Re: The time has come to join the Placidemic of 2018

There’s a used diller “chain” (3 or so locations) in the philly area that’ll let you just take the car out, just have to give your driver’s license for a copy before you go. At least, they used to do that years ago, not sure if it’s still that way. Sent from the Beer Depository Which? CarSense? Yep...

We’re probably a year or two from Jessie getting out.
Audrey was doing pizza and French fries the other day. No idea where she learned that.

It's just a smooth whiskey. How is that disgusting? That's like saying Corona or Bud light sucks. It isn't the best but who doesn't like Corona or Bud ?

Re: Healthcare and the .Gov

Well, it's pretty apparent what's driven higher costs. Ask the hospital/doctor what your out of pocket cost would be if you paid in cash/yourself vs. insurance. Insurance gets a higher rate, which is ridiculous. It's akin to the military ordering 7,000 $3000 shovels to burn remaining budget funds. ...

I like this. Sent from the Beer Depository I think your car would be quite fun to beat on. I got the impression from the test drive that low RPM it's pretty normal unlike the 8th gen which made zero power at low revs. And power built nicely as the revs climbed. Keep it high and it should be pretty ...

You know it didn't feel THAT slow to me, then again 7 seconds isn't "slow" https://www.caranddriver.com/reviews/2018-subaru-wrx-sti-test-review Ok, so 7 flat, my bad. I guess that's right.

I haven't slept on the couch in ages. Last night was weird, my brain kept making shit up to keep it racing almost all night. No bueno when that happens. I've been getting the hint from my body to go to bed around 930-10pm the last few nights. Is this 30? :iono: Yes. Sent from the Beer Depository
