Will do.. but the question is will you understand? It seems that
you're challenged by a simple English phrase and struggling to come to
terms with it. But then again, I'm discussing complicated issues with
a small mind. Accordingly, my expectation shoul've been much lower.
Let me let you go back to discussing your Ford and domestic issues.
They were, at the very least, entertaining.

Hey, we agree. You are using a small mind (yours of course)!

What car can't go "too fast?" Would the world be safer if he was driving a
Excursion? Or maybe I should stick him in a Scion tC - oh wait, those go
fast, are small, and have one of the worst injury loss ratings of any car
sold in the US.

On the other hand, it seems to me that some Toyota owners are awfully
defensive. Maybe thay feel the need to inflate the "goodness" of Toyotas as
a way of excusing themselves for over paying for average cars (annd in some
cases clearly worse than average cars).

Of course not. But I hate to see people screw themselves.
