May 29, 2012 gillsans commented on Rural America: Cheaper Gas?.
Perhaps it's because rural counties and municipalities have lower gas taxes than the City of Seattle. Perhaps it's because the real estate that the gas station sits on is much more expensive in Columbia City. Perhaps it's because the people of Columbia City are willing to pay higher prices.

Considering that low-end digital SLR cameras start at $500 or so, I'd hardly consider this a "Rich Person's Toy."

Oh shit, that's from the TAMI show. I just watched that last week. It is simply fucking amazing. The Stones come on after James Brown and suck ass in comparison. Everyone put The TAMI Show on your Netflix queue right now.

The on-screen text says it is regarded as the "ultimate Rock n' Soul" footage. They are mistaken. While this James Brown performance is amazing, Stax Live in Norway (or something like that) blows it out the water.

My uncle used to drive a train for BNSF. Whenever his brother would start telling a hunting story, he would always say, "I've killed more deer (or whatever) with my train than you ever will with your gun!."

Moving on, I know that you wouldn't be able to feel anything in a train when you hit a camel, but I wonder if you'd be able to hear anything.
