my scooter got 125-150mpg before I tore it apart. It used way less natural resources to construct than a car also. Scooters are good 4 the world. Or at least better than a tree hugging prius

do you get used to Miata drivers claiming you're perpetuating stereotypes?

Hmm, debatable.

Honda Rebel rated at about 60 mpg US, 16.1hp parallel-twin, 480lbs fueled and with me on it. 29.8 lbs/hp

Scion iQ rated at 37mpg, 94hp inline-4, 2300lbs fueled and with me in it. 24.4 lbs/hp

One to two days notice is nice. Think of it as 2-day shipping included for free.

Apparently going to be towed by a toyota tundra for the last few hundred feet or so.

The robotically controlled mover is awesome looking though.

From the clips I've seen so far, Paul Ryan got pwned. His smug smile was bothersome, and he said stuff that made me think of a removed paper pushing politician instead of a someone in charge of running a country.

I think tonight, spurred by that picture of paul ryan, is the first time I actually looked into political stuff.

I consider myself a conservative in that I like small government, low taxes, limited regulation, and free enterprise. But seriously, the only thing that republican or conservative seems to mean these days is a racist, christian extremist. Just looking at Romney's site, his plans just seem like cheap, easy, shortcuts. The only thing I liked was the protection of workers and businesses from unions.

Looking at Obama's site, it looks like his goals are much more long term and just plain better. Strangely enough, Obama's plan makes me think of post war Germany. Stopping war, and investing in manufacturing, education, and technology. The one thing that does sound a bit weak is dealing with the debt. Tax breaks for the poor, and small hikes for the rich. Just sounds like it's going to equal out to me, and if expenses to income only equals out, then debt either stays the same or increases.

I started to watch, but then couldn't handle Biden's chuckling and Ryan's smirking, so I turned the sh it off.
