Hazard light and Daylight Savers

Post by Mark

Nibaq posted today that he believes that people who turn on their hazard lights in poor visibility are idiots. I have to disagree with him regarding this comment because I believe hazard lights have numerous uses. Nibaq believes hazard lights should be used incase of emergency only but I believe it can be used in other non-emergency situations, for example:

During heavy rain
The blinking orange light adds more to your cars visibility during heavy rain which in return is safer for you.

During low visibility
During heavy fog or a heavy dust storm, the orange flasher allows your car to be more visable. When we used to go up the mountain in heavy fog in Lebanon, we used to turn off our cars high beams and turn on the flasher because the white light bounced back off the fog while the orange flasher cut through it. During the dust storm today I had my rear fog lights on while other people had their flashers on. Having your flasher on during low visibility does no mean you are an idiot, it means you are worried some idiot might not see your car and ram into it.

Emergency Braking
When you are driving on the highway you are used to people ahead of you braking every so often. But, when you have to brake suddenly, for example when traffic completely stops in front of you, the hazard light with your braking helps differentiate a normal brake from a very hard one.

I also believe Daylight savers should be standard here in Kuwait. Having a car light on during the day can help in preventing accidents.

Getting Rid of a Zit.. Quickly

Post by Mark

I don’t get zits too often but I do get them. I usually get them after consuming large amounts of chocolate and last week me and nat finished a super sized nutella jar by ourselves. So, now I have a zit on my forehead and its been there for 2 days already. Anyone got any tips on how to get rid of one quickly? When I was in highschool in Canada (1994) I used to get a lot of zits and I used to use Oxy products to help get rid of them. But it would still have taken 5 days to vanish a zit. With todays technology I am hoping there is something faster like a pill you take and 6 hours later the zits are gone. Is there such a thing?

Naseem’s Mercedes SLR Crash

Post by Mark

SLR Accident

Prince Naseem the boxing champ crashed his Mercedes SLR yesterday while trying to overtake a couple of cars on a tight road. He was later arrested at his home because he had fled after the accident. What interests me in this story is that Naseem was speeding in his car. I hate it when people buy fast cars and drive them slow so its cool that Naseem drives his car the way its supposed to be driven. But, as you can seen in the picture he totally smashed his KD170,000 SLR. Hmmm maybe he will get the Carrera GT next? [via]

Burger King, Burger King, Burger King

Post by Mark

I have really had enough. I am really starting to hate it. I can’t stand Burger King anymore. I have been having it nearly everyday since December and I think I just hit my BK limit. I just had a double XXL mushroom and swiss and I couldn’t finish it. I don’t think I can have it anymore. If only there was a McDonalds near by…
