Oil Change Necessary 4 Times A Year? I think not.
This is 2011, yet we are still having to waste our time going to do stupid things such as oil changes. My point on it being 2011 is that we have so much technology, but no one is using it wisely. Yes, we have video games and big tvs, but seriously who wants to waste their hard earned money 4 times a year to get an oil change?
Now I know they say with the newer cars, if you don't travel far, then you should only have them serviced 2 times a year, but if you travel a lot then it should be serviced 3 times a year. But I would think with all the genius people there are in the world that they could surely make servicing only 1 time a year or even every other year possible.
But no everyone is to wrapped up in new video games and 3d this and 4d that and new game systems, better cell phones,... the list goes on and on.
How about finding some ways to save us money? Better gas millage, fewer oil changes, less traveling (every company should have jobs that could be done from home), cheaper foods (human food and pets), cheaper clothing, cheaper diapers and wipes, shelves, paint, wood,... once again another list that could just go on and on.
It seems that everyone just became so greedy that instead of just making the price a little higher to pay for the work, materials, and to get some profit they decided to make everything so outrageous so we would all go broke, including them. Because they raise the product they're selling that they've made and the people selling the materials see that they're making so much so they raise their prices, and so on and so forth.
So use your brains and think of ways to keep everyone from going broke. And everyone needs to stop being so greedy! The more you help others the better off you'll be. People need to use their common sense again!
An Obituary printed in the London Times - Interesting and sadly rather true
Today we mourn the passing of a beloved old friend, Common Sense, who has been with us for many years. No one knows for sure how old he was, since his birth records...... were long ago lost in bureaucratic red tape.
He will be remembered as having cultivated such valuable lessons as:
- Knowing when to come in out of the rain;
- Why the early bird gets the worm;
- Life isn't always fair;
- and maybe it was my fault.
Common Sense lived by simple, sound financial policies (don't spend more than you can earn) and reliable strategies (adults, not children, are in charge).
His health began to deteriorate rapidly when well-intentioned but overbearing regulations were set in place. Reports of a 6-year-old boy charged with sexual harassment for kissing a classmate; teens suspended from school for using mouthwash after lunch; and a teacher fired for reprimanding an unruly student, only worsened his condition.
Common Sense lost ground when parents attacked teachers for doing the job that they themselves had failed to do in disciplining their unruly children. It declined even further when schools were required to get parental consent to administer sun lotion or an aspirin to a student; but could not inform parents when a student became pregnant and wanted to have an abortion.
Common Sense lost the will to live as the churches became businesses; and criminals received better treatment than their victims. Common Sense took a beating when you couldn't defend yourself from a burglar in your own home and the burglar could sue you for assault.
Common Sense finally gave up the will to live, after a woman failed to realize that a steaming cup of coffee was hot. She spilled a little in her lap, and was promptly awarded a huge settlement. Common Sense was preceded in death, by his parents, Truth and Trust, by his wife, Discretion, by his daughter, Responsibility, and by his son, Reason.
He is survived by his 4 stepbrothers; I Know My Rights, I Want It Now, Someone Else Is To Blame, and I'm A Victim
Not many attended his funeral because so few realized he was gone. If you still remember him, pass this on. If not, join the majority and do nothing.
