There are plenty of bad drivers in Detroit, and I had the opportunity to experience a moron today.

I was taking what is called a Michigan left: a Michigan left is where you can't turn left at most lights, you must go beyond the left and there is a U-turn in the median. No big deal, but its annoying when you want to turn left I was sitting on the U-turn at a red light on the inside lane. The inside lane was clear and I started to pull out and at the last second when I was in the lane a school bus changed lanes into my lane. It caught me completely off guard and I let off the clutch to early and my car started shaking about to stall. If I stalled the bus would hit me at 50 mph. I slammed the clutch in and the car came back to life, dropped it into first floored it. I changed lanes and the bus blew by. I could not believe it. The driver watched me pulling in the lane and decided to switch into my lane, then proceed to go 50 less than a hundred feet from a car that was going not even 20.

Sorry I don't like when people drive big vehicles that don't know how to drive!

Well that was my random story of the day. I hope you enjoyed it!

The densest species of wood is Ligum Vitae. One cubic foot of Ligum Vitae 12"x12"x12") weighs 80 lbs. By comparison, a cubic foot of water weighs 62.5 lbs so if you were to throw a block of Ligum Vitae into the lake it would sink like a rock.

Balsa is the lightest wood at 8 lbs per cubic foot. If you were to throw a block of Balsa into the lake, 87% of it would stay dry.

Shortest lifespan - The male Acarophenax tribolii mite hatches while still inside its mother, then impregnates its sisters and dies before birth.

President Van Buren, the 8th US president 1837-41, was the first President born an American citizen. All previous Presidents were born English citizens, while the colonies still belonged to Great Britain.
