"Set Phasers On Kill, Mr. Sulu"

Mr. Outer Life calls it "power weaving." I call it "lane surfing." Either way, if he brings that kind of roadway hotdogging round these parts, I will blast him out of the stars.

That is all.

We have a name for them, hereabouts.
"Dead idiot"

Saw one such fool park himself underneath a flatbed truck the other night. Took a few seconds...(And some largish truck wheels running over his areodynamic rear wing... is there where the blue stripes come from? Cold truck tires?) for him to understand it wasn't a tunnel he was driving through.

Likely, it was the last thought he had.

What's worse is it's not just htemselves they're subjecting to risk. What about the rest of us?

Blithering idiots.

Cool it: OuterLife's notes on the subject refer to those who see driving as an *undercover* sport -- those who do not do dramatic things on the road, those who do not draw attention to themselves ... those who do it safely and courteously.

It drives us power weavers crazy to find lanes blocked by people who only feel safe driving 58 in the #1 lane, and who thus merge onto the highway and almost hit 5 others on their quest to blithely cross 4 lanes just in order to block the fast lane. These are the ones you ought to malign.

Us -- you'll never notice. As OL mentions -- we don't tailgate or flash our brights or honk. We resign ourselves to blockages that are caused by the volume of traffic and not the cluelessness of the "drivers" in it. We work the traffic without taking on karmic baggage by increasing the risk of driving to ourselves or others.

There are plenty of idiots on the road, and we is not them.

Hmmm . . . how to say this politely.

He looks like a crazy old sonofabitch.

Sorry. Didn't turn out polite, after all.
