My sister was one of the first years in the 160k range. I'm not crying for her or anything, but I think I might rather dig holes for 8 hours a day than pore over endless contracts and menial bullshit for 12 hours a day and 6 days a week like she was doing. She gets paid a lot, but it's fairly soul-crushing shit. You… » 10/13/14 5:37pm 10/13/14 5:37pm

Yes it does have more to do with the law thank anything. But it's yet another anecdote about how the "free" market doesn't really benefit everyone and it's set up to benefit shareholders and the top execs. Another affirmation that trickle down economics doesn't work and another reason why the government meddling in… » 10/07/14 2:07pm 10/07/14 2:07pm

I've REALLY REALLY wanted a bike for a long time. I feel like Miami might not be the best place to have one. I lived in India for about 6 months and rented a Royal Enfield for about 2 weeks.

For most people in-wall in-ceiling speakers are a great solution, but the best speakers in the world have a lot of engineering in the box surrounding… » 9/30/14 8:30am 9/30/14 8:30am

Erroneous. C3 under the C2...MAYBE. Other than that, why is the C4 even allowed on the list anywhere except at the bottom. C3 gets unfairly panned because it spanned such a long time and it eventually got pretty shitty looking. But the early C3s were pretty magical. » 9/25/14 1:47pm 9/25/14 1:47pm

Just a followup on this. Turns out that dirty oil had gummed up a valve and forced it open, the oil basically leaked internally everywhere, causing a cylinder coil to short and causing about 500 bucks in repairs, which was less than I expected. The car appears fine but there's a lesson. 10k to 13k intervals that… » 9/25/14 10:35am 9/25/14 10:35am
