hitting or slapping a car with your hand
is a bad idea-and claiming your reflexes got the best of you-what the heck??
grow up-
report it to cops or just ignore it-
life is short
a low life sob here in NOLA is in jail for a road rage murder-two fools got together-one is dead
people will shoot you for a minor seeming road interaction
only a fool would hit a car with his hand-

WIDE BERTH is good advice-in every respect

Yeah I bet you're just perfect when you ride!

"Grow up." Sure, dad.

If the driver carries a machete, carry a coconut or small side of beef for safety.


Seriously, this is like mosquito netting for incoming missiles.

Well, that rules out strapping a Sicilian to the rack.

When I read stories like this now and experience bizarre fits of rage, I just think we are a bunch of monkeys who can't quite get past the red fog of, "The apes from my tree are superior to the apes from your tree." If we can just get past this little hurdle, our species might be more kind to itself.

EDIT: Oh and I love love love when the thread gets straight to the point of someone writing a three paragraph essay with embedded youtube video about what a person with a knife on foot can accomplish against three armed police officers. Because that's, like, exactly the same thing. And like nobody in the world knows knives are dangerous. Except for that one guy who for some reason has to explain it with a page of text and a video each time.

Knifesplaining. Can that be a word?

And another thread descends into silliness. Comparing slapping a car to Nazi activities? Totally too bizarre.

Nobody made a You Tube Hitler video yet. I looked on YT and it seems that Hitler has a VEVO channel?
