A long time ago, in middle or high school, my friend dragged me to one of the Fast and Furious sequels. (This was an autistic friend I met through social skills group, and I went because it's good social skills to do things you have no interest in doing with other human peoples.) I was lost from like thirty seconds in until the end.

So:

A. What the fuck was going on in that movie I saw?
B. How realistic was it, really?
C. From the perspective of a car person, why would anyone who wasn't dragged there by an autistic friend watch those movies?

Oh man, I love the Fast & The Furious movies. They've gotten more and more out of hand with each movie, but I find them entertaining nonetheless. Except Tokyo Drift, that one is a pile of garbage. But yeah, sweet cars, sweeter jumps, girls, sass, explosions, huge plot holes, and the dumbest plot twists. They're great!

With a devilish twinkle in his eye.
With his hand-picked flowers,
And his feel-good powers,
He made all the girls blush and sigh.

Whaaaaat there's a state that's full service only? Note to self: Do not stop to refuel in New Jersey.

Oregon was like that, too, until fairly recently. Now it seems you can pump your own gas at night if you're in a town of <40,000 people there.

(Presumably, the only way to stop a bad guy with a transgender-friendly privacy law is a good guy with a transgender-friendly privacy law, and thus transgender-friendly privacy law rights need to be enshrined in the Constitution as well)

How much should a pair of gas-struts cost me? For the tailgate. Should I try getting the same brand as the previous one or will any do as long as they can take the weight?

Finally is it possible to fix without replacing?
