Uhh, I'd judge you if you had access to a lift but chose to do it at home instead.

Nah, if we were in a southern state maybe. We get several snows a year. That's why I'm looking to a awd daily now that I don't have a truck anymore. Not uncommon to get a few that put down 6-8 inches along with drifting, every winter. The worst is freezing rain. Noting drives well in that skating rink. Already had 1 of those.

I'm still kicking, I've been pretty damn sick the last week, with no signs of letting up.

Printer in my office **** the bed - printing lines of yellow and green across the page.

Told my boss and he goes "have you Googled the problem? Is it out of ink?"

Yeah it's out of ink even though it's shitting ink all over the page. I'm not doing a print head service on this piece of **** mid-2000's printer that the company got for free - mainly because I have better things to do with company time instead of playing printer repairman.

So I hand wrote the check, because apparently there aren't any other printers in this office that I can use.

Is it Friday yet?

Chains or studs for ice, otherwise good luck.

My Cobalt is sitting in the garage with the front end up in the air on jack stands waiting on me to quit procrastinating. I need to drop the transmission but am waiting on oil analysis results to get back just in case I end up needing to drop the cradle anyway.

Is it even possible to remove the trans without dropping the cradle? I don't think it is.

I dont think it is. You might be able to wiggle it out by the driver wheel well but even then I dont think it fits.

He didn't really call me out more like start arguing with me about some stupid specific detail that was mostly irrelevant to the whole discussion. Then he would flip it around to make it sound like I'm the one that started a meaningless argument when I was only defending my original position. Usually ended with Slowbalt coming in and deleting all the comments that made him look like a jackass.

I just recently had an argument with someone on facebook who reminded me of him about using the oil viscosity the manufacturer calls for, that heavier oil isn't always better. This guy boasted his credentials as an engineer, his dad did it for 18 years, and he built an Audi with 350hp so that was his proof that it is better to run 10w-60 in all the things.

Totally buying one of these someday. Just not sure how safe I'd feel crawling under one.

Getting tired of using a jack, then placing stands.
