European MPs Targeted by Deepfake Video Calls

"Someone impersonating a spokesman for imprisoned russian opposition figure alexander navalny conducted zoom meetings with european parliament members. The sessions featured. What the guardian and nl times called a deepfake video call purporting to be volley associate leonid volkov which volkov himself said looked pretty convincing. Speculation about responsibility for the incident has focused on vo van and lexus. Two well-known russian prank callers pranksters and such nuisance. Humorous are known. The incident is of course troubling for coming at a time when navalny is imprisoned and on a life threatening hunger strike and it's worth noting that relatively senior political officials were taken in by the scam but to place it in perspective. This is more shock jock stuff than it is a spore of new and devilish lena. Various approach to disinformation technically. It's a cut above the kind of jerk who had called the live news coverage to holler bubba buoy during the slow motion. Chase of oj. Simpson's bronco down the four zero five in los angeles but let's keep it in perspective. The lesson is that video that appears genuine alive call need not be and that some authentication beyond look and feel is necessary but we already knew that it's even become atropine gag insurance commercials where there's a guy video conferencing with his move colleague and so forth. At any rate on balance not very funny and vo von alexis themselves aren't novices. We note. they pranked to name. Just three sir.

Tesla Model S no longer recommended by Consumer Reports

"The second largest purchase for most of us in our lives or vehicles vehicle we drive and you don't want to do is spend a lot of money on a new or used vehicle and be on a first name basis with the mechanic you want that vehicle to work with the most respected survey of reliability each year is the one done by consumer reports and consumer reports takes thorough data from. I think it's more than a million car owners to develop a list of the most reliable brands to the lease reliable of all brands. And the thing is you don't wanna be stopped by the side of the road. You don't wanna have to pay to get your vehicle back on the road. You don't wanna be without it. And this year survey for the most reliable of all vehicle brands has a new number. One and the crazy thing is their rating is so high. Nobody's close and mazda. Mazda's forgotten about japanese brand. You know there might smaller automaker but according to consumer reports crunching of data they are the most reliable and who did they displace year after year. The most reliable brand year in and year out has been lexus. But lexus spell. All the way to third. And i'm telling you it's not close. Mazda eighty-three lexus. A seventy one lexus. Even guy beaten for second spot by toyota. Which is the parent brand of lexus. And there are reasons. Certain brands particularly very expensive. Ones don't perform well in consumer reports reliability ratings and its brands that are doing a lot of model changeovers. A lot of improvements models new features new that when vehicles are redone their reliability usually is pretty crummy and it takes a while to work the bugs out and i think that's why lexus fell to third nearly tied with them. Buick and fourth place honda. V hyundai sixth ram seventh. Subaru eighth portion ninth and died tenth. Now who's selling the most unreliable vehicles far far far away with the score. I don't think i've ever seen this alot. Lincoln got an eight. I mean that's as low of an issue could be and they dropped eleven places from the year before tesla came in second to last or second is the least reliable of all brands with a twenty nine. The funny thing about that. Tesla has the most loyal owners of any vehicle brand sold in the united states but the reliability thing. They got a lot of work to do also at the bottom. Volkswagen third most unreliable many fourth most unreliable and ford v most unreliable so liability is an absolute key decider. And what you buy for other people. It's style or an emotional connection to a vehicle. Prefer a lot of owners or would be owners of vehicle. Being reliable is really really important and look at mazda. They're sitting in the cat bird's seat by far number one.

