Some say the world will end with fire.

Others say with ice.

From what I've tasted of desire

I hold with those that favor fire.

But if I had to perish twice,

I think I know enough of hate,

To say that for destruction ice,

Is also great and would suffice.

Robert Frost

Just got the car back from the shop. I had them replace every part related to spark on the car. Probably could have got by just replacing the cover for the coils as that turned out to be where the major short was. The computer would only read out random misfire. Don't cha just love these new cars where all you do is replace parts---no mechanic work. Just.Replace.The.Part. And keep replacing them until you find the one that isn't any good---pretty spendy experimentation if you ask me.

I agree with you, I get disgusted with cars sometimes, they just seem to be huge sucking money pits!
