  1. I finally got myself a "pork beef MC" T-shirt after years of waiting. I'm so happy. I'll share a photo of it with y'all when I get home. :awesomedash:

  2. Jebin! My summer holidays just started! It's going to be an awesome midsummer this year. I heard the weather is going to be so warm that we might even break the national record for drowned people this year. :awesomedash: For your disappointment I won't be one of those unlucky ones. I will be fixing my Chevy as usual. She needs some welding (again), new rear shock absorbers and new valve guide seals.

  3. @moiralabrecque03 Here's some pictures of my Caprice.

    New front seat 1/2 installed https://imgur.com/jEyLXM1

    Water pump change https://imgur.com/fycSWAw

    Probably installing new ignition switch or hi/low beam switch. I don't remember anymore. I have changed them both and it was almost similar operation https://imgur.com/mQMm4Vs

    Shotgun side rocker panel had some rust https://imgur.com/d2btKCD I made new panel using wise grips and angle grinder https://imgur.com/nGMqlPv New rocker panel welded https://imgur.com/J0UQJyP Painted with primer using spray gun https://imgur.com/8FighBl It turned out pretty good.

    I had to also fix driver's side rocker panel. It was even worse https://imgur.com/R7a1guN

    Both frame rails were almost cut in half https://imgur.com/lsd91DZ So I had to make some reinforcements https://imgur.com/wQV8myL

    Driver's side quarter panel had some rust https://imgur.com/la8P1o0 In the background you can see my best friend. 3 phase 380 volt Kemppi mig/mag welder.  :HappyPinkie:

  4. Bought some mac & cheese from Lidl today and noticed that the Swedish instructions had a hilarious typo. "Använd inte en minigun eller ugns grillfunktion!" (do not use a minigun or grill function of your oven). Now I have this image in my head of your average Swede having a minigun right next to his toaster. :haha:

  5. Oh dog, I chipped about 1/5 of one of my back tooth when eating Karelian pie this morning. :kdR94: How is this even possible? Karelian pie is softer than the food at Mc Donalds.

    I didn't even realise it was part of my own tooth until I had thrown it in the trash bin and started wondering how it got into my food.

      My thoughts exactly. I kinda knew my teeth are not in that good shape but I didn't know it was this bad. Let's see how expensive this will get.:doublefacehoof:

      The free public healthcare only charged 59€ to repair my tooth. Private sector price would have been around 180€ so I saved about 120€. Then again I paid over 6k€ in taxes last year and this is the only thing I got in return. :flutterrage: At least the service was 6/5.

  6. Happy midsummer to y'all! Let's all celebrate the nightless night.

  7. Happy independence day Finland! :sweetieyes: Your freedom is something no commie coutry is going to steal from you. I really do appreciate all those brave souls who fought for it.

  8. Have I ever tell you how awesome bicycles are? Well, they are. You can ride one even when you're drunk. How cool (and exploitable) is that? To be honest I was shocked to find my bike where I left it. I mean it's been over a year since I last used it and this suburb I live in is notorious for getting your bike stolen if you leave it unsupervised for 5 minutes. :sadpie:

      Well FML! My bicycle has been stolen.:notimpressed:

  9. I hang a US flag on my wall today. Now my appartmet smells like freedom. :happy_twi:

  10. It's Midsummer! The most important holiday of them all. Now it's the time to try to guess how many people will drown during the holidays. It's almost like a national sports. Considering the rainy and coldish weather I'll say only 6 people will drown this year. :good:I'll let you know the statistics when I'll get them.

      Not this summer. Just the Midsummer weekend. I have heard there are some unofficial bets where you can even win some prices if you guess the death toll correct.

      Only 5 people drowned. Seems like my guess wasn't dead on accurate. :ajlol:

  11. I graduated today. :awesomedash: I'm a bachelor of engineering. "Trust me, I'm an engineer" has a new meaning from now onwards.

    SUOMIIIII!!!!! Torille!!:huzzah: I didn't even watch the games but anyways this is so awesome! The whole town has gone crazy.

