    Road Rage
    This American guy has a rather interesting argument against road rage:

    He writes:

    I was riding to work yesterday when I observed a female driver cut right

    in front of a pickup truck, causing the driver to have to drive on to

    the shoulder to avoid hitting her. This evidently angered the driver

    enough that he hung his arm out his window and gave the woman the


    "Man, that guy is stupid," I thought to myself. I ALWAYS smile nicely

    and wave in a sheepish manner whenever a female does anything to me in

    traffic, and here's why:

    I drive 48 miles each way every day to work. That's 96 miles each day.

    Of these, 16 miles each way is bumper-to-bumper. Most of the

    bumper-to-bumper is on an 8 lane highway.

    There are 7 cars every 40 feet for 32 miles. That works out to be 982

    cars every mile, or 31,424 cars.

    Even though the rest of the 32 miles is not bumper-to-bumper, I figure I

    pass at least another 4000 cars.

    That brings the number to something like 36,000 cars that I pass every


    Statistically, females drive half of these. That's 18,000 women drivers!

    In any given group of females, 1 in 28 has PMS. That's 642.

    According to Cosmopolitan, 70% describe their love life as dissatisfying

    or unrewarding. That's 449.

    According to the National Institute of Health, 22% of all females have

    seriously considered suicide or homicide. That's 98.

    And 34% describe men as their biggest problem. That's 33.

    According to the National Rifle Association, 5% of all females carry

    weapons and this number is increasing.

    That means that EVERY SINGLE DAY, I drive past at least one female that

    has a lousy love life, thinks men are her biggest problem, has seriously

    considered suicide or homicide, has PMS, and is armed.

    Give her the finger? . I don't think so.

    All this time I thought the guys smiled and waved because I'm cute, now I find out it's only because of the rifles in the back window!

    Forget the joke!

    How can I get in touch with that guy?


    Maybe I can pay that guy to put a big bumper-sticker with my website ad's on his car, and get some people on those 36,000 cars to visit my site and buy something.

    LOL Gordon - funny. Maybe too true for comfort but hell, what about the horny, drug-crazed or drunk men or teen boys on the road. ;-) Either way, it's better to not be in all that traffic and work at home.
