Holy. -------. ----. I haven't laughed this hard in a long time. Here's a sample of what they have to say about Hitler:

Quote:
...consciously sought to make the practices of Germany conform to the theory of evolution.
Holy crap. This site is so awful I want to say that it's parody intended to kill someone from laughing too hard - but it's actually a real, genuine site intended for serious informational purposes. I'm not joking! I swear! I am serious!

Should I think postage or adult industry direction? If the former, we had one of those at my last job, pretty cool. If the latter, I wouldn't know

Closer to the latter than the former, I'm afraid.

In the 1970s, Mr. Owl mocked us every Saturday morning from behind the protective glass of the TV screen, by promising an answer to the eternal question "How many licks does it take to get to the center of a Tootsie Roll Tootsie Pop?"



Unfortunately, Mr. Owl was a douchebag, who aborted each and every test run after only three licks, chomping down on the pop to reach the sickly-sweet brown center. And it seemed, that as the narrator would intone each time, "The world may never know."


Unwilling to accept this quandary, engineering students at Purdue university constructed an automatic licking machine, consisting of six tongues mounted around the outside of a rotating drum, which is driven by an electric motor and arranged such that the tongues come into contact with a Tootsie Pop and lick it as they revolve.



Using this apparatus, the students observed that an average of 364 licks were required to expose the core of the Tootsie Pop, although I can't find any data on the total range of licks-to-exposure which were observed across multiple test runs.



Since then, a chemical engineering doctorate student from the University of Michigan constructed a licking machine of his own design, and recorded an average lick-resistance of 411 passes before core exposure.

Goddamn this car. but Went out on another date with this girl I've been seeing, and as if my car isn't an embarrassment enough, as soon as I pick her up, the ------- clutch master cylinder, which has already been revolting for the last year, decides to finally ---- itself. So the whole date I'm using the ------- starter to get going at lights and ----. I'm fortunate that she has a sense of humor and is laid back, because she just laughed and called it adventure driving. Good thing I rev match with the best of them. Add another thing on this goddamn car to fix.

I have a confession to make: I let some mexican change out my supra's clutch as a favor to me that he owed... now ironically after reading NA6Cs post about his master cylinder, my own slave cylinder fell off the transmission while driving with my girl and her very hot girlie friends of which were crammed into my supra for joyrides (major ego boost), until my slave cylinder fell out. So I too, revved matched my way to the nearest parking lot, where I had to break out the emergency jack, raise the car, and put two new bolts in to hold the slave cylinder. Along with girlie mockery and laughter, I finally got it installed, and did a celebratory wheel spin and turbo spool up out of the parking lot. Ego was restored.


Now I am telling you all this story from the comfort of my car, via laptop and phone tether, waiting for them to get out of the stupid salon since one of them is a very hot single mom.

So what happened? Sexy dance in the miata or a kiss on the cheek and a 7-digit phone number?

Haha. Nah, we have been seeing each other for a little while now, so she was already used to my cars bullshit. This is just one more thing about the car that she probably despises, but won't come out and say so. I can sense it though. Hell, I hate the car, and it's mine and I have that weird love/hate attachment to it.

Since the slaves love to fail, I just ordered ORielly's cheapest parts. $19.99 each for the slave and master cylinder. So it's not too bad having to replace every year. I think this is slave #3.

Dude, get the slaves/masters with lifetime warranties. Profit.

P.S. Also get the lifetime warranty FD alts. It's worth a few extra bucks, seriously.

I did. They are the cheapest they had, but they do have lifetime warranty on both. Will do for the FD alt as well.

I haven't done any research as to the diameter of our clutch master cylinder reservoir, but does anyone know of one of the pump up bulb type self bleeders for our clutch master? Those are by far my favorite kind to use, much better than the hand pump kind you use to suck from the slave end.
