gotta love the mom and brother's whining too


oh wait, it's even cleaner still Two people killed in wrong-way crash|WOAI: San Antonio News

About time they started killing themselves more often.
This first story was right by my house! Guess the cops were out to get him and beat him to death. Wouldn't be shocked if a lawsuit is coming based on ethnicity and blah blah blah....

The second story....I just don't understand how the hell you get on the highway going the wrong way??? Obviously intoxicated, but the logistics are beyond me???

I've had my share of getting messed up to the point of where ugly women seem not so ugly, saying stupid things made sense, and where I spent a lot more money than I should have, but never to the point where driving the wrong way on the highway would seem like an option.. Then again driving anything anywhere never seemed like a good option.

the weird thing is this was the second time he had an issue with the police. They said the last time he was beaten and in a coma.....
I did see he was schizoprenic. I have worked with some students diagnosed with this and the strength they have is amazing when they are angry so I can see where the police can struggle with such an individual.

Like referenced in this song??? It is just beyond me that someone can even get out of the parking lot to get onto the highway in that kinda shape. At least the truck driver was okay physically, but probably not mentally. That'll be with that guy for the rest of his life I'd imagine.

I was thinking more along the lines of PCP... it definitely messes with your head, but isn't a mental illness. Of course the craptastic journalistic skillz of the local media leaves way too many questions unanswered. And the truck driver should wear this as a badge of honor. It would suck to kill someone, but at least it was a POS that didn't belong with the rest of the civilized world.

and this is a great way to end any day

Rainbow Potato Chips

Saw them on a shelf here and figured they'd be good since the burned chips in a bag are always a treat. They're like freaking crack in a chip bag and exceeded all my expectations. The four of us went through almost an entire bag in one day and I'm going to pick up a couple more to bring home.

BM chips? LOL I'm gonna pass.

The wrong way driver article has been posted three times. Me, in the shock probation thread, rd here, and that other guy in its own thread.

It's a Detroit company and they only use Michigan potatoes, except for a few months out of the year when they can't grow them. Buy local and support local is huge up here.
