OT 21: DFD Giveth and DFD Taketh Away

luckily both of hours slept through the night at 6-8 weeks mark 90% of the time. from 3 mo on they were 99% sleeping 7:30 pm til 5:30am Sounds like a dream. I’m hoping ours is at least close to that. I imagine the lack of sleep is what makes all of the rest of it such a challenge. Like Max said, an...

Soothes “himself within the hr” sounds like they are letting him scream himself to sleep. :nice: Very possibly.

Your :plac: life is a rollercoaster. It swings in wild directions every day. I buy and sell cars constantly, but the general direction of my car buying is nothing like this. You need to make some decisions about what you actually need/want: - Do you want 2 or 3 cars? 2 (answered above) - Do you wan...

You know what you need? A cheap fun weekend car that scratches the interesting car itch. The Taco is more than fine for you as a daily/etc and the i4 is equally as such, boring/bland who cares they’re two new cars that are fairly robust. Yep... I was hoping the Taco would do the "fun weekend&q...

I am not advocating for buying this or making dumb decisions, but your prior struggles with vehicle purchases/decisions of what you want/keep seem to come from continuously talking yourself into rational math compromises instead of getting what the heart wants, when it wants it, and then attempting...

A question you should ask yourself. What vehicle, on your lenghthy list, would be worth the payment to you? If I was certain I would probably already buy one… I want the big boy RR the most.

I am overall pretty annoyed with the situation as it really threw a wrench into my car plans. I was hoping to have the IX be the family car... now I am left without one. And I am also stuck with the I4/Tacoma both of which aren't ideal for said duty. Once I get closure on the IX. I will try and fig...

Elon thread-Lets hate each other

Elon is an interesting case study on someone. I think he is equally anti-establishment enough as an individual, but he does well to cut the red tape as much as possible. Polarizing, and I don't like everything he does, nor do I hate everything either. It might seem like a cheap answer but nuance is ...

Happy for you man. Life is too short to do something you don't like if it can be avoided and this is an awesome step. Sounds like it's well thought out and you have the spousal support, so why not go for it? No better time than now. While it's sad to see the car go, it sounds like it's part of a bi...

a lot of reddit posts like that are teetering between reality or an exercise in creative writing. a lot of these stories are not even real, just people karma farming on throwaway accounts.

I cringe at the idea of letting others perform this basic task which can still be fucked up so many ways. Overtightening or undertightening of filter and drain bolt. Failure to use fresh crush washer or simply delete it. Overfilling or underfilling oil. I had not considered this error I will add to...
