We could make him so fat he damages his own joints... Damn, he even beat us to that bit of parody.
I don't think NK is a satellite state in the usual sense of the word. China certainly shields NK, but its reasoning isn't always clear. NK does act as a major counterbalance to US interests (Japan, South Kore and Taiwan). At the same time, NK seems extremely suspicious of China and some believe that at least part of the reason for the latest purge was to cut out members of the regime with too close a ties to China.
So we should burn any movie script that dares insult some violent tyrant, lest they get upset? Should we also stop publishing reports on said tyrants? Just how much would you like the West to appease the likes of Kim Jong-Un?
Or, you know, just fucking drive slower so that you can safely stop in time.

Never assume someone hitting you is going to have insurance.
I don't actually care. I have my own insurance. It'd be nicer to claim off theirs but I don't have to.
Of course, it'd be even nicer to not need a claim. When coming to an emergency halt (accident in front, or genuinely boneheaded driver nearly causing one, or just me failing to realise the traffic had started going 40mph slower than me) I generally look in my rear view mirror and very much adjust the extent of my braking to give the car behind as much space as possible while giving myself enough space to stop.
But I drive cars that can stop very quickly - good brakes, good grip, good reactions. So I usually have the luxury of not slamming the brakes on full, but instead adjusting the rate of braking to suit the situation.
So 15% of the US are shit selfish drivers. Nonetheless, if red light cameras make you slam on your brakes then you're driving badly.
It's a fucking junction. You don't have to go through it at the sped limit. You can slow down as you approach it, to give you more time to react if the lights change.
That's what normal people do. Sensible, safe drivers, that get to pick up their kids from the whatever-the-fuck proxy for their shit parenting place they've put them in because they didn't have an accident because they know how to fucking drive.
How about you just plan your life better - start with not having fucking children, you're clearly not equipped for it.

I have to admit, it could hardly come at a better time. Budget talks are due.
(this is me doing my happy dance)
I'd rather not call the average attack "very advanced". I'd rather call the average security situation in the average company "very crappy".
And I have little reason to assume this being different.
Given the energy travels through the earth faster than sound, I wonder what the hell kinds of sounds are generated by what earth micro-stresses arriving ahead of the main shockwaves.
At 30 mph your braking time (the time between slamming the brakes on and you stopping) is 1.8 seconds. Reaction time varies, but depending on circumstances it usually is between half a second and a second.
At 55 we're already at well over 2.5s for braking alone, without reaction time.
All of this assuming dry weather and tire and brake condition.
In short, not slamming the brakes down will not allow you to come to a stop before the traffic light turns red.
No, the fat guy was just coincidence, he had heard the lunch truck pull up.
