    I've always assumed that the Aussies were probably worse than us. They have no emissions inspections; everyone lives 1000 miles from the next city and straight roads in between; they have Australian V8 Super Car (which is like NASCAR for people who abhor soap operas but delight in turning right); Mad Max; Ford Falcon . . .

    They're like a desert based, obsessively conservative version of the USA. ;):laugh:

    Hell, those kangas gave up their guns. Doesn't seem to conservative to me.

    Also, emission tests are for people who live in silly states with too many people, who like to sniff other people's mufflers.

    I like my state, despite its (many) whimsical laws. Also, don't you live in the state with (perhaps) the most bizarre alcohol laws in the country? (We got some crazy ones too :laugh:)

    Sniffing the muffler is an easy way to tell if you're burning rich, also you can hear the little backfires. :D

    Unfortunately, no. Our pussy House and Congress fell to the jack boot that is Fed Highway dollars and got rid of our pro open container stance. No more driving with a beer. Fortunately for me, I'm grandfathered in:laugh:

    Yeah I hear ya. The no speed limit thing I could get over, even dropping the DUI BAC limit to .08, but when they took away our open beer while driving I was very disappointed in our elected officials. There's just something gratifying about cracking open a cold tall boy while heading home after a long day of work.

    :toast:

    I gotta join this club, go USA! Wooooo!

    American English has undoubtedly enriched the language as a whole, but I will never forgive you people for pronouncing the first syllable of data as a rhyme of day rather than a sound resembling the first syllable of daddy. Do you all do that?

    You can't tell me that Limeys call him Commander (short a)Data. I thought you all were the ones with the Star Trek avatars.

    Did you just explicit cast Data?

    Because that is his name. It has nothing to do with pronouncing it a certain way. Data himself corrected the replacement doctor when she incorrectly said Dat-a.

    In his words, "The difference good doctor is one is my name. The other is not."

    I disagree with the reasoning behind the enforced pronunciation, but if they got Patrick Stewart to say Day-ta, who am I to argue?

    If you have a name and you like it pronounced in an unconventional way, then that is your name. Who is to say otherwise and tell you that you are wrong, it's your damn name.
