@3 Yes, 1.2 million Argentine high school kids, who mix it with coke and sip one for 4 hours. It founds it's way North into the hipster scene via trips to ultra-cheap post-currency collapse Buenos Aires in 2006. Great stuff actually.

"and yet"!!!!!!! lmfao
The advertising tack in which the car is the serene bubble away from the chaos is nothing new. Let's say you were a highly paid developer working downtown. Yes, you'd then be a rich dick who head will roll in the street when the revolution (never) comes. But you'd also be fucking stressed out, all day every day at work. It would be a whole different scene from your strolly foot commute to the land of free Cronuts and who's got the coolest Goodwill sweater. The art and outrage and self expression would be replaced by long days of hassle with a hassle on top and a side of hassle. That's the cost of adding zeros to the end of your paycheck. By the time 6:30 rolls around you'd want to close yourself into an isolation tank too. And hence you'd respond to messing that says you get to do that the second you step out of the elevator into your car.
Seriously I thought you were going to go down the "crows are symbolic of black people" road, which is actually really quite defensible. Recheck the ad for images of raccoon and it might connote homeless-phobia as well.

Jesus fucking Christ #16 really? This thread is dead and gone and still I have to respond. Have you seen Ray Rice's forearms? How can you possibly justify crushing someone with a baseball bat when they've flicked you with a chop stick?
I'll say this: there is a difference between a an obsessive, seducing, escalating abuser and a guy with an anger and impulse control problem. Sometimes they overlap, but in this case I think probably not. Rice should be fired of, but the more important question now is what the fuck did the NFL think a woman getting punched unconscious looked like? A backhand slap from a Humphrey Bogart film? They're not stupid - they goddamn knew exactly what went down. But getting it in the past and continuing to print money is of course the priority. Hopefully some of our smarter legislators light Goodell up like an embarrassed Christmas tree.

Yeah there's way more faults than those listed. Mercaptan is a fucking disaster - worst of them all. Over the top lacto is one everyone hates but no one knows how to identify. And of course there's the flaw known as thinking for the last 6 or 7 years Leonetti Reserve has been anything but a flaming hot muddled boozy mess that will never ever ever come around. That one's called Sammamishitis, a condition where one has more disposable income than taste.
