He was hitting cars on one side with the front of the bus and the other side with the rear. And then he kept going when it got to the bottom. Just said fuckit and hit the gas. I actually called Metro to tell them about it, it was truly ridiculous how much damage was done. But i never heard back. Hey I tried.
    haha. reminds me of this video. minimal amount of carnage but the fact he kept going in plain sight is hilarious.

    and another local who had built their homes out of pocket took out mortgages to finance the repower.
    When I lived in Cordova in the summer of '89 the guy that I worked for, Bobby, told me that his dad and some friends were the ones that got the ski area up and running. Sounds like it was quite the adventure getting that old lift up there from ID and then dragging all the bits up the hill and reassembling it was a herculean effort. I also heard that he shot himself in the head a few years ago after going somewhat nutty.

    I slept in today.

    That's way bigger news than it sounds, it's been a while.

    The last time my auto mehanic worked on our CRV he was 6 hours into a 2 hour job (ABS, not his fault, it was the salt) when I pulled the plug and we shared the cost. That was about 6 months ago. Driving my older TJ, I stopped by today to bring him a loaf of apple/raisin bread from the bakery.

    Greg: What's the problem? (He always greets me that way)

    Me: I was at the bakery and this stuff is Gooood. Remember last summer when I had a shimmy in the front when I turned hard lefts and I said I'd make an appointment to bring it is soon?

    Greg: Yep

    Me: Well the shimmy went away a week later and never came back. Remember last month when my heater controls wouldn't work and I said I'd bring it in the following week?

    Greg: Yup

    Me: Well they started working fine a week later. Greg, now I don't know how you're doing it, but you need to find a way to charge for these services. BTW, as long as I'm here, my left front blinker only works intermittently and I was hoping you could fix it like you fixed the shimmy and the heater.


    Last month, I walked into the local gun shop and said to the owner behind the counter that since all my neighbors voted for Trump and as I am a liberal, would he please recommend a firearm that would be best to kill a human at a distance of 15 feet with little or no training. But that was last month, not today.

    ^That reads like Prairie Home Companion (or Mayberry RFD) meets Breaking Bad, but I like it.

    Some jackass in London decided to change 50 people's job descriptions without telling them or training them to take on their new responsibilities.

    I wonder if Larry works for BNP. Larry if you do, shoot me a PM, I know a kid starting there (not my kid). Smart kid but everybody needs help if they can get it.

    Hey ice- not a bnp garçon. My suits aren't tight enough, ha ha. Tell that kid to take advantage of any and all help offered. What's he doing there?

    Last week. Was in a Board of Zoning Appeals Hearing.

    Issue was whether the building inspector had observed various structure being erected in a campground that were allegedly in violation of county zoning ordinances. County zoning ordinances are in a book with about 60 pages in it. Building inspector is a contractor that failed, and went to work for the county.

    Me: So you were hired by the county in 2011?
    Building inspector: No, 2010
    Me: You issued a notice of violation in 2015?
    BI: Yes
    You were in the campground multiple times each year from 2010 to 2015?
    BI: Yes
    Me: But you didn't say anything to anyone about the structures being in violation of the zoning ordinances?
    BI: No, I am familiar with the building codes, I didn't know much about the zoning ordinances. I had to read them, and this particular section is in the back of the book.
    Me: So it took you five years to read to the book?

    Hilarity ensued.
    In order to properly convert this thread to a polyasshat thread to more fully enrage the liberal left frequenting here...... (insert latest democratic blunder of your choice).

    It's my son's girlfriend, some trading shit, my eyes glazed over. She'll do fine, she's unusually attractive and super smart and determined. Speaks French like a native speaker so that can't hurt at that place.

    If she wants a good career she may want to get out of trading and banking then. Unless she can get the neanderthals to make some sexually offensive comments, then I hear the settlements are pretty lucrative.

    There is so much I cannot be typing on the internet these days.

    But what I will say, is that since I got a job bartending at my favorite bar life has been a blast. My best friend swung by this evening around midnight and helped us close down the bar. I walked him home and got to hold him like a lover while he puked all over me in the middle of the street. I'm in the middle of working 60 hours in three days, and everything is still so much fun.

    Larry, did you think to tell that guy he'd have better luck getting run over if he laid down across traffic instead of parallel to it?

    I might have.

    edit: lay, lie, laid, fuck i should know this

    I get a call and letter from our condo property manager because I have been parking in the guest spots when its pouring rain or bringing in groceries as my condo faces the street but is gated and I have the longest walk around from designated parking spot to my front door.

    this bothers no one as we seldom get visitors for the 16 condos in my building but it apparently pisses off one lady in the complex who has nothing better to do and they cant tow it, so they send me letters and notices on my windshield.

    so, I complied and now park on the street about 5 feet from the visitor spots which I have no doubt still pisses that lady. still debating on pouring sugar around her plants so roaches are attracted just for her being a nuisance.
