post #96796 of 149724

I wrecked my old car during finals last year, I was really sick that day and vomited like 5x, had terrible diarrhea every 30 mins and head was spinning when i was driving home late at night. I probably shouldn't have been driving. I rear ended someone at 10 mph and it was on an incline so it crushed my engine without touching my bumper or even the other guys paint. Either way, I used to hate driving but using insurance check from totaled car I got a subaru impreza and my best friend got me into cars. Even though at times now I like to drive fast on twisty roads etc, I am a much better (and safer) driver so I think it helps to own a car you don't hate.

Well that's because cars are innately a luxury if we look at the real idea of them.

 

GM, and USA car manu's bought out a lot of large cities light and mass rail systems a few decades ago(public privatized transportion) and dismantled them to get bigger profits with cars.

 

It's ideas like this that really show that for a large part of America's population, that cars are innately a luxury. VAT's, huge gas taxes due to smaller subsidies in other countries, and the increase in prices in other countries are good examples in showing how many things we have 'now' are being taken for granted. 

 

This may sound cliche, but your life or the ding?

 

Older cars didn't crumble as easilly on light collisions or small 'dings' but they are extremely deadly during huge collisions.

 

Modern day cars (and their engines or whatever is dangerous around the driver) are meant to crumble in a specific way that makes it so that that the car becomes a roll cage almost.

Am I strange for starting to have an obsession over the grid system and modern design (well, looking at International Style and Modern Style right now)?

post #96800 of 149724

Yes.

post #96801 of 149724

The only grids I am interested in looking at are the grids of dat *****

Outbreak Company... Parody of the scene in Milky Homes which is a parody of the scene in Nausicaä. Well played.

Either way, a dac is a necessity. The macbook's jack gives off so much static.

It all depends on how you get to Uni and how much room you have there. For me, P-H worked just fine with my setup:

If you're gonna be flying to your Uni, then yeah, don't take P-H. Something like a Leckerton UHA-6S MK2 might be a good idea at that point. But if you're driving to your uni, you should have plenty of room in that big SUV crossover thing! :veryevil:

Suck on this! :D
They even have the option in there to use the Japanese names and voice pack!


Also: Welcome to this mess of a thread :3

 

Ah, yeah. I don't really mind though. At least it's coming to the US, that's what's important. For a while I didn't have much hope that it would.

 

I've posted here before, just not much because I haven't been super into manga/anime recently and have little to no knowledge about headphones and the like. Hard to jump into conversations when you don't know what you're talking about haha.

Hang on, you're from WA as well? :eek: What part of the state do you herald from sir?

They crumple so you don't.

If you don't mind dying in a crash though, you can always get a vintage car like my friend did. No power breaks or power steering, but it can probably run over smart cars without getting much more than a scratch:

Even with my piece of schiit car that handles like any old American car would (like a boat, AKA bad), I still take corners I know probably a bit too fast. :veryevil: Though I don't so much anymore since I haven't gotten around to securing my subwoofer yet, and I don't really want it sliding around tooo much in the back of my trunk...

Finally got around to watching the Steins;Gate film, only to find myself so perturbed by the ****tacular subs that I spent the next several hours combing thru the script and squashing all the terrible grammar and typos in the SRT file. Should make for a much more pleasant second viewing

Haha yea. From CA to NY is probably a long flight...

 

I've been eyeing that small usb Dac thing, that's as small as a regular usb. For $90..it should be ok.

"Town so nice they named it twice"

//although I'm not currently there, I'm currently about ~2 hours from Seattle. Although I wish I wasn't. Picking colleges while undecided is very risky.

 

One of our older cars is pretty nice, although if someone hit this thing it'd be toast basically haha. But it can take corners like nobody's business, these things were made for corners.

You're joking, right?

Walla Walla (well actually College Place) is my home town! I'll be flying back on Friday!

Two of my friends there are into anime and have accounts here as well. There's @Chasenuva1 who you probably just missed for the night and Atominator99, who never comes on anymore...

 

Oh? What school are you going to? I'm going to UW and Atom is going to Western.

Yup, it's safe to say that if you're flying, don't bring large audio equipment. It's just a waste of luggage space.

The only problem I'd have with one of those dragonflys is that it sticks right out of your USB port, and might damage the USB port in the long term.

What the heck does "Bravely Default" stand for? Sounds like something the US government should do regarding its debt or something tongue.gif
