    The situation will NEVER BE THE WAY YOU WANT, it WILL BE THE WAY IT IS. You must be FLEXIBLE ENOUGH TO ADAPT and just "DEAL WITH IT".

    +1....77%!! This is kinda funny with what happened to me over Thanksgiving...well, not really funny at all actually. The wife and I visited the in-laws in Winston-Salem for Thanksgiving. Well, right when we got into the city limits we were passing a semi and some guy in a truck comes flying up behind us probably going 95 - 100mph. We were going about 75 and he got to us fast. Anyway, we just kept our constant speed because we were passing the semi in a reasonable amount of time. Well he starts flashing us and honking and swerving behind us. By this time we're passed the semi and we get over in the slow lane to let this guy by. Well he just rides beside us with his front bumper just at our back wheel. I think he was just trying to not let us pass(get back at us?) when we came up on another string of slow moving traffic. My wife is driving and when we do come up on the slow traffic she speeds up a little and gets back in front of him. This time he doesn't do anything but ride behind us. When we get passed the last slow car we get over again to let him go by. Well, as he passes(slowly, mind you), he starts waving a gun in the air showing it to us through his window. My wife hits the brakes and I immediately go for my HS2000 that's down on the floor board of the car. Well, I guess he saw me reach or just thought about what an idiot he was, and took off again and got off a few exits down. We were able to catch the first 3 of his plates before he got to far away and called the cops. Dispatcher said a unit would check it out. My juice was flowing at this point. It just reminded me to always be in yellow and be prepared for a situation to go from nothing to bad in just a minute or two. Maybe I should change my vote?

    done.

    i found it funny that the poll stated that it can't be interpreted as public opinion. i know it's not a triple blind, ultra-scientific poll, but if it doesn't represent anything at all, why bother? i also wonder if that was added after we started winning.
    War is not the ugliest of things. Worse is the decayed state of moral feeling which thinks nothing is worth a war. A man who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which he cares for more than his personal safety, is a miserable creature who has no chance of being free. -J.S. Mill
