"This is pitiful. A thousand people freezing their butts off waiting to worship a rat. What a hype. Groundhog Day used to mean something in this town. They used to pull the hog out, and they used to eat it. You're hypocrites, all of you!"

I kind of miss this from my childhood. Grandparents and uncles alike, they'd slip us $5-$10 as if it was a Mafia payoff or something that shouldn't be disclosed to the authorities (my parents).

I imagine kids nowadays will roll their eyes and wonder WTF they are going to do with a $10 bill. 
NEW BEDFORD, MA—Waiting until her daughter and son-in-law were occupied getting drinks in the kitchen following a family dinner at her home Sunday, local grandmother Ellen Sullivan, 72, is said to have palmed her 11-year-old grandson Jason Tucci $10 like she was fixing a heavyweight boxing match.

That's a great idea, kill the two cars that are keeping FCA's CAFE in check. And let's bet the farm on low fuel prices, because this OPEC price war is going to last forever and big energy concerns aren't buying all of the fracking shops for pennies on the dollar, betting that they can crank them back up once OPEC is done with their little civil war. 

Nope.

GM just bet big on electric with the Bolt. Tesla is now working on a $30K car. Ford is not embracing electric yet, instead they are going with tiny engines with turbos and so far they are getting away with it.

And FCA goes and:
1. Axes their two main bread and butter small cars. 
2. Thinks they can make it up by riding the fuel glut and selling Jeeps to everyone.
3. Nailed it with the Hellcat twins but they couldn't figure out how to build them fast enough.
4. Killed the Viper because they couldn't figure out how to put a side curtain airbag on it. 

It's almost as if FCA went "you know, guys? we aren't sucking hard enough. We HAVE to suck harder!"
Fiat Chrysler Automobiles has updated its current business plan, and, well, let's just say that changes are afoot at FCA, but none of them will catch anyone off-guard.The new plan stems from changes in the global marketplace that position some FCA products

This is probably the most damning positive review I'll ever write: if you like maths AND if you don't mind pausing to read Wikipedia 3-4 times per episode, then you'll love this show.

I am not kidding.

It's awesome, but the writers are making a point to not water down the financial stuff.

Very entertaining read, he basically nails the poor car to a wall. He makes great arguments except the whole gas is cheap thing.

I am a repeat customer, this is my second vehicle purchase at this dealership plus they serviced my previous car for over four years. I am absolutely pleased with every single experience I have had with this dealership. As always, it was a no-pressure deal, both Rickie Piland (my salesman) and Danny Islam (my finance manager) made it absolutely clear that they were there to make us happy.

Five stars if you go in the middle of the week. No traffic, very short lines. If you go closer to the end of the season, or worse, on the last weekend of the season, prepare for major gridlock and lines. We have been coming to this park for a few years and it's always a load of fun. That is, except for when we procrastinated and waited until the last weekend a year or two ago. Lesson learned.

Great food, very affordable, fast service and a staff that is incredibly accommodating to families with small children and children with special needs. I have been bringing my (now 12) son that has autism and everyone makes him feel like he OWNS the restaurant. I don't know how it is during weekdays, but weekends there are no issues whatsoever with parking or waiting for a table. Make sure you bring your appetite because the portions are big, especially if you ask for any kind of pasta that comes served on top of a pizza crust. The most popular children's dish seems to be the "make your own" pizza, they'll bring the materials to the table and even a chef's hat.
