I have heard and said more inanities, since you took me in tow, than in all the rest of my life.

Extremely Lame Post


So how much does gas cost where you live? I scored Sunday and found 93 octane for LESS THAN THREE BUCKS!! Yeah, baby - $2.99! Only cost me 45 dollars to fill the Z. That's what I'm talkin' about.

What I don't get is when the price of gas goes up dramatically, why doesn't the price of other petroleum products go up as well? I fully expected to pay something like 12 bucks for a plastic shower curtain liner this weekend, but was shocked to see they were still a bargain at $1.99.


Take a vinegar bottle. A one gallon vinegar bottle:

And a PREMIUM (unleaded) vinyl shower curtain liner:

Now measure the VOLUME of the liner by stuffing it into the bottle:

Hmm, easier said than done...


Box Cutter to the rescue!

I am so smart! S-M-R-T, I mean S-M-A-R-T!

Stuff the liner in:

VOILA! The volume of a shower curtain liner is...


So we have, a one-gallon PREMIUM unleaded shower curtain liner at $1.99 versus one gallon of PREMIUM unleaded gasoline at $2.99...

The choice is obvious:

Hmm... what's next?

Think that'll void the warranty?

I agree the choice is obvious. You are such a scientist. Good pictures.
