What does my vending machine voodoo doll mean?

So I got one of those fun voodoo dolls from the vending machine and I was kinda disappointed that it didn’t come with a paper saying what it represented and I couldn’t find the meaning of it anywhere online. It’s all yellow, it has a long light green sleeveless coat and black eyes that have white bunny ear looking things covering the eyes. It’s also looking mostly to it’s right and has it’s right arm up and the other down.

The ones from the vending machines are just a bit of fun and meant to be an accessory for your keyring, key chain or mobile phone etc.

Is the 2.7 liter engine in the mid to late 1990s Toyota Tacoma underpowered?

I am looking for my first truck. I was wondering if the 2.7 liter engine in the Toyota Tacoma underpowered and should I look for the v6 engine. I want something that is good on gas and reliable, but still able to do some work and tow something.
Thanks.

i think there’s some misconception. taco’s are mini trucks. assuming the role of the hilux. as such, mini trucks can’t do what a heavier weight class platform can do. that is pull weight cross country @ hwy speeds over mountain roads.
the 2.7 was an improvement over the 2.4. but it’s still an I4. it will do what many bigger trucks will do at very low speeds and around town, save bed payload. and since toy uses ASIN running gear, one knows the rear springs can be beefed up with no worries for axle or drive train/brake issues. increasing bed payload. they can be over taxed around town. won’t hurt it.
the V6 is arguably better. still, there are those *4x4ers* that prefer the I4 as the V6 has more weight and a higher center of gravity. for them, the extra power is not off set by those issues. 4x4ing aside, the V6 will obviously hold a hill better when loaded @ hwy speeds. but still can’t compete with a V8 under those conditions.

since i’ve owned/worked on a lot of these, and i live in a mountain valley home, not unlike the great white north, here would be my critieria for chosing one or the other.

utility use, snow, not much hwy driving, the I4 is what you want. 2WD or 4×4 config.
utility use, snow, lots of hwy commuting, the V6 is prolly what you want.

the V6 can actually get better hwy mpg by going to 32-33" wheel/tire combo (six lug 4×4 config only). remove the tail gate as well. no drag there. easy to do. 14 mm socket and cross point screw driver, and it’s in your hands.

with the V6, you definately want reciepts for last timing belt and water pump changes. water pump is under the timing gear. timing belt should be replaced every 90,000 mi or 72 months. both engines are non-interference type. so no engine damage will occur if they break. (actually the I4 is chain driven. and damage always occurs when those break. regardless of no vlave to piston contact) however, on the V6, labor to change those costs 300-400 buvks. so if there re no reciepts for that, that would be a bargining chip to lower a sale price. that said, the coolent in the V6 should be prestine. indication of over-all coolent/water pump condition.
and receipts are a must as anyone can say anything to sell a vehicle.
hope that helped.
owner,
2 hilux’s. ’92 4×4 V6 and ’86 4×4 I4. those are both slightly less powerfull than your next gen tacos.

with the V6 4×4, no changes other than 33" wheel/tires and no tail gate, i get 27~ mpg hwy.

EDIT,
since the recall on head gaskets for the 3.0 was done, there is no head gasket issues with the 3.0′s anymore.
the 3.0 and the post "95.5 3.4 engines both have right side exhaust cross over going over the bell housing to the other side. with a 4×4 in 4×4 low, high rpms for a good amount of time, both have head heating issues on the #5 & #6 jugs. louvering the hood near the fire wall helps to minimize that issue.

2.How long is the life of nuclear waste?

How long is the life of nuclear waste? Also can you provide me with a website to look more into the subject?

80 million years

Plutonium is a transuranic radioactive chemical element with the symbol Pu and atomic number 94. It is an actinide metal of silvery-gray appearance that tarnishes when exposed to air, and forming a dull coating when oxidized. The element normally exhibits six allotropes and four oxidation states. It reacts with carbon, halogens, nitrogen, silicon and hydrogen. When exposed to moist air, it forms oxides and hydrides that expand the sample up to 70% in volume, which in turn flake off as a powder that can spontaneously ignite. It is radioactive and can accumulate in the bones. These properties make the handling of plutonium dangerous.

