Discuss

When parking my car this morning--and already frustrated because the parking people had stopped me to check my permit and the occurrence of both a funeral and Holy Week on campus had meant that there was very little parking available--I parked behind a H2 with Arizona plates, but not normal plates, "Save our environment" plates.

I saw the same vehicle today.

I took out my office key and carved 'respect private property' into the passenger-side-door.

Equally appropriate, no?

He or she attends USD? Enough said.

To not KT, I do agree.
To Anonymous, I think enough is said by the vehicle being driven as well as the fact that it was purchased in Sacramento and had vanity plates indicating that the person was from Sacramento but the plates were from Arizona, probably—though not certainly—indicating that the person was unwilling to pay for California roads but was happy to use them. However, it's a faulty assumption in other cases to assume that you can tell too much about someone just based on what college or university they attend or attended.

One can often, though not infallibly, tell a good deal more by what a person chooses to major in and why.

When are they going to start making hybrid H2's?

Well, Hummer is pretty much done. It was GM and no one wants to buy it. The military part of it is entirely separate and will continue. However, I heard today that part of the Hummer factories or company was going to be cooperating with Segway (I'm too lazy to walk) to make a new motorized chair with plastic bubble (I'm too lazy to stand) that would be either hybrid or green in some way.
