Out of the Blue

I see dead people! No I'm not Haley Joel Osment, I'm a medic in Battlefield 2. Now here's the question... you guys who lie there critically wounded and scream medic repeatedly while still in the line of fire of the ambush that killed you... have never seen a war movie like Saving Private Ryan or Full Metal Jacket where the sniper picks off everyone who tries to help their wounded friend? What are you thinking? Sometimes I'm sure they are just trying to get a couple of medics killed due to the 'misery loves company' syndrome.

On Sunday I filled up to a full tank for $33 bucks before driving for three hours to my brother's house. On the way home I had to refill half a tank for another $23. One trip... $56 bucks. I think there's something in gas that makes it burn faster because I used to be able to fill up my tank it lasted me for 2-3 weeks. I remember one time filling up in Sacramento, California driving to San Francisco. Driving around in San Fran for two days. Heading back to Sacto and about 70% back filling up again.
