    [–] Million dollar humidor for cigars. MjrJWPowell 2 points ago in mechanical_gifs

    It senses movement near it and opens up, and then closes again.

    Yeah, I doubt gravity has much effect on a clock perpendicular to the ground

    Just doesn't translate well to mobile, no ads.

    Yes. 24 Gran Crü Cuban cigars wrapped in 4 gold leafs.

    [–] "Free Beer" MjrJWPowell 14 points ago in assholedesign

    It isnt hard to understand why considering that the estimated time to read the read all TOS agreements, for the average number of websites people visit in a single year, would take 25 straight days.

    [–] This 25ft long trailer? MjrJWPowell 2 points ago in whatisthisthing

    Could also be for a single engine plane. Saw one at my local bar a few months ago.

    [–] People who ran into the "weird kid" from school years later, how did he or she turn out? MjrJWPowell 25 points ago in AskReddit

    Get help. I just got out of rehab, and you'd be surprised how being in a controlled environment for several weeks can help, if you really want it.

    [–] Stumbled upon (an homage to?) Paul Walker's Toyota Supra MjrJWPowell 1 points ago in carporn

    True, you can do it while you have the clutch depressed, but they call it double clutching for a reason. Hell, a lot of the time when I'm driving normally I don't even use the clutch while shifting up or down. And I only ground gears a few times while learning to do it.

    Tachometer, or tach, measures the revolutions per minute of the engine. If you're in third gear and just down shift to second gear the engine will have to produce more rpms to maintain the same speed. So say you're going 35mph in third gear. If you downshift to second gear your engine will need to be closer to 5000rpms to maintain that 35mph. It takes power away from the wheels in order for the engine to get up to that 5000rpms. If you hit the gas in neutral and rev the engine to just above 5000, and then shift into second you haven't lost any power to the wheels, except for the fraction of a second you revved in neutral.

    Granny shifting is just normal shifting: clutch in, out of gear, into next gear (up or down), release clutch pedal.

    As oposed to double clutching; which isn't really necessary for upshifting: clutch pedal in, out of gear, off clutch, goose the gas, clutch in, downshift, clutch out. It's used to rev match the tach to the gear so you don't lose power through the synchros. You can use it to upshift, but I've never found it to be really necessary other than to keep the double clutch habit.

    [–] ABC didn't apologize to Rosanne, it fired her. If Trump wants to be treated the same he should quit and blame Ambien. MjrJWPowell 2 points ago in esist

    In case you don't remember she was absolutely vilified after she did the anthem. Her response was that she's a comedien, not a singer, so wtf were they thinking asking her to do it, which most people went along with.

    [–] Frank Sinatra knew what was up MjrJWPowell -19 points ago in wholesomegifs

    That's a bit fucked up, because he threatened to get staff fired for a manager's/owner's decision.

    The worst is when you have to travel unexpectedly, and bring your laptop; but forget an HDMI cable.

    [–] What popular life advice do you disagree with? MjrJWPowell 1 points ago in AskReddit

    Just remember, YOU think a lot more about what they think about you; than they actually think about you.

    I know it's a r/wowthanksimcured post; but it is true.

    Life is about who you know, and luck. Anybody who tells you differently is lying.

    Money doesn't buy happiness, it just makes happiness easier to achieve.

    And with current no tolerance policies fighting back is the best way to deal with bullies.

    Good things happen to bad people mote often than good things happening to good people. And that's because bad people are willing to do whatever it takes while good people aren't. Mr Robot is a perfect example, and the current executive branch.
