    Applied to my old 50 F1 that's just a wore out old truck with a souped up engine at least twice as powerful as what it was designed for....

    Well all the flys were chowing down on manure. One fly in particular ate, ate and ate. All the other flys flew off and it was his turn. Well, seems he ate so much he could not take off. So he spied the pitchfork, climbed it and jumped.
    Straight down he goes splattering himself all over the manure pile.
    Moral....
    Don't fly off the handle when you are full of shit.

    From the back of the room comes a voice"Hey professor,you ever try to strike a match on a marshmellow?
    Good luck.Have fun.Be safe.
