I have less than half a tank, and I haven't refilled in about a month.

 

Doesn't gas go bad after a month or so?  Should I just use it up somehow?

 

I don't think so.

 

However, your battery will run out of juice if you don't run your car every so often, that is the bigger concern. :p

Gas will go bad between 6 to 12 months. But just refill to mix it up every so often.

 

Don't listen to him. He owns stock in Texaco!

He's probably the same guy who designs the suction tubes too short to get the bottom 20% in beauty product pump bottles.

Gas in Detroit is under $1/gallon. Last time I saw prices like this I was 9 years old.

 

You can afford to drive American luxury now:

I think I saw gas at $1.54 yesterday morning. I filled up over a week ago for $1.75. I’m pretty much jut driving to work and that’s it. Making my husband drive his car to get groceries, otherwise, it’d never get any use.

As @CitizenVectron said it takes closer to a year. In my experience it’s a much bigger issue on carbureted engines (the fuel in the carburetor likes to gum up). There‘a a product in Canada (I assume it exists in the USA as well) called sea foam that is good for keeping fuel from going bad but I wouldn’t worry about it unless you’re planning on parking your car for months (or if your car is 30+ years old and isn’t fuel injected). I’ve had a bunch of carbureted equipment get gummed up with old fuel when I forgot to use sea foam but I’ve never had a fuel injected engine have the fuel go bad (although I’m sure it can happen given enough time).

Gasoline is good for like a year or longer if you keep the tank full, its when theres more air in the tank than fuel when it starts to be an issue.

I don't get it.

So it's a series of videos of people doing stupid shit that would probably result in them dying, then a smash cut to a funeral.

 

The jobless claim one is that the economy is what died. :p

Wouldn't you like to hear Dan Deardorf explain why the nails have to go in at a certain angle?

 

I think Back in Town is Carlin's best comedy special, and one of the best ever.

 

25 years old, and it's striking how relavant it still is at points. It's the one that has the bit about Baby Boomers. And no coincidence that he frames his idea of public crucifixions as part of Monday Night Football. Riffing on the shallowness of our culture....and lookit that. Just today we have the governor of a state appealing to people to follow social distancing for the good of the country and the very lives of vunerable populations so it won't disrupt Football season too much :flag:

Quote

MAVERICKS OWNER MARK CUBAN HAS NO TIMETABLE FOR NBA RETURN BUT CONCEDES ‘AMERICA NEEDS SPORTS’

“I Would Have Set Up Overdraft Protections For Every Single Business,” Cuban Advised Host Jesse Watters. “The Method We’re Doing It Now, And Attempting To Have All People Apply For A Mortgage, That Simply Provides Friction To The Method.

“And The Same With The $1,200 Stimulus Checks,” Cuban Continued. “It’s Not That It Is A Dangerous Program. It’s A Great Program At The Moment. But If I’d Have Finished Slightly Bit Completely Different. So Successfully, In Case You Have A Small- Or Medium-Sized Enterprise, We’d Simply Cowl All Of Your Checks After Which The Fed Would Reimburse Your Native Financial Institution For Something That You Simply Bounce.

“That Way, You Could Keep All Your Employees Employed, Pay All Your Bills, Pay Your Mortgage, Pay Your Rent And Utilities, And Things Can Continue, Somewhat At Least, As Normal,” Cuban Mentioned.

Watters Requested Cuban What Points Of U.S. Life He Expects To See Altered On Account Of The Pandemic.

“Everything,” Cuban Mentioned.

“When We Get To The Other Side, You Know, I’ve Been Calling It America 2.0. We’re Going To See What’s In Front Of Us,” Cuban Mentioned. “We Actually Do Not Know What To Anticipate, What’s On The Opposite Facet. But What I Do Know Is That In This Nation, All Of The Entrepreneurs That You Simply Referred To, All Of The Capitalists That Exist Right Here … There Isn’t Any Higher Nation.

Other than gay marriage and legalized pot in some states, not much socially has changed since 1996. In some areas we’ve actually regressed.

I think it might be top 5 for Carlin.

 

His last one was everything that made him great and a fantastic sendoff. Complaints and Grievances is a laugh riot and his last "high energy" one. Back in NY was Carlin on fire. 

 

It'd be number 4 for me.

Honestly, what good is Free Market Capitalism at this point? It has made half of us into minimum wage earners. It has decentralized and offshored our manufacturing capacity. It has been slowly wittling away at the middle class for the last 30 years. It blew up the global financial system in 2008 and cost normal folks 5+ years in lost earning potential. One single company built and then destroyed the city of Flint, and three companies did it to Detroit. Wealth inequality is worse than it was 100 years ago. Good higher education is literally unattainable for the majority. Now we have this virus and tens of millions have lost their jobs and health insurance.

Oh but we all have shiny phones and Netflix so it’s all good who cares

What country, past or present, has created a level playing field that was also wealthy?  Although Yugoslavia and the GDR were pretty wealthy compared to their contemporary socialist counterparts, they paled in comparison to almost every European and North American free market system.  Just look at the economic disparity between East and West Germany during the cold war.  

 

I know you probably weren't talking specifically about communism or whatever, but that's all we really have to compare free market capitalism against.
