    Ever see bags over the back wiper blades on vehicles? What's that all about? Most I see seem to be fit for the wiper and not just some random bag. :dunno:

    They put those on at car washes so the nylon bristles on the rotating scrubber don't get hooked in the wiper and rip it off. People forget to take them off quite often.

    What about the bags duct taped over where a window used to be? I guess some people forget to take them off too!:)

    If you would have raised your wife right she would be doing it, just like mine is doing it. You just need to show her wears the pants of the family:thumb::lachen::lachen::lachen::lachen::lachen:

    It was nice knowing Y'all:lachen::lachen::lachen:

    If my wife doesn't paint it, it doesn't get painted, I would rather take an ass whipping than paint

    I think it was caused by the summers of my life, it there were no other shitty jobs to do I was told to paint, I swear I was in the 2nd semester before all the barn red was out of my pores

    What i wonder about is the rubber straps i see hanging off the backs of vehicles, from the bumper to the road. Never remember to Google them when I'm done driving.


    Edit: after all these years i finally googled it. Their intended to discharge static.

    Nah. Let it dry and scatter it with the lawnmower. Free fertilizer! You just have to ignore the odiferous emanations after a rain or on humid days.

    What I've never understood is how rubber discharges static. Isn't rubber basically an insulator?

    Most of them are Carbon Impregnated Rubber.

    I thought a rubber was to prevent impregnating :dunno:

    My brother is a victim of defective rubber. I love my nephew and wouldn't trade him for anything. I guess he's super potent.
