    why DID screw propelled vehicles never BECOME popular

      ESL here, shouldn't it be "have"?

        It's have if you're wondering why they aren't popular RIGHT NOW, while it's "did" if you're just wondering in general why they failed to become popular in the past.

        It's have if you're wondering why they aren't popular RIGHT NOW, while it's "did" if you're just wondering in general why they failed to become popular in the past.

        says, did is past tense, but have would also be correct as it includes the past up to the present. e.g. why did the ancient Romans pour their shit on the streets vs why have the Indians never learned to shit on a toilet, in the first did is purely past tense, I. In the second have indicates the statement is about both the past and present. There's a name for this tense but as a native speaker I've never had to worry about it after grade school. Imperfect tense maybe?

      Huh. I noticed they're all making the same sort of grammatical mistakes but haven't been able to narrow it down to a country.

      could just be a bad autocorrect, seetheberg. people never used to spin out about typos, nowadays spergs think theyve cracked a code on some boogeyman being behind every shit thread, in spite of this being a website made from day one for underage anime-watching dropouts; which isnt a demographic known for thier broad vocab and high literacy.

        You're a newhomosexual, newhomosexual. Back in the old days, outside of /b/, having shitty spelling and grammar, lack of punctuation, etc., would get you bullied off the site (or back to /b/) and this helped keep the quality of the site up immensely. One of the few good things about modern PrepHole is that we're finally bringing back shitting on people with shitty spelling and grammar - because they're universally the worst posters.

    the screw gets fricked up on hard terrain, can't go on roads, only works on mud, snow, water

    the Screws were not compatible with the road. doing repairs because of ballistically induced apertures is difficult and would require either wielding or to remove the screw. they have a speed range, which is like 35mph cap and cannot go faster if you try you will damage the screws.

        Literally ploughing ahead. You don't get it, behind them is *freshly churned* mud. There is no going back. East of the Carpathians, during some parts of the year, you never stop sinking. You either go forward or are never seen again and the rich Ukrainian soil becomes slightly more fertile. Infact, it is a common ritual execution method.

          The area I live in used to be Marsh land for tens of miles, the city was actually known as 'the Isle' since it was one of the few bits of solid ground.
          Getting heavy vehicles biggest down off road happens all the time, I've even seen tractors with caterpillar tracks sink meters into the mud. People say there's no 'bottom to it' its just thousands of years of settled silt.

        The cheeky grins from them is due to the fact they're there to help unbog the vehicle the cameraguy is in.
