There's nothing like being told you prefer natural selection over divine purpose, when natural selection consists of shit like this. Although on a positive note, if this 'evolution is a belief' nonsense continues, the news will continue to be entertaining and there will be fewer people pissing in the gene pool.

What kills me is these commercials for the campaign, about hard working Americans, & the unemployment rate & blah blah blah.

This is a perfect example of how Americans are unemployable.

Mechanics at Best Chevrolet in Easley South Carolina are caught on audio burning up the clutch in this mans 2010 Chevrolet Camaro SS. Then at the end of the audio they suggest billing him for the clutch & getting warranty parts from GM.

Yay!!! I finally get to post a yokel of my own. This was on the BBC News website, and was blamed on 'human error'.

Mechanics are shady fucks. And lucky me, I get to waste $500.00 on one this weekend.

I totally was on Livingston Ave today (ghetto) and passed the high school, and not 10 mins later I hear on the radio that a teen was shot right there in a fight. O__o I probably drove past it close to when it happened. Omg.

See, to me, that's a function of a clueless dealership owner rather than asshole mechanics. Mechanics are shady mofos and finding an honest one is like get one of them Wonka Golden Tickets. In other words, you expect assholism from mechanics. That said, when the owner of the dealership first heard of it, he should have offered right there on the spot to repair the car free of charge and certify the repair. The bad press and P.R. for his dealership will now linger forever on Google. That story, no matter how it concluded, will always be out there. It's like a permanent stain.

I had the satisfying experience of running into just such an asshole garage owner a couple of months back after an episode where I'd taken my Jeep to them to fix what was likely nothing more than a clogged fuel filter and the assholes call me back saying they needed to replace the entire fuel pump and so on and it would cost upwards of $800 to do it. I got that message, hopped online and saw that fuel pumps for my Jeep ran MAYBE $70 and perhaps up to maybe 2.5 hours to do, total. In other words, maybe $250 going fat. Short story was I called them back, told them not just "no" but "you're fucking insane, no, put it back together and I'll have it towed somewhere else" and then literally had to threaten the manager with a call to the sheriff to get them to do so because he wouldn't stop with the scare stories/pleading to let me have them repair it. Next guy fixes the whole thing for $180 total but tells me that he had to fish out a bunch of red silicone someone had squirted around the fuel pump seal that had liberally dripped into the tank (silicone and gasoline don't go together and is like an Automotive 101 Don't Do). They did that because of the 4 screws that held the pump in place, they used but one when they put it back together.

Anyhow, I run into the chuckling assclown at the Chick Fil A a few months back (his garage is next door) as I'm getting out of my Jeep. He follows me in to the restaurant and asks in a really sarcastic tone how badly did the repair go with the other guy I sent it to and he'd be glad to have a look at it. To say that I relayed my version of the repair to him in a slightly higher tone of voice and that I've subsequently told probably 30 people to avoid his rip-off garage like genital warts would be an understatement. Right there in the crowded restaurant in front of dozens of folks and ended it with "and more than 1 of them told me they already knew you guys were crooked bastards and suggested I report your business practices to the Better Business Bureau".

Good on the guy he got his car situation straightened out. Bad on the dealership owner who didn't act immediately to snuff the fracas as word of mouth counts for way more than any hundreds of TV and radio commercials ever will.

Holy shiat! Nice uppercut. How that wasn't a standing 8 count I have no idea.

I think her head got popped so far back on that, that for a moment there, she was staring at her own asscrack.

And yeah, I didn't see what she did but she escalated the confrontation from verbal to physical and well, if you're not prepared to absorb the physical coming back, maybe you might think twice about starting crap like that. For some unknown reason, some women believe that they can do anything like that and the man's just supposed to take it.

For some guys, that answer is: wrong.

She definitely initiated it - she hit him while he was driving a buss full of people. Then the threatening remarks she made after she got Shoryuken! (Street Fighter - Ken uppercut) doesn't really help her case much either.

In B4 "I'd hit that" becomes inappropriate.

You can tell that's totally staged by the way they're district workers but there are TWO of them shoveling (when in reality there'd be just the one) and there are NO 17 other dudes, standing around, leaning on shovels watching the one dude dig.
