Good: Your car will be fixed.
Bad: Cars produce CO2.
Good: Your car doesn't make much.
Bad:It still all adds up.

tmt kind of sounds like tmnt which means teenage mutant ninja turtles.

Come on, sack up and ride your bike to work. What would that be, leaving at 5 or so?

i have found similar problems. once you have real paycheck, it seems like a lot more of that paycheck is gone for "real-life" associated costs than when you can roll out of bed at noon and ride your bike to school for 3 hours of work.

I think Alan had a sticker on his bike that said it best.. "I work to afford a car so I can drive to work" or something a bit more eloquent...

Yeah, bigger paycheck, more stuff to pay for.. Though I seem to enjoy doing something a bit more useful with my time than I felt grad school was.
