actually in engineering any "metal lid/flap over an engine" is called a bonnet.

only americans call it a 'hood' for cars..

plus both hoods and bonnets go on ya head, lol


car insurance is fucked up over here...

compare to ka rizzle...

when i last renewed i was 27, i hadnt been driving 2 years so was still in my 2 year probation, but i did have 2 years no claims.

i have no points for speeding,  i have a 'performance' group 16 insurance car 2.0 litre / 150 bhp.

road tax is £165 a year (big engine..), insurance for me fully comp is about £720..
i said i do average mileage which they count as up to 10/12k a year which i think is about right.


cwalker amde a good point about our commuting, that and the fact that it is expensive to run a car are reasons why i didnt learn to drive till 25..

thing is.. weather isnt so good here. found that when i broke my car up the other week (oops... lol) that its lethal now compared to when i used to cycle, even using the cycle lanes... (which dont have good enough routes..)

btw dunno why trauma is getting all upset.. we're sayin our prices should come down to match yours... thats fair right? ;)

Bostons got a big subway system mayne..Where'd ya git ya info from?

Prices are weird why they fluctuate..There is no reason why gas prices should be so much.

You gotta be rich to have a nice house in the tri-state, boston area. There are alot of lower class people around here simply because the price of living is nuts up here. You can go to Florida and buy a brand new mansion for 300,000$...Up here you can buy a 30 year old small ass house for 300,000$...Here is a perfect example on how expensive it is in the east. You could NEVER get a house up here for 100,000$...A double wide Trailor costs 175,000$ up here when in florida it costs 40,000..Its fucked.

its true how dependent we are. when they had that strike don rizzle mentioned before it totally fucked up stuff here for a while.

man.. terrorists just need to bomb the fuel depots.. theres only a few.. it'd fuck a country up bad for a bit.

Yup.  I think the only reason they did the world trade center was because it was more of a symbol and a there was more of a dramatic visual effect.  They should go after things like fuel companies and things next if they want to get something accomplished.

YES, that's very fair.  

However, this motherfucker said

"with such a valuable resource maybe a price rise in america would be good"


Fuck him.  Did you miss that part of the post, O?

trauma your a bitch why get personal i was only expressing an opinion, the point i have been trying to get across is that you have been complaining about price rises, but you should think yourself lucky as its much worse over here. and the point about a price rise over in america being a good thing is that it may encourage you to drive more economical cars, prelonging the life of a valuable resource.

iraq would just get annexed by iran


That would be a great solution.  If Iran and the majority of Iraqi's are pleased with it, then why shouldn't they do it?

Americans will never stop driving our cool sports cars and SUV's. Driving cool cars is as American as apple pie. We make fun of those gay little cars that Europeans drive. We wouldn't be caught dead in them.

man i dont give a shit what other people pay...the fact is i used to be able to fill my tank on 10 bucks...now it takes nearly 20...thats a big ass increase...you can bitch all you want that you pay 3 times more but you're used to it...we're not...why should i pay twice as much for something i never had to do that for in the first place...

and for the record gas prices are rising but at certain times they lower too...i saw gas prices go from around 1.90 to 1.30 to about 1.99 a gallon in a matter of months
