      Someone asked me for my green chile recipe via PM. Here it is.

      Charlie's Green Chile

      NOTES:

      - I prefer a big enameled cast iron Dutch oven for this recipe. A slow cooker could also work...

      Sounds to me like he's got strong opinions, strong emotions, and a ****load of confidence. Sounds like something Bob Lutz or Ferdinand Peich would have said. Frankly, personally.....I think it's...

      This is a better family car, and families are the only ones who reliably buy five-door vehicles.....so the vehicles families buy are what come here, as opposed to the wagons that car dorks think...

      Meanwhile, over at Consumer Reports.....



      The iPhone 6 Plus deformed with 90lb of pressure, and the case separated under 110lb, more than the regular iPhone 6. It's less strong than some other...

      Again, guys: they sell diesel Sprinters and Transits here, right now, with chassis-cab options. Buy one, throw an aluminum flatbed with stake sides on there, paint it orange, toss on some Geolandars...

      It'd help, but it wouldn't eliminate it. High tension doesn't mean there's no slack, because the cable is going to get pushed around by a variety of physical, atmospheric, and solar forces, so it...

      Well, if so, this ain't it. That'd be the Allroad or the 3-series touring with xDrive.

      The fear and loathing of the CVT is pretty...

      The fear and loathing of the CVT is pretty overblown. It's no more objectionable than a typical automatic. Rewarding and rich in feedback, no, but for a utilitarian family car it's quite at home.

      No, you'd need a bunch of thrusters to control motion of the cable itself, as well - whipcracks, wobbles, and jump-rope movements could occur even with a perfectly stationary origin and terminus. ...

      This entire argument rests on so many strawmen and is so incomplete and twisted that it can't be the result of simple ignorance.

      Arguably, the personal device market is so mature at this point that revolutions are going to become further apart and less individually significant. When was the last time we really saw a truly...

      I suppose so. The XV didn't get my purchase - reluctantly, sadly - because I really needed a wagon back, not a hatch, and the dealership was knocking stacks off the Outback every time I said...

      I wouldn't call it contrived so much as....crafted. It's so confident and matter-of-fact on the surface that I'm sure it reads magnificently to your average nonscientist. He even anticipates nearly...

      Subaru doesn't really prioritize outright volume - not that they're hurting for that much either lately, because they're outselling VW. But they're doing that by focusing on a certain kind of...
