I was going to say Omaha doesn't, but I guess Dundee is that, and North and west Omaha kinda count too. So yeah, is probably that most cities have them, considering Omaha is a pretty small city.

Yesterday I tried Googling whether or not clipping your nails in a room you share with someone else is a big deal. I was mostly looking because stepping on them or something might be annoying and I wanted to be considerate. I found a handful of results that were pretty much people getting violently upset that they saw another person clipping their nails. At first I thought it was meant to be satirical, but there were enough instances of this behavior for me to believe this is actually a pretty common view. The thing is, I never knew this. I was never taught that fingernails were an unholy abomination and I had always just clipped my nails in my bedroom. I also found people saying that brushing your hair was absolutely revolting. This is all news to me and, assuming this isn't some fad, I don't know how I hadn't heard of this until yesterday.

 

Is grooming really considered disgusting? This all seems pretty counter-intuitive to me. How do you feel about personal grooming?

It's not a big deal. Just clean up your toenail clippings.

Finger nail click? Whatever, just clean. Keep toe clipping to your own privacy though. Like after you shower and it's still only you in the bathroom. Hair brushing? Who cares.

Another night shift (on break currently). Last time I worked I called the police on a suspected kid running away from home. It started to be suspicious when he began to ask for directions to a city around ~30km away... by bicycle at around 3:30 in the morning. If it were an older man I wouldn't be concerned but he looked no more than 15. I asked him some follow up questions, which made me feel even more uneasy. Sure enough, my assumption was correct when I saw the media release on my local police's webpage with someone matching the exact same description (from the area too). :thumbup:

The week or so after getting my wisdom teeth pulled out was miserable. 

 

From memory it felt like months before I could eat something like chips again without stabbing my gums

I hear these things about wisdom teeth and I'm grateful for how mine went. Just the 2-3 days of extra soft stuff and minimum period of painkillers and I went to the dentist a week later for a regular checkup and was hack to normal within 2 weeks.

I wish they'd given me effective painkillers when they took my teeth. They gave me hydrocodone/acetaminophen 7.5/325, and I couldn't tell that I'd taken anything.

When I told the surgeon that I thought he'd given me a placebo, he prescribed oxycodone/acetaminophen 7.5/325. They didn't do a much for the pain, but my sex drive spiked.

I didn't even realize I my surgery was happening when they took all four of my wisdoms. 5 minutes after I took 800mg of Tylenol I asked if I was ready and they said it was over. Not even a day of discomfort, I ended up drinking the next day which was only weird because there were holes in my jaw. They prescribed me some generic brand vicoden which I took but it didn't make any difference in my life. I stopped taking them after day 3

How to tell them you want to take it to a mechanic?

 

"Hey, I want to take the car to the mechanic before I buy it. If not I won't be able to purchase it, sorry." Anybody that doesn't want it taken to the mechanic after that probably knows something is wrong with the car.

Basically what bonez said. Definitely go civic or accord if youre going for 90s cars. Maybe a carry or Carolla if one is in that price range, but honestly you're better off saving a little longer and getting asome new a car as possible lest you buy someone's problem and not someone's car. Remember that cars aren't meant to last forever. I'd say try to spend $1000 for every year you plan on operating the car at purchase

That makes sense, I guess I'm more wondering about the process, cause obviously they're not going to let you drive off with it.

Either ask to go for a test drive and do it, or let them come with you.

I don't want to go into any debt, just need something that will get me to and from work for as cheap as possible

 

Is public transport not feasible over there then?

It's usually not. I got my first car for 4,000 so I understand the need. I'd just hate to see you spend everything you have just to look for another car again next year

Double post but who cares

Yeah I understand what you mean, ideally I'd spend 5k on a decent car but I really don't want to go into debt cause I'd like to be able to focus on school for my next semester while only working one shift a week. I understand it's a gamble but I have a friend who knows how to repair cars so I can get most basic problems fixed for the cost of parts.

I bought my first car for $3000 three years ago and it's still going strong. I have probably spent $2000 on repairs (brakes/new clutch) but other than that it has been good.

Anyone have experience buying a used car privately? How do you go about telling them you want to take it to a mechanic before you buy it? I'm looking to spend less than $2500 (which goes a lot less far than it does in the US) so anything from a dealership is out of the question. Thinking about getting a late 90s civic, my only criteria are that it passes a safety(or requires less than a couple hundred in repairs to pass), is automatic and is good on gas.

I took over payments on my dad's Aveo, but he never signed off and wound up totaling it, so that doesn't count.

 

My first vehicle was a motorcycle (1983 Honda Nighthawk 650) I found listed on Craigslist and paid $600 for. By September of that year, I realized it would soon get too cold to ride; I went to a dealer and bought a 2002 Firebird. You know, because I liked it and thought it was funny to refer to it as a Winter beater. Somebody ran a stop sign into the side of the car and totaled it late in December. After riding a motorcycle to work once in December, I found a 1997 Mercury Mountaineer on Craigslist for $800. After a brief test drive, I paid the asking price and the other guy signed off the title. Two and a half years later, I'm letting my nephew use it, because he doesn't have a vehicle and it's an excuse to keep a truck around.

 

We sort of bought my wife's car (2000 Buick LeSabre) from her parents. When my mother-in-law found out we were paying, she had my father-in-law sign off on the rest as a wedding gift. It was originally her grandparents' car. That was a little different, because everybody involved wanted to see her get a decent car and for the car to be taken care of, so full disclosure was a given. It had also been in the family since it was new, and they kept detailed logs down to recording mileage and date at each fuel stop.

 

I had a string of issues (since resolved) with the Mountaineer late last year and early this year, which led to my wife and I buying our 2007 Mazda 3 from a dealer.

 

I've actually never taken a vehicle to a mechanic before buying it, and usually don't check too thoroughly myself. I think the only time that's bitten me is when I spent $1000 a 1983 Honda Goldwing (GL1100) with rear brakes (actually both wheels, because linked brakes) that don't release. 1983 is the only year the GL1100 had linked brakes and the GL1200 was introduced in 1984 with a different brake system, so parts are kind of a pain to get. That said, I'm not advocating buying a car without having it checked.

 

If you're looking for alternate models, my father and sister have both had good luck with Mazda 323s, and I love our Mazda 3. Ford Rangers are plentiful and common around here, and not horrible on fuel. Friends and family have all had good experiences with Saturn's sedans from 1998-2008 or so.

 

Really, though, anything that's been taken care of will be better than something that's been neglected or worse. Check out the seller too, not just the car. If they can get really excited about it and want to share all its cool (or annoying) little design quirks, history, and nostalgia, odds are they know the car and care about it enough to have taken care of it. Bonus point if they have more of the same model in the driveway or are selling it to buy (or because they bought) a newer version. If the house and yard are trashed and their other vehicles are rolling refuse bins, how well do you think they took care of the car they're selling? If they snap and bark at their kids (or spouse, friends, etc.) while you're there, how do you think they treat a machine when nobody's looking?

 

 

EDIT: That kind of got away from me.

This whole week has just been a piss-take, and it's only Tuesday. I basically had an emotional breakdown at work on Sunday, I felt super shit on Monday too. Today was going well until my ex messaged me on Facebook talking about some bullshit that pissed me off, and then I went to work on mixing some dirt for some new tarantulas I'm getting this week and the bags of dirt I bought turned out to be a bunch of ground up sticks and plastic. Now I've got to go out and get different dirt from a place that's like 30 minutes away since all of the stores close to me only carry that one shitty brand of top soil.....

“Mmmhmm.”
