Friedrich Nietzsche, German philosopher coined the phrase, "God is dead".

On his tombstone are the words, "Nietzsche is dead. Signed God".

Thanks,

Found on Ferrari Chat discussion on the "Italian Tune-up"

From Pat Bradens Alfa Owner's Bible:

The Italian Tune-Up is No Myth

You’ve sunk your next five years’ paychecks into this sweet Italian beauty and you’re not going to abuse it, by golly. You shift at 2500 rpm and never go over 70 mph. To prove your point, the car needs tuning so often now that if you really put your foot into it you’re sure something would explode. That’s Italian cars for you.

Somewhere, right now in Italy, someone’s driving exactly the same car as yours. His right foot is pressed firmly to the floor, where it has been for the last three hours. The rubber on the brake pedal shows no perceptible wear. The speedometer and tachometer are both trying to bury themselves offscale. His arms are weary from cranking the wheel back and forth as he negotiates the mountain roads. His eyes gleam and his heart is glad for he has never once had cause to do more than regular maintenance to his thoroughbred of a car that has uncounted kilometers on its engine. He’s right and you’re wrong!"

An Observation, and true story:
It's new years eve, and Belinda and I watch as the movers drive off will all our stuff, headed for Texas.
She says: "There they go, with all our lives and memories."
And I say: "No, there they go with a tractor-trailer load of stuff we're going to prove over the next two weeks that we can totally live without."

This is CORRECT! As a Divorce Survivor, my ex took EVERYTHING from MY house. Actually she wanted to force me to live in my car, but then she decided she wanted those too. This did not work out for her, as the State of Illinois wanted to be sure I was not "homeless" or they mught have to take care of me.
Anyway, I was AMAZED how well my minimalist life style works! Much less junk to take care of, and any NEW junque is MINE!
An excellent learning experience.

Oh yeah--divorces.

Ours was a surprise to my friends and I explained the problem as:

"We all have our idiosyncrasies--she could not stand being treated well and I could not stand being treated badly."

Don't mean to contradict you Gordon, but you may want to consider that the excellent learning experience is "make sure you have a solid pre-nup". Cheers, James
