Obviously a state-by-state issue, but many states I know of it's the opposite of what you're thinking: you can't collect unemployment if you quit, but can if you're fired. That's why companies prefer to dick around with a worker's hours and shifts (if variable hours/shifts are industry-norm) in order to try and… » 1/23/15 5:51pm Friday 5:51pm

"Not Recommended". I don't have an actual source, but my Dart with the exact same powertrain setup doesn't recommend towing with the 1.4T (its 2.4L gets a 1000 lb rating). Honestly, you wouldn't want the 1.4T for towing, either; you'd have to slip the clutch a fair bit to get a trailer moving, doubly so with a hill,… » 1/23/15 3:25pm Friday 3:25pm

Forza used to be that way. Not as intense as GT, but you had to work up, and some cars were locked until you reached a certain level. They changed that around some time ago (3, I think?) because they received tons of complaints that the cars people were buying the game for were level-locked, so they opened it up and… » 1/12/15 9:23pm 1/12/15 9:23pm

The article:

"It's not a simple plastic slab, of course — it's a semi-transparent panel that has a pattern carved into its rear surface that looks like frozen crystal math. Fractals and algorithms rendered as waves, with depth and reactive to light and dimensional. It's all on the back of the panel, leaving the front… » 1/12/15 11:45am 1/12/15 11:45am

You should see Philadelphia. I went out there last year after a small snowfall of maybe an inch and got stuck in traffic for hours due to a ton of accidents on perfectly flat ground with enough traction. I stopped complaining about Pittsburgh drivers for that whole winter. » 1/09/15 12:07pm 1/09/15 12:07pm

I wouldn't be surprised if that's what they actually display in the film. The Godzilla trailers showed the MUTOs on TVs behind Admiral Stenz even as the rest of the trailer tried to downplay other monsters being in the film with modified CG (like Godzilla roaring as the shelter doors close). » 1/07/15 6:26pm 1/07/15 6:26pm

I'm susprised you can't. My Dart came hill start, but it is possible to turn it off with one of those 'key in ACC, press this pedal so many times while wheel is full left' type of maneuvers, and once switched off it stays off until you reenable it. Good for those people who want it off and fine for people like me who… » 1/07/15 12:29pm 1/07/15 12:29pm

I just want to clear up some science here. Consumers spilling hydrogen gas would not significantly contribute to global warming, as hydrogen escapes the Earth's atmosphere at the rate of about 3 kg/s. (Industrial accidents have a higher significance, but lower occurrence. End result is a wash.) The real contribution… » 1/05/15 5:24pm 1/05/15 5:24pm

This is the first time I've seen the Caravan or T&C referenced positively. Most of the time people are ripping on them as the worst of the minivans, and I don't know why. The newer T&Cs are perfectly fine, from my driving impressions. » 1/05/15 11:15am 1/05/15 11:15am
