Some Car Advice For The Non-Gearheaded

Cars are kind of unique in one important respect: Most of us have to have one, even if we don’t have a clue how they work. We – most of us – can avoid other things we don’t really understand, like differential equations. But cars are as much a part of modern life as clothes…

Anarchology

The following was submitted by love-him-longtime EPautos regular, Tor Libertarian:  Anarchology is a body of beliefs and related practices created by members of Libertarian author Eric Peters’ Libertarian forum, beginning in 2006 as a successor to his earlier self-administered, self-help system, The Clover Cleanse. Peters’ regular contributors characterized Anarchology as an established religion, a proto-science, a…

Living Beyond Morality As a Nietzschean Anarchist

As a student of the German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche, I share Nietzsche’s and Kierkegaard’s conviction that philosophy should deeply reflect the personal concerns of individual human beings. As a Nietzschean Anarchist, this entails a rejection of traditional values, including the christian religion. As a Nietzschean Anarchist, I declare “emancipation from god” and would encourage you…

When Should I Change My Car’s Oil?

It’s a very common question – but it’s hard to get a straight answer. I’ll try to give you one. It depends. On your particular car. And how you drive it. First, let’s consider the car you’ve got.

Taking Back The “L” Word

In the United States, liberalism took strong root because it had little opposition to its ideals, whereas in Europe liberalism was opposed by many reactionary interests. In a nation of farmers, especially farmers whose workers were mainly slaves, little attention was paid to the economic aspects of liberalism. Thomas Jefferson adopted many of the ideals…

Fitting Song Choices

As I was finishing my workout this morning I kept catching glimpses of the election results on the various distracting televisions in the gym. The talking heads on the tee-vees were gaggling about how this will all play out, how the R’s will work with the D’s, the changes Tom Wolf will bring, etc… As…

What Does Your Car’s Warranty Actually “Cover”?

Most new vehicles come with several warranties. The one most people think of first is the new car “bumper to bumper” (or “basic”) warranty. It covers just about everything except routine maintenance items such as oil and filter changes, brake pads, etc. Routine maintenance is on you. And more important to know, if you fail to…

Vaccines

Many employers require their employees to get the latest flu vaccine. If they don’t comply, they are terminated. I’m not in this situation yet. Plus, I still get sick even when I get these vaccines, so I stopped taking them four years ago, but the Ebola thing has me thinking. Will you get the Ebola…

Vidcast: The Disappearing Passing Lane

Have you noticed? That formerly legal passing zones are systematically being painted over double-yellow? But it’s not just that. Safe, efficient passing as such has been targeted for termination – whether deliberately or inadvertently – via conflicting laws that allow legal passing only by doing so unsafely. Here’s what I mean by that:  If you’ve…
