Just about any Kia/Hyundai was available as a manual, usually the 6spd, and Canadians bought them, especially in Quebec

TIL that I can adjust the playback speed of some of the training videos I have to watch for work... they've far less annoying and actually quite amusing at 2x speed, and I still can understand and follow it. I'm glad it doesn't go any faster than 2x speed, that would get dangerously close to BlipVert territory...

Coconut Flower 50% substituted in to pancakes is really good. 

Just 50/50 regular flour and coconut flour? 

Yes. We make them from scratch every now and then and if you substitute half the flower for coconut flower they are really good.

Yeah.  It was OK and I didn't want my time back, or anything, but when I saw ads for the TV series, my first reaction was Really?  What for?!

I comforted myself that anyone rich enough to own an airworthy TBF is also rich enough to have it completely disassembled, rinsed, dried, lubricated, and reassembled.

TIL that Ford will sell you a truck or RV chassis (very similar) in a range of GVWRs and wheelbases with no body at all. I'm not sure how ridiculous it would be trying to adapt an old C-series or N-series cab onto one, given that it's got, you know, everything but the seat already placed for the driver... And of course the interior would be all wrong.

Okay, fine, I'd probably rather just try to modernize the engine/transmission/axles on an old one, but it's still an interesting thing.
