All the person driving a lexus saw in their passenger window as they started to change lanes before looking.



Good thing the 3.7 makes a hell of a sound at wide open throttle, the obvious large white truck wasn't visible enough being right next to them.

I had to do dust control today spraying thousands of gallons of water as our excavator moves dirt and concrete. It's been raining heavily for the last four hours while I have been spraying, thankfully I'm off now and in my truck with the heat on drying.

Well Ohio could have been the next state to legalize marijuana tonight. But it wasn't.

Issue 3 on the states ballot was a bill funded by a group called Responsible Ohio. Their plan was to put the entire marijuana market in the hands of 10 CEO's that would regulate everything and roll in the profits. If you wanted to grow your own, you had to buy a $50 permit, then buy all your seeds from one company. You would be limited to 4 flowering plants per person no bigger than 8oz. (I think it was 4 flowering, not quite sure. What I do know is that you were only limited to 4 8oz plants at a certain stage of growth, but unlimited plants at other stages.) You can share your home grown but you can't sell it. 21 and over only.

Does that sound like a good idea? I don't think so. We want a free market, not a corporate monopoly. But people are losing their shit here. Calling everyone who voted no fucking morons and the like. Polls showed that a majority of Ohioans want legal weed but we don't support Responsible Ohio. Just makes me angry how people are acting over this.

Went to pepboys today to see if they still had cell phone power packs, when I started looking a sales associate asked if I needed help, I said no I'm just looking, about five minutes later another associate asks if I need help, I say no again, then the previous person comes and asks again but says I look suspicious because I keep staring at him, um well aaalllrrriight even though I never looked at you. The only time I looked toward him was when a service tech told a customer her tire pressure monitor light was on and she proceeded to say"oh thats always been on", then I said yeah you might want to get that fixed.

When I got my braces out something like 5 or 6 years ago they put a metal brace behind my bottom teeth and never did anything with it since. I started asking the dentist if they could remove it 2 years ago and they alwaus said no... well, last night I took one bite of (some very good) cheesecake and it broke and a part of it came out, so now I am missing the whole back on one tooth, and the other tooth it was on still has a sharp metal plate on it. I would go to the dentist today but I have a huge test in Physics and if I miss it I fail the class. So now I have a hurt tooth and a hurt tounge, and still have to take a test in half an hour.

It could have been about anything to do with springs... he gives a wide range of things it could be about, then chooses one topic to quiz us on. But I ended up feeling pretty good about it.

Cool! I enjoyed the mechanical part of physics, the electrical part is based off of voodoo I think

I can do all the electrical stuff as well but still don't completely understand hoe electronics work. There's just little elves who want to start fires waiting in there.

It's awful. I'm glad I'm away from my hometown in the winters. It's going to help save my truck. The ford dealer in my hometown has a couple 09-11 f150s that were local trade in's for 2015's and the frame is nearly gone on em' because of the insane amount of salt they use here.

You know, I've never really understood the whole ranger lean complaints. I regularly carry 4-500 lbs of feed on my driver side due to ease of unloading and loading and my cooler (empty when it's this cold out) is on the other side. Even with a full tank I've never had the issue. And in the summer I have that big cooler loaded down with ice and drinks (prolly pushing 200 lbs at that point) and it's usually on my driver side. I just don't see the validity of mass complaint nor care for complainers.

I will agree. My '98 has 250,000 miles, and has carried it's fair share of heavy tool bags, usually on the drivers side because I would just toss them in and then get in. To this day it sits level side to side, as does my '07. I just figured there was some part of the story I hadn't heard, and really didn't care enough to look more.

Default Thank you expensive brakes.

Nearly got killed today on the highway. This lady cut me off and slammed on her brakes not even 2 inches from me.

The story:
She was driving 40 on a merging lane that hooks onto a road that people go 75-80 on, so when she moves over to the right lane I pass her in the left to gain speed for the highway. Well apparently she didn't like that, she swerves onto the highway (dangerous enough as is) and roars by me in her old crappy Tahoe, then once she gets JUST In front of me, swerves over and slams on her brakes. Being in a truck without airbags that wouldn't have been good for me. I slammed on mine and swerved over to the left lane to get away but she follows me and repeatedly taps her brakes to slow me down. Then she speeds back up and goes on like nothing happened. All of this happening within like 10 seconds. The traffic behind us slowed down quite a lot, and move away into the far lanes because they probably though they were about to witness a wreck. All I could do was set my hand on the horn and write her plates down. But of course there's nothing the cops could do anyways.

Anyone else had experiences like this before? Also why would this have been worth gravely injuring yourself or others (and her kids in the back seat I believe)
