Reversing alarms on vehicles can be switched off but it is usally a software crack only the dealers can apply properly. In my experience they aren't keen even if it is legal as it's considered a 'bad look' but a large box of beer at 8pm on a Thursday has been known to get it done !

The Jake Brake. Don't get me wrong now, I absolutely love hearing the JB, but in the wee hours of the night and some ignorant heavy equipment vehicle operator goes Jake Braking down the hill, it sounds terrifying. And it's annoying when there's nothing else to drown out the sound of it..

The idea of a school stopping traffic for the kids. One of the stupidest ideas in the long history of stupid ideas. Too many times, kids get so used to having traffic stop for them, that one day, they get off a city bus, cross without looking, and become a hood ornament, or worse.

I always look when I cross the street whether or not I'm getting off the school bus. I don't trust the idiots that live in this valley. I'd rather have traffic stop than having some drunk idiot speeding through a bus' stop arms. It's not cool, and I've seen it happen before.

Like I said, if a woman never wears a bra in her life her breasts will be nothing like breasts that have spent most of their life being supported by a bra. Watch a documentary about tribal societies and you'll see what I mean.

No, school receptionist. I see the parents more than the teachers do...most likely...I couldn't be a teacher for a million bucks...I don't have that kind of patience. I was brought up in the old days when kids were terrified of their teachers and respected them, and the parents backed the achool instead of their little brats....and a swat on the behind was a swift and effective punishment. These days you can't even look at these kids sideways....
