    [–] This is what Intercooler icing looks like. The_Original_Miser 3 points ago in tdi

    I don't know about the newer ones, but my mk4 jetta's egr "fell off" but still has the ASV.

    [–] This is what Intercooler icing looks like. The_Original_Miser 1 points ago in tdi

    Exactly.

    Thank goodness for extended warranty, for when my car needs a new engine, vw is on the hook. Then I will tune it and rip all that crap out.

    So far, my winter front is working...for the moment.

    You are also correct that the TSB intercooler does not necessarily fix the problem.

    [–] Hey cunty right-wing Anti-Choicers. Yep. I, the "dark heart" of the pro-choice movement have no regrets about aborting twin crotch goblins. DIE MAD ABOUT IT. The_Original_Miser 9 points ago in childfree

    Exactly.

    Such a divide by zero argument. I can't wrap my head around it.

    Like you said, if your (not you specifically) penta aborted you, you wouldn't be here, and wouldn't know that you're not here. So the point is moot.

    [–] Northam's emergency declaration holds no water according to Virginia law The_Original_Miser 1 points ago in Firearms

    I agree that it would be unlikely.

    ..but I think it is that kind of action that will be required. I'm talking mass noncompliance/walkouts/etc.

    [–] Northam's emergency declaration holds no water according to Virginia law The_Original_Miser -1 points ago in Firearms

    I mean, if they all said "Hell no." you're not firing and replacing all LEO at once. Strength in numbers.

    [–] NOPE! I won't take another UberConference/webinar/WebEx/sales call! How do you guys handle these guys?!? The_Original_Miser 2 points ago in sysadmin

    I think my CDW rep quit/moved on.

    When I logged in this morning his face was gone and not listed anywhere. I hope it's just a glitch.

    :(

    [–] Northam’s emergency decree is illegal in its own writing The_Original_Miser 6 points ago in gunpolitics

    Yep.

    Leaving out the 2A parts of it, the words and phrases are just plain tyranny. How could anyone not see that?

    Stay strong VA. This is a very dangerous game the governor is playing.

    Someone should run him out on a rail a-la O Brother, Where Art Thou?

    [–] Florida Senate panel crosses with NRA, passes bill to close ‘gun show loophole’ The_Original_Miser 10 points ago in UpliftingNews

    Open up NICS to the public then and GTFO of here with your back door registry.

    No?

    Then it's not a loophole. Shall not be infringed.

    [–] I didn't buy it for kids, dammit. The_Original_Miser 3 points ago in childfree

    Exactamundo.

    Going to be interesting to see what kind of bingos I get once the NC cones out of winter hibernation.

    [–] Dad passed away: His condo HOA sent me a nasty letter since I'm not 55+ The_Original_Miser 63 points ago in fuckHOA

    You handled that a lot more professionally than I would have (in the letter itself).

    Also, my condolences for your loss from one Internet stranger to another.

    [–] Treating patients in supply closets final straw for ER doctors in Kentville The_Original_Miser 0 points ago in nottheonion

    100% this.

    Imagine that you didn't have to stay at a shitty company/boss/work environment because they just happened to have a rather stellar health care plan/coverage.

    It would give the working folks tremendous power and force companies to offer other benefits to lure the good workers.

    [–] Gov. DeWine Says Legalizing Marijuana for All Ohio Adults Would Be a Mistake The_Original_Miser 4 points ago in Ohio

    I'd be interested to know if it failed due to the nature of the bill (monopoly) or due to the scare mongering attack ads that they ran?

    Personally I voted for it, as once it's legalized you can't put the cat back in the bag.

    [–] I’m one of those crazy ppl who buys a Miata in January The_Original_Miser 2 points ago in Miata

    Nothing wrong with buying in winter - I bought mine around Thanksgiving. I considered letting it sit more to get a better deal but that's a gamble I was not willing to take.

    [–] What’s not coming back? The_Original_Miser 3 points ago in AskReddit

    You and me both.

    I'd love to know more about my genetics and perhaps relatives, however once I lose custody of that data, you don't know what is done with it, or what companies may use it against you (think: insurance companies)

    I will never willingly participate in that.

    [–] Gov. DeWine Says Legalizing Marijuana for All Ohio Adults Would Be a Mistake The_Original_Miser 18 points ago in Ohio

    Fuck DeWine.

    Get a non handout bill on the books for legalization that the other side would have to bankrupt themselves to lobby against (i.e. run reefer madness style attack ads) and it will pass by a landslide.

    [–] Ending gun violence The_Original_Miser 3 points ago in progun

    I've said this elsewhere but it's not about ending gun violence. It's about control.

    An unarmed populace cannot easily revolt or fight against tyranny

    They don't address the real problems such as poverty, fixing healthcare, and fixing the myriad of reasons why people resort to violence.

    Guns are the scapegoat for their agenda. If violence is mostly eliminated, they lose the boogeyman that paints guns as the only cause.
