My older son missed the shuttle to college -- so now he's going to effectively miss a class.

Dodgy

If he takes a bus from home, which is an option, he'd have to get up at 5am to catch the bus at 5:30 to get to the shuttle stop by 7:10. Or I can drive him and be there in 10 minutes.....

Yes bus service is the suburbs is just that bad.

Yes, he's saving money for a car.

A bicycle??

most trickle chargers are around 1 amp. If your battery is discharged to the point where it won't crank over the engine, you're gonna be waiting a long time...


If the battery is badly discharged - it'd take days to bring it back up...

Hers has 1, 6, 12? At least that's what it says on the thing. Can't hurt to try.

Damn wind is messing up my tea bag hot air balloons. Dodgy

And I can't find my baking soda.

Off to the store here shortly - gonna make "bombs" and rockets with my son. He's decided his rocket will be green: "Blazing Yoshi." I'm a little less original: "Saturn V - Nashville edition."

I'm gonna save the *really* fun homemade explosives for when I'm not in city limits. I doubt Metro's finest would be too thrilled with me making such things with my six year old.

Dear Waze app - please come up with a ghetto free route option. Like, some sorta algorithm taking into account number of drive by shootings and murders per year. I kinda like not having bullet holes in my car. Thanks.

OK.. 12 amp isn't really a trickle charger.. It's almost a real one.... Smile

That would likely get you charged pretty close to full overnight... (unless the battery is completely flat)

My GPS always wants me to take a toll road, even when it's out of the way. I think Garmin gets kickbacks. Dodgy

I used to get to tour the seedier side of Dallas when I was seeing docs at Baylor downtown. Nothing gives me the warm fuzzies quite like bars on the windows of houses and businesses. Undecided

See here they are the bruises some were self-inflicted and some showed up along the way. - JF

Had a GPS tell me once to make an Illegal U-Turn. I think they are all just planning to piss off the human race.

My favorite was having the GPS tell me to cross Lake Ray Hubbard...before that particular road/bridge had been completed. Facepalm

It even showed my car icon moving over the water...my icon is a rubber duck so maybe that was the problem. Undecided
