     Kommentar till en text av Ardith Hinton
Ärende: Food & Drugs...  1B.
============================
On or about: 11-06-06  09:21, Ardith Hinton did engage James Bradley regarding,
but not limited to: Food & Drugs...  1B.

Ya "Sigh". Now, there's always a slow reverse - as long as you're piloting a
pair of shoes - that only serves to bump into a moving target who is someone
looking at the top row of a shelf in a grocery store. I mean, we *don't* have
eyes on the back of our head, after all.

Funny, but just days ago, I saw someone else do the same forced merge manoeuver
into the same lane of traffic, and thinking about it, it was about the same
time of day. I was in the middle lane, *long* before the merge, and I only
caught the turmoil out of my periphery vision, but my neck twist, noticed a
Camero/Transam next to me, and a very faded hood of a sub-sub-compact trying to
nose in. I am pretty sure, that hood covers a four cylinder or less engine.

 AH> installing a 'roo bar on the Hillman....  ;-)
 
LOL! I've thought of that myself on my sub-sub-compact. Even though it *is* the
4WD in my stable, a 'brush' guard has never been needed for its intended
purpose to date. The car is so lite, I'd likely have to put the same weight -
or more - on the rear.
 
 AH> I note with interest, and a certain amount of cynicism, that
 AH> the  sort of people who cut off a Subaru don't usually try 
 AH> playing chicken with a logging truck or a concrete pumper 
 AH> or anything else which is much bigger & heavier than

Funny how that happens, eh? <L> I get plenty of respect in my '81 F-150. Hell,
if they pulled off a 1/4 panel in that rust-bucket, they'd be doing me a
favour.

 AH> the Hillman, I have to conclude that they realize on some 
 AH> level what is going on around them but don't feel the risk 
 AH> of collision matters unless they'd obviously get the worst 
 AH> of it. I'm reminded of the schoolyard bully who deep down 
 AH> is a coward.  If he believes might makes right... okay, the 
 AH> truck driver can communicate with him on his own level!  
 AH> I'd probably be inclined to cheer for the truck driver too. 
 AH> It is just possible one needs something larger than life 
 AH> to drive the lesson home....  :-)
 
That would be funny, if it wasn't so hilarious. Pathetic, that that might be
another reason for larger than required vehicles on the road. Did little bully
grow up, and only desire bigger implements, or did the picked on kid, find new
liberation by finding a "big stick"?

 AH> Well... I might use my horn to let somebody else know I was
 AH> there,  if I thought they didn't already know, but what if they 
 AH> don't *care*??  Unless you get some satisfaction out of

 AH> best to be thankful you're okay & trust that the universe 
 AH> will reckon with them one way or another.  I saw a 

I went one better. I bought rubber "8 ball" danglie things for my rear view
mirrors. I can chuck it at my window, in the general direction of the offending
target. The only time I *do* use the horn, is when I see an idiot about to kill
themself, or threaten another. I just seem to be using it more often. Either
I'm getting grumpier, or the mobile populous isn't using their noggins en-mass.

Ya, the next time the world goes around, they will likely be in the next
rollover accident, but if I can wake them up when they are driving to prevent
that... It's *my* tax dollars that will be used to pluck them and their car out
of the river!

Now, I'm sure everyone has had their share of 'Homer moments', in a pilots
chair, or otherwise, but we sharpen knives by graduating softer scrapes, why
can't us humans learn the same way? If you're exhibiting a dull behaviour,
you're going to be scraped by a coarse force. If you start to take the edge,
the next scrape should be more gentle. You behave yourself, and the car gets a
fresh coat of paint every ten years, akin to a knife meeting a honing once a
use. Maybe, some never realize the need to wake up, before they turn the key?
I'm sure, there would be an element of drivers that would scoff at their own
behaviours, if they could remove themselfs from their own dangerous situations.

 AH> beautiful example in my rear view mirror when I was driving
 AH> to work some time ago.  A car was barrelling along in a bus 
 AH> lane, where it had no right to be... then another pulled 
 AH> out into the same lane.  The collision was spectacular.  So 
 AH> the drivers felt they were too important to wait in line 
 AH> like the rest of us?  I'll bet we got to our destination 
 AH> first....  :-)

You just don't get it. Driver A was mad at driver B for getting in front of him
while he was making good time, and driver B was mad at driver A for making good
time, where he had no right to. Follow it now? It's all logical, to them. <L>
If either driver didn't exist, at that point in time, the other would have made
*great* time. What they plan to do with that time, is likely a mystery to all
involved, but that's not the point.
 
