Belinda Stronach is Allegedly a Dirty Whore 
Homewrecker.

Homewrecker who was elected as a Conservative representative to govern. I sure hope her constituants think twice before casting their votes next time.

Of course, when her daddy is the boss, it's a tough call voting your conscience. Assuming those people have a conscience.

Asked bluntly about her sex life, Stronach responded: "Let's face it. I don't sit at home and knit on Friday nights."


Dirty, dirty, whore.

Car Salespeople Are Lying To Me 
When shopping for a limited production car, apparently the number of cars being made for Canada is entirely dependant on how much pressure the salesperson feels they need to apply to get you to decide you can afford something you can't afford.

I think when I actually have the money to buy a car, I'm just going to keep talking to salespeople until I find one that I think might be talking straight to me. I'm getting pretty sick of being openly lied to.

On a related note, should a salesperson really be offended when you make it clear that you know more about the car you're talking about than they do?

"Hey... this is an option on that car over there. Do you know if it's dealer installed or whether the car has to be ordered with it?"

"No, that's not an option."

"Yes it is. I know it is."

"No, I don't think it is."

"Listen... I think I know more about these cars than you do... is there maybe someone else you can check with to find out for me?"

"I'm sorry... I'm new here... "

Then they still didn't try to answer my question.

Isn't it their job to know more? Shouldn't they at least make an attempt to find out what you're asking rather than just making stuff up?

I'd much rather have them say "I don't know, but I'll go find out for you" than just start making up crap. Idiots.

Finally... here's my car-buying advice for today: Don't go shopping for a car when you don't plan to buy one for half a year or so. It just gets you all worked up over nothing. :)

Get Well Soon, Hamster. 


Today I just want to send a most sincere "Get well soon" to Richard Hammond of the BBC's Top Gear program.

It's one of my favourite shows, even though I can only watch downloaded versions of it, and I just can't imagine the show without him.

On Wednesday, Hammond crashed a jet-powered drag car doing around 300 mph and has reportedly suffered "significant brain injury". Doctors are now saying that he's progressing well and have upgraded his condition to "stable" from "serious but stable".

I'm sure that all automotive enthusiasts are with me in wishing him well and look forward to him being back on the air as his usual comical self.

Features for Rich People 
My wife and I will be buying a car in the next year.

I want adaptive cruise control.

It's a cool feature and I should be able to have it. How often have to followed someone on a long trip where they are able to set their cruise but you have to continually adjust yours because you can never get it exactly the same.

This feature resolves that. The person in front sets their cruise and everyone else just uses radar to maintain a set distance from the car in front of them.

The problem is that only rich people can have this. The Wiki page on the topic lists a bunch of cars that have it and I can't afford any of them.

Stupid rich folk feature!

I'll bet a year after I buy something, every new car coming to market is going to have this.

Y'all can refer back to this when the 08 models hit the showrooms and laugh at me.

Incidentally... maybe it's just about time to buy a wagon. No adaptive cruise control... but I probably won't miss it in that thing.

That's the sort of thing you want to log in your brain for future reference.
