Quality of Gasoline?

As I understand it, it's not so much which refinery the gas comes from that determines the "quality", but the additives used and the condition of the station's holding tanks. Quality is marginally affected by the amount of water and other contaminants in the gas, which is in turn affected by the filtration. Each pump has filters which need to be changed regularly, and often are not, and the tank as a whole I believe has a filter as well. I don't think this follows brand lines so much as it does owners of particular stations.

Shining Redux

What does a kiss taste like?
One day a teacher had a taste test with her students.
She picked a little boy to do the first test.
She blindfolded him, put a Hershey kiss in his mouth and asked,
"Do you know what it is?" "No , I don't" said the little boy.
Okay, I'II give you a clue.
It's the thing your daddy wants from your mom before he goes to work.
Suddenly, a little girl at the back of the room yelled,
"Spit it out! It's a piece of ass!"

Life is too short not to laugh atleast once - everyday.

american idiot

This is an interesting little rant i found on a site while looking at prices for SD cards:

A 4 Gig Ipod Nano cost $250 but 4GB of New SD memory costs around $250 by itself.
How can that be? Who is ripping who off? It all comes down too how much WE are willing to pay. People have too much money and still want more. This is why everything from Ipods to Houses costs way too much. Spread your wealth.

If you don't want to pay arms and legs for stuff follow our 3 step plan.
1) Stop spending money on foreign products, invest in american made products even if they are from foreign companies because they employ american workers and pay american taxes. This also helps our economy because they also export to other countries (keeping the dollar in check with global inflation)

2) Support antiwar (which spends billions on supporting and revitalizing other countries which helps to raise the national debt where in turn we end up owing other countries huge amounts of monies which we try to pay off by giving them inscentives to import here but not export there.)

3) Reduce your dependency on petroleum products. This is most difficult but you can atleast try. Buy glass or metal products instead of plastic or styrofoam. Check out this page we found:
