Comment: Entertained.... (Score 1) 201

Utterly entertained how 90% of the "outraged" comments here about "racist" are all from lilly white armchair activists.

Get off your Asses and into the streets and in the faces of the leaders, all of you just flap lips instead of actually doing something. Where were you when the law was up for a vote?

90% of the doors in the game are fake and you can not get into them. Honestly, all that does it make players think the developers just half assed the game, and in RAGE's instance it is... 2 full DVD's and it has a shorter single player game than most of the War games that are designed to be not single player.

I rock a Panasonic Toughbook laptop and a Panasonic Toughbook tablet.

Toughpad FZ-A1 for my android tablet and a toughbook 31 I carry for work more money in tablet and laptop than most of you have every owned in your car. I work in very dusty and dirty environments programming smartbuildings while they are under construction.

The number of people that whine the ,"OMG why did you buy that expensive thing" I then drop it on it's edge from 4 feet and then ask if their Nexus 7 is "the exact same thing" that they drop their on the edge right now. I own a nexus 7 they break if you look at them funny. I can read the screens better in direct sunlight, consumer tablets are unusable out in the direct sun.

Note: panasonic is a lot cheaper than this botique brand, and the Govt uses them on a regular basis.

It should, you are just not maintaining it 4 oil changes at $50 each = $200 Each year you should do one other service item, This year I had brake fluid flushed at $325 (I'm up to $525) next year is a transmission fluid and filter at $600. Last year I had the AC serviced to the tune of $400 and saved me from having an expensive Compressor failure later on. 2 years from now is time for a tuneup, etc....

And that is my honda civic. Most cars have about $600 in basic maintenance costs. Some need it more like the GM garbage that started to fall apart after 5 years.

Because mile ranges change based on driving.. Grandma can eat up the 100 mile range driving around in town on a 102 degree day without ever going more than 20 miles away from home.

You might like the possibility of having to push the car home, Grandma on the other hand does not.

You are confusing Rich with "ultra rich"

If you are one of the snobbish rich that say you are not rich but you have a nanny for your kids.... Oh sorry, an Au Pair, Nanny sounds so pompish... Then you are rich.

The fact that your income each year can put 10 families into homes and feed them IN THE USA is another good example of you are actually rich.

Yes, $25K a year is enough to put a small very poor family in a crackhouse apartment and feed them.

The first version always gets thrown away.
