Questions that cant be answered

Postby Username » 12 Jun 2018, 5:19am

Such questions include:

Does the universe have a limit?
Does human stupidity have no limit?
How far does a brand new Bugatti go without any engine oil whatsoever?

Well here's what happens when you sort of mix questions 2 and 3 together:

and for those that really are stupid, that really was a brand new second hand Bugatti Veyron.........minus some oil.


and if you really hate cars (aswell as being a bit thick):

The moral of the topic.......intelligent people ride bikes!

I found the latter quite informative

We run a diesel and a petrol car, and after my Sister in law filled her diesel with petrol twice, at some cost have a large reminder sticker on the cap of the tank

Many years ago a colleague of mine, who happened also to be a neighbour, kept a Lotus (yes I know what the letters L.O.T.U.S. stand for - I didn't push it too far.... :twisted: ) He was a bit of a petrolhead. In fact there were quite a lot of petrolheads in our street back then - another Lotus, couple of Porsches, and a souped-up (and I mean really souped-up - baked-beans-exhaust and all) Escort... And the guy I bought our house from owned a Maserati. They've all gone now, the street is now populated with citizens owning - er - 'sensible' cars (LR discoverys, etc. etc.... ) :twisted:

Anyway - back to my Lotus-owning neighbour. One day said Lotus was stolen from in front of their house. The thieves, not content with their newly-acquired set of wheels per se, saw fit to add a bit of 'spice' to their joyride. They did this by someone crawling under the car and removing the sump plug and letting all the oil drain out. One can only suppose that they wanted to experience the thrill and clatter of an oil-less engine. Whatever: the Lotus was later recovered by the Police abandoned many miles away, after the engine had seized - beyond repair. My colleague was not best pleased....

It so happened that, after we hadn't seen each other for many years, the self-same ex-colleague and his wife dropped in on us a few months ago. Of course age has taken its toll on them - as it has on us. I observed that they turned up in a somewhat more modest set of wheels. But he's still every inch a petrolhead - they now live near Silverstone, which is a locale where - as I understand it - petrolheads frequently assemble...

We reminisced about lots of things, but the escapade of the ill-fated Lotus didn't figure in the conversation... :lol:

How high does a fly fly when a fly flies ever so high?
