Getting Tanked
A Strange Tripper reports that he has just acquired one of these lawn-mowing machines. Understandably, he was somewhat distressed to find that, while the mower has a 9-gallon fuel capacity, there is only room for one 12-oz cold beverage for the operator. The reasonable solution suggested itself immediately (and I can't believe the manufacturer didn't think of it!): Dedicate one of the two tanks to beverage use. You've seen those long plastic straws; or perhaps an on-demand low-pressure pumping system could be arranged. Or IV? I just want to see which tank empties itself first....
