What Carnival Ride Are You?

You Are a Carousel

You are young at heart and a truly playful person. No one would ever accuse you of taking life too seriously.

You are definitely in things for the fun. You find joy easily, and you are often building up anticipation for your next adventure.

In relationships, you tend to want to be babied and taken care of.

And while you may be a bit high maintenance, you are incredibly loyal.

Your life is simple and satisfying. Each day you treat yourself to something you enjoy.

You have a lot of emotional attachments, and experiences are extra vivid to you.

You tend to be nostalgic and sentimental. The past is important to you.

Comfortable around all living things, you have a special connection to animals and children.

At your best, you are whimsical, free spirited, and creative.

Even if your schemes seem a bit strange, they usually work out wonderfully.

At your worst, you are spoiled, demanding, and impossible to satisfy.

You've been known to act like a brat if you aren't getting your way!

What Font Are You?

You Are Arial Black

You are bold, over the top, and quite loud.

You'll stand up and stand up to get your point across.

Subtlety isn't really your thing. You sometimes come off as crass and abrasive.

You're not as passionate as people might think. You just enjoy overwhelming other people!

Again, none of these quizzes come out quite accurate. None of the above is really true!

Beware of the Seven Deadly Sins of Vehicle Neglect

I spotted this poster at my local auto repair shop today when I went to get some work done on my car.
The poster was from the Mighty Auto Parts company and said to Ask how we can help you protect your vehicle's seven vital systems.

The Seven Sins on the poster are as follows:
Oil System: Sludge-filled crankcase and excessive engine wear.
Fuel System: Clogged fuel injectors and mileage-robbing intake deposits.
Transmission System: Overheated, neglected fluid, clogged filtration system and hardened seals.
Cooling System: Clogging and rust corrosion, leaks, and coolant breakdown.
Power Steering System: Suspended particles and accumulated residue.
Brake System: Dirty, noisy unsafe components and low fluid levels.
Maintenance System: Dirt, excessive wear, rust, corrosion, and squeaks.

The corresponding Seven Virtues are:
Oil System: Do More than just change your oil. Have your oil system thoroughly cleaned and wear-protected for longer life.
Fuel System: Regular cleaning and fuel performance treatments to restore power and mileage.
Transmission System: Regular flushing, fluid protection treatments and replacement of filters for long life and smooth operation.
Cooling System: Regular flushing and protection treatments to avoid overheating.
Power Steering System: Periodic flushing and protection treatments to insure dependable steering.
Brake System: Regular fluid maintenance, brake system inspection and lubrication of key components for quite, safe, stops.
Maintenance System: Regular use of high-quality Mighty VS7 lubricants, cleaners, corrosion inhibitors and general maintenance products.

Beware of the sins indeed!
