As long as it's not his Achilles' heel, it's all good, I would suspect.

Comment: My boyfriend is saying that once a car gets over 300K miles that
the dealer will buy it back. He says they like to show these cars off in
commercials since 300k is an impressive feet.

I think this smacks of urban legend.

It's true. His head is burried under the Pirates of the Carribean ride, and his torso is burried under Space Mountaine. However, he left his hart in San Famcisco.

They are not forzen in carbon, however. They are carbonated in forzen.
