When you spend 600 a month on gas, then you'll be on my level of global warming contribution. Till then you wish you could be like me.






















LMAO (BTW: I know you were being sarcastic with the awesome)

Its not 2k miles a month man, the gas burns up QUICK in the city. I can watch the fuel gauge on the SRT empty out. If you focus you see the needle slowly moving. LOLz


And LOL, I thought you were being sarcastic.

Ohh, I figured $600 divided by $3/gal = 200 gallons/month. 200 gallons x 10 mpg = 2,000 miles per month.
