Nirvana on the Freeway

Another interesting article concerning traffic congestion suggests that certain traffic densities "transform the whole mess into a state of crystalline harmony". However, this state is extremely sensitive, which probably explains why I have never witnessed said "crystalline harmony" in traffic.

I know this whole traffic jam situation seems hopeless, but this guy claims there is hope and he goes into fairly deep detail about the whole situation. This article is excellent, and I even tried some of his "solutions" and they appeared to get me to my destination quicker than usual, though I really fail to see how my driving can affect the people in front of me (though I can see that the people behind me are in a state of uniform movement, which is pretty damn cool).

Some things I noticed people doing in their cars while waiting at the Tollbooths of the PA Turnpike:
  • Playing with something hanging off their rearview mirror
  • Dancing retardedly to their stupid music (wich is being played way to loud)
  • Reading a novel
  • Washing off their windshield
  • Picking their nose (my personal favourite)
So the next time you get stuck in traffic and feel the compulsive need to pick your nose, remember, people can see through your windows. Then pick your nose anyway.
