With the risks of space travel in its infancy and the inherent dangers and unknowns, they must have been the size of grapefruits.
But I'm sure big oil has both of them locked away in their super secret vault.
The carwash political lobbyists and Unite Carwash Labor Employees of America Now! (UCLEAN) will bury this technology.
Look what happened to the 100mpg ICE engine.
Won't somebody think of the car wash towels dryers!!
Petroleum fuel taxes (local, state and federal taxes) make up a large majority of the funding for the projects. If people aren't buying gas this revenue stream will decline and the condition of roads and bridges will rapidly deteriorate.
That money that you have saved by not buying fuel will instead be spent on the suspension repairs and new tires required due to damage from pot holes, etc.
As a result I would expect to see a usage based road tax implemented.
Some type of system where you have to report your mileage annually and a bill is sent.
The Kurds dislike the Arabs and Persians. They just want to be independent and left alone.
In fact during the height of the action in Iraq you could eat lunch at a sidewalk cafe, go to the mall and catch a movie in Erbil while suicide bombers were blowing themselves up in Baghdad.
Home Sweet Shithole.
At least you could hit golf balls into the lake, go fishing, and there was a bowling alley for a time.
I too still jump at loud unxpected noises and wonder how long before that reaction fades. Nothing freezes you in your tracks like the sound of a mortar coming out of the tube.
And due to such a ratio your date could be "high mileage". If she's willing with you, it is very likely that she was willing with others.
As for social life, there isnt much to due outside of work, eat, sleep and hit the gym. There is no booze on base (the Turkish truck drivers can get it for you) so those type of social events are non-existent.
What I missed was privacy. Being in a small office with 4 other people 12 hours a day 7 days a week and then sharing a hooch doesnt allow for much privacy. I learned a lot about myself in those two years. Sitting in a bunker while mortars fall around you gives you some time for personal reflection. I also saw parts of the world that most people never will. And yes, I did make some cash. Its also a great conversation starter (yes chicks dig it!). People love to talk about it, and I have hours of stories and thousands of pictures to go along with my experience.
Would I do it again? Absolutely. Would i recommend it? Depends on the person. Not everybody is built to handle it. The stress, the austerity, the separation from family can do crazy things to people.
I must know what Walter the Farting Dog is up to!
While it does sound like a great idea it would never happen. No HOA would ever make an exemption. It defeats the whole purpose of the HOA.
Also, you are going to lose your good faith deposit on the property because you didn't close.
Is it really worth throwing away money to try and screw with the HOA? Just find another property that doesn't have an HOA.

I guess your LORAN clock hasn't been right for about 18 months now.
But look at it on the bright side, the change in power frequency won't have any significant effect on you.
Now excuse me, I'm off to Starbucks for a handjob.
I believe it is only in 2 or 3 test stores in the Tampa market. But it is closer to what you are looking for. I have no idea how successful the test has been.
