Jump-starting the car by connecting the jumper cables to high-voltage power lines: Is that safe?

Can I use duct tape to fix a blown head gasket?

• Colorado finally finishes the Denver outer belt and signs the entire loop I-470.

• Colorado completes six-laning of I-70 between Denver and Aspen.

• No more Sunday Traffic jams heading from the mountains to Denver on I-70 Eastbound.
