He didn't kill himself because he was going to be extradited, he killed himself because he was stuck in jail with nothing to do but brood for 9 months awaiting an extradition hearing, and he lost all...

Holy crap that was fast. Those people stained and sealed my deck like it was their job or something.

Why do I have to spend extra money to fix the factory's bad design? I did that with the Passat and I don't want to do it again. I have a full-time job, a full-time girlfriend, a full-time house, and...

I'd be lying if I said I never considered a WRX, or a turbocharged Forester back before the Forester became a tall American-style SUV. But I've ridden in a couple Subarus and they all ride like...

I know what slipper clutches are designed for, but like many things they can be used for purposes adjacent to their original intended use. For example, on my FF-03 I have a modified DN-01 slipper...

Millennials were born in 1982-1996 -- young enough to turn 18 after January 1st 2000, old enough to have been at least kindergarten-age on 9/11. I'm not sure why you think people in that age group...

I was surprised to hear there is little-to-no wind in Singapore. I expected there would be a continuous sea-breeze. But apparently that's something that mostly occurs in temperate regions, not...

Yep, that's America for you.

See also: Everyone in the NYC area who thinks that knowing a bunch of Italians means they are authorized to intentionally mispronounce "Mario" as "Mayrio".

That explains why she sings so damn quietly. Her voice sounds like an aftereffect applied to the lead singer's voice.
