Is the woman good looking, is her daughter 18??
Maybe the woman bought the SUV for future use, maybe she wants a lot of children.

ROFL, I'm just blabbering.

I guess to some people, size matters.
Sounds like a classic case of penis envy.

I've always said it doesn't matter how big it is. You just got to know how to use it right. This applies to a lot of things.

Cognitive Dissonance is an amazing thing. Wikipedia time :

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cognitive_dissonance

Cognitive dissonance is the perception of incompatibility between two cognitions, which can be defined as any element of knowledge, including attitude, emotion, belief, or behavior; in laymen's terms, it is the uncomfortable tension that comes from holding two conflicting thoughts at the same time. The theory of cognitive dissonance states that contradicting cognitions serve as a driving force that compels the mind to acquire or invent new thoughts or beliefs, or to modify existing beliefs, so as to reduce the amount of dissonance (conflict) between cognitions. Experiments have attempted to quantify this hypothetical drive.

The theory of cognitive dissonance was first proposed by the psychologist Leon Festinger in 1956 after observing the counterintuitive belief persistence of members of a UFO doomsday cult and their increased proselytization after the leader's prophecy failed. The failed message of earth's destruction, sent by aliens to a suburban housewife in 1956, became a disconfirmed expectancy that increased dissonance between cognitions, thereby causing most members of the impromptu cult to lessen the dissonance by accepting a new prophecy; that the aliens had instead spared the planet for their sake.


They know not what they do, or choose not to.

I think anyone who really supports the troops should donate their heavy steel monstrosites to some kind of Iraq recycling fund. The troops can drive 'em or use them for barricades/scrap metal/cut 'em up for armor plating. There could be commercials that sound like the "donate your car" commercials.
