      Due to the liability concerns, I think I'd...

      Due to the liability concerns, I think I'd concentrate on some simple tips on how to keep your car in decent shape so as not to get a blowout to begin with. Checking tire pressures and the penny...

      I don't know. I can see how building flight time could be considered compensation, but it would be really hard to prove. On the very small chance that anyone even found out about the arrangement,...

      Really? You couldn't pay me to take that T-bird or the Yugo.

      Well, maybe I didn't communicate that correctly. It looks closer to this in real life:

      Definitely better than anything that's ever been on a...

      I've seen a lot of Ferraris in that color. In person it's not really beige, more like a "champagne".

      And that TR8 ad cracks me up. "Made on the last day of production". So you mean it was...

      I may be a bit biased having worked on the V-22 for 5 years, but I think the tilt-rotor is a much better way to go. An armed version of the Bell 609 with a skinny Cobra-style fuselage would be...

      Actually, a barrel roll is a pretty benign maneuver. Just about anything can do one.

      That was a little harsh without knowing the whole story. He didn't say he was having his buddies pay for the whole thing. He's allowed to collect money for operating expenses so long as he pays his...

      When the first 1L concept came out, the first thing I thought was "I'd love to make a version of that with a wider track and a motorcycle engine." I guess someone at VW is on my wavelength. Too bad...

      I just want to point out that just because something is riskier than another option, it doesn't make it "extraordinarily dangerous." As you point out later in your post, the odds of dying in a car...

      Well, it is pretty hard to machine a hollow tank in one piece. But, of course, it's also monumentally stupid. A stamped tank would be lighter, probably stronger, and much, much cheaper. And, if...

      Probably because of the name. He should have went with "Wayne's World".
    13. If you look at the scale on the satellite image,...

      If you look at the scale on the satellite image, the lot is only about 1000 feet corner to corner. There's no way to land much of anything short of a helicopter on property that size. The listing...

      Is the Remos certified as a light sport aircraft?...

      Is the Remos certified as a light sport aircraft? If so, I'd look into the restrictions and if any of them are deal-breakers for you. It's not immediately clear to me if the sport pilot...

      I'm curious what the average vehicle age is for those saying "reliable". Pretty much any car these days will make 100,000 miles without anything other than oil changes. If you're buying used cars...

      I just read the first couple of pages, so forgive me if this has been said:

      Motorcyclist and liter bike owner here. That guy was going way too fast for a road with crossing traffic. I feel sorry...

      That's the crux of it. I had an altitude chamber ride a while back that really opened my eyes to it. It was a refresher course where you were supposed to simply recognize a couple of symptoms of...

      I think a banana is a type of plantain, actually.

      And as long as we're going to have to have this discussion, the reason most definitions of sports car say "usually" 2 seats is to cover cars...

      Just bought a 330 myself. Big things to look out for are the cooling system (specifically the water pump, radiators to a lesser extent), front ball joints, and rear subframe cracks. The subframe is...

      There's a lot more to design than just making something pretty. An architecture prof I had put it best when he said that the best designs are the ones no one notices. If you can approach a new...
