We recently had a white trash couple who had their two children taken away from them because of abuse. They had a three year old little girl that was found in a field last winter rolled up in a ball and suffering from hypothermia. She was found because a house adjacent to the field had a Beagle that was barking profusely from inside the house. When the owner let the dog out he led him to the little girl and she was saved. The judge called this an act of god. I guess he(the judge)had dyslexia. Anyway, thank dog, the children were taken away from those monsters and hopefully will be adopted by someone who will give them a good home.

Just remember, the sun is like cleavage, you can glance at it for only a second, but if you wear sunglasses, you can look for much longer.
im in the totality path, but barely. may drive like 20 minutes so that it'll last longer.

I hate to be a cynical asshole but I don't give a flying fuck about the eclipse. I thought it was last month during a "Gilligan's Isle" marathon and I gleefully missed it.

Cynical would be saying other people shouldn't enjoy it, not just having different interests. As someone who finds space and astronomy fascinating, this is just as cool for me whether or not you get a kick out of it too.

My wife and I are driving 15 hours to see it. I've been waiting 9 years for this. I'd hitchhike there if I had to.

Meeting a friend from Chicago in Denver next month. He's flying from Chi-town & I'm flying in from Raleigh, NC.

Weird thing was we met in Denver in the 70s, but had lived 40 miles apart in Chicagoland our whole lives.

My flight arrives 20 minutes prior to his (or is supposed to) & have a car rental lined up. 2 hotel rooms as well. We'll be there a week. Looking forward to seeing my old buds & smokin some primo new buds. I'll be like a kid in a candy store.

I was talking to the airline broad about how I haven't flown since 9/11 & will a full body cavity search be done on me. She said, "Oh no, not at all!" I said, "But what if I want 1?"

By definition it would mean that other people are selfish for enjoying it and I didn't mean it like that. I just don't get the excitement.

it happens every year in mid august. Some years are more per minute , some less.
get a good lawn chair and sit back and enjoy the show...they don't all come from the same direction so move your head around a bit.

More info...speeding is difficult to prove. right of way is easier.
witnesses?
If he's at fault get a lawyer or the insurance company will burn you.
I got rear ended by an inattentive driver which resulted in some whiplash and back pain. ICBC offered up a 5000$ settlement offer...my lawyer got me 48,000$. Big fucking difference.

Your car insurance company is in the business of paying out the least possible amount they can get away. A lawyer will get you the amount they "Should" have offered in the first place. Insurance lawyers generally work for a percentage cut of the settlement...general ly 1/3. The more they get for you the more they get for themselves, so they are motivated.

I've been put at fault.. which I was expecting. I got hit making a left turn where the far lane was obscured by a lineup of oncoming people turning left.. I didn't see anyone coming, no movement, thought it was clear so I slowly went for it. Then really fast this dude appears and bam..

It's pretty likely he was speeding when you consider that he hit me hard enough to tear off the front of my car and spin me 180 degrees, on a 50 km/h road. But it's something I won't be able to prove was the case as there was no camera footage anywhere and the other driver obviously isn't going to admit he was speeding.. so what can you do, he had the right of way.

they might say it was a fifty-fifty due to forensic evidence that to move an object of a certain weight needs X amount of speed...but that only screws him and still doesn't help you.
There is a rule though that if the light turns yellow and you are in the intersection turning then you"OWN" the intersection and have the right of way to complete your turn and clear the intersection. and anyone entering afterwards is in violation essentially running a yellow into red light

Oh I hate those people
They could yield to the left handed turner, but instead would prefer to teach them a lesson by cutting off their nose to spite their own faces.
Fuck you for turning in front of me will ya! Lol
I'm going to crash my own fucking car!
