    No arthritis (YET!), I'm bald, I don't use Viagra, and my boss is only a few years younger than me and knows more than I do about this side of things. Senility is my only hope!

    That is the common affliction called officitis.

    It usually includes but is not limited to reduced mental acuity, decreasing ability to handle stress, and a general piss poor attitude that develops.

    The frame of the trailer actually looks fine. The walls are only aluminum, they're going to give under an amount of stress that the average man can put on them. If the frame was damaged too, you'd see the wall going in with it. The in and out makes it really look like the frame didn't really take any damage.

    I saw a rather new looking Utility dry van broken clean in half, #### near right in the middle of the trailer on I-85 south bound Monday in GA or SC. I couldn't see the load but it wasn't spilled all over the road. I would really like to know what causes this type of failure (I know main component damage but more specifically). This trailer and the tractor powering it looked rather well cared for.
