Supercharged Xterra

Walked by one this morning while walking the dog. Didn't realize they made a supercharged version between 2002 and 2004.

It bumped the horsepower from 180 to 210.

Recommendations for tire pressure gauge

Any suggestions? I've always used pencil-shaped gauges. I'm ready to move up. Thanks in advance.

Electric fan cripples Florida governor debate

This is just pathetic and emblematic of American politics. Both candidates are immature dicks. The Democrat (the guy with the fan) used to be the Republican governor and got engaged to a woman just to quash rumors that he is gay.

The Republican (the guy who was mad at the fan) is the incumbent. Before his political life, he ran the largest for-profit health care company in America which paid a $600 million fine for defrauding Medicare.

Buick or Taurus?

The current Buick ad campaign in America wants to convey to prospective buyers that new Buicks are modern looking!

Taking off ebola containment suit

It seems like the protocol is lacking and the "suit" is less-than-ideal in design.

Toyota Isis

I had no idea these existed until I saw it on Hooniverse today. Plus, no B-pillars!

Kobani ISIS combat video

Don't worry, there is no blood and gore in this video.

Do you get the sense that these guys think this is just one big elaborate paintball game?

1987 compact truck track racing

The diversity of the trucks! Isuzu, Jeep, Nissan, Mitsubishi, Toyota, Ford,.... Top speed of 150, with an average of 80 around the lap. Incredible.

2004 anti-Howard Dean Iowa ad

Just imagine the size of our deficit if we had that supposed $1,900 tax hike. But then again, I drive a Volvo and read the New York Times.
