It gives me a brief look into someone’s day and I just think it’s cool to hear what different people like to listen to. I was on a drive with the windows down today and heard so many songs playing at once, it gave me intense La La Land intro vibes and I just really loved it.
I especially love matches you wouldn’t expect, like an older woman listening to rap or a cool looking youngin playing some classical or instrumental music.
I dunno, I think it’s nice and I like to observe and appreciate little bits of people’s everyday lives.
Not everyone is mechanically inclined enough to inspect cars but all major auto part stores (auto zone, advanced auto, o Reilly’s) all offer free scanners for you to borrow. YouTube how to do it and you could save yourself thousands. People who sell cars can be sketchy and are good are hiding previous damage or mechanical problems. Pro Tip: offer to meet at the sellers house/dealer and ask them to not start it because you want to do a “cold start” which is starting the engine right up after it’s been sitting. Lots of mechanical problems can ‘hide’ or ‘disappear’ once the engine is warmed up. Starting it cold gives you a much better idea as to how it’ll work when you bring it home the next day. Best of luck!
Even if they flip their rear view mirror to reduce the brightness, the side view mirrors shine your ultra bright lights directly into their eyes.
Keep an extra amount of distance between you and them to help keep the other drivers safe.
Edit 2: as countless people have pointed out, YSAK: you can adjust the angle of your headlights so you’re not as blinding to the car in front of you!
Edit: glad to see I’m not the only one hating these lights! Thanks for tips, I do a lot of driving at night on one lane highways, so next time I’m definitely going to adjust my side mirrors to shine the light right back in their face
For those with young families who may think about taking a long trip: We have traveled literally hundreds of thousands of miles (killed 2 vans with +200k miles) with a family of 2+kids from car carrier to drinking age. The best piece of advice we found by happenstance on a trip from FL to IL kids aged from toddler to preteen. We've since made it our rules, and it's worked out amazingly.
#1 Always get out of the car to eat.
It started with a stop at a Krystals connected to a gas station. We sat and ate in the "restaurant". We realized coming back out, we were "ready to hit the road" again. That short 20 minute change of scenery completely changed out perspectives. We ended up at a sit down restaurant by dinner after realizing how cathartic it was.
#2 Don't get hung up on how quickly you can get somewhere.
I have made the FL to IL trip more times than I can count. This time we decided, "You know, it's only a few more hours if we go via NC and OH. We've never been to those states... keep reading on reddit ➡
I have an old car that I bought for 2000 dollars when I was 16. I'm 26 now. In the time I've had it, I've learned a lot about car maintenance, I fix it up with junkyard parts and it's pretty cheap to keep running. It's dented and rusty as all hell but it goes and it's cheap.
So anyway, my neighbor parks in his driveway and I park on the street. And he's gotten mad at me for parking in the street because he finds it harder to navigate his big truck around my car. I asked him if he wants me to move my car ahead a bit or behind a bit on the street, because I'm happy to, but I have to park somewhere on the street because I don't have a driveway or garage space.
He didn't like that, he doesn't want me parking on the street at all. But I'm not about to park on a whole different street then I live at.
Anyway, this week I was sitting on my fire escape reading a book and I saw my neighbor drive out his driveway right into my car's side. I grabbed my phone and started filming asap.

'Didn't you say to the police at the scene of the accident, 'I'm fine?' asked the solicitor. Paddy responded: 'Well, I'll tell you what happened. I'd just loaded my fav'rit cow, Bessie, into da... '
'I didn't ask for any details', the solicitor interrupted. 'Just answer the question. Did you not say, at the scene of the accident, 'I'm fine!'?'
Paddy said, 'Well, I'd just got Bessie into da trailer and I was drivin' down da road.... '
The solicitor interrupted again and said,'Your Honour, I am trying to establish the fact that, at the scene of the accident, this man told the police on the scene that he was fine. Now several weeks after the accident, he is trying to sue my client. I believe he is a fraud. Please tell him to simply answer the question. '
By this time, the Judge was fairly interested in Paddy's answer and said to the solicitor: 'I'd like to hear what he has to say about his favourite cow, Bessie'.
Paddy thanked the Judge and proceeded.'Well as I was saying,... keep reading on reddit ➡
So I found out he was cheating on me with an underaged girl.
Yesterday morning after confronted him and asked flat out if he cheated on me. He admitted that he had receive a blowjob from another woman. He said he blocked her on everything, but she kept creating instagram accounts to contact him. I asked why he hid this, and he said he was ashamed and was looking for the right time to say something.
Something in my gut told me he still was lying, so I snuck into his room and stole his phone while he showered, he forgot to take my thumbprint out of his phone. I looked at his most recent texts, and a few hours before he had texted an unnamed number, “I told GF I was cheating on her, we might not be able to see each other for a while. If you need me message me on insta”. I have never been so hurt by anything in my... keep reading on reddit ➡

Edit, removing his name for now... he was a good man. If you've watched any streams over the last couple of months, you'd likely recognize him. He marched and participated almost daily, assisting his quadrapelegic, wheelchair bound wife in the marches. I'm sure there will be lots of ways to support this family posted over the next few weeks, please help if you can, he was her main caregiver.

Sorry for my bad english. Also I’m typing on mobile, if im make any spelling mistakes im sorry.
So i was browsing reddit. i did my daily deed by creating my 420th account to downvote EA’s comment about microtransactions (EPIC). and then i saw a hilarious meme about dying in a car crash on r/dankmemes. i decided to try it out. So me, being the typical redditor decided to take my wife and children with me (SPOILER, THIS WAS A MISTAKE). Not with standing, we were in the car and saw a big truck. Now i’m a fan of big trucks, let me tell you, but the driver was clearly an insta normie. We crashed into the truck going 250 mph. My wife was vaporised immediately. The car flipped 69 times (nice). Cum, everywhere. My cock and balls, tortured. My reddit gold, gone. r/wooosh. now you might have noticed the truck driver has uploaded this accident on r/watchpeopledie after committing 4 counts of vehicular manslaughter. This guy is a repeat offender when it comes to reposting. I could name several i... keep reading on reddit ➡
I recently bought a used 2017 Subaru Forester. I love it so far and has all the bells and whistles. It’s my first car purchase and I held out for as long as I could (I’m 29 in a couple days). I put 7500 down on a car that was about 24k. The dealer kept making a big deal about it and asking if I was married to the “huge” down payment and why I wanted to put so much down. Then I was talking with friends and they were shocked as well and now I’m starting to question that decision. My whole reasoning was I wanted a decent car but didn’t want a huge monthly payment or to pay a ton in interest. What are the potential cons from my decision?
Edit - the loan/interest rate was 3.29% over 48 months
