    The autobahn, maybe?

    Hey echulo, you live in miami (which is like 45 minutes from my house - I live in boca), right? What's the speed limit on 95? I thought it was like 60-something...maybe 70? If it's 55 then I don't think a single person has ever obeyed the speed limit there

    I do not care for this too much: In Missouri, not too many years ago, voters decided against a proposition that would allow people to carry concealed firearms. Missourians definitely do not need some small state in the Northeast telling them what is legal and what is not legal because of some Vermont residents in our state who think their state laws extend into other states or should extend into other states, at least. The Vermont legislature can pass all the legislation it wants to extend Vermont state laws and regulations into other states, but other states have no need to recognize it. In essence, if Vermont passes a law that would enable Vermont residents with concealed-weapons permits to extend their validity into other states where carrying concealed weapons is illegal and, then, some Vermont residents with their state's permits bring their concealed weapons into another state, the law-enforcement authorities in that state have every right to arrest that person. Also, this congressperson, Rep. Ron Paul of Texas, to stuff his region's (the South's) views down other regions' throats. Comparing concealed-weapons permits to marriage and drivers' licenses is crazy because driving and marriage rights are recognized in every state whereas the right to carry a concealed weapon is not quite so universal. Just now noticing the copyright date (1999), I assume this awful piece of legislation was immediately killed and will never successfully emerge from Congress.

    I am not saying I agree with it, I am not even from Vermont myself, I am from Florida (well originally from New York) so I don't really care, I am just saying that it was interesting that's all.

    Nope, I forget where right now, but it's probably a good hour 45, hour 15 drive for you if you were gonna go. Oh well. Could've been fun to meet up there. I might go early to meet the band or something...fun! (//edit for the mods, Ok, I'll stop talking about this here...)

    If anyone is a big fan of The Man Show you may have heard this already. If Adam was king of the world, to end the confusion between soccer and football, soccer would be called ***ball. That's a great idea! Because football is a great sport while soccer is a pile of crap that some call a sport. It's stupid how you can't even use your hands, and almost every soccer player is a freakin wuss/crybaby.

    ok if they are such "cry babies" then y do smerican foot ballers wear layer upon layer of protective clothing.
    but soccer players get a pair of shin pads and thats bout it.

    its not that i like soccer, i prefer real forms of football like rugby union and rugby leauge (unless your australian then u've probbly never heard of leauge, but trust me its a great game).

    Um football players wear leg pads, shoulder pads, and a helmet. (I don't call that layer upon layer). They wear that much because it is a contact sport, and if you have watched an entire game you have seen some really hard hits where people would be hospitalized if not for their padding. As for soccer, they shouldn't even need shin pads because its a wuss sport. The worst that happens is they slide into each other and one guy cries cuz his leg hurts but isn't injured. Some football players play with broken bones and when they are in bad shape. Soccer players wuss out. As for your rugby, I don't understand the game so I find it boring but I do respect it.
