The Big DumpTruck

Throwing Little Thought Pebbles at Your Windshield Since 1996

Car Stuff

My son pointed out a “funny car” tonight…I know you think I’m going to say a Mini but it was an SUV limo. Now THAT is a car.

Is it possible to get negative miles to the gallon?

p.s. It probably wasn’t funny at the time, but my neighbor told me that it was so hot the other day that it set off the heat detectors at the new gas station at BJ’s – which proceeded to dump baking soda out of the fire-prevention system. She said the entire parking lot and all the patrons were covered with baking soda – it looked like winter. They took a couple of the older patrons across the street to the hospital just to make sure they hadn’t breathed any of it in. But apparently it’s pure baking soda, so for average, healthy people it wouldn’t be an issue. How cool would it be to be standing there one minute, minding your own business, and the next completely covered with baking soda?

So I asked her if they had to go get little boxes of Arm & Hammer to refill the system, when I remembered it was BJ’s so they probably went and got the BIG boxes…