"To say who has the right. Who has the final say that says atrushi gano a true latina through. Mcconnell is only someone that could speak spanish. You know and i don't think that's right. Man i mean who who who makes up these rules and and should we follow them. I personally think I don't think languages a pre prerequisite for being latino being chicano Being a brown man. What do you guys think well. That's a good topic to jump into because it's so true it's like the level of your of the your command of the spanish language this should not dictate whether or not near brown right so the big question is does speaking spanish. Make you any more brown than the next person. So i grew up speaking spanish. That was my first language you know and then but the other thing is also like with my father you know. I'm not saying that he's right or you know but It's just the way that it was that he's like Kind of he was one of those people that would hate it when a dark person a didn't speak spanish it and he's like i said i will not pollyanna frontier needs to buy new like it. Would it would. It would hurt them. You know like like lexus. Like one time we went to the beach and then after that that there was this this like these chillers. The man talking In english and everything like that. My dad's like like talking smack about him just because he was talking in english you. That was kind of weird like that. You know as it needs needs to get a He said he needs to get the house by like like. I don't know why you would bother him. Her whatever and then the man just to let my dad know that he didn't spanish. He's all like all a let or something like that. You know like the guy told him not even confrontational sort of put them in check in a night. Yeah exactly and so on. My dad's like not need a colonoscopy de niro and so it kinda like silence my dad now you know. Let let like like he. Did you know it was like that was my experience and i mean i'm not a like even when we're at at at the table like my dad. He didn't like me talking to my my siblings and sp in english in by noel. And it's like he always made us talk in in spanish like everything so that was my my experience I mean like. I said it. That's not how i feel. I mean it's like Because as i start as i started speaking more more english my spanish started You know I started seeing things wrong and stuff like that. You know so. Like so. Even when i went to mexico and i saw some of my cousins and they were like i'll say like a word like spanish or i'd say it wrong and then they'd they'd make fun of me. You know like a skit way. I'll go to assist you. Know he you know yes but you're trying to each other on. Who's the better spanish speaker. That's that's what that's what this episodes about. It's like why do we power trip over that stuff. Yeah man you know. That is a really good question. What what is this about. Power trip know or authenticating. You know you know and why you know why. Why is language such a important part of who we are. you know. Like like maya bringing is little bit different My mother is he. Gonna you know she was born in he comb. My father is gone. He was born in texas. But you know but all our families are from different. Parts of michael and i was born on the border town. You know on a border town so we spoke spanish. We can all speak english but we spoke spanish. That's was the star norm. You know especially right. They're living literally on la la frontera in this five miles away from the fence. And i remember it was like a hard core as a little child by man owes a hard corden nasa student. You know like little four year old five year old you know like totally proud of being brown and everything you know and and only wanting to speak spanish men you know and And because my mind english was such an ugly language you know such a detached language. You know there is no cutting no love in there. you know. And it wasn't until. I went to first grade at the americanization process began. I didn't know it at that time. But that's basically what it is you know. The american is ancient process of denying us. The our our right to speaks spanish.

Bill Gates looks back at ‘The Road Ahead’ after 25 years and some hit-and-miss tech predictions

