The dreaded beer piercing hinged top Beatle . As long as there beer in the house you can't get rid of them . Also commonly called the Relative beatle for the same reason !!

You'll probably have to move cause there's been too much beer consumed at your address and the residual spillage will attract for decade's !!

I almost spit my whiskey out laughing at the last part there!

I know what you mean. I test drove a taco before my frontier. HATED it. I didn't like the way the engine or transmission felt, but I really hated the seating position.

I don't have any of these complaints with my frontier. But, my previous truck (2004 Colorado z71), yes, absolutely.

When I bought my D21 I test drove a Tacoma of a similar vintage (mid-90s). The cab felt shorter but maybe wider, and the transmission felt like the town bicycle after everyone had their ride - LOOSE.

I was actually starting to like the idea of a 4 runner till I rode in my bosses kids fully loaded taco, hands down the most anemic in the power department vehicle I've been in, in a long time.

F150's are solid, despite what your uncle cleetus told ya

The vg33 is very slow compared to the vq40, but, it makes peak torque at a much lower rpm. This doesn't help much going down the road, but doesn't matter on dirt roads. I'll take my 2013 Frontier as a daily of my 2003 Xterra any day. That being said, even without lockers in the X, I still prefer it off road.

Also, I find the seats are a bit more comfortable in the first Gen, and I find the 2nd Gen seats to be very comfortable.

First episode of Andor

is boring

did not enjoy
OK. Here's the thing. The first two episodes suck out loud. I struggled to get through them. I literally didn't give a shiat about the people. Who are these idiots? Why do I care?

Then I watched episode 3. Holy shiat. They brought it all home. They gave me a reason to give a shiat. They showed what this show was going to be. And from that point I was completely 100% all in. Holy shiat. The rest of the season was some of the best TV of the year and the best Star Wars in a long time.

It's Star Wars for grown ups. And I'm here for it.

I stopped after 3. It felt too campy. I know that the Marvel content doesn't take itself seriously. But thst seemed like another level. And not a Ryan Reynolds / Deadpool level.
I just finished 3 yesterday. Not sure what I think yet

Maaaan what?

This first episode is horrible. The rest is that good? Really? Dammit.
True story. Now. Episode 2 is also bad. And hard to get through. But the payoff in episode 3....the juice is worth the squeeze. And after episode 3 it just keeps getting better.

You have to keep in mind. The Star Wars that we know and love (or not) has always had a children's target. So there always had to be something to suck in kids. Andor is not that. At all.

I watched the first two episodes of Andor on Hulu then realized Hulu only had the 1st two available so now I don't get to watch anymore cause I don't know how to find it "free" style...

This is a real movie. With real actors. "Based" on a true story. Huge air quotes. There was a bear in 1985 that ate a bunch of coke that fell from a plane in the woods of Tennessee. But it just ODd and died.

But holy ufck. This movie looks hilarious. I can't wait. I'm in. All the way.
Im SO in on that.
