Emperor Mollari's Rant Line


  • 2007 AAR League

    Does something really tick you off?  Want to blow off some steam?  Post it here.

    Here’s my Rant…

    IDIOT DRIVERS!

    Anyone who has to commute more than a few miles or use our nation’s freeways can probably relate to this.

    People who insist on constantly changing lanes to get that one car ahead advantage REALLY PISS ME OFF!  They don’t arrive at their destination any faster, and it’s these jerks who are responisble for the majority of accidents that clog up the freeways.  A pox on their house!

    Drivers who don’t signal really piss me off …… theres so many of them


  • 2007 AAR League

    I can contribute to this. There’s a certain driver who I think would merit bringing back the death penalty.

    Here’s the situation: the street is really backed up. You’re at an intersection controlled by a red light. The block ahead of the light is completely full - it’s a parking lot. However, the light is green. Now, the driver that really pisses me off drives into the intersection and has to stop right in the middle, because the street ahead is full, as I said. Now instead of waiting at their light, they are waiting in the middle of the intersection.

    Then, 10 seconds later, the light changes, but this car is still in the middle. However, cars coming from the side now can’t move. They have a green light, but this idiot driver is parked in front of them. Meanwhile the side street also gets blocked up, because those cars now can’t move.

    And then of course someone tacks themselves onto the end of THAT line, also blocking an intersection.

    Yes, those people should just be flushed down the toilet. Because you really won’t get anywhere any faster - it will take a few light cycles to get through the next block anyway, so you end up getting through on the same light.

    Arrggg!!!

    Yes I do.

    Er, they.

    Lol.

    But I do use turn signals, and I don’t cut off accelerating cars.

    Drunk Chicago Bears players who leave their totaled Lamborghini on the median after crashing it at 3:40 AM on one of the major expressways into the city causing traffic jams for the entire day as rubber neckers (drivers looking at it) look at a Lamborghini for the first time in their lives.



  • Yes, I dislike the way people drive, most of the time.

    So I drive very defensively, or, as I like to say, old people fark.  I travel in OPF units, not mph.

    Actually, I drive the speed limit and rarely go much more than 5mph over, unless it’s the highway.

    But if some jackass gets on my tail or something like that, I slow down just to piss them off.

  • I live in the woods, I go fast as fuck and nobody cares. :mrgreen: And If I do managed to get snagged, I know all the local cops.

    Of course, MPs up here at base aren’t so understanding. 😛

    My cousin is a MP. He has some crazy stories about drunk spring breakers.  :lol: :lol:



  • Well, I don’t pull crap like that cause I’m a high speed, but I know the Army guys are ALWAYS getting in deep shit like that.

    Been there, done that, never got caught….  😄

    Army guys do everything “High Speed”



  • No seriously, theres guy in my brothers uh, troop, squadron, or whatever the hell the cavs are grouped in these days, that shoot up on weekends. 😛



  • On the speed front…

    Fastest I have ever driven:  165 mph in the fall of 1987 on US220 (now I-99) UPHILL on a straight stretch between the Cessna and St. Clairsville exits in a 1984 Jaguar XJS V12.  I could have gone faster, I still had pedal to go, but the alignment and wheel balance where not race tuned, and it was starting to vibrate like crazy at that speed.

    On the “rant” topic, a slightly different rant…
    Annoying Neighbors.
    I have this one neighbor who has this hedge that could be REALLY GREAT, but he refuses to take care of it.  There are sweetgum trees growing up through it, and it has been infested with honeysuckle (or a close relative).  It is a property line hedge, but the trunks are on his side of the line  I work like crasy to keep my side of it looking half decent.  But he has not trimmed it in more than 2 years, will not deal with the sweetgum trees (and anyone who has dealt with sweetgum knows the problems they cause), and will not thin the honeysuckle from his side.

    I can’t even just put up a fence and forget it because the honeysuckle will just grow over to my fence and rip it apart, and the sweetgum balls fall without regard to property lines…

    If it were not for the privacy the darn thing gives me from this annoying neighbor, the annoying hedge would get a case of blight… ROUND-UP BLIGHT!

    A troop is a company.  I’ve known guys that did acid or x or both, mostly young guys though.  If I caught one of my guys putting a needle in his arm there would be hell to pay, and then I would make sure the shitbag went to rehab as  a civilian.  I don’t need a junkie watching my back.

    I have however drunk myself sick many times with my buddies off duty.
