I don't want to be paranoid, but who the hell knows what's coming at us, I don't see anything good.

1. relax freddie, we're safer now y'know
i'm still waiting for y2k, and i think it finally arrived. in the election year 2000. i don't see anything good on the horizon either.
in fact, i haven't felt this much actual dread in the air since in was a kid during the cuban missile crisis. duck and cover

2. And the point would be
what, exactly? So that you could drive to the looted stores? Escape to the hills where you'll live off the land or get shot for trespassing? Or, most likely, be a sitting duck in grid lock?

5. I don't know what the point would be
I just feel better knowing that there is a full tank, if I don't use it I can siphon it out for the marshmallow woman.

6. Buy a good bike...
It is fun, great exercise, and is better for the environment.
