Default Did you put the hammer down today?

A lot of idiots in my locale. I'm driving along and some dumdum pulls out of a driveway just a second before I'd be there. Suby drivers, I tell ya.

Fighter pilot mode, whip in opposing lane hammer down, back in proper lane.

Default Re: Did you put the hammer down today?

I hate when people do that. All in a rush to get on the road with no gumption to get to their destination. Especially when they skip the stop sign at this one popular intersection. I tend to ride their bumper for a while when they do that, I don't mind someone being in a hurry to be in front of me...but I expect the same hurry once you get there!

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

We must be close relatives, Saturn wise. One up on you with the same scenario but with a Tesla pulling out from an apartment building open air parking lot driveway with either me hitting him or him T-boning me. I caught the idiot looking right, not left as he continued pulling out into the street as I came up on his left, laying on the horn for a quite a few seconds. Looking into my rear view mirror, I saw him sheepishly reverse direction, perhaps contemplating his Teslaness a little bruised from the impromptu encounter with reality driving. I think his oneness with his Tesla was shattered. A Model-S without cameras to review this transgression. Vehicles on the street blocking a clear view from hidden driveways poses a loss of sightlines to make decisions difficult. I like Teslas by the way, not thoughtless drivers.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Default Re: Did you put the hammer down today?

I was wondering if one could rig up a system that feeds a fine mist of windshield fluid into the intake when RPMs are above say 4000. That would only be for relatively short bursts. What could possibly go wrong.

I'll check red green for tips.

You'll go hammer down once you leave a screening of Ford v. Ferrari!

Quick tip though, *mild SL2-sized spoiler* there is a quote that bookends the movie, as follows:

ďThereís a point at 7,000 RPMs where everything fades. The machine becomes weightless. It disappears. All thatís left, a body moving through space, and time. At 7,000 RPM, thatís where you meet it. Thatís where it waits for you.Ē

DO NOT TRY TO FOLLOW THIS ADVICE WITH YOUR SATURN!!! YOU WILL LITTER THE ROAD WITH ENGINE PARTS!

I REPEAT, DO NOT ATTEMPT THIS WITH YOUR S-SERIES SATURN!!!

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
