    Meh. Show me something that's actually dangerous, not something that just annoys ACS.

    The only problem I see is the quantity of water in those VP Racing fuel jugs. If one person would drink all that, then dilutional hyponatremia is assured. There should be a warning or something.

    Since California law requires fuel to be only in red jugs, There is probably water or hazardous waste in those jugs....

    Funny, I rarely see red fuel jugs at the track. Most of them are opaque/white. You know, so you can see how much is in them.

    California: Where elected officials believe their constituents to be so stupid that laws must be passed to protect the masses from themselves. This belief is continuously justified each time we re-elect them.

    Is not an unjustified belief.... The vast majority of people are well below average.

    Everytime I hear this I have a brief, terrifying moment where I realize that it's true (except for the "well below" part), and I become frightened by the thought of sharing the world with these people.


    Then I wonder where exactly I stand on that bell curve. or

    When I was in night law school, I had to take two summer school classes. They were taught by a visiting professor from the East Coast, who happened to also be a Catholic Priest. Nice guy.

    Anyway, he often said "California never had a thought it didn't codify." (Enact into law)
