In Search of History's Greatest Monsters

Vladimir Putin's been getting a lot of bad press recently, what with him being an enormous scumbag and walking into other people's countries without an invitation, sticking two fingers up at the world because he can turn or gas off and pull fifty billion quid out of our banks.

Anybody would think that he had some sort of plan.

Despite unfavourable comparisons with Adolf Hitler, Putin is hardly at the Fuhrer's level. Not yet anyway.

Neither is he a Stalin, a Genghis Khan, Idi Amin, Pol Pot or a General Pinochet.

So, I ask out loud, who exactly IS history's greatest monster?

I didn't have long to wait.

I found out on the way home last night, stuck behind a Toyota Prius at a mini-roundabout who passed up three clear chances to pull out, adding a good 20-30 seconds to my journey. At the next mini-roundabout they did exactly the same thing, causing no end of minor inconvenience.
Utter scum, I'm sure you will agree.

That's as nothing compared to the oxygen thief I encountered once I hit the open road. He was one of those hideous devils who drive at 20 mph below the speed limit, but immediately put their foot down once you hit a straight bit. As soon as the overtaking opportunity has passed, they immediately hit the brakes and keep a constant 38mph for the next five miles.

I know what you're thinking: Re-open the Nuremburg Trials.

I was only trying to attract your attention. Seems like it worked.

Putin would've had him shot.

He's also told the EU to fuck off, I quite like him.

"... he can turn or gas off"
Useless at multi-tasking then?

You could yell "Tourist!" at the Prius driver, and be right. In the U.S. we don't have many roundabouts and we are totally inept at navigating them.
