re: Formula 1 Winter Testing Thread - TouchedTheAxeIn82
[quote]Wish we could fast forward to next year, and the chaos that hopefully the new car design will bring.[/quote] (For newer fans) 2009 was an amazing year for F1. Major rule changes changed the look of the cars, but the "double-diffuser" loophole saw the former Honda team (turned into Brawn-...

re: Formula 1 Winter Testing Thread - TouchedTheAxeIn82
[quote]I’m still a new fan to F1 so it’s been rough getting my head around the lack of parity between teams.[/quote] The F1 mentality is that it's an engineering series—the innovation and differentiation between the cars is the main feature. For the last few decades that means that one to three tea...

re: Nonbinary person complains of being asked, 'Are you a boy or a girl?' during haircuts - TouchedTheAxeIn82
I don't get it. If people are asking you if you're a boy or a girl, doesn't that mean you've reached your goal of looking ambiguous, which is befitting your non-binaryness? Mission accomplished. ...

[quote]Anyone looking for earbuds on a budget, I recommend the Anker Soundcore Liberty Neos.[/quote] I looked into the Liberty Neo and it was easy to give them a try at $40. So far they're fantastic. Not perfect (micro USB, no volume control), but they're comfortable, and the battery lasts long eno...

re: How many miles on your vehicle(s)? - TouchedTheAxeIn82
1,600 mi on my 2020 Civic. I only had about 160K on my 2002 Subaru WRX. I drove that car for 17 years and loved it to the end. But it got terrible gas mileage so I had to move on. It still looked great when I sold it—no door dings or major scratches. ...

One day I was standing on the top of Mt. Whitney, the [b]highest[/b] point in the lower 48 (at 14,500 ft).

[quote]Glacier Point, Yosemite[/quote] Ha! I'm glad you posted that. I made my own collage a while back, with me in the upper left. I set up my tripod and had my girlfriend take the shot. I didn't have the balls to stand up. Then I made her get out there for a pic. She wasn't real happy about that....

re: Horse Girl on Netflix - TouchedTheAxeIn82
The Duplass Brothers were the producers. They also produced Safety Not Guaranteed. That was another "is this person a nut case?" movie. SNG was a way more fun movie but they both ended in the same (IMO) disappointing way. I think they could have been far more clever and subtle about the endings. ...

re: Arrogance vs Narcissism - TouchedTheAxeIn82
[quote]If you've ever had the displeasure of knowing/working with Narcissistic personality disorder you'll never forget it or mistake it for simple arrogance.

re: Anyone else annoyed by the influx of Chinese knockoffs on Amazon? - TouchedTheAxeIn82
[quote]I am convinced Amazon sells knockoff products that are in name brand packaging.[/quote] This was a problem with memory cards a while back. I think it's more of an issue with 3rd party sellers, but I think even Amazon had to tighten up their supply chain. A while back I was looking into a ...

One problem with the glut of Chinese copies of products, is all the fake reviews on Amazon. If you're interested in a product and relying on the Amazon reviews, run the page through this site, which analyzes the authenticity of the reviews: [link=(https://www.fakespot.com/)]https://www.fakespot.c...

re: Woman Waits Until She Is 41 To Lose Her Virginity - TouchedTheAxeIn82
OK, I finally actually read the Huffpost article, and she eventually realized (from therapy) that she was the problem. But when she broke her bad habits and found an available partner, the buildup to the first time they had sex was still ridiculous and fraught with too-high expectations. For him to ...
