heh heh. Plates belong to owners here too. I'm glad I didn't opt to get the plate reading ollllo I was thinking of getting. It would no longer suit my ride either.

I tried to get "MEDIC8R" on my new Georgia tag, but it got rejected. They musta thought I was endorsing recreational medic8ing.

Virginia was much easier to get vanity tags in. I saw "I95 SUX" and "RT3 SUX". Yes, I saw them on I-95 and Virginia Route 3.

Interesting post-script: SUX is the airport code for Sioux City, Iowa.

From the wikipedia article:

The airport designator "SUX" has been contentious. Sioux City Mayor Craig Berenstein in 2002 described SUX as an "embarrassment" to the city. After petitioning the FAA for a changed airport identifier in 1998 and 2002, authorities found the alternatives offered - GWU, GYO, GYT, SGV and GAY - to be unappealing, and elected to stay with SUX. In October 2007, airport board member Dave Bernstein proposed embracing the identifier, saying "Let's make the best of it. I think we have the opportunity to turn it into a positive." and noting "I've got buddies that I went to college with in different cities that can't even remember their own birthdays, but they all know the Sioux City designator — SUX." The airport now sells merchandise with the words "Fly SUX".

---

Was it not hilarious that the FAA basically said, "We'll trade you a GAY for a SUX"?

Then they'd have to put mesh tank tops on all incoming flights.

Loc: It's all about the location.
I found a leak in my basement this last couple of days with the warmer weather. I patched that very spot a few years ago by chiselling out the crack some, then mixing up a patch of hydraulic cement and filling it back in. It seemed OK until yesterday when I noticed a small puddle on the basement floor. Anyway, for the last couple of hours I've been chiselling and grinding out the crack to seal it again...real messy crap....

Errr, I think we should start a new thread..."What shitee thing are you not appreciating tonight?"
