AARRGGGGHHH!!!!

The guy that actually uses the empty lane is the intelligent guy, don't you get that? Read the links I provided and I guarantee the light bulb will go on for you. Here's a simple Google search https://www.google.com/#q=zipper+merge

If one guy has the balls to challenge you lemmings lined up at a standstill, the smartest thing you can do is jump in right behind him.

Don't you get it? Bam, two cars, only two cars get moving, and bam traffic is moving again.

The object in a merge is to CREATE GAPS. Not close off gaps. You don't even realize you're actually slowing yourself down.

Seems you are comparing two things differently. While you are correct on this one, you are not comparing my example or others correctly. Driving on the merged lane now turned into an emergency lane isn't some guy doing it correctly. A guy getting out of your lane to go 40 yards and then stop the other lanes traffic to pull back into your lane isn't zipper merge. Here is the link for the state that does this. I was wrong thinking it was Washington when it was in fact Minnesota. You could see the easy mistake

I see what you, calijohn, etc are saying, and I don't even worry about those guys. If they want the spot that bad, they can have it. Maybe the guy has to take a ripping piss, I don't know.

What pisses me off is when people line up in one-****ing-lane, then get all pissed off when I use the empty lane. I try to get traffic moving again, and hopefully you get some people to team up with you to create some gaps.

But then you have the lane-blockers. They that contrary to all common sense, stayed in the blocked lane for ten minutes at a standstill, didn't jump into the empty lane, and to top it off, deliberately STOP traffic by blocking gaps, even block the "empty lane".

Every time I merge my object is to create gaps, therefore traffic gets moving. The sad thing is it's pretty rare to see that. Maybe out of 100 cars, you'll see 15 that understand how to merge. It's a rare and beautiful thing when you luck out and get maybe eight out of ten people that understand how to merge, work together to create gaps, and bam, all of a sudden a standstill gets moving again.

Probably been mentioned;

Car sound systems with bass speakers so big they need to be trailered behind the car playing the worse crap in the in the world at rock concert volume.

Honestly if I am driving in California and find myself stuck at a light beside one of these I fear the vibration will set off the San Andreas Fault.

This has probably already been mentioned but when you are ready to get your nutrients from the sun rays but it is cloudy and rainy outside and therefore you have to eat some parsley and brussel sprouts instead. Totally irks me.

The weeds and weed bushes of Colorado! The ****ing weeds are already three feet tall and Spring hasn't even got going. I swear, Colorado grows the best weeds on Earth. I hacked back these weed bushes along my house last year to the ground and they're now three feet tall! Amazing.

Even a goat wouldn't eat the bush I just chopped down. It gives off this intense chemical stink. I had to shower and change after chopping it out. No wonder nothing will grow within ten feet of it.

The inevitable bull**** stories people make up to explain why they have something stuck in their rectum. "I fell on it in the shower" is pretty common. I tell them I hear lies like that every time. They usually never say another word. I like to think we are both equally pissed off at each other at that point.

I do wonder though, do you ever get someone honest enough to say, "yeah I am a kinky freak and I sometimes get werid stuff stuck in my rectum. Or I am so desperate for love and acceptance I would allow my boyfriend to stick a VW bug up my arse to make him happy."

Nope. It is always something fantastical and statistically improbable.
