 What is your self-worth?

One of our local Twin Cities radio personalities uses the “cylinder index” to judge a person’s stature in life.

Taken from the link below: “a guy's perceived self-worth increases in direct proportion to the number of internal combustion cylinders under his or her control, i.e., their Cylinder Index.” Simply put you can count up the number of cylinders present in the mechanisms that you own and determine your cylinder index and thus your self-worth. As a rule of thumb, everyone should try to keep his cylinder index higher than his age.

I assume that this is directly analogous to the women’s “shoe index,” although from personal experience she will need to maintain a number at least eight times her age.

What is your cylinder index?

I also expected Murf to top this one. Smile

OK, I'll start. Age -> 49, CI -> 92

Wait! Do guns count? Aren't they internal combustion devices?

I'm 55 with a 62 cylinder index. I agree that Murf will most probably win. Ken, if we count guns you will only get further behind, especially if revolvers count as 6 shooters. Sorry!

Shortmagnum, and I thought I had allot of stuff to fix all of the time. Sounds like you're a pretty successful dude. I'm jealous!!

Successful? I'm not so sure. If I broke it down to dollars spent per cylinder owned it would be a very low rating. Smile

Plus 16 of them are two recently rebuilt V8s sitting on engine stands. Other than those, everything else runs and is used.

Ken, guns don't count, nor do air compressors (a gas motor powering them counts though). Wankel engines also count because they have spark plugs. Of course diesels count. I'm a little disappointed in the website I gave above. Some of the pages aren't working. They're kind of fun.

Age 41 CI max was 97 until recently sold three tractors now down to 85. Hope to get it back up soon.

On a similar note, my wife subscribes to the “Men’s Compensation Theory”. That is to say: “That the size of a man’s (you know what) is inversely proportional to the size of their truck (or tractor)”. Therefore, the bigger the truck (or tractor), the smaller their (you know what).

This was part of my reasoning for going with a “compact” utility tractor, didn’t want anyone jumping to an incorrect assumption Wink yeah right

By the way, “kw” I have you beat for a new low. Age 38, CI 15. Woe to me.

I think I'm going to cause too much "Cylinder Envy" with this one, and I'm sure my age is going to only make it worse...

I'll ease into it slowly, I was born in the 60's and my CI is DEFINITELY into the triple digits, in fact just what's at home is tickling 3 digits.

Best of luck.
