In that case, why not Grand Rapids, Michigan?

Affordable, lots to do, beer gardens errywhere, great cuisine (if you ever visit, check out the BOB, it's a huge 3 story building with a different cuisine on each floor, it's fantastic.) good music scene, and it still somehow has a bit of that small town sleepy vibe depending on where in the city you go. The parks and shit by the river are nice to chill at, too. It gets hit hard by lake-effect snow, though. So winters can be a little tiring, though not brutally cold compared to other places in the state/nation. Just tons of snow.

Cleveland's a happening place at the moment.

>Very affordable
>Amazing food scene that range from hip food trucks to world-renowned restaurants and the mother fucking West Side Market where you can buy the best quality of anything you can imagine.
>World class museums and parks
>Largest theater complex in US outside of New York
>Thriving music scene including tons of local artists and one of the best Orchestra's in the world.
>Huge influx of millennials in the last few years so there's tons of new people to meet and have fun with.
>There's less people living there than you'd expect so it feels like a big city and a small city at the same time and gives it a very unique vibe
>Has three Major league sports teams and just about every minor league option so if you like sports, there's plenty to watch.
>Tons of ethnic diversity with tight-bonded, yet welcoming communities to outsiders. There's almost always some sort of Italian, Polish, or Slovak festival going on.

Still not without it's faults though. It's one of the strongest job markets for highly trained and highly educated individuals thanks to the bio-medical and aerospace jobs but it can be a real struggle finding a good job without a masters degree in the right field. There's also little buffer zone between the trendy neighborhoods and the blighted neighborhoods so it can be rough at times.

I'm in Nashville for a few days and am wondering what things I can do while here. I have quite a bit of free time and have already thought about going to the Hermitage and Centennial Park.

Anyone here ever travel to Nashville? Are there any attractions that aren't well-known that could be worth visiting? How easy is it to find weed? How's the public transportation?

I'm in Melbourne on a 60 day work visa. I only work for about 30~ of those ays. Looking for some advice on things to do, places to see. Maybe hook up with some people to burn. Whatever it's all good.

I'm 25, white dude from Canada if that matters at all.

Spent my first day off today, just walking around for hours was pretty cool to see the city. Got some nice pictures of some street art and older buildings. How come all the churches ruined their stained glass? It all looks brown and ugly

Look online and find a hunting guide in the Wilderness or something.
Apparently you can find some decent game there.
And you dont sound like youve been hunting.

You can also go diving,however it is winter there.

Hey man, Melbournefag here. Disregard what's been said earlier, there's no wilderness to be hunting in or any diving to be had. Sure there's a few good national parks which are within 1-2 hours drive away, but the weather at the moment is rubbish. Also we're not known for diving spots, Port Phillip bay's too murky for it. Good surfing on either side of the peninsula, but swimming/snorkling... very no.

Melbourne's more the place to be for the bars/cafes/nightlife/arts/hipster-shit. Which side of the city are you on?

Hey /vroom/

I got in an accident a few days ago and the other driver was found to be at fault. I will be receiving compensation from his insurance company, and I need a new vehicle.

What should I get? I am thinking of a safe, durable SUV that can go camping and such but still get decent mileage to work and on the highway.

A co-worker pointed out to my dad that he appeared to have a nail in his rear-right tire. He went to the WalMart Tire Shop to check it out, and the repairman just handed him this, and even he didn't know what it was. It doesn't appear to be a nail, as the edges are too rounded and it would take a huge amount of force to penetrate a tire.

So guys, what is it?

More information: my dad's truck is a gray 2003 Ford F-250. He never noticed any issues with the tire until the co-worker pointed it out. His tire was going flat because of it though, so he was forced to air it up a bit before driving across town and eventually going to the tire shop. Living in Houston, TX, might be irrelevant info but I don't know.

>Its my dream to travel the world. I'll do it by foot if necessary/ possible

After thinking about it and talking to alot of people about it I decided to attempt to back back across at least as far as I can make it in europe.

I have some money saved up. Im using that to gear up and renew my pass ports and stuff and to buy my plane ticket. Still in a planning mode.

I'm 27 and have no idea what to do with my life. But I've known for ever i want to travel.
I got the opportunity to spend 6 months in europe in 2011.
My sister's husband is in the military so i got a super cheap plane ticket around $600 round trip. And stayed with her in Germany for a few weeks. Then we drove around eastern europe and bummed about for a bit with my family (mother, sister and brother in law) and and stayed in hostels. I then wanted to stay longer in the greece than they did so i stayed and met them back in DE latter. I went home with my mom after that back to FL.

Thank you for your time.

