There was a bar here in town that had colored, halogen spotlights aimed in all the toilets. It made peeing rather beautiful.

You have read about this pope, right?

Yeah, that would have been the previous pope.

That's one way to solve the Trolley problem - leave no witnesses.

THAT is why you don't leave snow on top of your car. They ticket people for that in the more civilized parts of the world.

And the person driving the car with the dashcam doesn't even bother to slow down.

I mean there's a flying sheet of ice spinning around right in front of your car. Maybe you slow down and change lanes?

i count maybe four seconds

subtract a couple of seconds to assess the situation and you’re not left with a lot of time to react

that of course assumes the driver sees what the dash cam sees

Also, they cannot move right, due to a vehicle being right beside them.

I've lived in and driven in both the Los Angeles metro and the DC metro.

Believe me. I could find a way to move right.

Speed up and swerve into the lane in front of the car to the right.

They had fallen back a bit, and at the point when the ice hits they may not have even been next to the leftmost car at all. They didn't seem to be going the same speed as the cars in the left lane, so I don't think they would have been even. There's also a good chance that they would have seen the ice sheet, too. They would have almost definitely fallen back or swerved to the next lane(which was likely empty).

Or, alternatively, if the car had actually been going faster than the cars in the left lane, I would have hit my brakes. I know that people in this discussion don't think there was enough time, but I am already like a frayed nerve, and I notice things quickly. Having driven in these two areas has made me even more on-edge and aware of my surroundings than I would have been, and I expect that I would have been aware of the ice sheet very quickly(and possibly tipped off by things sliding around the roof of the vehicle ahead when it was driving, or tipped off by a very large amount of snow thereon).

Knowing that there's a flying sheet of ice coming toward me, I think four seconds would have been enough time to take action to get out of the way in that situation.

Oh I don't care if you believe it.

I just know that I've driven in rush hour traffic in some of the tightest driving conditions requiring the quickest of reflexes, and I'm naturally someone who tends to be really observant and on-edge anyway, so I'm used to driving in conditions where you're constantly avoiding accidents by milliseconds. It's not that I'm naturally awesome or something; it's that I've had experience in dangerous driving conditions, and I'm a lot more confident in my ability to make it through them than a lot of people would be.

I've had a high number of close calls driving, and it's not like I intentionally seek out situations which are dangerous, but when I do get into them I'm less afraid, and because of that I'm better able to react. I can't count the number of times I've been in a situation in which I went "Oh, human waste; there's a surprise object (about to hit me)/(in the middle of the road)," and have gotten around it successfully.

I would have whipped out my nunchucks, jumped out on the hood, and batted that ice out of the sky. Then high-fived my right side passenger Chuck Norris, who witnessed the whole thing in total awe.
