    In regards to torquing bolts, I came up with this sage advice:

    "Tighten'er till she strips, then back'er off half a turn."

    Similar on the bolt tightening... Every bolt has the same torque spec... tighten it to half a turn before it snaps

    From the same lusty cocktail waitress in post #18:

    "I'll try anything once. If I like it...(wink! wink!)....I'll do it some more!"


    More wise wisdom from the Wise One(Me):

    "The best thing about breaking things on your Opel, is that it gives you an excuse to buy even better cooler stuff to try to break on your Opel."

    I was talking with a fellow older single guy at work today, lamenting our lack of spouses, the horror stories we hear from guys with spouses, divorce, etc.

    He said his dad told him:

    "When it's all said and done, we all end up sleeping in single beds."

    Attributed to Bartlett (author of Bartlett's Book of Famous Quotes) as his most often used quote: Can I put that in my book?

    Others:

    Better to keep your mouth shut and be thought a fool, than open your mouth and remove all doubt.

    We need to quit asking:"How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.

    There are two kinds of people in this world: those who put people into categories and those who don't.

    The two most boring things in the world: 1. Jogging, 2. Listening to a jogger talk about jogging.

    And then there is Yogi, who had some classics, but my favorite: When you come to a fork in the road, take it.
