In this blog post the Best Auto Resource Blog (B. A. R. B.) would like to take some time to talk about the tote pump and how it qualifies as the best auto resource. Before we engage in this analysis let us first establish that this particular piece of equipment is an auto resource in the first place. In order for a piece of equipment to qualify as an auto resource it must be demonstrated that said piece of equipment is an asset that can be drawn upon by an auto in order to function effectively. This demonstration can be accomplished rather quickly.
ESTABLISHING A DRUM PUMP AS AN AUTO RESOURCE
As a demonstration that a pump is an auto resource consider the following. Autos are comprised of many parts, some of which happen to be pumps. Because autos require its component parts to both exist and function effectively it can be logically concluded that a pump is an auto resource. The question remains, however, as to whether a pump is the best auto resource and not just a good auto resource or an auto resource of some other level of importance. Fortunately it is also a somewhat simple task to establish the pump as the best auto resource.
In order for a component part of an automobile to be considered the best auto resource it must be convincingly argued that without said component part the auto would function less efficiently than it would without any other part. Without getting into the details of the process, the B. A. R. B. ran a series of tests involving every single part that makes up the typical auto. One by one we removed each part and then measured the efficiency of the auto as it ran without that specific part. The tests convincingly demonstrated that the pump was in fact the best auto resource.
Today, your best auto resource happens to be a shuttle from Salt Lake City to Park City as a mode of transportation. This happens to be your very best auto resource because there is no better auto resource among all the other auto resources available. The question is why is there no other auto resource that is as good or better than then one mentioned in the first sentence of this paragraph. There could be many possible answers to this question. Finding the best answer to this question will be the chief aim of this blog post.
PARK CITY TRANSPORTATION IS NOT YOUR BEST AUTO RESOURCE AT THIS POINT IN TIME
Unfortunately this means that Park City transportation is not your best auto resource at this point in time. This by no means should be taken to mean that Park City transportation is an inferior auto resource from an objective stand point. It simply means that when a shuttle from Salt Lake City to Park City is compared to Park City transportation, the shuttle from Salt Lake City to Park City happens to meet more of the requirements used to measure this sort of thing than does Park City transportation.
At this point in the blog post we have still not yet answered the question as to why there is no better auto resource than the one mentioned in the first sentence of the first paragraph of this particular blog post. To answer this question we must ask ourselves (and quickly now because we are half way through the final paragraph of this blog post) just what are the criteria used to determine the best auto resource. This of course is no easy question to answer in the space remaining. As such it must be the subject of a blog post subsequent to this one.
There is a surprising connection between the drum pump and automotive advertising. This connection although surprising is not so easy to explain. Moreover, it probably would not be easy to explain within the confines of a three hundred word blog post. Alas, that being said that is the task that my editors have tasked me with. For that reason there is not another word to waste seeing as this first paragraph has been largely taken up with explaining why this task must be performed rather than explaining the problem itself. Such is the spirit of this problem and such is the matter that must be contended with.
THE TOTE PUMP CONNECTION
For the purposes of this blog post let us make the assumption that drum pumps and tote pumps although different are close enough to be considered the same thing. Therefore, whether we are talking about a drum pump or a tote pump we know that a connection exists between pumps (let us say) and automotive advertising. This connection essentially revolves around the fact that automobiles are composed of various parts some of which would fall into the general category of a pump. Although pumps might be used in the construction of automobiles, this does not necessarily mean that there is a connection between pumps and automobile advertising.
Nevertheless, this connection does exist and we shall attempt to use this last paragraph to establish the parameters of this connection. As consumers of advertising, we (myself and all the readers included) are not aware of pumps being displayed in any capacity in any sort of automobile advertisement. However, we know that the pumps exist within the automobiles displayed in the advertising. The question remains whether this is enough to establish a connection that is worth writing a three paragraph blog post about. The answer is apparently, Yes.
There may well come a day when you will find yourself in need of a body shop Salt Lake City to take that ding out of your car. A ding of course within the context in which I am writing is a small dent in the exterior of your car’s body. There is no functional reason to have this ding repaired. Essentially your car will function as well regardless of whether you have the ding repaired or not. But still there is something in your head that insists it must be repaired. This is your ego speaking to you my friend.
