The national news is so obnoxious to escape it I have been watching stuff like the dash cam’ crash-n-roll channels. The Russians colliding, rolling, crunching, running over people. Australian Truck drivers and the Banzai drivers around them. The Chinese videos were you see countless motor scooters traveling the streets like coveys of quail to run into each other or get plowed down by a passing metal raptors on 4 wheels. In Russia in the cities and towns it seems like there is always the bundled up old lady dressed in black with a large purse walking across the street and all of this metal crunching is going on around her and she does not react to it at all. In China you have a scrum of motor scoopers with bruised but otherwise uninjured people tangled up in the pile and people just pass around it. Watching the Russians why do their curse words sound so much better then ours? I have discovered something since I have been watching these videos it has vastly increased my situational awareness of my driving space. I am noticing things that I might not have before. So I guess this isn’t so mindless after all.
