There was a time before the internet where someone could ask a question out of left field and maybe their buddies would hear it and rib them and the thing would just float away and be part of the vapors. Unfortunately, with the internet that same question can take on a life of its own and we’re jumping on the train early regarding this thread over at Corral.net where a dude innocently asks the group if he can attach subframe connectors to his car by using JB Weld as he is nervous about getting a welder close to there the fuel lines run. As you can imagine, the answers to the question were not a simple “no”. To the group’s credit, they offered about 50 hilarious other methods to attach the subframe connectors like:
a hot glue gun
double sided tape
self tapping screws
The group responded just like a group of buddies would respond to the question in person, they are busting his chops. No one has gone completely off the deep end with viciousness which is nice (hey we’re looking for a silver lining here) but no one has stepped up to offer help to the kid, either (at least publicly, maybe via private message?). Learning about cars is something we all have done. Asking a question that we think is logical but really isn’t is something we all have done. Laughing about it years later is something we all still do. Here’s to hoping this dude finds it funny in 10 years.
Oh…and someone help this kid before those connectors fall off the car and rocket through someone’s windshield like spears of doom!
Thanks for the tip Jon!
