Opposing d-bags

Here is d-bag number 1:

She is fully stopped, waiting for the light to change. Of course, it would never change if it wasn’t for all the other traffic triggering the signals. (That intersection is based on motion first, time second.) It’s bad driving for sure, but not as bad as this King of D-bags:

This is also at a red light. And I ask why? Just…why? Is it really that hard to drive decently? At least the woman wasn’t blocking anything, but this guy is right in the way of anyone taking a left from the right side of the picture. It’s just terrible driving. I can’t say I would feel bad if he got clipped by the back end of a semi-truck.

Thought of the day

I found out today that my tentatively planned trip to Haiti (it depends upon things getting approved on my university’s end) will involve the study of cholera as well as the two types of starvation in children, kwashiorkor and marasmus (the former involves a distended belly whereas the latter is emaciation). I don’t know much about either one, but I figured I would throw it up here in a post so I could at least have an easy way to get to the terms – “kwashiorkor” is not the easiest word to recall, after all.
