Oh yeah, I might add to the fact that I prefer taking my chances with 
synthetic oil and all the loosened gunk, that I'm the type of person who 
has a habit of trying to "test" things to see if they will break.  
Especially right after I buy them, since if they're gonna break I want 
them to before I'm depending on them (and sometimes before the warranty 
runs out or my receipt gets to old).

My girlfriend tells me it's not a good way to enjoy my new toys.
