Someone Got A Raise. Someone Got A Raise.

Seen in my parking garage with paper tags. Not my car, not my raise. Oil is up, so are expenditures (my office building is primarily taken up by an oil company).

Wife: We Need To Watch Some Sports. Wife: We Need To Watch Some Sports.

Me: Okay, here you go.

Middle Aged Man Drives, Gets Cut Off, Then Drives Angry Middle Aged Man Drives, Gets Cut Off, Then Drives Angry

Wife tried calling in an order for Japanese takeout, but they couldn’t hear us on the phone. Being the nice guy hubby that I try to be, I decided to drive down, place the order in person, and wait. That was my first mistake.

BRO!! BRO!!

BRUH!!! BRO BRUH!!!!!!

My First Observed Cell Phone-Distracted Motorcycle Rider My First Observed Cell Phone-Distracted Motorcycle Rider

The stupid son of a biscuit was beside an 18-wheeler at a red light on a 50 MPH 8-lane divided state highway. Hardly any traffic. Light turns green. Truck starts driving off. The motorcyclist, however, was too busy texting his other biker bros to notice the rest of the traffic headed towards his tailpipe at AT…

Porsche Recalls 1,700 Cars Due To Axles and Wheels LITERALLY Falling Off Porsche Recalls 1,700 Cars Due To Axles and Wheels LITERALLY Falling Off

Porsche Cars North America, along with the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission, jointly issued the recall on May 22. It hasn’t been seen in the media as of yet. Although no one has been injured from the defects, Porsche is REFUNDING owners the full price of the car to get them out of the public’s hands. …

FACT: I Was The Only Decent Driver On The Road This Morning.  FACT: I Was The Only Decent Driver On The Road This Morning. 

Speed limit, 50 MPH, but 25% of the drivers were going 35-40 (with about 20 car lengths of free space in front of them). 25% of the cars were playing real life F&F and cutting around the slow drivers like they were running from The Rock driving a 3,000 horsepower MRAP.

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…

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).
