Slap-a-hoe Air India....

This copilot refused to make a sammich..


According to Indian media reports which quoted witnesses, the incident occurred after the male pilot allegedly slapped the female pilot.

The woman left the cockpit in tears, but colleagues eventually persuaded her to go back, reports said.

H&M apologizes for showing black child wearing a ‘monkey in the jungle’ sweatshirt
By Lindsey Bever January 8 at 7:45 PM

H&M has apologized for an online advertisement that featured a black boy modeling a sweatshirt reading “Coolest monkey in the jungle.”

The image, which was recently advertised on the Swedish clothing retailer’s website in Britain, ignited an uproar on social media, with critics saying it was tone deaf and filled with racist undertones.

“We understand that many people are upset about the image. We, who work at H&M, can only agree,” H&M said Monday in a statement to The Washington Post. “We are deeply sorry that the picture was taken, and we also regret the actual print. Therefore, we have not only removed the image from our channels, but also the garment from our product offering globally.

Fail on me because I can't find the video, but it looks like a lot of Fails in Dakar 18 this year. The Redbull car hit a bump in the middle of flat desert and yardsaled bad.

But the biggest fail I have seen is from the book of faces

https://www.facebook.com/DAKARCHILE2...7846069192630/

Millions of dollars of race equipment and cars stuck in the bottom of a big ass bowl out in the middle of the dunes.

I could actually forgive almost everyone for that, the promo department, the art geeks, the printer....


But when it got to hanging it in the service department

Lexus service writers have a sense of humor?

Just curious!

Can you even buy a Lexus with a clutch anymore? The closest I can get to a Lexus is the wife's 2006 4 Runner.

Seriously have no clue.

Well we know that even automatic transmissions have clutches in them, but you are saying no third pedal on the floor?

I didn't learn how to drive a car with an automatic until I got married and bought the 1st wife a car.

At least my grand daughters can all drive standard transmission cars. Their Dad and I made sure of that. They do their own oil changes too.

Clutch? Brakes? What's the difference?

That's got to be the per wheel price just to take of the lug nuts and tire to inspect it. My Sierra wanted $350 per corner to do a GM Certified replacement of pads and discs. I laughed at the guy.

I got a similar quote a while back as well.

It made me think about opening a shop, calling it Average Joes and just do basic maintenance. Brake pads, fluid changes, maybe fuel pumps.

Oh, the dealer wants 350 a corner? We can do that for $275. You'd make a killing.
