Ah come on....for some of us that means spring is in the air and that we are riding some of the finest dirt backroads in Quebec. Not me anymore but some of us....! Calisse and my grandpa would have said "Sirop noir !!!", that was his swear. Black syrup and what happens when you overcook the syrup. Does stink for sure...!Ostie!

In Thailand,smelling Garlic meant slow down, there is a truck loaded with it just ahead and he is probably going much slower that you.Calisse!

I work with smells a lot...on the road also, burned brakes, rubber....oils. All possible hazards ahead.Crisse!

I think I'll take my water cooled 1200 up the hills in a few minutes, smelled like snow this morning down here.....Tabarnak!

Criss de calisse d'ostie de st-ciboire de maudit tabarnacle....ooops!

Pissed Stupid Cagers, TABERNAK

We're WAY off topic here...

So I'll be (uncharacteristically) brief.

der saeufer means "the drinker", but comes off more like "Alkie"

I warned him not to drink anti-freeze, referring to the Austrian anti-freeze wine-sweetening

scandal a few years back.

H96669 et al are using Quebec swearing slang, all church derived.

TABERNAK is about the equivalent of "f*ck", but translates directly to "tabernacle",

which is some church thing.

Eng swear words are mostly visceral; being sex and elimination based.

Apparently, how a society swears reveals lots about its history, hang ups, etc.

IN A MORE THREAD RELATED MATTER:

On the way to an emergency dental visit two hours ago, I saw a pedestrian get thrown

up and over a left hand turning car.

I was first in line, and didn't notice a thing till I saw a body flying upwards.

Stupid car had turned left into the THIRD available lane, not the very first one, as is the law.

He'll be charged for sure.

Lots of people rushed to help, and the perpetrator stopped.

( And a car blocked his escape route JIC...)

She bounced right back up, but the construction workers and tow truck guy all seemed to be

convincing her to wait for the first responders.

Hope she's gonna be fine.

Sore for sure...

Rode ever so carefully the rest of the way to the dentist.

The shit is going to hit the......

Yesterday at 5:00am on my way into work I come up on a chevy truck transporting a port-a-potty going kind of slow so I pass, nice and legal and within the speed limit. The next think I know the truck with port-a-potty has sped up and is on my ass. I speed up, he speeds up, I make a turn, he makes a turn. I was having a hard time getting away from this guy because I kept hitting red lights. I make my final turn towards work where there are no lights and finally lose him. I can’t tell you all how funny it is to be chased down by a port-a-potty.

This morning, on the A46. I was entering the highway from the A3. There is a long acceleration lane, and usually cars stay in it until the dotted line comes up to move over. I waited, rolling along in traffic, perfectly normal morning. I moved over when I hit the dots and was watching the lane to the left to move over and checking behind me to see if anything was backing up or inattentive.

Space opened up, and just as I formulated the idea to move over, this stupid E-Class wagon (black) comes right up next to me on the right and starts moving over into me - he got within a half-meter of my right box. I slowed to fit into my slot on the left and looked at the guy. He had this OMG! I almost killed someone! Oh shit! look that was incredible. Suit and tie, gelled hair, all in his employer-provided salesmobile. I bet that would have been a bitch to explain to the transit office. I waved at him, I doubt he could see much other than my pissed off eyes through my visor, though.

I left him behind. It was weird.

On Friday I saw a guy on a scooter stop at a light, hop off his scoot, put the center stand down, hop on the scoot, sit at the light with the stand down, hop off the scoot as the light changed, kick the side of the scoot, then take the scoot off the stand, hop back on the scoot and then go through the intersection...weird

Some A8 with filter rage. He had his rightmost windshield washer nozzle pointed to hit people filtering. My visor was down and it was raining. No fucks given.

Maybe he was just trying to be helpful and wash the road grime off your visor...

your evaluation is more likely though

Mirror adjustments may be warrented but are NEVER a good idea.

It shows a serious lack of intelligence to pick a fight with 4000lbs. of rolling steel.

NEVER let the Bastards Grind You Down.

Avoid them, laugh at them and RIDE HOME HAPPY.

This morning on the way to work, on a two-lane road, with a double yellow "no passing" line, 45 mph speedlimit...Little Kia Soul comes riding up my ass and then whips past me on the double yellow. Some little chica with a cell phone jammed in her ear. Great.

Watching her as she gets ahead, riding up peoples asses then passing them, only to race up to the next vehicle and repeat. I'm just waiting, expecting her to meet an oncoming car and thinking what an idiot she is and why is there never a cop around when you need one.

I watched as she ran up on the ass of the lead vehicle leading the morning commute parade...passed him on the double yellow heading up the hill.....only to see the unmarked police car she had just passed light up his flashers and pull her over....EPIC WIN!!!
