    I ASSume that the e-Golf's LED headlights are federalized. Would they bolt right in?

    It's like the US is a couple years behind euro, and it seems like all we get is the left over scraps from a couple a years ago.
    I prefer to use the mold analogy. When a mold is made, there are a finite number of parts that can be pulled from it. As it ages, the parts start to lose their quality.

    In their German factories, VW uses the molds for up to 75% of their projected lifetime. Then, they carefully pack them into crates, ship them to Puebla (build that border wall dammit!) Mexico, and they are used to make the inferior North American cars.

    Consumer advice to any North American VW buyer - run (don't walk!) away from any potential VW purchase with a May build date. More than one person has reported cars that feel like a Cinco de Mayo hangover with May build dates.....

    The lottery: A tax on people who are bad at math.
    The engineering problems are likely insurmountable. It would be like proposing to land a rocket booster section on a barge floating in the middle of the ocean.

    Actually, it does serve a purpose in society. It gives the downtrodden masses the hope that they can take a shortcut to improve their miserable lives without having to work for it, which prevents them from rising up and overthrowing the ruling class. It is sad that it targets the people who can least afford to throw money away...because they're bad at math.....

    You assume it is a lottery ticket...........

    Indeed the mega and power ball were a loser but I had too........

    No one will complain when NostraJackAss is successful because he is very giving..........but like Pepperidge farms cookies he never fuckin forgets!

    Operation cupcake will have a dual list ...........cards for the ones that can come and cards for the people that are informed that they are forbidden.

    That's not the point. I could have easily bought the tickets before they sold out...but cannot make the actual trip to use them without an overwhelming amount of pre-planning for IV infusion stuff out-of-state that I can't possibly pull off without a fixed launch date and cashing in a lot of favors. Ten years ago, I would have been racing all y'all to the NASA Causeway gate from home. Reference post #5 in this thread.....
