    Got a watch on Friday after literally three years of shopping around and not being able to settle on anything. I'm very happy with my choice

    Looking pretty good for 53 years old, and keeping time just as well

    Whenever a vehicular incident occurs where the victim doesn't get the license plate I always thought to myself "how could you not do something so easy"

    After being in a road rage incident today, I totally understand. By the time I even realized what happened the vehicle was too far to make out the plate.

    Is today "drive like a drunk" day? I've had one Scion pull out infront of me, one bicycle nearly hit me, one van cut a corner way too sharp and nearly clip me, and a road rage incident with a Dodge Ram... I live in a town where most people don't have a drivers license, but this was a far higher quantity of incidents than usual.

    Something weird is happening this week, I discovered my Suburban was severely overheated to the point of piston ring failure, my dad's truck's a/c sprung a huge leak in the condenser, and I discovered a brake line leak in my Regal. Luckily I haven't had any close calls with crazy drivers this week, yet.

    Looking back at the ad, it seems like the wooden pedals are on the driver's side, as the owner was 'not comfortable' with the other pedals? I haven't a clue why anybody replace the stock pedals with wood.
    "The pedals with blocks are driver side, i wasn't comfortable, with how the pedals worked on other side, so i removed pedal part, which i have. "

    I'm amazed it doesn't have the typical Minnesota rust. Pretty much anything over 15 years old has rust on the rear quarter panels or undersides of the doors. A car being from out of state is a selling point, as our roads are pretty salty for the better part of the year.

    The steering wheel on the right is from an EZ-Go golf cart. You could get the clipboard steering wheel center and install it to give the car that country club feel.

    I was today years old when I found out that what I want to do for a living has a name and is actually in demand, in fact it's kind of a buzzword right now. Turns out I've wanted to be a DevOps engineer since I was 10 :p

    You know what makes me mad? The lack of movies based on Frankenstein. Talking about the actual book, not the legend it has become. Though I must admit, Gene Wilder's Young Frankenstein does look good...

    *Mandatory "Strong drink milk of human kindness". Sometimes I think that storyline in Fallout 4 is more accurate than most Frankenstein adaptations.

    I absolutely love Mel Brooks movies. Just keep in mind it’s a more a comedy and less a movie about Frankenstein’s Monster.

    Welp guys, I finally did it. I deleted my Reddit account. I feel less angry and more productive already.

    Fun fact: if /r/popular accurately reflected the state of the world, civilization would have collapsed in at least 5 different ways by now. Posts don't end up there by virtue of impartiality and accuracy, they end up there based on how many clicks they can attract and how quickly they can attract them. It's a content farm, designed to serve advertisers at the expense of the people.

    Oh, and I also got tired of the constant Keanu Reeves circlejerking and obscure Jojokes.

    I am never going to delete my account, i already had to deal with the loss of my 1st one with the correct name ''WhistlerXPWhistler7'' but, since you cant get acc names back, i have to deal with ''-WhistlerXPWhistler7'' now.. i wish i didn't delete it. :(

    It was created 2017 and then deleted mid 2018,

    Ditto, I've probably seen and own all of them by now. Most of my family can damn near quote Blazing Saddles word for word.

    Yeah, the book is quite the different beast. I will say that the movie adaptations are a little darker in some strange way. While the monster in the book was an [eventually] intelligent being with the ability to communicate and plan, just with the will to do bad, the movie monster is basically a toddler in a ~400 lbs shell. The tragedies that it brings on, the people it kills, the damage it does, it's not what the monster wants: it's just scared and confused. Classic case of innocence not being equal to harmlessness.

    "That's Fronkensteen." "My grandfather's work was doo doo!"

    Man I really need to watch that again at some point.

    I haven't seen all of Mel Brooks' films. The ones I've see are Young Frankenstein and Spaceballs, the latter probably being my favorite.

    Although I'm not much of a Skyline guy, this is pretty sick for a redesign.
