Movies and TV shows that use Roman numerals at the end to indicate when it was made. Infuriated me until I got the stop action button on the newer TV, I usually have to be fast though to catch it the end. I'm a big history and dates person. Always thought the film industry thought they were being "artsy" by using Roman numerals as opposed to Arabic numerals where you don't have to think about what you are looking at to understand it. I have to admit I'm pretty good at Roman numbers now.

If there is one thing that's makes me  :_shudder_Emoticon , it's my daughter's Nissan Quest 2004.  She came in and said it wouldn't start.   :censored: !  It took awhile to crank but it did start.  Probably the swearing at it helped.  Took my scanner out and ran a check of the codes and it called out camshaft sensor bank 1.  Where the  :censored: is bank 1?  Did a little searching and of course it's towards the back of the engine compartment nigh on inaccessible.  It couldn't be bank 2, that's too  :censored: ing easy.  On the positive side, Advance Auto had the part.  I decided to get two as the other one was probably on it's way out as well.  Also figured to learn how to install it on the easy side, bank 2.  Couldn't get the  :censored: ing connector off!  Took me an hour of tinkering and looking at youtube vids to figure it.  I hate  :censored: ing Nissans.  I'll get the rear bank in the morning when it's cooler outside and the engine is cold.  I'm glad it broke down in my driveway rather than some other place, though.

If you hate Nissan electrical connectors, you would loath VW type(s). They use several different types, each more difficult than the next based on the impossibility of being accessed.
Drives me crazy.

Nissan. Shift expectations.

Have your expectations been shifted?

Not really, I always thought they were crap.  Told my daughters not to buy them.  They did...  Dad get's stuck with fixing the pieces of crap.  I could say no, but I'm their dad, it's what I do.  At least one of them went to Honda after her Sentra died at 150k miles.  And now the daughter with the Quest wants to know about Hyundais.  I remember that KIA was crap back in the early 2000s and I think Hyundai is better than Kia for the most part.  It never ends.

I've got a Kia Optima that so far has been a great car. Love it. Just picked up a Mazda CX-5 after having great experiences owning Mazda's in the past.

When speaking of a 10 times increase, people sa a 10 FOLD increase. 10 fold would actually be a 1024 times increase.

Phelan, California (CNN)Of all the elements they must battle in a wildfire, firefighters face a new foe: drones operated by enthusiasts who presumably take close-up video of the disaster.

Five such "unmanned aircraft systems" prevented California firefighters from dispatching helicopters with water buckets for up to 20 minutes over a wildfire that roared Friday onto a Los Angeles area freeway that leads to Las Vegas.

Helicopters couldn't drop water because five drones hovered over the blaze, creating hazards in smoky winds for a deadly midair disaster, officials said.

The North Fire torched 20 vehicles on Interstate 15 and incited panic among motorists who fled on foot on the freeway Friday. The wildfire continued to burn uncontrollably Saturday, scorching 3,500 acres with only 5% containment in San Bernardino County, officials said.

Drones hovering over wildfires is a new trend in California, and on Saturday, fire officials condemned the operators of "hobby drones," as officials labeled them. It was unclear Saturday whether authorities would launch an investigation into the five drones.

"Fortunately, there were no injuries or fatalities to report, but the 15 to 20 minutes that those helicopters were grounded meant that 15 to 20 minutes were lost that could have led to another water drop cycle, and that would have created a much safer environment and we would not have seen an many citizens running for their lives," said spokesman Eric Sherwin of the San Bernardino County Fire Department.

All of those should require a flying permit or licence, they can then be track after being destroyed and their owners delt with appropriately.
