  1. I saw this as an article about women sunning themselves in the taint area, and that some places were not meant to take full sun. Why you need a tan on your sphincter is beyond my scope of understanding.
  2. Seems like this one was the charm, as it would have drained straight away. I parked at Wawa for all of 4 minutes and went from 14.5 to 10. It started, but barely, then you see the volt counter rocket up to full within seconds. One more and they get a lemon law friendly from Dewey Cheatum & Howe. But we shall see. My third GC in a row...but never had any issues with the others. $55g suv, who needs that crap.
  3. Iwould imagine your viewing habits would be the main data set, but heard if there is a cam built in, they can watch and listen to what you are up to. Bit of masking tape takes care of the video, but audio is a bit tougher I suppose. As such, we raely discuss how many kilos of blow are coming in next week,
  4. Well, its almost funny...I went back to the dealer each time. Last one (last week) they admitted that the tech plugged in his ODB reader and forgot to turn of the running lights. I would have noticed that I would think, but it was draining overnight down to about 9-10 volts. So far it has been ok, but we shall see. I would have thought a little bone like a free oil change would have been in order since I spent a total of 6 hours reading their old Motor Trend issues from 2007. But I didn't yet push the issue. The odd thing is that the GC has an aux battery as well, and that was the one killed the main. The service advisor had no idea where thus elusive component was actually located (you would think a Jeep service dept would know of such things). The main is stored under the passenger front seat, in the floor compartment, but even a brief browse of the Jeep forums did not reveal where the aux battery is located.
  5. Bought a cheap 800 amp charger to fix the Jeep battery that kept dying (3rd battery in a brand new vehicle with 500 miles on the odo). This one is made by Gooloo and comes with every possible connection in addition to the regular jumper clamps. Has a flashlight built in too. Nice little canvas storage case, takes up about the size of a small phonebook. For $60,it was a bargain since I can revive my tractor batteries that I fail to store properly every winter. And it will juice up pretty much anything in about 30 seconds. Holds enough for a dozen jumps of the truck, and then plugs into a regular wall socket for about 6 hours to fully restore the juice, and supposedly will hold that for about 6 months. Pretty handy when you are on the sand in the middle of nowhere all alone. The reason I mention this is that you probably have never heard of Gooloo. But so far I am impressed. I also hate to read badly translated Chinese instructions, so I emailed them to offer my services to update the manual into something more like proper English. The Chinese like to get flowery and end up mangling the text. They asked me what I charged for such a service, and I said just maybe some sort of accessory. I am not a copywriter by trade, so I wasn't looking for a cash payout. Just wanted to remove the references to fusion flux capacitors and wormhole warpdrives. So if you buy one, you can read my prose, and revel in the fact that you are in the company of a global juggernaut
  6. Just read an interesting article about the 65" size range. They said the manufactures are making no money on them (really cheap pricing), but they plan to make the profit on selling any personal info they can gather. Now I'mnot sure how much value my idle nose-picking while watching Parking Wars might be worth to marketing folks, but you can get around their collection efforts. Personally, I just use my Fios wifi to make life simple. Between that and my Prime membership, I have more than enough things to watch. I just don't have the desire to hook up a bunch of tech like many folks here. As an update, the TCL (which I never knew existed) is still doing great for a dirt cheap unit. But that is just a 32" 1080p. I see the 4k stuff going for around $500 or even less at bestbuy. 32 is too small to show off the differences, but 65 would. Vizio is one brand I would still shy away from, unless it was free, or meant for the kids room. Still am amused at the 105" unit at PC Richards a few years back, on sale for $15,000 marked down from $45,000 (!!) Not even sure I could fit that through the doorways in my house, lol. By the way, if you have an Amex card, you can use points on Amazon to offset the cost. Yeah, I charged around $20,000 over time to pay for the TV, but it isn't as if I went out of my way with that goal in mind. (I have pretty steep travel expenses for work)
  7. Last time I went, there was an army guy in the next lane shooting a Barrett 50. That was fun. I only got one shot, but it was a treat at $5 a pop.
  8. I got a 32" LCD from TCL recently (it fits the cabinet). It is Roku and all that but I just watch Discovery channel, lol. It works for 100 bucks. The Visios are cheap now in 65" so they can spy on you sitting there picking your nose. 4K is not yet supported but will be soon. Picture quality is pretty impressive. I used to hold Samsung as the gold standard, but I keep hearing otherwise lately. Visio is supposed to be junk, but for 400 bucks, you cant go wrong unless you are gaming hardcore.
  9. Looking to sell my daughters' Jetta, as she just moved to Hawaii for a new job. Here are the details: 2014 4-door, 2.0 liter turbo SE model (I think that is the engine size) - Auto trans. Upgraded stereo. Black interior/exterior, with purple trim accents inside (hey, she liked purple). Trim can be peeled off easily. About 76,000 miles, give or take. Engine is strong, I drove it a few days ago, and I am picky. Got 40mpg highway (!) Some scuffs on the front lip because she does not understand the concept of pulling into sloped driveways, but fixable. Car was rear-ended once by a woman texting, but rear bumper was repaired by pro body shop. No tracking issues at all. No electrical gremlins. Tires could be due up for replacement by next spring. She was (is) the second owner, purchased at VW of Hamilton about 3 years ago. Pics on my phone for texting if you want. Clean title. Pricing is all over the map for this model. I figure about 5900 is fair but open to offers, since I take care of the cars in the house, and I am pretty anal about the cars on a mechanical basis. You are welcome to have your mech examine it. text me at 609 424 4459 or pm here if interested. (calls are spotty since I ignore the 8 daily spam calls from Mumbai) Any questions, fell free to ask.
  10. So I went to change the battery in a flashlight of the metal duralight variety (metal, can drive a truck over it, etc). Anyway, I was surprised to see a 2600 mAh fat battery the size of a AA on steroids. Never seen one before. Doing cursory glance on Amazon yields a few rechargeable models and a few 2800mAh that appear to fit, but wonderingif a 2800 will cause any adverse effects. I don't want a rechargeable because they seem to run around $10 a pop to begin with, and I don't want to have to buy a charger. Per HD's site, they don't even carry them, it appears, Any inexpensive ideas?
  11. She has no plans to step down, according to her. Great! can't do the job but stick around anyway. You would think she would see the writing on the wall and spend her remaining time peacefully retired to be with her family, or whatever. But nope. I do still think any update on her is just written by an operative to keep up the charade long enough, although 5 more years s one big ask. Unless I see her posing with today's paper in hand, I don't buy any "update" that appears in the MSM. Call me jaded. Heck, even a newspaper is easy enough to p-shop.
  12. Pardon my ignorance Jack, but does that require a pistol permit? I am not familiar with the designation for legal classification.
  13. Funny...You can request that I grow a third arm. No assurance that it will happen.
  14. Apparently dead people aren't transported without some sort of cover (sheet?), nor do they have giant heads that look amazingly like Anthony Bourdain. Lol. Little Jeff is recovering from facial surgery in Tel Aviv right now.
