Re: Your car engine sound is a LIE

It is also a safety feature. I have been surprised by hybrid cars coming up behind me while I am walking in a parking lot. You just can not hear some of them. One can easily step in front of a car without realizing a car was right behind you. [more]

My driving style falls into the 'spirited' category. Our grocery hauler SUV has 62K on the odometer. I'm on the second set of (disc) brakes on the front wheels, but at a recent check, my mechanic told me there was no need to renew the rear (drum) [more]

Re: Curiouser and curiouser

The Olts are saying that the Patriot game balls weren't used for at least part of the first half either.

Looking like this is an issue for the NFL and NFL ball attendants

Patriots Used Colts Balls For Part of First Half

The whole Patriots cheated story is falling apart. Jackson also said he never complained about the ball being under pressure, and he wants it back because he picked off Brady.

A town's entire economy built on oil - and a town expecting to lose 20,000 oil related jobs by June. That would mean the ripple effect (4 to 5 jobs for each worker cut) will impact 80K to 100K people through the Bakken. Regional recession here we [more]

Also, saying other QBs cheated too doesn't provide a defense.

Re: Running down a CEL in the s2000

I will have to think about keeping a spare on hand, especially since it's a special order part.

Weird it is special order - I would definitely keep one on hand. My understanding is when one goes the rest are suspect at this point.
