That's just a typical race for them. Many people have been killed in it. Hit a patch of sand or dirt and you're dead.


While jogging near Huddart Park a few years ago, I saw a guy hit a pine cone while zipping down the hill on his bike. He skittered on the road like a skipping stone on water.

He got up and said he was OK, but he was definitely not OK, with small patches scraped off so you could see the layer of fat below, and even muscle. He didn't seem quite aware of his situation, so I asked him for his wife's phone number after seeing his wedding ring, and started to explain to her that she should come and get him, and she hung up on me.

A crowd gathered and someone else called an ambulance, so I left.

I hope that guy divorced his wife. Shit if a workplace acquaintance got injured that I slightly hated, I would have intervened.

I've been in a serious accident before, a concussion. What I learned from that is if you have a concussion, you won't realize it, even if you are thinking "do I have a concussion?" I could name the president, and other similar things, but I wasn't certain where I lived exactly. I found my place and went to sleep, the stupidest possible thing I could have done. When I woke up, I discovered what broken ribs feel like, it's the worst pain I've ever felt, I didn't lie down again for a month. I literally slept in a chair with a bunch of towels and blankets on my lap laying on top of them. Sneezing, coughing, laughing - was excruciating pain.

You can't feel pain when you're in shock. Interesting experience. Funny, we all stop acting stupid once we get really hurt.

It's also interesting in that I didn't want help either. I think this is natural in men, not to show weakness, no matter how fucked up we are. I imagine if I got shot in the chest, I would blow it off as I bled to death and drowned in my own blood. We're stoopid..

I'm going to watch Monty Python and the Holy Grail now.

I'm proud of Americans no matter where they or their ancestors came from!

Literally - Drive Humps. German has fun with their similar word for drive - Fahren. "Ausfahrt Verbotten" comes to mind.

The more I learn, the more I feel I'm not getting anywhere.

Actually, black on yellow is just a warning. Black on white is law.

I've been to traffic school a lot. One time I got to keep my ticket off my record by taking a red cross CPR class.

I had to go once when I got two speeding tickets in a few months.

The first one was for going 74 in a 65 zone.

The second was because I was being tailgated by an unmarked white van and sped up to get away from it. The white van was actually tracking my speed for the police, something they do as an alternative to using radar.

Traffic school was really punishment, not school.
