    Because "sew" would be incorrect.

    Also, I can't stand it when people use the word irregardless. Is that even a word? Apparently it is because my spellcheck didn't try to correct it.
    No - "irregardless" is NOT a word. The word they are trying to us is "regardless". One of my all time top pet peeves...

    What I find most disturbing is during an emergency when a person is clearly in need of help and people respond by whipping out their cell phones to video it!!!

    I have actually had people argue with me that making a video is helping the person???

    Luckily no one died....but there were lots of injuries.

    Oh!....and of course the idiot who caused it all walked away unharmed!

    Excerpt from the Baltimore Sun newspaper:

    Parker said the crash, near mile marker 88.9, remains under investigation but there is "no sign" the bus driver is at fault.

    The driver of a blue, two-door Honda Civic had tried to pass the bus, which was in the middle lane, by moving into the fast lane,

    There, he lost control of the vehicle, driving off to the left then returning onto the highway, crossing all three lanes of traffic and clipping the front of the bus.

    The driver of the Honda, whose name was not released, refused medical treatment, police said.

    Parker said after completing the investigation, crash investigators will present their findings to the Harford County state's attorney's office to determine whether charges will be filed.


    I hope that every family who had a kid on that bus sues the moron for millions....and the State comes after him with lots of fines and citations.
    I imagine it had lots of decals of the drivers Instagram handle and plenty of negative camber
    I got a couple lean mean street fighting machines and a Kia

    What seems like 1 in 20 cars anymore driving at night with only daytime running lights and dash lights! The factory’s should NOT light up dash lights for DRL’s. Just plain stupid.

    For one, why? It’s light out DUH.

    Second, how is the typical non car guy/gal going to get a clue that their parking lights and taillights are in fact off when they can see where they are going and read all of their gauges? I really want to blame the idiots driving but I can see how this could happen.

    I see that ALL the time and used to wonder why so many 'idiots' would drive at night with their lights Off....until I saw their dash/gauges fully lit!
    Having a fully lit dash, with the headlights/running lights Off, is a bad idea by manufacturers.

    Now, let's discuss the ridiculous number of A-holes who drive around at night with their High beams ON....ALL THE TIME!!!

    My favorite is when you are driving thru a parking lot at night and a "parked" cars reverse lights lite up. No worries they come on auto to lite up where the driver is going to walk to?

    The best is when people jack up their vehicle so their head lights are even with your eyes and don't adjust them. Blinded by the light...

    Is anyone else sick & tired of the rash of recent knee jerk reaction commercials....?!
    Ya know....the 'Social Engineering' commercials?

    They're all the same:
    - Empowered Black Wife
    - Wimpy white husband with douchey beard
    - Ridiculous looking mix of kids with wildly varying shades and colors

    " Oh! If only the world was like this! "

    Nissan just cant seem to make a commercial with an all Black or all White or all Asian or all Indian family.
    Well, Nissan has sucked for a long time....so I guess that's to be expected.


    C'mon!!!....you are depicting .0001% of American families.

    If you can't see over the steering wheel.....

    YOU SHOULD NOT BE FRIGGIN' DRIVING ON THE ROAD!!!!
    I have a confession to make. When I drive my '97 Express Conversion van I go the speed limit or a bit under because it's so damn slow that I forget to look at the speedometer. When I drive my Marauder I never have to check since I'm always going 10 over!

    EDIT: My lord. I just realized that was posted 9 years ago. My bad lol
