The moped is currently my ride- attached are the 14 2x4's that now make up my workbench at home. Good times...

The moped is something of an allegory though. In whatever given space that one has, one fills it up. You don't have to- in fact when I moved from the boat everything I owned fit into the corner of one of the rooms of the apartment. Now the apartment is full. I could get rid of the recent acquisitions, but the apartment feels wrong without them. I move everything I need to move on the moped but when I use my girlfriends car, I fill that up too. Having extra doesn't necessarily mean flexibility- more often it breeds laziness.

Having cheap gas doesn't free up ones finances to get a better made, more fuel efficient car- it makes people not think about efficiency at all.
