I Wish I Had an LED Marquee...

Ok, quick rant before classes start.

Read the title. Why do I wish this? Well, I would stick it in the rear window of my car so other drivers behind me can read it. Why you ask? The answer is simple. Springfield has some of the most annoying drivers in the area. Let me 'splain.

People tailgate me, and nothing irritates me more than a tailgater, because its a major traffic hazzard. If I have to legitimately brake all of a sudden, whats to garuntee that they won't slam into me. At the very least their brakes will go SKREEEEEEEEEEE, and that freaks me out. Then there are those that pass me. Let me give you the stats. 9/10 people that pass me are female, 4/5 of those females have short hair, and 2/3 of them will be going to the same place I am. Sad. Ok, so 4/5 of the tailgaters are male, 3/5 of those are people in trucks, and 1/5 in vans. When we have to wait for a light to change, they stop barely inches away form my bumper. So I creep up another inch for leeway, keeping a safe distance to the person in front o me (not a big space, but one that can constitute as safe). Half of the time, the idiot behind me will creep up as much, if not mre than I do. I hate that, because I can then see their engine through their grill. I am not a mechanic, so why does it benifit me to see it, stupid?

Ok, so how does this relate to an LED marquee? It can reflect my feelings for the day. I would have a keyboard and a simple program, and I would have some of the following statements from time to time:

"I am following the legal speed limit and you are...."

"A car length per 10 miles an hour, so this is a 2 MPH zone?"

"Tailgate me, and you could cause an accident that would be on your conscience for the rest of your life."

"Don't get me started."

"I hope you drive like this on a curvy, cliff road."

"If I am driving at the limit without being pulled over by cops and you're passing me, put 2 and 2 together."

"You DON'T look pregnant, sir."

Just some of the things I would put on there. Ok, rant over. I hope to update again soon.

Remember, it may look like few updates if you're not my friend....

I hope you have a good one.
