The way I'm deranged is different as I saw Priuses/Priii...

Seriously after the tens of thousand dead & missing people I'm seeing the nuclear problems (set today between 5 (Three Miles Island) & 7 (Chernobyl) out of 7).

When you pick a parking spot not based on convenience, but on amount of potential energy.

Absolutely. I park in the highest spot at work, which is also the farthest. It's over 100 yards away and nearly as high as the fourth floor where I work.

Actually, I use the third spot. I pull face-in to the top spot and then engine-off roll back and swing around and back in to the third spot. Face out downhill.

YKYAEMW someone mentions "boat" and "tail" in the same sentance and you think of Weather Spotter's Matrix or basjoos' aerocivic.

...if when going barely the speed limit you start singing to the tailgater in an Elmer Fudd voice;
Get a widdle cwoser
Fill in me wake.
Get a widdle cwoser

Do it NASCAR style now
Fill in me wake...