"A look back at what Bill gates got right and got wrong in his book road ahead. This is based on a bill gates blog. Post talking about that stuff. And it's interesting because i had kinda forgotten this but back in nineteen ninety-five when this book was written. He was talking about What do you call digital agents. Which today we call digital assistance. Cortana syria lexus. Google assistant Was pretty forward looking. You know although he says These things are not as sophisticated as envisioned that they would you know twenty five years ago which is kind of interesting but you know what he doesn't say and i find i find this to be somewhat fastening. This book was really controversial Because when it came out it barely mentioned the internet. You know And i mean a month after this came out microsoft its giant pivot where they embraced the internet and You know announced internet explorer and a and they fully embrace the web and he actually came out with a second edition of the book that added the word internet about one hundred and fifty times just to make wa So year later almost a year later they came out with a revised version of the book. but yeah. I mean back. Then you know microsoft well you know. Proprietor proprietary software company there still thinking very proprietary so he saw the need for networks obviously and worldwide global. And all that. But i'm sure he envisioned microsoft being a gatekeeper. That thing you know at the time So that was kind of but yeah. I remember when this came out. It kind of solidified my distaste for these kinds of books. You know i. I was reading the wikipedia entry. But they're like it coulda reception is being very tepid mike. That's a good word for how this book was. Because he used a lot of management jargon and like big ideas. And i'm like yeah but tell us what you actually think about. What's going to happen next because you actually have done. A lot of comdex presentations used to tell us stuff all the terrain and it used to be great. It used to be amazing. You'd be like wow. Is that really the future. And then you read this and you're like wait. What happened between that and the book right. I mean look i. It's anyone who knows anything about bill. Gates it probably has a little bit of a problem with the tech visionary thing but i mean he did foresee the digital transformation stuff that we're that's happening today. He saw video on demand very early. They had a project tiger that was seeking to basically make net flicks back in the nineties He saw pocket computers of course Many years before we have iphones and androids and things like that. So i mean he you know but he'd been spot on the internet aware then he you. You did mention this but he is now going to write another book Which is called how to avoid climate disaster where he's talking about climate change and Yeah this this could be given what he does now with the gates foundation. I think a little more sweeping and maybe more interesting. We'll definitely be more sobering in it. Just yeah yes if we can turn off all those data centers. We wouldn't have. I told you the internet was bad. I don't know why did pay attention in one thousand nine didn't mention it back losing it. That's it's twenty five years. it's amazing. It was twenty five years ago. Nathan myhrvold Was one of his collaborators on the book which is interesting given that he went onto intellectual ventures. Yeah i still have the contents of it on my nass somewhere i of the day. Yeah don't know if it would install these days. It's probably a what they built. Probably some base thing also we have in in. This is interesting microsoft and joins apple and amazon. In saying hey so so in this court case with google. We'd really like it if you didn't share all of our data with jewel 'cause that wouldn't be great also. At and t. Comcast duck duck go oracle sonos and t mobile. Wow i just find this interesting. Because the all of these Big tech Internet anti-trust cases are all based on this notion of the gatekeeper. Right apple is the gatekeeper. I s amazon is the gatekeeper to online shopping. Google is the gatekeeper basically to the internet or the web in the idea. There is that you're searching for things. And they those companies control the search. They see what you're searching for and they can see what's popular. They can offer up their own stuff. Instead you know amazon. Does that with amazon basic stuff. They're like oh look. Batteries are selling great. Let's make batteries. Find the cheapest chinese batteries and get slap a log autumn. And we'll set. We're under price. Them will sell a million of. It's worked out pretty great right so basically no one goal to do this to us through the evidence for providing in this case the idea being that google's lawyers will see the evidence. Go back to google and say hey Apples working on this thing that you might want to know about ever and they would like the stuff to be marked as confidential not in not be something that google's lawyers could bring back to google so it'll be in gogol has said We would never do that. What do you mean. Of course not having with alaska do better say this. If it did happen. I mean we would disclose that. That'd be

