Making good decisions comes from experience. Experience comes from making bad decisions.
We're finding out about more and more animals that can gain Experience from watching others' bad (and good) decisions; something once thought only humans coulda shoulda woulda achieve.

Do not use cruise control in your car during the winter if there is even the slightest chance of precipitation.

(regardless of how much you want to talk on the phone, text & scroll through re'tweets) :shakehead

Related: planned deceleration on the highway should be accomplished modulating the accelerator pedal whenever possible.

Albuquerque, New Mexico is like many cities that do not often get snowy, icy road conditions compared to St. Paul, Minnesota (for instance) where drivers are more savvy about hazardous winter driving. It is a common occurrence that young bucks with their Pavement Princess 4X4's think that because they are driving a 4 wheel drive, it is their privilege, their right, to drive faster on slippery roads. Steer clear of them. They do not realize until too late their inability to stop is no better than a regular vehicle.

If you don't have something nice to say, don't say anything at all. If someone else has something to say that you don't like, don't try to cancel or dox them. What goes around, comes around.

Don't follow political advice from celebrities. Popularity doesn't equate with intelligence.

If life gives you lemons, make a battery. Try to be more positive than negative.

If at first you don't succeed, you shouldn't be disarming bombs.

If someone strikes you, turn the other cheek. No, not that one.

The important thing here is traction control does not save you or should you think it will.
when traction control kicks in, it triggers all sorts of systems on the car, this fully upsets the balance of the car.

If you're sipping your $9 cappuccino while figuring out your iPhone13.R.ix and traction control fires off,,=,,=,*
the cars balance changes instantly & your reaction will be 100% unconducive to the grip of the road beneath you.


Never think driver assist electronics in vehicles are the answer.

Went to a big home improvement store today to get a specific long taper punch.
I walked around in circles for a while before asking a guy if he could look up what isle it's in.

He looked it up & it was in isle 234E or something.

I said to him; along with listing the quantities 'in stock' online, list what isle it's in.
..with the time savings, maybe I'll buy something else.:cool:

(other stores probably do that already, it's just logic)

hehehe,, big circles Chance

they weren't around the drill bits
..they weren't around the x
..they weren't around the y
..they weren't around the z

they were hidden between the neon gear & some other stuff in isle 234E :nana:

add; it was at a Menards, in the tool/hardware area.
the isles are shorter, so walked up one, down the other ect.. also easy to miss something.
