How many miles over 400000 can one expect and what are the first major things to go and after what point do you stop fixing?

Answer . \nMy 190e now has 84000 on the clock.The only major work was the battery tray rusted away causing an MOT failure.. Answer . These cars are "SOLID" at least from my experience. I am 400 miles away from 200,000 miles and it still runs like a top! I have done general maintenence, Belt, Gaskets, Spark Plugs, Brake Pads, and Spark Plug wires. Only kind of "major" work I've done was replaced the Water Pump, and replaced the Alternater, and Alignment. All I can say is my car is a TANK as I refer to it. LOL Keep changing the oil regularly and these cars should last a LONG TIME!\n. \n. \nYes! These cars are tanks and shuould last well over 200K MILES ONLY if they are well maintained. I have seen some 190s with close to 350K miles and yet others in pretty bad shape just after 60K miles. The 190D on the other hand (especially the 2.2 liter) is indestructable. I love these old cars - they are an icon of an era when craftmanship and durability were still valuable. If the car keeps running I would encourage anyone to do general maintenence to keep it going. However, I would give up on a car after my three strike rule - three consecutive $500+ repairs within 1 year or 15K miles. But for most of us, we dump money into these cars because we love them, not because it makes any rational financial sense!

How do you get over a relationship when your girfriend has walked out i had no warning we never argued she said she has an insane jealousy about me i could not even go to work without been accused?

Answer . Even though you are upset, your girlfriend did do the right thing for both of you by ending the relationship. You cannot have a healthy relationship when a person feels they have a right to control your actions and behavior (and in this case, your work) due to their jealousy and insecurity. When you spend more time trying to 'fix' a relationship or appease a controlling partner, the relationship has run its course. Your ex has made her break, and now you need to make yours. You need some uninterrupted time to get your head and heart back together; time away from her, and with no contact with her.

I was talking to this guy and things were fine at first but then things start to go wrong he said its over and didn't want a relationship but then 3 months later he makes an excuse to email me why?

He may have been scared of his feelings or commitment in a relationship, he may have liked someone else at the time or he may have just decided he didn't want to be in that relationship at the time. To recontact you he may have just been thinking about you and wanted to talk or has something specific to ask or he could possibly be interested in you again. As I can only speculate not knowing the situation he is the only one that knows the truth and his feelings so it would be better to talk to him and find out.. One he just thought he would shoot you off an email. Two he realized that he really did like you and miss you. Three he had another relationship within that 3 monthes and has reallized what he gave up. Four he just wants to be friends

What does it mean to do the same thing repeately but expecting a different outcome?

Some say, the definition of insanity is doing the same thing but expecting a different result. When you use the same thought process, same approach, maybe same system over and over again and still getting the same result, it's time to change the above mentioned. Kind of like if you were to get in your car....and make car noises but the car doesn't start. You really want the car to start, and day after day you go and sit in your car and make car noises. Stop and think, how else will this car start. Hmmmm. Maybe use the key, then the car will start. Another saying, there isn't one way to skin a cat....ouch...I know sounds terrible but basically the same idea. There are several methods you just have to keeping trying until you get your result you want. IF? You have tried everything including what everyone else even suggests then maybe it's time to find a new goal or different outcome. Be flexible because life isn't!

So this guy said things over and over again to me and I fell madly in love But now he just stopped talking to me all together I am torn up and wondering how do I get over my first love?

try talking to him first, and if you haven't already, tell him how much you care about him.I know this isn't what you want to hear, but if he doesn't understand, he's not worth it, and you can get over him by deleting anything from him eg. texts, emails, msn history, even any pictures of the two of you. Then delete any ways of contacting him again so you won't be tempted, and then start a new extrememly time-consuming hobbie, it'll take a while but it'll work, and if you work/ go to school with him then you'll have to find a way to not see him again. Hope I helped, xxx. the easy way to get over someone is not talking o them at all. if you talk to him/ her it may just cause more problems. i have date this guy for almost three years. he broke up with me n i couldn't stop thinking about him then i finally got over him in a heart beat i started hanging with my friends and i mite this nice guy named joesph ray brown. he is 21 and makes me happy i love him to death but i just hope i helped you ... show him u don't care about it anymore and he is not a problem to you nemore... xoxox love alisha rigsby:$

Some of the procedures may be the same, but every case is unique, just like with people.

Why is it that i do the same things and expect different results?

That's the definition of insanity. Don't worry, we all do it. A lot of what we do is from habit and a habit is one of the hardest things to change. If you know you are going to repeat what is probably a bad behavior, think before you do it and make a choice not to. Be aware of what you are doing and change it. You have to be honest with yourself, but after a while, you do it without thinking and you will realize that you have changed your behavior and are not making the same mistake over and over.

How is feedback different from saying the same thing over and over again?

Feedback generally has a specific purpose, and is often provided under a specific circumstance. Some of the occasions when you might receive feedback include: an evaluation of your academic work (a project, a term paper, etc); being given advice after you have completed some task at work; or being told how you are doing after you have been at your job for a certain period of time. Sometimes, therapists also provide feedback, letting a client know about the progress (or lack of progress) that has been made recently. Usually, feedback is given by a supervisor or someone who is more experienced than the person receiving it. For example, a student (let's call her Julia) sends a professor the rough draft of her term paper. The professor provides Julia with feedback-- advice about how to improve the paper and what needs to be included in order to get a good grade. Or at work, a supervisor provides an employee (let's call him David) with feedback because David is new and is not following company rules: the supervisor believes David is a good guy and is making mistakes out of not knowing the right way to do things, so the supervisor has a private meeting with David and offers feedback about how he can do a better job. Sometimes, feedback may need to be delivered more than once because the person receiving it finds it difficult to make the improvements being requested. And sometimes, even though feedback is supposed to be for the purpose of helping the other person to improve, the person may take it as criticism and feel offended rather than helped. Also, while feedback is supposed to be to give the person a chance to improve, some supervisors use it as a weapon, to make the employee feel as if he or she is doing a terrible job. But over all, feedback is very different from saying the same thing over and over: feedback is often requested (the student asked her professor, "Am I on the right track with my paper? Is there something I should fix before I turn it in?); or it is part of a review at work (the supervisor called David in and said, "I think you are doing some things very well, but I'd like to discuss with you some ways you can improve and do an even better job"). When a person just says the same thing to you over and over, that's nagging, and it often causes you to tune the person out completely, since nobody likes to be nagged. (On the other hand, the person doing the nagging may feel he or she is just offering feedback-- but that is not a very helpful way to provide it.)

How would your results have differed if you had over titrated added Na OH beyond the endpoint?

Due to the addition of more NaOH than was necessary to reach the endpoint of the titration, the recorded data would show NaOH at a higher concentration, and whatever other chemical in solution (the analyte of the titration) to appear at a lower concentration. If recording the amount of mL of the titrant added to the analyte to reach the end-point of the titration, it would cause the recorded mL needed to be higher than the true amount needed.

Is results and conclusion the same thing?

No. A conclusion is that which brings something to an end. It can be the proposition which an argument is leading to, the state of affairs which a story is leading to, or an event which brings something to a close. Death is the conclusion of our life here on earth. It brings it to an end. Results, on the other hand are consequences or effects. They are what happens because something else happened. Sometimes the results of an important decision or action are very long-lasting and can continue long after the lives of those involved have reached their conclusion.
