Out of the Blue

I've seen a few sad reminders lately that today is the anniversary of Paul Steed's passing. The former id artist died four years ago today, and in many ways the shock from that persists. Paul would like the attention, but not the mourning. I imagine he would far prefer the takeaway from this to be to appreciate life and friends as best you can. At least that's how I try to view it. I try to use thoughts like that as a reminder to be better about keeping in touch with people.

"The Worst Driving Habits with Each Type Of Transmission"

Honestly, these are exactly what my dad taught me at 14 years old learning to drive.

Also, after driving manual cars for almost 10 years after that. I decided that I really don't want to drive one again. Manuals + City Traffic = horribly tedious.

My car has what I call a manumatic mode, basically it's an auto, but you have the option of going into a clutch-less manual shifting mode. I think it would be fun to use, but since I'm always in the city I don't want to fuss with it.

And this isn't really what the article was getting at but one of my all time hated things are people who continuously inch forward at a red-light, seemingly no matter how close they already are to another vehicle. My friend does this and it makes me nervous as hell. Your license plates don't need to kiss, keep your foot on the fucking brake.
