Man, I don't understand women at all.

All you need to understand is that we're crazy.

Once you learn to accept that, life will be a lot easier.

Yes, it is like when people driving refuse to use their turn signals because they do not want to lose the element of surprise!

I hate that. Driving is not like boxing, telegraphing your next move will help *prevent* getting your clock cleaned.

Other pet peeve: turning your turn signal *after* you've committed to the turn. [sarcasm]Oh, you're turning! I thought you just cut across three lanes of traffic because the relentless ennui of urban life had finally driven you over the edge.[/sarcasm]

Or how about the douche bag who comes up behind you, just sticks up your ass for a couple of seconds, swings out, guns it hard to get around you, pull in front of you and hits the brakes because *NOW* he needs to turn right.

I resemble that comment. Perhaps he learned to drive at the same school as me ... i.e Sears Point Raceway.

With all the idiocy surrounding the GriGri it might be time we throw the GriGri out and start having people belay with the I'D S. That belay device is pretty fullproof. If you thread the rope backwards it will lock. If you crank on the handle, the handle will disengage. If you need to take your hands off the rope, you can switch to the lock mode and the cam will pinch the rope and completely prevent it from moving in any direction. You can also do 250m raps with it and lower 150kg loads by yourself. It is like a GriGri on steroids. Maybe the next time I have to take a noob belay lead test at some random gym I will use this guy just to piss them off. Oh wait, if one cannot figure out a GriGri then...
