They should not allow topless sun bathing on the beach. It was very distracting for my husband who just wanted to relax
I hate it when that happens

The sad thing is that every thing posted is absolutely true.

Oh, for that person that complained about all the taxi drivers being Spanish...let them come to the US where all our taxi drivers are of middle eastern heritage.

A candidate for thread of the year!

Darwin often cures stupid but it is so rampant he just can't keep up.

I had to read #14 about the hairdressers three times before I caught the double meaning.

I blame those accidents in the video more on the county or city having jurisdiction. Fourteen feet is minimum clearance on most roadways yet here is an overpass with an eleven foot clearance that is causing considerable problems but is allowed to continue in use without being fixed. The repair cost every time this happens even if eventually paid for by the person hitting it is probably more than the cost of a permanent fix. Or maybe the AHJ should sue the railroad for allowing the hazard to continue.

Ray, the railroad was there first, so the roads and bridges must comply to their measurements.

Back in the 70's our company was hauling a carpet dryer which we knew was oversized. We sent people on the route to check bridge clearances and were assured all bridges were at least 13'8" which we required. Unfortunately the Georgia DOT paved a part of the interstate under one of the bridges, and failed to remark the bridge to 13'4". Bye Bye carpet dryer.

Due to our diligence and the state's failure, they had to pay for it. The railroad just watched from the sidelines, even though it was their bridge, and slammed the state for damages, too.

This reminds me of a time my father was talked into putting a mattress on top of his sedan by our cousin. He knew it wasn't a great idea but he did it anyway. Well the mattress made it but it slide at least once in front of his windshield. Luckily not much traffic on the road and nobody was hurt but my father said he would never do that again!
