    Is there any top Amazon executive that is from Nashville or wants to live there?

    Is rural Ohio dying?

    That kind of work is ALWAYS available because it sucks. Most people would rather cut their income in half rather than put up with it.

    Nu-Country is about as unhipster as it gets, but old country (pre-Alabama, we'll say) and bluegrass are 100% hipster-approved.

    The Australian media was convinced it was about demolition derby cars.

    BMX was gigantic in the '80s. Kids loved it since the bikes fit them a lot better than the 10-speeds of the '70s and you could have a lot more fun on them than say a Schwinn Stingray. You saw tons of kids on BMXs all day every day back then. But once they turned 16 most people stopped riding in the '90s. Another thing that happened in '90s Ohio is that the parents started dragging their kids out of the bikeable suburbs and moving them to semi-rural roads that were unbikeable. BMXs are totally useless when everyone lives on 3-5 acres, has a five-digit address and the speed limit is 55mph.

    Oh yes. The cab is almost all window. The peak of visibility for the average car was in the '90s though. Here's a car from the '70s that is tough to beat on the other hand. The BMW 2002

    Also, Bluetooth through the car stereo speakers has been standard on almost all cars and phones since 2010 yet people still don't take 5 minutes to set it up and thus spend hours a week driving around with the phone plastered to their left ear on hold with call centers or the public sector. I have also retrofitted the aforementioned IROC-Z with this feature that comes with most aftermarket head units today.

    Most of today's cars have truly horrible visibility outside of them as compared to cars of 20 years ago. Sedan, SUV, pickup truck, crossover -- it doesn't matter. When I'm in my IROC-Z I can see everything and never even have to think about "blind spots". Today's sky-high vehicles have to have super thick roof pillars, huge butts and tall doors because they are always trying to flip over and have to be able to be smashed into by 6000 pound SUVs. Most drivers aren't able to compensate for this and are more careless and more likely to create accidents that would have never happened in cars from 20 years ago.

    ^As we all know, that's the 8am Paul Harvey teaser rather than the 5pm Rest of the Story.

    By the looks of things I figured I-670 ate it -- and it did.
