Some of my best, and worst, EE profs were Indian.  Just as long as you don't pronounce it "woltage"

Who are we kidding? The brightest minds of the last 10,000 years were Indian.

I had a British professor and he kept saying "Om-eh-ga" and I was confused for a good couple days.

Ramanujan is my favorite mathematician and he is Indian.  I keep forgetting to watch the recent movie about him.

 

To keep this more in line with cars, taking the Merc in for a service.  If I get out for under $3K I will be happy.

The Man Who Knew Eternity.

Dev Patel and Jeremy Irons.

Watched it on a plane last weekend and enjoyed it.

Just in case anyone wanted the reference.

I've managed to capture both sides of lovable and hateable Indian in just a couple of pages on an online forum.

I never had an Indian prof for any class in college. Somewhat surprising now that I think about it.

If my experience with my parents is any indication - they probably didn't even like her.

Ouch.

This was back in the 80s when inter-racial dating was far less common than today. I was also a horngoat and it probably showed.

I should be less cynical. I think it was more being driven and wanting the best for your kids. My parents were literally dirt poor, so they just pushed me and didn't want to be disappointed.

I live in a place I rent from the Chinese GF's parents of my white friend. When the parents visit they're always asking how things are with me on all levels. I take all of that in good faith.

My parents, her parents, and a lot of other people's parents didn't have the things I took for granted. My dad lived in a temple in college just so he had a place to sleep and eat. When I bitch I had to work at McDonalds to get a Corolla and a hockey stick - it makes me look like a tool in perspective

With an Asian wife. It all makes sense now.

Edit: let's all #brohug over our pasts and get this bitch back on track - pun intended.

mimo - totally missed your question about the spare tire thing. I'd honestly just get one of those compresser and sealant kits. Amazon, autozone, whatever. You'll get more room to throw in some crap you never use like an umbrella and a jacket or whatever you want. If you had a spare tire, you'd be getting it replaced anyway, so I wouldn't waste that space with a spare.

Had to take the car in for unscheduled brake service this morning.

Interesting thing is BMW SF drove me to work in an i3 which is what they are now using for their shuttles. I think they are having trouble moving them even though they are basically giving them away with crazy lease deals. We were tempted to lease one a few months ago but I'm just not sure the clamshell doors will work for us in getting kids in and out of our narrow garage. If you ignore that, plus the way it looks and the high list price, the i3 is objectively an interesting vehicle to me. The acceleration from 0-30 is awesome and it feels really well put together. Will be interesting to see what they do with the line in the future. I think they need to figure out a way to lop at least $10k off the purchase price and double the mileage before it will be competitive with the Model 3 but for urban dwellers with light usage requirements, I can see the appeal.
