    Thats when I show them how good my brakes are. You should see a person when you lock it up on the interstate because they are so close you cant even see the lights from their headlights. I did that to a rustang and lets just say he wont be doing that again for a long time. Wife said your going to get a ticket doing that crap. I looked at her and said didn't you see that dog run out in front of us? :p

    ^ Must admit that that is something I've always wanted to do. I slow down for tailgaters when traffic doesn't allow them to pass. I have no problem adding 1 minute to my commute to piss off bad drivers :)

    And in regards to the dr. pepper 10 commercials, I just love them. Be manly. Watch this cheesy action movie. Dr. Pepper 10, no women. We are men. Very silly, quite entertaining.

    I'll be where I'm at!
    When the company you work for continues to turn a substantial profit each quarter and each "year end" and takes more from the people responsible (the employees) for that growth each year as well.

    ANYTHING to make just a little bit more money!!

    Just found out our health insurance premiums aren't going up next year, our level of coverage is going down.

    If you paid for the 90%/10% plan for 2011, the rate for 2012 is the same but now you are on a 80%/20% plan!! Way to squeeze out just a little more money from your employees!! :thinking:

    People in the far left lane that don't merge right when someone gets behind them. "Slower traffic keep right" would make for less congestion.

    I'm guilty of tailgating people (from the posting above), but it's mostly if you're in the far left lane going the same speed as the car to your right and you're bottle necking traffic.

    Oh and I'll also tailgate you if it's bumper to bumper traffic and you leave such a long gap between you and the car in front of you that all the cars around me are passing us because they're cutting in front of you. And worse when you let 18-wheelers in front of you constantly. /rant about why I tailgate.

    When you have the app color notes try to send spam to a friend through your text messaging program. look what it tried to send.

    I've been using ColorNote and I think you might like it. Check it out from your Android phone:
    http://market.android.com/search?q=pname:com.socialnmobile.dictapps.notepad.color.note
    *Note: Tap the Market icon in the Complete action screen that appears after you tap the link above.


    Needless to say I am really mad right now and i uninstalled the app. I will use htc notes and tasks for now on.

    My mom's stupid, stupid Sylvania Mini tablet really grinds my gears right about now!!! Trying to get it all spiffed up and nice for her (well, probably for my sister), thought I had it alllll set, ready to go-noticed none of the apps could move to the SDcard (option greyed out on everything). Spent the last, I dunno, 3 hours trying to figure it out. Still can't. Can't find a decent forum for the thing, and the one I did find has no answers. Stupid internal storage reads as SDcard, SDcard is labeled SDcard1, there is an SDcard2 folder, even tho you can only install one SDcard; Fails everytime I try to make the SDcard1 read/writable; reformatted the card-nope, used a different card-nope; noticed there was a system update-nope,no help. Plus, this is great, its pretty much a 50/50 toss up as to whether or not the thing even *has* a stock recovery-some do, some don't-so I have to be that much more careful. I now loathe this devil gadget entirely. Doesn't help that its slower than molassas, doesn't have gapps and has a resistive (sp?) screen thats squirrely as all get out. *sigh* I give up, I'm going to bed, I quit. (she has a Dell Streak 7 as well, so its not like I'm leaving her high and dry or anything...)

    Why is it Google Maps can take a pic of my ass crack doing yard work in Vivid HD from outer space, then every morning on the news I get a grainy b&w silhouette photo of a bank robber taken in the bank by 15 different cameras /angles less then 10 ft away?...and then asked if you know this person call 911. ...a $50 webcam can do a better job than a lot of these "security" cams.

    HAH! This MUST be a global issue! My rant is why I cant have enough dough to invest in cheap cellphone cams that take better video than these robbery-clip vids; and sell these better-quality cams to the conveinence stores across all countries

    Just got an Apple Spam for the new phone. The damn thing was in Portuguese! Somehow my Yahoo account got linked to Brazil which is another spam capital. Most of the crap is in Portuguese. Boa Noite

    People that buy those Sylvania Mini tablets and expect them to work! :p I actually bought one at Walgreens when they had it for $99. I wanted to see how it worked. By the end of the day at work (I went out at lunch and bought it) I already decided to return it. The touch screen was one of the worst screens I've used since my first "smart phone" back several years ago. I thought about giving that thing away as a gift, but even then I figured the person that I'd gift it to would be hitting me up constantly because something didn't work right. I'm sure glad I took that thing back. Oh and good luck with it! :D

    Thanks! I just gave it back to her as it was, and turns out I was probably just obsessing to much-it's fine as is for what she wants to use it for, at least for now. (except that now her Dell Streak won't charge, so that has to be replaced, and all she has right now is crappy mini)

    If you're going to run out of gas right in front of me in traffic, at least turn your hazards on instead of leaving it up to me to figure out why the hell you're not moving forward
