    Going to spend my weekend creating a budget including risk analysis for an investor, good times.


    If the work pays of at the end, this goes in "the other thread".

    I park diagonal (across spaces) all the time, but that's because my car is very nice. Not a valid parking method for most.

    Reaching into your own pocket and "touching the button" is not the same as the act of making love to a woman (maybe how they do it in Japan). Also, it is best not to call the act "touching the button," as it sends a disparaging message.

    betimes it appears (this is to mean that it looks as if) that you park of the asshole.

    A girl I know is getting married tomorrow. Unfortunately, their venue is in a federal park...
    On Tuesday they were told that it would be ok. The park was closed but they could still have it as a private event.

    Then the national park service decides that they actually can't have their wedding there...so they were scrambling *yesterday* to get a new venue, make changes, and get all the vendors on board. wtf? fuck all of the people who are trying to say that this doesn't effect anyone besides the already useless govt employees (whose facebook posts are intermingled with this poor girl trying to make sure everyone is notified about the venue change).

    Luckily it looks like it will work out, new venue is 15 minutes from the original. Hopefully they are cutting them a deal...the new venue looks expensive and much larger (seats almost 2000).

    It is a comment responding to Stitchy's complaint above about diagonal parkers. I was just conveying that I understand Stitchy's point of view as regards the vast majority of cases, but my own situation is exceptional on account of I have a bespoke car and want to keep it free from harm. (I think Bhowie is in the same position.) People who have regular cars (bought off the rack, so to speak) should park within the lines.

    I can say with certainty that diagonal parking will not afford your vehicle any degree of security.

    the cars in question today were as follows:

    one gold, early 90s acura

    one white, late model buick


    in general, one is actually more likely to receive intentional vandalism when parking like a dick bag, than receiving accidental damage when parking like a mentch.

    This is certainly false. This is how Link and I park and we've had nothing happen to our vehicles (automobile).

    When people see a bespoke car, they usually assume (correctly) that it is protected by security measures, and so they don't dare act out against it.

    Did the early 90s Acura have a patina, as high quality vintage articles sometimes do? Maybe the owner was worried that someone would ruin the patina.

    would you consider rust to be patina?

    I park my Jeep wherever I damn well please (spots that are not traditionally considered reasonable places to park).

    It also has keyless entry (no doors in the door holes).

    I have no such affliction (no key fob).

    I just prefer to only put my key in one place, rather than sampling many places to put it (metaphor for being happily married).
