"Road Rage" for dummies

The police and witnesses say buddy ran into a delivery-truck at a stop light. The driver gets out to check the damage and buddy, who ran into the delivery-truck, proceeds to punch the driver and scream at him. The driver runs back to his delivery-truck and closes all the windows so buddy pulls a metal pipe out of his car and starts trying to break the windows of the delivery-truck so he can get at the driver and throw a few more punches. A witness intervenes and grabs the metal pipe (respect to that dude) and then buddy tries to run down the witness with his car. To me this is a classic example of an asshole driver (I prefer the term "asshole driver" to the cutsey term "road rage". Asshole driver is, I believe, a refreshingly accurate description of this self-indulgent, childish behaviour.)

In this case the asshole himself, Trevor Samuel Myketiak, a 43-year old asshole, claims that he is in fact the victim. "He hit me first," Trevor says of the other driver. "I'm defending myself. He threw a punch at me. I got out, we scuffled. It got worse." Right, pulling out a metal pipe (standard equipment in every asshole's car) is worse, and trying to run down a witness is worser. Well, Trevor doesn't want to talk about the metal pipe, I guess that would be a little awkward for him, and about the witness he says, "I said, 'buddy, I'm backing up.' I didn't try to run him over." Well, that's all right then. As long as Trev wasn't trying to run him over.

Yeah, this is a classic example of self-indulgent, me-me-me-, assholedness. Well it will be in front of the courts this week and with luck Trevor will learn that his behaviour is just not acceptable to normal people, but I doubt it. Assholes are too busy thinking that the world owes them a living to bother with stuff like learning things, you know, like how responsible people act. The best thing to do with Trevor and all the other assholes like him is to take his drivers license away for life. He has shown that he does not deserve to have one (having a drivers license is not a right, it is a privilege). Perhaps a trike with a nice bell would be something he could handle without too much trouble. Oh, Trevor says he drives a 5-ton truck for a living? Sucks to be him I guess. Not as much as it sucks to be on the road with him though.

Drinking alcohol while pregnant

So the Journal of Epidemiology and Community Health has reported on a study that claims that the children of mothers who drank small amounts of alcohol during their pregnancy are not putting their unborn children at risk. In fact, the study suggests, light drinkers were 30% less likely to have children with behavioural problems than women who did not drink at all during pregnancy. Hmmm, I thought to myself, I know that I am not nearly as bright as those who went to school for years to learn how to do studies like this. I would not be able to interpret the data or to explain my findings or none of that stuff. I do know this though, drinking while pregnant is near criminal and very probably child abuse. I am not talking about a woman who has the very occasional glass of wine or something like that, although why someone would even take that sort of chance is beyond me. I am talking about someone who feels they have the right to be wasted no matter what, pregnancy or no pregnancy. And then there is this "study".

Why would one even look into something like this? So now there are women out there who may figure that a couple of beers a day is alright because that isn't like really getting drunk or nothing, and they can use this study to back that way of thinking up. Sure, these are the types who would drink anyway, but why give them an excuse? Maybe I am just being all squant and everything, but shouldn't job number one here be looking out for the unborn baby? The mother can make choices, the baby can't.
