Unhappy Is it bad?

How bad is it to run your car with no oil in it? I noticed it was making a funny noise and stuff but just figured it was normal. The noise sounds like something is grinding. Is that bad? Help please. Thanks in advance.

Unless you've been running it without oil for a while, then you're screwed

I think you use sunflower for extra lub-ri-mi-cation

But on a more serious note, how long has it been since there was oil in it?
