    Way back when I was in Driver's Ed., the car we were in had a flat. It was 2 girls, the teacher, and me. Guess who changed the tire. I haven't had to do it again since then.

    hello... and changing tires sucks.

    Ah well... I've been known to help people change theirs, though...

    Back...

    Probably when WoW comes out. Been thinking of moving from Everquest to there, depending on if I can get a couple friends to move with me. At the moment I'm grinding my ass off in Everquest, levelling. New expansion came out on wednesday raising the level cap from 65 to 70, so everyone's madly killing mobs in an effort to get up to 70.

    It was a rear tire on a 2000 Chevy Astro, and we were towing a U-haul trailer behind us. The only thing that tipped us off was the lowered ride in the back and the THUMPTHUMPTHUMPing. I think the trailer helped stabilize any spinningout we might have done.

    If it had been a front tire, and if we hadn't had a trailer, and if the car had been goin 80mph on I-5 instead of 55, yeah we mighta spun out big time.
