The green one is more obivously done than the pink one. Behind the car where the brownish and yellowish barrier is, its not there. It stops only behind the car. You can't even see it through the windows. While in the pink one they actually took the time to either put it back or not edit it.

That is relevant whether you like it or not.
So, everyone that ever posts a pic on the internet should make sure it's JPEG and not BMP and make sure it's no bigger than 800x600 for everyone who has slow connections? All to show courtesy? I'm not bothered by waiting a minute or 2 or even 3 or maybe more to see a large picture. I shouldn't have to change my method to appease you. Maybe some people LIKE to see a big honkin picture as opposed to a medium sized one. So shouldn't I show common internet courtesy to them too? Or is it all about you? Even if I shouldn't show common internet courtesy to the people who like bigger pictures, does it really make me a "self-centered little twink" because I don't resize some insignificant picture to make things more convienent for only you?

1. It doesn't make it any more convenient for me. I have Roadrunner and a semi-screamer of a 'puter. It does make it better for those who don't have those items. Either way, you're probably still a self-centered little twink.

2. Even Cliffy agrees with me on this on. If two people with such diverging outlooks are on the same page, maybe there's a good reason.

Where to begin...
Really? Do we drive on the left side in Canada, or Brazil, or France, or basically the whole buttload of countries that can be seen here.
The imperial system, although not used by many countries is still used by the U.S., U.K., and New Zealand.

Also, I am aware that cars are driven on the other side of the road in some countries, but those two pictures are clearly the exact same, just flipped around.

You have provided one argument for me being a dumbass. I, on the other hand, can give 3 for you. Your grammar and spelling is terrible. I had trouble understanding what the hell you were talking about half the time. You brought up a thread from more than 2 years ago--I think they've taught even monkeys to tell time. Notice how I say:

Referring to the position of the steering wheel.

Just leave now. Please. You have clearly registered just to instigate a childish flame war.

Do you take me for a bloak? I know you guys are on the metric system--for the most part. I know your houses are sometimes measured in square feet and acres, and you typically discuss your height in feet and inches, but beyond that, you guys use the metric system. Pretty much like Canada.

Haha that made me laugh. You called Chris a dumbass, citing false information, which clearly proves that you are the dumbass! Haha.

Most countries in Europe drive on the right side of the road like us.
