    No wait.


    That doesn't work.


    In fact that whole Dark Knight quote doesn't make any sense at all.

    Yes.

    What the HELL is it saying?

    Man don't think about Nolan Batman movies. You'll regret it.

    I have thought about it and concluded that the Dark Knight Rises was idiotic

    It was terrible along with the previous two movies.

    Whenever [chat] starts holing itself up in a compound in Colorado, I elect somebody drive me everywhere because I am not used to driving in the snow.

    when it snows and people call out because of it, we have one of the employees who has a big, hefty truck drive around and pick them up

    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"

    we had some real bad snow last year when i was working in the next city down, closer to boulder/denver. i went out and started shoveling 3 hours in advance. drove like 30 on a 65 with everyone else. i got to work on time. my boss saw me and boggled and was like, how the hell did you get here? you came in? i didn't expect you to come in

    it was totally dead at work because of the heavy snow and since i'd just exhibited a lot of dedication by making the drive, i got to do anything i wanted that day. i was untouchable.

    glorious day

    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 took a picture of my bus sitting sideways in the road near my bus stop and e-mailed it to my boss with the subject line "Not coming in today (eom)"

    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.

    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

    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.

    yeah they will issue states of emergency up here in NY when it's that bad

    they've closed highways and told people to turn around

    which means "go stay in a hotel, it's not going to get better before tomorrow"

    not a doctor, not a lawyer, examples I use may not be fully researched so don't take out of context plz, don't @ me

    we also have a slightly more structured version of that mandated as part of our driver's ed

    slightly, we had a lot of time to spare so my driving instructor just had me try to make the car do 720s after a while.


    but anyway yeah, practice driving on ice (by which I mean, practice losing control on ice) before you have to drive on ice one day.

    I think this is part of the problem in places like Seattle. It's rare enough that most people never even get the opportunity to practice.

    Snow driving isn't as dangerous as people make it out to be, as long as you remain aware of your surroundings and don't get between the snow and its cubs you're fine.

    I'm pretty sure they only mention Cup Noodles when you first see the stand, in the one sidequest, or if you actually eat them.

    Not that it's not still kind of weird product placement, but you see Coleman more than you see Cup Noodles.

    it's also super fun

    from 16 to 18 when I was on my learner's permit, every time the ice came me and my dad would cruise around for parking lots without dividers, preferably where no cars had yet been

    ice like a mirror, nissan spinning wildly around in the wee hours of the day

    This is exactly what my mom did when I was 15 with my learner's permit.

    Yeah we were driving with chains on, back from town. The snow had piled up in our rental house's driveway and we misjudged just how much snow there was. Drove into a small snowbank and lost traction.

    My first day at my current job, it was a blizzard, and most people didn't come in. But at the time, I was living with my parents who were like, literally across the parking lot from there. So I spent most of the day... not doing stuff but still at work getting paid.
