So, I'm driving down the expressway last week and some doofus is riding about an foot off my bumper. I look in the rear view mirror and see it's some yuppie in a red jeep. He looks really agitated at the fact he can"t get around me. (even though I'm doing 70 in the middle lane) He decides to get even closer. Me, I'm thinking about how much fun it's going to be when I tap the brakes and he has to stop in a panic. At the same time, I get a crick in my neck and move my head towards my left shoulder and then towards my right (like you're trying to crack your neck or something). I look back in the mirror and mr. yuppie has backed off a few car lengths. I totally expected him to still be riding my bumper. Weird. I wonder to myself if the neck thing had anything to do with it so I try it on the next tailgater. He backs off as well. It's worked everytime I've done it and I just don't understand it. Will someone else give this a shot and let me know if it works for you. It's freaking me out man.
In the meantime, here's some kids with cans.
