The shifty writing and shorty reporting are the reasons I don't regularly visit this site anymore. Too bad Google Now still sometimes serves up an article that draws me in. Autoblog.com is much better and is now my daily car info stop. I realize this site, jalopnik, is not an outlet for jouralism. It is a blog. But… » 11/08/14 7:33pm 11/08/14 7:33pm

My brother and I once wondered into a Lotus dealer. When greeted, I told the salesman we could never afford it, but we're just car guys interested in the Exige and the new at the time Evoras. The very unbusy salesman, complete with English accent and driving shoes, entertained us for a good stint, and asked us if we… » 11/08/14 3:48pm 11/08/14 3:48pm

Language is very much the embodiment of religion. It is not a science. One can seemingly declare it's nature rather than examine it's logic, huh? » 10/15/14 8:24am 10/15/14 8:24am

I do not like any of the Skullcandy buds or phones. I've tried most of them. They don't sound great. I have a hard time spending money, no matter how cheap, on buds that just don't sound good. I'd rather pay $25 for good sounding buds than $2.50 for cheap crappy sounding ones. » 6/23/14 11:05am 6/23/14 11:05am

ISPs don't need to save more money on infrastructure. That is their only real product. We pay them for infrastructure. Now they want content providers to pay them as well. All while NOT providing either of us with more infrastructure. » 6/18/14 8:39am 6/18/14 8:39am

Sean Carroll! Woohoo! Great stuff. Check out some of his lectures on YouTube. The arrow of time and whatnot. What we know we know, what we know we don't know, and what we don't know we don't know and whatnot. (suck it Donny Rumsfeld) » 6/17/14 3:54pm 6/17/14 3:54pm

I am absolutely not going to buy on the first trip to your dealership. When shopping for my wife's car, our last purchase, we went comparison shopping. 4 dealers tried to sit us down and give us the "what's it going to take to get you into a car today" spiel. It was beyond that. They were plain pushy and rude,… » 6/05/14 11:22am 6/05/14 11:22am

So Walmart, for example, has the vast majority of their employees on part time, paying a non-living wage. Those people turn around and are supported by the gov through food stamps and a vast sea of other programs. Walmart is being subsidized by the gov. Record profits. Non-living wages. Gov subsidy to Walmart. » 3/11/14 10:47am 3/11/14 10:47am
