    I’m a little bit afraid of any Utahan under the age of 50 who chooses the In God We Trust license plate.

    I'm a little bit afraid of any Utahn who doesn't know the correct spelling of Utahn.

    Is that the flag plate? They seem to be a political statement in opposition to the NFL kneeling thing.

    As solid a hard rock ballad "Home Sweet Home" is, Crue's "Without You" is even better. It's a shame every kid who grew up in the 80's knows how to play Home Sweet Home on the piano, yet Without You is largely forgotten.

    It's a brave new world in rural Oregon where they can actually - wait for it - pump. their. own. gas. Be careful out there, HFN:

    From a Forbes article
    But even this tiny increase in freedom was apparently too much for some Oregonians. In a Facebook post that’s now gone viral, local news station KTVL polled their fans for their thoughts about the new law. Some did not take the news well.

    Here are a few premium selections:

    “Many people are not capable of knowing how to pump gas and the hazards of not doing it correctly. Besides I don't want to go to work smelling of gas when I get it on my hands or clothes. I agree Very bad idea.”

    “I don't even know HOW to pump gas and I am 62, native Oregonian.....I say NO THANKS! I don't want to smell like gasoline!”

    “I've lived in this state all my life and I REFUSE to pump my own gas. I had to do it once in California while visiting my brother and almost died doing it. This a service only qualified people should perform. I will literally park at the pump and wait until someone pumps my gas. I can't even”

    For some reason Baker and few other small outposts have been allowed to pump-your-own after a certain time (9-10pm) for a few years.

    I think they will be ok pumping their own gas... After they figure out how that gas thingie works:

    I travel to two rural Oregon counties on occasion. I CANNOT WAIT to pump my own gas when I go next time. The freedom, denied for so long, when it breaks free, will be a glorious thing to behold.

    Sometimes that is the only nozzle position that will let gas flow at the maximum rate into my 2005 Mustang without continually clicking off. I don't know why many nozzles are just fine in that car but some have some sort of back pressure issue.

    We were in Chile this past summer where they view pumping gas like some older Oregonians do. Honestly, it was weird to have these odd guys come out and stand there leering at you while the gas pumped into the car. I think I prefer doing it myself.
    PLesa excuse the tpyos.

    My inlaws live in rural Oregon and have always pumped their own gas. Of course, their town has a co-op that was exempt from the old law.

    So basically your story adds no value to the conversation. Might as well have said "My in-laws live in Maryland and have always pumped their own gas. Of course, their state is not Oregon so they are exempt from the old law."
    Ain't it like most people, I'm no different. We love to talk on things we don't know about.

    I always stopped at the Arrowhead gas station on the Umatilla reservation when passing through Oregon because I could pump my own gas there.

    Do I add value to any conversation?

    I’m just pointing out that not all Oregonians have been brainwashed into thinking pumping gas is hard or dangerous.

    I was looking at the list of birds seen in Bimini, Bahamas (we're considering going there for a couple of days in March) and I saw this. I'm assuming he got Cornell's Ornithology Lab confused with the gas company.

    when the morning commute is your favorite part of the job and you kinda dread the end of said commute, you probably dislike your job.
