A Note From Your Favorite Creepy Econ Stalker, License Plate Edition…

I usually limit my stalking behavior to taking pictures of other people’s dogs, but I couldn’t help the following:

As I mentioned before, I now want a photo of a “MACRO” license plate on a Hummer or something. If you can make this happen, you know where to find me. I might even send you the following to put on the car:

(That item is one of a kind, but you can find a similar one here.) I figured Greg Mankiw might have been able to help me out on this, but he apparently had a slightly different idea:

Maybe MACRO was taken. (I’m still upset that WIDGET is taken in Massachusetts.) At least I got a coffee mug out of the deal:

Yup, we’re all nerds. And apparently I have a habit that I was unaware of until now:

I don’t even know why that one was interesting, other than the fact that it was parked outside of a, well, school. This one’s totally better:

Or this: (note that it’s on a Mini)

This is almost making me want to reopen the vanity plate brainstorming discussion.

    I still don’t get the last one; I didn’t notice that the second to last was a Mercedes Benz until I started looking at your twitpics.

    SZMTRZ = Size Matters. I’m impressed you’ve found so many in MA. This may be just because I lived there for the majority of my life, but I swear NH has more vanity plates per capita than any other state in the union (yep, I had one too: May-Day). Perhaps your MACRO can be found up there, since the MICRO- one was there too?

    I have to admit that I really wanted the MICRO plate to be on one of the stereotypical “I’m compensating for something” sports cars.

    I needed to put you this little remark to finally thank you so much again with the superb concepts you have shown above. This has been certainly seriously open-handed with people like you to give extensively just what some people would’ve offered for an ebook to generate some dough on their own, most importantly now that you could have tried it in case you wanted. These tips likewise worked as a good way to recognize that the rest have similar desire like my own to figure out a little more with regard to this matter. I am certain there are millions of more pleasant periods in the future for those who scan your website.

    In the above process no pain is involved, for the absence
    of the mental seed-atom prevents any sensation to be
    noted in the consciousness. I was amazed at the results
    I got and we laughed so much with each other as
    we tried it. The acai berries must be loaded into baskets and onto boats soon after picking.
    Doesn’t recommend long (more than 4-6 ) initially without good
    mind. They designed a lot of shorter pictures that it’s one, however nearly all that listed flick models connected with phase techniques who magicians would need as a way to do.
