As for the first question I don't think we wanna know...

I don't think there's logic involved, just makes him feel better...

Well, when people drive around with their phone stuck in their ear, or otherwise not paying attention, and they pull out in front of you or someone else, or drive erratically, it's the same damn thing.

A multi thousand pound moving piece of steel is every bit as dangerous as a fully automatic machine gun.

And just like a gun, it requires the operator pay close attention to their actions and respect the lethality of their vehicle just as gun owners respect the lethality of their firearms.

So when someone pulls out in front of me, or cuts me off, they may as well have just had a negligent discharge in my direction. THAT is why I get murderous mad.
Trip, move to the country.... One hour in a city, or even close to one, and I'm ready to pull down on someone. Seriously, there's a lot to be said for tooling along a country road with no one coming, and no one in the rear view. Gives you a whole new perspective and at least as far as I'm concerned, a mellow and easy going outlook on life.

Would it not make any of you angry if some careless ******* negligently fired off a shot at you while at the range?

So why is it a mystery when I get totally pissed when someone pulls out in front of me?

I never said it solves anything. And no, really it makes me feel foolish to get so angry, not better.

It's a simple explanation of a natural response (for me) to a deadly threat. I tend to get mad when people put mine and my son's lives in danger because THEY aren't paying attention to what they're doing.

Watched the new movie MOMA , it WILL mess you up but its kinda sad .

We have several horseshoe crab shells down at the beach house , 1st we found was bout 10yrs ago and that joker still stinks to high heaven . Stinkrays or skates what ever you want to call them are a pest at our beach but they pull like hell when you hook one , you can fight a 2-3lb'er for an hour just to have him whip the chit out of your leg when you land him

After driving a semi otr you come to expect stupidity. Nothing I can do is going to change that. So I have changed my attitude. I used to get upset like you trip. Now I usually see it coming by keeping a look in mirrors and anticipation of the stupidity about to happen. Think about it Trip. Most times you feel "the rage" is because you're surprised by their actions.

Just shake your head and say, "they must be in a hurry". Let it go.

Those that anger you, control you. If not but for a minute.

Drive a motorcycle and you will really see stupidness . I have had to knock around a few side view mirrors '' illegal btw '' and sometimes they even have the balls to cuss at me .
Last time I pinched a hole in my seat I had it pinned out around 115mph and this guy started to pull out of his driveway , got 1/4 out in the rd and saw me .
My fault too but dang , i would have been a greasy spot on that one .
One good thing about short open pipes is you can let the bike voices it opinion too

That's one thing that worries the hell out of me. My Mom rides a bike.

I just recently totaled my HHR SS and replaced it with a 69 impala 4 door... It voices its opinion too. Gotta love Magnaflow pre axle dumps...
