Thank you, chivalrous guy on that slow stretch of Newport Boulevard heading into Costa Mesa, for sprinting out of your SUV with handicapped plates to scream incoherently at me about my driving, call me a fat bitch, and then run back to your car. I was following traffic patterns, not doing anything intentionally wrong. I hope the next time you decide to run out of your vehicle and yell at another motorist, they have a very special gift for you. Seems to me the only thing handicapped about you is your manners.

Distortion of facts as presented indicates a premeditated assumption that the reader knows more than the writer. Subliminally the writer presented herself as obese.

Please note that the writer said that they were called a "fat bitch" by the road rage person and not that the writer described herself as fat.

Studies have shown that "shock" statements stimulate certain nuerotransmitters of the brain causing a reaction that actually proves to be a stimulation on the productive side. Patients receiving this type of treatment have had amazing results once a follow up therapy is applied if needed.

The relationship between beta-endorfin and seratonin were researched specifically focusing on their neurotransmitters and mood enhancement.

The studies were done using the Beilstein Reference identifier 1281604 and the Gmelin reference identifier .

Recent studies have shown that fat people, as you described yourself, have less patience and a slower brain function than normal people. Could be your driving skills are a reflection of that. Add a minority in there and studies have shown a significant drop in cognitive skills. Lab results have shown that if restrictions were put on the obese to driving at certain times of the day and requiring them to do a blood sugar glucose test their chances of incoherent driving would decrease. My thoughts were that the man who confronted you may have been a physician that recognized your symptoms and was trying to warn you of the inherent danger. Your ability to recognize this due to your low sugar confused you into thinking he said something else when in reality he wasn't. If obese had orange flags on their cars so the public could recognize them it may add some level of safety as not experienced before.

Dr. Samuel sounds like A. He is either full of poop or B. He is the actual driver of said SUV. Sputnik is correct: The Road Rager called her a fat bitch. Doesn't mean that she was. "Fat" is an insult often tossed out by ill tempered, misogynistic men.

One thing is for sure: There is a whole lot of crazy round here!

Are you serious about the study? My B.S. detector is going crazy right now.

Ok, I get it, you don't want to provide a reference to the research report. I assume that's because you're aware that I don't have a hope of understanding the paper and I can accept your word as an authority, or maybe alternatively, it hasn't been presented in a peer-reviewed forum.

Just curious, you visit a physician and his comment is on the order of "you're just a fat bastard", what would you think of his professionalism?

Note that I asked about references to the studies, not for a clarification of the protocol.

So what you're saying is that there were apparent chemical differences in brain function. How were these correlated with behavioural patterns?

Very interesting. Please post a link to these studies.
