Motorcycle Roundabout Gone Wrong

This is a biker gang. On a merry-go-round. Made of bikes. On TV. In Japan.

usually this part of "mechaike" is good practice for students of japanese to learn COUNTERS. if you learn japanese one of the hardest things is counters. in english we say "one man" "two dogs" "three beers" but in japanese we say "man one [counter for people]", "dog two [counter for medium sized animals]", "beer three [cylindrical objects]". I would not phuck with you.
A few years ago, it was difficult to find synthetic motor oils, and equally difficult to find someone who admitted to using them. Nowadays, however, you can find synthetic motor oils on the shelves of Wal-Mart, and other retailers, and the number of people turning to synthetic motor oils, particularly in light of the recent events affecting fuel prices, has risen greatly.

So why do people use synthetic motor oils rather than sticking with the old petroleum based stand-bys which are admittedly cheaper?

1. Let's start with the cost per quart issue. Synthetic motor oils ARE more expensive at purchase. However, these oils last longer, requiring fewer oil changes. As a synthetic motor oil outlasts several changes of petroleum based lubricants, the ultimate out-of-pocket cost of the lubricant is less. This cost savings becomes even greater if you have someone else change your oil for you rather than doing it yourself!
