This is a question I don't understand the attraction

Smaug says: Ricky Gervais. Lesbian pr0n. Going into a crowded bar, purely because it's crowded. All these things seem to be popular with everybody else, but I just can't work out why. What leaves you cold just as much as it turns everyone else on?

Ah yes. Here's one that really fucking winds me up.
I'm a very patient driver. I don't honk people, I don't sit 1cm from the bumper of L-platers and I especially don't suffer from road rage.

However, people who are shit at driving wind me up. The sort of people who won't go through a gap between the kerb and a turning car despite having at least two feet on either side. The people who stop every two seconds when they're reversing because they can't quite work out how the steering wheel relates to the direction of travel. The sort of people who still regularly stall the engine despite having been driving the same car for over 10 years. The ones who sit in the middle lane and then turn left without checking their mirrors or indicating.

Oh, and not women either. Approximately 50% of these plonkers are male.

I don't mind people being cautious - caution is good, it reduces accidents. But when you just physically can't handle the information coming into your brain - that's where you get a problem.

What the fuck is wrong with them? Driving is not difficult. If you can't do it, get a smaller car, or just, erm, don't bother.

Not a mysoginistic generalisation
but if I let a women driver out of a side street, I very rarely (and I mean very) get any form of thanks. I've also noticed that women will very rarely let me out of a side-street.

Contrary to popular opinions, taxi drivers are the best at doing this. But they compensate by not indicating enough

The singular of data is not anecdote

On the few occasions that I have to drive to work, my route involves a road which gradually widens from one to two lanes on my side of a central barrier, as it approaches a set of traffic lights. Almost everybody stays on the left to go straight on, but I need to be on the right to turn at the lights. My route to the nice empty right-hand lane is often blocked by a car on the left. If it's being driven by a man, he'll usually see me in his mirrors and try and pull over a bit to let me through. If it's being driven by a woman, she usually won't.

Why this is, when women claim to be better at finding things in fridges, I do not know.

If you can't drive
don't get a smaller car. They're not easier to drive. I find my big estate car far easier to drive than a little Micra or the like. It's more planted on the road and less twitchy.

Just take the bus and improve life for the rest of us!
