    None of you can speak proper English. Heat packing or not.

    Cuse me pleeze, but in New york, and especially Astoria, auto horns are used constantly, at least 500 to one in California.

    It amazed me to watch, and not see a shoot out in NYC. Here, with a gun in evey car, every third driver would have a hole in his palms.

    Yep, NYC is a noisy place. I moved into the suburbs (50 miles out) over 40 years ago. Now traffic here is awful too, but the horn blowing, not bad at all.

    That's why you stick out like a sore thumb when you talk. People just hear you speak and assume you are a pompous ass (or as you may say arse) as soon as you say a few words.

    You very rarely hear a car horn blowing around here.

    But on weekends you hear a lot of gun shots from people practicing for their drive to work on Monday.
    Theory only works perfect in a vacuum.

    I'm not sure if my horn even works. With the airbag, one cannot just go for the centre. By the time I find the right place to push, whatever reason I may have had to sound the horn, will have passed.

    Default 11 wounded as gunfire erupts at Kent car show

    http://seattletimes.nwsource.com/htm...ooting24m.html

    At least 11 people were shot at a crowded lowrider car show in Kent on Saturday, creating chaos as cars sped from the scene and frightened spectators ran for the safety of nearby shops.
    Patrons and employees in the stores and restaurants locked the doors and crouched in backrooms to escape the gunfire.

    Washington seems to be in the headlines a lot lately, is there something in the water? I think I would be looking to make a move.

    That Washington is, of course, not the real Washington.

    I live in the real Washington and I would like to see taxpayers create more jobs here.
