Look, you could do what he does.

"You mad" almost never means you're actually mad; rather its purpose is to goad you into writing a lot of words that no one will care to read. lol
But you know this already, don't you?

You're lucky I care.

I honestly think the smarter you get, the more it behooves you to humble. At some point you begin to realize how little you know, and further that you don't even know how little you know. Pretending otherwise is just that -- pretense. Maybe? I don't know.

You're so influenced by it, it's impact is now so engrained, you know not where it comes from but it's there. In fact, you're actually a lot more like an old man than older men in some ways...

The solitary emo youth gene in you is strong but we are all products of our history, we simply get to choose which streams of knowledge we consume. You choose math and science over music and fiction.

I'd still bang your sister. Lol J/k no offense I hope... Though I would.
I always find it really entertaining to see what people actually think of me, cause it's rare that people have both the honesty and the words to describe a person.

-I dunno, I don't think I really got much more influence from the engineer type things you mentioned than music. My primary forms of influence were others kids in elementary school, television, and the internet.

-I'd agree with the absurdist, though, not from the Japanese because I have pretty minimal Japanese influence in my upbringing. Mainly the that would be from the engineer/science mindset I've always had and grown to like.

-I like challenging convention, but I probably never made that connection with music because I rarely listen to the words. When I listen to music, I just like to hear cool sounds, and patterns that can set a mood or remind me of a mood. Rarely do I actually listen to the words, or think about them, which is why I'd guess I never connected challenging convention and music.

-I like wearing black and like my peace and quiet but I think that's as far as the emo thing ever went with me. Possibly a little bit of rebellious youth from having parents that could never admit they were wrong even when they made mistakes.

-I chose science and fiction probably, instead of math, music, religion, sports, or politics.

lol, I'm like the unreserved Kalim that's not quite as big, figuratively and physically. My infractions demonstrate the difference of being bigger.

Mango though, he really doesn't know that much. He has no mindset for research, for materials, for judgement, etc... He just kinda reads and repeats the most common views of the forum, whether they be right or wrong.

Good post. I agree.

I don't know if I've become more humble, but learning more has definitely made me more cautious and indefinite with what I say on the forum. I'm much more likely to say something like "I'd think," "It's likely," "It's probably," etc... than "YOUR PROBLEM IS YOUR COOLING SYSTEM, REPLACE NAO!"

Just reading through Mango's cooling thread, I think it's pretty lame for a sticky.

-Mileage is a horrible way to go about changing a lot of that stuff. No, grease will not "dry up" in 60,000 miles. With some people's driving habits, than less than 2 years of driving.
-Why can't you actually diagnose parts instead of blindly replacing them?
-35,000 mile belts? Where the hell did he come up with that number? Belts easily do a lot more than that even in nasty conditions...
-Speaking of numbers, where does he get this information from? His anus? There are no sources to any info.
-He says replace everything, but then he omits some of the cooling system hoses that see full system pressure and connect directly to the block. The hose that exploded on Jay's car is one of those hoses he didn't list anywhere.
-Seriously diagnose stuff, why randomly replace a fan clutch when you can diagnose to see if it's good? How will you know if your new fan clutch is working properly?

the fact that the posts of me responding to him got deleted and his didn't shows and immense amount of favoritism. I said something like "Temper temper chris, attacking other forum members is against forum rules and that will get you banned."
