Its been way too long since I have logged in... but I bring you pointless banter once again!


I finally got to watch a lil tv today... when a Hyundai commercial came on, I was liek "oh ****, a sedan commercial... better go pee..." then the commercial was all liek "Introducing the new... 2011 Turbocharged Sonata..." And I was all like "Wait, wat!1!!!?"


so now I am emotionally confused about myself.

lolololololz I did say pointless banter...


I just had a mind spooge session when I imagined the Kia Forte KOUP with that engine. I sold my Scoobie GC8 WRX STi Swap because I am tired of the subaru crowd after 5 months of ownership... not only that, I have decided I hate working on subaru engines. I have my 94 miata and 96 lexus ES300 DD, but I at least want something fun for the DD. A turbo'ed spectra might be nice in 2012... no matter what it will forever be a chick car tho.

I have heard that not having an oil pressure reliefe valve can cause not getting oil pressure.

I heard that driving with no oil could also cause no oil pressure.

The kicker is that the shop told him the gauge would work in reverse due to the swap. The car had the 5psi switch, the gauge was pegged at idle but would drop to 0 as soon as you touch the throttle.

^ that's a ******* weird combination. Kinda cool, I might see it.

Since I'm probably never having kids, I bought me a hedgehog to call my son. Easy as hell to take care of. Unlike a dog that needs to be walked and cats that shed everywhere and cause allergies.

Wow if you're going to do an interview on TV after you just hit a freakin school bus, it might make sense to do the interview if you are NOT drunk

Bah ha ha ha. I had one of those. They're pretty sweet. They naturally carry salmonella, so be sure to wash your hands after you handle it. I named mine Grumpy, since it was a grumpy **** 80% of the time.

Also, they respond well to fruity hand lotions. It helps them to be more open to you handling it and then, over time, they won't curl into a ball and make that annoying huffing noise.