 
 JB>  "Aw... Mom. Why can't I go out and play?" <-|[


 AH> Okay.  You do seem to know about the side effects 
 AH> of the stuff you're taking, and you did say you'd discuss 
 AH> various things with your doctor....  :-))
 
"You mean, 'I've been a good boy, right?'" <ROTF>

I'm so far behind on my planning for this year. My garden hoses are still full
of water (in the form of ice now). I have two air compressors still outside,
(They don't like to be frozen apparently.) and financially (I think I covered
this part) I was planning to move some items back out to auction by now,
instead of paying for 50' of new fence.

Today, I just woke up from another twelve hour nap. I missed a few chores I had
scheduled for today, but what the hey. Why do today, what you *can* put off for
tomorrow? I just really missed making it out to a Remembrance celebration.
 
 AH> Makes sense to me!  You may be more inclined to accept
 AH> physical  risks than I am... but you don't need to lose a few 
 AH> confrontations with semi-trailers to understand that the 
 AH> rules of the road are there for a reason and/or that you 
 AH> probably can't drink coffee, read the paper, and chat on 
 AH> the phone while you're driving.  Having some SP tendencies 

Even when I had a cell, I'd always pull over to talk on it. Now, if I was in an
automatic, at speed for some stretch, or in a low threat situation, (Maybe,
driving across an empty parking lot. <?>) I may have a short, hands-free
conversation. I would never try to slurp some coffee at the same time, or read
a map. I think I have a 'good head on my shoulders' for multi-tasking, and as
such, I know not to task it. At the same time, I get very nervous around
another that is putting on lipstick using their rearview as they pull into
traffic, with a phone propped up on their shoulder. When their rearview mirror
- viewed from the 'rear view' - shows nothing but side window, I give them
*lots* of distance, and one hand reaches for the horn out of instinct, just to
make sure it's still where I left it.

Again, I haven't been *totally* aware *all* the time in any given situation,
but I have 'woken' myself up a few times, and had the wherewithall to pull over
for a nap, or fill up early for gas, and take a solid stretch-meditation. I'm
reminded of the comedian, that bragged in his routine how he would close his
left eye, and press his face against the window when someone would pass him on
the left side. If they didn't honk, he'd weave a bit into their lane, and maybe
wake *them* up a bit.

 AH> doesn't make you an SP.  It's just that, of the four major

Just yesterday, I looked at my scratch notes on this business. I know they are
sparse, but I don't recall your opinion about their accuracy. Let me try that
again: <EG>

(Opps... THese weren't my complete notes, but they may be it's all I have to
work from.)

"P" Perception: -Reserves judgement
                -Remains flexible post-preconception,
                and after initial judgement.
"S" Sensation:  -Tactile motivated learning
                (See one, do one, teach one... Friendly.)
"N" Intuitive:  -"Realizes majority of iceburge is submerged"
                (Noted, hard to describe?)
"J" Judgement:  -Rote memory more comfortable than a freelance approach.
                (Experimental physics may be harder than social studies.)
                -Structured environment/quarters (IE: Conservatory)


 AH> reasoning styles, I'm least likely to use the SP... and now
 AH> that I understand the theory I can put things in a nutshell 
 AH> that way.  WRT the folks who cut you off & suchlike, I know 
 AH> people of various temperaments who have been involved in 
 AH> accidents because their mind was somewhere else at the 
 AH> time.  And I imagine the guy on BRITAIN'S WORST DRIVERS who 
 AH> treated us to a commentary about what other drivers should 
 AH> do was probably an SJ.  I wouldn't blame the SP's who think 
 AH> they're Jackie Stewart for all the foolishness I see on the 
 AH> road....  :-)

I can say, that British commentator - if it was the same show I saw - was too
enthusiastically peeved at someone passing on their Left 'slow' lane. Cripes,
if passing on our Right 'slow' lane was enforced, I doubt our thoroughfares
would move much at all. So, I think culturally, his comfort zone, was
ridiculing the rustabout passing, where we can more easily condemn the slowpoke
in the fast lane.
