Traffic calming...


OK, your local authority decides to put some idiotic lines on the road, or an island that forces you into on-coming traffic, or a big lump in the road, something to either fuck up your car or endanger your life. Why? To slow you down and "make it safer". Worse still they call it "traffic calming".

I don't know about calming, it fucking pisses me off. I have never been calmed by any of these measures. When I had a lovely sports car I could often not make it down some roads because some cunt had put a big lump in the road that the car could not clear without ripping half it's insides out. As for these stupid bloody "islands" that force a perfectly good two way street into a single passing point... Whoever can up with that should hung by the balls.

Maybe it's just my age but more and more stupid shit pisses me off.

Newscasts that tell me how I should feel about an item of news. "Todays events are shocking", really? Okay, YOU may be shocked your statement implies I should be shocked too. Well fuck you! Just tell me what happened and I'LL decide whether it's shocking. It's almost like they think we need to have all information predigested. We need them to tell us how to react, or what to think about events. You watch the next newscast. Seriously, watch it and see how much ACTUAL NEWS there is in it. Most of it will be either:

a) Newscasters telling you how you should be reacting.
b) Politicians telling you what you should be feeling/thinking/doing.

The actual news content of a 30 minute news programme is about 3 minutes by my estimate. JUST TELL US THE NEWS AND FUCK OFF!