Learning How to Lead with Ryan Hawk

"Ryan hawk on dose of leadership man. I'm excited that you're here. Welcome the show my friend. I appreciate it. Thanks for having me rich You know we've been connected the lincoln and obviously had known about your show for a long time so similar past but always wanted to have you on this show talked. Nfl leadership junkie so man. I'm glad you're here. Like i said thanks for having me it I was read about. Your story is pretty wild especially with everything. Going on as a pilot and september eleventh man. I was I was like wow. This is going to be interesting. Yeah no it's it's it's been a journey but it so i'm curious i i would bet that are past. They're similar in the sense. That if i understand correctly football was kind your dream as you were growing up and then going through college and then you played somewhat professionally as well right and then. How did that in. I don't quite know the story how that ended. Why did the football come to an end. Eventually they tell you you're not gonna Like most guys they re. The sport retires you tire from. And so i played after college. I played for a few years in the arena. Football league briefly went up to canada. And cfl you know handful of workouts in the nfl and then they they say Yeah you're you're you're okay. But not good enough to To make it to the upper echelon of the sport and the nfl where you can actually earn a living and the really gripe played. It's essentially like playing minor league baseball right. You do you do it for the opportunity to keep playing into potentially catch. Someone's eye so that you could maybe have the story like kurt warner right. Kerr played in the arena. League gets gets a workout. He impresses he gets a job. The starter gets hurt and all the rest is history is now in the hall of fame. So i think that's why you do it you you and that's why i did it for a few years and I love those great experience. I mean you. Don't you can only do that when you're still in the prime of your athletic life and and so i'm glad i did it even though it delayed a little bit of my professional career but I i definitely don't regret. Yeah with so when you found it came to an end was it. Was it something you kind of always knew is going to happen you prepared for you said you know what i'm going to play ride this out as long as i can and then i'm going to start some sort of professional career and business or something that always in the back of your mind or was it like with me. I always thought. I was going to be a pilot and west when nine eleven happened and i got thrust in the corporate arena was a little bit of panic. Initially but How was it for you. Well i you know. I think kids. Are i talk with high school and college kids now. They're just so much smarter and better intentions than i did. When i was in college I didn't even really think about not playing football right And and so That could you know. I had friends who were really good about Building relationships creating connections setting themselves up for for life after college. I just wasn't one of those people. I i was immature like a lot of twenty two year olds and so i didn't have any thought of not playing I just happened to get really lucky. I am a family friend. Decided to take a chance on me and hire me into a sales job and And then just said hey just kind of use the same type of work ethic you learn as a player but now do this year for this job and if you do I have a hunch that things will go well. his name's rex. Goswell still a great friend to this day and just i'm just lucky. I had a person who is willing to take a shot. And then i as i try to do. I like to prove people right When they believe in fortunately it kind of my career went from there man. What a blessing to have that person kind of in your corner to kind of steer you. They saw something in you right. Which i think is an obligation of all this leaders right. Great leaders kinda see something that we don't even seen ourselves ripe and they help extract that out of you. That's great and then as i suppose you started working and that's when it was a lexus nexus nexus right and so you're in this sales position in this professional role like with me that's when it became. I started getting these moments of clarity of like. Oh where i came from. In my case it was the marine corps and flying planes in my mindset was limited. When i first started in thinking all i know how to do sleigh airplanes and but then as i got into the corporate arena i started saying oh i did learn a lot more than just flying airplanes. I'm assuming the probably same happen you with your football experience in in the great coaches and mentors you surrounded yourself around most of your life. I learned i learned how to develop a work ethic. I learned resilience. I learned preparation. I learned being coach -able. I learned how to collaborate with others. i got to college. I was on a much more diverse team people from wide variety of backgrounds. And i played a in the arena league down in birmingham so completely different from where. I'm from here in ohio and so i would say i think i learned about people. I learned a lot about myself. Learn about how to work. I learned how to do extra. I learned all that from my coaches from playing sports. And so i. I just tried to take that into the professional world and i liked the profession of selling because the people who were landing at the top of the stack rankings. The people who were making the most money the people who are getting promoted. They were the ones who were working the hardest. I don't have any experience. But i do think i could work And so i i. I was willing and still. I'm willing to to to work really hard at it. And then Eventually led to me. You know having some success in doing well exceeding the goals accompany set for me and then that led to promotions and more opportunities. And so i think that's that i direct all of that back to a combination of two things. One my family. My parents my brothers as well as My coaches who really taught me how to out of work once. I want for my eighth grade to ninth grade year.

You know it's Kinda hidden under the covers you know because of this role he can do X. because a y you can do z. kind of thing and was making the argument for me. And, that's that's why you as talent trying to get hired is you have to have a conversation with the hiring manager. It's that simple if you're going through the HR department to get a job. It's it's like you going into fight with your hands tied behind your back as not a fair fight by any means. So. I said all that to say. What can you do if your talent to get hired as you can put your best foot forward? How do you do that? It's not with the resume. You send him a resume its going into an applicant tracking system. I'd say nine out of ten times. If not more, it's almost guarantee in the ATS is Ben Tuned to the point where It's told give me the top three or four candidates for this position. and. If there's any reason to eliminate you say a mommy gap. You. Raisin a kid or apparent gap taking care of a parental unit Keva lemonade yourself. You WanNa, send your linked profile your linked in profile. Your chance to say, Hey, here's what I can do. Here's what I've done. Here's why I'm the best person for that position. and. If you hiring manager look, you need somebody that can hit the ground running right? Hr was put all these lofty ideals into the job requisition. You know we'd like it. If you had a Nobel peace prize would like it. If he had six PhD's, we'd like it if Yada Yada. Yada. In the hiring managers like look I promise the company that might division, my department, my group would produce X. and we're nowhere near there because we're down a man or two or three. Me and being a species not sex. And so. Hiring managers you need to reach out so I can put you in touch with talent. That makes sense for what you're trying to accomplish says making some sense.

