# Rising Gas Prices and lowering blood pressure A little weekend fun

1. Apr 9, 2005

Yesterday I filled my tank and it cost $40. I walked back into the office grumpy about this only to find one of my co-workers had emailed these to me: So it helped lower my blood pressure, at least until the next time I go to the pump... 2. Apr 9, 2005 ### BicycleTree Most of those are illegible to me. 3. Apr 9, 2005 ### SOS2008 Dang -- I thought you could click on these to make larger... Hmm...I need to sharpen my skills further... 4. Apr 9, 2005 ### Danger Oh well, the 3 or 4 that I could read are pretty good. And I still don't know how to post a picture at all. 5. Apr 9, 2005 ### SOS2008 Maybe we should make a thread so other PF members can teach things like this, and I'd like to learn how to alter images too... Of course, in the wrong hands... 6. Apr 9, 2005 ### mattmns There I will post comments in a second Pretty funny, but also sadly true. The thing you do not hear people talking about, yet!, is using public transportation or car pooling: This is the only realistic solution! edit... also this is what you are supposed to do. Note: I just took out the ".th" on your images to make the images the regular size. This is the usual way. [ url = url to full size image ] [ img ] url of thumbnail [ /img ] [ /url ] Without the spaces. Last edited: Apr 9, 2005 7. Apr 9, 2005 ### Moonbear Staff Emeritus I like the one with sheep. I've considered it, believe me I've considered it. Free fertilizer too. :rofl: mattmns, I know if I worked more regular hours, I'd be carpooling! It's more difficult for those of us who don't have fixed hours. 8. Apr 9, 2005 ### SOS2008 mattmns Thanks!!! :!!) I have to drive to meet with clients throughout the day, so I can't take a bus or car pool... Another question - does anyone know how to "refresh" the posts so as to update who's just posted?

Apr 9, 2005 ### Danger Cry me a river, girl. The last time I filled my car was over a year ago and it cost$85. Canuk money, I admit, but still...

It's just as well that you decided on the new mower. You'd never get Brewnog and Artman out of your yard, and they'd probably be fighting over the same sheep.

Yeh, I'm working on this. I still need to load things into my vehicle (for trade show booths, etc.), and like to go camping, etc., but I'm starting to look at vehicles along the line of the Ford Escape. Hey--Any PF suggestions are welcome!

So what became of the wheelchair?

I was thinking how nice public transportation is, not just because of gas, but making a car payment, then insurance, then license plate tabs, etc.--I'd rather pay the real cost at the pump. And I agree that Americans not only moved back toward larger vehicles after the last price hike/shortages, but went to mammoth vehicles--it's ridiculous.

It's not street legal. I was pulled over and had to pay a ticket! :surprised

I think that, in fact, a mammoth would be quite practical. Bigger cargo capacity than an elephant, and bigger feet for traction. Just remember to plug it in during the ice age.

So many good reasons to use a bike.

I thought that's what you packed those melons around with you for.

Scion
My son just bought one of these, he also needs good cargo room. I was impressed, good handling...great on gas.
