    On the surface, that just sounds like rationalization for getting a new car.

    My aunt was told by my uncle to take their truck to the shop because oil was leaking, and said to fix the problem. She came home with a new truck. "Fixed!" was her quote. (note: they aren't rich, but ain't poor, either).
    Never really developed a taste for tequila. Kind of hard to understand how you make a drink out of something that sharp, inhospitable. Now, bourbon is easy to understand.

    True. He had a lot of money so it didnít mean a lot.
    But the overall point was, yes Nj traffic laws can be funny.

    Thatís not rich, thatís obscene.

    Also, thank you for using Beamer instead of Bimmer. I knew you were good people.

    Agreed on the Beamer/Bimmer.

    Mr Armadillo, who has a Beamer. And yes, Bimmer is a thing. Apparently, not only do BEAMER owners not use turn signals, they create their own pronunciation.

    Edit: I guess that can be added to The List.

    My understanding is that the only time you can call it a 'Bimmer' is if it's a motorcycle. Otherwise, it's a Beamer.

    Not much of a car guy. I could never keep the distinction straight.

    I just spell it "Beamer" and the "Bimmer" crowd can eat it.

    A coworker who complains daily they don't pay enough and they don't care about you, but doesn't quit/retire? Get on The List.

    Folks that correct your local word for something when you're away from home (think: soda vs pop vs Coke when ordering a soft drink around the country) are on The List. Sorry DFG.

    Anyone who drives a Beamer/Bimmer/BMW is on The List.

    Anyone who doesn't know "BMW" stands for "Basic Marin* Wheels" is on The List.


    *BMWs in Marin Co CA are like Fords or Kias anywhere else. It's sick.

    For the amount of outdoor enjoyment time they have stolen from me that I will never get back, mosquitos are on the list. They came back late this summer with a vengeance.

    It's more easily understood to have a rotary club than a roundabout club.

    You have a rotary way of making your point.