THE EGOIC NATURE OF THE BODY SHOP SALT LAKE CITY
When you think about it, the body shop is performing the function of repairing your ego every bit as much as it is repairing that ding in your car. Once the ding is repaired you begin to feel better about yourself until the next ding comes into your life. Now mind you, this ding need not be on your car. Nor does it need to be a ding on one of your physical possessions. No, the next ding could be a ding to your health, or career, or your finances for example.
So what then is the solution? I am not suggesting that you not have that ding repaired. I am not suggesting that you drive your car around town trying not to feel bad about that ding. No, the ding that must be repaired is a ding that resides deeper within yourself. And let me tell you, this ding is not an easy ding to repair and certainly not a ding that I can repair for you in a three hundred word blog post. But what I can do is point out to you that the ding which you find yourself upset about is not the ding in your car. Let’s start with that.
Sooner or later you are going to require the professional skill that only a body shop Salt Lake City can provide. Most likely you will require this service after your car has been in a collision either with another vehicle or some stationary object. You will require this service because the aforementioned collision will have caused damage to the body of your automobile. This damage will not only be unsightly but could potentially be a safety concern. It is for this reason that it is imperative that the damage be repaired by a professional body shop with the skills to return your car back to its original state.
BRINGING YOUR CAR BACK TO ITS ORIGINAL CONDITION WITH A BODY SHOP SALT LAKE CITY
A professional body shop will be able to repair almost any kind of damage your car may have incurred. This will include such minor repairs as the removal of dents and repainting to such major repairs as replacing actual components of the car’s physical structure. These types of repairs cannot be performed by people who do not know what they are doing. This is true because today’s modern automobiles are constructed in such a way so as to deflect damage away from the driver in the event of a collision.
Accordingly, it is important that the auto mechanic who is performing the repair know how to make the repair in accordance with the intent of the car’s original design. This requires a certain degree of training not only in standard auto mechanics but also in the physical structure of automobile architecture. Obviously this training will apply to automobiles in general but also must be specifically, narrowly tailored to apply to specific makes and models of automobiles as well. This way when you drive your car away from the body shop you can rest assured that the repair was done correctly.
It has been one week since Mr. Sackman executed his unintentional Canada goose mascacre on the Apex Peakway and I just thought that I would check in with him and see how he has been holding up. Bob, how are you doing?
BS : Surprisingly I am doing much better. Although I felt kind of guilty at the time it happened in the day since that night I have been processing it all and I know that it was an accident and I ultimately feel that I can forgive myself for what happened.
Do the geese forgive you?
BS : I am not sure that geese possess the ability to forgive. By that I mean, I do not think their intellectual framework includes the concept of or the capacity to forgive another entity for a harm committed upon them.
What makes you think that?
BS : I guess there is no way to know for sure but it is a hunch I have based in no small part upon the size of their heads and the likely size of their brain contained within that little skull.
Just to confirm, there was no damage to your car, correct?
BS : That’s right. My car did not see the inside of an auto body repair Salt Lake City shop.
Does that factor into the way you feel.
BS : No. Why would my car incurring damage have an effect upon whether I felt guilty about killing some Canada geese?
Well, if there was damage that had to be repaired by a collision repair Salt Lake City you might be less inclined to feel guilt because you had to suffer too.
BS : I am not so sure guilt works that way.
You do a lot of thinking about the capacity of other beings to think don’t you? Geese can’t forgive and damage to your car does not impact your level of guilt.
BS : I’m sorry I don’t quite follow you.
Describe the moment you hit the Canada goose with your car. What was going on at the time.
BS : I was late for a meeting. It was a Tuesday evening around 7:30 pm and the lighting was pretty dim. I was probably driving a little faster than I should have been. I drove through the intersection of Route 55 and Apex Peakway. Right at that corner is the Wake Med Medical facility. There is a pond in front of the building where the geese like to swim and they are always walking around in the grass near the road eating what ever it is that the geese eat. A lot of times they walk across the street. This is what happened that night.
So you drove through the intersection and you hit a goose that was in the process of crossing the street.
BS : Yes. I did not see him but I knew exactly what happened when I heard and felt the bump on the car.
Was there any damage to the car? Did you have to take your car into a collision repair Salt Lake City?
BS : No there was no real damage so there was no need to take my car to an auto body repair Salt Lake City but the goose was definitely killed.
How did that make you feel?
BS : I felt terrible. Everyone loves those geese. At the time I was worried about making it to the meeting on time so I just kept driving. I remember sitting in that meeting wondering if I had committed a crime and wondering if I should notify someone about what happened.
