    Dude, that DOES suck. :(

    You could order some ammo online though! I bet they could ship it to you in a couple of days.

    if the thing is just leaking slghtly,,,

    try "bars leaks" if you can find it

    BUT DO NOT, i repeat DO NOT put the whole jar in, put about 1/4 of the jar and see if it stops, if it doesnt after a couple hours of running, try 1/4 jar more but after that no more

    the stuff will clog up your engine and ruin it for good if youre not REAL careful

    use the above procedure with ANY radiator stop product

    ive heard oatmeal works too

    good luck

    sorry, can't help you with the ammo problem though...

    :D

    Well, I haven't worked in three years, I'm thirty-five, live with my parents, have no friends or social life, can't afford to move and can't find work because I have "no experience" -- and no one wants to give me a chance to get it. I think I win on this "My life sucks" contest....

    Been there, done that, got the hammer marks on the skull to prove it.

    Trust me, it does get better.

    It just takes time.

    If you think it's bad now, just wait till next time. Your next bad experience will make this one seem like a piece of cake. Life is fun ain't it?

    Can't recommend anything to help with the radiator or the $$$.

    I can recommend a fix for your mental transmission.
    Put on the tennis shoes and some shorts and grab a water bottle and start walking. Some times 30 minutes will do wonders.
    Sometimes 3 hours is about right.

    When you get home and sit down you will be surprised how easy it is to focus on some fixs rather than on what's temporarily busted with your car or your life.
    Cheapest medication going.

    I'm not the overly religious type, but I always try to remember that God never gives you more than you can handle.

    Johnny it doesn't matter what the heck ever happens to you, no matter how bad you think it is, somebody, somewhere, is wishing they had it as good as you. Believe me.

    Ah, Mastrogiacomo;

    You're a woman after my own heart. I'll see ya on the domestic situation and raise you on the SO one-she thinks I'm nuts, she may be right, and she's 600 miles away! (sigh) Yeah, Johnny, sorry , but just wait till you get some real grownup problems. I'm always in favor of the engineering solution myself, even for social problems:) , but it doesn't always work for them. Solve the technical problem with a technical solution; I think Selfdfenz has the right idea for the wetware!;)

    Edit: Oh, forgot to say, "Do as I say, not as I do!":D :D

    "I'm not the overly religious type, but I always try to remember that God never gives you more than you can handle." What makes me feel a little better is a line from "Lethal Weapon" that someone reminded me of recently. The scene between Danny Glover and Gibson's character where Glover complains "God must hate me," to which Gibson replies "Hate him back!" :D

    A co-worker reminded me of a saying just last night when I was on a rant about something. "I was sad I had no shoes, until I met a man with no feet." At least you got feet.

    Feh, driving is overrated. According to THR's Tamara nothing but a bunch of latte-sipping, cell phone jabbering, SUV-piloting nimrods like El Tejon out there anywho.

    Stay home, do some dry work. Later, call her and have her bring over Chinese and a DVD.;)

    Oh, to make this sorta-firearms-related:

    Was it Jeff Cooper who said, "You fight with your mind; a gun is just a tool."

    Sounds like a good time for a part-time job: no fun giving up the time, but the money can prove useful.

    An understatement, yes? I could use a full and part-time job. Maybe move out before my parents die or I do....:uhoh: An employer asked me once, "What did your parents want you to be when you grew up." I answered, "Gainfully employed and married...."

    Yep, faced that myself.

    So I said to hell with it and stole his bicycle.

    Hey Johnny, cars break, fact of life.

    Don't break your heart by selling your guns.

    Get a grip and relax.

    Others wish they had your problems. Pushing a shopping cart and smelling like dead fish isn't exactly life in paradise. Having worked (professionally) with folks who do this has really lowered my standards for decency (so long as you work or are trying to work, you're OK in my book. Note: exceptions granted for retirees and full time students).
