In The Doghouse

“The most important thing in communication is hearing what isn’t said.”  (Peter Drucker)
Wrong.  Hearing what isn’t said is what puts husbands in the doghouse.  That, and random emails.

From Tom Vanderbilt's Book: Traffic

Drivers seated higher think they are driving more slowly than drivers
seated lower, and so tend to speed more often.

SUV's can reduce the capacity of signalized intersections by up to 20%.

Studies have shown driving aggressively, which raises crash risk and
increases fuel consumption, saves just a minute on a 27-mile trip.

Here's a link to the latest study from U.S. DOT  2010 Traffic Safety Facts.

Subject: Interesting things about emails
Random emails forwarded without explanation have been known to decrease the life expectancy of one hundred percent of husbands one hundred percent of the time. Random forwarded emails followed by insinuated explanations have shown an even higher decrease in life expectancy.
