And if I'm reversing looking over my shoulder, one hand isn't on the

There are these things called mirrors that don't require you to look
over your shoulder.


Even better: the little TV camera built into the rear of some modern
cars which outputs a display to the car's computer screen.

Better still the two proper CCTV cameras that I have on each of two
vehicles, with a proper TV screen for the display.

There's apparently some stupid one in a car where you rotate your hand

You rotate your hand anticlockwise. For slowing down (aka "please pass")
you flap your hand up and down.

I remember the appearance of the buttons on a nightstand in a hospital
in Galveston, even though I haven't been there for 47 years.

BTW, saying that reminds me of the smell of fish (another memory from
that time, Galveston is on an island by the Gulf of Mexico). I would
often ride the ferry, and smell the salt and fish.

You ranted about the same thing in 2017. Tedious.
You remembered I did that. You're not right in the head.

I remembered you whinged about it before. I had to look up the date.


You keep several years of records?!

Of course I looked it up on google.
And why would you remember that? Most people remember only important things.

It stuck in my mind for some reason. I also remember that my fifth-grade
teacher was allergic to roses.

Most people remember a ton of irrelevant crap.


When I was a young lad, maybe 10 or 11, my older brother said to me:

"I want you to forget that you ever heard of Edward Everett Horton. Never
think of him again."

Thanks, bro. That command and that name have been rattling around
in my head for over half a century.

The only thing I can think of is from the old days. There was a time
when drivers used hand signals to signal
left, right, or stop with their left hands. That might still be legal
but I don't remember anyone using them.

Not only are hand signals still legal, but a road test examiner may
ask you to at least
demonstrate one or more signal or recognize one or more signal as part
of the test.

Keep in mind that drivers are required to signal their intention to
turn, slow or stop.
If that can't be accomplished with vehicle's equipment, then hand
signals must be used.
Not just legal, but the law.

Some people say that you should use hand signals in bright sunlight,
bumper to bumper
traffic and any other situation where your turn signals might be hard
to see.

Kids should be taught to use hand signals while they are riding a
bicycle as soon as
they are proficient/confident enough to ride with one hand. You might
be surprised to
hear that the NHTSA adds a 4th hand signal for bicyclists (Alternative
Right Turn) and
also allows either arm to be used for slowing or stopping.

https://www.nhtsa.gov/staticfiles/nt...andSignals.pdf


Very stupid to use any of those, since most people will misunderstand them.

Let's look at your list.... "right turn" - on a bike, I stick my right
arm straight out. If I stuck my left arm out and put the forearm up,
people would think I meant "stop".

There's apparently some stupid one in a car where you rotate your hand
to mean you're turning the opposite way to the side your hand is on
(since you can't reach right across the car). I would take that to mean
"please pass"


You rotate your hand anticlockwise. For slowing down (aka "please pass")

Both stupid to use, most will think rotating your hand means "pass me" and flapping your hand is you telling them to slow down.

I can remember the appearance of a very hot female doctor in a hospital.
