    OK...what would cause a pilot to eject yet the plane was apparently able to continue straight and level for a while on autopilot?...mistake the eject lever for the lumbar support adjustment?

    Airline “seats remaining” site?

    SWA does not play well with other search engines so you have to search through their website...for SWA one hack is to try and book for 8 flights and see if it close to full but don't think they publish capacity anywhere.

    Saw a Tesla semi today

    Love some of the "the technology isn't perfect now so it will never be viable" comments. Ya'll think Starlink is just about brining internet to rural areas?....that is to just beta test the system and work the bugs out. There is a reason Tesla is licensing its EV software to all the other...

    Transporting your firearm

    Don't think the FAA gives a rat's ares nor are there FAR restrictions but you are subject to each state's individual laws that you would pass through/stop at for transporting firearms.

    {n/a} Car Washes ... how do you keep your clean?

    If you are running it through the gas station plastic bristle cheap washes beating the crap outta the finish I would agree but a soft touch drive tough or hand wash regularly on newer cars are not an issue IMO.

    {n/a} Car Washes ... how do you keep your clean?

    When money was flowing it was full service car wash whenever but that was $30 a pop...then would do interior every once in a while and that same car wash has a $12 drive through exterior only with quick wipe down which is great. Now that I am further away from that car wash and have more time a...
