    This is a lesson I began to learn when I moved into the city of St. Louis!

    But Stitchy's case seems especially ridiculous.

    there was a study, in Washington state iirc, that showed red light cameras actually increased the probability of accidents. why? because people would slam on the brakes on yellows even if it was safer to just keep going. and then they'd get rear ended.

    LA had a similar study. Reduced side-on collisions, but increased rear-end collisions by twice as much.

    thats what i said! (to myself, and to the forum. i do not plan on taking this to court)


    thats just plain wrong.


    its such bullshit. they had one on the highway for "construction safety." it was up 8 months before any construction actually started.


    dont doubt it for a second.

    A girl I know told me she had been repeatedly raped/physically abused whenever she was unwilling to have sex with her ex-boyfriend. What makes it worse is that I know the guy, I see him at dinners every 4 months.

    Teaching 8 hours straight while sick.
    Also, gf thinks seeing me once or twice a week is enough while I want to see her every day.

    I feel for you! It's surprising how draining teaching can be when you're run down. Even though you're not exerting yourself very much physically, it's exhausting. Especially if you don't get a break.

    I feel for you.

    Just got my first speeding ticket EVER a couple days ago -- was going 70 in a 60 zone on the left lane and I was totally going with the flow of traffic. Problem was, I was the head of the pack so I was creating the flow of traffic for that lane :)

    Anyway, asked to take a driving safety test so it wouldn't show up on my record and I still have to pay around $120 in court fees/fines.

    LAME.

    She won't come forward, I have known her for 7 years and she just told me this. If my timing is correct it started 6 years ago and I have no idea when it stopped.

    fuck, this shit is depressing me.

    Was this a self diagnosis, or did a medical professional give you the news?

    That's rough man. At the very least she should go see a counselor or something to make sure her head's on straight.
