    Driving home the other night, I think I realized why it's harder to see the road on rainy nights.


    The light from the headlights isn't reflected back off the road to the eyes, it just kinda skips off all the water droplets. Something like a million tiny mirrors laying on their sides.

    Man, I remember actually being able to see the lines on the road back when they actually PAINTED them on. The whole road basically lit up, regardless of whether or not it was wet.
