Description under the video on YouTube:

In a race, athlete Abel Mutai representing Kenya, was just a few feet from the finish line, but he was confused with the signage & stopped thinking he had completed the race. The Spanish athlete, Ivan Fernandez was right behind him & realizing what was happening, he started shouting at the Kenyan for him to continue running; but Mutai didn't know Spanish didn't understand. Then the Spanish pushed him to victory.

A journalist asked Ivan, "Why did you do that?" Ivan replied, "My dream is that someday we can have a kind of community life". The journalist insisted "But why did you let the Kenyan win?" Ivan replied, "I didn't let him win, he was going to win". The journalist insisted again, "But you could have won!" Ivan looked at him & replied, "But what would be the merit of my victory? What would be the honour of that medal? What would my Mom think of that?"

Values are transmitted from generation to generation. What values are we teaching our children? Let us not teach our kids the wrong ways & means to "win"

Judging by the position of the camera, the guy is probably pissed because he's sitting in the right side pump lineup, and pissed because the guy in the black car passed him and drove up to the left side pump. Why else would this bother anyone?
The fact that pumps are designed to do just that is too complexed for some people I guess, and those people appear to be in Edmonton.
Edmonton is no good.

Not sure what is going on in someone’s head (first time Costco user?) to not realize that is how the gas pumps at Costco are supposed to work.

Yeah Costco gas stations are specifically designed so you can fill up at any pump.

Why does the gas station traffic flow only one way?
Costco’s approach to gasoline is the same as inside the warehouse: high volume and low prices. One-way traffic makes it easier to get in and out of our stations quickly. Our extra-long hoses allow fueling from either side of the vehicle, so there is no concern with which lane to choose.

You sir, need to try roasting it (broccoli or cauliflower for that matter).
Toss in oil, salt, pepper, garlic powder, or another seasoning of your choice (steak spice is good too). Roast at 425. Delicious.
