      :thumbup:

      A few other sharp cultural dividers:

      - Listened to Nirvana while Kurt Cobain was alive vs. "Dave Grohl's old band?"
      - You Can't Do That On Television vs. All That
      - "Dimpled chad"...

      Things like that happen because Pogs and Power Rangers hit right at exactly the same time (1993) and appealed to exactly the same age group (7-11 year olds). It wasn't cool for tweens to be into...

      Pogs were small fiberboard or plastic disks with collectible designs printed on them. They were used for a playground game similar to jacks or marbles. Invented in Hawaii (they were originally...

      no, no, no, 1981.

      I lived in the boonies so playground fads like pogs hit later than they did in the suburbs and cities.

      In my circle of friends we all thought Power Rangers was too kiddie when...

      It's funny to think how old that technology is yet how much fun it would be to recreate that kind of clock mechanism using a 3D printer. The basic design is super simple, you could use an off the...

      That is the dumbest thing I've ever heard of. It's not desirable for pedestrians or for drivers.

      I think like RENOG said it's all about the mall itself presenting the premium image regardless of format, indoor or outdoor. Since the '90s there was a strong association between outdoor "outlet"...

      Not all malls are empty, it's just that a shocking number of them are. Watching Dan Bell's Dead Mall Series on youtube, it's striking how many of these dead malls are in close geographic proximity....

      Just got one for my 2009 Forester.

      I'm thinking of taking them up on the offer of alternate transportation just to see what I can get out of them. No way to avoid using the front passenger seat....

      Picked up a pile of old Wera insulated screwdrivers off CL.:thumbup: Some mini pliers, tweezers, hemostats, and an old mil-spec Thorsen 1/4" socket/driver set.

      Also grabbed one of these at Costco...

      The office of the president is in chaos. The rest of the country is business as usual including the military and the rest of the government. With the president stepping down, presidential powers are...

      Kids make it weird, I guess.

      I'm not gonna lie. If something happened to my wife... I wouldn't rule out her cousins. :laugh: And they're single so no blended family awkwardness.

      Home Depot had these 2-packs of 4Ah batteries for $89 (their Black Friday price). Finally decided to pick them up for my trimmer and blower and hand vac.

      It looks great, but also looked HUGE up there on that pedestal at waist high. Looking forward to seeing one at a normal angle.

      There's a point where "different values" runs into basic human rights.

      That said, the headlines are slightly misleading - domestic violence still carries punishment including the potential for...

      The S12 200SX Turbo's hood "scoop" wasn't needed to clear anything on the US cars. Tons of room. For what its worth, that hood bulge is bolted in from the bottom and presumably the factory intended...

      :thumbup:

      For the past few presidents the plates on the presidential limo have been a way to make a subtle political message. Clinton and Obama were pro-DC-statehood and ran the "taxation.."...

      I will say it comes in around the size of the current CamCord (which still feels more "full size" to me than midsize...) and the closest thing on the market to it right now, the JDM Toyota Mark X...
