In essence, we can state much of Web usability as: answer customers' questions, get to the point, and take it easy on the bells and whistles. If only we could get websites to stop annoying users, much would be gained.

last night we were coming home from Rock Climbing in Hamilton heading back to McDonalds for free flurries (this was a crew activity and was very fun), anyway, its about a 30min drive from the place we went to the store, on the way back 3 of the drivers decided to race, the car i was in was parked down the street a bit, so the other 2 got a head start, we figured we were going to loose, we took a little detour over a bridge to get on another onramp to get on the high way when we see the other 2 cars flying around the bend in the high way up a bit, so there they are raceing in and out of traffic thinkingits a 1on1 race, when they saw us come flying down the next onramp at 140mph they picked up the pace also, we got to one point where we had to take it down to 100 then the car i was in found a gap in traffic and floored it, the gap closed before the other 2 cars could get through, but one of them later caught up, we found another gap, and floored it once again... got off the highway, ran a few yellow - turning red lights, and won the race... the race lasted 10 min, when it takes 30min to do it in the first place :)

btw, did i mention our car was running on gas fuems and the other 2 cars were supposed to be much better then ours :) just shows its not the type of the car... its how you control it :)

*thanks god there were no cops around*
