Can they drive and chew gum?

Have you noticed how many people have no idea where the front of their car is?

These are the folks at McDonald's who order but then only pull a half car-length forward because they have no clue how close they are to the car ahead.

They are also the folks who turn a left-turn lane meant for ten cars into a left-turn lane that only holds six or seven cars.

They'll be right up your tailpipe when your doing 80 on the freeway but then hover a car-length behind you at the signal at the end of the exit ramp.

I see nothing wrong with kids wearing Heelys inside grocery stores and Wal*Mart long as we get to beat their parents senseless with zucchini!

The odometer in my car read "123456" last week...

...on the way to McDonald's of course.

I only buy a new car every 10 years or so, so I went looking. Amazing what new technology cars have acquired in the last decade!

Some cars with heated seats also come with cooled seats. I wouldn't want it, but it's a great option for people whose cars sit on hot parking lots all day in the summer.

I also don't understand how the windshields on some new cars knows when its raining, and how fast the wipers should go. If you know, please don't tell me -- I prefer to believe that it's voodoo.

The new Lexus sedan cames with reclining, vibrating back seats. For 100K it should probably come with a masseuse but that a fantasy for another day. The Lexus also parallel-parks itself. Personally, I haven't parallel parked since my driving test (and that consisted of saying "Whoa horsey!").

I'll let you know what I buy -- but nothing until my lawsuit against the Lake Board is resolved.

Reports of my death are somewaht exaggerated


I'm fine.

I've just been very busy.

I'm only home one or two days a week, and I seem to spend most of that time cutting grass.

I also hate new blogger, the way it does comments, and the way it loads page hits with Google searches.

Things will calm down soon, and I might move It's Jim to a social network.

Meanwhile, has the outcome of any sporting event in the history of the world ever been affected in any way by 40,000 people all yelling "Charge!" at the same time?
