So... that means you're getting almost 2 miles per gallon now?

What if Waffle is in on it? Didn't think about that one, did you?

Going downhill with the wind behind my back.

BTW: I wonder what kind of gas mileage Al Gore gets in his private
jet?

There was a big article today on Gore's $20,000+ yearly electrical bill.

Congratulations on making medical history!

I can only imagine what sort of "testing" or "analysis" he performed on you.

Got to love them probes.

Yep, those actors are freaking hilarious. Did you see DiCaprio crawl out of Gore's a** and then crawl right back in after he kissed it for several minutes in front of a global audience. Don't worry, Al pointed out that the show had gone "green" this year.

Yep the whole thing is a joke. I really wish Hollywood would stick to acting. Not politics. It makes me not want to rent movies or even go to then. I guess I liked it better when I was 10 years old and thought that William Shatner really lived on the Enterprise. Now that I am 43 I can see that actors are really baffoons.

Wait a minute there. What are you trying to say here? Are you saying Shatner and Nimoy didn't really live on the Enterprise. You don't mean to tell me all that stuff wasn't real, like the green babes and the Vulcan kung fu death grip. We've all been living a lie!

Well, ummm....yeah. Oh boy I feel bad now. I seen Shatner on a commercial for Priceline.com, unless he came back from space. I don't know. Maybe we should call him. He's at Priceline.com

Oh, I forgot to ask, how big is your carbon footprint?

That was scary! For a while there I thought you were saying Star Trek wasn't real. I've seen all the Star Trek people walking around here on planet Earth, usually around conference rooms in small hotels - I think they secretly own Hotel chains.

My carbon footprint is a 10 1/2. Or is it 10 1/2 x 2, which would make it 21? Either way, I don't wear carbon much, I prefer rubber or leather.

I'm sorry Cap, where can I get myself a solar powered car? Also, I'm thinking of building my own mini nuclear reactor. I wonder how my pemitting process will go.

Wow, nuclear. Maybe Iran can help ya out! Tell them you'll trade them an old 747 for some uranium! The only thing is, you won't be telling them it's a model of a 747. Iran Air of course.

Re: How are gas prices where you live?

Looks like gas prices have finally jumped even higher down here. Was at the BP across from my school, and it appears that gas is now at $2.45. They better spend that to install those little round rubber thingys on the Nozzel. Those have been disappearing lately from stations all over here, and quite frankly, having about 1-2 dollars worth of gas literally fly out of the tank when it tops off is no fun.

Hey, model plane manufactures, how about some Braniff PZL 230Fs.

People steal those little rubber thingys. That's a Florida thing.
