Fog lights

Hi all,

We get quite a lot of fog over here in Holland, but not of the dense kind,
mostly. The law says you can only use your rear fog lights when out of
built-up areas *and* when visibility is less than 50 metres (about 150
yds). But whenever it's even slightly hazy, all those dumb so-and-so's
switch their fog lights on, and forget to switch them off when the weather
clears up afterwards, thus irritating the @#!$ out of all people behind
them. Because twin rear fog lights look remarkably like brake lights, you
get the impression that the guy in front of you is standing on his brakes
all the time. That's why I stick to one single rear fog light. There was
something on this subject in the press recently, I think they're even going
to prohibit twin rear fog lights over here for that reason.

I don't know if it's the same in the US, but over here there's also a lot
of twits driving with their front fog lights on all the time, no matter
what weather. I guess they drive so badly, they *need* to be seen by

My $0.02 on the subject.

    Q:  How many surrealists does it take to screw in a lightbulb?

    A:  Two. One to hold the giraffe and the other to fill the
        bathtub with brightly colored machine tools.
