That equates to around 180,000 miles on a car. We got 250,000 out of our previous minivan and it was far from religiously maintained. 10,000 hours should be fairly easy with proper maintenance.

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
