    and haunting the roads of the Northern Beaches.

    Interesting morning last week.

    On my way to a customer's place at around 06:10 (I have keys) in the
    cage turning right from Warringah Road onto the Wakehurst Parkway.

    I'm in the main lane (the one that doesn't run out around the corner)
    with a ute in front of me.

    Lights change and we proceed around the corner. Just as we get to the
    part where the left hand lane runs out, I look in my left mirror and see
    a small dark hatchback come screming along the end of the left hand lane
    trying to push his way past me (there's no road by now - just the edge
    strip). I put my hand on my horn thinking very quickly "What the!" when
    he slams into the side of my car and bounces me onto the opposite side
    of the road into the path of an oncoming car. I just have enough time to
    slew back into my lane and stop as the adrenalin kicks in.

    This arsewipe (by now some 40 or 50 metres away) stops momentarily, sees
    me move forward again and takes off like the proverbial scalded cat,
    overtaking everything in his path, crossing back and forth on double
    white lines and almost taking out a few more people coming in the
    opposite direction.

    I tried to get near him to get his plate but the little shit lost me
    around Seaforth (a Suzuki Sierra is not built for high speed pursuit).

    Only did a couple of hundred damage to "El Burro" but save me from
    having to buy coffee that morning (couldn't have been more awake)!

    get anything from the plate ?

    All this would stop if all cars were fitted with forward-facing
    quad-M60s mounted under the bonnet. Instead of hitting the horn you'd
    hit the "fire" button and watch the idiot disintegrate right in front
    of your eyes. I dream... Dreaming's good... :)

    I rang the police assistance line as soon as I got to the destination.

    Dark (6:10am)
    Dark Coloured hatch
    No plate visible
    No one stopped (did I dream the whole thing?)

    I'm going to let it go. I've had enough sh*t in the last few years - I
    don't need something else for my subconscious to chew on.

    But I am watching........

    Holy shit - glad you're ok! I suppose you didn't get a look at
    aforementioned arsewipe as he/she walloped you? I'm just wondering what sort
    of fuckwit drives like that, and why? People with that sort of deathwish
    should have it fulfilled without taking anybody else with them.

    Have come across similar behaviours in Canberra - thankfully very rarely -
    one of the last times I saw it, one of the young street-racers (racing
    through regular daytime traffic against a similarly moronic peer in a
    similarly overpowered car) wrapped himself around a pole a kilometre or so
    later. Was a 17 year-old kid who wasn't as bulletproof as he thought.
    Imagine being his mum <shudder>.

    Anyway - glad you're ok. Nerve-settling tequila? <curtsey>

    That's really fucked. Glad you weren't hurt - cars can be repaired but
    people are a bit more work.

    Based on your last line I present this : http://tinyurl.com/44k7xmc

    Removed the bits at the end until the URL makes sense then try again (ie
    take the "3F1303760895" off)

    On second thoughts, given that most applications of "the device" would
    be best performed at tail-gating distance, I think 4 x M60s arranged
    in a horizontal line would have a better strike pattern. :))))

  15. I'd bet money it was either stolen or a 16 year old with no licence.

    Oh, damn. Basically it's a pic of a cranky looking cat, staring at a
    little shit of a dog, with the heading of "soon".

    Hopefully this'll work
