Rising Gas Prices and lowering blood pressure A little weekend fun

    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...

    Most of those are illegible to me.

    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.

    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...

    There :smile:

    I will post comments in a second :smile:


    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.

    Without the spaces.

    I like the one with sheep. I've considered it, believe me I've considered it. Free fertilizer too. :biggrin:

    :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.

    mattmns Thanks!!! :!!) I have to drive to meet with clients throughout the day, so I can't take a bus or car pool... :frown:

    Another question - does anyone know how to "refresh" the posts so as to update who's just posted?

    I'm just glad I drive a really small car, 18 dollars filled my tank, and it will last me 10 to 14 days.

    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. :biggrin:

    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!

    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.

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