Somewhat, I would say I multitask pretty well. To me it takes a lot less mental effort to shave then talk on a cell phone (which I do not do now since I have not had a cell phone in 3 years). If I need the second hand or the situation looks dangerous I toss the shaver in the passenger seat and go on.
I use that one while driving. And yes I did shave this morning.
ditto.... though mine has no cream... hard to clean on the road. dry shave may be less comfortable, but shake it out at your destination and brush off the shirt and you are good to go.

Place a bucket of sea-sand by the front door, and every morning when you leave for work grab a pinch and put it in your mouth. Massage your teeth with your tongue on your way to work. Spit it out in the garden when you reach the office.
About a month or so ago, a down and depressed me posted my Friday blues [^]to my fellow CPains here in the Lounge and got a good lashing for it. So good in fact that I resorted to removing the details of the post just so that everyone would let me be.
I rear-ended another vehicle with an uninsured car and natuarally I got sued for all the in damages.
Still believing the other driver was more negligent, I appointed an attorney to attack the case. The other party totally withdrew, leaving me with only legal costs which are a fraction of the amount I was being sued for.
AFAIK, The other person being uninsured has nothing to do with your rates being increased, the mere fact that you claimed increased your rates. That's standard practice, you pay huge sums of money montly to be insured, then, when you claim the insurance company increase your rate so that they can get back the money they spent on your damages. They will tell you that their "risk assesment" determined that your "risk profile" has changed. If you're never involved in any big accidents involving car write-offs or your car being stolen, insurance is a lose-lose game to be involved in. Basic 3rd party insurance is the way to go for averaged priced cars.
I can't believe you got away with that crap
I got away because the person I rear ended caused the situation by being unpredictable and plainly stupid.
I won the case with reason, and trust me, you haven't seen stoopid until you get on our roads.
lol - funnily enough my MD is from SA, and he would concur with that statement - in fact, wasn't it SA that had to ban an anti-carjacking device which electrified the bodywork to some ridiculous level, thus "stunning" anyone who touches it...(stunning in quotes, cos IIRC it was killing people...)
C# has already designed away most of the tedium of C++.
Yes, that was us, but then we legalized actual built-in flame-throwers, which could be activated to toast any person standing next to the two front doors. When some shaky-looking guy comes to your car, keep your finger on the button marked "Anti-hijack". I've seen those babies in action, they don't kid around, standing 10 meters away I had to shield my eyes with my hand from the heat.
Try this: Roll down your driver-side window and try to drive through the center of Johannesburg or Pretoria without any incident, after trying it myself I still have no prove that it's actually possible.
Some people do it intentionally, it's an existing scam in the UK. Car in-front drives up to a roundabout with clear view to the right, nothing coming, but when the car behind goes to check for cars coming, the car in front unexpectedly slams on their brakes and gets rear-ended, as the driver planned and the driver of the car in front claims and wins. You can never be too sure who is truly at fault...
