  Car Talk Signs with NPR through 2009
This week, NPR and Car Talk hosts Tom and Ray Magliozzi agreed to contract extension that keeps the hit show on NPR stations through the end of the decade.
Car Talk is public radio's most popular entertainment program, airing on 587 stations with more than 4.2 million listeners a week tuning in for an hour-long tune-up on car advice and fun.
NPR has distributed Car Talk since 1987, so the current agreement will take the brothers "well past our 20th year of nationally syndicated bad car advice," says Tom.

 NOLA.com: Car Talk Forum
Here how you find an average for car wrecks for everybody: You count all the car wrecks, then you count all the humans, then you divide all the car wrecks by all the humans.
Example: one son has 2 car wrecks, the other one have zero car wrecks, 2 sons divide into 2 car wrecks equal 1 car wreck per son.
To tell me the average person has one big car wreck in their life time is pointless becuase if 2 others had no wrecks and I had one the average is one per a person.

 Car Talk
You don't say what kind of car you have, but when you put a car with independent rear suspension up on a lift, the wheels do angle in as the car hangs there -- suspended underneath by the frame.
Tom: And when you put the car back on the ground, the wheels still angle in at first, until the car is driven around and the suspension geometry has a chance to sort itself out.
So if you saw the car just after it came down from the lift, you might have thought it was damaged.

 Car Talk
We have two options: either the car is a closed system or an open system; if closed, then by P29, it’s determined to act in just this definite way, so it ain’t broke.
If not, then either it’s an open part of a (bigger) closed system (car + environment) or not; if not, then we can’t repair the car (to repair something is to intervene among the causes of dysfunction & open systems lack ultimate causes--events are either brute facts or effects of hidden variables).
Any explanation of the problems here must be of the form cause C brought it about that effect E -- not someone doesn’t want the car to run.
