    Random thoughts not pertaining to anything.

    1. Terrible's lakeside casino is terrible to drive past at night. The search lights are really distracting when you have no clue where they are coming from until you are right upon them, and the big colorful flashing sign is almost impossible to not stare at when you should be keeping your eyes on the road. Like a moth to a light.

    2. I have never been to southern iowa, but Southern Iowa/ N missourah has some nice looking country. I do not know where people get the notion that Iowa is flat.

    3. I do not know where people get off getting mad at you when they are the ones doing things wrong. This sorta goes along with the thread about people getting mad at the POlice when they are in fact breaking the law. This guy was tailgating the heck out of me on 71 close to kansas city to the point to where i couldnt even see his license plate. Seeing as his vehicle was way bigger than mine, there was no way he woulda stopped if we needed to in time. I break checked the **** out of him and he flipped ME off... if someone breakchecked me, I would think that I would understand why they did and that I was in the wrong.

    4. I also hate people who pass on the right. It is impossible to get in the slow lane when you are being passed on the right.

    5. I hate when people make me pass them on the right.

    6. Have you ever been watching something, got up and walked away, only to come back to something else random being on and just really gotten sucked in? That just happened to me with this Iditarod show.

    7. The Iditarod fascinates me .

    The end.

    As I sit here getting ready for bed, the fan I have going is amazingly loud, yet I sleep right through it because it does a great job drowning out any background noise that will keep me awake.

    2. I grew up in SW IA and I couldn't agree more. I love the hills of southern and western Iowa.

    4. Agreed also when taking (5.) into consideration as well. I will only follow somebody in the left lane for so long before I floor it and pass on the right. This also relates to your tailgating thing, but if I come upon somebody in the left lane who should be moving over to the right but doesn't, I love to get up on their bumper (not literally) to hopefully get their attention and let them know they need to get over. I don't stay there for long though, because I don't trust anyone else on the road. I give them the "push" message, then proceed to try the pass on the right if they don't get the picture.

    Don't drive slow in the fast lane, problem solved.

    Don't pass them on the right. Tailgate the **** out of them until they get a clue and move. If they brake-check you, flip them off.

    Pull into the left lane to make him pass on the right. As soon as he has just passed ram the front of your car hard into his left rear quarter panel, spinning him out. Classic PIT maneuver, works every time to teach tailgaters a lesson.

    After the 2nd or 3rd road trip to a Cyclone game in the Big XII, those lights just become a land mark to let you know where you are

    I've often wondered about billboards in general. They're like, hey, stop paying attention to driving for a little bit.

    Re: Random thoughts not pertaining to anything.

    1. Most businesses are clueless as to how overdone and obnoxious their signage and lighting is.

    2. There was a spot on 65/69 (or maybe it was back to only one of those) south of Indianola several miles where you come down off of a hill and you can see that your about to go into a nice windy hilly, tree covered drive. I'm not sure I ever followed the road that far but it looked interesting to me!

    3. I see where road rage happens. I was playing cat and mouse with an idiot for way too long one day because of some BS he had pulled. Its good that I dont have a gun in my car. I'd be in jail by now.

    4. I have run into several of these, "I dont have to drive in the slow lane, I like it here" idiots on 80 the past few months. They arent getting over either, even with someone lurking behind them obviously.

    5. This diet coke with lime stuff is tasty - kills the diet coke taste!

    6. Watching last nights debacle made me wonder - anyone ever dated a girl that was far and away bigger than they are?

    Re: Random thoughts not pertaining to anything.

    2 - how do you know it has nice looking country if you've never been there? Are you standing on the exact line that separates Southern Iowa and looking through binoculars. "Looks purty over there, not sure I want to go yet, though."

    Re: Random thoughts not pertaining to anything.

    6 - everyone in South Dakota drives in the left lane for some reason. The other day I just tailgated them in the left lane until they moved to the right.
