Re: More Moo Goo Zombies!

Based on the title ("Gone Girl Star") I was expecting the article to be about Rosamund Pike. I actually had to IMDB Kim Dickens to see who she played in the movie.

I'll be tuning in no matter who's in it.

Re: Selling car to private party

I was the buyer in this situation a couple of years ago. Somewhat unique car, worth some extra hassles. To put that in perspective, I flew halfway across the country (sight unseen) to inspect and buy the car, and drove it home.

Re: 10 of the most expensive TV shows ever made

You say "greedy", I say that both NBC and Warner Bros. (the studio who produced it) were making TONS of money off of the show, in no small part due to the actors in the cast, so they certainly deserved a decent cut.

I would [more]

Re: How is it worth $95K?

Infinity Quattro? I can't think of any Infinity vehicles marketed with Quattro in the name, although they do offer some all wheel drive models. Audi has more or less trademarked the "quattro" name, and you can easily find an Audi model that [more]

Re: Traany Fluid, Power Steering

At the root, they're both hydraulic fluids. ATF may have more additives to protect the transmission, but I imagine they're pretty similar.

Re: Racing Games

Yep. In all honestly, I've only had it for a handful of years. I used to play it at my grandparents' house when I was a kid. My grandfather passed away several years ago, and apparently my uncle hung on to it. When I was visiting a few years ago, my [more]

Re: Which to pay first?

If you are not DEFINITELY sure that you will be able to put $1100/month toward debt reduction, paying Card #2 off now is probably the safer alternative, if your goal is to minimize your interest payments.

I would probably do this, or [more]

Re: Happy (motoring) Days are Here Again

And I was perfectly happy to find premium for $2.98 at Costco this morning. Don't remember what regular was going for, maybe $2.49?

Had to dig my box of cartridges out of the closet - Indy 500 is the one I was thinking of. Blocky, overhead view, but fun as heck...

Re: costco tv sale

If you're not dead set on any specific feature, and want to use Costco (great return policy for TVs), keep an eye out for floor models being sold off. They typically put them on a cart, and mark them down around 40% from normal boxed price. I've [more]

Re: Racing Games

For me, racing games start and end with Gran Turismo. On any generation of Playstation, these were as good as it gets. I know Xbox has made a good push with Forza, but I'm only played the demos.

Although, I do have a soft spot for that old [more]

Yeah, it kinda felt like a filler episode before they storm the hospital in the midseason finale.

I always use OEM replacement strips on my Honda. But, instead of buying them locally, you can get them online for about $8/set. Yeah, then there's shipping, but if you need other [more]

It ain't exactly rocket science. Any photography hobbyist with a little experience, a copy of photoshop, and some free time could do it.

Re: car salesmen

Think of it this way...when you buy or sell a stock, you don't agonize over whether it's up or down 25¢ at the exact moment of the transaction.

Well, much the same, I don't agonize over a few (several?) hundred dollars when buying a [more]

Ooh, I like the idea that she's faking it to infiltrate the hospital.

I thought the episode was a little dull. Much more interested in what's going on with the others.
