    People that do this to their cars. There's literally no benefit to this much negative camber. It both looks stupid and ruins performance in every imaginable category.

    I'm going to go out on a limb and suggest that the rear downforce provided by that spoiler on a front-wheel-drive car has a similar scarcity of benefit to be derived from it's application thusly.

    There has to be some benefit to lateral G's and braking distance from high speed. All of the FWD touring cars (BTCC, WTCC, etc.) all have rear spoilers. Also, I'm not too familiar with VW's, is that an R32? It might be AWD.

    On the car in your image, sure. On Alphonso McCheeseforbrains' car? Highly doubtful.

    I hate the brown-noser that suggested we work 5 days, and be off 2. If I am elected President, I will make Monday an official part of the weekend---so we can begin hating Tuesdays.

    I hate that I have to spend 6500 on a sand line septic system because our current system failed. My wife asked what a "sand line" system is....I said its a 60" inch deep hole they dig in our yard, then back up a dump truck of 6500 dollar bills and fill up the hole.

    thusly... are you just testing us, Pug? ;)

    thus as I know you know, is already an adverb*, and thus it don't need no steenkin' -ly tacked on to adverbify it.

    I note with great amusement that Chrome's spell-checker either thinks that adverbify is A-OK English spelling or it's so disoriented that it doesn't know what to do.

    Explain the math on that one...because each family member would get at least a #1 and #2 bucket.
  • mrbironmrbiron Posts: 5,101
    I don't know how big your BMs are...
    If "X" equals size and "Y" equals frequency then

    (X x Y)/5 gallons = passings per bucket

    6500/1500 buckets = 4.33 each bucket....thats probably pretty close.
    1500 x 5 gal = 7500 gal of pupe and wee.
    So the question then becomes how long until all 1500 buckets have to be removed from the house and dumped somewhere??

    Well, if you kept the buckets in the house....I think we could assume a daily evaporation rate of .02. Do we have any fecal evaporation statisticians on the forum to validate the .02 factor?

    I believe that would be averaging all ages. The evaporation rate of infants is probably three times that of a senior citizen, and I'm pretty sure no evaporation takes place for those on a vegan diet.

    Not even sure flys mess with vegan waste.
  • mrbironmrbiron Posts: 5,101
    Wow...didn't realize how bad my initial mathing was :D

    Ok, so onto evaporation rate...
    Your #2 will lose moisture but not mass. The only way to see a savings there is to let it dry out, and then crush it with your bare hands making sure to not reintroduce moisture or your efforts will be lost.

    I hate school.
    I hate that my math is so childish, I mean I’m in 8th grade!
    fztqtoddmbyn.jpg
    I hate that my math is flat out wrong sometimes. I have actually checked some problems with a calculator after I get them wrong, and I’m right!
    I hate the music that my sisters listen to. If you think hate is a strong word for that, look for it on Apple Music. The artist’s (if you can even call him that, I would use the word dummy) name is Harry Gripp. Just search for it. Tell me what you think.

    I hate marketing and B.S. food manufactures pull. For instance, just bought a pack of 8 Reese's Peanut butter cups only to get home and find they are one third less the size of normal ones.

    I was so mad, because they didn't lower the price at all, just made the product smaller. Was going to throw them out too.

    but I ate them anyway. Next time though... :)
