Orange is the new black has no fucking idea what diabetes is. The writers there have no idea what it is, how it works, how insulin works, how food works, they really know nothing. Seriously, if we portrayed any other minority with that much inaccuracy they’d have the show shut boycotted. I actually really enjoy the show, but stop being fucking ignorant as fuck when it comes to diabetes.
Meanwhile google “OITNB Diabetes” and the only goddamned thing that comes up is how Boo lost 50 fucking lbs. Yep, thats diabetes for ya! lol gtfo
That is all.

A feint rattle became a monstrous knocking, and thats when I knew it was time to buy a bolted flywheel from Clarks. So out with the powerpack.
After it was out and I was awaiting parts I removed all the old rubber engine to body seals. Best way I found was to lightly grind all the staples. When the parts arrived I riveted the new seals in.
The old clutch was oil covered and was worn through the rivets. Strange though, the car drove fine. The pressure-plate has stress fractures in it and the flywheel was extremely loose.
Found this beauty while inspecting the transmission for a slight second gear grind.
Clarks sent the wrong pressure plate and so I’m still waiting. They are making good on it though.
I received my Solex (Clone) 34 PICT-3 and intake from singlecarbconversions.com and the overall quality is great. I’ve rebuilt quite a few racks of carbs, but for the GL I wanted to experiment a bit. Its not that I couldn’t rebuild the GL assembly, but that I wouldn’t. The install was easy, and although I could have made this intake myself, it was nice to rely on someone else’s craftsmanship for once. I assume the gentleman who made it has a jig setup because everything was spot on. The time invested in making a jig and then the intake wouldn’t be worth it in the end. I got a small filter with a barb for the breather and powder-coated over the cheap chrome. Initially the bike starts up and idles great, even cold. As it warms up, the engine seems to load up with gas and get a bit choppy. I think it just needs to be leaned out a bit. It seems to ride ok. I’ll figure out the tuning when its not 20 degrees outside.
Dang. This is incredible.
What screams the 90’s more than Swirl paint and hair metal? Nothing! ….except Gameboy.
So I decided since I’m installing a backlight screen from https://handheldlegend.com/ I decided to swirl paint the case.
Please note this is before the clear coat. Once its all cleared the colors will be much brighter.
And for good measure, heres a pic of Vai with his Ibanez.
