Default Can we please have an Epic Fail section?

There has been much epic fail by our many members.

I think it would be fantastic if we had a section that immortalized those posts. I can think of many posts and events i reas about here that had so much sadness

I'd have to move every post of yours into it, Min, and that would be a lot of effort.

i'd contribute.
almost every single thing i did to my previous car would fall under the "fail" umbrella.

I do miss the Fail Factor section of which I was a mod for a day. That was so much fun but Rick thought we'd get sued. That meant it was REAL good.

i watched a friend strip a fuel pump bolt head (torx or inverted torx, don't recall) and take a dremel to his engine bay.
not quite a sawzall, but definitely worthy of a laugh.
this was in an ms6 with an in-tank pump as well as a high pressure pump in the engine bay.

i've had my hp fuel pump seize on me and had to drive almost 40 miles on 50psi of fuel pressure instead of 400-1700 (depending on load)
