    $3.65 for unleaded? That is a bargain where I'm at.

    ...I'm... not sure this counts for news... Wait wait, how'd they even calculate his fuel consumption?!

    I think you might be doing "news" wrong.

    Blahblah, whatever. It came up in a news ticker I was watching, I thought some might find it funny and posted it here. If it needs to go someplace else, I'm cure it will get moved. My apologies for making more work for the staff if that's the case.

    Hey, for being probably a total guess, that MPG's just about right for a semi in the city. They're lucky to get 7 or 8 on the highway.

    Price/pump is wrong though--semis of course use diesel, and diesel costs significantly more than gasoline.

    1. How did they find out how much gas he chugs, and why use gas when he could use Energon?

    2. If that's such a big problem, why not walk? He can haul ass when he needs to, I've seen him.

    3. Since when do Helicopters get in car accidents?

    4. Why can't I stop grinning at that story?

    Not news in the slightest. Do not spam the news forum with this.

    Since I see no trademark acknowledgment, I'm assuming they're using the likeness of Optimus Prime without consent from Hasbro?

    See?


    Fair enough, although one post is hardly spamming.

    Yeah, spam would be if you had a history of this. Instead you've spammed the news with first time reviews of highly anticipated figures that have yet to come out! :lol  (spamming news with news for those slow on the jokes)

    I was going to ask why this wasn't in Videos because I glanced at the URL and saw it end in "mpg". :( 

    Optimus Prius actually sounds really cool if Hasbro could somehow use it. It's got that futurey twang.
