      I guess you could say that. I exercise because I like exercising, not because I feel like I need to really be better at anything. Its probably why I never made it past Cat 3 racing bikes. Here's...

      I'm a big fan of Benchmade knives, but they cost a lot and I'm bad about losing knives. With that in mind, I got a bright yellow one. The model is a "SOG Flash II", there's a pic below. It was also...

      I wouldn't do it for too long. My experience isn't necessarily with lifting, but I know that with cycling and running, if I don't get on a program I end up overweight AND injured/overtrained.

      EV's are the way of the future, I'll definitely have one in 15 years.

      Easy there tiger, don't let that inner fanboy get too rowdy in there. I started the thread because I recalled something about a recall and manual transmission problems when the redesigned outback...

      I've got that in my truck already, and I suspect that's why it rides so poorly. It skips around over every bump, and everyone tells me that its because its a truck. I always say, "yea, a poorly...

      My truck really needs the rear suspension from the 4runner/FJ Cruiser. Leaf springs suck, and the leaf springs on the Tacoma suck even more than usual. I'd also like a bit more caster from the...

    10. Has Subaru fixed their manual transmissions in their Outbacks yet?

      I know there were issues when the new 2010+ body style was released, but I'm wondering if they've fixed them in the 2012-2014 models.

      Ah, Gotcha, those look like the mini-split of gas heaters. Electronically controlled? My floor furnace is on a wall-mounted thermostat, it seems like it wouldn't be too bad to have the furnace kick...

      The issue with gas tax is that it taxes the poor proportionally more. Poor people are unable to buy newer, more efficient cars, and tend to live farther out of the city because they're priced out of...

      What a waste of jail space. We need to fine people for doing **** like this, not throw them in jail.

      Ah, I don't know if I'm comfortable enough with electrical stuff to do it myself. Right now it's heated with a floor furnace that works pretty well. I wonder if I could use the floor furnace as the...

      You guys are crazy. I hate riding below 50F. When first started riding and was hardcore, I'd do down to 40F. If I'm cold, it's not fun, if it's not fun, there's no point. Its not like riding a...

      So I guess it was kind of a *wink*wink* *nudge*nudge* kind of job? They didn't bring the entire thing up to code when they did the swap?

      Well, a little update is due.

      I got a few quotes, and settled on one company to do the mini split installation. They were going to do a Carrier system with three evaporators, attached to one...

      I'm not sure how I feel about any Ferrari that's not red. I mean, maybe red is cliche, but then again, maybe its tradition. Tough choice. The car doesn't look bad in dark blue though.

      That's a really awesome idea. I was kidding about the Subaru Forester in my post, but I wasn't kidding about how horrible I thought driving and owning a car in New York was. That classic car club...
