    *BANG* (Garage Door Spring)

    I was watching tv in the garage one day when one of the smaller springs let go. Yes make sure there is a cable that runs through the middle of the spring so it doesn't kill someone.

    Nio stock. How high will it go?

    So far what ive learned is patience is key. Most of these stocks I sold after a short period of time ended up going way way higher a year or two later after I sold them. Not that I didn't make a profit off the stocks I held for a short period of time.

    Nio stock. How high will it go?

    I don't think nio is just going to go belly up out of nowhere., the Chinese government is invested in that company.

    <div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Originally Posted by JLawrence08648</div><div class="ubbcode-body">Instead of NIO, look at buying Nikola NKLA.</div></div> That one did the same thing. Went from 10 to $50/share.

    Nio stock. How high will it go?

    Anyone invested in this stock? Tesla stock is sitting at $1500/share right now. Is it a pipe dream to think that NIO could hit $200/share?

    Garden Hose for Gasoline Transfer?

    Safely? No. Stupidly? Yes. Go spend $6 and buy some fuel line hose. So what are you going to do with that garden hose after your done putting gasoline through it? Water the lawn?

    Hour meter - not moving?

    My ferris is like that. They wired it to the pto, so the hour meter only runs when the blades are on. I guess too many idiots leave the key on with the engine off. I wired up a hobbs meter in addition to the regular one, so now I know total run time and blade run time. lol I have like 188hrs...

    Eco Diesel failure

    That's what I heard. Common internal failures. Keep your mouth shut about the oil unless they ask, but if they ordered an engine no questions asked, then that's also a clue that this isn't a fluke.
