After 25 years of changing my oil on numerous vehicles, one thing has remained constant in the back of my mind. Why, Why, am I changing this oil that appears to look fine? I would constantly think that maybe the oil had “broken” down and didn’t have the correct viscosity anymore, but something never quite set right with me about this, so I decided to do some research on it, and come to find out, even the Car Manufacturers do NOT recommend changing your oil till around 7800 miles! It depends on the vehicle, but some might go as much as 20,000 miles. I found this extremely interesting since I usually change my oil anywhere from 6000 to 12,000 miles on both my 1995 Chevy K1500 with 265,000 miles on it and my 1998 Buick Century with 160,000 mile.

The only reason I was changing my oil was because that is how I was raised, I was always told to save my engine “I must change the oil every 3000!” The problem with that is the people telling me this were either doing the oil change or selling me oil. Why would I waste money and pollute our planet for no reason.

just don’t do it! I feel that the 25 years I have been changing my oil has taught me one thing. Changing your oil is a waste of money, resources, and not good for this big rock we call Earth.



I recently wrote about NASA’s plan to crash some space probes, ebb and flow, into the moon, here.


Well, everything went as planned and we are all still alive! So that seems like a huge success to me!


The crash site was named after the  late astronaut, Sally K. Ride, who was America’s first woman in space and a member of the probes’ mission team. Sally, died in July after a 17-month battle with pancreatic cancer was said to be an inspiration to the mission and family and friends.


The Sally Ride impact site will remain in our hearts and mind, thank you.

Am I the only one that thinks NASA’s GRAIL Mission, which will impact the Moon 4 days before the end of the world, on 12-17-2012, has terrible timing and  is possibly not the best idea?


NASA’s GRAIL (Gravity Recovery and Interior Laboratory) Mission basically boils down to one thing, lets crash two spacecraft into the Moon, 4 days before the Mayans predicted the end of the world, and see what happens! Each spacecraft weighs about 450 pounds, or the same as a cow (DISCLAIMER: some cow weigh more, some weigh less), so some genius at NASA probably said “hey, we don’t know a lot about the gravity of the moon, heck that thing could be barely hanging on for all we know, one good push might send it sailing out into the universe, LOL (NASA nerds all mouth laugh), so why don’t we slam a half ton of steel, fuel, and heck, even a kitchen sink or two, into that thing and see what happens? Think about it (clasping and rotating hands) WE WILL BE FAMOUS!, and that will really show Sally for standing me up…(insert evil laugh)”


What about the meteorites that coming crashing to Earth, some only the size of a softball, and all the damage they do? Our gravity slows them down and most of the meteorite burns up in our atmosphere, but that’s simply not going to happen on the Moon, so it would take a much smaller “asteroid (AKA, cow)” to have the same SIZE affect. NASA deemed it a good idea to propel almost a half of ton into the surface of our moon! Possibly they should have read some of their own hypothesis on what happened to the Dinosaurs.


Is this whats going to cause the end of the world?


Will this disrupt the magnetic field of the moon, causing the earth to spin faster, slower, change poles?


What will happen when the moon is no longer there to keep us in position, control our tides, or illuminate our night sky?


Will the water rise? Tidal waves? Volcanoes?


Maybe diddle diddle was actually a global precautionary warning that stated “said cow must ALWAYS  jump “OVER” the moon and never ever be “slammed” into it!”


What if the moon is really just a GIANT SPACESHIP?


If you were an alien, sitting inside the moon, how would you react to numerous (more than one) cows hurling towards you? Heck yeah, angry, unionized alien gets trigger happy is right, hitting the big button instead of the little button (size complex), sending the BIG death ray directly at earth!


The End of the World as we know it…
