    The Power Tools Thread

    First ride on the Stumpjumper. I need more air in the rear shock. Full suspension is cool AF. Dropper posts are sent from heaven itself. Satan still makes the seats.

    The 'I don't like Tesla' Thread

    I don't disagree. The public roads are not the place to test experimental robots. Tesla has a history of playing fast and loose with the law and taking production shortcuts. Their system might be okay on interstates where the traffic flow is simplified and there's no cross traffic...

    Let's have a laugh

    Russia is confirming that the ship sank. Ukraine claims it was a missile strike, but Russia said the ship just decided to fuck itself. If Russia's story is true, the Ukrainian soldier on the radio at Snake Island rolled a natural 20 for Vicious Mockery.
