I busted two wheels on a curb, and had to wait forever for new ones to ship. I finally bolted them on Tuesday, went for a road test, and found that my steering is all fucked up.
Best I can tell, the steering rack ended up bent from the impact and it'll have to be replaced. It's not impossible but it's a big job and the parts are not cheap.
It's 6 miles walk from my house to the nearest bus stop, and the buses really don't go anywhere that I actually want to go. At least my car is somewhat drivable now, it doesn't seem to be in danger of running me off the road or anything, the steering is just stiff as fuck and it pulls hard to the left.

It wouldn't have been so bad if I had a garage to work in. I'd just drop the engine in myself- But it's like 20 degrees out, no way in hell am I doing an engine swap in the freezing cold! lol.
Well if you need parts for the cheap, order it on advance auto part's website- Select "Pick up in store", and use the discount code TRT30. It'll save you 30% up to a total of $50 in savings. Gonna order more than $50 in savings? Place two orders.
Hope that helps!

It's an old british car-- 1973 MGB to be exact. I was going to get, you know, a normal car, but this old MGB was such a great price and in such good condition that I had to get it. And up until I ran it into a curb at 35mph, it was amazingly reliable and solid. After I fixed the electrics, of course. I got it so cheap because the previous owner had spend a fortune on mechanics trying to fix the electrical system. I'm an electrician (kind of) so I had it all fixed up in no time.
Advance auto doesn't have the part, not surprisingly, probably because it's so old and so british. Thanks anyway, though.

What exactly happened to your engine, anyway?
#36 - CyrilKeir (01/15/2015) [-]
Oh well there you go, at least it was an easy fix for you!
My best guess is that the internal timing chain on one of the cams slipped. The external timing belt is fine, so it has to be internal. This engine is an interference engine, so if the timing is off, it smacks the valves around like a red-headed stepchild that double-dipped in the cream cheese.
In short it's cheaper to just drop a new engine in for now. I'll be tearing the old engine apart over the summer to figure out exactly why it failed, and then rebuild it with forged internals, in preparation for turbo charging it.

I used to. I kicked the habit not too long after graduating high school though. I still buy them occasionally and still plow through it like it's nothing though.
I made all sorts of stuff from my leftover tins. Belt buckles, portable speakers, USB chargers, etc. I don't have anything left though, except for the belt buckle. I might still have it somewhere.

No, I see your point but I tink you're incorrect.
A Sishi Odoshi HAS to move, otherwise there is no stop in the waterflow.
The cup just delays the waterflow for the amount of water/fluid the cup can hold without spilling. If that amount is reached, every drop that goes into the cup instantly runs through the siphon down the drain.
I also didn't know about the Sishi Odoshi thing, I just trusted you, that the tilting bamboo water thingy is named that way.

Same here, both parents came from dirt poor farmer families in Italy. The answer to your question is slaves, plain and simple. It's not about equality, it's about dominance. If you come from a wealthy white family and are successful, you are privileged because you're rich. If you come from a poor white family and are successful, your white skin got you the job. No matter what you do, there is some imaginary person of color somewhere who was equal to or better than you that doesn't have what you have because of their skin color. No matter how much they fail, it's your fault. No matter how much you succeed, you didn't earn it. People will come up with all types of excuses to validate their inaction and/or their shortcomings. It is a demoralization tactic. People who think like this are, simply put, nazis who don't have the means or balls to be nazis.
