    Any item that might add some sort of personalization or sense of place is not allowed as such things are an unnecessary "grotesque" display of indulgence. So boring.
    Shockingly accurate.


    I also love, love, love my historical garbage disposal, you should see it. I have it reconditioned annually for only $300. Every now and then it shoots shards of metal into my eyeball but she purrs like a kitten. You donít get that anymore with these fancy new efficient InSinkErators.

    Something to be said for that level of simplicity.

    Rage point - If you're gonna turn fucking do it. Don't signal, slow down, slow down some more then crawl around a wide open turn making everyone behind you nearly come to a stop in a 55mph zone. If it's your driveway you should know the best line into it that you don't have to stop traffic so you can get into a 30 foot wide entrance.

    Just fucking do it and get the fuck out of the way.

    Rage point.. If you're going to turn.. put on your god damned blinker so we know that's why you are slowing down and we're good to pull out from where you're turning in to.. Otherwise we gotta sit here wondering if you're gonna speed up again and NOT turn..
    Go that way really REALLY fast. If something gets in your way, TURN!

    The driver that caused that damage decided to hug one side of the bridge and caused enough damage that the bridge was closed for 4 months. That truck drove through and kept going with pieces of the bridge hanging from it.

    Theyíre gonna need a new sign

    How many times can you restore a bridge before itís not the same bridge?

    God dam man thatís the Ol Millers Run bridge from 1878, before cars. Have some respect, that piece of shit is beautiful.

    Are you ok in other places without covered bridges where they have designated truck routes and the trucks can't use certain roads? Or must every road be designed for every truck? There's no difference between a bridge not rated above a certain weight and a bridge not rated above a certain height.

    I relate to that a little better than these freeway/neighborhood incidents.

    Yeah. Restored 1995

    Whoooosh

    You missed the joke.

    And for all you covered bridge haters fuck off.
    They’re actually pretty cool.
    And they don’t need to be shoveled.

    They are not cool. The only covered bridge that should be allowed are tunnels.

    Clearly the covered bridge haters aren't from around here. If you live someplace without them great. Please stay there

    To be fair, that rig can barely hit 10 mph on a mild hill, soÖ..

    So, kid of a friend cut some guy off, almost caused an accident. The guy followed him and caught up to him in a fast food parking lot and approached his car. The kid told him to fuck off and flashed him the birdÖ. Turns out the guy was an exec at the company the kid (no longer) works at.
    focus.

    They're both lucky they didn't get shot. Driving like an asshole and confronting someone who's driving like an asshole are both bad for your life expectancy these days. Maybe getting fired will teach that kid to keep his cool in the future.

    Im more concerned that an exec would follow a kid and confront his ass. When you hit exec level you need to have some fucking thick skin. Everyone fucking hates you, even the ones that smile at you and say nice things.
