Re: Holiday bird is not a turkey

The last time I flipped through a drivers manual, it was up to 3 seconds.

Last winter, I was doing around 25 leaving from home. The roads have 25 and 35 limits in this area, but there was still snow and ice on them. What I thought was Volvo got right on my ***. I drifted over a little to where the cinders have gathered. Cinders are tiny rock-like chips the less wealthy/cheaper townships use instead of salt and sand. A moment after getting hit with the cinders, he backed off, and I saw the Mercedes hood ornament.

Re: Holiday bird is not a turkey

I took D.E. 10 years ago (holy $*** where'd the years go...) yea, 2 seconds (some I've heard 1 sec/10 mph or maybe I thought that up?) the problem is drivers ed is a joke, USA driving tests are a joke, and parent's just sign off on the 6mo/48 hr supervised driving thing. My kids are gonna hate my guts when they're 16 (or 18 or whenever the age is by then) and love me for it 10 years later.

can't say I've lost the hood ornament they were so close but I've lost the headlights. If I'm going over the speed limit I'll usually drop down to it. If they're close but not stupidly close, I'll slow down without hitting the brakes. If they're stupidly close I tap the brake lights as a warning, then slow.
