Sixth sense

Postby Cunobelin » 24 May 2014, 9:14am

Sometimes one wonders about your "sixth sense"

Yesterday coming down through Cams Hall on the Gekko trike, the lights were red, and I looked in my mirror.

I just "felt" that the car behind was too fast and "not right" so I pulled into the slip and the Cams Hall estate.

I am so glad I listened to that feeling, as I f I had simply stopped at the lights......

It does come in useful,with varying results but never negative,unless it's not heeded.

Could have done with my sixth sense working here.

Damned if you stop, squashed if you don't more like...
A shortcut has to be a challenge, otherwise it would just be the way.
No situation is so dire that panic cannot make it worse.
A good pun is it's own reword

There are two kinds of people in this world: those can extrapolate from incomplete data.

Probably just that the driver wasn't planning on stopping for the light...
