  1. All this talk about driving, after I pack up here for the day I might just fill up and head for the hills. ๐Ÿ˜
  2. Your choice. I just go with the flow and stay cool as a cucumber, that saves on gas and keeps the tickets away. I haven't had a speeding ticket in decades, and whenever I have been stopped for anything else, the police have just let me go with a warning, since I have such a clean driving record. I use a GPS when out of town. In addition to navigation, it also tells me when there is a change in speed limit coming up, which also helps. Last vehicle I sold off, I didn't even know the cruise control didn't work. This was found out in the inspection process. ๐Ÿ˜
  3. If you can't tell, then it's probably just normal automatic downshifting, to couple the engine speed to the vehicle speed. But not persistent - if it was, you probably would have gone through the windshield a few times already. In other words, this sounds kind of dangerous.
  4. Completely different principle. Diesel engines can't slow down a truck the way a gas engine can slow down a car in low gear, the truck would just run away. So diesel trucks have this additional system on the engine. I haven't noticed cruise control on passenger vehicles that applies braking or downshifting, but I don't use cruise control and haven't paid much attention in recent years either. In the past I have only noticed it control the engine throttle, and by extension, automatic transmission shifting - but not persistent downshifting to slow down the car.
  5. Depending on what browser you use, there are extensions for that. I added something called Emoji Keyboard to Firefox. It allows you to select from several different lists of emojis - no matter what site you are commenting on, unless they go out of their way to restrict that. It includes the โ€ผ๏ธ symbol. I also see the double exclamation โ€ผ๏ธ in the "symbols" category on the emojis list right here on this forum... These aren't custom icons or images, as is, but rather they are newer miscellaneous text characters that all browsers and cell phones apparently adopted some time ago. I can
  6. To save the brakes. That is the only reason. Completely flat land is not as necessary for the survival of the truck and its brakes, so that is fair game for those signs, just to prevent the added noise in those flat land living communities.
  7. Look up "jake brake." It applies to trucks going downhill. Slowing down by using the resistance of the engine saves the actual brakes. This is an engine mode that is switched on and off as needed. Downside? It is LOUD. In this video he switches it in with the little buttons on his dashboard at 3:00 as he starts going downhill. So listen to the sound of the engine before that, and then after - as he takes his foot off the gas pedal, and you will probably recognize the sound.
  8. Nice little movie. Saw that on TV during a sick day in the early 80s. Renewed my interest in certain things at the time. ๐Ÿ˜
  9. That's it, and we had a family made up of very different personalities, ensuring that the get-togethers could go just about any way, usually after some beer. This movie totally reminds me of them.
  10. It's far beyond a random occurrence at this point. ๐Ÿ˜
  11. Fun movie. In a very general non-pedantic sort of way. I am our family historian, and have all of my family's old photos - or most of them that relate to my bloodline. My uncles and aunts just gave me packages of old family photos over the years and knew they could entrust them to me (RIP). This movie in certain ways is like looking through the old photos of the "fun" side of our family, my dad and his brothers - in their younger years. Love it! Certainly in my top 50 or 100 (though I don't keep track of silliness like that). Ricky adds to it.
  12. Exactly. I am probably doing Tarot Card readers a disservice here in the comparison. P.S. The "reactions" are just a symptom of the lazy "cell phone culture".
  13. We had Nike missile bases around the Cleve area too. Now long gone, but remnants in the minds from those who remember. Not sure what is in those locations now, probably parking lots or strip shopping centers. This has come up in conversations I have had, with someone else who had first-hand memories. A good friend of mine, closer to your age, used to play around at a decommissioned missile base in his neighborhood as a kid. He has brought this up several times. I absolutely love these kinds of conversations. Hey, no masks.
  14. You express this perfectly. These "reactions" require a skilled intuitive reading, just like a Tarot Card reader. They are just like "Major Arcana" Tarot Cards, which can have completely different meanings, for different reasons, depending on context. https://www.tarot.com/tarot/cards/major-arcana
