BMW drivers really are jerks, studies find
http://autos.yahoo.com/news/bmw-drivers-really-are-jerks--studies-find-214456020.html
Drivers of BMWs frequently come in for anecdotal criticism for habits on the road that are perceived as aggressive.

Now, a couple of studies, one in the U.S. and another from the U.K., appear to provide statistical evidence that BMW drivers are, to be polite about it, complete jerks.

Prius drivers have a place right under Bimmer because of the smugness. 9/10, the BMW owner is usually the base or one above the base who drives it like it's a M variant. Hell, I crashed into a guard rail in March when a BMW 335i driver was on my tail, so I sped up to widen the distance and lost control and hit the guard rail.

I drive a nice POS, so when that happens I tap on the break.  They either hit me, or back off.  They've never hit me because their car is worth a lot more than mine!

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