      Leonbrony17

      You seem to be proud of your country.  :)

  13. I really love honest and outspoken people. It really warms my dead black heart to hear the personnel at my local pub to literally shout "dear customers, now it's the time when you should get the fuck out of here". :happybonbon: Such a simple yet efficient advise.

    1. Leonbrony17

      Leonbrony17

      I agree. If there's a harsh truth to be said, it must be said.

  14. Today I learned that I have more ancestors than any of my ancestors. Fintale 1 - ancestors 0. In your face ancestors! :awesomecheer: I wish you could be as superior as I am but let's be realistic here, shall we. :happy_twi:

      Well, it's good to hear that you're so happy. :)

      Well, in Finland we have this saying "Hullulla on halvat huvit, pähkähullulla ilmaiset" A crazy person's fun are inexpensive, a looneys fun are completely free. :HappyPinkie: I wish you can find something to feel as happy for as I feel for this.

    4. Fintale

      Oh, In my first post I meant to say that I wish that my ancestors could be as superior as I am. I didn't mean that I think that I'm superior to anypony else.


  15. It's Mayday eve and half of the city is getting drunk myself included.:awesomecheer: Tomorrow I'm going to get myself some vendace for dinner and buy myself something highly unnecceccary crap as per my tradition.

  16. It's starting to feel like summer, I can almost feel the Sun burning my skin. :awesomedash: I feel so much more energetic already. Midnight Sun here I come!

  17. Yay! I'm so happy! :happybonbon: I got hired permanently to the company where I have been working as a semi-entrepreneur for nearly 2 years. Also got a noticeable  raise to my salary. Now I can get myself an appartment with  a couch and a washing machine. Later on I'll buy myself a Harley-Davidson and hopefully a gun.

  18. 30 laps around the Sun and counting. I'm starting to feel a bit old...ish. :happy_twi: Now it would be great to look back and think of all those great things I have accomplished so far. Or at least should have. Well, let's also be realistic and keep our focus on the future, shall we.

  19. Jebin! I have a metal particle in my eye again. You can say that I'm blessed because it happened again this year. Thanks to my socialist government I only have to pay once per year when I need to use health care services (I hope it's still the case}.:HappyPinkie: Screwing up twice a year brings my average payment per visit down to around 25 $. I wonder how many hours I need to stand in the que though

    1. Fintale

      Nevermid, the particle disappeared during the night. :happy_twi: I'm so glad I didn't have to go to a doctor.

  20. I heard that you should spend the Christmas with the ones that you love. Well, I spent my Christmas doing rust repairs on my car. Does that count? I hope so. I don't want be a weirdo. :pwease:

      It could be tolerable if you weren't into ponies too emote.RDlaugh.png

  21. That awkward moment when Chinese visa application asks the birthdays of your mother and father and you realize you have no clue. :shocked:How can they expect me to know such personal information about my parents. We are not that close. Besides I'm an adult, other people affecting my life like this feels a bit unpleasant. Thankfully my sister knew and saved my butt. :happybonbon:

  22. Well, I was wondering how come I'm out of money this time of the month. It turned out my oh-so-lovely depriving sosialist government is stealing MY money. Apparently I haven't paid enough income tax and now it has jumped to almost 28%. In case someone was wondering I'm a "welthy" *#%# who made 3150 $ this month and had to pay almost 870 $ in income tax. This is outrageous! :anger: And on top of this I had to pay a property tax of 450 $ during the last 2 months. Aaand not to forget I have to pay a mandatory 230 $ entrepreneus pension each month. How am I supposed to pay my bills and eat. :fluttersmith: This is just awful.

  23. Waiting 1,5 hours in the hospital at 2am for the doctor to get a metal particle out of your eye is somewhat unpleasant. Then it only took a couple of minutes of eye scratching and poking to get the dirt off. Well, at the time it felt like forever (not to mention disgusting).

      Ewww. I hope you're alright.

  24. My cousin looked somewhat confused when he saw a Rainbow Dash plushie on my desk yesterday. Thankfully I had hide all my other pony stuff. He was confused enough seeing only this one. Maybe I'll shock him next time. :HappyPinkie:

  25. On my way from Helsinki to Beijing! I'm feeling a bit nervous because I have never been in an airplane and of course I have to travel alone.:nnghaloo:
