Why math is taught in school
> Written By A Very Wise Man
> I was riding to work yesterday when I observed a female driver cut right
> in front of a pickup truck, causing him to have to drive on to the
> shoulder to avoid hitting her. This evidently angered the
> driver enough that he hung his arm out his window and "flipped" the
> woman off. "Man, that guy is stupid,"
> I thought to myself. I ALWAYS smile nicely and wave in a sheepish manner
> whenever a female does anything to me in traffic, and here's why:
> 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
> is not bumper-to-bumper, I figure I pass at least
> 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,
> Flip one off? ....... I think not..

Good enough reason not to flip off my ex.
