You could always throw in a concussion grenade to announce your presence..

BTW, welcome to the forum.

Thanks for the welcome and I try to be a bit more subtle with the friends I value! :-X

Interesting that you would mention concussion grenade.......a long time ago some machinist friends were involved in  R&D on a "flash bang" device. They still have some inert samples.......to show their CNC machining work.

Unrelated to the immediately preceding discussion, but....
Crude oil is down more than 50% since June 2014, ditto for gasoline.
But MC oils and airfare, not so much. I'm pissed....... :censored:

Cement trucks that drop little cow pies in the middle of the road to become a rough unplanned speed bump make me crazy and annoyed...

There's at least 3 of them near me. I hit 2 of them at 40. Now I know where they are and am more alert to them. But would like DOT to scrape them off and charge the company that did it if they can find them. They are all near or at the entrance to construction sites so they should be able to figure who delivered cement to them.

We got those here too, dangerous...especially mid corner, and those damn dump trucks leaving large amounts of gravel in bends! Almost saw my behind without a mirror yesterday on the way home because of said gravel.  :banghead: :banghead:

Internet ads make me crazy and annoyed!

I know that they are a necessary evil, someone has to pay the bills right?

Has anyone noticed how loud these ads are nowadays? WAY louder than the video clip that comes on after the ad. On top of the increased volume now they have disabled the volume control of the video player so that the only way these can be turned down is to use your computers, or your speakers, volume control.   >:(

Maybe that's why they are opposable thumbs instead of opposed thumbs. Just a thought....

Install adblock, and you won't see any more ads, practically anywhere. I don't work for these folks or anything, but I use this daily. It really does speed up browsing.
