 cars temporarily (lol). Traffic has been heavy all week, thanks to rain, so I’ve been dealing with a lot of stop and go traffic in a stick shift car.
Warning: quasi-political/societal rant below the fold.
This is the first white car I’ve owned*, and it’ll be the last! What a pain in the butt to keep looking good. Yes, general road grime doesn’t show as bad as it does on a dark car, but practically every single thing that sticks well enough to a car that you need claybar, solvent, or cutting compound to get it off is…
My wife and I decided we needed a bigger car than my 3-series wagon for our family, now featuring two kids and two dogs. Sure, we all fit nicely in the 3'er. But not with much of anything else, like food or clothes for a weekend.
Last week was a good week in my car world. Just a good week overall, really. I wrote this post up on Friday but got busy and never published it, so here you are:
I’ve slept there lots of times before and never had any trouble of this nature, but then again things are different now. Everything is all turned around, and I tend to forget how little regard most people have for unenforceable rules. It ain’t a crime if you don’t get caught, or so I was told by House of Pain. So…
Years ago I lived on a private road that wound through some dense woods, but it was mostly flat, and importantly, single lane but two-way. This means you just can’t go very fast because a) there are driveways every 50-100 feet, b) there are trees JUST off the pavement on both sides and c) you never know when someone…
Buying a new car can be exciting. The chance to score a great deal is especially alluring and right now seems to be the perfect time to buy a car. Car sales are down, incentives are up and used car prices are falling. A good chunk of you should probably hold off for awhile, however.
They’re getting annoying.
It’s coarse, rough, and irritating, and it GETS INTO THE COMBUSTION CHAMBER IF YOU DON’T RUN AN AIR FILTER.
But first, Make Oppo Prisma again.
When people put obviously undersized tires on their vehicle. I’m not talking about doing it for aesthetic reasons. I’m talking about when somebody is too much of a cheapskate to replace their worn tires with appropriately-sized new ones and has the tire shop put on the smallest, cheapest ones that will fit. Don’t…
*personal rant + buffer image*
There’s nothing like a good akronym, amirite SCUBA fans? Scuba might be the best one ever, but radar (RAdio Detection And Ranging) and laser (Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation) are pretty good too.
“big·ot (ˈbiɡət/) - noun: 1. a person who is intolerant toward those holding different opinions.” Big subject but I wanted to have you all give your takes. Two things have been bothering me lately in automotive articles and discussions. First, swearing in the titles and the use of needless profanity in main articles.…
