    Amen. Especially annoying when I’m looking at GMT800s and I can clearly see paint missing in the photos but description says “mint”
    You know what's mint? https://forums.beyond.ca/threads/412...pane-BBQ-Grill

    Buy it if you know what's good for you.

    I have seen that bbq in person and it's far from mint. Quite beat up. Buyer beware.

    Cyclists riding side by side on street bike lanes. Now I'll admit that I'm bad for this on occasion too, but it is really annoying when you get a group of "cyclists" riding in a pack rather than single file. This is Calgary, not tour de France.

    Oh, and older cyclists who get upset when you pass them on their carbon bike while you're riding 80's steel.

    Tons of ads that say "great condition for the year" and "typical rust". Well then it would be typical condition for the year, wouldn't it?

    Anyone who expects trucks over 10 years old to be in anything close to "amazing shape" is delusional.

    I’ve seen it but it’s very few and far between. I’d love to buy a reasonably nice 06-07 like my truck but they all have the same rocker, cab corner, rear fender flare and front fender bottom rust unless you want to pay $30-45k for a 14 year old truck lol.

    Unless you have some kind of restoration dreams, it almost never makes sense to buy a "perfect" 10-15 year old truck when you can have an imperfect truck that's 5 years newer.
    Fender rust doesn't impair functionality. A 4 speed transmission does.

    I’d agree in most cases except the 06-16 GMs mechanically other than turbo changes and emissions changes are pretty identical mechanically and I prefer the 06-07.5 body style to the 07.5-14 body style personally. The 15+ are in a whole different league in terms of road noise and interior etc however.

    Driving around in something rusty is for the Dodge guys to enjoy. I hate when Dodge owners escape to other makes and start wrecking them with their Dodgeness.

    It's typical condition when you average it out. Rust is typical. Seat backs are clean with no stab marks. Blood stains not evident in the bed. No broken tail lights. No apparent damage from removal of bull horn hood ornament. Only partially hail damaged.

    I've never wanted to continue a conversation with someone who says "it's not about the miles per gallon, it's about the smiles per gallon".

    Frigging spider keeps getting in front of my doorbell cam, should I change the colour of the LED?
    Spray some anti spider spray around the doorbell. I've heard that helps. But not on the camera itself.

    Then apparently you've never been in the market for a car that is cranking through 22L/100km because it simply was not designed with any fucks given to any manner of fuel economy.
    I have a car that demands some attention when I fuel it up. When the typical dumb questions come up around like "what kinda mileage you get wit that thing?!¿?"
    It's pretty easy to respond with "it's about what you'd expect with comparable vehicles" which is just another way of saying "#SmilesPerGallon".

    Not sure if you’re dumb or an asshole.

    The benefit of masks is not known at this time. But we do know it is some non-trivial amount more than zero.

    We also know that the cost of mask use is, essentially, zero.

    So the cost:benefit of mask use is approaching infinity. I'll take that every time. And every time I see someone without a mask, I think they are stupid.

    I'll admit. On my 40th birthday last week, this is what I did. However, Ive got a full head of mostly brown hair.

    People who ride bicycles in the middle lane of 16th ave East where it’s a 90km/h zone.
