1. How much exercise have you gotten this week so far?

2. Do you get your father and/or the father of your child/ren something for Father's Day?

3. If you were given $10,000 today, what would you do with it?

How very shortsighted of you.

Can Muggles use floo powder? That might explain it.

Not anymore. Muggles' green bean fell off when the microwave exploded last November, don't you remember? But if you flash a blacklight onto the cement blocks, you'll likely spot the mites that live off the dust that compiles from the hippo's eyelids. Plus, bleach. It seems there is a romantic trashcan elevator, afterall.

Who, specifically, drives an hour and a half, one way, for "conveniences"?

Many people travel that far for work. My point is that I have many conveniences quite close. I know many others don't and do have to travel. Maybe not THAT far but maybe into the next town or 2. 

Your car is used, it was given to you for free, so how could we possibly tell if your mileage on it in the past 2 years is low or high? 

2 years?

For all we know when you got it, it had 25K miles on it when you got it for free, and you've just driven the thing into the ground in the past 2 years.

2 years? And no, the car is very well taken care of.

Except I didn't ask who drives that far for work. I asked you specifically who on this LIST drives that far for conveniences. Who drives that far for conveniences, not work.

"the next town or two" is meaningless as a form of measuring distance.  When I lived in the condo,it was addressed to one town. I routinely drove to "the next town over" for groceries and other stores, but not a single one of those stores was further away than 2 miles from my house.  Lack of sidewalks and crossing a major highway were the barriers to easy walk-ability. But now that I live in another town, my shopping is no further away, it's simply in the same town and I don't have to cross a major commuter route if I want to walk there.  My walkability remains the same, but now, suddenly per your ridiculous "definition" they're closer?

2 years.  Maybe 3 if you're really stretching the definition AND if you actually expect anyone to believe you had a free car for a year before you spent thread after thread bragging about it. But otherwise?  2 years.  I know because you started in with creating threads just so you could brag about your Highlander seating 8 at around the same time I was researching my crossover and I bought it in the fall of 2011.  In fact it was all your incessant misrepresentation of the highlander that led me to look into them closer and then dismiss them as a good option.  So yeah.  2 years.

Don't think you were on the original conversation

Nope, it all depends on where you live. Many people live very far away from stores.

Except of course she didn't mention work and the majority of mentioned that our conveniences were within a 10 mile radius, so whomever you are talking about isn't in this discussion, therefore irrelevant.  The next town or 2 is meaningless without distances.  I can travel through 3-5 towns (depending on direction) in a 10 mile radius.

I don't recall a single person in this thread stating that they live very far away from stores, please quote.

When I lived in Virginia Beach, I could walk 40 feet down my sidewalk and be in "the next town over". The dividing line between VB and Chesapeake ran right through my neighborhood.
