When I was 17, my dad bought a 1977 911. All of my previous attempts to learn to drive a manual had been embarrassing. I got it in the first trip in the Porsche. 20-years later this is the only car my dad has kept for any length of time and we still bond over it. They are such fun, amazing little cars.

I drove a white and blue 1983 K5 Chevy Blazer in 1994. Lord Almighty, how I resented that stupid Bronco chase. "It's a Chevy, not a Ford. It's a Blazer, not a Bronco." Like talking to a string of brick walls. » 6/25/14 3:02pm 6/25/14 3:02pm

I… » 6/11/14 4:31pm 6/11/14 4:31pm

The people who are off the road in the center of the median I get. The people who are stopped on the actual highway deserve to be punted out of the way. Fit a semi with a snowplow and send it through! » 6/10/14 3:06pm 6/10/14 3:06pm

I think this is one of the more reasonable answers to Fermi. I've believed for quite a while that assuming the only planets capable of developing life are ones that are Earth-like is arrogant and short-sighted. This belief assumes that everything is like us when in reality we're talking about an entire universe that… » 6/05/14 12:11pm 6/05/14 12:11pm
