    I don't worry about myself driving it is all the other morons on the road.
    It has everything to do with the person driving. It's called self control.

    There was an article in local paper a few years back about 3 guys aged between 75 and 79 who are competitive powerlifters each squatting in the 350 pound range and bench pressing in 200 pound range. All were in good shape - and not qualifed as "in good shape for their age."

    I was a competitive powerlifter in my younger days but stopped lifting heavy after tearing my meniscus. After seeing that I decided I wanted to be those guys when I grow up and went back to powerlifting. I just turned 54.

    Telling an idiot that he or she is an idiot is a fool's errand.


    They know what they are but they don't want to hear about it from others.

    They're living in delusion.

    relax people,leave early,drive safe ....and enjoy the drive.
    it makes no sense in the world to get angry while driving.
    This is the thing. There's probably not one thing done to a road-ranger that he hasn't accidentally done to someone himself.


    Thank you, Quazi!

    I believe that you have hit the nail on the head.

    Some people will never admit that it's even remotely possible that they could be even a little bit wrong.

    A big part of it is testosterone induced.

    It's called DUIT, driving under the influence of testosterone.
