Mirror, signal, bash someone's head in with a bat

Rage still occupies my thoughts: Sebastian and the bear, bombs falling on Belgrade in the name of peace, the darkness of a human heart. After my previous post on the subject, I'm glad to say that my state of mind has much improved. I did, however, find this angry little gem during the course of my morning read:

A Dutch driving instructor hit a knife-wielding fellow motorist with a baseball bat during a fight over his student's skills, police said Wednesday.

"Words were exchanged between the instructor and the man who pulled a knife and then the other hit him with a baseball bat," a police spokeswoman said.

The 27-year-old driving instructor and a 51-year-old man with a head injury and a mild concussion were arrested and must appear in court.

Driving Instructor Gives Lesson in Road Rage

Like, he just happened to be carrying a baseball bat? If you're going to throw down about teaching, you should be a kung fu instructor, not a driving instructor for heaven's sake. I have visions of a new genre of Hong Kong movie emerging: traffic camera fight scenes, with dubbed stick fighting noises.

"Your reverse parking technique is lousy!"

"Damn you, you bastard! HWYARGH!" Crack!

Perhaps it's time to go outside and get some sunlight.
