YKYAEMI: You make the mistake of reading a story on yahoo news that has driving tips from a pro racecar driver. When the first one says to brake with your left food to save half a second, and you are so annoyed by it, you have to comment about how waiting to slow down like that is only wasting fuel.

... When you look at your snowshoe, and can't help but think, "hey, that looks pretty close to 'the template'".

(And you know most people reading this thread know what that means.)

Do you know it's how damn hard to explain it to anyone??? Perhaps you do. They're so full of preconceptions.

You know you're an ecomodder when.....you are running late for work and your subconscious "hypermiling" keeps you running late for work.
