Of course Steve "Reality Distortion Field" Jobs said "the 60s really happened in the early 70s..."

Did it take that long to regain consciousness [of the standard sort]...?

The biggest selling style of music sold in the 1960s was easy listening.

So maybe.

I just had an odd realization today.

I stop at my local gas station on a fairly regular basis. They have good coffee. And here's a strange one... really good egg rolls! Always good for a bite on the go.

I also stop there for air for my tires. (The other stations CHARGE you for it!)

So, what I realized today is that I very seldom actually GET GAS when I'm at the gas station.

You might be an Ecomodder if you only ever get gasoline about 20% of the time that you are even AT the gas station!

(And yes, that' in the gas vehicle, not the electric one!)

YKYAEM, when this video, intended to be a prank, reminds you of some fellow EM'ers.

A/C? He doesn't need that. Stereo? he doesn't need that, either.

The funny thing is, we actually don't need most of that stuff.

Probably the cars don't have LRR tyres

YKYAEM when you look at this car and immediately think " Nice mirror mod - I wonder if he is using cameras ?"
