Did ya MISS my emoticon? It was a quick, humorous banter back to Ken, it wasn't meant to start a flame war or any offense.

I've lived in Michigan most all my life - I have YET to encounter a hurricane, BTW
I saw the emoticons...it's all good...as for people hating on the car manufacturers, it's pretty simple...one of the reasons it's taken so long for car manufacturers to produce large quantities of alt fuel vehicles is because for a long time it hasn't been in their best interest to do so...retooling plants to produce the vehicles is extremely expensive. If it weren't for government intervention, we wouldn't be seeing the rise in the alt fuel vehicles we currently are seeing.
One example I draw from personal experience is back in college, a couple of my fraternity brothers spent several years building a prototype alt fuel engine and patenting it... their intention was simple...they would sell the patent to any auto manufacturer that bid high enough...they knew that their creation would never see the light of day...the manufacturers just wanted to buy the patent to keep it off the market...it sold and they are millionaires.

At least the Hot Coffee lawsuit was partially McDonald's fault. The woman didn't seek a reward, she just wanted the corporation to cover the medical bills for the third degree burns to her genitalia caused when she dropped coffee that was significantly hotter than any other company's, any other store's, and McDonalds' own safety expert's advice.

GLOBAL WARMING MY LARGE OVERWEIGHT BUTT!!!!




Here it is, October 12, and it is SHOWING LIKE A MOFO in SE Michigan...

A friend of mine in UP (that's Upper Penninsula for non-Michiganders...) is busy shoveling about 20" of snow right now...

I'll bet that somehow, this will be used to "confirm" that global warming is real....

...except this is supposed to be a late onset winter, la Nina is active now in the climate cycles....

This sucks. I hate cold weather.

I'm supposed to go to Alaska in a little over a week for early winter testing. It's a white out down here and it's 45 and sunny up there. ...I need to find a job in Arizona...
