Faster than I ever dared in my '94 Miata, which was not known for speed. Perfectly straight state highway, crystal blue skies, no traffic. Ran it up to 108 mph (174 km/h) before the suspension started to feel a little shaky. Still, great fun.
Best fun I ever had in the car was playing chase-the-rabbit with a brand new, high-end Camaro through a twisty country road. By the end of it he was slaloming through both lanes trying to keep up with me, while I was hugging the right lane like it was my long-lost child .
So society has basically burned to the ground since I posted here regularly. One thing I see a lot is older people sure they know 'the truth' based on something they saw on YouTube. Certainly news sources seem a lot more partisan to me than they used to be and it's hard to find unbiased news as opposed to seeking out world events filtered through either side of politics.
So, where do you get your news? Or are you just hiding under a rock waiting for the storm to pass?
I quit watching the news a few years ago. In order to do that I have to be ok with not being up on current events. In my situation I can be, and nobody knows I don't know what's going on. This keeps me at least not fretting about that. I have enough to be concerned with without the cares of the world.
even less watch the news talk/analysis shows because those are all about ratings rather than truth, don't wanna soapbox it but how often have these 'wise' analysts been wrong about the Don, brexit, China... wrong far more often than right even to the point of embellishing untruths? Farking clueless the lot of them. (Line them up next toin front of (save bullets) the movie critics - another waste of skin that lot are.)
