If I get coins for some reason I keep them in my wallet and then use them at the self checkout the next time I buy groceries.

My coworker's android phone simply turned off when it got too hot.

I actually like pumpkin spice coffee. However, the Starbucks version isn't very good. Also, it's full of ingredients that would make any health-conscious person squirm. Green Mountain Coffee has some bagged pumpkin spice coffee for drip brewing, and there are recipes out there for homemade pumpkin spice lattes. No matter what, just remember that what's most important is that nobody wants to see a picture of your coffee.

And no, there was not a "volume equalization" option checked anywhere....I searched high and low for anything I could do to remove this horrible "feature" and found nothing. HP's own reps act oblivious to the problem and offer standard-issue help desk responses like, "try restarting the computer" or "try adjusting the EQ levels in the Beats control panel." Nope...

I've now had a personal experience with the Beats brand and it was terrible. I bought a new HP laptop. A lot of people bash on HP but I've had good experiences with their products in the past. However, my old HP laptops were pre-Beats, which they are now touting as their "premium audio." I didn't care about this, figuring it to be a gimmick more than anything; when I listen to music on my laptop I use external speakers or headphones, not the built-in stuff. Well, it turns out that the combination of audio driver and the Beats EQ or whatever added in a horrible auto-volume-leveling feature that causes the volume to jump up and down throughout a song (literally dozens of times in one song). No matter what media player you use, or even YouTube, this occurs because it's actually all audio coming from the computer. After a long time looking up numerous threads on the Internet about this exact problem, I was finally able to disable the driver and install the default Microsoft audio driver that I believe comes preloaded with Windows. This basic driver actually works, AND the Beats control panel is gone. However, this caused me a ton of undue frustration with my brand-new laptop. Thanks, Beats...for nothing.

A couple of years ago I walked into the FedEx depot near my work to pick up a package. I was waiting in line when a woman walked in behind me and stood directly on the entry mat near the automatic doors. The doors proceeded to open and shut over and over again, about 25 times before the line finally moved. The lady never budged and seemed completely oblivious to the doors opening right behind her.

Oh for sure. I just find it amusing to put in words the behavior of game characters. One of my favorite "game logic" posts is the Assassin's Creed one: "Excuse me, heavily armed man in a white hood, have you seen a heavily armed man in a white hood anywhere nearby? He looked exactly like you, but he wasn't sitting on THIS bench."

It was actually in the Old Testament before "Christians" even existed. Those specific and often-cited laws were written for the Jewish people and were nullified by Jesus in the New Testament. So yeah, any modern day Christian should not be saying ridiculous things like that. Even if it was still a forbidden thing, the Bible teaches that God forgives.

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.
