Pick both: Ender's Game or Old Man's War.

If you like Florida adventure then DEFINITELY Randy Wayne White's Doc Ford series - my wife calls it 'dick lit' but they're good easy reads.

I never could get into dune, or the Rama series. I do love Niven, Henelein, and Weber

A new guy, you know the thread rules?

Arguing about everything but in good spirits. This being the super secret off topic thread of the forum, all subjects are allowed but we selfgovern in a way, all members (the membership fee is posting here so we make millions each!) tend to uphold the rules.

Welcome to ssott.

There apparently is a game where you can be a kid in the 90's finland. They chop logs to pay for parts for datsun and after that they spend hours rebuilding shit us parents actually did then.

Anyway, all my kids are hooked on it. It has horrible graphics, you can play music even, which is basically the developer singing shit.

We thought the pokemon go was bad. I'm willing to bet if this game gets from developing stages to sale, your kids will be googling your first car too and trying buy one.

Neither of us owned a datsun, but we are fucked cuz if the kids can find one, they're buying one and rebuilding it.

I am not fit for this parenting. I love that they're willing to learn how to rebuild an engine. My objection is the tunes they're listening.

Datsun? As in 280z? Vastly overrated car.

A fun fact, there is not one on sale around here.

Those were before my teenager years, but I do have to admit the kids and the hubby are obsessed with the game, and also with the idea of them rebuilding one.

Which makes me wonder, who exactly is going tobbuild the jokkis (a rally pit car) for them. I'm guessing i have a new hobby shortly.

Also, it's again the girls. They told dad that they can figure it out and finance it. "Dad you know mom, all we have to do is to tell her we want to learn about this shit, and you won't spend a cent to it. She's not really good at that feminism thing and cost sharing."

Just yesterday I pulled up next to a 1970s datsun long bed



It was absolutely gleaming in its original yellow - I'm pretty sure it was recently repainted because the thing was absolutely spotless



(that's not it, but it's the original color)

You should see some of the super old cars Taipei has. It's a riot.

I should. I tend to take photos of cars I just don't see in the States there. They do have the occasional, "Oh it's a 911. Woo." Or the occasional Lambo or Ferrari that completely sticks out. I know the police there drive a modified BMW 320i, the F30.

Can't wait to go back. I promised my cousin I would, was supposed to last year but... well COVID.

My sister and her man were over here tonight.

We had dinner, I felt weird about the look my kids had on their faces.

"So, J, you know this game My summer car? If you're trying to marry our aunt, you better know this shit"

Turns out, J has played the game . He walked away with a written consent to marry my mildly adopted sister. I'm not even going to attempt to guess what exactly happened here tonight but I think I have to now admit the guy is approved.

I never fit in with the nerds, but since I'm raising four, married one and at times I comprehend what they're speaking about, I can't very well be denying my sister her own herd of nerds.

As for the car, I got you specs, I just forgot them. Turns out, I do have a history in that car! I need to father up some info, but it seems the car i once drove for all of 5 minutes before crashing it, could be bought in a few years.

Plus you started a secret society of nerds. SSOTT. Or is it just me?
I have to deal with a German national tomorrow night. Any tips? Can he give me a deal on a BMW?
