Dec 21st 2012 10:39AM If you repeatedly hit me over the head with the hammer, you bet! The hammer becomes the problem.
If you didn't have the hammer my defensive mechanisms would kick in, and I would just kick your ass.
Dec 21st 2012 10:16AM How about we demand gun responsibility be mandatory for all holders of weapons. Btw that would include locking the damn things in a private place or concealed safety cabinet, when your not home. Second, leave the ammo somewhere packed away out of reach and sight; totally away from children. Third. Lets stop marketing these so-called "action games" to kids that promote killing. If I child learns this stuff at an early age they WILL become desensitized to killing.
In psychology, desensitization (also called inurement) is defined as the diminished emotional responsiveness to a negative or aversive stimulus after repeated action. Wake Up Parents this stuff is real!
Oct 18th 2012 9:13AM Yay!! As the once glorious 192 turns to dust...the big greed machine gets bigger! What a wonderful day in Kissimmee history. Disney has no respect for its neighbors. They are out of control.
Dec 6th 2010 11:35AM The Antarctic is melting away??? (Joke!) This fool company goes there with the intent to take away the precious snow and ice for $%&@ beer. They should be shot! PS...I think the Antartica can afford to loan a few bottles for a good cause...damn dumb ass! Hopefully, you're kidding, and not serious.
Oct 18th 2010 9:43PM Saab 9000..Gods gift to the Liberal-Conservative Minded Professional Family Guy-Gal!
Re: Interior Upgrades!
To Jon...The wooden accents can easily be added aftermarket. I had the the 94-9000 and the burl wood was beautiful, and a very expensive Saab aftermarket product. To my knowledge, it was applied at by dealerships post-production. If my memory serves me correctly, the burl wood package I had, included sidedoor panels, handles, dash board and lower radio and center console panels, cost around $1200 from the Saab dealer, which was a hell of alot of money back in 94, and perhaps much moreso in todays economy. The Chinese or American aftermarket products are just as nice, are much less expensive, and a realtively easy install...I think the entire kit online cost about $300 US! So, good economics says; why have Saab import and upcharge the thing to death, when the Chinese can build them and we can install it for much less! Also, the fact that your "still" driving the 91 9000 really says something about Saab! I also loved the 9000... the heated rich leather seating package was impeccable...R&P steering was nice and tight, and they banked curved highway exits like a Porsche. I had the 9000 Turbo which accelerated great, even punched out at high speeds! I also loved how roomy the car was, and how smartly accessible service items where in the engine compartment; like fluid fills, fuse boxes etc. It was almost like, finally, God sent us a really sharp service tech to be involved in the upside engineering of a product-Glory Be! The down side though, I had tranny failures early on, a sad day indeed, when I just barely exceeded the lousy warrantee period by less than 4k miles. But, Saab being so customer friendly, did step up and helped out somewhat, and at least split half the cost with me 50-50. Even though, with further examination their overall service cost was 2X+ the cost of other estimates. But for resale reasons, I thought it smart and stuck with them. Also, as a New Englander-Bostonian, "we" ( and..i do use that word loosely) for the most part, are smart enough to know the basic do's and don'ts when driving in rain or slippery snowstorms. Which leads me to say, I really just hated the EBS (electronic braking system) in the 9000! It freaked me out the first time it kicked in during a snowstorm, I hydroplaned just a little, during the I-95 night rush hour traffic. I was just barely doing, 45-50 mph, when red tail-lights started to appear quickly in front of me. I properly applied the brake pedal, just softly, mind you...touching them slightly. When all of a sudden the damn car took over itself, like a ghost was inside her, or like a "my mother the car" TV espisode for you older folks!... My accelerator wouldn't work and brake pedal just went out, freaking me out, even the steering wheel seemed somehow possessed. I have no understanding what would cause Saab to put this in any car. What a rush..this easily explains my premature gray hair! I really hate that feeling of having NO-control, esp. in snow, and being left feeling so vulerable, in rush hour traffic with red tails in front and bright beams on my rear moving up fast. When panic thinking quickly sets in; like possible total brake failure in third lane traffic and the accelerator starts going crazy, and the car starts taking off all by itself. Wooh! Scares the life out of you when it happens! I took her in for service and was told that was the "beauty" of EBS...I told them I would prefer a tab of LSD, over this, during rush hour traffic, and eventually had the system disconnected; and was comforted by the mechanic, that said, many others did the same. Even so, with all that said; I still loved my classic liberal-lady....The Saab 9000 Turbo!
