    CBS News.

    I loved Scott Pelly, I got used to and liked Jeff Glor though I thought Scott got the shaft but then Jeff got the shaft and now they have Norah O'Donnell who is HORRIBLE. If they wanted to go with a female both Reena Ninan and Elaine Quijano are 10x better than her.

    Don't get me wrong, I think she seems nice and in the right setting she would do well but IMO she is not network news anchor material. Her delivery/cadence is off, she frequently misspeaks (reads the teleprompter wrong) and her voice just doesn't do it for me.

    She's great compared to David Begnaud on the weekends. Send that guy back to small market local news where he can report car crashes and shootings.
    I'm getting increasingly annoyed by PBS news. While I share the general politics of the broadcast the content is increasingly editorial and decreasingly news, with a heavy emphasis on sob stories. Those stories do matter because they show the human consequences of political actions but when they come to dominate the broadcast they lose even their natural audience.

    People that get over a mile before a lane closure and leave an empty lane for a mile making problem way worse. I'll never understand

    I don't get that either. Merge at the merging point, not some random spot in the middle of the road. I feel guilty blowing by people, but wtf. I care less and less the more often it happens. It's just nice when others follow.

    We have a Y intersection right after the toll and the lane turning left gets backed up sometimes. It is more than wide enough for two cars to comfortably merge, yet people form a single line and the traffic backs up right into the toll, so others taking the right turn at the Y cannot get thru. Mind boggling.

    Heading northbound into Seattle on I-5 there's a lefthand exit for the express lanes. This lane is carpool only until maybe a mile and half before the exit and, of course, everyone merges into the far left lane as soon as the carpool restriction ends, thus slowing down traffic drastically in that lane. It used to be you could reliably get right up to the exit and then get over into the left lane, but sometime in the past few weeks the DOT painted new solid lines about 1/4 mile from the exit thus preventing anyone from (legally) entering that lane past that point. Seems to be completely counter to the "zipper merge" philosophy that is otherwise advocated. Fuckers.

    edit: turns out the change was made last November: https://www.wsdot.wa.gov/news/2018/1...lanes-entrance

    US 202 south of Augusta, ME has "alternate merge" signs prominently displayed in places where two lanes collapse into one. I still saw folks jumping in the left lane early and reluctantly letting me merge when I followed the instructions on the sign.

    I'm in the middle lane, car in the right is a couple of car lengths behind me (the warning light on the passenger side mirror isn't lit) and going the same speed. Just before the right lane merges into the middle she suddenly floors it so she's about 2 feet ahead and I have to slam on the brakes and swerve left to keep from hitting her. I'm still trying to figure out what might have been going through her mind, other than deliberately being an asshole. The next time she decides to be an asshole it might be smarter to do it where there isn't a traffic camera.

    People do. And read newspapers. And magazines. Maybe if fewer people got their news from Facebook we'd all be better off.

    What would it take to get Purina kicked out of Denver?
    Fucking Southwesterly anomalous winds.
    Only smell it a few days a year but fuck.
    Entire city property value would raise 10% if we kick them out.

    In a hotel and this fucking light won’t shut off.

    Literally looked everywhere, even peaked up at the top and it looked hard wired. Thought there’s no way you have to climb on top of the bed to shut the light off. I must be missing it. Finally call the front desk. He looks everywhere for 5 minutes. We both stand up on the bed and there’s a fucking pull chain on one side of this light.

    PLEASE tell me you swapped those misplaced tiles with the right ones before laying them. That would drive me freaking nuts too.

    So true. Lots of funny insurance company commercials on TV nowadays, but these ain't it.
    And it shows how much money these companies make that there are so many of them.
    My wife is in the insurances business so I'll say no more.
