I'm currently dealing with a pretty big fuckup, not even my fault really. The guy who sold me the part has absolutely no excuse to have not known better and its causing me one hell of a headache.

I'm hoping some others can share stories of times they fucked up through their own, or someone else's fault, to make me feel better. Maybe I'll even give you my story if yours make mine look not so bad.

I managed to tighten a bolt onto a frame such that the fuel pump power line was grounded out. I figured out what I had done after a while. What I didn't figure out was that it blew the main fuse. I should have checked that early on, but instead I went on a wild goose chase through a lot of the electrical system.

I tried to do an alignment using the string method. It being my first time I didn't realize that the steering wheel needed to be secured. I aligned one wheel and then the other and took it on a drive around the parking lot. The damn thing was all over the place, almost impossible to control. I parked it and looked, the wheels were a good 30 deg. out.

Someone gave me a car in high school. It was parked uphill in the driveway. I decided to take it for a quick run around the block to see how it was. I turned the wheel and backed up to face downhill, causing a torrent of rotten shit and water poured out of the roof and on to my head and lap. It smelled like what would happen if you left a dead frog in a jar of water for a month and then poured it on your head.

I used to carry around a truck battery in the passenger foot well of a tiny, shitty car. The battery was garbage and needed boosting on a regular basis.

Alright, two come to mind.

Was doing a rear brake replacement on drums and rotors. The springs where horrifying to get on and off and it took me two days. I had one side and my friend had the other. He adjusted the star wheel on his side, and I did mine. Bout a week later I'm hearing a grinding noise on the side he did. I dealt with it for a while cause I no longer felt like fucking with it. Eventually the car was no longer safe to drive due to a lack of rear brakes. When I finally had a look at his side, the entire assembly was in pieces and basically all the rear drum brake parts were just mangled and tumbling around in there.

The second one is on the same car. Gas pump keeps stopping, something is wrong with the fuel carbon filter. I went to replace the vapor vent valve, as is commonly prescribed. Broke a bolt, the carbon filter harness crumbled into rust and metal, bent some slotted fast stock and zip tied it to the frame to hold the fucker up after replacing the vapor vent valve. Takes too much effort and too much time. Go to fuel up after the fix, shit is still fucked. Day well spent.

I got a cheap car battery from like a jiffy lube and after several months my car needed to be jumped every time I started it, but when they checked the battery it was charged and in working order.

I take it to the place I bought the battery and apparently they put in the wrong one for my model. How it worked for at least 3 months and why it stopped working no one could explain.


Fugitive Travel/Extradition Treaty Status/ACTUAL Risk of Deportation by dr. m !gWLn19/oKs - Fri, 20 Oct 2017 11:56:21 EST ID:MKbGqDYo No.35491 Ignore Report Reply Quick Reply

Hello everyone. I have a loaded question today. For context, this is for US citizens that only possess US passports. We could also talk about other Western countries, but apart from the UK or US I'm not particularly interested.

First and foremost I have never been suspected of any crime, nor is my passport revoked in any way. However, with a combination of the possibility of trumped charges and other concerns within my lifetime, I am heavily interested in discussion the extradition status of overseas countries.

Anyone can use Google to read which countries officially have "no extradition agreement" with the US or the UK.

To assume this as gospel is insane.

I want to hear from people knowledgeable on the issue.

Preferred countries:

>no formal extradition treaty with US (you can leave out countries that have them but don't enforce them; not worth the risk IMO)

>HAVE THE BEST DEPORTATION LAWS.

Japan should be avoided for 50 different reasons. Not cheap, xenophobia, way less working opportunities, foreigner demand is higher relatively, and they'll extradite you.

This. Back when there were large communist bloc's you can legit be an enemy of the American state and have governments of atleast 5 countries provide for you and hide you.

A good, theoretical, starting point would be Afghanistan or the surrounding nations... none of them have extradition treaties with the US, at least.

Vietnam, Cambodia or Indonesia could be good candidates too.

The countries of former Yugoslavia are also somewhat safe.

If you don't want US/UK interference at all(and you're not a woman), Iran could be a good place if you're not scared of getting allahu akbar'd

A better strategy: any country not friendly with US/UK values would probably gladly give you asylum if you got something worth their interest.

I was thinking Vietnam/Laos/Cambodia simply because there's multiple non-extradition countries that border each other and likely have shitty borders.

It seems like the UAE is the best bet for a connecting flight.

Unfortunately, Thailand does extradite. That fucking blows.

Cambodia would be cheap as shit too. You can live on an island with other foreigners with a maid, private fences and security guards, an unlimited tiki bar every night after sunset, seafood and steak multiple times a week, all for well under $1000/month all included.

Ok so I made a post a few months back talking about a trip I've been planning around the world on practically no money.

Well I'm doing it! I'm in Venice Italy right now. I arrived super late and ended up just dropping 20 euro on a hostel because I've been hitchiking for 5 days and was to tired to hunt down a squat in the dark.

I've been couch surfing and wwoofing as well as busking some street art. I make those outer space scense with spray paint that the tourists fucking love. On a good day I make like 20 euro. Even on my worst day I make 5-10 euro ( i keep writing euro because my pc dosent have a euro button because it was made in murica and im to lazy to look up the ascii code.)

Ive met tons of cool people from various walks of life.

The other night I pitched my tent in a traffic circle on the highway that had a lot of bushes. I got bored and wandered to the gas station where i met some homeless chick who was waiting for a ride and we hung out and she shared this huge ball of hash with me, i gifted her with a painting.

I'll write more detailed adventures and post cooler pics in the future. But right now i have to take my first shower and a shave in a week. I look like shit.


Pic is me and some distraught locals who hosted me for a week.

