last week was a particularly car intensive week and i only walked 24km which is the lowest since i started recording my walking distances every day on the 2nd February 2004. Since then i’ve walked 15,460,260km.
anyway, i don’t like filling my car up with petrol as it’s a waste of time. my car has one of those displays that tells you how far you’ve got left petrol-wise. mine said i had 50 miles to go on monday morning and seeing as my commute was less than 30 miles, and there was a petrol station near my office, i thought i’d be ok. but i hadn’t allowed for the fact that the display may lie.
so as i drove my 30 miles, the distance to empty meter dropped quicker and quicker, and when i got to the petrol station i only had 6 miles to go. i then spent over 50 of our earth pounds filling it back up again.
how exciting was that story ? funkypancake is getting more like a regular blog, and for that i can only apologise.
it was a bit there when i saw it. it’s at Loughareerma and has a reason for its strange appearance and disappearance. see here for details.
