Thank you! Congrats to you on your swimming owl FP. I made a gif of that over the weekend and was going to use it for the Gif-Together, but some buzzy insect beat me to posting it. LOL! I hope that owl got out of the water okay. Once their feathers get thoroughly wet, they can't fly, and I don't know how long they can stay afloat.
I pay $140 a month for insurance which has a $3000 deductible, which means I also pay all medical costs until I have paid out $3000 before any payment from insurance begins. Your country definitely has the advantage when it comes to health care.
...and road taxes, and taxes on cars and more cartax not to mention BTW(VAT)... car prices: a nice normal Mazda 3 sedan 2.0l starts @ $16.700, here at 22k euros, times 1.25, wud bee 27kdollars! LOL how much do you pay in health-insurance (base) a month?
Gasoline prices have been falling here for several months, and just his morning I paid $2.60 a gallon. We all know this won't last but are enjoying it while it lasts. I know gasoline prices in your country and other European countries are terribly high.
*bzz* Here Gas(oline), nawt gas (LPG) or cowpoo, just went down a bit to almost 1.85 euros a liter, dat bee 7 euros a gallon, times 1.25 makes 8 dollers 75 cents a gallon, thank you... How much do you pay nao?
Ai bet dat 200 ci wuzzent as efficient as dat "engine-of-the-year". :) Here in Teh Netherlands almost all new cars sold are kwipt wiff small eco enjins, or hybrids or electric due to taxreductions... It's estimated every "green" car sold/leased costs us taxpayers a whopping 160.000 euros in subsidees/taxrebates/co2-emission-mumbo-jumbo-deals! Pleh! Ai wanno V8! Or V10! :P (BMW M5/ Porsche Carrera GT...) *sigh*

Great Ken Block gif! I've watched that video and drooled. One of my best friends in high school had a 1965 Mustang, and we rode to school in it frequently. It was a sweet car but not as sweet as Block's. LOL
