    Isn't what we pay still much cheaper than the price of "petrol" in Europe? How do we compare, dear Euro-friends?
    Can get it for around $2.10 here in the eastern portion of Chicagoland. Just don't go into Cook County; you're looking at $2.35 at least there.

    Okay .. i do not mean to make any one gasp in disbelief


    But gas is down to 1.92 per gallon here...

    It is strange .. how it differs across the country..
    In Seattle ... they are paying 2.45 per gallon....

    I have heard that in Europe .. they are paying up to 5.00 pre litter .. YIKES....

    Again.. i guess I won't complain about being in the mid west .. no matter how much I am missing the ocean ...

    Gas: paid $2.22/gal yesterday in Buffalo. That's on the low side.

    LOL

    Costs me $20 to fill the Honda - but it last me two weeks.

    I'm pissed about the price of beer. If you go to a bar - even domestic beer is $2.75 for 12 ounces. A gallon of bottled beer - when purchased at my local dive is over $25 a gallon. Thank goodness my car doesn't run on beer.

    And what about the cost of a gallon of good tequila?!?

    One shot at a time . . . .

    At the bar I stop at on the ever so infrequent times I need a good belt "good" tequila goes for about $2.50 a shot. Figuring a shot to be 2 or 3 ounces, depends on where you go; I love places where the shot is 3 ounces but those places are few and far between so let's go with 2 ounces. A gallon being 128 ounces 64 shots could be had... at a cost of a mere $160 and then you have to figure in tip too. Being the generous sort I usually go with the whatever change I have method rather than the 10, 15 or 20% of the bill. But for this exercise I will figure to be real generous and go with the 20% putting the total for the gallon at $192....now there is something to complain about....

    And don't even get me started on the cost of a good gin and tonic by the gallon.....

    Eff tha po'leece!!!

    Of all the shizznit to go down this weekend. . .

    Now we got punk azz KKKops (yep, I spelled it like that for a reason!) beatin' down teenagers!!! My nephew was with his friend Kent and a few others when two of them got to arguing, but ended it without too much trouble. How come the bytch-azz po'leece gotta come up crackin' folks in da mouf (another intentional misspelling) with KKKnightsticks? I'll tell ya why- they ain't got shit else to do but use excessive force on folks they think are skerred of dey azzes!!! My nephew called me in shock saying, "all Kent said to them was "why are you doing this?" and the punk azz KKKop cracked him with that stick!" I am glad to hear that Kent defended himself against them- I was told that he bashed both of them!

    You go, Kent! Beat dat azz!! They give peacemakers a bad name! I say we take 'em all down wit' da quickness!

    I got my razor and vaseline ready! They don't want none!

    Wow! That's it! I just need a 6-decker moped...start with the littlest kids on top and stack them right on down according to size....actually, kids pack a lot of energy, you know...there might be some way of tapping into that...
