HEY TR CHECK THESE OUT! SPARK PLUGS!

ok i was on carparts.com and found these under the performace section on my jeep wrangler, they are $24.99 for 2, just wanted to here your side of the story since you know all about this stuff, have a good one! heres what it says they do...

From HKS

Spark Plugs
The new HKS Super Fire Spark Plug is equipped with a double platinum, fine wire, center electrode and a tapered side electrode. Although the HKS Super Fire plugs are a high performance plug, these plugs will still allow for easy start ups and prevent misfires during warm up. The insulator is a perfect blend of materials, volumes, and measurements designed to maximize the elimination of detonation.

Looks like someone is getting $12.50 for a $1. spark plug....

Wonder if they kiss you, or it's a dry f**k...?

"""a perfect blend of materials, volumes, and measurements designed to maximize the elimination of detonation."""" Wow, Don't you just love Marketing people? [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif[/img][img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/tongue.gif[/img]

The Marketing guy says:

"I have removed an aqueous solution from my body, allowing it to maximize its metabolic ability to process carbohydrates, while at the same time leaving it lighter, leaner, and faster in any physical exertion it may experience. I think you should do this also"

The Jeep guy says:

"I took a whizz."

Re: HEY TR CHECK THESE OUT! SPARK PLUGS!

Yep, and someone will buy them based on that gimmick. Heck, if I could market canned dog crap, there are people out there that would buy it, even if I labeled it as such and weren't fallacious in my advertising. If I mentioned it was to be used as face cream, you can bet people would believe it and use it regularly.

I love history. That reminds me of what the Romans and Greeks used to use as toothpaste. Yep, human urine. Fact is though, they were right. The ammonia in the urine used to do a wonderful job cleaning their teeth, probably tasted like crap though. [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img][img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/cool.gif[/img]

Re: HEY TR CHECK THESE OUT! SPARK PLUGS!

If it tasted like 'Crap', it wasn't JUST urine....
I'll stick to baking soda and salt (hold the urine!).
That seems to have served my teeth well for almost 40 years, and don't cost much either.
Or so my dentist say anyway....
---------------------------------------

Anybody want to buy some, "perfectly blended and tested" (used) spark plugs for $12.50 each?
When they are used around here, they have be THROUGHLY tested (to death some would say)....
Snap them up now while they are only $12.50 each, supplies are unlimited, so act now!
