    "Coal rolling may also be directed at asian cars, bicyclists, leftist protesters, and confrontational pedestrians. Practitioners cite "American freedom" and "a stand against rampant environmentalism" as reasons for coal rolling.
    That kind of says it all, align that with "the right to arm bears"

    Damn right, and the only reason I want one.
    Oh, and rest assured, my Bear is [well] armed!

    When I pull-up somewhere in the Vette I occasionally get the question "how big is the engine in that - I suppose 5 litre or so? - how many gallons to the mile, ha! ha!" I respond - "oh, probably about 14 or 15 mpg if I'm lucky [mperial mpg Malamute John, not US] - about the same as a supercharged Range Rover" - when they finally get around to asking "OK so how big is the engine then" They generally give me an unbelieving look when I tell them "8000 cc's"
