    I was recently involved in a fender-bender with my brand new car. I went to the body shop the dealer recommended (because they do not have a body shop) and I needed a new front bumper. They had to keep my car an extra day because they were having a difficult time matching the paint. When I went to pick it up the front bumper color was close, but you can easily tell in sunlight that it does not match the rest of my car. The bumper is lighter in color and the metallic is different. The body shop told me that they could not get it to match any better because the bumper is plastic and the car is metal (but the back bumper matches?). So am I being unrealistic to expect my repair to be able to match my car?

    Spain had its El-Cid, Serbia had its Karadzic..These brave men saw the despicable threat the fringes of Christian Europe were facing and they acted accordingly. Once we English had real men like Lionheart. But alas we have limp wristed half men in girls blouses representing us. Would England and Europe benefit in uniting and removing this scourge, this ancient enemy of ours once and for all? My maid has sounded the gong meaning tea is about to be served. A tad late as the Welsh Rugby boys after the match kindly invited me to a public house.

    I bought a 05 Toyota 4runner with 200,000 miles not having any problems. When I checked my transmission fluid for the first time it was it was dark brown. 50k miles later I decided to change the fluid for good measure. Online I found post stating that this is an indication that my transmission fluid is breaking down / needs to be replaced. I Found A really good post about flushing out all the fluid in my car. I didn't use the Toyota brand SW fluid but the stuff I used said it was compatible with Toyota SW. It took about 3 gallons of fluid to flush it out good and now my transmission fluid is clean and redish pink, I told my dad what I had done and he did not approve. He believes you should never change the transmission fluid.

    If you can see from the picture, the outer portions of the tread have bulged out, causing appearance of a valley on inner portion of tread, see drawing which shows what i mean. The deformity is present all around the circumference & only on tread/not side wall.Tire is a used Lexani LX Thirty 305/40 R22 PerformanceTire but is now the 2nd one which has developed same issue. Got both used tires from same place, they mounted and inflated, and pretty sure the 1st one was the same brand and batch. It's an 02 Tahoe and the placement of tire is on front driver side (both times). wondering if it's just defective tires or could it be caused by a bad mounting job or issues with my rim. Overinflation sounds like a good culprit from other answers. I'll test tire pressure and update. I do plan on getting new tires on all 4 but will fix alignment issues 1st, replace pitman & idler arms(other 3 tires are fine, never bulged, just typical wear u get on sides when its time for an alignment ) so will replace this tire before then and make sure I use different brand but if same issue develops, I'm really gonna be puzzled. Hopefully just bad luck/plus overinflation. It's not so much that inner tread is wearing as much as it is that both tires have developed same unusual bulging that has grown out and deformed the tire. The bulging on 1st tire was more pronounced & developed within 2 days during long trip across state. 2nd tire developed same deformity within 2 months in normal commute conditions.

There have been no warning signs of other electrical things.

  • How long would it take us to travel one light year?

    Best answer: that would depend on how fast we were going. the speed of light is about 300,000 kilometers per second. or 1080000000 kilometers per hour. 25920000000 kilometers per day. 9460800000000 kilometers per year, this is the definition of a light year. btw the earthlike planet is 20 light years away, not 50 ... show more
    Best answer: that would depend on how fast we were going.

    the speed of light is about 300,000 kilometers per second. or 1080000000 kilometers per hour. 25920000000 kilometers per day. 9460800000000 kilometers per year, this is the definition of a light year.

    btw the earthlike planet is 20 light years away, not 50

    if you went 100 kph (kilometers per hour) it would take you 94608000000 hours or 10800000 years to go one light year.

    at the speed of sound _430.29 m/s, 1549. kph it would take 697204 years to travel one light year.

    the speed of a vehicle in low earth orbit is about mach 25, even at this speed it would take 40,000 years to travel one light year.

    so we need to invent some more powerful engines if we plan on going any significant distance outside of our solar system.

    Background: I am 19 and I have had my license since the day I turned 16, I have shown responsibility by having 5 different extremely nice cars and trucks, all of which would normally draw a lot of police attention (custom paint, tinted windows, and fast / bright colored cars). I bought every single car myself and paid in cash. I never even got pulled over, and I have never been in an accident. I am a full time engineering student and work 20 hours a week at a bank, I am a "good kid" and don't use any drugs or alcohol. As you can see i am very responsible. Question: How do I convince my parents to let me get a motorcycle? I have been trying to convince them since 6 months after I turned 16. They say they trust me, but don't trust other drivers to not hit me or pull out in front of me. I live at home and they say that I cant have a bike until after I move out, not for my safety, but because my mom does not want to sit at home and worry about me making it home. I have tried for a 250-350cc dual sport (dirt bike type) bike, as well as a small sport bike (Kawasaki Ninja 250). Neither of these are fast by any means (My car I am driving now has a top speed of over 160mph). So how do I convince my mom that I wont get hit by a car? I have already suggested: extra reflectors, neon green / reflective riding gear, extra bright lights, buying a bright colored bike, only being allowed to ride when its light out, call/text her when I leave and get places. I am lost, please help as this is a passion of mine. Thank You
