People suck, Power supplies suck!

Ok, quick rant......god debit.....

Driving home today, some a$$hat pulls out in front of me and proceeds to drive 12 UNDER THE SPEED LIMIT!!!! This went on for about 2 miles. I have GPS in my TJ so I know this wasn't just me being delusional or my speedo happening to be off. So naturally this is really pissing me off and i'm riding his arse to give him the clue to either speed up or get the hell over. So he slams on the brakes, pulls over, and waves me by violently out of his window. I proceed to go around him only to see him screaming. I held up my hand and signaled to him 4-5 (held up 4 fingers, then 5). The speed limit was 45 and this $h!thead was doing 33. Just out of curiousity, what the heck would you have done??



Second crappy thing from today....
I installed a 320gig HDD in my computer as my third/storage HDD. I fire up the PC and hear a couple "clicking sounds". I thought it was weird and hit the power button again and all of the sudden smoke comes billowing out of my PSU. DAMMIT!

I would say thanks captain obvious but I got a good laugh out of that. Thanks, I really did need that. Pretty annoying though, It was a 520W Raidmax PSU with tested steady rails.

I wouldn't tailgate, that just causes problems. Yeah, the person that cut you off is an idiot but that doesn't mean that you have act like one also. Where were you going that a couple extra minutes means so much?

Tailgaters suck .

I would have reminded myself how little time difference 33 vs 45 mph would make over the course of a mile or two I was behind the guy. Or how if we caught a red light, how it wouldn't make any difference, we'd all be at the same place at the same time again. It's all in our heads. This constant rushing around. Its getting out of hand. Its like how people tailgate the people in front of them at a red light. Like that extra foot closer is going to get you home earlier. I saw a fender bender today in bumper to bumper traffic. The lady just had to ride the guys bumper, even though the traffic was moving 1 mph for the last 2 miles, and there were 1000 cars ahead of him. Chill out and relax, you'll live longer.

No Dice......it's the principle.....

Some people, like the ones who drive 12 under and literally cause a driving hazard, need a clue. If idiots like that drive around clueless, they will continue to do it. Had he just pulled over acknowledging he was driving slow and waved me by calmly, everything would have been fine. As far as i'm concerned, he has no ground to get pissed at me.

"I'll get there when I get there." is what I always say. I spent the best years of my life rushing around in a hurry trying get ahead in the world. Now I'm older and wiser and realize being in a hurry will only get you one place faster....the cemetery. I drive country roads to work everyday and I get behind 10 mph tractors and old farm trucks . I just sit back and enjoy the ride. I'll sometimes take a picture of what's causing me to be late for work so they know I'm not full of sh#t. Yes sometimes driving too slow is a hazard, but what are you gonna do. Riding their a$$ won't solve anything. It just makes them and you angry and when you're angry you usually do something stupid and become a hazard on the road yourself. I'm probably the guy everybody hates because I never go over the speed limit....usually I'm about 5 mph under.
