    Ugly Generalizations?

    I know everyones got one. Or several. As much as we like to say that we're non-judgemental, there's always something out there that just bugs the shit out of us EVERY time we see it even though we know that the statement just ain't true, we use it like a security blanket. What'r yours?

    Pontiac drivers are assholes. Think about it. They always tailgate. Nearly always are zipping recklessly through traffic. Are typically young males with basball hats on backwards or females with the 'Calvin' pissing on _______ sticker.

    The French are assholes. They just are.
    You're more boring than you know.

    BMW drivers are pricks

    Hummer drivers are pricks with more money and need to be hit by a 18 wheeler

    yes mean
    "They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety." Ben Franklin

    Remember this motto to live by: "Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, martini in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming 'WOO- HOO what a ride!'"

    I would go with the monte carlos and the older the monte carlo.. the worse they are. I would lump crotch rocket motorcycles into the same category.

    What they want me to think:

    Drivers of big SUV's, pickups, and hummers are tougher than me.

    Drivers of BMW's, Mercedes, and Jaguars are richer than me.

    Drivers of Jeeps and sports cars are more fun than me.

    Drivers of mini-vans are more responsible than me.

    Drivers of Saabs and Volkswagens are smarter than me.

    All taxi drivers in Chicago are complete idiots and must be flogged!

    I commute a very long distance everyday and everyday I witness a taxi driver do some completely a-hole move.
    I'm sorry. Is my bias showing?

    Let's not be didactic in this profession, because that is a path to disillusion and irrelevancy.

    Six seasons and a movie!

    Planners take themselves and their work way too seriously and have no sense of humor--it's just a job, damn it! Many are nerds.

    Suburbanites - To many, their City becomes "hip" when they get a Starbucks and a Panera Bread.

    Engineers - Think they are the greatest thing since sliced bread, look down on planners, cant seem to handle any type of situation that involves "outside the box" thinking.

    For me, it's old folks (over the age of 65) on the road. No matter which lane they're in, you can bet your life that they'll be snailing along at 20 mph. Damn!!!

    French-speaking Canadians who visit the Adirondacks always come by the busload, trample the alpine vegetation, and don't understand "leave no trace" principles.

    And they're rude.

    Wait a minute, it's true!

    that everybody in Indiana likes:
    IU Basketball, Norte Dame Football, and the Indy 500
    Oddball
    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?
    From Kelly's Heroes (1970)


    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.
    From Electric Horseman (1979)
