A Mexican liquor that is close cousin to the more famous Tequila. Mezcal is usually stronger, and is known for it's trademark worm which is placed in the bottle. The worm's preservation in the bottle is, according to legend, a sign of high proof in the liquor. Many fraternities believe that eating the worm (which, unlike the liquid it's found in, is relatively harmless) is a right of passage. High quality brands of Mezcal rarely carry the worm.
You aren't a true binge drinker until you've drank the Mezcal and eaten the worm.
2) Evening hours when the roads begin to get congested like a fat man's arteries. Usually starts around 4 and ends at 8, reaching total gridlock at 5. Drivers during these hours seem to be more concerned with not letting you get infront of them in lane switches (by speeding up alongside of you) than their own wellbeing. They also don't want to wait more than 3 milliseconds to take a left turn even when there is oncoming traffic. Even if they broke a hundred traffic laws to get there, drivers still seem to obey the speed limit when they are the first car in traffic, while everyone else is tailgating. Argh.
1) A sheet usually made of a clear material, such as glass, that is used to allow sight and occasional air flow, while otherwise retaining the characteristics of a wall.
2) When getting into a car, calling 'window' is required if there are more than four people. Usually, one person will call shotgun, then the next two will quickly call window. Calling the window behind the driver is also wise, as the driver is usually closer to the wheel than the passanger, thus, more leg room. The person who hesitates the most ends up bitch.
1) It was getting hot, so I opened up the window.
2) Shotgun was already called, so I quickly called window so I wouldn't get stuck sitting bitch.
On the highway, with more congested (but not traffic jam) hours with lots of cars, a lane shield is the car hovering next to you while you are trying to get into their lane. Sometimes this is even intentional by the driver because they feel you may be trying to cut them off. Usually they will tailgate the vehicle in front of them so that you have to brake hard or speed up infront of them both to get into their lane.
I missed my exit because of that stupid lane shield in the pick up truck.
During long road trips, you may come across (or rather, they'll come across you) a lightning rod. It is basically a car which has one goal on the highway... to keep in the triple digits MPH. You'll discover them most likely riding your tail if your in the left lane.
The purpose of a lightning rod is to let them go. Chances are, you aren't obeying the speed limit either and, on a long road trip, you'll want to be pushing around 80. Police fundraisers on the side of the highway will catch this guy first. Lightning rods will eventually leave the highway or disappear into the horizon, and ghost cars might creep up on you.
I followed the lightning rod while maintaining a steady 80 MPH until it eventually disappeared.
