Default Re: 3rd engine failure...getting frustrated

Part of the problem is that the work we refer to as "rebuild" encompasses both what's more accurately called "repair" and what's more accurately called "restore." If I get damaged babbitt and I send my engine to a shop to redo it – and yeah, sure, take a look at the pistons and seals while you're in there – when I get it back, is it "rebuilt?" I think people use the term pretty broadly to describe a wide variety of work at a wide variety of prices.

I think as people get older, they start to lose their intellect. This usually shows in a lack of compassion and an inability to put themselves in other people's shoes and is typically covered by a quote like, "I tell it like it is..." or, "I'm too old to care about what people think."

They are set in their ways...

And I'd talk shit and look down at those folks, but honestly... as I get older, I think my intellect is declining as well. It's something I really want to work on.

I have a buddy that is 77 years old and he's one of the lucky ones... I swear to god, the dude hasn't lost a bit of his patience, compassion, or energy. Bastard.
