    Is pie heaven anything like the land of chocolate?

    Re: Random Thoughts Thread #1

    Why do people with convertibles drive around with the tops down, the front windows down, but the rear windows up?

    Hey dude/chick, it looks stupid!

    Are these the same people who plaster their back license plates with each year's renewal sticker bordering the numbers?


    No matter what, I could NEVER cheer for Dirt and Urine.

Not here, for some reason those same people that were running 60 now decide this is a good time to slow down to 50. Some of them don't even make a lane choice for a quarter mile and just kinda float down the middle. IT'S MADDENING!! I have more road rage in that 2 mile stretch than anywhere else I drive.


    That rug really tied the room together, did it not dude?

    Re: Random Thoughts Thread #1

    I watched a good road rage incident the other day. There's this odd spot on my commute where a four lane goes back to two lane. The odd part is that the signs (and road) tell you to merge to the right. So you always get people in the left lane trying to race past you, not paying attention that it's THEIR side of the road is going to end. So this happened last week. The car in the left kept trying to pass the car on the right, and the one on the right stayed put since they were following the road signs. Car on the left refused to slow down and pull in behind. Damn near ran into the ditch because they refused to get over. So at the next stop light, the right car is behind me, and the left car gets into the turn lane, pulls up beside right car, honks, gives him an extended 1 finger salute, then roars off.

    *******, they were the ones in the wrong!

    Re: Random Thoughts Thread #1

    After being in TX for 8 months, I figured the large amount of drivers/cars down here would increase people's driving ability since you have a little more to deal with. Complete opposite.

    After yesterday's thread, I have been thinking about what I want for dinner tonight. I have officially decided on Freebirds Burrito over Chipotle.

    They deserved it if they kept speeding up to block the car on the left.

    Speaking of traffic, I'm gonna go out on a limb here. I don't think LA traffic is that bad.

    plenty of space behind to pull in. They didn't try to pass the car on the right until the signs started for the merge.

    Why do leg cramps happen in the middle of the night? I woke up at 1am and my left calf locked up. My calf still aches.


    They say country music speaks to the heart. Unfortunately, it has to go through your ears to get there.

    This used to happen to my brother when he would have growth spurts. Supposedly, potassium helps? I will sometimes get a really bad cramp in the arch of my foot at night - if I move my foot just right. Nothing like waking up to your foot throbbing at 2am.
