How you, too, can make the terrorists already have won 
Via J-Walk:
At Fuzrock's, you can contribute a saying in the form of:
If _____________, that means the terrorists have already won.

  • If I can't get a decent sugar-free vanilla soy latte in every podunk town in Ohio, that means the terrorists have already won!
  • If reading the words "Sunday! Sunday!! Sunday!!!" doesn't make you think of monster trucks, that means the terrorists have already won!
  • If you land on Illinois ave, and the terrorists have a hotel on it, and all you have is 76 dollars and three mortgaged railroads, that means the terrorists have already won!
My contribution: "If I can't buy a gallon of gas from Saudi Arabia for less than a 16-ounce bottle of filtered tap water from Coca-Cola, that means the terrorists have already won!"

I mean, honestly; they pump the oil out of the ground in Saudi Arabia, put it on a truck, send it to a port, put it on a ship, sail it across the Atlantic, unload it on a dock, put it in a truck, ship it to a refinery, turn it into gasoline (however they do that), put it on a truck, send it to a gas station, and pump it into an underground tank; and, yes, it sometimes costs over $2 a gallon. Get over it.

(Of course, I take public transportation, and haven't had my own car since early 2000; so I'm less impressed by the weeping and wailing and gnashing of teeth over the cost of gas than I could be. There aren't many reasons to feel good about having to rely on city buses and regional rail trains, so I'll take what I can get.)
