I've been hating on that guy for 15 years and I've never met anyone else that didn't absolutely love him. I'm torn now. I've always hated him, but I am sick of hearing that everything is somehow sexist. 

Oddly enough, I'm not a huge fan of his work, but I'm pretty sick of hearing that sexism against men is worse or that everyone's sexist or people being dismissive of it. Life is funny like that.

 

Going to drop God is Dead. It's starting to get too stupid for me, which is saying a lot.

I know we didn't buy any package, ours just says a loyalty coupon on it. Although I know for California you automatically get so many oil changes for free, so maybe thats also might be what they're referring to? I see my sales person soon because I have to go back for them to put a subwoofer in the car, I can ask for you then if thats cool?

Yeah, according to the forum, it's pretty inconsistent in regards to who gets it outside of getting the maintenance plan, which also extends to owners that get it when they call cs.

 

I'll take the code anyway you can get it...haha. $500 is a big chunk of change!

 

edit: Just placed my deposit. CAN'T WAIT

I can't find it, but my husband thinks he has it with his paperwork. I'll let you know when he gets home :)

My daughter thanks you!

 

The funny thing is that I think I remember getting one in the mail for $200 or $250 a little after I got my BRZ. I'm pretty sure I threw it away...haha.

Oh I forgot. 

 

I'm so tired today.

 

I'll post one tomorrow when I get home from work, its dark already now lol

 

I have to go back in a week, my husband had them order a subwoofer for the car so I have to go back for them to put it in. 

 

And I had thought you had ordered yours already?

No order yet. Got a slightly better offer on the car, so I'm at $700 under invoice. The only issue is the value of my trade. No point in $700 under if I'm low balled by $2k on my BRZ.

WRX auto is a CVT I believe....


Yes it is and it's not that bad actually. It doesn't "search for 'gears'" between 7-15mph, which is my commute everyday.

 

That reminds me, someone in my condo bought a garage queen 04 S2000 with 12k miles for $17k in yellow. She told me she always wanted one...haha. I think she had a prelude a couple years ago too. The seats on my BRZ are more wrinkled than hers! :rofl:

For less money you could by a far superior Pioneer 8100NEX that has Android Auto and Air Play. Might be putting one in my wife's car this summer.

True, but I also want push-button start and keyless access. I CAN'T GO BACK TO TAKING THE KEY OUT OF MY POCKET!!!!! IT AIN'T BALLER!!!!!

Went to go buy the last black WRX Limited with Nav in New England this morning and someone swept it out from under me while we were about to do the test drive. I guess I'll have to wait for the 2016 after all.

 

Ya, it is! And we added some other exhaust option on it from the factory so it's super loud :lol:

We're actually debating trading in my flex for a wrx for me. (His and hers according to my husband)

Get a BRZ instead. Trust me!

I applaud you good sir! Is your wife a contortionist? I can't imagine there being a lot of room in the front with the rear-facing baby seat.

 

That is...unless YOU'RE the contortionist!




#12603912 CAG Car Thread!

Posted by dohdough on 30 March 2015 - 04:30 PM

Hey there - so I'm not much of a car guy but figured I might ask here since there is a thread. My wife's 04 accord (appx. 110k miles) was rear ended while sitting at a stop light last week and now has been deemed totaled. We were not planning on buying a new car for a long while. We are actually in between houses. We just sold ours last week (yeah it was a busy week...) and haven't found one we like so we are in an apartment. That's what where we were planning on putting our money - not a new car! But such is life.

 

My wife is interested in an Acura TSX wagon. She thinks it would be somewhat similar/familiar to her old accord and she has brand loyalty and all. She is looking at 2012-ish models and wants the tech package and below 40k mileage. There just aren't many around. Closest ones are in Atlanta area about 3 hours away. Which is fine. I just wanted to ask if any of you have opinions on this wagon or Acura in general.

 

The reason she wants a wagon is for extra storage/hauling. We have two small kids. I had a 97 Volvo 850 wagon for 11 years and it was a good wagon but I'm just not sure about Volvo anymore. But that's the reason she wants a wagon - because we had one and really liked the size of it. We aren't familiar with Subaru but they seem to get good reviews. We have one friend who's outback exploded while sitting parked so that's kinda freaky. And one friend who has a forester and really likes it.

 

I've tried to discuss SUVs with her but she isn't interested. She wants a car-like experience.

 

Just for extra info - I have a 05 tacoma access cab - base model with only 25k miles on it ;)

Personally, I'm a Honda fanboy at heart and you can't go wrong with the reliability of a Honda or Toyota. The TSX wagon is a good car and I've been thinking about getting one as well, but the Mrs doesn't like the way it looks(I'm not the biggest fan either), so I had to eliminate it. Kudos on her wanting a car-like experience though. We need more of those types of people in the world to get those SUV/CUV monstrosities off the road...haha.

 

From what I remember of my drives in the 2nd gen TSX, it drives very competently and handles pretty decently compared to the RSX, which I had at the time. The pre-beak TL on the otherhand, pitched and rolled like the last gen Camry. I haven't driven a pre-2015 ILX, but for the money, you're better off in a similarly equipped Civic. For the 2016 ILX, you're pretty much at the Civic SI trim with leather seats and an auto tranny. The TLX? I REALLY like the TLX. Compared to my BRZ(I love this car), it's comfy as hell, handles great for such a big car, and almost too quiet. The reasons why I didn't buy one is because the tranny and electric parking brake has some pretty bad issues. Hopefully they'll be sorted out the next model year.

 

Acura, like any brand, can be hit or miss when it comes to the dealership experience. You can walk into a Toyota dealership and be treated like a king just like you can go into a Lexus dealer and be treated like a chump.

