  • For post #11650, why so many cars lined up to get gas at a very rural location? The terrain is definitely woodsy / mountainous and from the number of cars waiting in line, you'd think this was the last-chance gas station for the next 300 miles.

        • A two-fer from today's Old Motor:

          We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.

          Ayn Rand:
          "You can avoid reality, but you cannot avoid the consequences of avoiding reality."

                        Not quite, but the first five letters of your answer are correct. BP

                                Right, John; that was one of their lines of oil, but it wasn't the specific name they assigned to their lubrication services.

                                It was one word and, as you can see from the answer to Skyway, the first five letters were G U L F L BP
