    I went. Felt unwelcome. The group's creator doesn't like me. People were circle-jerking over the latest Audi or whatever-the-fuck, and ooh look at this photo of the dashboard! I left.

    Good times were had by all.

    I wouldn't know. I vaguely recall we've nastily butted heads before over trivial bullshit, leading to a lifetime of love and kisses forevermore.

    How's your dashboard going? Nice and bling?

    Here's the shocker though - they weren't analogies - they were actually talking about cars! And liking it! :shock:

    I know right, Wtf Central.
    We can even take that down one level further to "all cars are buckets".

    Is that a clever analogy to say I should be working on computers?

    Hitting his thumb with a hammer for a hobby sounds like a less frustrating occupation TBH

    Nah, cars are all about working under them without a hoist and having random shit fall in your eyes - no matter how clean the bastard is.

    Still infinitely better than dealing with printers in any capacity.

    Use a breaker bar to take that stubborn bolt off... Bolt snaps in block...

    The new world of battery brushless ugga duggas means that you need a fucking huge bit of pipe on the end of a breaker bar to beat our new lithium overlords.

    1600nm of torque? oh ok then.

    end result is the same though - you now need a drill. Luckily, they make those in brushless as well.
