A doctor, a civil engineer, and a computer scientist were sitting around late one evening, and they got to discussing which was the oldest profession.

The doctor pointed out that according to biblical tradition, God created Eve from Adam's rib. This obviously required surgery, so therefore that was the oldest profession in the world.

The engineer countered with an earlier passage in the Bible that stated that God created order from the chaos, and that was most certainly the biggest and best civil engineering example ever, and also proved that his profession was the oldest profession.

The computer scientist leaned back in her chair, and with a sly smile responded, "Yes, but who do you think created the chaos?"

Due to the current financial situation caused by the slowdown in the economy, Congress has decided to implement a scheme to put workers of 50 years of age and above on early, mandatory retirement, thus creating jobs and reducing unemployment.

This scheme will be known as RAPE (Retire Aged People Early).

Persons selected to be RAPED can apply to Congress to be considered for the SHAFT program (Special Help After Forced Termination).

Persons who have been RAPED and SHAFTED will be reviewed under the SCREW program (System Covering Retired-Early Workers).

A person may be RAPED once, SHAFTED twice and SCREWED as many times as Congress deems appropriate.

Persons who have been RAPED could get AIDS (Additional Income for Dependents & Spouse) or HERPES (Half Earnings for Retired Personnel Early Severance).

Obviously persons who have AIDS or HERPES will not be SHAFTED or SCREWED any further by Congress.

Persons who are not RAPED and are staying on will receive as much SHIT (Special High Intensity Training) as possible.Congress has always prided themselves on the amount of SHIT they give our citizens.

Should you feel that you do not receive enough SHIT, please bring this to the attention of your Congressman, who has been trained to give you all the SHIT you can handle.

The Committee for Economic Value of Individual Lives (E.V.I.L.)

PS - Due to recent budget cuts and the rising cost of electricity, gas and oil, as well as current market conditions, the Light at the End of the Tunnel has been turned off.

Had to be. He bought it from a dealer as a trade-in. The engine compartment looks like it just came from the factory (no corrosion, no rust, no discoloration of anything). Underneath, though, has a good bit of rust. Not as bad as mine, but still. We think it was kept parked on grass.

However, a car that sat that much has its own issues. Like an AC compressor clutch that failed with 19,000 miles on it.

Was it a 3rd or 4th car?
Should be just about broke in.

It's true. Forget history and it will repeat!

Just remember what happened to the Saxons when they invaded England. They split into 5 groups. One group went west and Wessex was born. One went east and Essex was born. One went south and Sussex was born. One group remained where they landed and Middlesex was born. The last group went north and had Nosex, but they all died out.

Replaced the front brakes on my Liberty...

Passenger side

Driver's side

Old crap

Did that after we replaced the AC compressor, evacuated, pulled a deep vacuum, charged...all the good stuff on the bf's cousin's '06 Liberty. The dark green (no idea what the color's called), grey leather interior, EVIC, 4 hi part time - pretty loaded. Only has 19,000 miles on it. He bought it with 16,000 about 6 months ago. Who could put only 16,000 miles on a Liberty in 7 years? I don't get it.

I have to do front brakes before inspection, since they're at 2/32 with a bad rust lip on the rotor. Rears are at 6/32 with the same rust lip, so I'm doing both. Parking brake shoes are supposedly fine. I'll find out when I remove the rear rotors.

Power Stop Evolution ceramic pads (ceramic is OEM spec) with rotors that won't warp with the ceramic pads are in hand....well, the rears are here. The front rotors will be in tomorrow, then I can dig in.

Then on to inspection.

Did the title work and got inspection tags. Inspection is next, but tires were first (never heard of Neptune?). The Jeep slipped in rain, so I bought a set of Yokohama Geolandar A/T-S to put on instead.

I've put almost 200 miles on them, all this past weekend, and I love them. Lots. Got 18.5 mpg even with them in mixed driving. And drove in pouring rain without a single slip.

Got the pine sap off, then my boss paid the wash dude next door to hand wash, wax and buff, vacuum and clean the Jeep.

I went from this

To this

Thanks to simple rubbing alcohol. It dissolves the stuff and didn't damage the clearcoat (thanks BMW forum). Pine sap came from the untreated pine board roof of their garage.