"It seems like everybody is getting on the Lexi Slash Car bandwagon because I. came across two more articles today that I just wanted to share with you The first one is with regards to Toyota and Toyota says that for their twenty twenty one models and some of their twenty twenty models, they are including the option for consumers to be able to use Amazon Lexi. Alias say in their cars additionally, there's another article that came out that says that the a Lexus LX five seventy, the twenty, twenty, one model that goes on sale in Canada. Also is going to be able to be used with Lexi on board. So what does this say? It says that well, Everybody's getting on the bandwagon. So to speak, and if you are interested in voice technology chances are you are if you're listening to this flash briefing? And you are in the market for a new car. More likely than not. Now, if you're looking at a newer vehicle, you're going to have an option of having a voice assistant built in which I think is pretty cool. So if the particular system is important to you LEXI versus Google Assistant, then obviously have a look at those options and. I think it's great for everybody GonNa make driving a little more safe when we can do by voice as opposed to. Trying to fumble their phones. that.

Scrabble app faces backlash from traditionalists as board game goes online

"Today's topic is scrabble. US Avid. Word nerds have been using the a scrabble APP for many years now it's a great way to fill the time and challenge your mind as you deal with the stress of corona virus and zoom calls. My Mom who's eighty five years old with an incredible mind for words plays every day. Unfortunately despite America's urgent need for things to pass the time right now, the folks Hasbro decided to kill ea scrabble. For most people. It stopped working on June sixth. Almost five hundred people have commented on my blog post about the shutdown and boyer they, upset. In the place of EA scrabble, you can try the new APP scrabble go created by scope. If, you can imagine they've game fide scrabble. scrabble go includes throbbing graphics in Garish Orange, Yellow and purple. It constantly bugs you to get your facebook friends to play. You could earn chestful of virtual prizes and customize your scrabble tiles. It includes duels, tournaments and timed contests that everyday scrabble players would have no interest in. After ten you get to watch pure. Add for other silly games more suitable for children. I did my best to give scrabble go a fair chance, but even if you can get past the distracting graphics lighting up like a Vegas Casino, there are problems. I cost four dollars ninety nine cents a month to get rid of the ADS and get features that used to be free like seeing the best move that you missed. Sixty dollars a year is pretty steep. Second. If you like to play the machine, you'll be disappointed. You Play Zoe an animated Avatar with an unnaturally large head. WHO's a pretty lame scrabble player? Many players, soliciting you to play, are actually bites. WHO also tend to be terrible? Third the game includes boosts which allow people to cheat. Once you accumulate enough gems. You can swap out your tiles anytime when any move which makes it way too easy. The only escape is a deeply buried classic mode. Finally. Many women players tell me that men are hitting on them using scrabble. Go as a dating site. My evaluation despite the name scrabble go isn't even good enough to use when sitting in the bathroom. Don't despair though there are alternatives. If you like to play the computer, the best choice is word master pro. This elegant APP created by developer and Brazil has a computer that plays at lightning speed, and can be set to a high challenge level, and to avoid strange words. You'd never spot outside a scrabble dictionary. It's only three ninety nine a one time purchase. There are scrabble variants like Lexus and works with friends, but classic scrabble players will object since they don't duplicate the traditional scrabble layout. If you want a timed game, go to I. S C Dot Aro, the Internet scrabble club. It's a rush, but not everyone loves the stress of a countdown timer.

