Is being rated 8-10 in the world sucking? Not the last I heard. And, if
the US sucks, why did the U20 team beat Argentina and Egypt and
tie Deutschland before losing to Italy? And why is the US's Women's
team rated 1st?
I assume U20 is "under twenty"? If they are indeed kicking ass, then the
soccer moms have served their purpose: a new generation of top notch
soccer players is emerging from the US.
Anyway, just I checked the Fifa World Football (yes, that's "soccer")
Rankings: teh U Ess of A is ranked 10th! I might have to retract that
"sucks" statement. Sorry... Old prejudices die the hardest.
Yeah, the US (men - the women have been on top for most of the
history of international women's soccer ;-> ) have inched up over
the last 5 years. They're not quite ready to bid for a WC, however,
let alone win one.

Here flip, this one is for you! This is what a typical parking lot looks
like. the Groceries store, the local High school, College, doesn't matter. I
took this pic in the Disneyland Parking lot. Every row looked just about
There aren't all that many, really, though I live half an hour from the
city, so most of the people around that drive trucks do so because they need
them for their buisinesses, etc. The distance from common destinations is
such that fuel economy is more important. I drive 30k+ miles per year, so
fuel costs are a significant part of my budget. My miles are split between
a Dodge 3500 Van and my 318is. Here in upstate NY gas is about $2.25/gal.
I saw a report that said one out of every two vehicles sold in
California last year was either an oversize truck or an SUV. California
has not built a new petroleum refinery in 25 years, the few they have
are stretched beyond capacity. Whenever there is a proposal to build a
new refinery, however, the local people shout "NIMBY!!" (Not In MY Back
Yard!) Then they bitch about the high price of gas. . . . Hummers and
Hummer IIs are becoming very popular in our area (Central Kentucky) and
some families are getting modified Ford panel trucks to run the kiddies
to soccer lessons, and pick up milk at the store. It is REALLY getting
out of hand.
Poland, 1 euro/L
but I've LPG installation so I pay 0,425 eurocents/L
I've the same car, consumption in the city:14 (lpg)
outside the city;10-11 lpg
and I do not drive slowly;)
we have to remember that car with lpg has about 20% bigger consumption than
on normal fuel
under LPG i presume you're speakin about liquid gas, the one that comes in
those orange iron bottles and is used for stoves...of course, the one you
use in your car is specially modified installation for cars. it consumes
about a liter more, but that liter is almost twice as cheaper than regular
