I'm usually really respectful since we have a demising wall. But after first playing it through the phone I just had to do it through the surround.

I'll occasionally do this one as well, though it looks like the full episode is no longer on the tubes:

There are reasons that they are. They are solitary hunters, and if injured have no colony to fall back on. So they back off from humans and other larger animals that can injure them.

Humans are just too big to be prey, too threatening. So even if you see one and its hissing or growling at you its either warning you to stay away from its territory, or rabid. Stand your ground and while tense it won't attack unless you continue to provoke.

Even Cougars don't regularly hunt humans, but are larger than Bobcats so are more dangerous.

That said, both can fuck you up if provoked. Sharp ass claws and strong bites with sharp teeth.

All fuel lines were replaced last year, along with the tank. It flared up from the right side of the engine (from driver's position), so need to pull the cover to see what's going on and how much damage there was, to see if the unit is salvageable. I think there was a slight oil leak somewhere, as I had shut it off only 20 minutes earlier and could smell burning oil coming up through the head. I'm just surprised it didn't catch on fire as I was using it.

Gonna need to replace the engine, which means starting a hunt for one, or for someone that can help me with it.

Fucking architecture people are wanting shit in specific ways but are just like "RTFM" and not really taking questions. At this point what I'm working on is really their fucking job and at most I should be doing data entry and really they should be figuring it out since their naming scheme is incompatible with Oracles.

I made pancakes too, used some vanilla extract for a different flavor.

I have enough syrup and maple flavored corn syrup to last me three years.

People selling shit are dick heads. Had a link sent over for a bike I'e been looking for. I know the original owner of this bike as well. I message the current owner and make a fair offer. He says price is firm so I agree to that. I said OK I'll take it. Lets meet up 1/2 way between our homes and I'll meet you with cash in hand. All this goes down within a matter of 10 minutes. Then Nothing back, Nothing back.... I message him again and said hey I want to buy the bike, I can have my friend (original owner) grab it for me if meeting up isn't an option. When he meets you I'll pay pal you or quick pay you the cash then he will take the bike. I'll him this weekend and pick it up from him. Still nothing. I go to check back and he has it marked sold now. WTF man!!! At least tell me instead of totally ignoring me.

So this gets going even more. I get linked to a For Sale Post last night. Literally 2 minutes after the post went up. So some guy near Rockford bought the bike and posted it up for almost $600 more than he paid for it. I messaged him saying I'll give you the same amount you paid for the bike 10 hours earlier and come up to get it. Nothing back at all. So other people caught that is was the same bike and have been getting in his ass about it. People fucking suck man. Even at the price he was now selling it for is a good deal but man fuck him. All this guy is, is a flipper. Took the bike, rode it through a bunch of mud and posted up for sale. (n)

Wait, changed headlights, lost boost? That’s like from Nitro Circus The Movie where the guy lands on his head and says he has a calf cramp, lol.
Its frustrating went to go grab some food engine light was on P0034 code. Seems like the BOV is open might have missed a plug or something. Its been a long day.

The rain stopped. On radar it was long gone. So again, I go out and dry off the G8.

Go in the garage, turn around, and it's fucking drizzling again. Check radar, sure as shit a small line of nusance showers has popped up coming right for us.

God damned mother fucking fuck.

this brand new power steering pump whines out of the box. Which mean it’s only going to get worse.
I have power assist when cold but when hot and the idle settles down to its usual 900 rpm there is definitely more effort requires and it feels notchy.
While the guy in autozoo was nice about it and is going to order yet another replacement pump I’m annoyed and frustrated and the fact that I have to R&R this pump again.

Any way to bench test them before installing?

Fucked up an EP9 80% lower by not setting depth correctly. Kept tinkering with it on the drill press and my chuck keeps coming off. Gonna have to deal with that shit I guess. Probably means I need an easyjig setup or to get off my ass, get my new to me lathe in and get the tooling made to just do it on my Atlas.
