That fact that we also correctly surmise that they're assholes is irrelevent to our defensive driving.
Anyways, the Hummer dudes are getting their medicine with gas at $3.00 a gallon and rising (thank god). Can't wait 'til it hits $4 or $5 and they're all scrambling to sell the stupid things in a dead economy. That'll be VERY amusing. "FOR SALE: Giant metal penis extension. 8 mpg highway, 2 city. MUST GO! Make me an offer."

Thanks for the war, ya pricks!
Assumptions are, well, for....
I get 20 MPH in mine. (H3 model).
I'm the one waiting to let you in (don't get thrown for that, drivers are very kind here in North San Diego County).
I'm the one doing 65 when you are passing me at 75.
I'm the one who forgave having kids so I can waste as much resources as my phantom family would use.
I use it for what it was designed for, heavy off road use in challenging locations.
Not so I can get down to Starbucks for a cafe latte after an earthquake.
Last time I remembered, this is America, where I can do stuff you don't approve of so you can do stuff I don't approve of. It's called freedom, get used to it.
