Explain THAT to your insurance company – That was funny
I really loved these. Some of them make you wonder if the driver was on drugs…, or maybe even the vehicle itself!

A Week Of Links
So one of my friends randomly does this about once a month…he posts cool, relevant (to his life), weird, interesting, or just random websites that he has visited recently.
I am going to try doing this once a week or ever so often, especially if I do not have much other content. Because 1. I do not blog as much as I would like to and this is an easy weekly post and 2. I am already visiting cool, weird, relevant, interesting, and random websites on a regular basis, but I usually post them on Facebook. Now I will also post them here…(like I said this will be easy):
1. My main source of Facebook link post is POP URLs. Pop Urls is a really cool website. Simply put it is a genuine aggregator. It takes all the buzz from all of the top news websites (like Digg, delicious, reddit, yahoo, metafilter, technorati, youtube, google, newsvine, nytimes, and much much more) all on one updated page!
So Yellow is going out of business.
This is good news for me and UPS Freight, as we will pick up a LOT of new business.
This is great news for me, because I will be back to a normal, regular, steady schedule. More hours and more money.
This is terrible news because of the economy. It is terrible also because our dock is already loaded and busy, there is no way we can support all of YELLOW’s business. There simply is not enough room on the dock!
Another challenge will be the fact that we will be hiring newbies, so the dock will be flooded with more workers who do not know what they are doing, etc. But this will eventually not be a big problem.
Great game huh? One of the closer Super Bowl games. It was fun to watch.
I’ve never been a Steelers fan and had no reason to root for them, so I did not.
I was really excited for about 2 minuets. But at least it was a good game.
Working with UPS Freight as a dockworker. It is great. Fun. But have not been getting a lot of hours. Slow economy in general, plus winter is a very slow freight season. 😦
Been working on two classes at a time this semester which is tough. And both classes are challenging and require a lot more research and effort than I am used to since I graduated, from Ohio University anyways. Exciting paper about Paul and the law which his coming along!
Our church is in the middle of closing on our new building. Which is really exciting. We are going to have our first service in the building on Sunday! And Thanksgiving meal! mmm.
We are closing in on Dec. 13th, the date of our production. That is exciting! We need to practice more for sure though. The director might have her baby within a week or two!
I have been busy getting the float and set ready! The Lancaster parade is Saturday so not much more time!
The doctor said it is healing up great but apparently it takes a long time to heal all the way! Despite how great it feels it is only 50% healed!
Keeps breaking. Always fun to embarrass myself trying to fix it.
No luck yet.
In our culture in the movies, tv or where ever, a person who is “rough” around the edges is sometimes portrayed as a hero, as a attractive (whether the character is a good guy or bad guy).
The trait of being “rough” is not thought to be so bad. We can all relate to it. No one is perfect we all have rough areas in our personality that we are working on. We want to know that other people are like us. In fact it makes us feel better to know someone else is worse off, in some cases…and in other cases a person who is so “rough,” is a hero of sorts to someone who has lived a “sheltered” lifestyle (at least in some cases.)
A thought I had though is that no one really likes a person who always play the “rough” personality card. No matter what happens these people come across as ‘jerks’ (to use polite language). Later they might come up to you and say they are “working on it.” But the truth is they do not struggle with “rough patches”…their entire being is one sharp edge.
No one likes being poked by a sharp edge. It hurts.
