When i was about 18 i went to Tahoe/Reno area and was thinking to myself “this road is rather narrow and winding and id hate to be caught in the rain out here…” About 30 seconds latter it started to rain. Then my next thought was “ah this road is going to be slippery not to mention its got lots of turns…” I then decided not to test fate further and slowed down to like 25 miles an hour and after about a minute of driving uber slow the car lost total control and rolled off a cliff that was about 20 feet down on a slow draping and soft slope. I could not believe my luck.
Of course i called a cop and when he should up 15 minutes latter all he did was give me a ticket ( for unsafe driving) and leave after i told him i was ok. my 84 Z-28 Camaro was wasted.
The thing was i really was thinking i had better drive safe and deliberately going at a snails space when the car lost it.
it was weird.
Imperial Leader is calling other people “arrogant” . . . that’s pretty funny.
Are you saying this as an AMERICAN? Or as another citizen of the world? (please say American, please say American)
I am saying this as a US’an a term i learned from a good friend. From now on thats what im calling all European- Americans. You are blinded by the light… such arrogance is a trait of those nations and people still thinking they run things but have lost their clout a long time ago. No im not talking about you!
Now for a word from our sponsers:

Seeing Hooker was never going to take the offensive, Lee pulled two more Divisions, those of South Carolinian RH Anderson and Georgian Lafayette McLaws from in front of Hooker and led them himself against Sedgwick in conjunction with Jubal Early. It was to be a day of frustration for Lee, as he could not prod McLaws forward and get the 3 division attack going. Sedgwick withdrew over Banks’ Ford when he lost Marye’s Heights to Early.(Early had a great battle.)
This was the cue for Hooker to call the campaign over and he withdrew over US Ford on the 5th. Casualties were high for the four day battle: 13000 for Lee and 17000 for Hooker. Lee’s proportion was too high, considering he only had 60000 to start with.
Lee and the South had bettered an army twice the size of their own and given Virginia breathing space. Lee’s next move, as it had been in 62, after a victory, was to move North.
Jackson would never again be Lee’s “right arm”’ as he passed away on the 10th from complications from his amputation.
His last words were: let us cross over the river and rest in the shade of the trees.
I’m even more stressed out with some of the personalities on this site lately.
I have a pretty-good idea where YG is coming from and why he had to part from the site… I have a feeling this trend will continue until something is done to stop the downward trend that is compelling the good people like YG from leaving.
When can I buy your ticket?
Witches ride brooms because Nature abhors a vacuum!
Caffeine is my shepherd; I shall not doze.
It maketh me to wake in green pastures.
It leadeth me beyond the sleeping masses.
It restoreth my buzz.
It leadeth me in the paths of consciousness for its name’s sake.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of addiction,
I will fear no Equal -
For thou art with me;
Thy cream and thy sugar they comfort me.
Thou preparest a carafe before me in the presence of The Starbucks.
Thou anointest my day with pep; my mug runneth over.
Surely richness and taste shall follow me all the days of my life,
And I will dwell in the House of Mocha forever.
Our lager who art in barrels, hallowed be thy drink.
Thy beer doth come, I will be drunk, at home as in the tavern.
Give us this day our foamy head, and forgive us our spillages
as we forgive those who spill against us.
And lead us not to incarceration, but deliver us from hangover.
For thine is the beer, the bitter, and the lager, forever and ever.
Feeling Stressed Out?
Picture yourself near a stream.
Birds are softly chirping
in the crisp cool mountain air.
Nothing can bother you here.
No one knows
this secret place.
You are in total seclusion
from that place
called “the world.”
The soothing sound of a
fills the air
with a cascade
The water is clear.
You can easily
make out the face
of the person
whose head you’re
under the water.
