Rage Against the Tool

Study says millions have 'rage' disorder—“To you, that angry, horn-blasting tailgater is suffering from road rage. But doctors have another name for it — intermittent explosive disorder — and a new study suggests it is far more common than they realized, affecting up to 16 million Americans.”

Well, I don’t know about the other 15,999,999 of you, but my rage disorder made its first appearance in November of 2000, had a rather alarming peak in November of 2004, and will, I predict, with any luck diminish significantly in November of 2008.

(That picture totally looks exactly like me, btw. I swear it could be a photograph of angry Shakes. Those who were at the meet-up will surely confirm this is exactly what I looked like after I walked out of An Inconvenient Truth; I was even wearing a red shirt.)
