I'm surprised that being a Yank he doesn't just pull out a gun and empty the clip into the air...

What's the dullard from the video's argument?
Lazy git.
Instead of blipping the throttle to warn someone about to cut you up, instead we should practice avoiding them. If we keep revving instead of avoiding, we develop muscle memory that may have us hitting the revs instead of hitting the brakes.
discuss.

Never said I blip to warn someone about to cut me up. If I've time to blip, I have time to slow or manoeuvre. Then they get the twin air horns...

I see a blip as like a more polite method of catching folk's attention.

So is a rev-bomb the same as a blip?
