Attack of the mosquito robots – nano insects!

I found these beautiful (and scary) pictures of mosquito robots in Google+ on Rod Borghese’s page abzu 다운로드. I’m positive the bottom three are concept designs made in photoshop, but that first one looks awfully real…

Tailgating Is A Crime!

I live in the DC, Maryland, and Virginia area where tailgating is rampant 대학가요제 mp3 다운로드. I cannot get on a highway or even hug the slow lane anymore without someone getting up on my rear. It is so bad that everyone has stopped caring and the lead-foot is the norm 다운로드.

Which is absolutely ridiculous. Death by car is one the leading killers in America. Injuries from car accidents are in the millions each year. I once had a cop tell me that cars are killing machines and everyone has one 다운로드. He then went on to tell me the ridiculous things people do in these killing machines, like reading newspapers, shaving, putting on make-up, texting.

I grew up in California where tailgating is a crime and the community hates it 다운로드. We don’t let tailgating happen and if you do it pisses us off. We’re serious too, with regular shootings, beatings, and threats. Many Californians actually keep guns and bats in their car for this very reason 공룡메카드 25화. It is considered a battlefield out there.

I know it sounds ridiculous but at least it is honest. It keeps us all well aware of the dangers of driving jquery csv. Out here on the East Coast there is no justice. Everybody does it, nobody cares, and people pretend like it isn’t a problem.The end result is the worst drivers dominate the roads and all of us are in danger 컬투쇼 사연모음 다운로드.

I say we fight back and get angry. The tailgaters own the road. They have even taken away the concept of a “slow lane” or a “passing lane” 다운로드. At this point there is no allowance for safe driving.

Sometimes the only way to stop a bully is to stand up for yourself 다운로드.

My favorite maneuver is to just stop accelerating. Make the tailgater brake and brake until they eventually get pissed off  and go around. Sometimes I try the random unnecessary braking or I tap the brake several times 다운로드. Hell, sometimes I do all three.

A few other points. Most tailgaters seem to be lone drivers. I rarely see someone acting this stupid and dangerous with another person in the car.

For those of you who are tailgaters, stop it right now!

Follow the three second rule. Or, the car length rule (one car length for every 10 mph, so at 60 mph it’s 6 car lengths of space between you and the care in front of you). Either way, remember:
