    There is no point in having a ground insulated.

    You can buy good quality braided ground straps for cheap, so for the average vehicle there's no benefit in reinventing the wheel.

    The heating elements don't know what's telling them to do their job. Yes, you can replace the electronic junk with a normal old school thermostat.

    In a retail setting, I would place its value between $5 and $10,000. At auction, I would expect it to bring between $3 and $10,000. For insurance purposes, I'd use $125,000.

    lol. How dumb.

    The death penalty IS a good thing. What's bad about it is that we let people sit on death row so long it costs millions of dollars to kill them. We should kill them right away. ...
