Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Uh huh. If I'm feeling angry and snide, one of my favorite things to yell at these ****ers is, "you're not that important."

Or, like I yelled at the guy who passed me on a blind corner and forced an oncoming car to almost have to go off the road, only to make a left turn within 50 yards - "Wow. You saved 2 seconds."

2 days in a row Mrs John has solved it in fewer tries than I have. It's the one word game where I have been able to better her. She loves word games and usually kicks ass.

Yelling at motorists is a waste of time ( I know I can't believe I'm saying it either) They enjoy it. It let's them know they have elicited the reaction they wanted. They are bullies, they wanted to scare you, when you yell they know they did scare you. Give them the finger instead. That tells them I know what you were trying to do, you failed, and you, Sir, may go intercourse yourself.
Do it calmly, and as deliberately as possible. It gets the point across. And is less stressing on yourself.

So what your saying is, I shouldn’t dial it up to 700+ watts chase them down and begin screaming an spewing spit at them in a volcanic like rage?

How could that possibly help?.....The only time running ever produced a satisfactory reaction was when it was done on Baywatch, in slow-motion...by Yasmeen (sp) you sir are not Yasmeen.
