And hot water freezes faster than cold!

My high school science teacher was a woman,  past her prime, but in very good physical condition. She had a great body, but an old lady hairdo, and we were convinced that she was berkeleying the hunky young gym teacher. But above all, she never missed the opportunity to make something a joke, often inappropriate, which we all thought was pretty cool. I didn't learn E36 M3 in her class, and in retrospect, she was an idiot.

Might want to rethink your opinion of her:

now, I have never repeated the experiment myself. Maybe with the kids getting old enough it could be a fun "question your basis" type experiment.

My daughter started dating a guy last year that has a '18 Civic Si, brother has a '19 Si and his mom drove a '17 Civic Type R AND he went to her school so he can shuttle her back and forth on breaks.

Then she broke up with him.........

This appeared to be lowered, aftermarket wheels, aftermarket exhaust, catless downpipe. She brought him to my work to wrack my brains for of there was a way to get it to pass state inspection without putting the stock downpipe back in. I couldn't think of one.

I actually didn't even go out and look at the car. They came in and he was just telling me about how the CEL was on because it had a catless downpipe and he was trying to avoid putting the original downpipe in it. I didn't even ask the car, but was just assuming it was a Chevy Sonic or some other mundane E36 M3box. Never even asked the vehicle. I said "Nope, can't think of anything." They left, the service writers goes "What's he even drive?" And then we saw the Focus ST pull out. The second question from the service writers was "How old's your niece? Because that dude looked like he's your age." She's 19. I'm 31.

No. In hindsight, she was an idiot.

I wasn't saying she told me that, just bringing it up like Streetwiseguy did.

I will have to admit that even though he was shouting during the process, I told him it wasn't causing me any physical discomfort at all. 
 

And then later this evening, he asked if he should take his colace (laxative) thus evening. I very firmly (less fond of that word now) replied YES
