Hey you're Saudi Arabian - can't you just buy your own college?
There are very few colleges that offer majors like ASE certification. When you find one, the last one (93 I believe) went at a premium, unleaded.

I feel so miserable without you; its almost like having you here.

RE: The things I have learned in life

when one is involved in vehicle maitainence and drops a screw or other fastener, it will invariable strike the tip of one's shoe and be propelled to the location under the car which is farthest from one's reach......if it can be found at all.

frequency of such an event is contingent upon the discomfort of one's back.

I would say that there is an equal probability of the fastener landing in a location that requires the disassembly of critical components of the vehicle for retrieval.

Thanks,

In addition, the dropee can be easily ascertained as the person holding a screwdriver in one hand and the fastener-less part in the other. Although an hour’s time may be required to locate the offending screw, these implements will never leave dropee's hands.

When on a cross-country trip in the USA, restrooms are inversely proportional to the distance traveled and directly proportional to the volume of coffee consumed. If traveling with a woman, there is no clean restroom.

Baha! I remember a piece they did on 60 minutes about tourettes (or Toureg, whatever) in which the analysts, one overweight and the other bald sat 20 or so sufferers around a large boardroom table. As they interviewed them, the patients began to yell out, "Fatty!.......Baldy!!.......Fatso!!" As debilitating neurological afflictions go, that's gotta be the wackiest.
