The Laramie Limited is for truck owners who want to be able to take their wife out to dinner in a luxury vehicle at night but still have a truck that's tough, said Bob Hegbloom, president and CEO of the Ram brand for Fiat Chrysler Automobiles.

"These are the people who ... own the company, the guy who is in the boardroom all day but he wants to brag to his buddies," that he has a truck that can also go off-road if necessary, Hegbloom said.

The 2015 Laramie Limited is the second Ram 1500 model to feature a new interlocking grille that breaks from Ram's well-known crosshair grille.

Correction: The truck is for guys who want to act like they go off road. The same people that give Jeeps a bad name, the same people that make Guest hate Jeep drivers. They'll never take it off road but they want people to think that maybe they do.

BTW, I bought another Jeep.



I laughed my ass off at the end of Cars when Sarge was running the off road course... "I can't go off road I might get my tires dirty."

Prosecutor: Co-pilot, alone at helm of Germanwings, began descent manually, 'intentionally'


Apparently the pilot went to the lavatory and left this nut alone on the stick. "Okay, while you're peeing I'll just crash this thing into a mountain."

If you have to kill yourself then kill yourself but there's no need take 150 souls and a $100 million piece of equipment with you. There's speculation that the missing Malaysian airliners went down intentionally too.

I sincerely hope it was just the co-pilot being nuts. If this is some lone wolf ISIS sleeper sympathizer, I can't even imagine the heights of the silly security theater at airports we'll all now be subjected to if pilots are going all in for ISIS. Are we going to have an air marshal with a gun on everyone (including the flight crew) for all flights?

Is it me, or does the fact that a pilot/co-pilot has the ability to lock the other out of the cockpit elicit one of these?

I think it's a security measure so that if some passenger sees one or the other leave, they won't leap up and bust down the door, but you would think they would have some sort of keypad or eyeball recognition device

The door has 3 position lock

unlocked

normal - needs a key code entered on a keypad for entry

locked - no access allowed

Mike M could give the full technical break down.

Chickenpox: Mom furious after school sends son home

http://www.freep.com/story/news/health/ ... /70542702/

"I don't like this bullying. I'm going to push back somewhat. I'm not a media person — I'm not. I like privacy. But I think it's important for people to know the other side.

"It's not right. It's truly bullying. My son is being singled out and we're made to feel like were bad parents because we've decided not to vaccinate anymore."


Shut up.

That's because you are. You're also stupid and a public health threat, and I can't wait until these antivaccers start getting the shit sued out of them by parents of vaccinated kids who get sick because the herd immunity is being increasingly compromised by these fucking morons.

Damn free riders.

There are way too many "smart" people doing stupid things. Among the college-educated crowd are the anti-vaxers, the vacines-cause-autism folks, the gluten-is-poison folks (the ones that aren't gluten-intolerant), the GMO food will kill me if I eat it crowd, the irradiated milk is radioactive crowd, the colon cleansers, the foot detoxers, the ear corners, and the one who took her kids to the ghost TV show thing at a local theater because the show proves that ghosts are real. And the structured water folks. And all the supplement hawkers. And the think about money and you'll get it without taking any action folks. All degreed idiots.

I think he meant "coner" not "corner". To get rid of earaches or earwax they roll up a cone of paper, insert it into the ear and light it on fire. If nothing else, it will get rid of the ear. Or the kid it's attached to

A friend (former girlfriend, really, if that matters) is a part of the anti-vaccination crowd, but in her case there's a very sad case. At around at two her only child had a bad fever and at the hospital he was injected with something -what it was I don't recall, but the important point is that he was injected- and literally before her eyes he slid down into a state of multiple allegies and a non-verbal autism. This is a woman with a doctorate and years of professional experience in child development and psychology. Whereas laymen might confuse correlation with causality I'd expect a woman with this level of education and credentials to know better, and yet she is convinced that something awful was in that needle and thereby took down her son.
