Screw in my Fing tire!

I left work yesterday, and notice a few miles down the road that I have a nice shiny self tapping screw right in the middle of my back tire. I figure I need to ride home with the screw in place, and get a new tire tomorrow (now today). Half way home, the back end starts wiggling. I pull over to find the screw came out, and the tire is almost flat. In order to get home I had to use.....I'm ashamed to say it..........fix-a-flat. It still didnt seal, but it slowed the air loss so I could get home. It's totally flat this morning. I just hope it hold air long enough to get to Motorcycles Unlimited and get a new one.

The result of these events is that I had to drive the car to work today. When I start it up, the CEL is on! What next?

On top of that, I had a late (9:30) dinner last night. My jaw popped and locked slightly open while eating pizza. I slept through it, and it unlocked. It still hurts, though.

hey man i have that same jaw thing going on. ive had it for a few years now. it finally got to the point that it locks open sometimes when i wake up and takes a couple hours to unlock. if its any consolation, after six trips to the dentist, they tell me that it cannot be fixed. i will have it forever.

It happened to me a lot when I was younger, but hasnt happened in years. They told me it could be due to the fact that I had braces.

You gotta love this board. A thread about a flat tire turns into a discussion about locked jaws.

grubs plugged it with his little reptilian weenus. and it held for two years. then dissapeared leaving a small transmitter that sends thought waves to a secret Mayan burrito, made of the Scrolls of Nutgeuse in which He Who Cannot Be Named wrote the origional "there once was a man from Nantucket" limmerick.
