Here's some options you have:
1) STFU
2) learn how to drive
3) move so that others can make the place better
4) stop being a douche
Get it?
I have a life, a far better one than I'd like to elaborate, I am also very content in my career and yes, I do attempt to put losers down because 1) they are lying, spreading BS wherever they are 2) they have no driver skills and need a stop light in a rural area. Bitter isn't the word. Most of the people here drive like shit, and need remedial driver training. Plain and simple. Don't believe me? Take a trip down Pomona ave. and look at all the car parts in the ditch from single car accidents.
Honestly, there are quite a few here that are full of shit and need to be brought down a notch.
In spite of how good you say your life it, it appears you're having a bad week. Before you burn all your bridges behind you, maybe you should enroll in a Dale Carnegie course so as to brush up on your "people" skills. This is Colonial Beach, not Tucson. People around here for the most part are pretty friendly. Please don't spoil that with your sour grapes.

Tucson? What relevance does that have? Besides that, Dale Carnegie training is an employee sales skills training that has nothing to do with personal relationships.
This is exactly what I'm talking about here. You all think you're so great. You should know about the things you say before you just "splatter" on here.

BTW; I'm done here. This is pointless and gets nowhere.

Peace.

Ever heard of the book "Flowers for Algernon?"
Yeah, didn't think so.
Excellent!

The original reason I used the name Algernon was because of a mouse. I used it to counterpunch another mean character known as "Space Mouse", who was spewing antagonistic garbage to disrupt numerous threads in topix. Thankfully she is back in her rat hole for now, after unsuccessfully assuming other easily identifiable nom de guerres to carry on her disruptions.

The second reason was so as not to be confused with Masterscout.

I apologize to all the thread participants I may have insulted here and I will not be posting any longer. It has come to my attention that there is a very deep rooted ignorance set in this town that can never be changed. Thanks, but no thanks.

Don't let them win. we need the cold hard truth about CB. I liked your insight and spade calling. Remember most posters on CB Topix know two sentences.

"Would you like fries with that?" and "Can I use my EBT card to buy this."

Every now and then you will find a poster who breaks that mold so keep an open mind. There are a few people on here. The rest just want you to super size the fries.

Ooh. Aren't you so smart.
Not everyone has read every speculative fiction book, so no, I haven't read it. I have better things to do, like live.
I assume you live in CB, since you likely have no job and spend all of your time reading short stories to use as ammunition against the more productive people in society. So you can look smart, somewhat.
Actually, I read Flowers for Algernon in 8th grade. It is used, regularly, in advanced English courses.

I actually work more than full-time. I also read a lot, as most smart people tend to do. Only a dumbass would make fun of someone for being literate. I mean, my god, I know that Algernon isn't just from Star Trek, unlike you.

So, who is the idiot here? One who was trying to make fun of someone's user name, even though you know it was from Star Trek, or the person who is well read?

Let me put this in terms you might understand:

I have lived in the area my whole life. I love it here and choose to stay here. I have traveled to lots of places and keep coming home after each visit. I am a well educated person, not a dumb ass or full of BS as you seem to be. I am not a Lier!!! But call folks that is usually a fighting offense around here.

I travel Pomona ROAD (NOT Ave) a lot, the car parts are from ACCIDENTS!!! Get your road names correct. There are those that need to learn to drive better, but don't include everyone in your generic statements!!! I have never been involved in an accident - have you; Maybe One you caused and unwilling to admit??

You are the arrigant douche on this thread. Why should you want me to move, you came here I didn't!!!

It looks like you have chosen your own option 1 so the rest of us will not have to read your stupid rants. Cool option for you!!!

thats fine, you come heres keep driving like you do and keep putting up Jesus crosses on every tree, your numbers are shrinking.
Huh. To reiterate what I believed to be a very clear statement...my suggestion was that drivers MEET the posted speed limit, not exceed it. Tickets can actually be issued for those who drive below the limit...there is a reason and a logic behind the limits posted. As for "putting up Jesus crosses on every tree", not only have I never done such a thing, I have never noticed this plethora of come-here crosses you mention. I'm unclear as to the validity or the relevancy of your remark?

Three people have to be killed at an intersection before the State declares it dangerous enough for a traffic lght. Otherwis its just driver error
