playdough is way too salty for my diet now. Although I must confess to checking when Rebecca was into it -- they seem to have a low-salt version now. :huh:

I am not supprised, when you make chips you just don't need the additional salt!

Change of subject, how much are you guys paying for petrol (fuel, gas whatever, see god damn expansion nations) per gallon these days?

The price over her has gone haywire and we are paying close to $10 a gallon, and i was just wondering out of interest how much we are getting screwed. :moose:

In South Jersey we are anywhere from $3.29-$3.39/gal that's the cheap stuff. The Super is 3.79ish

And I'm yelling RAPE! at THESE prices. Here's something cool to look at about gas prices. Typical Gas prices just click a state and then a town.



Thought you people used Euros and paid per Liter over there? :huh:

Over? Did you say "over"? Nothing is over until we decide it is!

Yah, same here, around $3.39 a gallon.

I guess that is around £2.ll a gallon or 80 cents a liter and if my math is right £0.56 a litre.

This is how big your signature should be. Any larger and you are compensating.

Isn't the reason NYC has the best bagels the tap water? I remember seeing or hearing that somewhere. The tap water in Manhattan and Brooklyn have the perfect pH balance, hardness/softness or whatever and places around the world invest tons of money in trying to duplicate it but can't quite do it. Something like that.

Cheapest I saw gas on my morning commute was $2.43, most expensive $2.49 for regular here in MD. Something else I miss about Jersey. Cheapest gas and you don't even have to pump it. Ah, what a life! I had it all, I tells ya.

Ah crap, you're right. $3.43 to $3.49 is the range down here. I think somewhere between my brain and my fingers there's a piece of me saying "No way gas is over $3, he meant $2."

I swear to god, the guy who does the voice for Archer is in every damned cartoon. I still only hear him as Coach McGuirk from Home Movies though.

Now that I think about it I did the same thing when it hit the 2s a few years back...I posted prices in the 1s. This happened on this very forum!

EUROS!!!!!!!! No way, pounds all the way, that currency is doomed IMO.

And we do use liters, but i was adapting to be US friendly (we use a mix of both imperial and metric depending on what maths is easier)


Yah, same here, around $3.39 a gallon.

I guess that is around £2.ll a gallon or 80 cents a liter and if my math is right £0.56 a litre.


Sounds about right to me, so we are paying well over double for our fuel.

Thanks for all the replies.

I'm pretty sure I've done it before too, and probably in this thread. :doh1:

And Archer is amazing. Watched the first season last year, but don't have TV now so I'm missing all the new stuff. Too lazy to see if the episodes are online.

Something like that.

It's possible. I remember seeing on Food Network once this story about a pizza parlor owner in Phoenix who was originally from NYC and had a water system built for his shop that made the water come out like NYC water. The theory, of course, was that the secret to the crust was in the water, just like with the bagels.

Sounds about right to me, so we are paying well over double for our fuel.

And you have been for many, many years. The trade-off being, though, that mass transit is a lot better over there and you don't need cars as much. We here in the States are too damn addicted to our cars, but on the flip side, mass transit sucks in most places.

On the way back to Wake from spring break (which I spent at home), the friend that I drove with brought two dozen bagels from home because "the bagels everywhere else suck ass." :lol: Greatest luggage ever.

Checking weather, what more reliable NOAA or AccuWeather.

NOAA's snow maps always seem a bit overboard.

They're both way better than weather.com, which is pretty much the worst. I prefer weather.gov (NOAA) over accuweather just because they offer more info, but they're both usually fairly reliable IMO.

How's that been working for you?

Weatherbug is spyware.

What does it spy on exactly?
