  1. Head to the nearest surgeon and have yourself sterilized. We don’t need your DNA in the gene pool.

      Likely won't still be breathing long enough for that to continue being an issue.

    Be generous. Share it with your close relatives.

  4. Ha, I had that happen to me once many decades ago. Broken heater core. Repairing that made me realize that the very first part of the car the factory puts in is the heater core. If it ever happens again I'm just going to plug the hoses and live without heat.

    1. I tried that. It didn't take long to realize that replacing the heater core is worth the trouble. And no, you can't run an electric heater with an inverter.

    2. That made me laugh. One of the things we used to say where I worked was that they "hung the damn thing from the factory ceiling and built the rest of the machine around it."

  5. Looks like a first generation Ford Super Duty. Not a terrible job on those trucks, sits in a housing right behind the glove box. Worst part of that job is getting the hoses off, quick connects don't come off easy. Run a ground wire to the new core and it shouldn't need replaced again.

  6. Replacing the heater core is one of the more frustrating jobs I've encountered. Had one that required taking out the entire dash. Why they build vehicles with "eventually fail" parts that are inaccessible is a mystery to me.