I don’t think so. I am pretty sure the crime of cruelty to animals requires a level of intent that I don’t think was present. Also the municipality has people on the payroll who’s job it is to pick up animal carcasses. I think you are in the clear.
The newest sign is up and reads, “TREATMENT IS NOW COMPLETE! STAND TALL & CONTINUE YOUR JOURNEY WITH FAITH, HOPE & ALL OUR LOVE!” At the bottom of the sign is a smiley face. Does this mean that there will be no more signs to follow?
SM : I cannot say that. The sign thing really took me by storm. It is encoded within my DNA at this point. I seriously can not picture myself never ever posting another sign on my front porch.
Maybe you could start something new? The treatment is over after all. Perhaps you could open your own sign shop?
SM : I don’t think so. I am sixty years old and retired. I am financially set for life. I don’t want to open up a business at my age.
Do you think Susan appreciated the signs you have been posting on your front porch?
SM : Of course she does! What a silly question. Why do you ask?
Well, I hate to burst your bubble but I have spoken to a few people in the neighborhood who have expressed that your signs make them uncomfortable.
SM : That’s ridiculous. Everybody loves my signs. The amount of effort I put into them combined with the positive sentiments… What’s not to like?
Maybe some people felt that Susan wanted to maintain a certain level of privacy concerning her illness. The intent behind the signs shop Salt Lake City was clearly well meaning. However, their public display made the whole thing, well, public.
SM : You people are being hyper-critical. Can’t a neighbor do something nice for another neighbor?
See, this is part of the reason this whole episode was awkward. People did not want to tell you this because they were afraid of exactly this reaction.
SM : And so you waited until now to tell me? You waited until I posted the very last sign?
So it is the final sign?
I am sitting here with a car who has just been released from an auto body repair Salt Lake City shop. How was your experience, sir?
C : Well the experience of the accident that forced me to go there was not too pleasant. I was in and out of consciousness while I was being worked on by the mechanics. I don’t think I liked that experience because I much prefer to maintain my wits about me. But I recognize that it was necessary to get to the point where I am now. So on balance I would say I am happy to have had the experience.
What exactly was damaged that required repair?
C : I was rear ended by some other fellow who was not paying attention where he was going. My back fender and trunk were dented in. After the accident the trunk wouldn’t close properly.
That does not sound too bad.
C : No. I got off lucky and the collision repair Salt Lake City shop was able to get me back in good repair without too much trouble. It could have been far worse.
C : Well, my engine could have been damaged for example. A damaged engine is far more expensive to repair (generally speaking) than a dented fender and trunk. The parts are more complicated in an engine and require more finesse to remove and install.
Yes, well thank God that you did not have to have your engine repaired.
C : Agreed. Although I cannot say that I actually believe in a divinity.
I understand. It was just a manner of speech.
C : Right. I get that. It’s just a pet peeve of mine. The language contains all these antiquated references to God that assume the speaker actually believes in God.
Tell me, what is it like to be a sign?
S : Life for signs shop Salt Lake City is not that interesting from the standpoint of action. We don’t physically do all that much. However, it is interesting from a sort of Zen perspective that by doing nothing we actually do quite a lot.
I don’t understand.
S : Of course you don’t. Let me see if I can phrase this another way. Signs and banners created by a sign shop when they are performing their function do not move. They do not move (generally speaking) because it makes them easier to see. And by not moving and thus being easier to see they are more effectively conveying their message.
So it is by doing nothing (that is, standing still) that signs do what they are designed to do which is to convey the content of their message.
S : Precisely!
Do you find satisfaction in that?
S : Certainly. As a human your mind is structured in a more complicated way. There are layers of motivations and competing concerns. However, the mind of a sign is as simple as it appears. We need only perform our function well to achieve satisfaction. That is enough for us.
That sounds nice because it is simple and direct.
S : Indeed. Complication for the sake of complication is a highly overrated quality of the human consciousness.
I’m not so sure that the human consciousness is complicated for the sake of complication by nature. I think perhaps that is more a byproduct of our modern times.
S : So it’s a maladaptive behavior of some sort.
Maybe. In truth I have not fully thought this line of reasoning through but it seems right to me.
S : That’s fine. We can leave it at that for now until the next time that we have the occasion to speak to one another.
