This is what pisses me off.

Hmmnnn, "baby boomers" are a problem mate? Really? Last week two "millennials" murdered 31 people at 2 different locations in the US, and seriously wounded another 50, but baby boomers are the problem? Yep, definitely some hypocrisy on display here, from the deep confines of the cow shed, methinks............ ;D
That truck driver should spend a lot of time in jail for this.

So the wife and I get through (for now) the interior house painting. Then new carpet. Great! Yeah except later that week we take a trip to one of the local beaches here. I get tar on my foot, my grand daughter gets tar on her flip flop. Those two things were discovered soon enough. The one thing we didn’t discover was a glob of tar the bottom of the beach towel tote bag...which my wife set onto the carpet when we got home. Two hours later when it was time to wash the towels, she picked up the bag and the tar stuck... to the bag and the carpet. AAARRRRG!
Now that did piss me off, but not her fault, just unfortunate.
Hope you got a spare piece..sop is cut out a circle or square, replace....becomes invisible.

Yeah, the installation company was kind enough to have one of their “aces” swing by and um...do a repair. As I watched the carpet professional, he took that circular cutter thing and placed it right over the spot. He then tries to turn it, but it won’t turn. He lifts it up, looks at it and tries again but it won’t turn. So I happened to notice one of the two cutting blades is in backwards, so the cutting edges are facing each other.
I said to the guy, “Uhhh is one of those blades in backwards?”.
A bit embarrassed, he looks and then he mutters, “How’d that happen?”.
He flips the blade and cuts the section out, replaces the piece with an exact match, but the cut out was now compromised and too much glue was used at the seam. It’s really noticeable. It’s horrible.
Got yet another call in to the manager, and I’m wondering what he’ll do next...send another “ace”?

Dog owners who will not attend to their barking animals in the middle of the night!  Makes me want to go penetrate its skull with some elemental Pb at high velocity or give a beating to the owners. Owner across street got a pit bull and it has been barking since 3:30am and it is now 4:15am.  How can they sleep through that?

The Gypsy Jokers have been running around Washington for decades. I used to know several of them, they weren't to bad for hard core bikers. I used to swap bikes with one of them back in the 80's when I had my 82' V45 Sabre. He loved that bike but couldn't let his fellow gang members know. ;D

  One of my neighbors joined a bike club. they wore jackets and all, his said prospect and hers said property of, At some point he decided to bail out of the club and was chased out of a local bar by a guy with a gun. They had to leave town after that. I guess they thought it was a social club.

My dad's cousins (2 brothers) were members of the Gipsy Jokers in Sydney in the 70's but had a falling out with the club. I don't know what it was all about, they were two very tough individuals, Vietnam vets etc, but were in hiding in a little country town for fear that they were gonna get a 3 o'clock doornock.

Most 1% clubs have a vote in/vote out membership policy, but being voted out can include some pretty nasty penalties. Much like the mafia. ;D
I was feeling sorry for myself because I couldn't afford new bike boots, until I met a man with no legs.

So I said, "Hey mate, you haven't got any bike boots you don't need, do you?"

OMG's can really suck the fun out of motorcycling can't they.

Then again, riding a supersport bike in Arizona automatically makes you a felon.

They sound like a fearsome crowd Spotty, I've just started my own MC, I've named it "Sons of Apathy", let me know if you'd like to join, I need a strong Sergeant at Arms to beat back the throngs of prospects who'll want to join my band of rogues! And yes, there will be cake. Probably. ;D

why don't they use engine vacuum?always been reliable forever?whats with a #$%*ing vacuum pump?whats its got a wild over lap cam?does the turbo cause positive pressure?that #$%* #$%*s me off!
Dave, it gets curiouser and curiouser. ::) They use engine vacuum in non boost conditions, and the pump during boost conditions. When the brake problem happens, the motor is idling, so should be providing the vacuum. Now, there are a couple of common problems with these Chevy Eco-tech motors; for one, there is a PCV check-valve in the intake manifold, which is a dime size silicon disk with a barbed tit in the center to hold it in place. Seems it's very common for that bit to get sucked into the intake and spit out through the exhaust. Once that happens, boost gets fed into the crank-case, which in turn blows a "rupture" disk in the valve cover. Neither of these parts, the intake manifold or valve cover are serviceable, and must be replaced when they fail.
Now it starts to get odd, at least from what I've read on the Sonic forums. My only symptoms, other than the brakes, are a "chirping" noise when the motor is idling. This seems to always be caused be a ruptured valve cover disk which causes a vacuum leak, but my PCV valve in the intake appears to be present. This *may* be covered under warranty, but the warranty expires in 8 days. Ain't gonna make it to Bonneville, and that REALLY PISSES ME OFF!!! >:( >:(   
Don't fix it if it ain't broke!
