A few ideas; if I display ignorance, I'd appreciate correction.

First, comparing unions from nation to nation--and, to a lesser degree, state to state--is somewhat pointless. The rights of...

Strikes me that it isn't so much the car as it is a perception of the car. Honestly, I find wagons slightly odd to drive after a sedan, too: the amount of open space behind the driver is new, and...

The reason the price of non-oil goods goes up is because oil is used in transportation of those goods and so the cost of transportation goes up, which drives up the cost of the good. But in this...

ULSD (<15 ppm) at retail pumps by September, 2006. :thumbup: Of course, it won't be long before EU transitions to "no-sulphur" (<10 ppm) diesel, but considering where we're at now (<500 ppm), I'm...
