I'd rather be seen in a camry or accord over a C class or 3 series

accords and camry's are great cars. civic> c class/3


My previous vehicle was a 2018 Camry XSE which I liked everybit as much as the 2005 535.

I know about KPOP through my teenage niece. Never suspected the audience was so...varied.

Just noticed that Kanye has some new number 1 hit. Which reminded me of my opinion of him -- he has no discernable talent whatsoever. I find him extremely unappealing. I don't get his music. I don't get his personality. I don't get the clothing line. Don't get the crazy reality TV marriage (now over) except the attraction of two competing narcissists. He is one big Zero.

There’s nothing to get. It’s a shame that so many around him exploit and excuse the obvious mental illness.

He's always, always been a narcissistic jerk, but his early music was legit.

Kanye from a pure producer standpoint definitely has talent IMO. Yes alot of his stuff is a total miss for me but I somewhat give him props for taking a chance on on ideas out of left field as I think if he could keep churning out safe hits with catchy hooks if he wanted to.

The College Dropout is considered a masterpiece by critics. But, again, he's a total jerk and always has been and he recorded that album a long time ago now. Still, it's considered an all-time great album, so few people in history can say that.

It was perfectly fine for what it was. But he’s always been overrated when it comes to actually being a genuine musical artist.

All production, zero soul.

Luxury cars in general scream narcissism and "small penis syndrome." Some people can pull them off in a classy way, but in general I really can't stand that whole game of trying to come off as a baller by driving a luxury car, wearing nothing but designer clothes and Armani suits and the like.

The Bay Area used to be nice until the tech industry and the self-entitlement and social ineptness of techies ruined it.

Must've been nice to be in the Bay Area during the hippie era when it was about changing the world and the quest for personal development.

Sure, if you like paying $4000 a month for a studio apartment.

Between that and the constant fires, it’s a dystopia.

The weather isn't great as well. Not what you think of when you think of "California weather".

From what I’ve read, people who use marijuana maintenance to try and stay off alcohol have a higher relapse rate than those who do not in controlled studies. I would wholeheartedly agree with the idea that pot tends to be a far better alternative to booze, it’s just not a great stop drinking medicine.

Because if an individual doesn't examine the underlying reasons for the addiction, this is a short-term band-aid and not a long-term solution.

Yep. Addiction is the problem. Not the substance being abused.