 

Subaru's aren't terrible cars and the Forrester handles surprisingly well. The 2015 WRX and 2015 Legacy are 7th and 5th safest cars on the road too due to reinforcement for small offset collisions.

 

If you've never had leather seats before, it will absolutely burn the shit out of you in the summer, which is something to think about with the kids. I'm sure you have them in convertables, so use some seat protectors and tint the windows(it's better for the leather anyways and it'll keep the car cooler). I'm pretty sure that Acura only uses perforated leather in their cars and that'll help with swamp ass.

Posted by dohdough on 24 March 2015 - 08:24 PM

Big Boss had a bit of a tumble last night.

 

To give an idea of the setup, we have her crib against our bed because she likes using the bars to pull herself up to stand. We pretty much use her crib as storage for some toys and books because she sleeps in bed with us. So last night, she was standing on our bed while trying to reach for a pillow in the crib. Somehow she got some leverage and flipped head first with her feet shooting in the air. I let out a "OH SHIT!" and saw her laying in the crib with a bewildered look on her face. The Boss asked if she was ok and then she started crying. We picked her up and she was smiling and laughing like 30 seconds later.

 

It was scary as hell that she flipped, but hilarious at the same time when her feet went in the air. It was like something out of a cartoon. :lol:

Are these argument's invalid since nothing will be solved because every argument a person makes, makes them further entrenched on their stance and unwilling to budge and vice versa on the other side? Meaning, isn't this all arguing for the sake of arguing?

Not at all. As you can see, we came to the mutual agreement that CAG is borked.

I had to do this in Word. I hate CAG 3.0 sometimes...
 

So what would that social group be called? What do we call lefter than left? The republicans have the religious right, what are the fringe called on the left?

Honestly? They’re called “liberals.” A vast majority of people don’t see or care for a difference regardless of where on the spectrum of liberalism a liberal is. It’s kinda like how you treat the term “feminist” actually. And I can't remember any time that "The Religious Right" was used in any way close to pejoritavely or has come close to having the same intensity in the zeitgueist.
 

It is ignorant to assume I am for or against social issues that I am arguing about in this thread. Like I said I see all angles. It seems like you fall back on false equivalence whenever you don't agree with something to dismiss it

I understand what a feminist is. I don't agree with the term being used for "a person that supports women rights". If that were the case, there would be no need for the term feminist because the majority of the population supports women's rights. I support women's rights, but don't call me a feminist. I am not worried about what my friends think about me or trying to get laid by someone that thinks they are a freedom fighter. Feminist has a taint associated with it. "Equalist", would probably be a more appropriate term for myself.

Saying and agreeing that people are equal doesn’t make it so. Feminism encompasses more than just equal rights. It’s also about having equal social, economic, and political power. We live in a male-dominated world and considering the disparities between the sexes, the term is still relevant. If the above is all that you were saying, we wouldn’t be having this line of conversation, but the truth of the matter is that you reduced feminism to a caricature of it. THAT’S the difference.

 

There's nothing wrong with being or calling oneself a feminist. That's the point. If you choose not to label yourself as one, that's your perogative, but don't bag on those that do or use stereotypes to reinforce a weak argument to make up for your lack of articulation on a subject.
 

Here is another false equivalence for you: If I were black by society's standards (technically I believe I am a black man trapped in a white man's body and I should be given just as much respect on the issue as someone who believes they are a man/woman trapped in the other sex's body), I wouldn't like being called the n word (even with an 'a') by anyone. There are certain words that have a taint no matter how much a group wants to "take it back".

That’s nice, but you’re not black by society’s standards and that’s not a false equivalence because you’re not comparing being called a nigg-er/-a to anything. Making a false equivalence would be saying that calling someone a cracker/honkey has the same cultural baggage as being called a nigger because both are racial slurs. The latter is the exact type of argument you’re making with the Arrow/Joker picture and Batgirl/Joker picture along with your whole double standard flag waving.


 

I don't like either of the covers, but in a democratic republic I can voice my concern by protesting or I can protest with my wallet. Unfortunately the latter has been taken away by the former. So in theory the SJWs (for lack of a better term) are taking away my freedom of choice. If they were open minded they would protest after the cover came out.

Tell me again how you’re not using that term pejoratively? Maybe you should blame DC for taking away your voice because ultimately, they were the ones with the power to print the cover.
 

I've been to protests and I have seen passionate organizers and a large crowd taking pictures of themselves or staring at their phones the majority of the time they were there...which in most cases was long enough to snap a selfie and leave.


Tangent rant: We live in a society where people are up in arms over everything, yet they forget about it a week later. Is New Orleans rebuilt? How is Fukushima doing? How about the Exxon Valdez oil spill? (25 years ago-still not paid out or cleaned up) What about the people that lie about an issue to bring attention to it? "Hands up" "Hands up" What a fucking joke. You have an adult who stole and criminally assaulted another person and was resisting arrest (possibly more) and they are portrayed as a child, who's identity was mistaken with another person, and was surrendering peacefully, that was slaughtered in the street. Did he need/deserve to die? No. Was he Emmett Till? No.



People can say what they want about the right wingers, but the guys that have the "Obama Hitler" signs that hang out at my post office seem to be in it for the long haul (all 2 of them :lol: ). Even though I want to destroy their signs every time I pass them, I silently admire their dedication to their cause.

-Numbers are numbers in a protest. As long as those photo opportunists weren’t the majority of protestors, who cares.

-Brown was the straw that broke the camel’s back. It was about more than that one shooting. There’s a thread in Vs. if you want to discuss.

-It’s interesting that you don’t feel the same about “feminists.”
