    Aren't radar detectors illegal there? I thought i remember seeing on one of the gumball videos people getting pulled over for them.

    Don't know about MD...but they are in VA.

    There is no passing in the left lane. They use it as the crusing lane. You can four lanes of traffic going in one direction and all four will have white Maryland license plates going neck and neck. When one finally gets past so that you can go around them, the jerk speeds up so that you can't pass them. . . then it starts all over again. Very agitating.

    No, and anyone else with something bad to say about my state will be dry humped at Polkfest.

    I unfortunately had to go to the Bahamas and I didn't see a single Polk speaker, so I killed a couple tourists from Canada. Don't worry, you wouldn't know them and I couldn't understand what they were saying at all.

    Well I'm certainly glad you were able to pull yourself away for a little bit last Saturday Mark!:D

    Granted it was shortlived & ended quickly, but it was better than nothing.:eek::D

    Trying to stay calm and not get all wound up......Tom, chill......10 Breaths.....calm down......it's OK. That said, I hear you Joe. Things like this is why I don't have a gun in the car. If I did, tire companies would hire me to increase business, 'cause I'd shoot every tire on the vehicles that did this. I have actually gone 95mph trying to pass this buttmunch that did the same thing, when he [while I couldn't pass him] was going 37-40 mph in a 65 w/ plenty of travel [10-12 car lengths, 20 car lengths at times] between him and the next car. OK, I lied. We topped 100mph when traffic started to separate a little bit more. Thank god I have a V8. As soon as I passed him, I saw a squirrel...hit the brakes hard, and proceeded to go 25 mph until he yielded. I then took off. He must have been a Maryland driver.

    Mark, wear something special for me. I'll wear my diapers just for you big guy. :D Nope, I don't have road rage, just common sense rage.

    I'd tell you all the story about what happened on 495 around DC one day, but some folks are still probably pissed off about being late for work. :p:D :eek:

    Whoa there Bro!!! I used to do that crap all the time then I saw it happen around me while driving going north on I95 by Chester PA, the two goof balls that were playing their stupid game had to be going well over 100, nicked each others left and right side and the car in the right lane went air born and came to a dead stop up-side-down on a overpass abuttment. It was very ugly. Everyone in that car was killed and the **** that cause the problem to begin with tried to keep going but there was a cop at the top of the overpass watching the whole thing.

    I felt for the people that were killed and all the people in snarled traffic a good five miles. As a matter of fact I95 northbound was backed up all the way from Chester to Wilmington DE.

    That incident made me calm down quite a bit when trying to get from point a to b especially after seeing what actually was the result on the news.

    well it's only January now.. so there is still plenty of time to work a PolkFest into your plans. ;)

    that being said.. if it's @ Polk headquarters... you DO NOT want to miss it. You will be kicking yourself for an entire year if you do. Beg, borrow and steal to get there. A couple of us made it to MD from the West coast in 05 and that's like 2300 miles each way :eek: surely those that are within driving distance have no excuse for missing it. :)

    According to Map Quest a one way trip from my house to head quarters is 8.42 miles. Anybody want to carpool.:D

    I just need a date, a time and 3/4 of a gallon of gas and I am there.
    I like speakers that are bigger than a small refrigerator but smaller than a big refrigerator:D

    Can't wait, just hope I'll be able to get the time off.
    So, are you willing to put forth a little effort or are you happy sitting in your skeptical poo pile?
