Out of the Blue

Attending that conference yesterday was not only touching because of all the commemoration of my mom, but it also managed to actually be interesting for me, in spite of not being an educator (or educated, for that matter). It can be very easy to be discouraged about the future sometimes, given some of the signs of the times, but knowing there are so many educators out there putting so much thought and effort into how to best serve society and future generations was very heartening.

Actually the hook was attached to the frame of the car. The frame was really weak and just riped off the car.

So how much did it cost? What did you tell the insurance company?

I got to see the Car Snow Pull video now, thanks bronco!

Good lord, should I even start with how stupid they are? Or the 3 ways from the moment I saw the tow rope hooked to the truck, the 3 ways to get the car un-stuck without that damn truck?

Stupid + idiot =Stupidoits

This is our future….scary

The problem is there were all of those guys standing around. If they all got on the ass end of that car and pushed it would have come free easily.

Even more of a problem is that with all those guys standing around, no one was savvy enough about towing to follow the rule of placing a jacket or something over the tow line in case it snapped. If it had snapped, they would have learned why that's important, as chances are one of them would have lost an eye or a limb... or worse.

Everybody at work agrees that if their children did something this stupid it would require banishment from ther repsective families.

As opposed to???

Putting it in neutral.

The problem was they didn't hook the tow belt to the actual frame of the car, and used the bumper instead.

Yeah it's not to everyone's tastes - Fawlty Towers is obviously a classic, but it's funny in a different way to The Office. The Office is great because anyone that has been in that sort of office environment and dealt with those sort of people it rings true in a very uncomfortable way - kinda like Dilbert to the power of 100. It isn't laugh-out-loud-at-a-man-hitting-a-car-with-a-tree (which is great, don't get me wrong) but it's real squirm in your seat at just how embarrassing it is. But in a great and extremely funny way. Horses for courses, as they say.

Sorry, but as an Englishman I must defend the Office. When we in the UK heard it was going Stateside

Fair enough, but as an Englishman myself ive got to slate it as crap, because it is.

Fawlty Towers is in a different league.

I'm glad that Mystic River and Lost in Translation as well as LOTR got recognition.

Ugh... Mystic River was full of great acting, but it ended up being such a bad movie. I thought it was predictable (although apparently the critics didn't...) and the ending had some major problems. I guess I'm kind of torn; I thought the movie was overall bad, but the acting was superb. Oh well.

God, that Quizno's banner doen't inspire hunger in me, it makes me SICK!!! What were they thinking???

It's clearly aimed at the internet crowd...I've got a friend who's a Quizno's nut, and I think I'll install that screensaver on his machine the next time he's not looking...it's both disturbing and hilarious at the same time.

One things for sure, The Hobbit the movie will be better than the book. The Hobbit's writting style was ghastly, unlike LOTR. It was however written as a sort of childrens book.
