Then vs Now and it’s still great
Give that dad a medal (just don't show them GT)
@twopotatoes, seeing as last I checked, it's non-canon, why would he bother?
@Slayer9200, just making sure others here know 👌 also, dads drink, maybe he gets drunk and thinks "oooh, gt makes every car better, must be the same with dragonball!"
@twopotatoes, I wouldn't argue it makes a car better....it usually just makes it more expensive.
@Slayer9200, the scenario is that he's drunk bud, I've worked in the auto industry since I was 18, oh god, that's a decade ago. Oh no....
@twopotatoes, hey man if you're enjoying it then I don't see the problem. I grew up in it personally and occasionally miss it. Worked in my dad's shop basically since I could walk. Only just managed to get out of it last year cause I was working at O'Reilly's to get through college after the Air Force didn't work out and get my current job. Most of the time GT just means a slightly better tune and forced induction on some vehicles that didn't already have it.
@Slayer9200, by the way you are right, usually GT or "grand touring" just provides extra interior options and exterior cosmetics, while higher end vehicles might incorporate additional performance upgrades like the engine and suspension. The majority though are generally lower end cars have been using the GT as a sales tactic to attract unknowing customers into paying 5-10k more for a car because it has leatherette and a navigation with Carplay while providing essentially no economic or performance upgrades. So it's mostly not worth it, but a Mustang GT is a good example of it meaning something when comparing the the model directly below it, currently the 2022 model is either an ecoboost 4cyl turbo garbage car or jumping straight to the GT 5.0 V8 that'll leave a puddle in the seat when your girl gets out.
@Slayer9200, also my whole mom's side of the family worked on cars, car shows, drag racing, and we loved going to Bob's Big Boy on Friday nights. Unfortunately everyone who was a car buff has passed, but I still carry on the tradition. I used to fall asleep in the back of my uncles 32 Ford pickup, listening to straightpipes and smelling carburetors. Still love it and I'll never stop, so I feel you on that man.
@twopotatoes, that's the kind of stuff I miss the most. Once my budget gets more free and I get my credit cards payed off I plan to get into stuff like racing and restoration as a hobby. I've already got my first thing picked out which is getting the dune buggy my dad built from scratch with his best friend back out to the sand dunes. Just need the time and money to do it.
@Slayer9200, unfortunately I'm not as mechanically inclined as I'd like to be, although I've done maintenance in the past, sometimes with assistance from friends or a shop. I'm not even close to an ASE certified mechanic, but I can hang with the big boys. If you don't mind me asking, what happened to the Air Force? I almost joined the Navy because I have veterans in the family and a SEAL too, which is what I wanted to do, but they couldn't take me because of my thyroid issue. They wanted me too because I shít you not, I don't know how, I got a 99 on the ASVAB and I was done early too. I came out and they were like "do you need some help?" and I was like "no, I've just been done for a couple minutes and didn't know if you guys knew." My parents said they went to check and basically ran back like "WHEN CAN HE START?!?" only to be super sad.
@twopotatoes, neither am I. I'm more general knowledge in diagnostic and R&R and it's what made me as good as I was at selling parts.
As far as the Air Force. I had a 97 on my ASVAB. Went to basic and got a kidney infection week 5 and was allowed to finish training before they threw me in a hold over flight. Even made honor graduate. But they disqualified me over the symptom of pissing blood and passed it off as chronic when it had never happened before. Got Medically separated me a week before they would have to characterize it as a discharge and let me keep my benefits and sent me home.
@Slayer9200, geez that's a rough ride bud, but I could always tell that you're smart and getting in the Air Force just proves it further, they're like the MIT or Harvard of the five branches. I would have expected you to get 100 if it were possible haha Did you get your full GI Bill for college, or what happened? I'm still working my way through CSUN right now, luckily I haven't had to take out loans and I have enough financial aid to keep my head, more like face, above water.
@twopotatoes, no benefits at all. If I had been there another week they would have given them to me. I've had to rely on student loans and what help I could get from family. I'm up to my eyeballs in student debt. My recruiter basically pulled out the job list and told me to take my pick. And this was in highschool. I didn't have to go to the MEPS center to get it done. But I'm making more money than most E7s start out at in two years less than the Air Force's theoretical minimum of 8 years. But I think my most important developments have been as a person. I've managed to reduce my mild superiority complex in most cases and learn that not all battles are worth the time. I mostly have managed to adopt a take it easy approach and do a lot of self reflection and recognize that my world view and knowledge isn't complete
@Slayer9200, I reread it immediately after replying and saw my mild dyslexia took hold for a minute, that is a shít deal with the medical staff labeling it chronic, you would thing prior medical charts would have give rise to any similar issues in the past 🙄 Even without being in any of the armed services, life has humbled me (unless I get crazy drunk which I do my best not to do). In my eyes, my world view can only be my own because it will never mirror anybody else's on the planet exactly, and as for knowledge, that's infinite. As long as what we perceive or classify as "time" continues, more is happening and therefore more knowledge is perpetually being thrust into the universe no matter how miniscule. Similarly, talents or abilities like athleticism, memorization ability, singing, acting, etc. will never ALL be mastered by one person, so I just find a few things I enjoy greatly and hone into those crafts, and enjoy the rest of life at my leisure whenever possible.
@twopotatoes, oh trust me, I can relate to the getting stupid drunk stuff. I usually just end up obnoxious and I get hooked on a topic really easily until I've said my piece at least a couple of times. And that is a good point. I know enough to know that I won't ever know everything, but what little I do know I am trying to get better at. In any case. I've got to get to bed. It was a pleasure talking with you and if you want you can add me on discord. Same user name and my profile picture is a picture of Pikachu dressed as Deadpool.
@Slayer9200, Pikapool, love it. Dammit now I need to redownload the discord app haha get some rest bud, don't let the bedbugs bite! 🌙
@Slayer9200, technically it's Canon just another timeline. I think? Dbz continuity is honestly a bit of a mess
@twopotatoes, it is what it is, but i believe it is worth it to see the SS4 forms and the omega shenron fights
@abelgray, I think Omega is one of the ugliest villians dragon ball ever got. Ss4 is really sick though not gonna lie
Men only want one thing
@SimonPetrikov, and it’s fücking beautiful
Why is he saying "wave"?
@The real meowman, its called the kamehameha wave…
@MMSieBreeze, does Goku ever actually say "Kamehameha wave" though?
@The real meowman, no
@bobbylupo, so, again, why would this guy be saying "wave"?
@The real meowman, idk I didn’t make the comic
