I believe Starman is the culmination of prolonged exposure to TCE. Ladies and Gentlemen, I present to you, patient zero.

You write like a sixth grader because you think like a sixth grader. 
When I point out your mistakes, and discuss salient points in a logical manner, you resort to your hateful imagination, and bring up bizarre attacks such as your pathetic screed above.  Then at the bottom of every post you write, you present your toy car collection. 
Some boys never grow up.
qwerty:  Hey StarmanMBA, go fuck yourself.

Is TCE like that black liquid from Alien ? Then maybe we need a different graphic to properly demonstrate what might eventually happen to patient zero

Sometimes bad manners can have extremely tragic consequences:

"A statement from Wanzhou district police said the 48-year-old female passenger asked the driver to pull over after she missed her stop, but he didn't. She walked up to the driver's seat and scolded him. The driver turned his head back several times arguing."

I have actually started regretting my decision to live in irvine, while it's good that ppl elsewhere had troubled pasts in their culture, but u come ovr to americA for a better life. Most i feel never truly understand the system in place and general courtesy, they just dont make a conscious decision to change themselves to adjust to the life here,but repeat what they have learnt all their life here...woodbury town center is prime example of this, ppl would just not see pedestrians crossing, i have seen so many times these drivers  totally ignorant on what is happening....

I think running people over in parking lots IS local Irvine culture and has little to do with people from other countries. It's an entitled generational me first mentality that comes from the all American "time is money" cliche. People don't have enough time, feel rushed and crowded and think they are the most important person on the planet. Blonde twenty somethings are the worst followed by college aged middle easterners in $100k cars.

People like that thinks cars should have priority when they're behind the wheel (pedestrians should yield).  But when they're crossing the street and cars don't yield to them they cuss at the drivers and say drivers should yield to pedestrians.

What it translates to is that both cars/drivers and other pedestrians should yield to THEM, but not the other way around.  If they're truly entitled (trust fund babies or wealthy parents abroad), they can afford to be snobby.  The ones who are poor or in low socioeconomic standing, but still have illusions of being entitled are prone to angst and lengthy rants.

Historically, newly arrived immigrants lived in ethnic ghettos, and took 1-2 generations to assimilate.  Today the upper classes from abroad are used to globe trotting, multiple passports/residencies, parking money in tax havens, and sending their kids to school around the world.  For example, Huawei's founder's youngest daughter Annabel Yao at age 21 has already attended school in Shanghai, HK, UK, and now Harvard in the US.  While her elder half sister (who had 7 passports) was being arrested in Canada, Annabel was busy attending Le Bal des Débutantes in Paris being escorted by Count Gaspard de Limburg-Stirum.

Rude drivers exist everywhere and transcends all race, gender, ethnicity, religion, national origin, and income levels.  Rude driving does not discriminate. 

What I would say is that one is more likely to be biased as to who one remembers as a rude driver based upon one's own background, experiences, and explicit/implicit biases/prejudices.

I see a lot of people driving and talking on the phone. They are even driving while charging the phone. (That’s like asking for to be pulled over. So obvious for cops to spot.)

For example this past weekend a car almost side swiped my car when I was on the fwy with my immediate family. (On 134 heading to the 5 fwy southbound) Also, the driver was partially/slightly in my lane for like 2 minutes. I had to honk several times for him to move. It turns out the guy was on the phone. Nothing happened to me because of my alertness and good driving instincts/skills. [btw that person was not Asian]

Looking at how she smiled after being arrested, she'd fit right in at the Florida Keys.
