I worry about the future for my kids, and I worry about the future for myself as well. This ol' world is going to hell in a hand basket and I just wish I could visit the past and curl up under it like a big blanket. Even if just for a little while.
I feel you brother (Sir?). Many members of my family (and my wife too) are excited with the thought of me and my wife having children, but I can't bring myself to have offspring, at least not in this current condition of the world.
On top of all of that, I worry constantly about my grandmother and her health and what life will be like when she is gone. She has been a big part of my life for all of my 31 years. She's 89 now, ...
Hey, samesies! My grandmother celebrated her 89th birthday last April, and she lives her almost entire life with just one kidney.
@aremmes My church is having their annual rummage sale. It's HUGE. Like, really large. Last year we cleared $27K in sales over 5 days. Yesterday was a four hour "preview" night, where we charge $5 to get in the door, and people can shop till they drop. We did $14K in one day. There is a whole room full of tools, camping and sports equipment. A full size gym is packed full of clothing, electronics, kitchen items and housewares. We have more books for sale then many libraries. Used furniture, bikes and outdoor items by the dozens. People buy stuff by the truck load the first day, just to resell on Ebay and what not. It's nuts, but a great money maker for my church.
@pip-bip watched this earlier today, some of their 'fixes' made me want to punch them in the face!
That taillight for example, where they claimed there was a missing hole....their wasn't. Some models of that taillight had that hole there, but others were only held in by screws through the lens AND the assembly....the assembly they just tech-screwed in place without putting the lens on first...
And cardboard and tape to fix rust! I feel bad for that poor little 126! 😞
it's good! it gets pretty precise towards the end. which means every stunt is ridiculous trial and error, which sucks. modern games aren't this brutal.
but generally it's awesome, and it's so cool to see all the same tech I know from Driver 3, but in an earlier state and for a different purpose.
@black-villain I don't know for a fact, but it may well be possible to get the timing on one cam out exactly far enough that the valves kiss the piston rather than interfering hard, which'd lead to a short period of running followed by a cyclic stress failure of the valve stem. Seems odd that it happened to two cylinders simultaneously though, unless it's been running after a fashion with one valve head bouncing around inside #3 (leading the PO to give up and sell it), and #2 letting go was what finally killed it for you. You'd expect the inside of #3 to look pretty beat up if that were the case though, even if it's only run like that for a short while.
Even weirder if someone did the chains and didn't upgrade the tensioners, since normally that'd be the main reason you were messing with the chains in the first place: as previously discussed, those orange ones that are in it aren't the gen3 ones.
It'll be interesting to see what state the tensioner is in when you get it apart - I wonder whether rather than terminally failing as they usually do it's managed to get sticky enough to let one cam jump a few teeth, then released itself and reapplied tension.
It's amazing how many times ships change hands. Refitting one seems like an interesting way of spending part of your billions. I wonder if Bezos has ever considered an ocean liner instead of a space ship.
Running vessels is very very cut throat. It's a real play to win the monopoly for companies.
