OT: Today is a special day!! Today smog checks in the bay area starts @ $130 a pop!!!

I must say, I'm pretty excited to fail some of the earth biscuit, tree huggin', protestors who drive 84 corollas and 87 volvos. The averages are saying that with the new smog will fail 50% of vehicles older that 1990. 70% of 1980's and most definately 1970's cars.

Its time to show who the real polluters are. I've always argued that SUV's do not pullute as much as an olded Honda Civic. They just drink more gas.
I even checked the emission results on my ML500 and it came out with 0's accross the board. Comparatively, the average 1990-2000 car produces more polutants.

PLEASE compile some statistics for us to ship off to Arianna Huffingpaint. I would love to show those greenies the tru picture. SUVs are safer vehicles that do not pollute and many get gas mileage comparable to sedans.

*that's* who Ariana is!

I couldn't remember who she was. Now I remember: http://www.americandaily.com/item/2328

She represents greenie scum. I'd love to see Ahhnold stick her head into a toilet, too. Guess that makes me a male chauvenist pig too, eh? She's as irritating on TV as I'd have guessed from the warped commercials...maybe that's why people want to see her head jammed in a toilet :-)