It's pretty fantastic over all. My only negative criticisms are obviously the whole visual style is completely not like the show but more like the movie which is a bit confusing....it's set in the original time line right?

Also episode 3 is sort of possibly continuity breaking depending on what happens in episode 4.

The law enforcement stance is kind of like authoritative parents telling their stoner child: "We know you're doing it, just don't let us catch you."

Basically any conspicuous public use, even in an enclosed vehicle, is grounds for citation. Herb smell is a dead giveaway, so I would recommend edibles and vaping whatever concentrate delights your pleasure receptors.

There's probably a driver's manual available wherever you are at. There tends to be a lot of procedural stuff in there, exactly what's supposed to happen at a 4-way-stop, what to do at a one lane bridge, the like.

Driving school might be a good idea for you. Check what's available, price, reputation, possible reductions on your insurance.

>Where does one even learn to drive?
Driving schools are mandatory in my country (for now), but even if they're not mandatory in yours, i'd take it.
Not only will you be sure you're up to accepted standards, but you're pretty sure that you don't pick up bad habits from your dad/mom/spouse/whoever

As >>35532 mentions, they may also give some insurance benefits and additional options.
If you live far from nearest town/city, i'd grab trailer driving lessons as well.
If you live in a cold area with risk of lots of ice and snow, i'd strongly suggest you take a winter or ice driving safety course as well.

>How do I read the signs?
You'll learn that in the theoretical part of the driving lessons or from the book. The primary ones you need to concentrate on are speed limits and the signs that indicate the state of the road up ahead (like eg. a roadworks, yield or narrowing road sign) or localized rules (eg. a "one way" sign).
A few signs also help with gauging sharp corners etc.

Training with simulation-oriented racing games (eg. Gran Tourismo) helped me to learn to pick up signs and cues. On a race track there is also signage that helps you gaugewhen to brake and turn.

Obviously can't garuntee those will be there by then.
I'm in the Northeast. Willing to travel.
The 100+ miles will probably end up shittin out on Me sooner requiring maintence.

Honda makes the best cars in the world,cheapest to tune and repair therefore most reliable and this means it may not be the quickest in stock but with time and patience any civic or accord can become sporty. Eat a bag of dicks with your fords Audi's and chevys.

>plus I'm working on my credit
I don't know what your exact situation is like, but my car loan did wonders for my credit it. I had about 4k cash plus a thousand on my trade in for a 10k car. The loan I got through a local credit union was for three years at 4.7% APR with very little credit, no penalty for paying the principal off early. This was buying through a used car dealership, mind you (evidently the only honest one in the area).

Anyway, good luck finding your white whale, OP. I'm just giving you some food for thought.

Maybe I'll just forever have to be on foot. While that would help my credit even with working full time I never have any money left over after rent and bills as it is. I maybe have 100-200 tops which in this state would just barely cover insurance let alone a car payment.

So I might be moving to China fairly soon, like potentially within the next few weeks or so.

I'll be waaay down south and just a few hours ferry ride away from Hong Kong Zhongshan. Looks pretty neat but I am fucking OUT OF MY ELEMENT and wondering if anyone here has any tips for living in the great peoples republic.

Pretty lazy thing to ask but does anyone know the drugs scene at all down there? I hear ket is pretty big in some parts, I can defo get into that.

Oh yeah don't worry about that. I had planned to have an anonymous travel blog just to act as a sort of diary, but unfortunately the website I was planning to post on is banned here. 420chan isn't though lol.

Also wechat is the total ONE over here. So bizarre to hear your boss asking you to "Add them on wechat".

For anyone wondering it's like whatsapp but with legitimacy. So far I've seen it essentially do the job of uber, just eat, pay pal, apple pay, messenger. Because you can use it to send money, there's little games you can play. Like, the boss sends out a "red letter" or some shit and if you click the message quick enough you can earn money. Just like 30 pence worth of stuff or whatever but it's still really bizarre.

if you get a break from work you could go to Yangshuo, it's a few hours by train. Its really touristy but also beautiful. There's a bar there called Monkey Jane's rooftop and its the definition of a dive bar. You can smoke weed all you want there and play beerpong with the bar owner. I forgot her name but she has alot of coffee-cup tattoos and some of Dutch football teams. I hung out there one night and at sunrise we all climbed a mountain to watch it.

Guilin is 100% on the agenda at some point. Legit I'll keep your suggestion in mind. This board is pretty slow and it's not as if your suggestion is going anywhere.

I'll be mostly sticking to Zhongshan until Chinese new year where I'm planning on going further north, but yeah everyone has told me about how amazing Guilin and the surrounding areas are so I'll defo get down there at some point.

OH SHIT WHADDUP IT'S ME WITH AN UPDATE.
I'll go through my post one point at a time.
>Really Really like it down here
Yup still enjoying myself, every day at some point I smile to myself and think "fucking china..." and it's just great.
>Fucking hot
Cooling down now but things are gonna get ridiculously hot next summer. It is insane how hot it can get, I don't know how anyone got anything done back in the day.

Everything I said about the classes still stands. Although it is kinda chaotic sometimes, lots of last minute changes. I'm also struggling with discipline. The Chinese teachers come and take control if things get out of hand but it's not a good feeling to just hand your authority off to them.

I've been out every weekend and am yet to buy a drink. Other than when I went to Hong Kong. The culture here is table beers and if you're white you can take them, that's the vibe I've got.
>I really feel like I've lucked out with this move and the placement I've got. In a super wealthy well off area with low crime rate and loads of great places to eat. I'm sure there's some brutal places to teach english but Zhongshan really isn't one of them.
Yeah this is exactly how I feel about it now. It's not a walk in the park but I've got Chinese friends who can help me out and the mandarin classes are helping.
