Some of the streets in my neighborhood have recently been seal coated. I'm not entirely sure what that entails and I can't be bothered to find out. I do know that the ultimate layer on this seal coating is gravel.
I've been cracking up watching people take off from stop signs, spinning their wheels and kicking up gravel. I even saw someone fishtail a bit coming around a corner. Clearly, these people have not driven much on gravel roads (they could also just be idiot, jerkoff drivers who drive like assholes no matter the surface, I suppose).
Don't get me wrong -- I've fishtailed a time or two after hitting a spot with a lot of gravel. We should be glad the streets aren't washboarded. But I learned how to drive on gravel roads, and I still drive them often. My parents live on a gravel road.
It seems odd to me that people can go so many years without driving on a gravel road, but it happens. And I like to see them struggle on the streets of Minneapolis. 'Cause I'm evil.
