This is a message to the reliefer types that stare at me in awe as I flash my headlights at you... I do this because your headlights are off. In inclement weather, driving with your headlights is not only common courtesy, it's the law. I don't do this for your benefit. I figure if you are too stupid to use them in low visibility then letting you take yourself out of the gene pool has it's benefits. I do this for my friends and family. You might think you can see fine, but to the person waiting to pull out of an intersection in blizzard or heavy rain conditions, you are invisible. Please stop being a piece of shit... Turn on your lights.

Running with the headlights obviously costs too much money.

One - you lose the electrical power that is needed to run your crappy stereo at distortion causing volume levels. Leaving the headlights off allows one to hear every crackle, hiss & pop coming out of those home-made sub boxes with the over-powered ebay sub.

Two - By turning on the headlights you invoke Newton's Laws. You know, for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. So the light blasing out of the poorly aimed headlight must be pushing back against the car thus slowing the car down. This in turn causes the operator to push harder on the right pedal.

I was driving to work one morning, and on my road, a car flashed its lights at me. Thought a cop was hiding, so of course I slowed up a bit. What came next made me want to hurl. A deer had been hit, and was lying in the middle of the road, trying to get up. Very sad. Thankfully the cops came and put it down. So flashing lights can mean all types of things. Pay attention!

You'll have to come up with a different number two reason. Stony says that this Newtonian Theory does not work.

Everyday I flash my headlights to countless persons driving in inclement weather without their lights on. These are not just reliefers, but every kind of people around here that have become to complacent in their driving to even care about their safety. As long as the vehicle is moving, radio is blasting, cell phone is OK, then everything is good. The last few days, I've even yelled at these idiots about their headlights as they were driving past my house when I was shoveling snow at the end of my driveway. And these "Clueless Idiots" had no idea what I was doing. They probably couldn't figure out what this crazy person was yelling about. Yup, I'm the crazy one.
My other pet pieve is the idiots that can't stay on the road while driving around curves in the road. More on that later.

How about the idiots that think they're driving a big semi and have to use the entire road to make a turn? And how many idiots that don't know what the left hand lever by the steering wheel is for?

P.S. Of Course, These SAME People Often Don't Even BOTHER To USE Their WIPERS Either... :twisted:
