We Are Dumbasses...Collectively.

Please excuse the Benny Hill music. Though I normally want to kick puppies when I hear that theme, it really does go with this video. Portland drivers have no idea what to do when the temperature drops below 40. And yet...we all drive Subarus.

**Please note that around 1:08 there's a car that actually switches drivers at the bottom of the hill. I find this to be awesome.**



(Thanks Andrew!)

Yeah, people drive pretty stupid where I am, too (and I imagine everywhere). The way some people drive, it's like they've never seen snow before, or they're afraid of it.

I would pay a considerable sum of money to slap your butt to the beat of that music. Shouldn't there be grit salt on those roads?

How can you hate Benny Hill music?? Dude, it automagically makes everything 110% more awesome.

I'm amazed not one accident occured during all that time!

...and it wouldn't be the same, at all, without the "Benny Hill" music...

I loved the Asian gal they interviewed the other day who has just rolled her BMW off the road into a ditch. She apparently thought she was to rich to be effected by weather conditions.

HA HA HA HAHA!!!!
I'm dying!! That is HILARIOUS!

what gets me is the hill is not that steep. Come see the hill I had to drive up in 1983 monte carlo ss! I lived on top of a glacial moraine. :)

I drove all over the place today and then couldn't get my damn car back into the driveway. Wheels a spinnin' and all. Felt pretty dumb. I got in eventually, but geeez.

I can't play that clip for some reason! And every time I comment on your blog, I have to change the window from Turkish to English. It drives me wild. I just want you to know I'm making sacrifices even if I didn't figure out how to play the clip...

And you should see how people drive here. However bad that clip is, I'm betting I see worse every morning and evening...
