7/15    help, if i see anyone driving a Land Rover or Humvee in a non
        combat situation I automatically think they are an asshole.
        \_ what's wrong with that?
        \_ Look at the way those cars were advertised a few years ago.
           They are marketed as "fuck you" cars.  No duh people who own
           They are marketed as "f*** you" cars.  No duh people who own
           them are assholes.
        \_ Feel the same way about Jeeps?
           \_ My 1996 Jeep Cherokee (169.2in) is shorter than a Honda Civic.
              \_ So what?  When people complain about SUVs and the people who
                 buy them, the car's length is generally not what they're
                 objecting to.  What on earth are you trying to say?
                 \_ I'm just trying to say not all SUVs are equally bad-ass,
                    in terms of the space that it takes up and gas mileage.
                    Mine has better gas mileage than some full-size sedans.
                    Mine has better gas mileage than some luxury sedans.
                    Mine has better gas mileage than some luxury sedans. -- PP
                    \_ Doesn't change that Jeep was designed for combat.
                       \_ Also designed without shock-absorbers or comfortable
                          seating. Hardcore means no more kidney stones.
        \_ I wished that Cal Tech student burned down more Hummers.
           I totally support his cause.
           \- ARCHIMEDES DEATH RAY vs HUMMER!
        \_ if you really want to punish those assholes, lobby congress don't
           do anything about the high gas prices.  Let these road bullies
           PAY for their choices.   Right now, we would rather invade another
           country than willing to let gas price rise.

7/20    Do people not know that the only place where there is no speed
        limit is on a freeway onramp?  Which means that it is the entrant
        driver's job to speed up and get in past the existing traffic?
        \_ The ones who can't accelerate are in SUVs
           \_ True.  My 2nd-gen Prius (not the 2010) accelerates on the
              on-ramps fine.  -- !OP

8/7     Russians naively buy American SUVs for their off-road capabilities and
        get into trouble. Hilarious!
        http://englishrussia.com/?p=2001
        \_ This is funny!  Those SUV drives don't know off-roading.  1. Lock
           the differentials, or apply the gas and the brake at the same time.
           2. Put a piece of wood under each wheel.

        "The average cost of owning and driving a car 15,000 miles a year is
        $7,830 according to AAA. SUVs are even more costly, at $9,990 per
        year."
