Snarky State Trooper Offers A PSA On A Cutting-Edge New Auto Feature...The Turn Signal

As we know, many drivers just refuse to get the message. This should help.

It’s perhaps the most common refrain on the road beside the generic (and always applicable) “MOVE!” Even so, cries of “Use your turn signal!” are often screamed in vain as drivers ahead casually pull a left-hand turn from the middle lane of a busy street. If you do refuse to use your signal even as other drivers shout at you, then perhaps this very elementary tutorial from an Indiana State Trooper will compel you.

Here he is, tongue firmly in-cheek as he sings the praises of the most wondrous of new automotive technologies – the turn signal – in this video posted to Facebook:


Considering what a basic automotive courtesy using your turn signal is, he explains its use very slowly and carefully to those who haven’t picked up on using the thing. He points exactly how it works, pushing it down, then showing footage of the turn signal light on the car, blinking.

What a time to be alive. Now if there was only some way to shoot this video to people as you see them in traffic.

Some beauty pageants, like the Miss America competition, have done away with the swimsuit portions of the competitions, thus dipping their toes in the 21st century. Other aspects of beauty pageants remain stuck in the 1950s, and we're not even talking about the whole "judging women mostly on their looks" thing. One beauty pageant winner was disqualified for being a mom, as if you can't be beautiful after you've had a kid. Now she's trying to get the Miss World competition to update their rules.

Veronika Didusenko won the Miss Ukraine pageant in 2018. After four days, she was disqualified because pageant officials found out she was a mom to 5-year-old son Alex, and had been married. Didusenko said she had been aware of Miss World's rule barring mother from competing, but was encouraged to compete anyways by pageant organizers.

One mystery in our universe is a step closer to being solved. NASA's Parker Solar Probe launched last year to help scientists understand the sun. Now, it has returned its first findings. Four papers were published in the journal Nature detailing the findings of Parker's first two flybys. It's one small step for a solar probe, one giant leap for mankind.



It is astounding that we've advanced to the point where we've managed to build a probe capable of flying within 15 million miles from the surface of the sun, but here we are. Parker can withstand temperatures of up to 2,500 degrees Fahrenheit and travels at 430,000 miles per hour. It's the fastest human-made vehicle, and no other human-made object has been so close to the sun.

Since the mid '90s the phrase "God Forgives, Brothers Don't" has been part of the U.S. Military Academy at West Point's football team's lexicon.

Over the past few years, the team has taken the field flying a black skull-and-crossbones flag with an acronym for the phrase, "GFBD" on the skull's upper lip. Supporters of the team also use it on social media as #GFBD.
