darkhorse23: I hate that shiat. Second grade the teacher sent  me out in the hall for an hour because I couldn't recite I before E except after C. She made fun of me in front of the whole class before she did it. After that, I never gave much of a shiat about school anymore.


Weird.

They're really Jeeps, though, unlike some Jeeps.

Almost all SUVs fall into three categories:

- Big-wheeled minivans  (almost all of them)
- Jeeps  (can actually go off-road)
- Pretend Jeeps  (pretend they can go off-road and make it back on-road again)

After that, it's just a question of how inappropriately fast they can go and how overpriced they are.

Yeah, well, that was in the 50s when teachers could get away with shiat like that I guess. I'll never spell chief wrong ever again though.

CSB: I did some work at Lear Corporation around 1999/2000. They probably made that interior panel. I was there developing electronics coontil my big IT company sales reps screwed those of us consulting there out of overtime pay... but that's another story), and I was shocked at how cheap the cost was on the interiors of vehicles were. Dodge Durango interior (everything but seats and electronics) - $300.

Anyway, Lear supplied a lot of the Mopar line at the time.

I knew a guy named Peter Neilson whose version of the rhyme was:

I before E except after C, or when sounded like A as in Neighbor and Weigh, or in words that are weird like Neilson and Weird

Well it IS after "C".

Just not immediately after.

Somewhere I have a photo of a minivan whose brand name on the front panel, MITSUBISHI, had been artfully rearranged by its owner to spell MISH*TBUS.
