    People driving their vehicles around a bunch of people and playing crap, foul mouthed music. We wouldn't allow people to stand in the middle of the road and say mfer over and over....but with vehicles we just let people play music with 50 curse words in it around people who dont want to hear it. Highly disrespectful. And God forbid you say anything about it these days. Any type of push back toward the perpetrators and a person is racist towards certain music entertainers.

    Its been a while since I've ranted about the airlines...
    Why can't AI and machine learning rebook my flights for me.

    Airlines fly in rain storms (hell pilots hardly fly the planes anymore).

    And why the **** can they not get me from BOS to CLT without flying through ORD when things go sideways (see above).

    Bonus rant and answer: unions. Because a $$$$ing union slowdown with the machinist union that management can't get their **** together.

    **** you American Airlines!

    Ed/note for @Justin update the language sanitation script to scrub **** +ing

    I have a buddy that absolutely has the loudest sound system installed in an automobile. In high school he got into building isometric speaker boxes?, I think that's what ya call them. Anyway, he like to "bump" bluegrass while wearing earplugs when wanna be thugs insist on making everyone listen to their horrible music. Its lead to some pretty hilarious stories and even a few wanna be thugs have a realization mid run from Flatts & Scruggs.

    If y’all have a conceal carry, can’t you walk out with it ?

    In Florida we can.

    Not in IL, 3 day waiting period on both long guns and hand guns. Used to be 24 hours on long guns but they changed that 2 years ago I believe it was.

    There was talk aboit getting it changed for CCL holders, but saying and doing are two different things in Illinois.

    I had to go get a money order to pay for the 1957 Mercury lower unit I ordered from a guy on an old Mercury motor website and cash a check to get cash for my go fast boat, can't withdraw that kind of $ from an ATM

    Flew the last detection flight of the season today in a proper high winged plane, they expect us to navigate with an i pad, what a joke 4 G at 110 mph with a tailwind. I am buying my own GPS that is flight compatable.

    People who turn on their hazzard lights during a rain storm while driving down the road. It is my understanding that you use your hazard lights when in fact you are a hazard, like oh crap my car is having problems and I need to let all others know I'm a hazard that needs attention while I pull off the road. Not oh man, it's raining pretty hard and even though you are experiencing the same storm at the same time I feel the need to warn you that yes the roads are wet and I'm letting you know through my hazard lights.. no chit Sherlock.

    ****ty trip this week. I have to fly out this afternoon go thru the detroit airport (hate that airport) once there I have to do the hike from hell thru the tunnel to get the next flight to Albany. I land in Albany at 9:40 have to drive an hour after that to Glens Falls for a show that opens on Sunday evening. Then to top it off I land back at MSP at 5:00 Tuesday night so it will be a 2-1/2 hour drive from the airport.

    More like dumbfounded. We were all doing about 35mph down the interstate 60mph+ winds and 4" of rain in less than 45 minutes but thankfully 1 out of every 5 cars had their hazard lights on bc I would have no clue otherwise. I mean, I would have probably been doing 80mph if those peoples had not had hazard lights going..

    Stop in Saratoga Springs, go to Desperate Annie's and tell Izzy to give you a couple of beers on my tab. If he asks for the pass word to confirm, its "Loose Cannon", my old nickname..