Plutonium is the heaviest primordial element by virtue of its most stable isotope, plutonium-244, whose half-life of about 80 million years is just long enough for the element to be found in trace quantities in nature.[3] Plutonium is mostly a byproduct of nuclear reactions in reactors where some of the neutrons released by the fission process convert uranium-238 nuclei into plutonium.[4]

Both plutonium-239 and plutonium-241 are fissile, meaning that they can sustain a nuclear chain reaction, leading to applications in nuclear weapons and nuclear reactors. Plutonium-240 exhibits a high rate of spontaneous fission, raising the neutron flux of any sample containing it. The presence of plutonium-240 limits a sample’s usability for weapons or reactor fuel, and determines its grade.

Plutonium-238 has a half-life of 88 years and emits alpha particles. It is a heat source in radioisotope thermoelectric generators, which are used to power some spacecraft. Plutonium isotopes are expensive and inconvenient to separate, so particular isotopes are usually manufactured in specialized reactors.

Will I get a ticket for locking my motorcycle to a light pole with a chain?

I live in a rough part of Phoenix AZ and feel unsafe leaving my motorcycle in the parking lot unchained. Would i get a ticket by chaining my bike to a light post? It would be on the gravel next to the sidewalk.

Most likely you won’t unless the bike is parked directly on the side walk itself. I had the same problem in an apartment complex I used to live in. I couldn’t leave my bike in the parking lot or in the covered garage without fear that someone would lift it onto a truck. Chaining your bike up to the pole or something in moveable is probably the best solution for you. I used to roll mine into my living room each day after a ride because I didn’t have a pole. Haha.
Anyways, hopefully you won’t get a cop who is a jerk or having a bad day – because this location is subjective and not really conforming with Phoenix AZ Law.

Winter Driving – Tire Chaining

0 Winter Driving   Tire ChainingWinter often means snow-covered and icy roads. Experienced truckers know that the lighter the load, the less traction the tires have. Even trucks hauling heavy loads can lose traction in snow and ice. One of the most important things about driving a commercial motor vehicle during adverse weather conditions is to maintain vehicle traction. Ice, snow, and high winds all work towards reducing traction as well as visibility.

Tire chains are one of the best tools to help maintain traction when the road surfaces are covered in winter precipitation. In this video we will show you how to install tire chains on your commercial vehicle. Extreme conditions are not the best time to learn how to install tire chains, so inspect them and practice installing prior to needing to actually use them!

Please remember, even though you might have great traction and the experience to drive in less-than-perfect road conditions, the other driver might not!

Review of the Glacier Light Truck Cable Snow Tire Chains on a 2010 Toyota Tacoma – etrailer.com

0 Review of the Glacier Light Truck Cable Snow Tire Chains on a 2010 Toyota Tacoma   etrailer.comhttp://www.etrailer.com/chains-2010_Toyota_Tacoma.htm

Today on our 2010 Toyota Tacoma we'll be test fitting the Glacier Cable Snow Tire Chains for light trucks, part number pw2021c. Now these are perfect for the occasional use and feature a rugged steel wire covered with case hardened steel rollers for traction. To begin our test fit we'll go ahead and lay the chains out on the ground making sure that we get any kinks or tangles out of them.Where we can now place them over the tire making sure that the cross chain are centered on the tire tread. Now we also want to make sure that the hook of our cross chain faces out. Another way to tell that you're mounting the chains correctly is the yellow tag mounted to each chain. This tag indicates the direction of travel that the chain will move in as well as what side of the vehicle to mount it.We'll move to the inside and connect the two ends of the side chain here together.

Note: Videos are provided as a guide only. Refer to manufacturer installation instructions and specs for complete information.
