I'd say the exception to the rule is Fallout New Vegas. The LAPD Riot Gear from the Lonesome Road DLC looks epic and has great stats. It's not quite as good as power armor, but it's lighter.

I currently live in Oregon, which has been traditionally gun friendly, but even so some of our congressmen are constantly trying to push bills through that will greatly restrict this (most of the bills don't do anything to address crime and instead just complicate things for existing gun owners). Our neighbor Washington, where I grew up, just passed a gun bill whose political TV ads contained blatant lies claiming that "criminals can buy guns online without a background check," which is completely false. TECHNICALLY you can "buy" a gun online without a background check, but the gun can only be shipped to an FFL who will promptly run a background check before allowing you to take delivery of said gun. Many online gun retailers have a no return policy especially if you knowingly purchase a weapon that you cannot legally own (if you are a felon, for example), so these criminals are just basically buying new stock for their local gun shop and nothing more. The ad scared enough uninformed people that the bill passed, though.

"No one" appreciates good music? This is a foolish statement. I assure you that you are not the only person on the earth to like music other than what's played on the Top 40 stations.

As I said in my comment, when I see an album cover (be it in poster format or not), I typically recognize it as an album cover. Now, some album covers are unique and have no words on them. In that case, I might think it to be abstract art of some kind...but this one pretty clearly says "Nirvana/Nevermind" on it. However, some people, like her, just don't use that kind of logic.

I never bring a gun to work because it's against policy. Also, I almost always take my jacket off after arriving at work, which would make my concealed weapon no longer concealed. Besides, I work in a secure building, so the risk of an incident is very low and a gun is simply not necessary (unless a coworker snaps and goes on a shooting spree, which again is unlikely). I do, however, carry when I'm traveling, especially to unfamiliar areas. As for Americans in general, many are staunchly opposed to guns, many have a similar situation to me, and many live in states with strict gun laws (like California).

I never got anything for my baby teeth. Also, some of them were being stubborn about coming loose so the dentist actually removed 7 of them in one visit.

I'm not a Nirvana fan and that album cover has always disturbed me, although I recognize it. However, Kurt Cobain and I grew up within 20 miles of each other, and I don't blame him for killing himself after living there.

That's a dumb line of reason. If I see an album cover from a band I've never heard of, I will think, "that's an album cover. Never heard of that band though," not, "THAT IS A STRANGE PICTURE WITH WORDS ON IT AND I DON'T UNDERSTAND WHAT IS GOING ON"

One time I was driving back to Oregon from LA. In Northern California there is a section of I5 that is very long and straight and approaches the Klamath-Siskiyou mountain ranges which rise dramatically out of the plain. I had been in CA for a week and was eager to get home after being on the road for a long time. Consequently, I, and numerous others, were exceeding the speed limit. I finally blazed past a white Dodge Charger in the median and realized, a bit late, that it was a cop. I nervously checked my mirror and, right about the time I could barely see him anymore, thought I possibly saw him pull out. Next thing I know this white missile is streaking up behind me. A sinking feeling hit me as I could tell this was clearly the cop on a mission to apprehend someone. I decided my best choice was to move over to the right lane, since I would have to anyway if he was pulling me over, and also to get out of his way. He proceeded to race right past me, wedge himself in behind a minivan, flip his lights on, and pull them over. I have never been so relieved.

Of course I went down there on vacation the following year and DID get pulled over and issued a $350 ticket, so, I guess I got what was coming to me after all. Also, I mind my speed a bit more now.

I like the ones that ACTUALLY try to have a plot. They are usually like 2-3 hours long...who is honestly going to either 1) jack off for 2-3 hours or 2) watch the porn movie like it's a regular movie?

