It Doesn't Get Much Better Than This...

I knew there was a reason I liked space travel so much. My ship is relatively easy to fix. Everything in its place, everything easy to get to. Most of the time, things work for a long time (unless someone messes with the systems)

With the way they build cars (most notably, the Chevy Cavalier, circa 1997), is it any wonder that GM keeps laying people off on its way out of business?

Of course, ever since it was bought used around 6 years ago, it's been nothing but trouble, so I've heard. The really disturbing part is that even going through numerous repairs, it's still been cheaper than buying something new.

    Hey, I know whatcha mean Aston. Chevy owners used to poke fun at Ford cars -- called them "fix or repair daily." It's a case of pot and kettle. Meanwhile, vehicles get more and more expensive, but heck, we can't afford to drive them anyway since the political gas consortium keeps padding their profits.

  2. That reminds me of this book I read called The White Room--a terrible book, but with one funny part. There was a truck seen often by the characters with a bumper sticker that said "Friends don't let friends drive Chevys."
