5,000# Quickjack for $1,100 at Costco

Saw this on Slickdeals, seems to have great reviews around the web and a great price.

Contributing to the literacy of minors Contributing to the literacy of minors

From my daughter’s learn-to-read book last night. They’re generally excellent books with a focus on short, phonics-based words:

OCDyssey, Part 2: Random door frames and rain channels OCDyssey, Part 2: Random door frames and rain channels

In my continuing quest to document our fourth-gen Odyssey’s dozens of strange design flaws quirks as they annoy me in real time, today featured some rain. Lots of it. Time to examine some doors!

Revenge is a dish best served cold Revenge is a dish best served cold

I’m 40 years old today and have resolved to IDGAF All The Things.

GMG just keeps jumping the shark... GMG just keeps jumping the shark...

Keep up the great work, ladies of Jezebel. I’m sure if you keep talking about the genitals of a sitting president, you’ll eventually achieve the journalistic credibility of Buzzfeed or maybe even TMZ. #bigdreams #youtoo

"Did you buy your Explorer before or after your local PD secured their fleet purchase contract?"

I’ve been known to muster up some indignation, frustration, and anger at some random stuff, but this is pretty misplaced when every tenth car on the road is an Explorer. With some minor tweaks, it could work for The Onion, though.

There’s something I always love about seeing cars like this in the TJ Maxx parking lot (I also saw my third-ever BMW i3, plus two 63-series AMG SUVs there).

Yo, Colin, I'ma let you finish

But the Heaven’s Gate cult gave Nike a lot more publicity than you. And for free!

Maserakachu, I choose you! Maserakachu, I choose you!

At a local Euro get together on Saturday, my son quickly declared this “his Pikachu car.”

Glider breaks 62,000 feet, sets new altitude record

This is one of Steve Fossett’s many pet projects. Keep in mind that the powered aircraft record is only 80,000' and this thing is dependent on some really thin air blowing upward from the Andes to achieve this — the tow plane only takes it to 44,000' and the updrafts do the rest. They’re aiming for 90,000' if the…

The four on top had absolutely no protection from the elements, rocks, bird crap, etc. Not even those basic white adhesives over the hoods or roofs.

OCDyssey, part 1: Exterior A-pillar trim OCDyssey, part 1: Exterior A-pillar trim

First-run effort from a spunky Chinese startup? Controversial haste from an enigmatic electric carmaker?

A little bit of road rage schadenfreude

This is just a horrible story all around. But at least there’s some poetic justice if you’re into that sort of thing.

The van earns its keep for another day The van earns its keep for another day

Despite being a generally hateful machine, the Odyssey does excel at cargo — in this case a 96”-long couch in the back with the gate closed. 30 minutes from home, so even a truck rental would be a PITA round-trip.

Bucket list?

I have to say, my inner 8-year-old loved this story (except the sad ending). Especially since the president had to get briefed on it.

Netflix recommendations - standup comedy

There is a LOT of crap out there, including stuff from people I normally like (Chris Rock, Bill Burr, Kevin James). But this is some of the best and most creative standup I’ve seen in a while. I really enjoy good anecdotes, puns, and traditional observational standup, and in this first one, Neal Brennan does all three…

Third Day: Soul on Fire Third Day: Soul on Fire

A catchy Christian rock/country tune that has been stuck on my head since today’s FP story.
