There are two surfaces where you stop better without ABS.
That's why you can turn it off.


High nperformance dry weather tires brake better in the rain than "all weather" tires.



If you don't know where the front end of your whatever is within a foot, you should be off the road until you learn.
Stopping short at intersections puts everyone at risk, and will get you a big dent in the rear of your car.

The worst offenders I see, have already been hit before.

I actually passed someone that was stopped and pulled in front of them, there was that much space.
sometimes I can't tell if people can't drive or have broken down.

Occasionally taking your headphones and putting them on the other way (180 degrees rotation), helps them keep that "deep sound feeling" that is so important to your auditory experience.

Wow I didn't read that correctly at all. My brain filled in the first name with Martin instead of Malcom...I feel a little brain damaged currently.

Your batteries will last longer if you put them in the fridge.

Mind you, the fridge doesn't use batteries, and who wants to climb into the fridge to listen to the radio...

If you going to shave you head for Burning Man, do it early enough to give your scalp time to tan.
