    169.48 VEHICLE LIGHTING.
    Subdivision 1.Lights to be displayed.

    (a) Every vehicle upon a highway within this state:

    (1) at any time from sunset to sunrise;

    (2) at any time when it is raining, snowing, sleeting, or hailing; and

    (3) at any other time when visibility is impaired by weather, smoke, fog or other conditions...


    The generality of it.

    It is not directly about wipers and headlights, but it is a good rule of thumb re. (a)(2). That point (a)(2) isn't necessarily about you being able to see, it is as much or more making your vehicle more visible to others.

    People who use stupid phrases because they heard them on tv and want to sound smart.
    WTF is a ‘laundry list’???

    Laundry list: Typically a reference to a long list of stuff that needs to get done. Sometimes to imply it's a bunch of stuff you'd rather not have to do but must do, like laundry.

    People who sit on toilets.

    Ones who refer to people as "ones".

    People who hydrate with water.

    Sorta like "protein" when talking about meat. What ever happened to using just good old "meat" when that's what you're talking about?

    Let's back up! That's a lot to unpack, right there. The optics aren't too good on that one. Will you be able to seize the moral high ground if you do that?

    I think I've cited this one before, but it bears repeating ... "needs repaired". It's like fingernails on a chalkboard to me.

    I've been checking into that 'new' neighborhood based social media site "Nextdoor" to keep up with local issues and topics.

    What pisses me off is the ability of regular users to delete threads they created with unlimited rights/duration.

    There have been several posts asking for help or recommendations, and dolts think that because *their* question was answered, they need to delete the thread as no to 'clog up' the forums.

    All trace of the help or recommendations are then lost to everyone else.

    AMEN! Attempting to design an engineered solution to peoples lack of situational awareness and common sense is a hopelessly flawed exercise. Doing so may help in some situations but, overall, will prove to encourage more of the same poor basic driving skills. The folks that must rely on those systems should take the bus or simply stay home. Please!

    . I’ll second that!

    How about when you go to a bar, domestics are $2 for happy hour, order a Sam Adams, and get charged $7?
    I guess I thought I knew what domestic meant....

    Come to Germany :)
    A case of 20 half liter bottles of Becks or Haake Beck costs maybe 12 to 15 Euros.

    My favorite, no-name beer (which tastes great) costs a whopping €6.40 a case:):beerchug:

    From now on when you see "domestic beer" think thin, light yellow fizzy water, from one of the US mega-brewers. You'll be reasonably safe in selecting a domestic that way.

    "Das ist ein gutes idee". :D

    Driving around the Nurburgring is on the bucket list.... and cheap alcohol is a bonus.
    Saving up now. Would also love to see some German hifi events... with a bier in hand of course. :)
