By wætherman

Base models aren’t just the cheapest car a company can produce, but they generally are the cheapest car that a company can produce and still compete with other cars in its class, so there are a lot of good standard features. I think it makes sense to buy base if the next model or option package doesn’t offer real value; sure you don’t want steelies, but if they’ve overpriced the aluminum wheels or if you are just going to go with a different set anyway, don’t bother. Aftermarket generally has more options at better prices anyway.

By wætherman

Red lights are the only circumstance in which I support lane splitting. Motorcycles getting rear-ended at lights is a major cause of injuries, and motorcyclists need to be able to move to the head of the pack to avoid this problem. Lane splitting can be done reasonably safely at low speeds or in a traffic jam, but I still don’t do it because it’s only safe if other drivers are paying attention and they’re not motorcycle-haters. And a rider should never assume that about anyone in a car.

I live in a pretty small apartment so having the extra room for shelves to hold laundry, cleaning supplies etc made the trade-off worth it. And honestly I’m never in that much of a rush to have my clothes dried – I like the convenience of a combo. But hey, if you’ve got the room and the need, stacked is the way to go!

By wætherman

My experience has been very positive, but I’m not sure – are you asking about a ventless dryer in general, or the combination washer/dryer? Ventless dryers do take longer, in part because AFAIK they are generally 110v instead of 220v so they’re less powerful. But they don’t take 4-5 hours to dry, more like 2-3 for a full cycle I think. The washer/dryer combo makes it so much easier to do a load than having to wait until the wash is done, transfer it to a dryer, etc. Personally I love it. The downside is that they are more finicky …read more

By wætherman

I don’t understand how Roomba keeps getting all the attention for robot vacuums, when the Neato Robotics is so much better, especially for a truly-automated home. Because the Neato actually has a laser scanner and maps your apartment, it can go from one end to the other cleaning each room, then moving on to the next, and return to its base station for charging after it’s done (or to boost up if you’ve got a big apartment).
