Default Friday the 13th NOW WITH PICS NO 56k

So its friday the 13th..
todays word of the day on dictionary.com is triskaidekaphobia
--A morbid fear of the number 13 or the date Friday the 13th.--

so my friend called me up and his car burned down today... 97 Maxima with about 2000 in mods into it.. BURNED TO THE GROUND...
his sub amp overheated or shorted out and decided that fire is fun and took the whole car with it...

i think he is now triskaidekaphobic..

im gonna try to get some pics to post on here

Could be worse, he could suffer from Sesquipedalophobia.

Actually wouldn't he suffer from Paraskavedekatriaphobia?

I love these things.... I know some guys who suffer from Eurotophobia.

my car almost caught fire today. i was trying to adjust the timing, and i did. drove it, was happy with it, and left it. i park in the driveway at home, and shut the car off. i notice what looked like smoke coming from under hte hood <looked just like a blown radiator hose, but not quite as bad> i open the hood, to find this stuff coming out of the fumes vent on the carb, it was also coming from the pcv system. i take the air cleaner thing off the top of the carb, only to see clouds of this stuff coming out of the carb. if you knew what that cloud of "smoke" was, you would crap your pants.

Betting the car backfired or coughed pretty damn good on shut down. Or had a fuel leak.
