    Oh, it'll happen, Steve. The vast majority of people are clueless drivers.

    I've been wondering when that was gonna happen. I go to CC for all my car stereo stuff and have always wondered why their gas meter is fully exposed. I've also wondered how long it will be before someone loses their brakes coming up to the bay, plows through a nothing fence, and drives directly into a major power substation.

    Maybe I should go dive on a 52" plasma TV. I would hate for one of those to be a casualty of war. Just trying to do my part.

    Had to back up to load up that big old lcd television. Had WRAL in High Defintion on thier mind rather than the road.

    Aren't gas meters on these large buildings usually protected by heavy concrete and steel poles so that idiot drivers only damage their minivans instead of the meter?

    Sounds like a fierce "battle". Any artillery or airstrikes?
