It was bizarre, had to stick a 2 kW electric heater under the engine for 2 hours before she would fire up. Never had a problem with the engine cranking, just with the fuel igniting. It was literally dripping out the exhaust pipe.
Back in college days in 1969 we used aluminum trays with red hot charcoal, slid under the oil pan to warm it up. Back then impoverished students did not have "plug-ins" for electric block heaters.

The charcoal thing worked well if one monitored it. I can imagine boiling Pennzoil was not conducive to good lubrication. But our vehicles were Junkers (an early Yugoslavian import, before the infamous Yugo). And if they blew up, the city of Saint Paul towed it and there was no penalty for forgetting about the car. The City just scrapped it after a month.

I meant in the Matrix. The blue pill would let one go back to sleep & stay in the Matrix.

Aleve works like that for me sometimes, when my sinuses get going.


(and the Red Pill is Ibuprofen!)

Are you talking about Bond girls or batteries?
Bond girls are not battery dependent...

I guess that is why they called them shepherds.

OK, I think it's now time to get back on topic, y'all. This kind of discussion is best kept in the Pentaxian Lounge/General Talk area.

Edit: please disregard my request. I have been advised that this thread has been 'approved' to go off topic.

Well, it's been fun. I was hoping we'd make 3000 posts by Elvis' (and my) birthday, but Ash is right. This stuff belongs in 'General'.

I don't think the OP is going to come back to tell us where all the clients are who care about Ricoh diminishing the Pentax brand (but wouldn't be excited to see a K-3 in use!).
