Unless he's trying to take the part off just to clean it. Otherwise, he could just smash it apart and take some vise-grips to the fastener.

Thanks for all the suggestions, I was hoping cleaning the IAC valve would solve the weird idling problems. Ill try to put heat on it and use a flathead screwdriver tomorrow.

Are you using an allen key style tool to get them off or actual sockets/ratchets?
I used a screwdriver with a T8 bit at first, the allen keys can't grip the screw.

Shouldn't be too hard to take it off but it's a pain since the intake manifold and throttle body are all one piece.

The head is already fucked by the looks of it, and there's a lot of rubber/plastic near there that looks like it won't appreciate being torched.

I recall there being a thread in here about the Hostess twinkies.
If anyone is interested the hostess ding dongs and cupcakes are on sale for $2.50 at Walmart. That is the cheapest I've ever seen them.
Even cheaper than the USA.

Fixed for you.

Instead of testing in Mountain View Cali, they need to test this system in Richmond before fully passing the safety check off list.

Cartwheeling Spider Discovered | I Fucking Love Science




A new species of spider has been discovered in Morocco, and it’s quite the gymnast. Cebrennus rechenbergi, which lives in the sand desert Erg Chebbi, is the first species of spider documented to project itself across the sand through cartwheel-like motions. The discovery has been published in the journal Zootaxa.

A similar tumbleweed style spider has been previously described, the golden rolling spider, but this spider is restricted in its agility since it is only able to roll down hills. The arachnid acrobat C. rechenbergi in contrast can propel itself off the ground and initiate “flic-flac” jumps that allow it to travel both along flat ground and uphill. Impressively, this bizarre skill allows the spider to move twice as fast as if it were walking, around two meters per second, and uses it as a getaway card when potential predators approach.

This intriguing spider is also quite the architect; it uses its silk threads to build tubular structures in the sand that protect it from the blaring sun and predators.

This spider appears very similar to another species in found in Tunisia called Cebrennus villosus, but spider expert Dr. Peter Jäger was able to deduce that they were indeed different species since they possessed slight differences in their sex organs. “However, the unique mode of locomotion also serves as a criterion to distinguish the species,” says Dr. Jäger.

The discoverer of the spider, bionics expert Ingo Rechenberg, was so impressed by this springy arachnid that he used it as inspiration for a new robot which has been named “Tabbot” after the Berber word for spider, Tabacha. This robot can both walk and somersault along surfaces, and Rechenberg believes that it may be a useful style of locomotion for robots used to explore the bottom of the sea or even Mars.

Check out a YouTube video of the spider and robot in action here (unfortunately the audio is in German):

Imagine if that thing was as big as a tumbleweed. Kill it with fire!! Reminds me of the facehuggers from Aliens, but more frightening in its movement.

Pornhub is planting a tree for every 100 videos you watch



Whenever there’s a national holiday, like Valentine’s Day or the Jewish harvest celebration Sukkot, it’s a safe bet that porn streaming giant Pornhub will be on hand with a vaguely holiday-themed promotional campaign, like unlimited free mobile access or clips of busty young Semitic women doing unspeakable things with a lulav and etrog.

In keeping with this tradition, Pornhub is launching a campaign to celebrate Arbor Day. The website is offering to plant a tree for every 100 videos watched. The title of the campaign? “Pornhub Gives America Wood.” (Get it?)

According to the (SFW) website for Pornhub’s campaign, in the week following Arbor Day on April 25, Pornhub is donating one tree for every 100 videos watched in its “big dick” category. “While you’re watching some nice pieces of ash, you’ll also be helping spruce America up! (Bushes are optional),” the website says.

Although Pornhub is keeping a running tally of how many trees it’ll plant so far—as of now, the number is at more than 10,000, if the campaign’s page is to believed—it’s unclear where the trees will be planted, or what environmental organization the company plans to work with. (Pornhub’s PR director says they’re currently considering one of three).

But whether or not Pornhub’s dreams of saving the planet through well-endowed studs will actually come to fruition, with this latest initiative, perhaps the website is planting the seeds (wordplay!) for a larger demonstration of its commitment to environmentalism. Think an NBC-esque initiative where Pornhub exclusively features green-themed entertainment, or fossil fuel divestment campaign ads popping up before videos.

Either way, how hilarious would it be if a hundred years from now, we could tell our children and grandchildren that a streaming hardcore porn website was singlehandedly responsible for stopping global warming?

How to go about telling your coworker he stinks in a nice/discreet way? This new guy just got hired and I can't bear the smell. It's pretty bad that when he talks to me, I need to be a couple feet away from him lol

What's the best way to remove some concrete 2.5'x4'x6" reinforced with rebar? A jackhammer? A sledgehammer isn't cutting it.

I hit a deer the other night. I was reading through the ICBC site, and according to it, hitting an animal is considered a comprehensive claim. I thought that a claim that involves hitting an animal doesn't carry a deductible, am I imaging that? I might buy a new hood/headlight from the wrecker rather than claiming it.

You're just imagining the no deductible. If you have comprehensive insurance, it will be covered - after you pay your deductible.

Deer can do a lot of damage - make sure you check your frame and rad supports for straightness.

Where to grab a roll of the thin, doubled sided 3M tape for re-attching car emblems?

Looked at Canadian Tire last time I was there, although they had some 3M moulding tape, which would have worked, it was way too thick. Sure I could cut thinner strips, but I know a thinner roll exisits lol.

I'm sure Lordco has it, but don't feel like getting dry raped in the ass, and paying double for a roll of tape. I know I've seen it before, I just can't remember where lol

I could order online, but would rather pick it up locally... sooner than later.

Yeah, I'm pretty sure it's a comprehensive claim and you'd have to pay a deductible, although it shouldn't raise your premiums. If you have a $500 deductible or no comp. coverage, diy'ing it might be best. However, if you're covered and have a $300 deductible and more damage than a hood and headlight, claiming it might be a better option. I'm sure the parts cost isn't going to be much but if you have to start pulling and painting, you'd come out ahead just going through ICBC.
