  1. How's it going with the car. I just got back from partying with friends for St. Pattie's. Yes, I forgot to tell you that Autozone will hook up their scan too your diagnostic terminal and check it for codes. You can do this too yourself with and ohmmeter or from the check engine light flashes if you have an OBD I diagnostic sysyem. That just means that the codes are all just numbers. So you can read the pulses on a voltmeter or check engine light flashes to do a spot check on the road when y
  2. That's actually a very well built car. Very reliable and dependable. It may be a grandma car like you said but it is built like a tank and is roomy. It's got some power too I guess. A 3.8 liter V6 is what they have I think. They make a supercharged version too I believe. It's boxy and a big car right? It's supposed to be a very good reliable car. You said it it idles eratically and it stalls right? Well my best guess is that it has a vacuum leak in the fuel injection system, intake ma
  3. Yes, working on cars is what I do in my spare time and as my hobby. Been doing it since I was like 12 or something so I'm pretty efficient when it comes to fixing cars. I just don't have as much time to do it as I used to but I work on my cars most weekends when I'm not at the beach surfing. I have a pretty good garage setup at my house so that's what I like to do to relax. Just work on my cars or my girlfriend's car or friend's car. I have a new computer system setup in my garage for diagn
  4. All I was saying was that humans have been eating meat since the cave man days so we have been conditioned to eat meat. That's all. Also steamed vegetables are good for you. I wasn't saying that it was less barbaric than raw vegetables. Just that steamed vegetables taste much metter and the vitamins are released more than eating them raw so they are better for you healthwise. I was told by a nutritionist that to stay fit and keep weight down eating mostly meat and steamed vegetables is
  5. Nuts and raw vegetables are for squirels and rabbits. Not humans.
  6. Yes, it is very healthy to eat lots of meat to keep your weight down and stay fit and healthy. Lots of meat and steamed vegetables. I love meat. Especially the meat on my girfriend's butt. Let's face it in the cave man days they hunted animals with spears and rocks and shit and ate meat. Animals are to kill and put on the barbecue pit and eat. There's nothing like some good barbecued ribs, nice juicy brisket and steaks, sausage, chicken wings, fajitas, pork ribs, hamburger paties, barbacoa
  7. I'm pretty happy with my ass. I like J Lo's rear end. Whew..........man she has nice curves. There is this plastic surgeon in LA doing people's butt to look like Jennifer Lopez's tushie. They pay about $10,000 to do it too. And eyes like Nicole Kidman and lips like Gina Gershon.
  8. I use Oil Refiner and Matte Scientist by Origins for my oily skin. It lasts all day and it is terrific. Nothing has worked better than that.
  9. Murad was terrible for me. Man, I don't even want think about that time. It was the worse my skin has ever been. The moisturizer is okay though. But the Skin Repairing Lotion made me break out like a motherfu&*er. It was awful. People asked me if their was something wrong with me. Thank god that time is over and my skin is pefectly clear now. I have never tried Proactiv. It is BP based. I read somewhere on epinions.com about people's results with it. Most people seemed to like i
  10. Oh yeah. The question: "Why do some people get acne and some don't?" Because some people are lucky and some just aren't. That's life I guess. Unfortunately I have to work hard to keep my skin looking clear and flawless, but I just have mild acne from time to time, but to me it is a problem I deal with every day and think about a lot. But, then there are other's that just wash their face with water and don't really care much about their face and have perfectly clear skin ever day and never
  11. Well, not everybody in Hollywood is like that. Sure some may eat healthy and have personal trainers, and go to spas, but they suffer from acne too and have weight problems sometimes and suffer from depression and drug or drinking problems just like everybody else. The reason people think they are perfect is because people see them in movies, music videos, magazines, etc. that way. In real life you will be surprised with some celebrities appearances. Not that they are bad looking but they ha
  12. Yep, fabric softner seems to bother my skin like the bounce sheets. It makes a big difference for me. Also make sure that the spa uses proper sterilization and proper methods to avoid contamination or they can really mess up someone's skin by spreading bacteria from one person to another.
