We've all done this. Every single one of us. We don't like someone and, since we don't like them, everyone else must not like them too. We have all used this, tried to convince everyone that a particular person was evil, wrong, or just to be hated.
We've all done this, when we were twelve.
Perry is still doing it every damn day. Look how many hate me just because he says so.
Did you ever stop to think it might be simply because you are an asshole?
Shocked, shocked I tell you. I personally always believe what people tell me. Yeah right.
I live on the west coast of Michigan. We can have a clear sunny day and the wind will blow a cloud of lake effect snow across the land and in a matter of yards you can go to almost zero viability. Enter into that going 55 MPH and decide if you want to brake hard and have someone hit you from the back or keep going and hit someone in front of you.
I lived on the South shore of Lake Erie for 32 years I have heard that excuse over and over again. It is an infrequent occurrence and a bullshit excuse. I have never, ever seen whiteout conditions suddenly spring up on a clear, sunny day. If it was true and was the only cause of wintertime accidents the accident rate would plummet. Also, it goes absolutely nowhere in explaining the vast amount of accidents that occur in relatively benign weather conditions. I believe the reasons I cited in my post above explain the cause f most motor vehicle accidents. I have been driving for more than 45 years in many different countries and weather conditions. One time, years ago, I slid of an icy road while going about 20 mph, hit a small signpost and dented a fender. That is the only accident I have ever had. Somehow, I don't think my driving record is an accident.
driving a friend to Denver Airport back in Nov week before thanksgiving... going uphill eastbound on I70 witnessed a car carrier semi lose it going downhill westbound. There was already about a 20-30 car pileup near the bottom of Floyd Hill. the semi plowed into this mess. there were fatalities. I'm continually amazed at the bravadostupidity of some drivers out here....
Sorry Ed, the west shore of Lk Mich. does have that happen and it looks like a fog bank coming through. Not saying you should not slow down, but it can really change that fast.
