To add on to Swamp Rat's car discussion, what about us that CAN'T drive?
One of the things that is so fucked up by our society today is that in most places you pretty much HAVE to have a car to be independent. For those of us that for what ever reason can't drive, is is essentially a violation on our freedom of movement. Our recreational and employment opportunities are restricted because or society is so centered on cars. I have had potential employers reject my job application simply because I don't have a car. Here in Fargo there is no bus service on Sunday, so I can't go anywhere on Sundays. The only way for me to get to another city without getting a ride from a relative or friend is by Greyhound bus, and they are nasty things to ride.

Just when I thought they could NOT get any more stupid!
