That's like asking what bread is for.

You can make sandwiches with it, you can toast it and serve it with caviar, you can spread hummus on it, you can use it to mechanically isolate sensitive instruments from shock and vibration, you can name rock bands after it, you can use it to gather up tiny glass fragments from irregularly-textured surfaces, you can dip it in soup, you can attract ducks with it, you can use it as a substitute for rice in Moroccan stews and curries, you can fight wars with it (source), you can make bread pudding out of it, and in a pinch you can moisten it for use as an expedient binding agent.

In other words, bread is just something that most normal people tend to ensure that they have a regular supply of on-hand at all times. I was running low on 3 foot lengths of aluminum bar stock, so I bought another piece.

Son of a bitch! I hate when you get ready for an event... that isn't until TOMORROW night... All dressed up and nowhere to go. I now have plans reversed for tonight and tomorrow, so I have to find something to do now, since both are now fucked.

My friend who has always made fun of my Miata as being gay, recently sold his LS-1 Camaro to buy a brand new Chevy Sonic. Now he no longer makes fun of my car. This could be due to the fact that I text him stuff to **** him off all day long, like...
"If you put SS emblems on a Chevy Sonic, does that make it Super Sonic?"
or
"If you put a subwoofer in the trunk, would that make it SubSonic?"

Anybody have experience with Acura TSX? As in ownership, or enough driving to form a genuine, informative opinion.

We've had one since '05, my wife's car, bought new. 85K miles, never any trouble except 1 time when it failed as an off-road vehicle. Still very solid, returns about 25mpg around town, 30ish highway at 80. Surprisingly good handling for medium-cheap family car. I would buy another without hesitation, but the current ones are kinda fugly.

That seems to be the general consensus. I was first considering the RL, but as few miles as I will put on this car, I see no point on spending that much more for options I don't need, and for a car that I think isn't as good looking as the TSX. My Miata just doesn't cut it for daily driving anymore. Not that it ever really did in the first place.

Looks delicious, but you did say "tripe". "Tripe" in Pennsylvania Dutch Country is known as "pig stomach". It is amazingly deliciousand is right up there with Pork and Sauerkraut, or Liver and Onions.
