YEsterday - the T5 made multiple trips to the hardware store to get hardware for my snowblower, where I also learned that augers are chiral, or handed. They have to go on the right way or you get a snow packer instead of a snow blower

This is beyond hilarious when you consider that one of my professional lives is selling $500,000 instruments that tell people that their chemicals have the right 'handedness'

MVS fun fact: Everyone in MVS has a chemical with handedness in the kitchen - Free one year membership to MVS for the first correct answer. No chemists need apply.

Too funny
Another fun fact - that snow blower will likely outlive all members of this forum provided regular maintenance is always performed =)
Wisdom requires knowledge as a prerequisite, but knowledge can be developed due to a lack of wisdom.
In order to learn how to fix something, you must first learn how to break it.

Due to some oil getting spilled on my FCP return box, I now have a brand new Mann, not opened in dirty box, cartridge oil filter for a 99-00 P80 (and possibly other models). Mann Oil Filter HU819x free to good home, I have no use for it. E Showell, abscate and kahl have first dibs to balance the karma debts. Will hold for 96 hours, after that it goes to first user to PM me a mailing address. Happy Holidays!
Free oil filter still up for grabs

Bought a little more time with my broken right turn signal. You can barely see the “fix.”
