Weak coffee is worse than no coffee at all.

If you can't stand your fork in it, it's too weak.

We have one set of friends whose daughter was getting the short end of the stick in her divorce and another whose son is getting it. Both kids could have made better choices, though.

"Awesome" and "Amazing"

A few years ago, when I ordered a bacon cheeseburger, the waitress said, "Awesome." That made it have as much significance as saying OK.

Amazing had come to mean anything better than mundane, even ordinary things are called Amazing. Just meaningless.

To summarize, "Get off my lawn!"

People who drive in the rain with a) no headlights on so nobody can see them (usually in a shade-of-gray, or a dark colored, car), or b) their highbeams blazing away so you can't see anything besides spots for a mile and a half.

And a subset of group a), the idiots with DRLs who think they're covered...and then wonder why they got rear-ended. Um...because DRL's DON'T INCLUDE TAILLIGHTS, .

When will automakers take a cue from the motorcycle industry and either make DRLs equal full-output low beam lights (instead of reduced-power high beams, or sexy LED shapes), and include ALL your lights - markers, tails, everything. Like motorcycles. Turn the key on, all the lights come on.

Or get rid of them altogether like the old days and make people actually THINK when they drive.

I'd also love to see mobile network blocking antennae inside the dashboard of every single automobile produced. Or at least, those without a handsfree-capable stereo.

Point out the gross corruption of the Obama-Hil-liar-y cabal and in return get vague equivocation that both sides have corruption.

It's an alternate reality for so many. And it is truly amazing to see. Growing up I used to wonder how it was possible for a people to be duped by political parties like the Nazis and such. It's trivially easy it seems. Too many people are too trusting of news media.

It's an outgrowth of the "I saw it on the internet so it must be true" mentality.

And of our crappy "educational system".

Driving lights from the California DMV handbook:
Q: When is it legal to drive with your parking lights on?
A: NEVER! They are _parking_ lights.

But I see someone everyday driving with them.

Rain and lights: California passed a law years ago that says if it is raining enough to have your wipers on, you must turn your lights on.

Come on folks, this is a no brainer. If someone can't see you, they will make your life much more dangerous and possibly very short.

At least the regular coffee making guy is back from vacation! Strong and hot! I get to work early (7am) and he is already here finishing the first pot.

Oh, it's a law here in MD too - "lights on with wipers".

Thing is, people don't THINK. It's not even a process for most folks to think "can other people see me?" - the extent of thinking, if there IS any to begin with, is "do I need my lights so *I* can see?". If people can see the road OK, they don't turn on the lights.

I've actually had redfaced arguments from people swearing they're saving electricity by not turning on headlights in the rain/daytime. No amount of calm engineering explanation could convince them othewise.

And in the meme above...is that Castle in the pic? Triple-threat misinformation?

Use the special underwater nukes on them!

I thought lights with wipers was law everywhere. I make sure the lights are on when I'm on the bike and it's raining.

The other side of that is people who turn their flashers on when it's raining heavily. What are they trying to say? That it's raining? I can see putting them on when they are on the side of the road, but to have them on while moving along just draws the eye and prevents others from noticing other things. Annoying.

Agreed. If it's so bad that you feel the need to crawl along with your hazards on...GET OFF THE ROAD. If everyone else is doing fine at the speed limit, either keep pace, or pull off.

Or spring $20 for a new set of wiper blades, so you can see AND keep pace!

There are several triple offenders like that one.
The Malcom/Han/Spock one is my favorite.
