If you were thinking of buying an SS — which I heartily recommend if you can swing it — do buy a new one.

Not really worth it to buy a used one. Not if you can bargain at all.

I paid not that much more than that, and got the full manufacturer warranty and two free oil changes and services, too (for a car like the SS is a $200-$250 value or so).

Even the olders SSes are pretty dear.

I expect it’ll actually rise in value (as the GTO did) after people realize what they missed.

I also figured out why a few people have asked me at gas stations and such, “Is that a BMW?”



I like how BMWs look just fine, but won’t pay the extra 50% for the nameplate, so that works for me!

Social Darwinism

Today, Charles Darwin would be hounded out of science and academia as he was a slow worker and didn’t use any math in his work.

In fact, many of the world’s greatest scientists of past era would receive the same treatment.

If anyone thinks that is a good thing, then you and I have some huge fundamental disagreements.

What a strange world we live in where we have Juggalos set to do battle with Nazis with Donald Trump as President while a hurricane destroys Texas.

If you’d written this in a novel twenty years ago, it’d’ve been dismissed as utterly implausible trash.

But now we live in an utterly implausible trash reality.

Ah, wish we still inhabited such a footloose and fancy free era where we cared about the Juggalo opinions on magnets vs. whether Nazis kill them in street fighting.

Why I do not support Kamala Harris:

She’s a torture-supporting neoliberal.

Simple as that.

However, I do support Tulsi Gabbard and Tammy Duckworth.

Almost everything everyone does on Twitter these days would be much better-suited to a blog.

It’d be easier to read, easier to link, and much easier to aggregate.

The future seems to be using stupider and worse technology so you can get idiotic, low-value things done more quickly.

La voiture

Co-worker riding in my car after I did a quick u-turn and sprinted away like a demon with a tailwind of hellfire.: “This…this doesn’t drive like a family sedan.”

He didn’t have any idea what the car was. Such a fun car to drive!
