I just found this article interesting, so I had to share:
And in an effort to make this entry more worthwhile, I shall now discuss random thoughts that have been going through my head. Namely, why can't people wait 3 seconds and live a safer life?
Around here, it's extremely uncommon to drive down the highway without someone whipping out just in front of you from a side street. They do this no matter what, but they're fondest of doing it when otherwise, there's no other traffic in sight. So, I have to brake like nobody's business to avoid slamming into their side (when I'm going no faster than the speed limit, no less) and they save themselves a grand total of two or three seconds. They could just as easily have waited that small bit of time, then pulled out with all the time in the world. Why do they do it? People want to be in front. That's all it is. They want to be ahead of everybody else and they don't care that someday it's going to get them in a wreck.
That's why there are so many wrecks, really: people are morons.

No, it's true. People are idiots.
