    Default Things that DON'T Suck! ie. Awesome things!

    In light of my original thread of things that suck I think it's time for a 'Things that don't Suck' tread. This is THE place to post all the Awesome little things you come across.


    I'll start off with one of my favourites:

    Speeding a little...only a little...like 110 in an 80 (easy to do in the back country without cruise in a sweet car)
    Then you see it. The flashing lights. But not in your rearview. Saved! By that Ford before you. Heheheh

    Getting 12 cents off per litre at the pump every time I fill up. Helps offset the cost of running 94 octane all the time haha.

    Finding that the HOV lane on Eglinton has been changed from 3 ppl/car to 2 ppl/car. Now I can drive my kid around using it, legally!

    HOV lanes like this make driving the kid around more fun now. "Hey kid, for once you're saving me time" lol.

    moved to a new neighborhood just before winter, now the weather is nice we've been out walking with our son in the evenings
    everyone is super nice, they pass and say 'hi'. I don't think one person has ever passed us straight

    Working nights with a job you have to drive around a bit at night. When some days I'll go Brampton - Woodbridge - Richmond hill - Toronto - Mississauga - Brampton no traffic at night actually makes it enjoyable
