What's the deal with the fuel rail though?

Shouldn't be worried about ice buildup here! I learned from a guy who was there with a 325IS that there are a group of scavengers that come in and pick those cars clean taking one part from a set of anything. For example one wheel out of a set of four. That way if you need it then you have to pay them to get the whole set. Whole subculture. Ridiculous. And apparently they like to take salt to the junkyard with them

I was talking about the saltshaker laid on top of it. You need some sleep Chad! It was at the junkyard this afternoon. In fairness to you Ken knew where I was, looking for injectors at the local yard.

I just saw it sitting on top of that Block and thought it was really weird.

That's the valve cover

The block is another foot below.

They are clearly related to Eddie Murphy’s dad and engine parts taste better with salt.

Siri wasn't grasping valve cover and I was driving. Apologize for using "block". The generic term "motor" is what I should have said to her. She also capitalized block but I didn't feel like correcting it.

Can't win today. Second correction, not currently in motion. Driving in the sense of sitting in the car whilst waiting on pizza.

I have (fortuantely) never had to pay money back. This year's return isn't amazing, but enough to buy some fun stuff for the BMW.

Eesh Karl, you already got your W-2 with enough time to do them and file? Just got mine this week, still waiting on Brittany's. Then we get to do all the self employment fun too....yay.

I bumped my allowances way up after the girls. I'd rather have to pay a bit at the end than give them free use of my money all year long. I'm expecting to still get a small refund though.

I received my W-2 this morning and did my taxes in about 15 minutes. I don't have any special claims, deductions, etc., so doing my taxes is a very simple affair.

Oh. 1040EZ and done huh? I miss those days. I think our taxes were over 15 pages last year, plus stubs and receipts.
