Apparently its cool to shoot an unarmed kid on the street without any details being released and without the neighborhood watch captain going to jail for shooting him. SMDH

Even if it turns out the kid was tresspassing, stealing or whatever have you he still did not deserve to die needlessly.

NOT impressed with kendall, brought my car in for 15,000 mile service(which I would have had them do the last time I was there had anyone reminded me it was due), no one mentioned to me that it included an oil change. I literally changed my oil just a few days ago.

So you dropped off your car and signed a repair order without them explaining what they were going to do? and you were fine with that? thats trusting to say the least.

Uhg.. I hate that.
I had a conversation with an officer where he was more likely to pull someone who was lagging behind or speed matching him, than the person going the limit or 5-10 over in the fast lane.

My thing is that if I'm doing the speed limit or 5 over what can he do to me?

It irks me that people don't think they can pass a cop. Like theyll get pulled over for speeding if they do.

Haha, I hear ya.
When I see a slow pack on the Glenn I usually look for a patrol car or an undercover unit.
8 times out of ten the undercover is a detective who won't pull you over for doing 10 or less over, if at all unless your plain just being reckless.
Anywho, I just watch for a cruiser and sure enough.. Popo is in the mix.

Some idiot cut me off at less than half a car length between me and her POS beat up van as if I did not exist on spinard at the intersection where the wonderbread factory is. She then proceeds ahead of me down the one way street onto the minnasota and I street merger.

She is going 5 under as we get off the on ramp so I get into the far left lane (in which I will be in all the way to 7th). So she speeds up and tries to cut me off again. I honk the horn and she doesnt even bother to look to see if she has room. Again as if I am going to brake check the person behind me to let her dumb a$s in. Keep in mind we are going 30 and traffic is a little thick.

The lady behind me is freaking out because the tard in the van hears my horn and backs off only to try and cut the lady behind me off. Said idiot in the van now tries to catch up to my side again to try and attempt the same idiotic move again. I flip her off and she brake checks the person behind her to finally get in the lane behind the lady she freaked out.

Said lady who freaked out speeds up next to me flipping out and flips me off as if I somehow insulted her (probably misstook the finger I gave the other idiot as to being directed at her even though my hand was clearly pointed at the idiot in the van).

WGMG: Retarded drivers. I should honestly start using that PM link I was given to have people's licenses revoked if they dont retake their drivers test.

OMFG!!!! I had this the other morning from Eklutna to north ER, beater in the right lane cop in the left doing 63mph the.whole.time. Keeping even with each other. The aggressive east coast driver in me wanted to flick my high beams at the cop but I knew that would result in like 5 tickets.

WGMG: Traffic on W Northern Lights these past few days. Specifically, before and after the C Street intersection. People think its 3 lanes now, opposed to 4. Almost got hit by minivan driver in the center 2 lanes who couldn't make up their mind whether to keep the 3 lane trend going or not.

People who think just because I'm in a "possibly fast" car must mean I want to race them. Like the person next to me who decided to launch at a light next to me spewing gravel and what ever else into the car I was driving. Yep winner.

Sad part is I just had a customer telling me yesterday how this happened with his new STI and how it took out some lamp lenses and caused serious damage. I got lucky and the hits were light enough to not cause notable damage.

Minivans are the worst!! I've multiple old dudes in their windstar vans and old beat up Toyota pickups rally right next to me at a light or they'll speed up out of no where and deliberately cut me off.

It's okay though, they're old and their time will probably come a lot sooner than mine lol. I still think that once ppl pass a certain age, they should have to re-take the license test.

WGMG: people bitching about prices at a trendy new restaurant. When are you folk gonna learn?

You can buy a WHOLE cooked chicken at COSTCO or FRED MEYERS for less than the price difference you are complaining about.

I knew BWW's prices were going to be Alaskanized.

After this week they are doing their specials just like the Lower 48 does.
