you are quite wrong.

"LOS ANGELES, California (Reuters) -- An aspiring physicist was sentenced Monday to more than eight years in prison and ordered to pay $3.5 million for his role in a spree of arson and vandalism that targeted gas-guzzling Hummers and other sports utility vehicles."

Kudos to the man.

With 300+ posts I'm amused you haven't really gotten the gist of this community.. to start a topic with that title, stereotype everyone under their profession, and then draw a conclusion all in one sentence, without any punctuation marks, is pretty indicative of your prejudice towards those superior to your intellectual capability

Would you then please, for Chissakes, use smilies? I suspected a less-than-serious approach to that based upon a couple of your previous posts, but it's far from a 'given'. :smile:

:biggrin: I like being nonchalant when joking on the forums. Using smiles just gives it away. The problem with posting on the internet is that you can't tell what tone of voice I am trying say things in. If I said this to you in real life and showed you the article, then you would obviously know I wasn't being serious.

The reference wasn't to that quote; it was to the lack of punctuation in the title. :-p

You guys are all evil lol

And wasnt the irony to this case the fact that by burning hte vehicles, he released more pollutants into the air then the vehicles would have ever produced in all their lifetimes?
