Re: Questions for the Grylliade Non-Hive Mind

Yeah, it ran off the battery after smoking the alternator, but when the alternator got replaced is when it did it lost spark. Probably some missing connection in there, but I think the engine came out of another car and it's all frankenwiring in there, so finding the lost connection is a job for so...

To clarify I meant the time frame is for both. That's because I have self control issues and have never eaten less than a half dozen fresh KK in a sitting. Better men may consume more frequently.
