    People with Children

    Two kids, 1 and 4 and an amazing wife that actually supports my hobby. I find it funny how you spend 3k on car mods and people lose their shit, spend that on a set of golf clubs and no one bats an eye. Everyone has a different hobby. I work it into my budget, just like anyone else with a hobby.

    Walking dead !

    Best episode in a long time imo. That whole Lizzie/Mika situation traumitized me, I almost cried. Wonder how long Carol can hold on before snapping, she's been through hell a couple of times now.

    Mk7 on Canada Website

    Meh, free healthcare is like free tacos, you get what you pay for... Pricing comparison is in my post. Base on the 4 door is higher by about 2800 than base on the mk6, but I'm guessing the sport package (roof/18s) is standard now as it's no longer listed as an option package. For the 2 door...

    Mk7 on Canada Website

    The base 2 door is actually about $2000 cheaper than the mk6, with a loaded 4 door about the same price. When I priced it out it was within a few hundred of my car with same equipment. The 42k is including all fees and taxes. The mk6 R was closer to 46k all in. We pay more for cars here yes, but...

    Explain your User Name.

    My first 4 attempts at usernames were apparently already taken, couldn't bother to keep trying so used my first name and car. Afterwards thought of using my xbox live username but not sure how to/if I can change it.

    OFFICIAL---or not I had a dumb fight with my spouse and still don't know WTF happened

    lol...wife wrecks car, yells at you for it then storms off. I think every married guy has had a similar experience at some point. If you've made up already just let it go, man. She's a woman and we as men will never ever understand. Don't try, just smile and nod, hopefully she doesn't bring it...

    The official Hate thread.

    Good on you for not reacting and giving him what he deserved...that would have made you as much a piece of shit as he is. He's obviously trying to make himself feel better about his own pathetic existence by pointing out (real or imagined) shortcomings in others, let him have his moment...

    When it rains, it pours

    Looks like the cop checked off no court, then scratched it off (compared to his other check marks) and wrote court appearance set by clerk. I question the validity of that ticket though, seems confusing the way he has it written up like that. Either way that's a big ticket, I would fight it...
