The joke was out of line. Comedians go too far sometimes, then they want to complain about being censored. I wonder how far back that simmering feud goes.

The Habanero is straight-gauge Ti so it's not an issue. I almost think that it's SAFER to clamp the TT than the seatpost which is crabon fiber and could assplode. So in this case, I am pretty sure it's ok to clamp the top tube. I understand that may still be a trigger to others so I will try to be sensitive.

Not if you are riding, "Straight-gauge". Not that there's anything wrong with that....

I'm now almost 5 hours post procedure and no improvement was noted. This was not the answer. I'm not sure what is next but I think my options are getting more undesirable.

It may have been but not far enough for assault and battery.

I went for a colonoscopy some years ago, and the doctor's assistant during the procedure was drop-dead good looking. All I could think of was "why now?"

Certainly was battery:Although the statutes defining battery will vary by jurisdiction, a typical definition for battery is the intentional offensive or harmful touching of another person without their consent. Under this general definition, a battery offense requires all of the following:
  • intentional touching;
  • the touching must be harmful or offensive;
  • without the consent from the victim.

Quite frankly, I wouldn't be surprised if it was all staged for attention seeking purposes.

Weird Saturn problem. I started it like normal, thought it caught but it did not. Tried starting again, cranked but no catch. Let it rest a couple minutes, same problem. Tried again a few minutes later, and it started.

I drove it to the mechanic and will ask him to look at it tomorrow, and it may have simply been some water in the fuel line, but any of the car guys have ideas??

It has never had this problem before.

That sounds like when somebody's dog attacks your dog, and they say, "He's never done that before!"

Not good. I take it results were to be more immediate in nature?

See my earlier comment - when you get a situation like you did on number three, you don't have to preserve what you know. You can pick a word that checks a lot of the missing letters, even though that word can't be the answer. As so:

I'd be surprised if he pressed charges, he was dead wrong.

The "few minutes later" almost sounds like it somehow got flooded, but that would involve more before that. Weather can't be too bad; how's the battery though?

You realize, don't you, that 5/6 is not much better than 6/6.

Spot on.

Those had an issue with the coolant temp sensor reading incorrectly, thus causing the ECM to think it's colder than it really is. This will richen the mixture just like pulling a choke closed.

Probably wouldn't crank if it was the battery. Might be a fuel pump issue.

I think this is where a not-very-good mechanic will tell you, "Yeah, that year of car, they'll do that."

I'm not bragging; I'm trying to help people not get stuck and fail. That happened to my mother recently with... I think the word was WATCH? She had ?ATCH and failed to find the right first letter in time out of BCHPMWL.

Bragging - I just said I'm dumber than everyone thinks. :foo:

I'll have to give that some thought. But coming up with a word that uses as many letters as possible of all the ones you want to test, while actually being a real 5-letter word, is almost as much of a puzzle.

Could be. He could check the connector and see if it's green and fuzzy. Watch the data and manipulate the connector and tap the sensor. Check for codes.
Could also be the fuel pump which would be a lot harder to diagnose unless it acts up while being checked.

Rare I've seen a connector issue on those, but I live in the arid high desert. Coolant Temp Sensor is a true pattern fail on those.

I will update Saturn diagnosis tomorrow after I hear from mechanic. It’s possible everything will be fine. Battery seems strong though.
