"You are an idiot if you modify your model A in any way."

The bad news: 99.9% of us are therefore "idiots".

The good news: Being an idiot explains a lot of things I've done over the years!

Crankshafts must be stored standing on end or they will become warped .

I've heard that one a lot, too. I wonder though: If you stand it on end, won't it eventually droop over like a wilted flower?? Or if you hang it vertically, won't it elongate like a wet noodle??
