Just Playin...

That huge tank of helium in the hatchback really helps my FE. I actually passed a tractor-trailer with liquified helium and thought to myself if that was a light load. I had to smack myself with the owners manual after I actually thought about it

I've had several incidences of the mechanical brake cable developing rust and binding in its housing. Applying the pedal or lever will pull the cable and engage the brake. The return spring in the caliper didn't have enough force to return the cable and fully release the brake when the pedal / lever was released.
The wear pattern described implies something misaligned or bent. Check the slide pins on which the caliper should 'float' or slide laterally to accomodate uniform pad wear.
