Small vs Big
Atrios's post on Oil prices brought up lots of interesting discussion on conservation ideas. My favorite was this link to the tiny kite-buggy. Very energy efficient, but probably best suited to the local salt-flats in your neighboorhood.
However the supreme comment was this snippet courtesy of spacebaby from another mailing-list:

There you were with your red, pouty lips. Gorgeous. Your friend with her long flowing blonde hair. Blasting your thumping system at noon on a Monday. You knew we were all looking at you two in your white, flawless Hummer. You were talking on your phone, laughing as you almost knocked over the messenger as you flew around the corner from Montgomery onto Sacramento. You showed him.
As you both looked around at us peons running around on this busy Monday, throwing your snide I-think-being-head-cheerleader-five-years-ago-still-makes-me-cool looks around, we all looked to you for some guidance as to how we too could actually be *such c---s* without speaking.
You almost killed the 90 year old Asian man as you pulled into the parking garage on Sacramento. We were all shocked at your actions, hoping that someday, a couple of bitches like yourselves would get what was coming.
I guess you were going a little too fast to see the "Maximum Height 7'" sign. Maybe you should have rethought those extra large tires. But, I will say that nothing, and I mean NOTHING in this world sounds as good as the roof of a Hummer being crushed by a huge, concrete overhang.
Please, let me just say "Bravo".
