    Stupidest vehicle related thing i have ever done is pay for gas.
    With the EV revolution upon us, buying gas is the dumbest thing anyone can do in life now.

      >People actually think this
      What is DA going to drive after all the shitboxes dry up since EVs are effectively totaled after 5 years due to the batteries costing as much as the fricking car.

        The EV batteries can be replaced if push comes to shove

            Nobody that wrenches buys an EV and even if they did it’s not a labor issue it’s a PART expense. The battery itself is over $10k if you can even get one.

    on top of this, 2 weeks later, my nephew discovered the big tray full of scooped up oil in the garage & started playing in it and rolling around in it, spreading it all over the house

    I went about an inch or two from the edge of the road. A month later I slid that car into a rock because I entered a 30mph turn at 35 when the road was wet. I’ve learned that tires are a good investment, and that going fast in grandma cars is a bad idea.

      i had a set of tyres whose wet traction was by all accounts, equivalent to its dry traction, so i got too wienery one day and ended up understeering down an embankment and rolling the car at 65 mph. somehow only suffered minor cuts and scrapes, the steering wheel airbag didnt even go off

    Swapping batteries on a man lift and thinking "red is power, black is negative".
    Procedded to see a frickton of sparks off of that one lead connected to 6 batteries.
    Or when I thought I was hearing a transmission clunk in a motorcycle engine and I just left it torn down like a tard after trying to replace a gear.

    Surprisingly no real damage to most of my projects.

      You are fine if it was only for a bit, if I'm feeling tistic I crank with the igniter pulled to get all the old oil out, it's surprising how much oil the pump holds.

    I have done plenty of stupid shit but my fondest is when I was hand-crank pumping oil from a 55 gallon barrel into my work’s Chevy truck, doing an oil change. I was young and inexperienced but I knew to keep checking the dipstick, so as not to overfill. The barrel ran out of oil so I stood from my leaning over the engine position, to go get another drum and my feet started slipping and slapping all over like a damn cartoon. I never put the drain plug back in and there was a full barrel all over the shop floor and gushing out the open garage door.
