I was riding to work yesterday when I observed a
female driver cut right in front of a pickup truck,
causing him to have to drive on to the shoulder to
avoid hitting her. This evidently angered the driver
enough that he hung his arm out his window and
"flipped" the woman off.

"Man, that guy is stupid," I thought to myself. I
ALWAYS smile nicely and wave in a sheepish manner
whenever a female does anything to me in traffic, and
here's why:

I drive 48 miles each way every day to work. That's 96
miles each day. Of these, 16 miles each way is
bumper-to-bumper. Most of the bumper-to-bumper is on
an 8 lane highway.

There are 7 cars every 40 feet for 32 miles. That
works out to be 982 cars every mile, or 31,424 cars.

Even though the rest of the 32 miles is not
bumper-to-bumper, I figure I pass at least another
4000 cars. That brings the number to something like
36,000 cars that I pass every day.

Statistically, females drive half of these. That's
18,000 women drivers! In any given group of females, 1
in 28 has PMS. That's 642. According to Cosmopolitan,
70% describe their love life as dissatisfying or
unrewarding. That's 449.

According to the National Institutes of Health, 22% of
all females have seriously considered suicide or
homicide. That's 98. And 34% describe men as their
biggest problem. That's 33.

According to the National Rifle Association, 5% of all
females carry weapons, and this number is increasing.

That means that EVERY SINGLE DAY, I drive past at
least one female that has a lousy love life, thinks
men are her biggest problem, has seriously considered
suicide or homicide, has PMS, and is armed.

Flip one off? ....... I think not
