Are you one of them?

9 Different Types of Drivers You Find On The Road

The roads are full of many different types of cars. Blue cars, red cars, big cars, little cars, Priuses, monster trucks etc. Along with different types of cars comes different types of drivers. Drivers are just like Pokemon in the sense that each type of driver has their own specific behaviors and traits. Kee

p an eye out for each type of driver here and try to "catch them all". You may even be one of them.

1. Grandma Driver

This is one of the more common species. Common features include driving 10 mph below the limit and taking 15 minutes to make a turn. Relatively painless. Commonly old and fossil like.

2. The Angry Pick-Up Truck Drivers

Prone to road rage, less common. Inhabit the speed lanes and the fast lanes. Avoid at all costs, especially rush hour. Seem to enjoy displaying their middle finger.

3. Traffic Weavers

Relatively common and very annoying. Who knows where they need to go so quickly. Dangerous and should be avoided. Common culprits of speeding.

4. Tailgaters

Can also fall under No. 2. Extremely annoying and potentially dangerous. Common factor that makes them spawn is driving the speed limit.

5. Drivers That Honk Right When The Light Turns Green.

Very annoying and ridiculous. More common than should be. Can cause drivers in front to want to suddenly throw the car in reverse.

6. Drivers Who Impose Their Music On The World.

Two varieties exist: those who keep their windows down and blast music, and those who have their windows closed but crank the bass. Only should be avoided if tasteless music or country music is played.

7. The Distracted Driver

One of the most common types. Common traits include texting, calling, Snapchatting and my favorite: FaceTiming while driving. Can cause an accident. Common in young drivers.

8. The Passive Driver

Not as common as they should be. Very rare in urban areas such as NYC, Chicago, Cleveland etc. Seem to disappear around rush hour. Very tolerant of Nos. 1-6. Very safe and pleasant to be around.

9. The New Driver

Can easily be mistaken for a drunk driver. Avoid at all costs. Extreme danger to life and property. Common traits include swerving (the bad kind), driving extremely slow or fast, and a general appearance of confusion.

The road is such a wonderful environment to see all varieties of drivers in their natural habitat. Keep an eye out for all of these different types of drivers on the road. But be careful, some types are more dangerous than others. If one of your friends / family members are one of these, be sure to tag them!

Is Meaningful Casual Sex A Paradox?

Why noncommittal sex is more complicated than we'd like to think.


I lost my virginity to a graduate student from Los Angeles. We’d met at a rundown cafe whose Yelp page complained of an alleged rat infestation. His name was Ken and he was 25. What drew me to him was the peculiar way his mouth was perpetually fixed into a sideways, half-moon shape that was like a smirk but without any trace of smugness. But the two most striking parts of Ken by far were the dinner plate roundness of his face and his small, expressionless teddy bear eyes. Of the things that mattered to him, there was his best friend, a college dropout who sold computer parts in Toronto, and sex.

I'm a Cancer, a Crab, a Moon Child. It's currently our season fellow Crabs! So without further ado, here are all of the signs that you're a Cancer.

The Blessing of Lacking Sex Appeal

To all the fellow non "it" girls out there


Lacking sex appeal is not a desirable thing. It makes you fee not ugly, but wrong. Not having charisma is not a life goal. It doesn't make you fee friendless, but isolated. Not being the "it" girl happens, and tonight (and every nigh prior to this)

Confessions From the Single Friend of the Group

It is truly the worst place to be

Confessions From the Single Friend of the Group

Look. If you are anything like me, complaining about being single is such a hard thing to because you are genuinely happy for your friends, but as they continue to be happy in their relationships, the ever crushing weight of being the single friends can become overwhelming. For context, my primary friend group consists of four people. We are all roommates and it is a great time here. All three of my roommates have boyfriends/girlfriends, which makes our friend group of four quickly jump to seven, and it is wonderful! I love my roommates so much and I love their S.O's, but no matter how much I love them I always get extremely jealous and sad. The sad thing is that the only part that ever truly ends up bugging me is that since I am single, they are my go-to top priorities and it has been really hard to watch myself slip from the top of their go-to's to not being their go to when they feel the weight of the world. What makes it harder is that expressing that I feel alone and unwanted makes me sound jealous and like I don't want my friends to hangout with their people. I get it. I do. But there are just days I want to be someone's first pick and I'm not.
