You're not married to Charlie Sheen are you?

I admit, I don't check my oil between changes - it's never consumed oil between changes before. I've had the oil blackstone tested to determine proper change interval.

BTW - I saved a couple hundred dollars replacing my radiator, by myself. Or swapping the turbo. I've done over 300 hours of work on the car. SO it SUCKS that my husband blew it up.

That bold statement releases your husband of being responsible for checking your oil, IMO. If you're that mechanically inclined and invested 300 hours of your time under the hood, it would be assumed that routine fluid checks would be second nature.

Now as far as downshifting and over-revving the motor.... just be glad the drive train is still part of the car.

I feel for you, Leah. I just had the rear end on my truck rebuilt for $1k and the transmission is next for around $1.5k.

Hey I'm down with that.

Anybody got a light?

I know it is wrong and only tiger's blood for the beast. But I CAN'T GET ENOUGH of this guy. Can't decide if it's a put on, he's crazy, and or he's just eccentric.

I guess this is what having genuine F-YOU money looks like.

My favorite on (it was early on, but still me favorite):

"Get out of my face with your corduroys"

I have the same problem...

I've always liked the guy. He's never been anything more than a "B" actor but still always was rooting for him. Now I'm admittedly confused about his sanity. I think he is probably more shrewd than crazy in a pompous sort of way. Hell with his money I suppose you can be anything you want to be and like Michael Jackson his groupies will condone his every action.

Somebody should have told him by now that it's not good to snort Viagra and to use Viagra as a suppository is an equally bad idea also.

It appears Two and a Half Men is Charlie Sheen in more ways than one.

I think the jury is still out on ole crazy Charlie.

How about another alternative:

FREE ADVERTISING for the show.

This has garnered millions of dollars worth of free advertising.

Anybody that pays any attention already knew Charlie was a bit egocentric. Now it is being used to publicize him and as such, the show.

Since Hollywood is so money driven, I suspect all the nasty comments Charlie has said about the shows producers or whatever will be forgiven and forgotten and now, with the show that everybody knows about, they will be able to charge more for advertising during the show and everybody makes more money at the consumers expense.

I wouldn't be surprised to hear Charlie had dinner last week with the guy he keeps bad mouthing.

but $3M per show? I thought when the people on Friends got $1M per show it was ridiculous. God I got into the wrong business

I wouldn't be surprised. I have watched an interview or two of his since this debacle started. While he argues some drug test he presumably took came back clean, I'm not believing it. He sounds pretty screwed up.

I think they should put Charlie Sheen, Gary Busey and Robert Blake in a dark, damp padded cell and call them 3 and a half nuts.
