Some Nice Anti-War Posters.. Link here





Ewww... link

"SHEBOYGAN, Wis. -- A truck driver distracted by his digital music player tipped his semitrailer on Interstate 43 in Sheboygan County, spilling about 40 tons of cow intestines.

"Parts of the interstate were closed for about two hours on Thursday while authorities took care of the mess of beef by-products, including intestines and bones.

"Sheriff's officials said that the 25-year-old driver told them the semitrailer veered off the road as he adjusted his MP3 player. He was taken to the hospital with minor injuries.

"The tractor-trailer, which is owned by Birchwood Transport of Kenosha, had to be towed from the scene."

But Are You Willing to Ignore Months and Months of Reliable Intelligence?

Teen: I'm gonna run for sturgeon general one day.
Father: A sturgeon is a fish. It's Surgeon General, and you can't run for it, the president appoints you.
Teen: Then I'll make him appoint me.
Father: You also have to be a doctor, and in the military... And we know you're not smart enough to be a doctor.
Teen: [Puzzled, offended.]
Father: You could run for Secretary of Defense, though, and you don't really have to be that smart to do that.
Teen, excitedly: Cool, I like guns!

Happy Monday, Sanjay!

Ewww, at cow intestine story...sorry to be a prophet of doom but there are going to be worse (and perhaps scarier) ones as everyone plugs up their ears with iPods and other players!

Sanjay said...

I am afraid you are right, as mre and more vehicles come ready to plug in your music players, some drivers will be more distracted than they already are.
