eleven #442: Yeah...flying cars would be the worst thing ever.
Like giving monkeys flamethrowers.
Yeah, but flying cars with flamethrowers, that would be great.
Lance McCormick: ...my actual favorite, the self-driving cars at the 4-way stop where none went first....
John Prine: The Accident
Did not read the whole thing because, do not care to load my brain up with all the details on lib rail fail.
Greetings from beyond the veil.
Dog on the driveway, basking in the bright moonlight. Relatively warm. Hot tomorrow. Can't complain about that.
Sat down with our daughter -- 4yo? -- to watch Mr Rogers. Turned on tv & there was Dan Rather looking serious, with a model of the rocket on his desk.
Oh, yeah. Just remembered. Daughter coming by at 6am to have me drive her to The City. She's accompanying my mother to California for mom's baby brother's 95th birthday party.
* Dives in before Ace is up *
Someone discussing automated automobiles again? Can't resist that dangling hook...
...Hans assembled two bicycles, and they fled Paris just a few hours before it fell....
Wow. I would hate to think of depending on my bicycle assembly skills in the last hour!
Driving home, two-lane, coming up the hill, glare of oncoming car's headlights, there was something I didn't see on the road. But I heard it as we ran over it.
Speaking of airline "safety," Why don't Commercial Airplanes have Parachutes? (from Today I Found Out)
* furiously copying notes in case I should, for some strange reason, find myself in Las Vegas again *
cthulhu: [likes my comment so much, repeats it twice ] Another technique worth considering is driving to the nearest police/highway patrol station.
An online encounter this weekend reminded me of the one and only time, many years ago, that I had a serious road rage encounter.
What's the strangest car crash cause you morons know of?
Didn't crash, but... my brother-in-law was driving a semi when he realized he had a bee up his pants.
BTW, the poster I linked to earlier, No One Predicts the Future, was one page out of a month-long series I did as part of my Daily Doodles series (which lasted a year).
Checking in for a bit before heading to bed. (The discussion I saw earlier about young girls is over now, right? Please?)
Vic: 6 trucks and a car doesn't sound like a hunting accident. Dad's story is not plausible.
US Highway 75 is the corridor that connects here to Tulsa. It's how I go to visit Mom. Along the way is a major Wal-Mart distribution center, so you see their trucks constantly.
"The name doesn't ring many bells."
Geez, Krak. Way to honor the man with a big downer article. What is this, Monday?
Morning, glorious Earthlings!
...two air hostesses started arguing about 'work issues'. ... escalated into a fist fight ... A third female attendant, who tried to calm things down, was hit in the face.
Glad I lived long enough to see astronaut Chris Hadfield doing his version of Space Oddity ... in space. Kinda brought things full circle... or full orbit, or something.
I know what you're linking to without looking. And it was amazing.
Back from checking out the morning thread. Meh. No Vic News for Christmas Eve. Guess that's okay. He had to anniversarize, after all.
Bruce w/aW!: ...LOved seeing that big orange ball clearing and revealing an up right rocket....
Who could ever have guessed that a thread about space travel on an AoSHQ thread would devolve into discussions about zero-G sex?
I did not see that coming.
andycanuck: photo in thumbnail at Drudge a few days ago...
Okay, thanks for clue, andy. I did search Drudge front & archive, but maybe missed it.
Observations from the road
#2 - We noted as we traveled that they just aren't making the old single-floor drive-up-to-your-room motels anymore. They're building hotels.
Howdy, Horde! Homeward bound at last. Got some observations from the road to serve up while fresh in mind.
JohninMd: I say again, God DAMN you, Chris Muir, for making me react like my own flesh and blood are in that car…..
