Yeah, some people are just poor losers and have nothing better to do than harass Miles.

Talk about taking the internet too seriously. lol

Another thing is you realize the difference between exerted energy and consumed energy as well, correct?

We all know convertibles weigh more than coupes regardless of what engine is in them.
Mango...so are you watching the game? You know, I don't know who's playing...I think the Ravens...read reference to them, but don't know what city they're from. That's probably a bad sign that I don't know, isn't it?

Anywhooo...so I'm guessing this post is to Miles who I surmise you had a disagreement with over weight or something.

Having mildly been at both of you over the years, and knowing both of you because of the years, I'm just going to suggest that you both are really smart, know tons, aren't always right, and you both have done tons of good for those around you. Did you guys know that there was about 2 years in my life when I was thinking of becoming a Rabbi? True story.

Also, because you're both really smart and technically oriented, your language here tends to be very precise and exacting, and both of you...'all' of you 'engineering types' easily find imprecision around you and want to fix it up. I'm like that. I can notice a picture hanging 1mm down on a corner from a great distance.

From me to both of you, honestly, and no disrespect intended at all...we're evidently stuck in this place together for a while because of our love of machines and fixing problems and helping people. Evidently, you and me and all of ngc I know are really nice very odd people. You should get along better and work problems better. That said, I'm hypocritical in saying anything I know, because there are two people I really hate IRL and I will never talk to them if I can possibly avoid it.

I see the real bickering around here and I'm reminded of my sons fighting when they would play videogames together. It's silly stuff you get sucked up into and it doesn't do anyone any good. Can't we all just get along, except for the Latinos of course. Bwahahahahaha...bad racist joke to break the tension.

And Miles and all your ngc cronies who know a lot about cars, I wish we'd see more of you in General!

BTW, ngc, if you didn't know, I'm currently one point ahead of Kalim in the poll for 'the greatest fanatic of all time.' If you haven't voted yet, you should. There's no way I should be ahead of him in the poll...so show your support.

I am proud that I'm ahead of kpeng, though! I hate scatological humor, unless I'm doing it.

and lol at stalking Miles just to say you I can't put M3 suspension on a non-M because the M3 is 100 pounds heavier. I guess we aren't allowed to let our gas tank vary from full to empty or ever carry a passenger.

It's just as much trouble, especially since it doesn't sleep in the garage.

Dmax posts are still way too long and full of 90% of confusing/irrelevant/bad jokes.

I don't know how kalim finds joy in the very crowded rush hour train of thought.

lol.
I wanted an exhaust right away, but you convinced me to hold off.
I still want E30 subframe tabs welded after you do Nate's.
Also want to build tube frame race car, but we haven't come to a consensus on drive train.

Still, you should be able to disagree with anyone you want about anything, as long as you leave both you and them an 'out' to squirm out of...if needed.

"But, Tim, I only asked him if he sucked my beagles penor, I didn't accuse him of anything."

See, Miles? It's easy.
They do it in the British Parliament all the time!

That post of mine took a while to write I see!

Since you brought Flash into the mix, I understand the grudge was brought on by something different, and that is different...and she has a sharp tongue, I've seen.

People think and say really stupid things sometimes. We all have. You've had advantages others haven't had. When people say nasty stupid things, I tend to get sad rather than angry, but I remember that they don't think what I think. Poor things!

Jesvs!

Daily reminder that Ray Lewis killed two people, paid off their families and had his friends take the blame.
