    And this is why we used to make cars out of STEEL instead of FIBERGLASS! Sure, fiberglass is a lot lighter in weight and hence a hell of a lot better for gas mileage. But you hit anything at more than 20 mph and the entire body explodes off the fucking thing, and now you’re spending more to repair the car than it’s worth because you need a entire front end, read end, or side panel. They can’t just take the damaged section off, beat it out with a hammer, sand it, and repaint it.

    Everything is made with the idea of it being easier to replace than to maintain, aka planned obsolescence. Thanks, capitalism

    becausedragonage

    You guys are obscenely, dangerously wrong. 

    It’s not planned obsolescence, its physics.

    Modern cars crumple to absorb and distribute the forces of impact in an accident in an effort to protect the occupants. When cars didn’t have those crumple zones, the occupants, being the soft, squishy things they were, took those forces and were mangled or killed in horrible ways. Also, those older cars took hidden damage that often went unnoticed and made them very dangerous to drive. IT’s really easy to hide a twisted frame when all you need to do to make the car look okay is a bit of sanding and paint.

    I recently watched a TV show where a small sedan was run over by the trailer of an eighteen-wheeler. Run. Over. They had to unwrap the crumpled ball of a car from the undercarriage of that trailer. Guess what? The driver suffered only minor injuries because the car collapsed in exactly the way it was designed to so that she, in the very strong frame surrounding the passenger compartment, was protected. 

    And no, don’t thank capitalism for these modern cars. Thank Ralph Nader and countless other safety activists who worked tirelessly to make car manufacturers accountable for the safety of the people who drove their cars.

    I’m an estimator for a major insurance company which means I spend all day, every day, around wrecked cars. I’ve been to the NHTSA, I’ve attended a crash test. I have actually seen and put hands on both the vehicles in the .gif above. The idea that old cars are somehow built better or are “tanks” or whatever is not only wrong, it’s dangerous. New cars are built to “crunch” so you don’t have to.

    This is the 59 Bel Aire post crash - notice that the area where the driver sits is significantly compromised. The person driving this car would have died in this 35mph crash.

    This is the Malibu - crunched? Yes! But the area where the driver sits is not crushed.

    I have seen modern cars keep people alive in horrifying accidents. Cars are objectively better and safer in every single way than they were 10, 20, 30 years ago. Anyone who tells you otherwise is wrong. Period.

    Also modern passenger cars are definitely not made of fiberglass. What even?

    so I fucked up. and i’m paying the price right now. I lied about something I shouldn’t have lied about. I don’t even know why I lied. there was no reason to. I have been honest about more difficult things in the past. I can’t even come up with a good excuse. I just panicked. I’ve apologized, but that’s all I can do. I’ve said how sorry I am. how much it hurts to have hurt him. I fucked up. and i’ve been feeling sick for the past two days. I deserve it, I guess. being scum means you feel like scum. well. here I am. feeling like scum. I hate lying. I can’t believe that I lied about something so stupid. FUCK. I hate myself sometimes. no joke.

    okay so been going through it lately. this quarantine can fucking suck it. I had a job. I had income. I had sanity. quarantine fucked with the theatre world so hard. how can a job that requires people to congregate work during a pandemic? it can’t. so now i’m fucking stuck looking for another job. again.  but of course, when I don’t work I tend to get depressed. starting to learn that. the hard way. it’s fucking with my relationship with my s/o. he’s been working so hard to build a future and I haven’t been doing shit. it’s true. since lockdown I’ve used it as an excuse to not do anything. why? because it’s easy. I hate that about myself. I hate that I fall into this fucked up pattern.  so I applied to like 5 jobs tonight and tomorrow I’m going to contact my perspective employer and see what the deal is... for like the 4th time. hopefully something comes out from it. I need to work.  time to get my shit back together. get out of the quarantine funk. 

    haven’t been on tumblr in so long, but thought I’d use this as a journal of sorts. during quarantine i’ve learned a lot. not just about myself, but about my friends and family as well. 

    learned that not all of my friends are as good a person as they say and that I need to look deep within and truly decide if that is a friendship I want to carry with me for the rest of my life. I think i’ve come to the conclusion, though. 

    life was so different just a few weeks ago. there was a plan and a goal. now my only goal is to get up before noon and do some type of physical movement throughout the day. I am learning a new skill, however. learning to do QA stuff. it’s easy and actually kind of fun when I get in the groove of things, not gonna lie. I’ve been baking a lot, too. I want to master bread. I have the ingredients, I just have to do it. 

    but that seems to be the issue these days, right? you want to do something, but since we have nothing but time we just put it off until the next day. then the next. then the next. i’ve had the tab for a brioche bread recipe open on my laptop for about a week now. I just haven’t done it. there’s no good reason. just pure procrastination. 

    living with my parents during this has been rough. I’m lucky I have my s/o with me to keep me sane. he’s truly an angel. such a beautiful person, both inside and out. like everyone else, he has his days where he’s less than amazing. being in the same location with the same people has its effects. and we’ve all been feeling them. everyone has been so snippy and snarky. 

    I don’t ever remember feeling this type of annoyed in general, but that’s quarantine, right? 

    part of me is a little scared to go back to the way things used to be, though. and it’s not a real fear. it’s laziness. and apathy. but we all need to work and live our lives I guess. 

    for now, I’m going to finish this wine. 

    I don’t even really go on here anymore, but I need to get some things off my chest and couldn’t really think of anywhere else to do it.

    My birthday was this past weekend (yay) but of course something went wrong. Something always goes wrong. Either I get too sensitive or jealous or whatever. I have to be able to let that go. Just because one bad thing happened, doesn’t mean that the whole night had to be ruined. But now, when i look back, the bad moment is all I can remember. How do i get past that?

    (On a completely different topic) I’ve come to the conclusion that I can’t make everyone happy. Friendships are two way streets. If someone is looking for a reason to not be close and not be friends, let them find it because what’s the point of fighting for a friendship that they clearly don’t want to be a part of.

    It hurts but I’ve come to terms with it.
