169% OWNED!!!

Is it just me, or was the moron quotient a little higher than usual this morning? It seems that over the last few days, everyone in this city has taken leave of what little sense they ever had. I suspect things will return to what passes for normal at some point in the future, but until then, I'm left to watch and observe these great feats which give new meaning to the term "Vacuous".

Take one particular idiot this morning, who decided that he didn't want to wait for a red light to change. Because the traffic on that particular intersection at the time wasn't conducive to running the red light directly, he made a left turn, followed by a U-turn, followed by another left turn, actually running two red lights in the process. Then he really stepped on the gas, only to be stopped by the gridlock 100 metres or so up the road. Of course, when the light eventually changed, I caught and passed him effortlessly on my bike, but the most satisfying part of this equation was the fact that he appeared to have spent a lot of money on the ability to go really really fast in that car, and even after running two red lights, he was just as stuck as the rest of the suckers!!!

I think I'm beginning to understand why Gold Coast police never do anything about red light runners now. Being as stupid as this guy was must surely be punishment enough.

I pwn.
