Let that be a lesson to us all....

NEVER get into a fight with a guy who drives one of those big honkin' trucks!!!!

Good thing it doesn't appear anyone was in the pick-up. *whew*

I sure wouldn't want to be the one charged with changing and patching the tires and innertubes on those things! [Linked Image]

Relax, alright? My old man is a television repairman, he's got this ultimate set of tools. I can fix it.

Have you seen the tools used for these things? They're huge!

Remember the unwritten road rule folks:

Right of way goes to the vehicle with the largest tires! [Linked Image]

Here's one of my favorite "Overloaded" Photos:

Here's the accompanying Commentary with this picture posted at www.Safteng.net

The car is still running, as can be witnessed by the exhaust. A woman is either asleep or otherwise out in the front seat passenger side. The guy driving it was jogging up and down on Rt. 925. (in the background) Witnesses said their physical state was OTHER than normal. The driver finally came back after the police were called, and was found crouched behind the rear of the car, attempting to cut the twine around the load! Luckily, the police stopped him and had the load removed. The materials were loaded at Home Depot. Their store manager said they had the customer sign a waiver. While the plywood and 2X4s are fairly obvious, what you can't see is the back seat, which contains -- are you ready for this? -- 10 bags of concrete @ 80 lbs. each. They estimated the load weight at 3000 lbs. Both back tires exploded, the wheels bent and the back shocks were driven through the floorboard.

Hmmm....

It's a LOWRIDER!!!!

Riding HIIIIIIGHHH..... [Linked Image]

I wonder what the repair bill for that car came out to be...what a pity. It looked like a nice car but now it also seems like the frame is bent and would have to be straightened out and reinforced...or is that just the lighting in the picture?

How did that skinny twine manage to hold all that crap without snapping?
