Easiest way is to run with them and change over.  But alas, most people want to get to the other side as fast as he/she can.

It would probably be easier if they followed the flow downstream a bit, but human frogger is pretty funny to watch.

It’s along the same phenomenon why so many Americans don’t know how to merge onto a highway/interstate..etc. So many think going 45mph into traffic going 70-75mph is the safe and responsible way to do it.

One of my biggest pet peeves in driving.

+1.  Drives me nuts when I see someone going 40 into 70 MPH highway.

Don't they know they need to reach the traffic speed before merging?  What are these people thinking?  It is dangerous to go slow in a fast traffic.

Reminds me of merging onto freeways when I was out in California. They had big, digital signs above some of the on ramps that would tell you, "DON'T SLOW DOWN! FIND A SPACE AND GET IN IT!" Seems pretty common sense for a state like California! 

Like Vinsk said, I've had people coming down an on ramp well in front of me who slow down until we're caught in a pinch! I can't move over because of the traffic on my left, and these people are too stupid to look at all the space in front of them! On the contrary I've had people, usually guys, who are behind me on the ramp, floor it because "they're in a hurry", and are bound and determined to get to the freeway in front of me. 

In both cases they are stupid, and poor drivers!

    • Apparently not very consistently.  Some days are better than others. Due to the dead scaphoid bone that supports my left thump, I usually have too much finger pressure in my left hand, leading to a dead slice if I don't consciously release through impact.. I keep my hand strength up through regular exercise with the devils backhoe (a shovel, doing road work) I was retired for a while but decided to reenter the workforce as a grunt, getting paid to exercise while being outdoors, while waiting for my young bride to qualify for a full pension.  Years ago I had ER  Drs who wanted to fuse the thumb. I declined. My regular orthopedic Dr says if I keep my hand strength anywhere near where it is I may never need it fused. I may be a bit -um- rotund, but I am still very strong for being 61. I am going to read that blog. Sounds interesting, and I will try the Snells, never heard of them till now. Thanks guys!
    • Day 52 - Didn’t get around to filming, but still took some swings; working on my setup. 
    • Day 318 Did a superspeed workout, then some work on backswing/takeaway priority piece, and started working again on hip turn priority piece.
    • 2018 PGA Championship: DeChambeau wins long drive 10th Check out the results from the annual long drive contest at the 10th hole of Bellerive during a practice round. This was pre bulk up plan.  The 2 swings he had were called "the fairway finder" and "the crank."
