    Lately I've just taken to mixing up salted peanuts and chocolate chips in a container. Much the same except cheaper. And better chocolate.

    That might be the case, except that if that is the design, then the design is a fail. I have no problem with protests, with political action, when it actually gets its point across, but it doesn't...

    I passed a Google car on my commute a couple of weeks ago--suppose I'll have to check!

    Are you kidding? The swipe fees generated by that much usage would be quite a lot. part of the cost of the rewards programs is pushed back by the issuer on to the merchant (marchants pay a higher...

    The problem of excess consumption shows up as our current account deficits. If we had no exports or imports, we would just have consumption=production. At one time, the US was a net exporter, but in...

    The ones who aren't chemically impaired are probably chatting on a cellphone.

    Which is why most dealers of new cars will give you a better price for cash. Your real interest includes the premium you pay to buy with finance. Remember that a company like GM is not a car company,...

    Right, which is why all of the folks who followed that advice during the housing bubble are all now wealthy and sitting on debt-free valuable real estate. Or, you know, not.

    This is the route I take--I can get to 99 by going over the Alford St. bridge by the power station. From 99 sometimes I'll cross over to 107, which is easier now that the construction is finished....

    I guess the idea is that this alerts the driver that there is actually a bike there in the lane. Yes, drivers should look anyway, but they often seem pretty surprised to see that the bike lane might...

    Where I live, many of these things are within walking distance. So neither the bike or the car are really a factor (though I do some of my grocery shopping by bike).

    If I weren't using the bike...

    Same here. If I am tempted by anything on the route, it would be pastry. Usually I can resist, but once in a while I get to work and find that one of my coworkers has brought a box of donuts from one...

    In 2008, when gas here first hit $4 and the recession hit hard, the number of car miles driven dropped, and the national "fleet"--the number of registered cars on the road--actually dropped,...

    The article doesn't say if he rode to work, only that he was riding while working. However, since he rode to the hospital rather than waiting for an ambulance, we can infer that he chooses a...

    I do, but my ride is only 3 miles each way and I work in a fairly casual office, so I can choose my clothes according to my needs. Except that I have bike shoes since I have clipless pedals, I keep...

    Still commuting to work every day. Fortunately, I had the week off after xmas. After the last storm, the rides have been slushy and bad, the bike lanes are not cleared and cars are parked in them....

    Since my Magicshine had started to fall apart even before the battery notice, I'd already replaced it with a Planet Bike Alias HID light, mainly because I got one used for a relatively low price. In...

    The one I got did not appear to be held together by much of anything at all. Yes, other manufacturers have problems, but there's no getting around that the MS light is cheaply made, with little or no...

    It is possible to buy them legally from suppliers, but if they are marked with the name of a dairy, then they may very likely be stolen. As you say, the dairies normally reuse them and do not sell...
