I have a Samsung Galaxy MEGA. it is a HUGE phone, I think the second largest available right now. I like the MEGA not only for its HUGE screen but also because I can swap out the battery if I have to, a lot of phones now do not have that option. I had an LG Optimus G previously, it was a quad core w...

I'm a good driver and feel very comfortable and coordinated while driving. My main issue is that I get overwhelmed by headlights at night, especially when the road is a bit wet, so the light reflects off of it. I end up with this crazy anxiety where I'm almost panicking and feel like I'm going to s...

TL;DR: I like to drive. The last few weeks I have been sort of commuting an hour each way in the process of moving and downsizing. The drive has been done in a 3500 series turbo diesel chevy van with new studded winter tires. The anxiety I experience is intense. Driving into a city of a million dumb...

Post codes, email addresses, telephone numbers.... I give those of the store's competitors in most cases. I give the number and postal code of the local police depot. I sometimes wonder just how much junkmail and unsolicited phones calls they deal with. I also sometimes wonder how many people do th...

I have one friend and a husband. I have tried to be a good friend to people. I fail hard. Mostly due to my inability to split my attention. Hyperfocus has killed so many of my friendships. I have tried being friends with NT people but I don't understand the need to play weird social mind games as a ...

"powershifting is full throttle (read no lifting), slight clutch and banging gears. as long as you dont miss, bang away." Ouch. I mean for modern day sports cars that is okay, they have multi-clutch systems that use computers to control the shifts. But for regular 4cylinder Civic's, WRX's, Focii and...

You must have a different definition of power shifting. What I have always heard referred to as power shifting is to keep the gas pedal down while doing a very fast shift using the clutch. And that is hard on clutches -- they will wear out much quicker. No sadly, that is not powershifting, that is ...

I drive a car with a stick shift every day for 8 1/2 years now even through bumper-to-bumper traffic. Can anyone here drive a car with a stick shift? If you really want fun, drive a truck with a stick shift and with a non-synchronized transmission. You have to double clutch every gear change. Befor...
