I'm still surprised that anyone leaves anything of value in their car without the car being in sight, but then again I have had my window smashed out 10 times over the last two decades (hazards of the hood). It was inconvenient, but no laptop or vintage stratocaster was lost.

I have a Northface McMurdo jacket in size xxxl. This thing has an ungodly amount of HUGE pockets, so much so that I lose things in it. It also doubles as a blanket / mattress, and will keep you warm in subantarctic temps (look up Archibald McMurdo, of the HMS Terror, he explored antarctica. I would never need this.

People are still annoyed by obnoxious cell phone users.

Yeah, that was the point.. It is getting worse and there is no sort of etiquette established by society yet. That Microsoft commercial for the MicroPhone was about this behavior. In metropolitan areas it is really bad. In New York, people are texting on the highway (which is never a straight line) constantly, and in the city people just stop in the middle of a jam packed sidewalk. This morning a guy on a scooter pulled one out at the stoplight, and failed to notice the light had changed.
