time, newsweek, or any other liberal publication would no doubt give that title to "change."

i'm waiting to see if it will be proceeded by the MORE defining word "positive." time will tell of course.

hey, even hypermiling can be practiced in a negative way.

Where did that come from? If you're angry about your guy losing the election I'm sure there are plenty of political forums for you to vent on, otherwise lets talk about fuel economy.

Tell me about it...I just got a huge speeding ticket because I pulsed too high during a P&G. I usually EOC on that empty, uninhabited slightly downhill road for 2 miles, but it does require a big pulse to start...

speeding is speeding, Holy.

Nice word of the year. I know I jumped on the band wagon right at the beginning of the year and its been a word in my mind throughout '08.

first off, i believe the word i presented is VERY much related to the thread because it's been used certainly with much more frequency than hypermiling.

secondly, i'm not angry, just disappointed in the voters apparent dillusion in regard to voting on the premise of change. there are other foolish premises that are not related, tho legit concern for another topic.

third, MY guy didn't lose!

fourth, as said previously...you don't have to answer ANY particular thread or post!

i thought it VERY interesting that a word other than "change" would be nominated, let alone be named, word of the year on any playing field. if the truth be known, i'm thrilled hypermiling was chosen. i'm sick of hearing "change."

hopefully the word of the year will catch on such that more of us will at least practice "light" hypermiling techniques! good thread hockey4mnhs.
