    Hi I wanted to share a e-mail that i recieved the other day, and well this is the place for it so enjoy...

    Not that I am condoning the price of gas, but a quick look at reality will
    get your attention.

    *The price of Gas versus Printer Ink*

    All these examples do NOT imply that gasoline is cheap; it just illustrates
    how outrageous some prices are "Compared with Gasoline".....

    Think a gallon of gas is expensive...

    This makes one think, and also puts things in perspective.

    Diet Snapple 16 oz $1.29 ... $10.32 per gallon

    Lipton Ice Tea 16 oz $1.19 ..........$9.52 per gallon

    Gatorade 20 oz $1.59 .... $10.17 per gallon

    Ocean Spray 16 oz $1.25 ......... $10.00 per gallon

    Brake Fluid 12 oz $3.15 ...... $33.60 per gallo n

    Vick's Nyquil 6 oz $8.35 ... $178.13 per gallon

    Pepto Bismol 4 oz $3.85 . $123.20 per gallon

    Whiteout 7 oz $1.39 ... .... . $25.42 per gallon

    Scope 1.5 oz $0.99 .....$84.48 per gallon

    And this is the REAL KICKER...

    Evian water 9 oz $1.49..$21.19 per gallon! $21.19 for WATER and the buyers
    don't even know the source

    (Evian spelled backwards is Naive.)

    Ever wonder why printers are so cheap?????

    So they have you hooked for the ink.

    Someone calculated the cost of the ink at...............

    (you won't believe it....but it is true........)

    $5,200 a gal. (five thousand two hundred dollars)

    So, the next time you're at the pump,be glad your car doesn't run on water,
    Scope, or Whiteout, Pepto Bismol, Nyquil or God forbid, Printer Ink!

    Just a little humor to help ease the pain of your next trip to the pump...

    And - If you don't pass this along to at least one person,
    your muffler will fall off!!!

    *Okay, your muffler won't really fall off...but, you might run out of toilet

    But I don't use 1 1/2 gallons of those things every day 5 days a week....OK, maybe Pepto Bismol, but not the others.

    You mean.....

    Growing old if you are lucky... Growing up is optional.... lol.. Enjoy the ride..
  5. I've always wondered if there's a patent for the ingredients to make printer ink.
    You would think that if you can somehow formulate your own black printer ink and sell it for like 25 or even 50 bucks for a one gallon jug you would be a millionaire in no time.
    I just came back from the grocery store. I mean staple things like bread,potatoes,potatoe chips,milk,rice and eggs...EGGS have nearly DOUBLED in price over 5 years ago.
    We need this all to stop,man.

    It does need to stop, but it won't since energy (petroleum) hauls all of these staple items around. The quicker we all get on our motored bikes & ride, the better off our futures will be.
