    You get five hours for $120? And she's great? Where do I sign up?

    my grandfather in law, the smartest person I've ever known (by lightyears) once ran out of gas in the middle of the Holland tunnel. Somebody finally came and gave him some gas, and he offered to pay the guy for the gas, but the guy was just like "don't, just get the fuck out of here so traffic can get through"

    I had a buddy who was riding his bike (motorcycle) thru the Holland and ran over some broken glass right in the middle of the tunnel. Both tires flat in about 10 secs. Started pushing the bike along the wall but almost got killed by cars zipping around him. Decided safest thing was to go down the middle of his lane. He was wearing leathers and by the time he got out he had lost a few pounds of water weight and half a tube's worth of totally irate drivers flipping him off as the shot by him...

    my sis in law, who rides a motorcycle, says riding a bike through the tunnel is a terrible experience with all of the car fumes and shit

    that's what my friend said: 'riding thru a tunnel is bad enough. but instead of riding you're slowly walking while pushing a couple of hundred pounds of metal & wearing heavy horsehide jackt w/ a dozens of pissed off drivers behind you honking'

    Sounds like a decent Land Rover ad since it was still able to drive
