Bad, Family, and Phone: 2 When my grandfather was young he owned a roadside motel, and my mother used to do work around the motel for the family. The building was old and they had bad pipes, so visits from the plumber were a fairly regular occurrence over there At one point they had a clogged toilet after a guest checked out, so they called the plumber to come and clean it out. The plumber came in with his bag of gear and set to work, but the clog was stubborn After a few tries, he decided he needed to get the snake I don't know if you've ever seen a serious plumbing snake, but the big ones are a sight to behold. This isn't a little crank auger, it's a full-on electrical powered snake with a big motor on the back and a little grabby claw on the end So he fires up the snake and sends the metal coil down into the pipes with the claw closed, figuring whatever's down there he'll just bump it a bit, push it down the pipes until it clears - but this doesn't happen either. Finally, in frustration, he twists the control to open the mechanical claw at the end of the coil, closes it on something, throws the motor in reverse and starts to pull it back up By now a couple of members of the staff have gathered in the room to try and tigure out what the hell got flushed down the toilet that this giant machine couldn't remove. The motor is really straining you know that sound an electric motor makes when it's working really hard? The whole machine is struggling to pull whatever this is back up through the pipes and into the roonm Finally, after an extended wait, the object is slowly dragged, sopping wet, out of the toilet bowl - and it's a shower curtain, The staff is dumbfounded. They're trying to figure out how this could have happened. It would be weird enough if the guest had ripped the shower curtain down and flushed it down the toilet, but the shower curtain in the room is still there. It would be even weirder if the guest had brought their own shower curtain to the motel and tried to flush it down the toilet, but it's clearly one of their shower curtains. Did they try and steal the shower curtain, leave with it, then feel guilty and come back only to find that the shower curtain had already been replaced, and then flush the shower curtain down the toilet to hide the evidence? While they're discussing this, the room phone rings The person on the other end is screaming, hysterical, so it takes a few minutes for them to figure out that it's the housekeeper who was cleaning the rooms. After a few moments, the manage to get the story out of her: The snake had missed the clog entirely. Rather than spiraling down into the plumbing where it was intended to go, it had wound its way into the central line, and then back up the pipes in the room next door. It spiraled its way up, out the toilet bowl, and then started flailing wildly around the next-door bathroom like a Lovecraftian nightmare made of steel, knocking things off of shelves and clattering furiously around the room. Then, while the hapless housekeeper watched in horror, a metal claw opened on the end of it and snagged the shower curtain, ripped it off the bar ring-by-ring, spun it around the room until it was coiled tightly around the cable, and dragged it back down into the toilet bowl The actual clog was never found 10980 Because a shower curtain would really go through the pipes like that

Bmw, Fail, and Memes: HH NEWS Supra rumour mill latest suggests up to 400bhp, hybrid and non-hybrid petrols plus the creation of a Toyota performance sub-brand Via @carthrottlenews - Ah, the Toyota Supra rumour mill. That ever turning, frequently contradictory rumour mill that we can’t help but pay attention to. Wondering what it has for us today? Allow us to continue… The latest report comes from Autocar, and the big news being touted is that the Supra will form the beginnings of a new Toyota performance sub brand. Toyota’s take on BMW’s M Division, if you will. This is something which has been rumoured in the past, but has failed to materialise. With a Supra successor however, Toyota would have the perfect product to launch such a thing, particularly as power outputs of up to 400bhp are still being reported. The 400bhp, range-topping version is expected by many to be a twin-turbo V6 hybrid, and the presence of a six-cylinder petrol-electric motor combo was sort of confirmed by an electric motor-like whine heard in spy footage released earlier in the year (above). Autocar expects there to be 2.0-litre, four-cylinder models lower down in the pecking order, with up to 300bhp on tap. Since it’d be blasphemy for a BMW to run a V6 instead of a straight-six, it’s expected that Munich’s side of this joint sports car project with Toyota - which will result in a Z4-replacing ‘Z5’ - will run its own engines. We can anticipate the usual range of four and six-cylinder engines, and who knows, maybe there’ll be a Z5M with the M3-M4’s angry S55 straight-six.
