    Not true - ran an experiment for one tank of gas - was working night shift. I posted that I never impacted any other traffic (literally or figuratively) in any way during the experiment. You seem to like to pick on the stuff with which you disagree and inflame it to dangerous proportions. My God!!!! What if a flock of nuns were walking across the street, your engine was off, you had applied the brakes so many times that they were not working any more, and still going 60 mph (though you never exceed 45 mph in town) and you crushed all of them? Is that worth 50 cents per week?

    The good that came from that week is that now that I am back to a normal schedule, and using normal driving habits, my mileage on my 6.0L 5,000 truck has been averaging over 17.5 mpg in town. It was well worth the time and learning.

    If the nuns were really Jehovas Witnesses on their way to my house, I could see it as OK.


    Good thing there's no balls anymore since I'd lose all of them for a simple joke. SB

    I agree ....."WE don't need no Stinkin' Badges" (or green balls-in this case)

    Thank you. Just wanted to make sure that people know that I know that I do not have anywhere near the experience or expert advice as, say, some Frank guys.

    I don't know. Good jokes were good for up to two green balls each. Bad jokes, now that's another discussion.

    The important thing is 1)that I had just enough green balls to be called a "boating genious" and 2) I made sure I showed that to the admiral before it was too late.


    PS

    Admiral was quick to deduce that this system was not accurate.

    If you are looking for feedback I like the way eBay works. Positive, Neutral, negative and you get an opportunity to respond to the feedback and you know who left the feedback. I think the knowing who left the feedback will help keep the system in check...perhaps even making it public for all to see and review.

    Who turned the green rep squares into the ball joke anyway? That was the beginning of the end. Maybe someone should walk the CSR plank.
