The list of things I resent grows ever longer by the day it seems. The latest is the idiotic, mandatory, no-spill, safety gas-can nozzle.
After being lobbied heavily, where bribes almost certainly played a role, by the Portable Fuel Container Manufacturers Association, compassionate conservative George W. Bush ordered that OSHA mandate these stupid no-spill and no venting gas cans be the only gas cans sold. Quite an economic windfall for the container makers, wouldn't you say?
These stupid things barely work, if they work at all, and I usually end up taking the whole nozzle off and pouring the gas with a funnel into the motor.
Regular reader Kevin says he usually just fills up empty 1gal milk cartons while giving the finger to the alarmed gas station attendant, since that's been added to the list of things made illegal for the benefit of political donors.
