moron should have learned to read when he was in grade school.

this void in his education will haunt him the rest of his life, he will never be president of the local drug sales gang chapter if he can't read.

he is doomed to be a spray painter tagger or hub cap stealer the rest of his criminal career.

Tom Greenwood has been a columnist for the Detroit News for over 15 years and probably makes serious money compared to your restaurant work. He made a serious mechanical mistake that could have caused injury. It was not a crime. Here is a case of a penny talking about a half dollar.

the facts in this case calls into question his ability to read, to understand what he reads and if he can understand what he sees when he opens the hood of his car.

My granddaughter Ava is six she can read (read and write cursive as well as printed english text)

Batteries have two terminals called poles, they are marked one with a positive + sign and the other with a negative sign -.

some car manufactures color code the connectors to the battery as well red positive black negative with ground attached.

are you following this so far hope this isn't too fast or technical for you.

this is not like finding the square root of PI or solving e=mc2 or trying to determined if the walls are truly perpendicular to the floor or bending light .

even a writer should be able to place the new replacement battery on the ground in front of the car and align the positive and negative poles with the positive negative poles of the battery in the car.

swap out the old battery and put the new one in the same position as the old one was in.

Ava was sure this would prevent a problem.

this guy should not be out on the streets without adult supervision and get his eyes checked.

Even a small man casts a long shadow at the end of he day. Hence, your long and irrelevant posts.
facts and the harsh reality they reveal seem to confuse you don't they??

reality is the crutch that keeps this whole thing afloat after all.
