***I know they shouldn't have done this but I think it's petty to pay in pennies just to be an ass.

http://www.sfgate.com/news/article/Michigan-man-suing-parking-ticket-pennies-defecate-12392629.php


The pennies at least were rolled, so it isn't like the clerk would have had to count them out individually.

There was another one not too long ago... maybe last year, I can't remember exactly, where one guy rolled 3 or 4 WHEELBARROWS of unrolled pennies to pay a fine. And what do ya know, they ACCEPTED them! :S :D:D:D

***Drifting; It's not just for ricers anymore: http://digg.com/video/firetruck-sliding:o



There's a guy steering the rear end in the cab at the back. Seen these before.

Well, I'll be damned; Watching it again, I can actually see the rear wheels steering.
This is news to me.
Seems really weird to have two people, both controlling steering of one vehicle.

It's been this way for decades.

Granted, I come from an aviation/cop/fireman/military ( in alphabetical order) family, so maybe what I thought was common knowledge perhaps is not?

It's also a full size full length ladder truck. They come with that feature. It's pretty cool too. Helps them maneuver around corners and tight spots without running over corner signs and posts, etc...

I just hadn't seen them use the rear steering for changing lanes like that one in the video you posted did.

Damn... I'd like to know what her BAC level was, to drive for 8 miles without noticing the sign stuck through the sunroof. :S:o

Ever seen the anti smoking commercial where the guy tries to buy a pack of cigarettes and the cashier says it's not enough, then the guy gets pliers out and rips one of his teeth out?

Who knew e-cigs could take a few out in one bang? :oB|

I feel it, when I sorrow most;

Than never to have loved at all.

"Dispatchers made a note of the address of the call and let the owners keep the decoration up." And hopefully also said to callers, "If you DO see someone hanging from a roof with a ladder next to them, GRAB THE DAMN LADDER AND PROP IT UP!!11!!"
