What is the charity YOU love to support?
My husband and I prefer to make a couple of larger (ha, as in one-income-two-kids-in-diapers large) gifts at the end of the year instead of doing the $20 here and $20 there thing throughout the year. I am having a lot of trouble deciding which charity to support - there are so many great ones, and a lot of mediocre ones too. We usually support St. Jude's, MS Research, and our local humane association, but I really want to hear what is close to your heart.
So out with it, if you had one million dollars, and you had to give it all to one or two charities, who would you choose?
I usually don't talk about my traffic beefs on here because I have so many of them, and we all complain about idiot drivers, but I have seen this issue so many times over the past few days - it's like a sign from the traffic gods to put it on my blog.
OK. Picture this. You're driving along and the car in front of you kindly puts on his turn signal to make a right turn. You move to the left to go around him, when suddenly, he swerves wildly to the left before swinging into his hard right turn.
Listen buddy, it's not like swinging first to the left and then turning to the right is going to launch you at hypersonic speed into your 25 mph turn... Oh you go you big fast driver you. Why don't you go home, park your ass in your easy chair, get out the Budweiser and Slim Jims, spark up a Marb Red, flip on NASCAR, and pretend you're the one in the jumpsuit going fast and turning left.
Or maybe I've got this one wrong. Maybe it's not the race car driver wannabes (even though I see this phenomenon primarily with tooth-challenged hairy men in big red pickup trucks with the race car numbers and the stupid cartoon pee-on (ex-wife, Chevy-Ford-Dodge, liberals) on the back.
Maybe it's the Star Wars generation. Maybe they really do think there is some sort of gravitational slingshot phenomenon whereby the relative motion of the vehicle is accelerated in some variety of orbital angular momentum. If that's the case, he's a drawing for the nerds to clear up that misconception:
