Motto: I'd enjoy the day more if it started later.

I was born and raised in southern California, but my first language was actually Hungarian. I currently reside in eastern Pennsylvania.

comment What are these vehicles called in the United States?
My brother-in-law would probably call the third one a "Euro-van", though I'm never quite certain what he means by that. I'd just call it a minivan.

I challenge you to look at that painting and not yawn. Just saying.

comment What does “ratchet” mean and when was it first used?
That article looks very useful, and thus I want to upvote this answer; but the quote was originally presented without any formatting to indicate that it was a quote, and there was no link to the source, and thus I want to downvote this answer for borderline-plagiarism. :/

comment Adjective that simultaneously means fearless and hopeless?
I think there actually is a word that means exactly this, but I'm not finding it. The closest my brain is getting is "fey", which doesn't actually mean anything even close, at least according to the dictionary, but I've seen it used to describe exactly that "well, since I ain't gonna survive anyway, might as well go out with a bang" attitude.

@DanBron: I vehemently disagree that blgt is required to post an incomplete answer just because you have already posted part of what he wants to say.
