    I love Honda vehicles but every experience I had at the dealership (sales or service) is just spectacularly bad.

    Well that stinks. That was my beef with my Mazdas too. Great cars. Terrible dealers IME. Maybe I should go back to Cadillac someday. Local dealer treated me like royalty there and was always a superb experience. Even when I'd come rolling in with my battered 90s hooptie. They made it actually worth the premium. Unlike my Volvo dealer which costs even more AND provides terrible service. No lube and not even the common courtesy of a reach around.

    This.

    If your current car runs, and it's not an *emergency* to buy something else, then DON'T! Just hang tight. I'd guess you may be hanging tight for up to a year - but right now is NOT the time to be buying a new car. (Or really, any car at all - since all that demand is also putting unusual pressure on the used market too.)

    There's a ton more detail, but the take home message is; just wait.

    As probably 95% of the population feels this way, it makes my $35-$75 hourly rate fairly easy to earn.
    And I like making something look better or at least different. It's hard on the body though, like yoga for 8+ hours a day.

    Lifespan of phone charging cords is annoying. Seems to average to about two weeks. The better the cord looks, the worse it is.

    Bummer, but my first experience indicates that you both are right on that one. Yeah. It's been about a decade and about a half million miles collectively since I've bought a car. I can definitely play the long game on this one. Not playing dealer games. ESPECIALLY if I'm not getting exactly what I want. Cars are wayyyy too expensive these days at market rates. MSRPs on the econo cars are still decent, but too bad dealers gonna be pricks about it. But slimey is par for the course.

    I've had multiple deals worked out for new 2021 trucks less then MSRP.

    Only reason I didn't sign was after a few test drives they weren't quite what I wanted.

    The assholes with just below MSRP listed on their web page, and then jacking the price to $6k over, is what annoys me. Pricing error on 3rd party web service my ass.....

    I just got really lucky on a new 2021 Corolla commuter for the wife; a mid-level trim package for under msrp of the base model. I was shocked at the discount. Maybe because itís black?

    We just bought a Prius. There was a dealer $2000 special and a manufacturer $2000 discount so we got it $4000 under MSRP.
    Go to cars.com and look for cars you want anywhere, then call the dealer and figure something out.

    At some point, I'll definitely ramp up the search to nationwide. However, once production starts to catch up a bit, it should be a pretty common vehicle. Theoretically at least. I'm juuuuuust starting to look as the vehicle just got released, so I'm in no rush. Told the waifu no way am I paying close to 30K for a freaking Civic. The new model's certainly a respectable vehicle but not 30K good. Not that I can spend any more, but IF I were to spend that much, there's a plethora of used cars I'd rather go with. We need to save more anyway, so whatevs. Dealers can go suck it with their markups. Acting like a Civic is a freaking rare model Vette with these markups. NOPE! Homey don't play that.

    Interesting! I guess Toyota's doing fine with inventory compared to some of the others. Good tip on cars.com. I'll travel to pick my car up if it means I'm not getting blatantly dicked over.

    Dave Chappelle's stand up acts becoming "news" the next day is a a telling sign that mainstream media wants to "cancel" him. You'll see them drag this out into past jokes and target him. The blur of news and entertainment really shakes me up. He quit the industry once before but this time it looks like he is making a stand. Comedy isn't dead.

    I had several friends that got to go to Chappelle's intimate gatherings on his farm in Yellow Springs, OH last year and to a man and woman, of all stripes and persuasions, they said he is an absolute treasure.
    I still call it The Jake.

    I won't attempt to give any opinion on Chappelle's schtick on transgender issues, because I've not listened to any of the material etc. (So, I'm not making ANY judgement, for or against.)

    But what I can say is this;
    Just because you can doesn't mean you should.

    If my parents named me "Greg" - but now I want to be called "Bob" - but you decide that's just too "weird" and unnatural - and still insist on calling me "Greg" - that would, IMO, make you an asshole. It costs you nothing to call me Bob. It's respectful, even if you don't agree with how I came to the conclusion I want to be "Bob."

    I also think people that ignore people's wishes around gender are also assholes.

    Yeah, there's nothing saying you have to respect anyone's wishes about how they'd like you to interact with them. But you're still an asshole if you refuse to be kind.

    If I decide I want to be "Sally" next week - then the kind, and socially adept way to respond is to simply call me "Sally." It might squick you out, it might be against your "religion" (though I have to say a ton of those people haven't actually read or comprehend the book they claim to follow), it might be awkward, or whatever - but it's not being "honest" or "courageous" or "edgy" to refuse to call me Sally. It's just you being an asshole, IMO.

    I just really wish that people would simply think about how they'd (at least most people) treat their mom - and do likewise for their fellow humans. Yeah, she might not be making the most sense on whatever topic - but you can still be kind and gentle, even if you don't get their deal.

    Edited to add:
    Perhaps I should change that wording a bit. Rather than saying they are an asshole - I'll just say that I'm not sure if they're assholes or not - just that they're acting like assholes. And if you don't want to be seen as acting like an asshole or perhaps actually being one, how about acting differently.

    Comedy isn't dead but Chappelle's newest bit isn't innovative commedy either. It comes off as material that he worked out on a home crowd. The whole schtick is saying something he knows to be offensive.

    I loved the other specials but turned this one off about half way through. He neither covers new ground nor had anything memorable from a comedic perspective. Pretty clear he took the money and ran.

    he's not infallible & it should be noted that, as a very good performer, he likely has some ability to take audiences somewhere they maybe didn't necessarily want to end up

    comedians tend to push boundaries
    sometimes good, sometimes not
    one can only hope they keep learning as they go along

    does "canceling" exist? yes
    is criticism always canceling? no

    societies "boundaries" are always changing

    not sure where to land on this one, but it seems some legitimate criticism is buried in there with the always over-the-top media attention

    In American culture as soon as a winner loses they are washed up. Watching European football they kinda act the same way so maybe it is just another awful human behavior.

    We shouldn't expect perfection from performers but people aren't rational thinkers

    news sites continue to erode news

    The Hill has generally been reliable for political news. The opinion pages are full of conservative leaning stuff, but it is usually pretty well ID'ed as opinion.

    This advertising in the style of the news copy & is clearly a new low for The Hill.
