I AM ABOUT TO GO NUTS AND I NEED YOUR HELP. I AM ABOUT TO GO NUTS AND I NEED YOUR HELP.

I need to know how to remove the passenger side wiper arm on a 2011 Ford Expedition. There are no clips on them to undo that magically pops them off (like every other god damned large Ford vehicle), and removing the nut doesn’t move them AT ALL. I have searched the google high and low, and have not found any…

Meats, Ranked Meats, Ranked

If you don’t agree, come at me. You’re wrong and I’ll prove it.

Because Cell Phones Are Too Mainstream Because Cell Phones Are Too Mainstream

This Acura TL Type S driver is keeping it old school. Also, considering the flex that antenna had under MILD acceleration, I firmly believe that this radio whipsaw will take out the side mirror under severe DEcelleration.

“Now That My Pay Structure is Set... “Now That My Pay Structure is Set...

...I don’t have to keep pretending that everything is going according to plan.” Never let anyone tell you that Elon Musk is an idiot.

I SAID FUCKING STOP ALREADY. 

Is it illegal to start a Kickstarter account for funds to begin a much heftier reward for this dickhead’s capture?!

I Want This Chair.  I Want This Chair. 

And if you don’t, you’re a fool.

TSLA Is Having A Bad Afternoon.  TSLA Is Having A Bad Afternoon. 

All because CNBC chose to publish a little exposé re: former and current employees talking about production delays. It’s actually pretty salacious. Link after the jump.

How To Lose 70 Pounds In A Year.  Seriously.  How To Lose 70 Pounds In A Year.  Seriously. 

2017 was a fucking battle. I’m not kidding. It didn’t have anything to do with politics or work or family. It had to do with fighting myself, and I won.

A Couple of Reasons Why J. Westbrook is Correct RE: 2019 Ram Hellcat A Couple of Reasons Why J. Westbrook is Correct RE: 2019 Ram Hellcat

Look at this picture. See that “7:07” stamped on the infotainment center? Of course you do. This is the picture from Westbrook’s article about the 2019 Ram Rebel possibly coming with the ego-enlarging Hellcat engine (for the record, I’d sure as shit buy one if it had that power plant). But he missed two other…

Surviving Texas Ice-mageddon 2018, Day One of Two: The Reckoning. Surviving Texas Ice-mageddon 2018, Day One of Two: The Reckoning.

The forecasts were wrong. The expected impact was discounted. No one imagined the extent of the despair and cold that would actually occur. Meteorology failed us, and we are paying the price.

Aaaaand My Office is Closed. Aaaaand My Office is Closed.

So are the schools in the area. No snow, just skating rinks for flyovers and overpasses (of which we have many).

Semi Falls Off Overpass Onto Camry in Texas, Everybody Walks Away Unscathed Semi Falls Off Overpass Onto Camry in Texas, Everybody Walks Away Unscathed

A semi tractor trailer traveling southbound on US-59 through Sugar Land, Texas somehow flipped over the guardrail of an overpass and fell on top of a Toyota Camry yesterday. There were no serious injuries to report, thus earning Toyota a customer FOR LIFE.

When You Have A Son... When You Have A Son...

...but he gets into death metal, has sunken eyes, and grows to be larger than you, and you’re now scared of him. Mark IV looks like he’s scared to send prototype Junior to his room.

Best Car Color in The World? Best Car Color in The World?

There are many great hues for many great cars. Lexus’ new Candy Blue, for example, is a pretty damned blue. But, in my humblest of humble opinion, Rossi Bia on this awesome ass Lambo Aventador SV, is by far the most striking. Like Obama for Chris Matthews, it sends a “thrill going up my leg”, in a mostly non-sexual…

I Woke Up at 5:30 This Morning I Woke Up at 5:30 This Morning

Without an alarm clock. After a slightly annoying (not even bad) dream. Instead of trying to go back to sleep, I got up, had some coffee, took the dog out to pee, and watched a couple of road rage videos. Have I officially become one of THOSE old people?!

I Wrenched On My CTS.  It Did Not Blow Up.  YET. I Wrenched On My CTS.  It Did Not Blow Up.  YET.

I had a misfire in cylinder 3, according to the diagnostic tool that my mechanic so graciously lended me for five minutes. It was prominent in every day driving, as well. So, I went to the zone. AUTOZONE.

Asshole Narco Traffickers  Asshole Narco Traffickers 

Someone apparently covered my car and the surrounding area with very poor quality cocaine.

Adventures Via Morning Commute Adventures Via Morning Commute

What’s great about my drive to work is that is almost void of stop-and-go traffic, but that doesn’t mean it’s not eventful.
