    Today I saw a guy in a...Vulva. Rear fuel tank strap had been replaced with a yellow ratchet strap. He must have lost the pins to his moose bumper because it was flopped forward. It was one of those scenes where you literally looked twice to make sure that what you were seeing was legit.

    FMCSA head commits to boosting oversight of trucking

    Another clueless person who has never ridden in a truck, let alone drove one that’s saying they’re working for you, the interstate truck driver.
    But they now have it where you make minimum wage.
    My question is, “Since when?”
    Some days I work for no pay? If you drive all that day, delivery the next, that one day you got nothing, on percentage pay.

    So.
    I’m going to go fix my drivers side window, part finally came in, oh, and I’m doing it for free.

    I could be working at McDonald’s for $15/hour minimum wage.

    I have heard Bois D'Arc Apples (Horse Apples?) are a natural spider repellent. They are free by the truckload in East Texas or some flea markets or asian stores might have a few for sale.

    Oddly enough the typical "Pre trip inspection" goes far beyond what is required for Commercial Aircraft between flights. A bit of a headscratcher there.

    You can only meet people where they are. 
    The donkey told the tiger, "The grass is blue."
    The tiger replied, "No, the grass is green ."
    The discussion became heated, and the two decided to submit the issue to arbitration, so they approached the lion.
    As they approached the lion on his throne, the donkey started screaming: ′′Your Highness, isn't it true that the grass is blue?"
    The lion replied: "If you believe it is true, the grass is blue."
    The donkey rushed forward and continued: ′′The tiger disagrees with me, contradicts me and annoys me. Please punish him."
    The king then declared: ′′The tiger will be punished with 3 days of silence."
    The donkey jumped with joy and went on his way, content and repeating ′′The grass is blue, the grass is blue..."
    The tiger asked the lion, "Your Majesty, why have you punished me, after all, the grass is green?"
    The lion replied, ′′You've known and seen the grass is green."
    The tiger asked, ′′So why do you punish me?"
    The lion replied, "That has nothing to do with the question of whether the grass is blue or green. The punishment is because it is degrading for a brave, intelligent creature like you to waste time arguing with an ###, and on top of that, you came and bothered me with that question just to validate something you already knew was true!"
    The biggest waste of time is arguing with the fool and fanatic who doesn't care about truth or reality, but only the victory of his beliefs and illusions. Never waste time on discussions that make no sense. There are people who, for all the evidence presented to them, do not have the ability to understand. Others who are blinded by ego, hatred and resentment, and the only thing that they want is to be right even if they aren’t.
    When IGNORANCE SCREAMS, intelligence moves on.

    Osage Orange...also known as Monkey Brains. The wood from that tree is as hard as locust.