Hey there, just dropping a line to a fellow car enthusiast! Is your username your favorite?
924Carrera +1 karmaSeptember 2013
Hi! My username is kind of interesting. Years ago as a young teen I was infatuated with classic Porsches and I found the uniqueness and rarity of the Carrera GT/GTS variants of the 924 to be especially desirable traits. I also like the boxy and angular 80's styling of many European cars. So, I adopted that as my username (sometimes in the longer format of 924_CarreraGTS) on forums and such. Nowadays, I have other preferences (although I still think it's a neat older car), but "924Carrera" has become the "online persona" that I identify with. It also helps that I've never seen anyone else use anything similar, so it's kind of "my thing." Anyway, sorry about the TL;DR, as I'm sure the same basic ideas apply to most people's usernames. These days I am an Audi enthusiast. I am currently building a Stage 3 B5 S4 and plan to get a 2.0T A3 in the near future. I also plan to acquire an 80 Quattro Coupe in the future and restore/convert it to S2 spec. All that being said, I am a car enthusiast in general and I appreciate and respect almost all cars. It saddens me to see the more immature car "fans" bashing on their "rivals" instead of uniting for their common interests. What cars are you most interested in?
Avilator +1 karmaSeptember 2013
I ADORE the Tesla Model S. But that S2 Quattro sounds epic. I do like a fast Audi myself, especially the S8. Something about the sleeper status makes it more epic, like the E63 AMG wagon. I like Jags, too. I personally would like an F-Type V6S. More realistically, when I'm done with my degree I might go for a Focus ST or a BRZ/FRS. Totally different cars, I know, but I like them both. If I were to list every car I like, I would be here for ages!
924Carrera +1 karmaSeptember 2013
Yeah, the "sleeper" aspect is one reason I love my S4. When I'm done with the build, it should have around 450 horsepower, but to the untrained eye looks just like a harmless A4. I've looked into the S8's, but unfortunately they are only available with automatic transmissions. This is pretty typical of large luxury sedans, but still a turn-off for me. What I'm more likely to get as a larger sedan is an E39 M5.
Avilator +1 karmaSeptember 2013
E39 M5? Yes, please! :p
924Carrera +1 karmaSeptember 2013
My friend has a 2003 E39 540i 6-speed M-sport, which is about as close to an M5 as you can get without an S62. It has just about the nicest, best-fitting interior I have ever seen. I have to say I don't care much for the BMW's built after that point, partly because I am big on DIY work and they have made that very difficult, but they are still nice cars. I'll stick with E39/E46.
Avilator +1 karmaSeptember 2013
I'm with you on those being the last BMW's I'd be interested in owning. If I had to go with a modern German, it would have a 3 pointed star.
924Carrera +1 karmaSeptember 2013
It's interesting that you say that, because I actually work for Daimler. We have a pretty good employee lease program for Mercedes-Benz cars. They are definitely sharp-looking and well built. However, for the DIY aspect I mentioned, they are one of the worst in the business - some don't even have dipsticks. The idea is to push people into dealer service only, but this is of course quite costly. Also, most of their US lineup is only available with automatics (which I suspect will continue into the future until manuals completely die out...I'll stick with the older cars). If I were to buy a brand new German vehicle, it would have to be an Audi, hands down. I love what they have done with the styling and the build quality. I would probably choose an S4 or S5 from the current lineup. As I said, I intend to buy an A3 shortly, but I'll probably go with a 2009 or 2010 model (6-speed, of course).
Avilator +1 karmaSeptember 2013
No dipsticks?! Damn. The newer Audis do look really good, but I think the Mercs look better. Also, I'm not bound to the idea of a manual in a daily driver of that caliber. My first car will certainly have one, but some newer cars out there are still compelling even without it. However, a sports car would unquestionably be a manual.
924Carrera +1 karmaSeptember 2013
I can understand that, but it's not true for me personally. I have been commuting in an automatic lately and I absolutely hate it every single day. I was driving the S4, but now that it's torn apart for mods, that option is out, and it will be a little excessive for a DD after it's done. The #1 reason I am buying the A3 is to get back into a manual car for my daily drive. Again, that's just my personal preference, but I strongly believe that a 4 cylinder really needs a manual to be optimized. Anyway, that's my peeve of the day. How do you feel about older hot hatch VW's?
Avilator +1 karmaSeptember 2013
I'm not into older VW's but I will say I'd prefer one of the earlier marks of GTI to the modern one.
924Carrera +1 karmaSeptember 2013
Yeah, I have a 1982 Mk1 Convertible. I'm swapping in a VR6 from a Mk4 Jetta. It should be a pretty fun car. I also plan to get a Corrado one of these days. I love that body shape.
Avilator +1 karmaSeptember 2013
Sounds like you have quite the selection of German hardware there.
924Carrera +1 karmaSeptember 2013
That is indeed the case.
Avilator +1 karmaSeptember 2013
What's your opinion on the new Jaguars?
924Carrera +1 karmaSeptember 2013
I like the XF, but I preferred the previous XJ, which always had a very "stately" yet sporty appearance to me. I have always been ambivalent about the XK, although it does look better than it used to. I don't know much about their reliability these days, but they've always had fairly solid build quality.
Avilator 0 karmaSeptember 2013
I like pretty much all of them. Perhaps I've been influenced by Clarkson's point of view. :p In any case, the exhaust note from the V8 is one of the best on the road, IMO.
924Carrera 0 karmaSeptember 2013
Yeah, V8's in general sound great with a proper exhaust system. I like my twin turbo V6, but I love the sound of the B6 S4 with that 4.2 V8.
Avilator 0 karmaSeptember 2013
And of course, there are some sixes that sound awesome as well.
