    Roaster engine died while driving, won't start

    When you say "tries to turn over but cant" do you mean the starter engages the engine and it moves but not enough to crank or do you mean it seems as the engine is seized? When it died did it come to a stop with the engine turning or did it lock up? would still be best to put a new battery in and try as that has worked on many strange situations in a murcy.
  3. We had some Staffordshire bull terriers in England when we were kids, you are correct, they are loving and loyal dogs to their owners but we had to get rid of ours as they are also very protective of their owners and would become very nasty towards other people or animals if they thought our/ their territory was being invades. It is not worth the liability or worry to own one.
  4. Agree, kind of like having a "tame" big cat. sooner or later it will get pissed or just a little annoyed and take a bite, why put yourself or others in harms way. Also on topic, yes shoot the fuckers that fight dogs or abuse any animal for that matter.

    Anthony Bourdain Won't Be Cooking Dinner Tonight...

    I would agree if you are just pissed off with life at the moment but sometimes mental illness and also prescription drugs can alter your perception of things.

    Why are lap times calculated with car already moving?

    Yes the standing start thing that stig uses is really just for fun as it includes a drag race to the first corner and as we know some really fast cars are not good at drag races and vice versa, its the same thing for qualifying lap times in racing.

    Self employed / heath insurance

    Fortis, thanks for the concern, I am anything but broke, (I do drive a lambo and have a nice house in Florida) but am pissed at the situation. After working hard all my life, employing many people, paying gobs of tax and helping as much as I can I get a disease when I should be relaxing and the present state of the nation is telling me "tough shit pay up some more" In all honesty the people who may suffer financially will probably be my heirs and that will be many, many years in the future. I do get good medical attention and although I am light years from joining them I think one of the major causes for bankruptcy in the US are medical bills. I am just using this thread as a rant against a situation that I have no control over and being English in the US find it hard to fathom the same as you probably do being Australian. I feel for the people who may be in the same situation as I am but with just enough money to have a reasonable life and are now facing the reality of loosing their retirement funds and possibly house. Fortis, you always come across as a thoughtful compassionate person and I am sure you do good things in your life.

    Self employed / heath insurance

    This is the real scary part. At the moment the insurance companies are not allowed to discriminate due to pre existing conditions (read cancer) under the Obama era health care rules, this rule is one that the present government is trying to stop. If this is the case I would probably become uninsurable, or have premiums/ deductibles exclusions that in essence make me uninsurable. I paid my insurance for ever and still do, Over the years I paid for 100's of employees, including their wives and kids insurance, I paid and still do pay pay taxes. If things carry on as they seem I probably will end up fucked or broke or both.

    Self employed / heath insurance

    Health insurance is my big concern at the moment. I sold my business a few years ago and am using cobra (BCBS) from a previous company that I was employed as a consultant by. My costs are $1300 per month including my wife with a $5k deductible that I always use now as I got cancer just after retiring, each visit also costs me $40, my annual check up for the cancer is around $12k COBRA is due to run out soon and I am looking at an annual cost (Premium and deductible) of about $30k or more This is a real kick in the pants as for a few years prior to selling and upon selling I had to pay the extra 3.9% tax that Obama instituted on income to help cover the Obamacare plans for people who need assistance. Not much I can do about it but move out of the USA, not an option at the moment so its a big pill to swallow.

    So how much $$$$ are you going after?

    Wheels, if the idea and business plan are good and you can present both and yourself well, money will be your least problem.
