    > I drive 48 miles each way every day to work. That's 96 miles each day.
    > Of these, 16 miles each way is bumper-to-bumper.
    > Most of the bumper-to-bumper is on an 8 lane highway.
    > There are 7 cars every 40 feet for 32 miles. That works out to be 982
    > cars every mile, or 31,424 cars. Even though the ! rest of the 32 miles

    > another 4000 cars.
    > That brings the number to something like 36,000 cars that I pass every
    > day.
    > Statistically, females drive half of these.
    > That's 18,000 women drivers!
    > In any given group of females, 1 in 28 has PMS. That's 642. According to
    > Cosmopolitan, 70% describe their love life as dissatisfying or
    > unrewarding.
    > That's 449. According to the National Institute of Health, 22% of all
    > females have seriously considered suicide or homicide. That's 98.
    > And 34% describe men as their biggest problem. That's 33.
    > According to the National Rifle Association, 5% of all females carry
    > weapons, and this number is increasing.
    > That means that EVERY SINGLE DAY,
    > I drive past at least one female that
    > has a lousy love life, thinks men are her biggest problem, has seriously
    > considered suicide or homicide, has PMS,
    > AND IS ARMED! !
    > Flip one off? ....... I think not..