PS- If there is not a single car behind me, and you pull out in front of me only to do 10 under the limit, I'm going to ram you off the road and beat you to death the the bloody end of your own arm.

i like to tip a 5 when i get delivery . if im 5-10 miles away from the place and hes only doing one delivery hes using probably about half a galon of gas so 1/2 of that money is going into his tank. nice to give him a 2 dollar tip that isnt.

tbh tho, i did delivery, ive worked for tips. on a 14 dollar hair cut i give a 20 dollar bill on a do the same for 24 dollar delivery i give em 2 twenties and ask for a 10 spot back.

No not really because if you order a $6 item it is just as much effort as a $20 order. I don't know of any places without a ten dollar minimum for delivery, but if you tip one dollar you're a cheap faggot cunt who shouldn't order out if you won't spare another 4 or at least 3 dollars. I've worked in pizza jobs and believe me, everyone knows you're being a dick

Being a delivery boy was the shit back in high school. I didn't work for a Pizza chain, just a medium college town pizza place that delivered in town only, so I made minimum wage plus tips. The owner was cool as shit and so was everyone else I worked with.

I've got a '10 Subaru Forester. Bought it used. Currently at 85.8k.

She's making weird ass noises when I turn hard. Screechy and loud. It doesn't do it every time I turn hard, but more often than not.

Anyone else ever experience this? Power steering issue? Steering column?

Yeah but it's inevitable, like i think using full lock is just proper usage.
Obviously you're a shit driver if you do it a lot but never using it is kinda stupid as, say, you can park in a place in one go using full lock while you could go back and forth forever if you never used just the right steering angle.

I think it's like if the alignment is bent or some bushings are gone you could overload the steering. I don't drive around in a fancy car on full lock like some people

anyway I still never use full lock.

just add the right fluid to power steering.

Subaru guru here. Air in the loop, open the power steering reservoir and look inside, have someone turn the wheel lock to lock, if you see air bubbles there's your problem. Common subaru fault but cheap to fix.

2 most common locations for this, the orings ontop of the power steering pump, on the plastic inlet piece, get crusty and allow air to get sucked in, other location is the spring clamps that hold the hoses to the reservoir itself, they don't seal very well if it ever gets moved. Slap some traditional worm drive hose clamps on there and call it a day.

I'd do both, cheap >$5 fix and shouldn't take more than an hour. Don't bother doing this if you don't see bubbles in the reservoir when doing the test noted above.

Ok, guys. My car is a 98 Cavalier Z24, and I'm driving 500 miles tomorrow. I have bottled water, all the fluids for my car, gps, phone charger, and roadside tools with the knowledge to rebuild the damn thing if I have to. I'm working with a fresh motor with original ignition system (that stumbles every now and then), original tranny (sticky safety switch, can be bypassed if necessary), brand new tires, new battery, alternater, and starter. BUT, I've only driven it about 20 miles at a time in town. I'm not confident in my ride. Is this just pre trip jitters, or should I be concerned. This is also my first road trip in over 4 years.

Tl;dr: 18 year old rebuild car, decent trip, but nervous about the first road trip in years.

I bought a '94 Buick for $2000 and it's cherry. It was an out of state car for all but 2 years of its life (I live in Michigan, so the salt and damp can be a car killer) I'm thinking about applying one of those rubberized undercoats to it to help protect it, but idk how well those work. The usual older car in Michigan is usually rotted the fuck out. I'm talking like, even the rocker panels completely gone, jack points gone, chunks of rust falling off the body panels, etc.

Not a single spot of rust anywhere on the body or frame, it's goddamn immaculate underneath. 138k miles on it which really isn't that much for a 3800 series V6. Only problem I've had with it is a previous owner had a mechanic put a 3rd party fuel pump on the thing, and the mechanic fucked it all up somehow, so I replaced that with a brand new OEM fuel pump that I got for $70 and haven't had a single problem since. Thing even came with brand-new Cooper tires on it, which is nice.

So yeah, generally speaking you're right, there's a dead zone from early 90's to mid 2000's where a majority of American car models are shit. But there's some damn good ones out there if you know where to look.

As for where I found my car, I was looking around on Craigslist, and every single car I found on that website was pure and utter overpriced shit. One guy wanted 3 grand for a rusted out Pontiac Grand Prix that had 218k miles and had been fucking rolled. On the way to check out (oddly enough) another Buick Lesabre of the same year or very close (think it was a '93) I saw the car I currently own in a driveway with a for sale sign. I checked it out, saw it was in fan-fucking-tastic condition and talked to the guy, put $100 down, went to go check out the other Buick anyway 'cause why the fuck not, turns out the other buick had NO brakes. I mean you had to pump the brake pedal for a good long while and then stand on the thing to even get it to slow down. So, went back to the other guy, bought the '94, and lived happily ever after. Except for the fuel pump fiasco. Idk what was wrong with it exactly, something to do with the strainer or something and the fact that it was a cheap a…
