So few years ago I traded my car. The new one was very luxury inside and had a digital time clock and a gauge showing outside temperature. And that would be it besides standard equipment like steering wheel or pedals. Of course no mpg info. So I decided I'll do it manually. And so I did. But now the car has some miles on it ... and I'm still doing it and can't stop. I think I'm going mad.
I almost started the same thing with the bike ...

I took me 15 min to prepare the spreadsheet and after that it takes 30 sek to input mileage, gallons, date and rate. The rest calculates by itself.

But that doesn't explain why I'm still doing it

Government's view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it.

Line 168

go time traveler style and go back in time, fuck his grandma, then shoot forward in time and then fuck his mom. Then return back to present state and call him a the product of two incest whores and hes your son and show video of you plowing the both members of his family. .
