Von Mudra;4277736If it was about the oil, we wouldn't have to be paying 4 bucks a gallon....
Consider yourself lucky, in Europe it's 1.5 Euro per Litre. - That's almost 9 'bucks a gallon'!
Rafterman;4277545If you believe that the Global War on Terror is about finding two men, then you need to do a little more reading. You know, we never found Hitler. I guess WWII was a failure then, right?
Well if terrorists ever kill 3,000+ New Zealanders, we'll see if you feel the same way.
I think nobody knows what War on Terror is about, not even Bush or Cheney, I am serious.
BTW, in Spain we lost 190 persons and we didn't start a war, torture and illegal jails operations, limiting of citizenship rights or racist razzias....they got a fair trial and were put in jail
Well, maybe you can say 190 is not like 3000, but I'll disagree, indeed
@Mudra, you lucky bastards, you can drive those awesome supa heavy cars, this is not fair
Dude, people who get SUVs are normally assholes around here who think that they own the road. They tend to swerve in front of you, cut you off, etc.... I'd never get a SUV...I'm happy with my old Corolla sedan plastered with NRA stickers.
And damn Lightening, that sucks....=/ I really can't wait for the hydrogen fuel cell carsXD

I'd like to second that. All of it. It's really humiliating and irritating when an asshole soccer mom (i shit you not, most of the times it's a woman) passes you on a double-yellow line to get a whole 10 feet in front of you.
You can almost hear the suction sound of their giant Ford Excursions slurping up the gas as they accelerate past you. They put my 71 VW bus to shame. I probably get better mpg than they do too.
Agreed...man I hate SUVs. Not for the pollution reasons, but because of the people who buy them.-___-
You would have a 71 VW Bus!! +1
Rafterman;4277545Well if terrorists ever kill 3,000+ New Zealanders, we'll see if you feel the same way.
I wish that's what happened, at least then we could stop hearing about it. When will that pulverized horse be left alone?
Whooooooah... Coke! You need to clarify that man.

It is a woman thing. I have striven my entire life to remain objective in all things, to never let passion or bias blind me - and I swear I firmly believe that women drivers are far more stupid and inane than men. Men are far more aggressive, there is no doubt: thousands of young men have died over the decades because their testosterone compelled them to respond to the least vehicular challenge. But almost all men who have driven enough to do so without fear are far more aware and alert drivers than women.
Women, as a class, will pay no attention to what is happening around them: getting "boxed in" with no escape route if an emergency occurs; no "driving ahead" by looking not only immediately in front of them but also as much as a mile ahead; no defensive driving, anticipating whether someone might not see them, or pull into their lane without looking, or run a red light.
This I believe. I can do no other.
Some real life experiences with women and cars: I ask "Does your car have a manual or automatic gear box" She says "How I'd suppose to know that???!!!"... Another: Red light for us(woman driver and her own BMW), suddenly he floors it and speeds (Luckily at the time no other cars) and I started shouting like "WTF!!!?" and she answers "Sorry, the low fuel light lit up and I thought we're abput to run out of gasoline"
