I'm down with this. I need a Class 11.So the Gawker network was bought by Univision, minus Gawker.com which will be presumably buried in a shallow grave beside Denton's career (for now, assuming no construction activities in the area).
?Jalopnik! This can only mean improved Baja 1000 coverage.
Best Restaurant was a GEM.
Its not the auto news items that are talked about most, but the little trivia stories and various shit opinions. I'll survive without it though, I can hold my own on various other random automotive stuff I read elsewhere.just read other sources or the headlines of twitter and extrapolate?
HEYYou missed: here is a pic of my creepy stuffed animal and me, an adult woman
Shame the same can't be said about your fellow Jalopnik employees/writers/content creators/whatever they're called this week. Here's what one of your more famous truck/offroader contributors proudly posted at the top of one of his latest articles - a demonstration that he's grossly overloading the truck, he doesn't know how to load his vehicle on the trailer properly, he hasn't got a fucking clue as to what a weight distributing hitch is (let alone actually have one) and he's willing to drive the truck in a horribly unsafe condition.I'M ON THE TOILET, NOT DOWN THE TOILET. KEY DIFFERENCE!
That truck is visibly way, way, way beyond safe hauling and towing limits. Even if he just had all that crap in the back and no trailer, he'd still likely be over the maximum payload rating of the truck, which is 1200lbs including driver, passengers and any gear they bring along.Plus, last week, I bought a bunch of parts from a Jeep hoarder up in northern Michigan: I?ve got an axle, a spare oil pump, a spare fuel pump, a spare transmission and a spare transfer case?all of these will be hanging out in the bed of my support vehicle, a 2017 Ford Raptor.
A full third of the comments on the article point out the exact same thing to one degree or another and he hasn't replied to any of them that I saw - so I don't know how much if any good one more person telling him the same thing is going to be.He's out doing that this week, but that may actually be advice I forward on.
FWIW, if you have a useful word like that that isn't just "I DISAGREE WITH UR TAKE CUZ U DON'T LIKE CAR I LIKE POOPHEAD BUTTFACE [insert way worse here is recipient is female]," we've got emails! Advice on how not to die/get hurt/break down/have a significant oops is generally welcome, and tends to be read and taken seriously when said in a respectful, helpful manner.
You and a few others may be on the toilet, but I would say a majority of your coworkers are down the pipes clogging toilet. Nevermind, the fact that I've since been shadow banned because god-forbid anyone defend what Alfa Romeo has built...Sheesh, this thread can't even get that right. I'M ON THE TOILET, NOT DOWN THE TOILET. KEY DIFFERENCE!
(I wish I had time to troll #gear more. Good place, good people.)
