When removing staples from some recycled pine, you use a set of pliers and attempt to recover every staple, so that you can use them again at a future date.

If you mess up a single staple, you get angry with yourself and feel wasteful.

YMBAE if you know where every flag is on your way to and from work--because you use them to tell which way the wind is blowing (not that there's anything you can do about it).

YMBAE if you think you yourself, "We just passed the winter solstice, pretty soon I won't have to have my headlights on as much!"

YKYAEM if you check the brake disk temperature at the end of the trip. If the disks are even warm, you know the caliper pins are sticking. It's time to pull, clean, and lube them again.

I EOC in the dark, but HIDs draw only 35 watts each.

You know your an EM when:
Driving at night in the county side you can still tell the wind direction and speed.

You enjoy driving in a light snow storm as it gives you a chance to see the wind, your cars aerodynamics as well as other cars.

YKYAEM when you love driving on empty roads in the middle of the night because you can go extra slow and nobody cares.
Except for the few cars which are going extra fast.

YKYAEM if you tell the Wife that you're driving at no more than 40 km/h this evening because of the fog. To which she replies: "But you always drive that slow on this route". Duh!

New Year's night had that feel to it - hardly anyone out on the wet road, and me heading straight into the wind. Bummer

When I was driving back from the New Years party there were people on the streets than cars That was another reason for going too fast.

YKYAEM

you get priority in a 4 way stop because all the other cars wave you through to see your aero modded car.
