robert, an old co-worker and myspace friend of mine, wrote this and posted it as a bulletin last week. though i can't take credit for devising it, you can bet its a game i'll be participating in. here's what robert wrote:

"Here's a fun little game I came up with a few weeks back...

If and when you are driving, and you see a Hummer or Hum-V coming in the opposite direction, stick your hand out the window and give them the thumbs down.
It's probably one of the most satisfying things in the world. I mean, I can't physically stop inconsiderate people from buying these things and subsequently driving themselves around the country wasting fuel and creating more pollutants, but God dammit I'm going to let them know how I feel about it.

It's peaceful and direct...and hopefully effective in embarrassing these people enough not to drive that vehicle.

The more the merrier; get your friends involved. Go Hummer-Hunting!
Nothing says "You Suck!" like a car full of people waving their thumbs down at your over-consumptive lifestyle and waste. These Hummer drivers don't have to worry about anyone else in the car being shocked or awed by the "Thummers" though because they never seem to have any other passengers."

hummers are completely legal. anyone with enough expendable income can go out and pick one up. its a perk in our society. that being said, it doesn't mean you should. unless you're hauling several tons of cinder blocks across mountainous terrain on a regular basic or you're currently serving a tour in a war somewhere, you're greatly over estimating your needs in a form of transportation. a minuscule fraction of a fraction of a fraction of our population even comes close to requiring such a monstrosity of a vehicle.

another one of our perks is free speech.
feel free to use it.
