Why is your blinker on?

Also, your temp should be 0.3C higher.

Sorry for that bit I cheated


Although it was quite possible today but I was meeting other half for lunch around 12:30 and she doesn't like it when I'm late...


Temperature in the shade was also favourable at the time around 5.5, given the (almost) perfect 12:34 and 5.0 or 5.5 for the temperature. (temperature gauge ticks in half only so wouldn't be possible to have 5.6 anyway

Yes, he should have drained the tank to just the whiff of an oily rag, but then revved the engine to maximum (and hope that it uses 20L/100 km at those revs), and switched the hazard lights on!

Bad planning, Love Doctor. You need to drive another 1,000,000 km and do it all again. But properly, this time!

(But: awesome job! I can't believe you planned this so well, to the extent of setting your trip meter to zero when your odometer was on 122,667 km and waiting for a 12° day before driving your car... well played!)

It's a form of OCD. It's on the spectrum.

My best mate is OCD. The toaster has to be perfectly level with the wall, and the kettle must be at 45 degrees to the kettle, but not just in his home. He rearranged my kitchen appliances on many occasions. He does it everywhere. For the first 6yrs of his marriage, he used to shut his wife and son in the living room every Saturday morning whilst he cleaned the house from top to bottom.

But this photo really sums up his level of OCD. Without wishing to be gross, it's the bathroom wall of my local pub in the UK, directly above the urinals, and it drives him bonkers.

Revs and speed don't match the rest......due to that Dr.EE can safely say that you DO NOT suffer from OCD :P a proper sufferer would've seen to get this to match an'all!!

Blueangel gave you everything you need to know—except the answer to your question.

OCD is obsessive-compulsive disorder. Examples of what sufferers do (obsessively and compulsively) are in Blueangel's post.

To be fair, I'm not sure I could concentrate fully on the task at hand (so to speak), faced with that. It could get a little messy in there.
