9/4     Why do they even bother saving Mt. Wilson Observatory from the
        fire in Los Angeles? I mean, can they even see stars in the
        fog of smog?
        \_ You're an idiot. Not only does the Observatory have historical
           value, but there is still a lot of research that goes on up
           there including the Solar Observatory, the CHARA Array, and
           the Infrared Spatial Interferometer run by some university
           in Berkeley, California.
        \_ besides, the observatories are pretty much above the Smog. What
           contains and concentrates the smog in LA is the very mountains
           that the observatories are on.

1/18    My car needs smog test but I think it may fail. I heard from someone
        that if I fail, I can get a state rebate for repair or something
        like that. Where can I find more info on this?

9/11    I once saw a vehicle buyback program that pays maybe $1000 for vehicles
        that fail the smog test?  Does anyone have a link for this?  I found
        http://www.baaqmd.gov/pln/grants_and_incentives/vehicle_buyback but
        only that's for vehicles that pass the smog test.  Thanks.

        \_ Heh, I get a chuckle out of China being os testy about this stuff.
           Also, how does 2008 Beijing compare to 1984 LA?  LA was pretty nasty
           back in the 70's, wasn't it?

2/14    It took me over 2.5 hours to drive from Santa Monica to Arcadia,
        a distance of 38miles, or 15MPH. What the hell is wrong with
        Los Angeles and why do people actually want to live in LA? God
        I can't wait to get out of this shithole the time comes.
        \_ Maybe for the H07 CH1X?
        \_ Dude, take the 405N to the 118 and it won't take 2.5 hours.

2/15    Dear LA hater, let's start an LA bashing thread. What is it about
        LA you hate?
        \_ I've had the opportunity to live in the Bay Area for 9 years
           and LA 10 years. It's true that traffic jam exist in both places
           but there are degrees of traffic jam. In short, below is my
           experience:

        "Each car costs about $15,000 to convert. The program is being funded
        by the California Energy Commission and the state Air Resources Board."
        God damn idiots.
        \_ Dude it's a test.  Those things cost more.  Moving to all
           electrical power means you have centralized power production.

        I really don't understand this. Instead of increasing mileage
        why don't Americans just plan ahead for once and build a
        sustainable city with mass transit and mixed use buildings,
        instead of big McMansions sprawling wherever land is available?
        \_ Because we don't point to a spot on a map and say, "Let's build
