It took me a bit to realize what was going on at first lol

Just driving around and for 10 minutes you've got 6-8 radars going off from something in front of you. Eventually I realized it was all the damn sensors they're putting in the cars now, and I feel like the radar has been kinda useless since then. That's been 2-3 years now. I end up hearing it all the time and just turn it off. The fuse went out a couple weeks ago and I didn't even bother to get it working again, just pulled it out and shipped it in for a new one. I was thinking about doing that for a while now and that just pushed me into doing it.

I don't think my old one could even do any of that. I don't remember the control knob being a button you could push like the newer ones. I was just watching a video and this guy was talking about the settings you can change with your phone too, and some extra benefits you get. I'll have to look into that a bit more and decide if it's worth spending another $50.

That would be for me (if Indiana legalized it). I don’t think he would like it.

If anyone has ever seen “along came polly” my son almost reminds me of a pre-Jennifer Aniston version of Ben Stiller. Definitely not the thrill-seeker.
