    So what is your take on Wendy's "Natural" fries?

    I eat at Wendy's pretty regularly, and I can't say I noticed much of a difference. Like them the same as the old kind. Better fries than most places have, and they have the best ketchup, weird as that sounds. Sometimes it's a bit off, not sure if they're alternating suppliers or what. Not...

    Rubbing Alcohol into Windshield Washer Fluid?

    No reason you can't use ethanol as rubbing alcohol. A bit confusing for the consumer but most people wouldn't care as long as it works. Very similar chemically to methanol which is what most WWF has, so no problem there. I don't know about the other stuff in there, but diluted into a gallon or...

    NO thermal compound available,what can i use......

    I would say... don't use it until you get proper thermal compound. No point risking toasting your processor.

    "I see dumb people"

    I ordered a Filet-o-Fish once and got a chicken patty covered in tartar sauce. It was different, but I wouldn't recommend it. Wendy's is pretty good. One or two mistakes but nothing major. And when I pay with change they can do the math, which I appreciate.

    Top 10: Mechanic Scams (synthetic oil)

    The article seems fine. They say not to get pushed into an unnecessary upgrade to synthetic, particularly in an older junker. Sounds reasonable to me. Some cars need it, many don't. Just like using 94 octane gas in a car that only needs 87 is generally a waste of money.

    Biggest box office bombs

    I'm surprised Waterworld didn't make it too. I thought WW, Postman, and Final Fantasy were decent movies. Not classics, but not stinkers. But Leonard Part 6 was... ugh.

    Grow Up, Bob.

    How are we supposed to make fun of Newfies when you write eloquently? Throw us a bone here. Chug some screech or kiss a cod or something. Glad things have turned around on the Rock. BC's been doing well enough... real estate prices are still ridiculous in Vancouver. Time to head east, perhaps.

    Anyone using Synlube?

    While it may be possible to make such an oil, Synlube itself has been pretty clearly shown to not be all it claims to be. A search for the last thread on it should be both revealing and entertaining!

    Who here enjoys Calvin and Hobbes?

    I just picked up a couple collections on sale at the book store, and then got a couple more. I think I have them all now. Great stuff, though I think I erred in reading so many in a short span since some jokes cover the same ground. Favorites are probably anything with snowmen, or Calvin...

    PQIA tests six oils - Three are out of spec!

    I used some Pitt Penn oil a few years ago. Seemed to do all right. Though as I recall, "Quality" is their SA brand, not SM, so it's no surprise it doesn't meet SM standards. They have Quality, Superior, and something else. I'd look it up on their website but it seems to be down, and the article...
