This thread seems to be about people refusing to learn from poor decisions.

I feel like many of your threads are about people failing to learn and repeating mistakes. Rewiring the mind; one of the most difficult things to do. It takes deliberate effort, introspection, and perseverance.

Yeah, but what was the underlying reason it blew? If the head is warped, replacing the gasket won't help anything. I thought Xist said the car had overheated?
