    Right side mirrors on autos.

    This could be a rant topic or technology but who the fuck is the educated idiot who designed the right side mirror in which " objects may be closer than what they appear"? I don't want the fucking objects to appear farther away than they really are, I want them to appear how fucking close they really are! And why the fuck do all the auto makers have these abortions standard on their cars? God only knows how many accidents we've had when someone cuts somebody else off because they think they have proper clearance.
    Rant on technology over...................until somebody disagrees with me!
    Screw diplomacy...........bring it!

    Isn't it so you have a wider field of view? Though they definitely gave the average driver more credit than they deserve by thinking people could comprehend the little slogan.
    This sig didn't cost me any money.

      I don't notice any wider field of view. If folks would adjust their mirrors properly to eliminate the blind spot you wouldn't need no damned silly high tech bullshit!

        Ya know Dukie, my new F-150 has two mirrors on the driver side. The regular plus a concave type ( which I like btw) that widens your view, but it's on the side you have the most vision anyway. Why the fuck don't they put at least the concave on the right side? These are college graduates that come up with this shit!

          That doesn't make any sense. I like the little convex mirrors on the right, especially on larger vehicles.


          College people are stupid. I should know.

            Quit being lazy and turn your head to check your blind spot.

              The seat headrests are in the way, besides you cant see a midget smart car from a 4x4 pickup. Too damned short!

                Maybe you should drive something more sensible like a compact car for good gas mileage

                  Have to agree.

                  it's a japanese thing. And we know they're all blind - maybe it has something to do with that?
                  but yes. There should be a legal level of shrink/magnify on wing mirrors that is CONSISTENT between cars. I bought a new car recently and nearly got cleaned up shifting into what I thought was an empty spot in another lane.

                      And be unable to be seen by rednecks in 4x4s? No thanks!

                        You have cars over there? I dunno, I always thought you rode sheep or sumthin.

                            We get our slaves to carry us - if they refuse we eat them. it works.

                              20K [email protected]@2.35/gallon = $940.00

                              20K [email protected]@2.35/gallon = $2937.50

                              Prius = 26,000.00
                              Used F-150 4x4 = 12,500.00


                              You would have to drive the Prius for 4.5 years to break even.
                              This is where the gas mileage thing is total BS for the average person.

                              You also can't haul 2K pounds of gravel or firewood in a Prius. You can't even get to where the firewood is with a Prius.

                              You could barely haul the chainsaw, gas, bar oil, etc. in the Prius.

                              Most importantly, you will never see anything like this with a Prius:
