Addiction LXXVIII

Notices
Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

We have an old first generation wii video game. I cleaned out the corroded batteries in the controllers and now mrs datlas and daughter #2 are going at it with wii table tennis.

I would rather go play space invaders. Or Galaga.

A lot of variables there. If excess fuel isn't going to the cat then it will probably survive, like a fuel injector not delivering fuel. The computer doesn't know why there is a misfire, it just knows the crankshaft is slowing down. There are also false misfires, the computer thinks it is misfiring but it is not. And even bent components or drivetrain parts out of balance.
Some converters are much more durable than others.
Any questions?

Did you provide receipts to prove it's not a fake?

I just picked it cause you can still see part of the ISS in it. Pretty sure it's not Katrina.

3 days 'til the season starts. And I, for one, am just totally excited. 2020 has been so uneventful.

Thank you.

You're still in Tennessee, though.

I don't know exactly where you live. I might be a little closer. My I-40 exit/mile marker is 378 (the Mississippi River being 0).

I'm only 6 miles away from the Mississippi river, so I guess I'm the closest.
