I will die a happy man knowing that I have listened to the sound of angels feet and the soundtrack of the gods. This thing is Thor's hammer, polished.

So just play the song The Gods Entering Valhalla when you drive it.

Oh boy, can't wait.  This is a recent post by them, right?  Car seems a bit anachronistic for 2019.

More like 1959.  Renault Dauphine electric conversion.   Henney Kilowatt was one such conversion. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Henney_Kilowatt

Uhm, no.  Not when they're playing my hometown team!

I also watched them beat Atlanta, a place I lived for a couple of years while in my 20s, and I believe the Falcons had never won a Super Bowl and were last there in 1999.  The Falcons appeared to have the upper hand.  They then lost it in the craziest of overtime upsets.  I left during the overtime and found out that everything changed while I had stepped into a store to get some groceries.  That was demoralizing.

Someone else's turn.  Like Los Angeles's turn.

The only thing I know for certain is that I will be eating pizza tomorrow night.

LOL

Like..in the video. He IS from California, you know.  :D

I wanna know, how many can this guy actually win.  Its fantastic what we are witnessing with Tom Brady.  I grew up watching and loving Dan Marino with the Dolphins (I was always a Cowboys fan though.) I was mesmerized with Joe Montana. HE was the greatest before Brady. Then Steve Young comes along and I liked him. Of course Troy was my favorite though  Then there was John Elway and his late comebacks. Fascinating to watch on a Monday night.

But 'twas Joe Montana to Jerry Rice or Steve Young to Jerry Rice that captured my heart and I thought Id never see that again.  (Minus the 3 Superbowls of the Dallas Cowboys in the early 1990s. Those were great.  HOW 'BOUT 'DEM COWBOYS!!!) 👌

Until Tom Brady came along...

That Superbowl victory a couple of years ago, the one you mentioned. It might have been heartbreaking for many fans, like youself, but if you are a fan of the game, it was just...just...pure magic to see him work.

And THAT is why I wanna see how many can this guy,with Belichik, win...

I mean, its rare these kinds of things. And when they do happen, I wanna ride that ride as long as we can. I wanna see how far they can go before it really, trully ends.

THAT plus what is going on in Boston the last 20 years is just incredible too.

The Red Sox have 3 World Series or so, the Celtics have 1 or 2 Championships, the Patriots have, Ive lost count...the Bruins have 1 Stanley Cup.

And many finals appearances coming in 2nd place.

Gimme the  keys to the cah.  Im going to Bahsten to pahk  in Hahved Yahd.  Gonna eat some clam chowdah while Im at it!!!

I HATE the Red Sox. I dont like the Patriots all that much. Im indifferent to basketball so I really dont care for the Celtics... I am a Bruins fan though as I HATE Les Canadiens. Proud of my citiy's 27 or so Stanley Cups, 24 of them belonging to the Habs, but yeah...

To see Brady and Boston do this...is just great in my eyes!

Ahhh, So that is what you have been missing, the Brain Software Update. I am sure there is also a few hot patches and security updates to apply too! :P

I wanted to make a funny.

But I wrote what I wrote. (but now edited. only the dancing dude is still alive in that post.   I tried for it to be funny. But alas, it was not funny. 

 I tried and failed. I am at your mercy now.   😥

That is one of the GM Premium upgraded packages you have to pay for. Sadly not everyone buys the upgrades. ;) :P

Every time Toyota tries to shed its vanilla image, it fails with very few exceptions.  The brand new RAV4 is getting tepid (at best) reviews everywhere I look... it is being lambasted for not being nice to drive, noisy engine... etc. etc.  Internet ppl like to make fun of Chevy pickups with square wheelwells, and Jeeps with trapezoidal wheelwells... but the new Rav4 has like ZERO curved lines on it.  If any vehicle needs square wheels to make it look cohesive, the new RAV is it.

 

The Corolla Hatchback is the best looking Toyota out right now, along with the 86... which I deem a Subaru because of its boxer engine.  The new Corolla sedan seems to have lost some weirdness and gained some grace in its look.  The Yaris sedan is saved by its clean Mazda sheetmetal, ugly mug notwithstanding.

The Highlander is not too bad I guess.  The Tacoma has weird packaging issues, and a non-competitive engine/trans.  Tundra is a time capsule.  Avalon/Camry have alien front ends.  2019 Prius has lost some of its otherworldy details, is improved.  Overall, Toyotas are just not appealing to me.

The 86 is a Subaru and the Camry is a decent vanilla sedan. The 8 speed in the Ranger would make me give it the nod over the aging Tacoma.

Prius is funky and cool but not my thing.

Not quite.

The 86 would be a Subaru if the 86 and the siblings would have a Subaru boxer under the hood.

Im perfectly fine with the engine choice just to be clear, but as is, the Toyobarus are in fact, more vanilla Toyota then anything else.  :yes:

 

PS: I like very much the Toyobarus. A tad small for my tastes, but I like a lot. I would love if Subaru boxer in the BRZ, but hey, you cant always get what you want.  I think Jagger said that once... 🤔
