I'm guessing those are hash brown or potato patties being used for the sandwich above, but that just looks so wrong to my weird eyes. 

Morning, campers.

That was a big thank you, if you couldn't tell. *slurp*

This is how absurd “we” have become.

The horror!

Never mind the Buddhas of Bamiyan, they don't bow down to a URINAL!

And on an unrelated note: I think I’m done with Audi. I’ve been a loyal Audi customer and driver since 2002, but the maintenance and repair cost charges are too freaking much. (Why, yes, I brought my car in for scheduled maintenance today, and just got a call detailing a bunch of stuff that needs to be fixed, and how much it will cost, how could you tell?)

Co-worker while back bought a used Mercedes AMG.

He thought it was a good deal.

Until he got a quote for doing the front brakes.

Over $2k.

I can do the front brakes on my truck in a couple hours and less than $150 if I turn the rotors.

If I'm lazy, I can have my favorite shop do them for around $250.

My Sprinter van is price enough but the motor hasn't been touched and the brakes are easy.

unfortunately I have neither the tools nor the space nor the skills to do my own brakes.

I hate taking my car in. I know how to do most of the mechanical work. The new electronics you're tied to somewith the right tools to connect to the computer.

I no longer really have the time to do my own work, and I can afford to have it done.

Same with home repairs, I can fix anything around the house. Hate paying someone to do it... but having someone come in and do it is just easier sometimes.

I did build my own deck last summer, 3 weekends with the boys and saved about $10k in labor. I'm glad I did it last summer, lumber is way up in price.
