That's always productive, especially calling people idiots

Did you guys hear this one?

One day Mr. Bond, a cow and a squirrel walk into a bar and Mr. Bond says, "Anyone heard of a fuel gauge recall?". Cow replied, "You're late to the conversation." prompting Squirrel to say, "Don't be so snarky to Mr. Bond."

I don't how it ends but it has caused me to chortle.

We've got mad cow disease and a rabbid squirrel, what could go wrong?

The trade journals make mountains out of mole-hills to sell hits to their web sites. It is a programming flaw (bug) in how the low fuel indication and miles-to-empty values are calculated. It is fixed by pushing new firmware in to the computer.

There will still be a large number of people who imagine that the dash board will be disassembled or the gas tank will be dropped to do major surgery on the car.

You are always gambling whenever you are depending upon some display that tells you "11.2 miles to empty" and then you get bent out of shape when it conks out 3 miles later. It's like "OMG! how could they do this to me! if I only had those additional 7 miles I could of prevented that accident officer!"

Hi folks, I have been getting a lot of complaints lately and I am going to have to start handing out bans. Stop making a mess of my website, thank you.

Then the bar owner showed up and banned everyone from his bar.......
