Tell A Driver

If 2 drivers travel a 100km road non-stop; no police barriers, no speed bumps, no potholes.
Driver 1 floors his gas pedal and does 160 Km/hr
Driver 2 takes it easy and goes a little over the speed limit - 90Km/hr

Would you believe Driver 2 will only get there roughly 35 minutes later?
Those 35 minutes reduce when you start introducing real life factors like curves in the road, potholes, multiple stops.

Tell a commercial driver you know, to ease up on the gas pedal. The lives onboard are more valuable than the few minutes gained.

[Isn't it soooo annoying when you speed up and pass someone on the road then you get caught in traffic and the person not only catches up but also eases riiiiight past you?]

To the Left left left. To the Right right right.

Have a fun weekend.
I'll be at this intersection at some point this weekend. Let me know when you get there too. We can have a drink or something.

Curiosity & the Cat

I was wondering what-on-earth the cat was so curious about that got it killed. All nine lives!It must have been some good stuff the damned cat was onto.

So I got curious and started prying.

It turns out "Curiosity killed the cat but satisfaction brought it back"!
People, satisfaction brought it back!

Curiosity isn't a harmful thing at all.
It rather results in satisfaction.

You On Earth

Peace on earth.
I haven't wished for that yet in 2012.
My wish is that we will each use our brainpower
and make selfless choices.
