Default I Propose No More "Nightmare" Theads

When someone posts one of those "nightmare" threads, I agree that I usually read them and then step back and ask if the problem really rises to the level of a "nightmare".

There are many things in life that are more important than a broken bolt, an old 240 that won't run right, an electrical problem that you can't diagnose and so on. In my experience, most of these "nightmares" are self-created either as a result of using the wrong tools, shooting the parts cannon at the car, or trying to diagnose computer-related issues with a screwdriver and monkey wrench.

Enough of the nightmare threads.

I don't think that you understand the point of my post.

The people who post nightmare threads won't read this one. They haven't joined this forum yet. A nightmare thread is always post #1.

I had a nightmare just today. I pulled out in front of somebody in my T5M. He was really speeding, and I poured on the coal, spilling a little bit of my coffee. I'll be in therapy for a long time. If I used milk and sugar in my coffee, I probably would have already taken my own life.
