Basically drive in a circle to confirm if they really are following you. If they’re still behind you after the last turn, don’t think twice, Immediately cal 911
I think about this sometimes. I know it has a term, but I can’t think of it offhand. It blows my mind sometimes. I let myself get into a rut where I only notice what is happening in my life. Then out of nowhere I wonder what the person I just passed on the sidewalk is up to. Or the person that just passed me on the highway. Are they going to work? I wonder what they do. Are they meeting friends? I wonder what their friend group is like, what do they do for fun? Are they on their way to meet their family? I wonder what kind of stories they will share.
I like to be hit by this out of the blue. It makes me realize that everyone is living their life, just like me.

Edit: I really did not expect this to blow up. I’m happy to see all of the great discussion!
I have a dashcam and sometimes I upload videos of dumb shit I see to YouTube.
Anyway, I was driving home from work a few days ago and saw a really expensive Audi cut across three lanes in one move, and cut into the exit lane I was in, barely squeezing in between me and the start of the barrier. I slammed the brakes, and there wasn't any accident but it shook me up. It was the closest call I've ever had.
The driver pulled off into a gas station and I pulled over by the side of the road so I could turn my dashcam and get a clear video of the driver's face as he pumped gas, so I could confirm his identity. I had been wanting to make a report for reckless driving because the guy had almost caused a really bad accident.
I had never reported something before, but this was probably the scariest close call I'd ever had and I thought it would be a good idea to.
I reported it to the police non emergency line, and they said they'd get back to me but I didn't hear anything yet. I also put t... keep reading on reddit ➡
Probably at least a third of all dashcam videos posted to /r/idiotsincars that involve a near-miss or crash could have been prevented if people had practiced defensive driving. As a note, defensive driving is not only following all road rules, but also accounting for the fact that other people are likely not going to follow them. While you can't prevent every accident, you can prevent a number of common accidents. As the common phrase goes, the cemetery is full of people who had the right-of-way.
Some defensive driving tips:
Before proceeding when the traffic light turns green, look both ways to make sure nobody is trying to run a red, even if it means waiting a full second after it turns green. When going through signals, if you can safely do so, try to at least glance at both directions to make sure nobody is approaching (this may not always be possible due to traffic or blind-spot reasons - your number one priority is keeping an eye on traffic and conditions on your roadway)
The amount of crashes you hear about where old people have accidentally planted the accelerator instead of the brake and ploughed into people/bulldings/vehicles, or are travelling at 20mph in a 40 and braking every slight corner, holding up the rest of the road.
I think every 2 years is a reasonable length of time to evaluate elderly people, and I also believe no one should drive over the age of 90. Reaction times are just too slow to be safe on the roads.
He rings the bell and the owner appears and tells him the dog is in the backyard.
The guy goes into the backyard and sees a nice looking Labrador retriever sitting there.
"You talk?" he asks.
"Yep," the Lab replies.
After the guy recovers from the shock of hearing a dog talk, he says "So, what's your story?"
The Lab looks up and says, "Well, I discovered that I could talk when I was pretty young. I wanted to help the government, so I told the CIA. In no time at all they had me jetting from country to country, sitting in rooms with spies and world leaders, because no one figured a dog would be eavesdropping.
"I was one of their most valuable spies for eight years running. But the jetting around really tired me out, and I knew I wasn't getting any younger so I decided to settle down. I signed up for a job at the airport to do some undercover security, wandering near suspicious characters and listening in. I uncovered some incredible dealings and was awarded a batch of medals.

