A weird signal’s better than no signal at all

A weird signal’s better than no signal at all.<p><b>#3. Isn’t There a Left Turn Signal at Every Major Intersection?</b><p>This is about that one intersection in your town (you know the one; you avoid it like the plague, but about once a month you forget and find yourself stranded there for 10 minutes) that has its own light – even an entire separate lane just for turning left – and yet, when the red finally does blink off, it is not an arrow that greets you. It is the mocking, insensate verdant orb of …

Swoon

<i>Swoon.</i><p><b>#5. Vests Are Suitable Only for the Very Cool</b><p>Han Solo, the coolest man in the universe, defines the vest for me. Even Harrison Ford isn’t cool enough to wear a vest.
