Win of the Day

Nearly a month ago I got an oil change and found out I had a brake light out, alongside a dying battery. Instead of paying the shop the requested monies (because I can do a battery and no, you aren’t replacing my upgraded, non-working, LED brakelight with a halogen), I did the battery myself over the next day. For the brake light, I had to order from Amazon, and the replacement had been sitting by the door for what must have been two weeks. Well, long story short, I can’t believe they wanted to charge me $13 to change my tail light. I spent more on the replacement pair, but LEDs.

TL;DR I finally fixed my brakelight and can safely drive in front of police vehicles again!

That feeling when you write a long, well thought out post, and you submit it, and it’s the first post on a new page of a thread.

I'm ranked 59th on the Oceanic server on my favourite League of Legends character.

He's not played often and OCE is a smaller server, but I'm still pretty proud of that. Very solid win rate, so I'm hoping to get into the top 30 by the end of the week.

I thought I could change the bulb in my cars headlight. Simple, pop it out, put in the new one, pop it back in. The problem being Subaru decided to encase the Tribeca headlight inside a plastic funnel the end of which was just barely big enough to wiggle my (relatively small) hand into. After removing the battery and several pieces of plastic cowling I was at least able to reach the headlight and remove the old bulb. Several cuts, failed attempts, and curses later, I dropped the replacement bulb in my efforts to get it seated and was unable to retrieve it. I paid the $30 for a mechanic to do it. I would have gladly paid another $30 if he showed me how the heck he managed it. Years later if I took a turn right, I could still hear the replacement bulb rattling around in there.

Thankfully, the current car has normal easy to reach headlight bulbs and I was able to upgrade them to LEDs easy peasy.
