Living the dream!

Actually, this whole life thing is kind of a big ol shitstorm, isn't it? We work our asses off doing stuff so other people can get rich, for as long as we can, then we die. I guess life (for the "lucky" ones) amounts of just working, your entire life, and is hopefully punctuated with moments of joy.

Actually, the happiest guy I know is a dude I went to school with. He has a job, but his life revolves around when he's not at work. He doesn't have much money, and lives one pay day to the next, but finds beauty and solace in his world every day.

Like honestly, I chose a different path and am mostly content with life, but would love to be in his shoes sometimes. I have a good paying job, that affords me and my family everything we want/need, but sometimes (often) I'm drawn to the idea of saying "fuck it" and just selling everything and living out of a van, and going where the road/life takes us.

I live vicariously through my friend, who sends me pictures daily of whatever hike he's on, or whatever campsite he's got set up, watching the sun set on some picturesque view of the Rocky Mountains.

I guess it's one of those "either play the game, or don't" scenarios.

Sigh

I can see how it becomes a hole that's impossible to get out of. I hope things are better for you, now.

Is it actually an achievement? I mean, at the end of the day, it's quite literally a hollow gesture. We could've passed legislation that actually HELPS minorities just as easily, but the track record of Biden/Harris are the complete opposite. I mean, it's legislation no politician is their right mind would oppose, this day in age. It's a farce.... "Look what Biden/Harris did for you.... Well... Those of you that are not in prison due to policies they've spent their entire careers putting in place"

No, I'm genuinely curious. ;-)

What I mean is, has working at a fast food restaurant inspired you to seek training, or education That would lead to a job or career that pays a livable wage. It's generally understood that skillless jobs such as fast food do not generally pay a wage that will support an adult.

Did this motivate you to develop a skill, or get an education that led to a job with better pay?

Also, I broke the jaws in the first tap wrench I used, so I'm not sure a torx bit would've survived either, honestly. This took a pretty large cheater pipe to break loose.

Tried that. No dice.

The annoyance is going to a hardware store.... I wish the selection for metric hardware was at least comparable to the SAE stuff. Or ... There was no SAE stuff, and it was just metric.

COMMENT 10d ago

Yeah well ... They done fucked it up with one that didn't fit. Lol

COMMENT 10d ago

Yeah, I know. It's a common misnomer, here. I seriously wish we used the metric system.

I too, got the nod from the mechanic gods today. Apparently some folks don't realize there are standard, AND metric Allens. (plug was already partially rounded out)

It's 68mph whis is about 110kmh. Either way, "highspeed" is relative to the location, and surface you're riding on. 60mph may not seem fast on a big open highway, but it's pretty goddamn fast on a whooped ohh dirt road. Or... This one.
