    General WTF Moments

    So my friend and I got involved in a road rage incident. A friend was dropping me off after some planespotting. We were driving on this 1x1 lane road where this guy started tailgating us. My friend decided to step on his breaks unexpectedly and then seconds later, flip him the bird. This got the guy so angry that he continued to follow us. When the road turned into two lanes, he got next to the car next to me and shouted "F*CK YOU" with his head sticking out the window. He was following us and tailgating us right after the insult and instead of turning left into my neighborhood, we cut through a couple lanes of traffic turning left trying to lose him. Eventually, we did, after turning into another residential neighborhood and quickly making several turns, hiding in an alleyway. We waited there for a few minutes before driving my place and calling the police. Unfortunately, we didn't get a license plate but we had descriptions for the driver and vehicle. For a few seconds, I thought it was my last day. Well, I guess I learned a valuable lesson about road rage, it isn't worth it.

    A gutted U2 connected to a SD-160 Series 8 is sitting on the tracks where B/O trains sit and wait there turn for maintenance. I presume it is 2077.

    Yellowknife Transit #4751 is a MD35, departing Old Town on Route C. This one of 6 Buses in the Yellowknife fleet. Four Being MD35s and Two being Thomas HDX School Buses that are used for transit.
  5. Adding the Canadian North - Boeing 737-200C from YEG-YZF & YZF-YEG to my list. Flying with Canadian North 737-200 is so unique, from boarding back of the plane, to the plane itself being part cargo, to the quality in terms of cabin services with hot meals.

    CTrain - U2 cars Retirement Watch

    Noticed 2077?, the retired car at Oliver Bowen being cuffed to another U2. Probably being moved inside to get more parts removed before being split in two.

    Someone was rolling up marijuana joints on the train I was on. The smell of pot was extremely strong and irratating.
