Tuesday Hatred: Als wäre die Musik im Schaltplan des Radios

Frankly, I haven’t got the energy to hate anything. Well: I hate the fact that stress etc. invariably leads to complete inability on my part to regulate my eating.

I also hate the fact that I’m missing the Sonic Circuits festival in D.C. Fucking Magma’s playing, and I’m missing it!

Magma!

  1. I hate insect bites, especially flea bites. Somehow I got fleabit yesterday and now I have a case of the blisters. I also hate getting sunburnt.

    I hate that they stopped selling my brand of cigarettes in the U.S., which, what the hell? It is the No. 1 Brand of Charcoal Cigarettes in the World, or so I am told by its packaging. I hate American Spirits, which is what everyone else I know seems to smoke.

    I hate that the network WordPerfect crashed today and disappeared my document, which is due tomorrow. No actually I take that back. Truthfully I kind of like having a technological fuckup at work from time to time — they are among the few things that necessitate a slowdown in the pace of production, and better yet they are indisputably not my fault. It’s like a snow day. I’d probably feel differently if I worked for myself, or if I cared more.

    I kind of hate that I don’t care more.

  2. i would like to complain about the people crossing the street diagonally and the cars standing in the second lane or coming from the opposite and turning left simultaneously when i turn right, can’t they wait a bit, what’s the hurry the street is narrow and no need it seems to signal loudly stressing me further, must be i’m turning too slowly

  4. Presumably if they have the right to make a left turn when you must be stopped, then it is either their obligation to clear the intersection because the light has turned or they have a protected left. In either case, you have to wait. But, you are right, diagonal pedestrians are terrible. I always cross in a straight line, why can’t you?

  5. thanks, there are many points unclear to me and reading the driver’s manual could be intimidating, a lot of scary situations explained, but should learn them however it’s difficult
    if the street has two lanes it seems no problem to turn for them and me at the same time, but in one lane i should wait them i got it
    only two horns signalled at me this morning so far, due to me being slow moving i guess

  6. You are right. When there are two lanes, each car turning should turn into the equivalent however.

    If it is red for you and the left-turning car, then the left-turning car is obliged to clear the intersection so as to enable traffic to pass through. You should let the left-turning car make the turn.

    If it is red in all directions, but a protected left turn, then you should let the left-turning car make the turn.

    Obviously, you should turn in to the inner lane and the other car should turn in to the outer lane. However, you can’t predict the behavior of other people when cars are involved. If you aren’t sure, yield.

    Pedestrians crossing against the light are fair game. However, cars cutting into pedestrians who have the right of way are, in my view, fair game as well. Feel free to kick them, punch them, key them, whatever–but expect the other person to want to fight.

  7. very nice, it’s so helpful, thanks
    everyday something happens on the road, an ambulance would rush after me and me trying to yield to the nearest spot or the other day i realized i was half on the way of the light train when waiting for the green light, but luckily the train also stops at the intersection
    so it’s interesting though stressful for me by now, and i thought to eat something before leaving, then the uneasy feeling in the stomach is lighter, it seems that stress just exacerbates the hungry feeling
