Or one of those drivers slides onto the pavement your using
Yeah. There seems to be a handful of sensible road users (such as yourself) who can adjust their driving for the conditions; but others just seem to completely ignore it and think about only themselves. And then wonder why they skid sideways into a lorry/lamppost/wall...
Thankfully I walk to work. The worst that can happen is the bottom of my trousers get wet from all the slush...
I am not too bothered by the snow ... I am happy to drive in it even though I am in a SMART which weighs 3.4 oz and it did a good job of sliding about yesterday.
My problem is that although I drop my speed by 25% min and increase my stopping distance by at least a factor of 5 ... other idiots (the aforementioned teachers in 4x4s perhaps and definitely the ed sales reps speeding up and down the country trying to find a BSF LA to pitch too) ... the simply don't.
My wife was sorry to hear this morning that the local school (walking distance) is closed but her one isn't ... even though her school isn't on a gritted road, has mobiles that get flippin' cold and has students that put stones in snowballs to try and do the most damage.
Neither do I
hey, if you don't like iPods so much you could always, you know, if you think about it - and really put the hours in..
..not use one
An interesting rumour. I certainly wouldn't put it passed them SYNACK
Ah but have you heard the new rumors floating about, that Steve is looking to classify all music as uncool in 2010 banning it from iPods completly and replacing it with a selection of Apple branded 'motivational material' the effects are said to be so strong that you will 'leak' said material out to others around you uncontrollably. The material is also said to be that potent that earphones and even the new flake earphones will be unable to channel it sufficiently. Helpfully this new device will be implanted in the brain stem negating the need for headphones. This will also allow the device to leach un-needed energy from its hosts brain in order to provide the customer with uninterrupted access to Apples extensive library of 'persuasive content'.
Flamebait anyone??? I hear it's in season
