Driving Quiz

So let’s say that I’m driving in the left lane of a two lane street, and you are in a car 100 feet ahead on the right, and now, you want to move into my lane. Do you

1) Turn on your blinker, stare blankly back at me, but continue in the right lane until you decide that you have to nearly chop off my front bumper to make your left turn.

2) Turn on your blinker, hit your brakes and turn into my lane and drive 20 mph under the speed limit when your turn is still a half mile away.

3) Smoothly accelerate and nicely merge in front of me, leaving me plenty of room to either slow or move around you when you make your left turn.

Seems like most of the drivers today couldn’t count past two.

I’ve been meaning to write a post about my trip to the Philippines, but patents have been taking all my time recently. If you check my youtube channel, I do have a few videos of traffic and some of the crazy things I saw, but no time to post up some of the best of 600+ pictures that I took.

Most of them are of the wedding I attended, but there were a number of Baguio, and Tagaytay, two interesting places that I visited besides Manila.
