I disagree. I think that's 90% myth. I'm also a cheapskate and the thought of paying for premium gas makes me want to curl up in the fetal position.

I've heard both sides of the high octane debate but what a mechanic told me once was if it recommends premium fuel, try the cheap stuff until you hear knocking then move up a grade until it goes away.

That makes complete sense to me. If you dont hear knocking with the cheapest grade, I see no reason to step up to Silver.

You should only put what the engine was designed for, IMHO.

So there's a potential huge snowstorm for southern New England this Friday/Saturday that has been creeping west on model runs. Would be rain/sleet for Jersey, but if it keeps bumping west would be snow.

My goodness. Could you imagine the fire storm if this memo had been released during another administration.

All by-products of the Patriot Act. The reach of the government has no limit when it has free reign to chase an undefined threat.

FIXED.

Obama is much like a King. The press is an important part of freedom and liberty, and without an investigative media he can pretty much do whatever he wants (and often does).

It's not a tough sell when approximately 95.6% of the media are comprised of people who voted for you.

I'm not so sure its that simple ...The drone program has been expanded and redefined under the current administration. It's kind of their go-to solution and that is really somewhat of a new philosophy.

I have not formed any opinion as really don't have any details of the policy....But I am shocked by how quiet the news is about this memo. At the very least I would have expect to see a National conversation this morning? But in large part there is nothing but silence. Seems strange (Well I don't really mean strange, I mean hypocritical)

Free Fallin' (song) is my favorite station. Followed by Bruce Springsteen and In Too Deep (song) for the 90's and 00's hits.


Also, awesome fact of the day: Albert Einstein used to charge $1 to sign an autograph. He donated the money to charity.

All I know is I'm driving a car almost as old as I am and it never breaks down so I must be doing something right.

My most random station is Beethoven. I sometimes play it when I'm trying to study or write a paper.

Vaxjo would approve.

I listen to the 'indie rock' station a lot. And really just some random stations, like Beyond The Sea (Yeah, the Bobby Darin song) and Yelle (French electro-pop).

I've been listening to some really diverse, and often strange things lately.

Try the station for "Bohren & Der Club of Gore" - it's very down-tempo, ambient jazz. The station you get generally ends up being a good mix of that style along with down-tempo electric or otherwise instrumental music.

I generally don't listen to Pandora anymore though, the audio quality (64kbps AAC) is pretty crappy on the free version.

If you want the $1.15 you're going to get versus the $1.15 Million each of the plaintiff attorneys will get.
