    apparently her stance is also down to the fact that she was born with severe hip dysplasia

    I'm dead certain watching footage of that feral kid completely changed everything for me but such a minuscule and seemingly inarticulable way that I'm definitely eventually going to write a tortured epistle to an ex-girlfriend (EM) about the pain of being a human being

    I'm real mad I didn't know they had hip dysplasia because that walk really enhanced the uncanniness of their entire existence

    i just hate driving i will teach you to drive in snow if you'll drive all the time afterward

    when i go to lunch at work i always make other people drive and they sort of scornfully tolerate it

    it's really not a big deal. you just drive more carefully. there's advice for what you do when you slide out, or whatever. but being able to recover from those is in part luck, based on the room you have to work with and the behavior of surrounding drivers. the a+ strategy is just to avoid losing traction in the first place and realistically you do that by driving carefully.

    i shouldn't say it's not a big deal. it can be scary, especially when visibility of lane markers and stuff is killed by snow. i just think that being extra cautious is 95% of the important skill you need to drive safely in bad weather. the 'tricks' aren't nearly as important as driving carefully.

    YES

    After a failed first mission due to a lack of RCS thrusters my second mission finally snagged this god damn fuel tank, with barely enough fuel to spare. Definitely using some kind of rover next time, my piloting skills aren't quite up to the task of guiding my malformed designs onto such a small target.

    But in my haste to add RCS thrusters on my second design, I forgot parachutes. So I ploughed into a hillside at 400 km/h, 30km away from Kerbal Space Center (by sheer luck). :rotate:

    But at least it was a graceful impact. I managed to balance my craft quite well, so I came in straight as an arrow.

    yeah i'd say slowness is the lion's share of it. drive slowly, err away from the right side of the road if visibility is low, and prepare for stops, yields etc way earlier than you otherwise would. just extreme caution.

    Snowing driving is about planning an patience. People who rush in snow ended up in the ditch.

    Also doesn't hurt to get some practice spinning out in an empty parking lot just to know the feeling of sliding and losing control in a safer setting so you don't panic when it really happens.

    1. Drive more carefully
    2. Try to keep your cool when you find out that carefully wasn't careful enough

    are really the tricks, yeah

    it's also 100% okay to not drive when it's icy out even if you have a shitty job where they might fire you

    better to be unemployed than in a hospital and/or sitting with a multiple thousand dollar bill (depending on deductible on your insurance) and possibly getting fired because you can't make it for the next few days now either

    from personal experience I would also add 3. however slippery you think that intersection is, it's worse

    basically the best way to counteract the sliding is counter-intuitive

    you want to not slam on your brakes and keep the wheels turning, essentially you want to try and go back up the hill if possible, like that one delivery vehicle did by turning into the lane (this is also why it's dangerous to go too slow in wintry conditions)

    I remember when I got in trouble for not coming in to work because of a blizzard and my boss was like "Well, Bob made it in and he lives 20 miles outside of the city!"

    And I had to patiently explain that Bob lives on a fucking highway that is constantly plowed throughout the blizzard and connects directly to the road our workplace is on which also happens to be an emergency snow route while I lived in a residential area three blocks from the nearest emergency snow route so while Bob certainly had to snowblow his longer than normal driveway, which he did using an atv, I would have had to shovel for three blocks and then remove a five foot fucking snow drift from the plows in order to get my car on to an emergency snow route.

    To which he replied "But still, 20 miles"

    My first winter snow driving in Seattle (it's a rarity), I lived in this apartment complex where I could either go in the front entrance and up a hill, or down a hill to the back entrance. Rather than struggle up the hill, I decided I'd risk the back entrance despite the steepness and icyness.

    As I came to the top of the hill, there was a car in front of me, so I stopped at the top to watch them go down, slowly sliding and trying not to fishtail. I was about to bail after watching them struggle, but then someone came up behind me, and there was no way they were stopping without running into me.

    So I went for it.

    I rolled down a bit, then gently braked... until the wheels locked and I started to spin. So I let up, pointed my nose, rolled straight, gently rebrake. Thus I went down the hill, rolling and sliding, barely keeping myself between the guy struggling ahead of me and the guy coming up far too quickly behind me. Somehow, I kept it all under control to the bottom and turned into the complex before getting rear-ended.



    Another time that same winter, I was driving to work in the morning, and came up to an intersection a bit too quick (that was entirely on me). I was going to make a right turn, and it was my green, but I couldn't slow enough and instead of turning, I just started sliding on course to smack the car waiting to make a left. He was looking me directly in the eyes, fear on his face.

    I did what any good Mario Kart player would do. I cranked the wheel hard and gunned it. I just barely managed to drag myself into turning with maybe a foot to spare.



    Bring on the snow, Seattle.

    I got the same spiel once

    I let them know their $9 an hour job wasn't worth my life or my property unless they were willing to sign an agreement to pay my deductible for when I got in an accident.

    I have no idea how it could be done, but institutionalizing everyone staying home when roads are garbage, unless they are part of essential services & thus are provided with vehicles that can handle the conditions, would be a pretty good bargain for most states.
