Thanks.

I am finding out it's so old the local diesel shop doesn't want to touch it.  Not enough computer for them to hook any diagnostics to.

Now to shop for a plow.  .  .

I bought a truck.

A diesel that smokes like a... uh... It smokes a lot.

I think I figured out why but I'm stuck at work and can't work on it and it's driving me crazy.

the funny thing is that, i'm pretty sure the reason that my truck is smoking is because it is retarded, literally

What kind of truck?

--Nigel, fapping.

'93 F250 Super Cab Long Box 7.3L IDI Diesel 5 speed manual.  Its seriously like 20 feet long. 

I advanced the timing a bunch and now it only smokes like a diesel is supposed to.

Niiice! I have a bit of a Ford truck fetish but it's generally localized to fifth and sixth generation.

This is my first Ford, first Diesel and first manual transmission (other than bikes)

What I get a kick out of is the '93 is the last year they ran this engine and, I think the last year for this body style.

My '07 KLR650 is the last year for that style.

They will both run the same motor oil.

So, I think it belongs in the fleet.

1) acquire dark glasses and cane
2) go to local "big box" store
3) shop as though you are blind causing minor disturbance
4) leave store
5) get in car and drive away

The Richard Nixon school of ballet and the arts / Re: Gaining Faith

I think developing faith or believing in something is ok as long as you remember that whatever you chose to believe in is a choice that you made.

i have chosen to believe in certain things because my psyche can't cope with the alternative.  i realize that it is a choice and that the beliefs may be false.

i think it also has something to do with accepting one's own fallibility

I kinda chuckled at the idea of this being a 'sticky' thread.  But, yeah, I saw a comment about someone's inability to refrain from spagging up other threads with comments about their sex life and thought maybe if there was a thread devoted to just that, it may help.

go ahead.  if you want to.

since i got divorced my sex life has been fucking great.

The global trend is toward the poor getting less poor. That extra cash has gotta go somewhere. Diamandis is a big-picture thinker. He's not too concerned with the way things currently are as much as where they're either headed or can be steered. In the end, he's worth a stack and his goal might not be pure altruism but he's one of a growing number of filthy rich fucks who've cottoned on to the idea that the more money the poor have, the more they can spend on the shit he's selling.

it never really occurred to me until just now that there are two classes of filthy rich fucks.  the ones who have something to sell and the ones who don't.  I think this means there's a bit of an inner conflict between the two - in that the ones who don't have anything to sell are served by keeping the poor poor while the one's who do have something to sell are served by making the poor not-so-poor. 

The second group essentially stealing from the first group - by filtering money through the poor.

No.  No, we couldn't.  I have this monster ego thing, you see, based on capitalized I's.

i think with a lot more effort than it's probably worth - you could make some sort of joke about how there's no "I" in "ego"

Aneristic Illusions / Re: The strange dichotomy of stupidity

This thread makes me want to add something about the people who say, "yeah, he's smart, but he's book smart," as though they are trying to both admit they, themselves, are not as smart but at the same time assert that they are just as capable.

Maybe it means I draw the line at people who are able to recognize intelligence?
