    When driving, if someone is fuming with road rage directed at you and they are doing things like flashing their lights, screwing up their face with aggression and sticking up the finger etc, then reacting by giving them a really cheerful super camp friendly wave and a big smile in return is just brilliant.

    I just failed at that, narrow road with traffic 'calming' that brings out the worst in people near here. Pushy bloke in a black Range Rover insisted on remaining attached to the bumper of the car in front even though she could barely get through the gap. Rather than wait at the wider gap Mr Toad kept going, as he crawled by my window with his also open I couldn't resist saying "patience is a virtue.....ya censored " I drove off at this point as others had the decency to wait, I could hear him erupting with rage as I left. :lol:
  • the cricket. smash. boom. wham kazaaaam. decimated. destroyed. hyperbole.

    When I get my autonomous vehicle I do hope it has a road-rage mode.

    MF please explain the Cricket, why does it matter? As I understand it they are only tests, when are they going to do it for real?

    Defining yourself by hatred of another is not at all healthy and more than a little sad. This is multiplied tenfold when the hatred is not reciprocated
  • Indeed, it is truly sad he hates the English.

    Aye. Haven't looked at vintage yet but current thoughts are:

    Fender Player HSS in some sort of sunburst of tobacco etc.

    Boss Katana 50.

    It won't be much good compared to something well chosen second hand for similar money, if it inspires you to get playing though do it! The first guitar you buy will only end up being one of many :)
