    The rest of you- especially those of you that aren't American- are simply un-American.

    I got mine on my sixteenth birthday. Yeah.

    Hi5, now you're officially an American.

    Your gun, cheeseburger and 10 gallon hat should arrive in the mail shortly.

    Here in Alaska everyone is issued a drivers license along with their birth certificate.

    If you continue to drive as you do for the rest of your life, your kids are going to be 38 before they work up the courage to get their license.

    That won't be an issue since I will be forcing them to get it when they turn 16.

    Pfft. I got my license at 18 and I've still been driving longer all of you put together. I'll be as american as I want to be.

    Yes but have you used as much gasoline? Because that is a point of pride for me.

    Yes. My most recent car was an El Camino that got 7 mpg at worst and 16 at best, and two points of interest in my past were a '59 Chevy pickup and a '61 Ford pickup, both with bigblock engines and three speed column shifters. I think I've pumped some gas in my time.

    What is car insurance like after you've hit the 5-year mark, with no accidents on your record? I guess I'll be there in one more year. I got my license when I was 18, and just biked around town all the years prior. Can't believe I've been driving for 4 years already! I'm so ancient.

    I'm paying about $86/month for insurance right now, under my parents.

    I was worried that this 27-yr-old dude with a faux hawk they brought in as an overflow teacher for one of my classes was going to drop me from it, setting back my graduation plans a year.

    Luckily, I got a call from the chair of the department, being all "naw, dude. e'rrthing's cool."

    I want to reinforce my truck and put a bunch of stainless steel plates and rods in it. Then weld up a stainless steel grill with spikes and such on the front. Have kevlar and steel woven into the tires.

    Also a machine gun mount would be great on top. I would make it the centerpiece to your DESTRUCTION!

    Man, fuck credit cards. I got charged interest on a 2k statement because I failed to pay off like $10 of that due to paying my statement ahead of time and then having one show up riiiight before the billing period ended. On another card, apparently you start getting charged interest from the day you fucking buy something with it. When the fuck have credit cards ever done that?

    I just got done watching the zero punctuation review for the Conduit for the wii and am saddened. It pisses me off that developers would promise "None of that waggle shit" and then, of course, put it in the game. Other than that its just a horrible game.

    Also, the wii remote is an inergonomic peice of shit. I don't care if its attracting gamers, it's fucking painful.

    Wait, how else do I build credit? I've been led to believe that credit cards were my only option, really.

    Although, with 30 years of student loans to pay off, I might not need to bother.

    I think people just see the word "Credit" and find it both beneficiary or crippling. It's something to just assume be the only source of credit.

    I want to name mine a Wang Card.

    "Would that be cash or wang?" They would say.

    "Wang" I reply

    It really is pretty stupid, mine is racked up because I needed to move in a hurry to get away from a psycho neighbour. I just keep putting off getting rid of the debt.

    However, a credit card can be pretty handy providing you only use it to pay for shit you can afford. So you pay it off clean every month.
    When you use it as a small loan factory however, it's pretty dumb.

    Does it appear on your desktop or the video itself? If so then it must be the program you are using to record. (if you are using one)

    See, the way that I function is: save up money. Put all money into checking account. Buy only what I have money for. Get more money. Continue saving.

    I imagine a credit card would be like:

    Buy something I can already buy with what's in my checking account. Wait for bill. Pay off balance. Learn of hidden fee. Learn of mistake in billing. Learn that I suddenly have a billion-jillion dollars in credit card debt. Be laughed at by the credit card companies. Sell all material wealth. Live in tent for a month, living off of canned peaches. Credit card companies send me a horde of rabid dogs. Live in torn-up tent for the remainder of my days, frothing at the mouth, unable to consume my final can of peaches. Fade from memory and time.

    Hit "V" - the move tool, and that will allow you to drag the line back up to the ruler.

    If you want to avoid doing that in the future, turn off rulers (under View).
