Yea, I know these things open up another whole can of worms about wearing one’s ideologies on one’s sleeve, I’m better than you are, etc, etc. But where I live, although technically Southern California, is ideologically “thuh Deep Suth”, and I am getting a bit weary about the majority constantly reminding me that I am in the minority, assuming that just because I’m so happy, moral, humble, mellow, whatever, that it must be because I’m xian. No, I don’t go about telling people that I’m not, unless they ask. And they never ask, unless prostletizing (at which point discussion is useless).
I’ve had this Darwin fish a good two years now, collecting dust, sitting on my sheep-sacrificing altar at home, because of some of the above mentioned reasons, but I think I’m ready now to attach it to my vehicle. One of the main reasons I’ve avoided doing it, however, is one of the main reasons I want to.
Y’see, my main mode of transportation is a motorcycle. I have these visions of a Chevy Guzzler or a Ford Behemoth, proudly emblazoned with a “God Bless America” sticker, seizing the opportunity to prove who’s side Og’s on. And as we all know, on a motorcycle, it doesn’t matter who hits who, you’re the one who’s screwed. And they’re so easy to mess with when parked too. I can see being stranded at school at 10pm with a missing spark plug. And this is why I think it would be so ballsy to do. “Damn, that guy’s sure of himself, isn’t he?”
So I ask, do any Dopers display a Darwin fish on their vehicles, and if so, have you experienced any vandalism and/or road rage directed toward you?
