    JN659842... the serial # from my schwinn stingray I had when I was a kid... It was stolen 16 years ago, so if anyone sees it, you know what to do. every time I see a schwinn stingray I check the #.

    -1 mole of atoms is 6.02 x 10 to the 23rd power.
    -Autolite 605's for most small blocks.
    -The sum of all voltage drops in a curcuit must be equal to the applied voltage.
    -Current is inversely proportianal to resistance in a curcuit.
    -On SH-60B's, is you get an intermittent master caution capsule with no secondary indications, you need to go clean off the intermediate gear box chip detector.
    -The seat pans on an Alfa Romeo Giulietta are 5/8" wider on the driver's side than on the pasenger side. (That's one you don't know till you know it. It's even so random that you don't know you don't know it 'till you learn it.)
    ----Should I go on?

    I've learned so much and forgotten so much simply because I didn't practice what I'd learned often enough, make sense?..I thought I was being really cool when I solved a Buddys noisy 235 in his 56 by T-ing off his oil sending unit and running some braided line up to his head to get oil directly on the valve train, later I was looking at the 235 in my 39 Chevy and realized I had done the same thing about 15 years earlier..and as far as weed destroying your memory, I kill on Cash Cab and Jeopardy.....
