The proper response would have been that you would be happy to show them how to save even more energy during the summer, well maybe not.

First thing I noticed was that there was not one, but TWO digital cameras on the bed, both PINK!

And that those are some ugly shoes.

Those who have any experience doing any kind of work out in the field know that marking all the tools pink is a surprisingly effective way to prevent accidental loss. It is especially useful with expensive tools.

They were doing outdoor work (planting trees and stuff, I think), so don't wear good looking shoes for that.

And some of my other friends are also saving energy:

"If you want to be with me, save your energy."

LOL!

BOSS MODE!!! HIT THE BOSS MODE KEY!!!

In all honesty though, I have my doubts about the girls in the first pic, and their age appropriateness, as it were.

Could just be me getting old and thinking that anything which isn't 20 must surely be 15, but hey...

Too young isn't that bad, you just wait a few years a see what kind of person she grows up to be. You may help the process by giving good advice.
Too old...

Apparently, after they've been opened, they stale quickly.

YKYAEMI.......

You get behind a cattle trailer being hauled empty and idly start imagining the air flow going between the bars and wondering about it Cd.....

You're only getting 16% better fuel economy than you should be and are pissed about it!

In a similar problem as above, you're at a 50% above EPA average and you're not happy with it either.

I don't consider myself a hypermiler still, I don't EOC or draft trucks. I usually put the gas down from a light and leave most people for a few seconds (until they catch up and I'm in 4th with a locked TC)

YKYAEM if...
...You even think about whether you're over EPA and how much.
