I keep wondering why people insist on advertising to all drivers that their children are mentally handicapped. They keep saying "SLOW CHILDREN AT PLAY".
Or what happens when they grow up - SLOW MEN WORKING.

Good one, Warrl. Good to see one of the smaller bits make it out - we crank out a lot of these but few of them make it here.

I finished book one and realized I was relieved to finally be done with it.

The story is intriguing behind it, but I wonder if the guy asked too much for it, and just decided to keep it? Strewth that is the ugliest thing I've seen with a license pla...

Catawampus, mate - the best place to shop for a quality bottle jack for lifting cars is in the SUV section of your local scrapyard. Personally, I have screw jacks in my antiques (looks like a bottle jack but works off a bevel drive and a screw). SUVs have the most annoying lifting requirements, and ...
