Swedish Driver's Test - Part 2


Still flogging my way through the practice driver’s license test.
More elk questions:

You are driving at 90 km/h. Suddenly an elk runs out 45 meters in front of the car and you brake heavily. What speed will you have when you collide with the elk?

Wouldn’t it be better to just go around the elk?

Which of these options is the most appropriate way to turn in this intersection?


This is one of my favorites. Obviously not ‘C’, but A or B? What’s your best guess? One would think left or right, but not that easy.

No Free Lunch


Amber - Sun Shot Fix 

No Free Lunch
by Gerald Locklin

The cat on the back of the sofa
Watching the birds and squirrels
Feed and frolic on the patio
Outside the sliding glass window,
Realizes he is living his life
In a cage
Only slightly larger than that
Of the parakeet.
Courtesy of his loving (themselves) owners,
Who have bought his freedom
From the pet shop or pound,
He has been further relieved of the burdens
Of procreation and child-rearing,
While being afforded a waived tuition
Into what Bunuel nailed as
The Discreet Charms of the Bourgeoisie.
