    I am no longer promiscuous

    My days of experimenting with different brands and viscosities are now pretty much at an end. I am using Shell Rotella Syn 5w-40 in all my internal combustion engines, ranging from a 2003 GMC Duramax diesel to an old Infiniti Q-45, a 32 year old BMW air cooled twin motorcycle, and even my...

    Religious bears

    I heard a joke, and then a variant of the same joke. Two ministers were walking through the woods when they encountered a pack of hungry bears. As the bears came closer, one minister said to the other, "I hope these bears have Christian values". With that, one bear comes up very close and...

    An unintentional Michael Jackson funny

    I was talking to an old crummudgeon radio ham friend of mine yesterday, and we were discussing the Michael Jackson verdict. Out of his mouth came the following sentence: "Michael Jackson....he just rubs me the wrong way." I guess he was an overnight guest at Neverland Ranch!!

    How did this oil get associated with elves?

    I assume its some kind of elf in the Black Forest thing. However, when I think of Germany and synthetic oil, I think of Albert Speer and WW2! <img border="0" title="" alt="[Eek!]" src="images/icons/shocked.gif" />

    Don't feed the trolls!

    Our good hosts here at BITOG have made it clear that religion/sex/politics do not belong on the Board. I heartily agree. There are other places for that stuff, and the number of such topics that have had to be "locked" are now quite few. However, there are still some topics that get started...

    PaulHamm and his Gold medal

    If you were the recipient of an Olympic Gold medal under the disputed circumstances by which Paul Hamm received his, what would you do? I would offer to have the event re-scored. His Gold medal is now so tarnished that it is about the same in value as OJ Simpson's not guilty verdict. He is a...

    My trip to Harriman NY WalMart

    On a return trip from New Jersey to Vermont, I was passing through this town today and saw a really big WalMart that I had not been to before. So like any self-respecting BITOG member, I checked out the oil department, with special interest in Mobil 1 Truck and SUV, Mobil 1 0w-40, and Shell...
