that's a good 15 cents less than the cheapest brand name that I can find here...

on another note, isn't it peculiar that the price will rise when things like that happen, but won't drop accordingly when it's fixed?!

There is a smart car on youtube with a Hyabussa engine where the passenger seat should be. It is crazy fast. It took on a Lambo in the quarter mile and smoked him. Mid engine and rear wheel drive, sounds like a super car for the city dweller.

The spelling in this thread (and the topic title, wow) is what's horrible (note the two Rs). Please show a little more respect for your fellow members and use a spell checker. I fixed some of the more egregious ones.

Mosc-o-nary (brought to you by dictionary.com)
Egregious -adjective. Means extraordinarily bad in some way. glaring; flagrant: an egregious mistake; an egregious liar.

Oh, and please ignore my glaringly hypocritical nature.

EDIT: I fixed 24 posts in this thread. Wow.

!Laugh!^^^ The, is the beginning of a sentence, it needs to be capitalized.
Sorry, I didn't realize how much of a dumb ass I am.
The spell check never worked for me because I never downloaded it. So I suppose i will download it today.

The atlantic is big, it starts with a big letter. tx is even bigger so it gets 2 capitals.
I think its funny that you think the Atlantic Ocean is bigger than Texas.

I was just trying to be funny, sheesh. Everything is bigger in Texas you know.

Also, you failed to ignore the glaringly hypocritical nature of the post. Just figured I'd point that out.

I'm sorry, but I have to say anybody that is complaining about gas prices needs to drive less, get a new car or a better job. As long as the value of the dollar continues to go down gas will continue to rise. Americans as a whole will not drive less and oil companies know this. I just invested the majority of my 401K into to oil and energy this year. I already made just as much money this year in the first 4.5 months then all of last year. Keep driving guys, you're making me money! Every time I fill up I see $$ signs.

Still love my 4 rings, but now all I see is stars.

Me too, I thought that was pretty funny... Looks like I'm going to have to watch out and spell correctly from now on I can honestly say though, that i would probably not put that much work into editing so many little mistakes! The little " ' " that so many people forget to put on their s', man I'd get really irritated too...

(I hope i spelled irritated right, I don't know how to use the spell checker, i don't think it works on this computer! )