Here's like four years probably since I've got pulled over then got pulled over last night for allegedly doing eighty one to sixty five car the Bill in shorts. I'm trying to do the adventure. Hell acceptance car very recently. That'd be the second to last entry this lesson credence. Basic of maybe it's this joint thing. Let's talk about the engine the engineering behind this thing. Like, why is it? So good. So in the nineteen eighties. Lexus decided to throw a ton of money in a ton of resources and building. Literally, the best investment vehicle in the world. And they put I what I believe. In was I think it was over billion dollars at the time, which was the most money ever invested into a new vehicle. They really wanted to establish themselves in the marketplace with something spectacular. They had you know, all these crazy benchmarks and. They had their their production ethos with quality and how the factories of work and stuff that was really enviable five the Americans. And they pretty much just just came out swinging. And you know, my my father had one of these things in ninety two when it was new, and it was extraordinarily. I mean there was you know, nothing like it on the road. It's kind of hard to picture at the moment. But like even something as simple as like the center stack. We're like these gauges which I think are like five or six and on LED's, but it sort of back Backley ghosted almost invisible gauge cluster like that was super future shaded nineteen thousand nine hundred and the you may not know it now from this old one fund when these things were brand new they were they were basically silent. There was no engine noise. There was no wind noise. There was no road noise. It was silent. Almost the way that like was tesla silent was this the campaign with the champagne champagne, and they had you know for. Mostly the champagne glass pyramid on the trunk and those had the car on the hood, and the cardis brand, and you have nothing fell over Klein Sino took it up to one hundred and forty miles an hour. Yeah. Because part of what makes his engine so good is that some of the Technic read is offer competing like years ago. But basically like they took some of the research they had done on building IndyCar engines using I think more silica in the aluminum, and it makes when it heats up it's like a little bit slicker than engine with less silica. So that's part of why it's such a smooth engine just less friction if there's fiction, there's less we're on the rings and all those kinds of things, and it's probably why, you know, the engine's never been open, and we're not bring a ton of oil, you know, with blow by what? Yeah. Also, this being the sort of pinnacle of Toyota overbuilt nece, you think about the two JC was being built at basement to save time as this. Durability was was paramount to mean, even a camera of this period is likely to still be on the road. Yeah. Less knows Japanese cars like late eighties into early ninety.

And they do on the dirt section where they drove it and Anton dirt. So I don't know maybe rally out Washington CD. Yeah. Oh, yeah. I guess it probably is third. It's meant Washington hill-climb. Yeah. That's not good for bushings. If you if you didn't bushings and shocks and drove in Florida where the roads are it would probably be good for several hundred thousand one. Remember what I voting which was from Florida. Yeah. When I bought it. There was spreaders in the coils. So the suspension L all LS four hundred they all look like the Hasas cut of Sagnol time, and that's actually normal which sort of one of my least favorite things, but I don't know if because the springs and shocks completely dead or because the guy before me wanted to change how looks but he actually put spreaders in the coils which held the coil spring open and raise the ride height like three inches. But like you you had like half a shock. Rear end drive, like just dry. Good super weird. Rod power tour. Oh, yeah. The two guys from Lexus. These two Lexus. Engineers says excellent Alexis logbook is to Lexus engineers did a bunch of maintenance on the car. I think they've put a new distinct new distributor alternator. I think they. Did a of service. But then they took it on the haw power toward the higher up our stickers. There are some great injuries in this rest. Stop advice. Just because the bathroom is very quiet. It doesn't mean you're alone. I met comedy. I think this is one that got the parents met there. I think their names were Matt actually that commented in the stall walls are low for glory whole situation being in the measure my commented what with another guy. And then there was another force. We ain't gonna find out. Neither. Minutes after the rest of they get pulled over for eighty four in an eighties on the cop.

