That's right. They want me dead.

I was driving the Buick tonight on the interstate. I foolishly set the cruise to 70mph, dangling my two index fingers on the wheel while I listened to The Supremes on 103.3, the oldies station.

The car gently rocked me back and forth in total comfort and quiet until I dozed off and ended up in the shoulder. The rumble strips woke me up.

Here's the funny part: I WASN'T TIRED. I got more than eight hours of regular sleep the night before. That freaking 'Dynaride' is like a Sudafed. The last car that made me this nappy was the '98 LS400, but it wasn't as severe. While it didn't rock back and forth or up and down, the heavy sound deadening and superb seat comfort put me in a mild state of hypnosis.

I once yelled "GET A CAR!" to a late night cyclist in Tampa who was blocking my lane. He yelled back, "I AM!"

Damn, Jesda, you need to get rich enough to hire a chauffeur. If the cars don't kill you, you kill the cars.

If you get down to Oregon the next time you're in the Pacific Northwest, I'll gladly take you for a ride in Betty, but no way in hell are you getting behind the wheel. You're automotive poison!

OMFG! LMFAO! That is awesome!

Hey I wrecked a car falling asleep at the wheel in the middle of the day. Just went into a ditch. Found out I had the Apnea, never would have know it. The Navy made me get tested after that. I thought you had to be overweight to have it. Not true. It is more common in over weight folks, at least that is what they told me. At the time I was 160 lbs. I was waking up like 120 times a night.

You should get checked man. I sleep with a mask now, but it awesome. I wake up and feel awesome!

Jesda, try a Morgan! That should be a solution to falling asleep while driving.

Maybe it's all those aroma therapy candles in the car.

Try masturbating while driving. You win either way!

An uncle of mine put a Continental Mark IV into a cornfield once for the same reason. Car was so damn comfortable and silent he fell asleep and whammy!

Just take the car to an open field and shoot it. That goes for any car you ever get in the future as well. Kill it before you have the accident. :bouncy:
