    I'll admit the average Subaru driver is on the slow side. But then, when you drive above average speed, everyone is on the slow side. I have more issues with Prius drivers than Subaru drivers these days. I think all the slow mid 90s Outback owners are trading in for a Prius. All I know is that with over 300 hp in my Forester, it's a rare occurance to have someone on my tail! :cool:

    I don't want to offend another group of specific vehicle owners so I won't go off on a Prius rant. Evidently, the challenge for a Prius owner must be to drive slow enough that the gas engine never comes on -- which must be somewhere around 22 miles per hour.

    ...and to think at one time a VW Bug was considered slow...

    (I come from a long line of speeders... except for my Mom... she was issued just one speeding ticket in her life and when she was cited, you'd think she was going to die ... according to her, the OSP officer smelled like he'd been drinking so obviously she was given a ticket in error -- and considering the speeds she drove, I'm inclined to believe her)

    Aw man, I drive a Prius. When I'm just wading and don't have to traverse rough roads, I drive it to fish. I own guns. I try to avoid speeding tickets. Can I be in the misfits club?

    So I'd probably get 17 mpg in a Prius because I'd have to be going all out everywhere I went in order to achieve a reasonable speed.

    What's use of horse power if you're not going to use it... ALL of it.

    Yes! This ^^^

    Separately, I bought a Subaru a year ago precisely to raise the average speed of the brand. If you listen closely when I pass, you can hear me yelling, "Get the f--k out of my way, f--king hippies!" There are way too many hippies in Seattle, in Subarus or otherwise.

    Wait, isn't this about politics? What's this "budget" thing you speak of?

    Well, it's this complex system of mathematics (really high level stuff), where you set aside monies for certain expenditures.

    Now, if you want to get into the really, really high tech math (I mean like alien stuff), you operate your budget on a balanced system. I know, I know... hang in there. Most crazy, smart people, I mean like psychopath smart, call this a ' balanced budget '.

    See what they did?! They put the two words together (but switched them around). I know, I know, it's crazy stuff man. But the meaning of it will just blow your mind. The idea, is to not spend more than you take in. WHAT!? :eek:

    Breathe man, just breathe... it's a lot to take in all at once. :p:D

    If he'd been in a Prius I would have tried to out-run him.
