Gas Pump bulletin board

Pump and read

You know how when you fill your tank at a self serve station you just sit there and blankly stare at the side of the pump. There needs to be a bulletin board at each pump where you can read or leave messages or little bulletin board adds,llike "garage sell two blocks away" Trashy postings could be torn down. Something useful to look at while gassing up.

       i see that all the time its called vandalism :))   

       im just joshin ya!! good idea, but maybe there could be jokes there, too. that would be cool   

       and instead of writing stuff there could be those electric sentance things where the words move so the people at the gas station can monitor what goes on the pumps

       You could also have at least the news on or a weather radar of your local area on the pump. Something to look at.

       hmmmm... so im assuming that your agreeing on the electrical moving word thing? (geez, what is that thing called?)

       Electronic billboard. Been around for a while on some gas pumps, though apparently not widespread.

       Buff twits?   

       BP has little interactive screens on the pumps, with headlines, sports, weather etc. don't know how widespread though.

       Not wider than the pump, I would think.

       headlines etc what a great idea by BP not, most cars come with a system for spreading this information a Radio.   

       a more local bulletin board would be great. +
