This is like exception makes rule posts.
Back in the late 80's we had a 16 year old Swiss
exchange student stay with us for 3 months.
Anyway, we had waterfront and a ski-boat,
and she wanted to learn to water-ski.
First time she tried, up she goes...went
around the lake 4 times, we had to stop the
boat to plunk her.
Next she wants to one ski, goes by the dock
and drops her ski like a pro, and never failed.
My daughter did ok at driving, but I ruled she
must set her hair tied back in a pony tail, to
drive my cars, or anyone elses.
Chicks who want to look sexy and drive too with
hair over their eyes and ears are a menace.
Myself, I'm such an air-head don't even have
the radio on if there's traffic, and I have a
pilot's license, but I love the feel and sound
of the engine and the road hitting the tires.
Maybe boys empathize with machinery more than
girls, likely so. If that's the case then when
teaching girls to drive, more emphasis should
be put on the connection to the machine, and
learn to love a oneness with the vehicle, not
much difference than riding a horse.
Fusing with a powerful physical vehicle is
always a thrill for me.
Here in south FL the winter is the *season*, lots of people come down from
up north, and clog the thoroughfares.
Locals and transients seem to have developed a genetic defect that causes
them to cruise below the speed limit in the left lane.
This is causing wrecks and road rage. The senate is developing a new law
right now to address the issue of people driving in the left lane.
As usual, this will NOT deal with the problem directly.
There are already laws on the books that focus on *impeding traffic* that
are not being enforced.
Around here its well known that there are more cop cars in the parking lot
of the Crackerbarrels than on the road.
