    Amazing, it's like a Palindrome. And if the Jeep is on it's roof, I bet it says 'flip me over'.

      I was going to say "in it's natural state this is probably street legal."

    Obligatory. Absolutely obligatory since Julie Brown is one of my all-time favorite pop-comic lyricists…!

      "When I grow up I want to be a veterinarian,
      Because I love children".
      Can't argue with those.

        I don't think I've ever heard that song, but having had 2-3 dogs for the first 7 years of our marriage and a daughter for only a a couple of months, I have caught myself saying vet instead of pediatrician several times.

    When it inevitably rolls over, it says "BOOBIES".
    …or is that the wrong trick?
    I dunno… I forgot what I was saying. I was thinking about boobs.

      I'd totally get a 5318008 plate on a Suzuki Samurai.

    It's like a license plate frame I remember seeing in high school said: Not all dumbs are blonde.

    O.T. Shamelessly using the community for a question here: What would you want as a passenger in a taxi besides safety and timeliness? Would you have different expectations when you're in your home town commuting as opposed to being a tourist in a foreign place (assuming they spoke perfect English)?
    (Full disclosure: I'm starting a final-year project and I want to delay the unpleasant and potentially dangerous task of flagging down a busy businessman in a rush trying to hire a cab then interrogating him with my research questions, although I think I'll have to do it later on anyways…Help! I'm not a very good researcher!…)

      Do people commute by taxi? That sounds very expensive.
      I'd really like not to engage in useless conversation. Due to social conditioning, there's no way I can tell someone to stop talking that doesn't make me feel like a jerk. I don't want to feel like a jerk, and I don't want to have an awkward conversation with a stranger.
      As a tourist I would expect the driver to be able to recommend a few restaurants or tourist things to do. I would expect that in my home town as well, I just wouldn't ask them to.

        People don't often commute by taxi per se, but monied people in Manhattan and London and other metropolises can utilize a car service, where they have a regularly scheduled car and driver meet them at their door or place of business for errands, dinners out, or commuting. You ride in a nice Audi, Benz, BMW, or Jag. It's more expensive than taxi, and more chic than Lincoln Towncar limo, but less expensive than maintaining your own car and chauffeur.

          Car service in NYC is often a better deal than taking a taxi. The cars I've been in with this style service tend to be Town Cars (especially the extended-wheelbase "Executive" model), not luxury rides like Benz or Jag. Taxis have the advantage of picking up by being flagged down or at a taxi stand, car services are available by phone call only (or twitter, email, etc).
          The people I know there all have "their guy" at "their service" who's almost a member of the family, and prices are competitive with cab fares. Not only that, but if there's more people, either their guy knows another guy who works a van instead and they're happy to throw some business to a friend, or their guy's brother and cousin also work for the service, and we'll put together a little Town Car parade. Car service guys tend to be a lot better dressed and groomed, and their cars are much more comfortable than a taxi.
          Owning a car in NYC is expensive, high risk, and not really necessary except for getting out of town. It's far cheaper to take public transit and use car services.

      Minimizing wait time is the biggest issue. Then comes refused fares – where the cabbie won't take you to you destination. After that comes things like too long trip lengths, not taking credit cards and fare disputes, not taking all your party or luggage, comfort and cleanliness.
      Here's one link: http://www.nyc.gov/html/tlc/html/industry/taxicab
      TLC & NYC Planning Dept. have done a lot of work to research the taxi industry and to try to improve it, so look around.
      Folks waiting at cab stands have lots of time, too.
      I've done some research on this and we could continue this off-line if you like.

        I would love to! I'm currently contactable at hooniverselotte at hotmail dot com. Thanks for your help!

      For reals? I would want the driver to know his way around the expected coverage area.
      In my home town, too many Boston cabbies get completely lost in Boston if you're not going to Logan Airport or one of the major hotels. Terminal B to the Copley Plaza? No problem! Chandler Hotel in Boston to Jacques (pronounced "Jakes") street in Somerville? Fuhgeddaboudit! Oh yeah, GPS is only of limited help, because of road construction, street changes, and routing problems.
      In order to drive a black cab in London (the one in England), cabbies need to pass The Knowledge. They pass examination on 320 different runs in order to work in the city, and all the major landmarks and attractions. There are different Knowledge tests for London's suburbs. Boston's street layout is certainly no worse, and the drivers could do a lot better.

      Oh yeah, I'd also prefer that my cab driver have more than just a nodding acquaintance with soap and water. A little hygiene goes a long way towards a tip.

        I've had to show drivers how to get to my suburb from the airport, which is only two suburbs away. Taxi drivers down here rely on sat-nav for anywhere other than their own homes.

      The taxi driver is the same, if you are a tourist or it is somebody's home town. I'm not a good one to ask, I think I have been in a taxi less than a dozen times in my life and all but about 3 of those were on trips to the UK.

    If men hang trucknutz, what do female truck/Jeep owners hang from their hitch? Inquiring minds want to know.

    • PowerTryp October 5, 2011 at 2:06 pm - Reply

      They don't hang anything, just like on their body the headlights are up front and the ovaries are inside.
