How an Automatic Transmission works

Googled around to figure this out but it was unclear, so, I'll explain.

Engine spins stuff. That's like the job of an engine. You know its spinning super fast cause the pitch goes higher.

Once it goes too high, it makes stuff spin SUPERFAST. This cause (simplifying GREATLY) a set of breaks inside the transmission to stop working (cause SUPERFAST) which then triggers a gear shift.

*dusts hands*

PS its a lot more complex than this but that's simplified.

berenstein vs berenstain - AVGN video

good stuff.

Also, to update an earlier post:

Sadly since that post we lost Anton Yelchin. However, go re-read that old post of mind and remember how old Walter Koenig is. One day we will lose him too, and it is just this kind of memory mix-up that causes these errors in memory.

I've eaten like 30 prunes in the past 24 hours.

I mean I do poop but they are increasingly like dry poops that don't want to come out.

Also, a reminder, this is my personal blog. Don't go wandering around here if you don't want to be surprised. I might post a picture of my bum one day.

Most important blogpost I've ever made on my professional blog tomorrow

Tomorrow morning at 7:30am, I will make the single most important blogpost I've ever made on my professional blog.

It will be so important that if I do it well, I can make a living off this
If I do it poorly, I may never make a living off this.


Reference to earlier blogpost:

This has been cropping up more and more so I thought I'd do a little post here so I don't have to explain the same basic facts over and over.

So what is Mansplaining?

to explain something to someone, typically a man to woman, in a manner regarded as condescending or patronizing."

 "explaining without regard to the fact that the explainee knows more than the explainer, often done by a man to a woman"

While the wiki article says "typically" and "often", the origin of the term is with the context of "always"
The origin section (at the time of writing this blogpost) clearly details this with phrases like

 whereupon the man cut her off and asked if she had "heard about the very important Muybridge book that came out this year" – not considering that it might be (as, in fact, it was) Solnit's book.
implication: he did this because she was a woman

  she did not use the wordmansplaining, but described the phenomenon as "something every woman knows."

So we've confirmed this is something done by a man to a woman

Why is that important? Well consider what happens if this is done by a man to a man

You might not think much, but consider that this can not be something done by a woman because of the word "man".

Either way, this word implies the person committing the act is sexist.

As such, this is either defined, as confirmed, as something done by a man to a woman, or, is something that only Men do.

Frankly the latter is horrifically sexist. It would imply, heavily, that all pedantic men are, in fact, sexist, while not implying the same for pedantic women, or pedantic persons of other gender persuasions. It also goes beyond implying that being pedantic is wrong (check the link at the top of this post for my rebuttal to that) into suggesting that you are sexist just for being a pedant. 

In the words of those in my social circles, fuck that noise.

Countries to compare the USA to

European Union (28 countries)
European Free Trade Association (4, non-eu north/central/west europe)
Central European Free Trade Agreement (7, non-eu balkan)
Monetary Agreement with the EU (4 tiny countries)
United Kingdom (in case this is read post-brexit)

Which I shall call "Main Europe". It has 43 countries. Note that this does not include countries like Russia, Belarus, or Ukraine.

As well as the following countries from outside of Main Europe:

New Zealand
South Korea

all of these countries are, in some way, comparable in terms of:
