What's your best and worst automobile purchase?
My current car - a Yaris. The car before this one - a Scion (not because it was a bad car, but I let the salesman talk me into buying it as a used car instead of getting the car model I have now). - Friar Will
Best: my first new car, 1991 Honda Civic. Worst: 1988 Merkur Scorpio that replaced said Honda when it was stolen. - Cult Hero from iPhone
Best my current Buick Enclave Worst Mercury mini van which combined bad function with a lease that was worst possible customer experience - WarLord
Best: Buick Rendezvous; Worst: Plymouth Horizon - Kevin Johnson
In the early 90's i bought a Hyundai Excel. a small hatchback. the transmission would fail, and get stuck in 1st. I would have turn the car off to fix. I wanted a reboot button on the dash. Fortunately I now have a 2004 Toyota Highlander (bought it new) that has a few good years left in it. It is like the opposite of that Hyundai. - Mike Nencetti
Best was the '92 Jetta we got in 2000. Worst was the MINI we got in '02. Jetta got stolen which is why we got the MINI. - Anika
Worst was a 1992 Plymouth Sundance manual tranny. Best was a 1989 a Dodge Colt Mitsubishi clone manual tranny. Loved that car maybe because it was my first car. - Joe
Best- 2000 Honda Accord (it has over 300k and is still running). Worst- 1982 Volvo sedan (man, I loved that boxy piece of shit, but it was too expensive to keep fixing it). - Jenny H. from Android
aw...I almost named my 1979 Volvo 240 (DL, I think?) wagon as my best car purchase ever! I loved my Volvo. - Cult Hero
:) - Jenny H. from Android
Best purchase: My ~2000 Ford Focus. It had like 30,000 miles on it, and had only ever been driven around town by an elderly lady. I got it in 2004 or 2005 for ~$8,000. Sadly, I totalled it about a year later, but I got $6-7,000 from the insurance company for it. - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
Worst purchase (by proxy): When I bought the replacement for that Focus (which happened to be a 2006 Focus), the wife bought a used Kia Spectra (about 2 years old). After we signed all of the paperwork, etc. and drove off the lot, we looked through the glove box of the Spectra and found that they actually sold it to us used for about $2-3,000 above the price it sold for new. - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
Best: 2005 Honda Civic EX, because each new Civic has been better. Worst: '95 (?) Nissan Sentra, the only non-Honda we've ever owned (my wife's car, replaced by a Civic a few years later). Not a terrible car, but a disappointment by comparison. - Walt Crawford
Worst: my 2006 Focus. From about the time it came out of warranty it was problematic. Consistent electrical problems, 3 or 4 alternators in a year, and no one could find the problem. My best is a tie: my first car purchase was a 1994 Suzuki Swift. Completely unsafe, black car with no air conditioning, but so much fun to drive, and incredibly reliable. I sold it, but apparently it's... more... - ellbeecee
Best: my 2006 Toyota Highlander. Worst: Don't have one. I've only had two cars and the 1996 Toyota Corolla I had was a good car until I was t-boned by an old bat and everything went to hell with it. - Kristin
Best 2002 Subaru WRX. Worst: hmm don't have one maybe Mitsubishi 3000GT by default as it's only car I ever had mechanical issues with. - Steve C Team Marina

Yosemite is becoming the Windows ME of stability.
Hmm... has not quite been my experience thus far. - Julian
Julian, I had a honeymoon period too - things were great, didn't know what all the hubbub from veteran Mac peeps was all about. Now I do. - Micah from FFHound!
What kind of issues are you seeing? - Lola Bean (Penguin) from iPhone
Penguin, it's almost always a total freeze. Can't get Force Quit to come up. No response to keyboard, touch. Except the power button - so have to reboot at that point. No one application is at fault, either. Ah well. - Micah from FFHound!
I have some serious screen/graphics freezing issues. - joey
Mail.app is terrible. It will happily consume all available memory and cause the rest of the running applications to pause. Messages still attaches to my mouse in 10.10.1 (click on another app, then click on the title bar of Messages (not Buddies), move mouse, click again and it has followed/moved the Messages window to where you clicked again.) My main work machine is staying 10.9 so I can have something stable. - Neal Krummell
I'm on Yosemite at work (as are a dozen others). No issues. - Brent Schaus from iPhone
Joel, Micah: What hardware? 2011 Macbook Pros have a well known graphics chip issue that causes graphics problems and freezes. - Technodad from iPhone
I'll add that Yosemite has been solid for me on a Retina MBP. I occasionally saw the WiFi disconnect front certain routers - that is reportedly fixed in the new release. - Technodad from iPhone
I also haven't had any issues w/Yosemite, Mail, or Messages on an old Mac Pro. - rönin
Technodad, only getting it on my new MBP. My 2011 one has had no issues (but I also did not upgrade it to Yosemite). - joey
Leveraging my sore throat voice, I just did a half decent P.W. impression and said, "I'm a loner, Dottie. A rebel." Had my 9yo is crac-king. UP.

Measles Outbreak in a Highly Vaccinated Population, San Diego, 2008: Role of the Intentionally Undervaccinated - http://www.pediatricsdigest.mobi/content...
"An intentionally unvaccinated 7-year-old unknowingly infected with measles returned from Switzerland, resulting in >800 known exposed persons and 11 additional cases. The outbreak was fueled by clusters of intentionally unvaccinated children and perpetuated by delayed clinical diagnosis and inadequate infection-control measures. Because of community vaccination rates of >90%, the outbreak began to subside before containment started, but a vigorous public health response halted transmission beyond the third generation at a public-sector cost of more than $10 000 per case. Results of discussion-groups and an online network survey suggested that parents of intentionally undervaccinated children tended to be white, college-educated, and of upper- and middle-income levels. The majority of them believed that a “natural lifestyle” protects children from vaccine-preventable diseases and that vaccines can cause multiple health conditions, especially autism." - Micah from Bookmarklet
"During the 1980s and 1990s, undervaccination in the United States was primarily unintentional, associated with diminished access to health care, and was frequently observed among inner-city ethnic or racial minorities, inner-city families living in poverty,16 and children whose mothers had limited education.17 Outbreaks attributable to vaccine refusal tended to be observed among... more... - Micah
