The problem is you don't like people.

I'm perfectly happy spending any amount of time with either my family or my wife's.

About the conspiracy theory video this guy mentioned, about Braga/Goodenough technology being studded by Tesla... Well, I asked her about it and she told me:

"Vou as compras e não vou comprar um carro ;-)"

Translating, she said that was going shopping but was not going to buy a car.

I don't like horrible (bad manners, drunks, ignorant, fake) people.

Your wifes???
I didn't knew you were a mormon.



What uncle Jordan says about polygamy???



Kidding... I knew you refered about the family of your wife... My grammar is not that bad at all.

Anyway, the girl in the picture, the one in the right lower corner, is the prettier one and the youngest one. I presume mormon women see a man with more wives as a greater man, and that's why the man get better looking wives in the later wives, let's say.

King James wanted to marry again and to be allowed he created his own Bible.
Someone wanted a lot of wives and created mormon religion.

The problem with 2 women or more is one or both/all are usually mad about something.

I wonder why any reckless crazy radical feminist didn't demanded yet polygamy for something like 1 women and 4 guys.

More ontopic than the mud house post in the cl*m*t* ch*ng* thread.

I see they persist with the rear wheel steering. It will be interesting to see if they can make that work. The chain drive is anachronistic.

See the November/December 2019 issue of Automotive Engineering from SAE. There are articles on driving a Jaguar I-Pace round trip from Pittsburgh to Detroit. There is an article on solid state battery development. We have a number of Amish and other sects in several states that practice a low tech life style as part of their religious beliefs. They are well regarded here for their construction skills. There is a variety of practices from group to group on what technology is acceptable. A race car builder in Pennsylvania produces high strength buggies to spec that are crash resistant. The buggy builder near me uses Timken roller bearings in the wheels. As one farmer replied, "You'd be surprised how well you can live if you don't buy a new 4 wd truck every year."