  13. Yep, I tried the L' Oreal Pure Zone stuff too once. Total shit in a bottle at about $8 each for the cleanser, toner, moisturizer. A total waste of about $25. Ivory soap and witch hazel is probably better than that worthless crap. The cleanser felt nice though and smelled good. But the toner, moisturizer, and blemish remover were the worst products I've ever used next to Murad. It made my face look awful. Terrible stuff and they even advertise that it's for acne. If you want to really sc
  14. No. The only side effect is maybe a few really bad headaches here and there, but I can't say for sure whether the pills caused it or something else like stress or allergies. Also, I seem to get more hungry too but that comes and goes and I can't be positive it was the pills. I started using it about 2 years ago and then quit and now I'm using it again. I had great success with it so I'm using it again because it works for me. In my case it works great for like 2-3 months straight and my ski
  15. Well, I have used Nature's Cure pills and I still use them and they work good. A noticeable reduction in breakouts. Sometimes I get headaches from time to time, but overall they work very good for me. When I first used them, I would have like 4-5 new blemishes a week from breakouts before using them. Within about a week of using them I could go a month with only 1-2 blemishes and sometimes no blemishes for weeks with an occasional blemish here and there. I really believe that people need to
  16. Yes, salicylic acid seems to be more gentle than BP. At least for me it does. When I was using salicylic acid I had no irritation or drying whatsoever, but it seemed to break me out more like Murad, L' Oreal Pure Zone which have salicylic acid as the active ingredient. The only products that I like with salicylic acid is the Phisoderm 4 Way Facial Cleanser (very gentle), L' Oreal Pure Zone cleanser (wow it feels good and wakes you up), Neutrogena Deep Pore mask (nice cool feeling to sleep wi
  17. My favorite cleanser is Get Down by Origins and Mint Wash by Origins as well. I use Mint Wash as my regular daily cleanser and the Get Down about every other day and sometimes as a mini mask. Mint Wash is a green gel and the Get Down is a white grainy cream. Both cleansers are terrific. The most gentle cleansers I have used and by far some of the best on the market. I love them.
  18. Yes, I am a guy and I get facials. Sometimes I go to the spa with my girfriend and I get a deep pore cleansing facial. Sometimes my girfriend gives me a facial. Facials are great and they make your face feel very nice, but you tend to break out more from them if it is your first time getting one. If you do them regularly then breaking out becomes less of a problem. A lot of people get facials for big events like a wedding or a big night on the town or something only to be dissapointed the
  19. Yeah, but the eye irritation only lasts for about 10-20 seconds and then it goes away. When I open the tube and start to apply it to my face I can feel the BP burning my eyes but then it goes away. It's just the initial exposure to it I guess. It not that big of a deal to me. If it was burning my eyes all day then I'd probably stop using it. It just works so much better than the 2.5% Neutrogena and it's not really irritating if you use it carefully. I take the pills too with the 5% BP N
  20. Ice? Yeah, I like ice. Especially with platinum on my neck and wrist.
  21. Well there are 5 basic steps to a skin regimen so that's a given and there's not much we can do about that. 1. Cleanse 2. Tone 3. Medicate (BP, salicylic acid, sulfur, etc.) 4. Moisturize 5. Protect (SPF 15 or higher for sun exposure) As far as products, a lot of stuff out there is good and works but a lot of stuff is crap. You just have to find out what works for you and what doesn't. The first step is to see if you have acne in the first place. There are a lot of skin problems that people
  22. Yes. I have some right here actually. It's the Phisoderm 4 Way Facial Wash in a 6 fl. oz. bottle. It's a very good product. Very gentle. I have used it in the past and still have a few bottles of it and use it from time to time. I use Origins Mint Wash now but I still like the Phisoderm cleanser. I loved to use it because it is very gentle for my sensitive skin and found it to be the most gentle of over-the-counter cleansers as opposed to the other brands of cleansers like Neutrogena, Pur
  23. Yes, I purchased the Murad Acne Complex and I used the toner and the mask too about two years ago. I think I paid something like $50 for the Murad Acne Complex from a website called www.beautysupply.com and I ordered the toner and the mask too which was like an extra $30 or something. The website may still be up. Great sevice and an excellent website but Murad didn't work for me. I think Murad was the worst thing I ever put on my face. Total crap. The moisturizer is very good and the ton
  24. Yes benzoyl peroxide does burn your eyes or at least it burns my eyes and I don't put it on anywhere near my eyes. I recently switched back to the 5% BP by Nature's Cure because it is very good but I have to be careful with it because it can be a bit overdrying if you are not careful and it stains clothes very easily. It works a hell of a lot better than the Netrogena On-The-Spot and has a better consistency, texture, and feel on the face. I think that the Neutrogena leaves a nasty white fi