"It's still like reasonably quiet. Yup. I mean window seals aren't great, and that's partially because they're old and partially because this car has real shanty peeling like Florida tins on it. And I think that the bad tint is worse than the the window seals. But frankly, I don't care. I mean, we're having a conversation normal volume, and it hit the moves the air around the car will I think they had some of the design language was meant to do that like it has a little fins right by the headlights. You know, I was like it's been for aero and channel air around the car. I totally wrong. To be making that up maybe that up. But it's a weird thing to see on a car. It's like why would it be there? You know, let's see things that work climate control works power sunroof windows doors. Locked small work power seat belt adjusters work, the sixties changer. That's in the second. Book box words tape deck. Only plays out of one side for some reason. True, but the FM AM FM radio CD player work the power attend does not really work. No. But it does still get he thinks it's just not up here. But after how many warnings from car wash operators that it was going to like get broken off in one hundred thousand miles and hasn't gone hasn't moved. Well, as durable all the windows work steering steering is reasonably tight, it is increasingly I my phone before didn't. The ride is pretty good. Although the Harsha does sack we have three people in it with in a law just came here. Like, you know, it definitely take more. She set as tools we want extra fluid from just in case because there's eating a third of a court every intermodal something like that. Yeah. So it doesn't really burn oil in the sense that like no it doesn't verbally because like the rings aren't bad like the valves aren't bad like it's not oil is not going into the combustion chamber and being bird. However oil is being leaked from a few different places. One of which I think is the valve covers which leaks onto the headers. And then it goes and that it smells like oil. It's a for for the life of his car with us gone with eating this much oil per this, many miles. Hey must be burning. And then last night, we're stopping the side of highway. We knows there's very light smoker. Coming out the front of the car headlights, smells like oil, and that's bad figured out. Although oil we're losing is not burning out the call out the engine. It's purring on the. Yes, it's from the exhaust with the outside of. Of being recycled before it goes the atmosphere. Yes. So you basically you basically have to add a half a quart of oil every other gas. Which is not that it's bad company miles around it. It's really not add like you could. Take off valve covers like it's nothing from three three places like just just three right? The left valve cover the right valve guy. And three year main seal, that's the bad the vast bad one. But that's the problem was not. Like, I'm usually dumb enough with this kind of stuff to know that I don't know better. Like, I'm usually tell me everything it needs. Now, you know what I mean? And so when they did the gearbox. They were like there's some areas they they told me that there were some areas that we could save costs. They didn't really specify what those areas work one of them as fucking turns out was by not replacing the rear main seal when you put the gearbox back on by creams. Ing b old shitty. Already leaking rear main seal because that's the hardest field whereas eighteen dollars while the thing was already out that could have been totally not a problem..

"Hundred ninety seven thousand miles on it. I am the six that owner of the vehicle, and I don't know what all the previous owners did. But most of them treated it like garbage. Yes.

Do not ever send your friend a link to something dumb and cheap on his birthday unless you're prepared for him to buy. Yes, rob Ferretti sent me the link this car on my birthday.

That's my fiance shoes, my girlfriend at the time like Hannah, we take a trip to Florida while you have to go to Florida because I bought a car expected to be terrible. You have to drive it five days home. He for nineteen hundred bucks, and you did drive. It all across the United States home. I did. And then you when you got here, and then it needs some stuff in the many things because this list of repairs is way too short. No. That's just that's I I think I don't even remember writing that that was probably just the first repair not up to date. That's probably correct us. Just the first repair. Before you picked it up and Dr car five hundred power steering, rack and poem eighty tires. Yeah. For your pads and labor who change the Dow's the first service. I then I mean, it's had many many services. The thing is the last owner that had it before me really treated badly. Like one of the owners put like seven hundred thousand miles on it like that guy probably treated really, well, but the guy after him or maybe even two guys after him was like how little money can I spend and still have this thing like wind around town. Yeah. So like the steering was like threes, e sloppy and sketchy and like the suspension was like falling apart. Like, there was no pushing laughed there was like all this crate, all this crazy shit. Like, yes, the engine is like never been opened original. Like, it's like sealed Belykh a bunch of the gearbox was like kinda like missing it wasn't missing shifts. Like, it it that thing that is doing that a lot worse you come off throttle. It shimmy is a little bit because Ronald aggressively does. Yeah. But like it was also like it would go to fourth gear. But then it wouldn't go back down until you like came to a stop like, it would stay worth gear. So it wouldn't like kick down. So I eventually had our friend..
