Its not just Kyoto based companies. I worked for another very big name Japanese company (non video game) based in Tokyo and THE EXACT SAME bullshit went on there too. And it happens on every single level all the way down to deciding whether to budget for a small holiday party. » 1/22/15 2:59pm Thursday 2:59pm

In my experience many of these vehicles will full well be short on refrigerant. BUT I can tell you a car from the factory barring issues will hold refrigerant for-ever. I had an 86 Regal Limited with 300k miles in 2004 that had ice cold AC, original never recharged. So most likely if it needs a recharge its because it… » 1/20/15 3:43pm Tuesday 3:43pm

He drove both cars to ensure he got the points for both cars, in the driver championship. This ensured he would win the championship by a wide margin. Its actually pretty douchey as well as I've seen once or twice he had to be nearly carried out of the car due to exhaustion. » 1/19/15 4:06pm Monday 4:06pm

This is how I approach online reviews. I NEVER take them at face value but what I look for is consistent comments that may indicate some sort of design defect. Especially reading Amazon reviews you find that a good 90% of people are too dumb to RTFM and then give a bad review when the device fucks up because they… » 1/18/15 8:04pm 1/18/15 8:04pm

Man, you speak the truth. TBH 80% of parties are Bud/Bud Light/Mich Ultra/etc with maybe Heinekin or Stella tossed in there. I bring along something Belgian or whatever and people try it "ohh thats nice" and go right back to their Budweiser. Some of them legitimately LOVE Bud. To each his own, I'm not offended (unless… » 1/16/15 3:49pm 1/16/15 3:49pm

Tipping taxi drivers was always funny to me. I mean what are you tipping for him doing his job? How is he going out the way for you? You're being charged for every second that engine is running with your ass in the seat. And most guys who own their cabs are doing pretty well. I know a guy who went from owning 1 to… » 1/15/15 3:03pm 1/15/15 3:03pm

Used to happen with me all the time, I'm getting better but still get it occasionally in both 1st and sometimes 3rd person games. I spoke to a doctor and what it is is your brain getting confused as it perceives motion on screen but your body doesn't feel the motion happening. Its a type of vertigo. I used to get it… » 1/15/15 11:58am 1/15/15 11:58am

I watched the first race in China and this race in BA. In China they looked slow, but in BA they actually looked fast and the drivers had a bit more of a handle on them. Also aside from Karun Chandhok every driver in the series is a decent shoe, some just never getting the shot they deserve. Success F1 is a… » 1/14/15 4:17pm 1/14/15 4:17pm