Edit: Guys, please don’t blow up my DMs asking for recommendations. I’ve gotten a few hundred now and I don’t feel good about sending links to you all. This isn’t supposed to be an ad, this was supposed to be something you can use as a reference when researching a dash cam. I guarantee almost every dash cam with good ratings will be a good fit for you. Okay back to the post!
An old coworker told me an story about an accident that totaled his truck a while ago. He went through a greenlight, and a lady ran a red and t-boned him, totaling his truck. She paid off a witness at the bus stop and it was basically those two against his word. Fortunately, the bus was coming behind and caught the accident on it's cam. He tracked the bus down, and was able to get the footage from the bus and saved himself from jacked up premiums.
Here's some advice on picking a dash cam, and towards the bottom there will be some helpful advice on installing a dash cam legally. You heard that, there's a legal an... keep reading on reddit ➡
I'm on board with Elon to accelerate not just the goal of sustainable energy, but the race to achieve full self-driving. I think they'll do it sooner or later, and are leading the way in this technology.
However, I tend to think Elon's time scale for this (like the full automation of the gigafactory) is a little optimistic. I think we're looking at more like a decade or two rather than years away. Regulations also hamper efforts (at least in Europe) to get this out on the roads any time soon.
For that reason, I am asking Elon and Tesla to sell the FSD option as a lifetime license that's attached to the user, and not one that simply dies with the car. If I need to scrap or sell my Model 3 in 15-20 years, and FSD comes out around that time, then I have wasted £5800 on a feature which is next to useless currently (especially as regular self-driving is already so useful).
I am very happy to pay well in advance for a feature I won't yet have, but I'm not prepared to risk money on somethi... keep reading on reddit ➡
I was stuck behind a beat up fiesta for 8 minutes on a round about, no indicators. The fella didn’t want to go. Atleast 13 opportunities to make a move. 13. Oh and they only went and stalled as soon as they made a move.
She lives in the country and was out of the house for brunch that day, so of course I assumed that she must have arrived to her home to find it ruined. We freaked out and assumed the worst, because she lives alone and is far away from most resources. She was watching our dog for us and we felt sick to our stomachs knowing that he might be gone, or that she was hurt.
She eventually called us back on FaceTime and reassured us that it was a joke, but of course we were livid - insults were thrown, and she still hasn't talked to us or even apologized. She seems upset that our opinions differ and wanted to prove a point, is what I gathered from our interaction?
When we got there and she was laughing her butt off with my SIL. We just grabbed our dog, left and made it clear that she's never dog sitting again.
Like... What? AITA? Am I missing something? Did I go too far? Isn't her behavior... weird? Innapropriate? I love my MIL, but the prank was unnecessary and it hurts that she hasn't r... keep reading on reddit ➡
UPDATE: So - my main issue wasn't actually lack of sex, it was the frustration of feeling like if I initiate it won't work, so I have to wait for him. I spoke to him about the issue and he explained that I often don't pick very good moments. For example, I'd initiate when he's stressed about a project or full up from eating a big meal. He says that he chooses the right moment to initiate and that's why it seems like we only have sex if he initiates. I do have a slightly higher sex drive so we're going to start planning sex time. This is another example of just communicate with your partner! The lesson I learn time and time again is to keep nothing to yourself in a relationship. Thanks for your responses :)
I stopped initiating a while ago because getting turned down makes me feel so awful. I have a higher sex drive than him so more often then not, he’s not in the mood and I end up feeling rejected and upset.
I’m sure loads of people have this problem too. The person with the lower... keep reading on reddit ➡

UPDATE: Sorry for my absence! Things have been crazy... I have a 2 and 3 year old AND stuff has been... weird... here. On a whim born of freaked out desperation, I found the office number for a very well known person in the paranormal field. It was the first name that popped in my head... I've been reading their work and watching them on TV since high school. I left an awkward voicemail and figured I'd never hear back but thought it was worth a shot under the circumstance... THEY CALLED ME BACK YA'LL. I still can't believe it. Gave them the full run down and they are going to help me. We don't have the full plan mapped out yet but they have been checking in on me by phone and gave me some stop gap/ precautionary things to do. I'm profoundly relieved that I have someone who does this for a living in my corner. I still can NOT believe they called me back....
