Re: Car recommendations

Why no love for the Mitsubishis?

They have a great warranty & have a lot less troubles than most cars in their class.

IMO, the Evo is a much better car than the WRX.

Re: Considering buying a VW GTI. Am I crazy?

Don't count out the Mitsubishi Lancer. Mitsubishi's are great cars & the Lancers have great little engines in them. Not to mention the 10 year powertrain warranty is great too.

Re: European Paper Wasps - nope!

If you want to kill both of these invaders, just fertilize the crap out of your lawn. It'll kill the grubs & get rid of the wasps at the same time. Just don't throw too much fertilizer on there so that it kills the grass. Use liquid fertilizer if you can. It works faster.

It's all about personal taste. I like to keep my white/silver tequila in the freezer, but the gold & dark stuff stays at room temp. Peppermint schnapps is delicious when it's drank stone cold out of the freezer too. My Scotch/rye/whisky stays at room temp as well. Any of those straight up with i...

Re: Lensanity!

Best find I had was a 85mm prime lens at a pawn shop. No price on it, so I offered the guy $20. He did some searching on his computer for a price but found nothing so he said $40 & it's yours. Cost me $120 to get it cleaned as there was a fingerprint on the inside of the lens. Long story short.....

There's a local mom & pop computer shop near me that sells them. They have a whole shelf full of them actually. They sell the "Heavy Duty" one (500 watts) for only $29.99. These are the places that keep DEER in business.
