By the way it is homicidal, not homocidal. Homocidals are people who like to kill gays and lesbians. I am certainly not that type of crazy.

The officer said he had me clocked at both 66 and 68 mph (which is surprising because I had my cruise control on on flat road and rarely if ever drive faster than 65). He told me that he passed a semi/car hauler that was traveling 64 in order to pull me over. I was really puzzled. I asked him, "So, you wouldn't have stopped me of I was going 64?" He said, "It's called selective enforcement." That's what really gets me mad. He stopped a 3000 lb. Honda Element with anti-lock brakes, etc. travelling at 66 rather than a 70 or 80,000 lb. fully loaded semi traveling at 64 mph. Which one is more dangerous? I can stop in less than half the space and time than a semi. I'm more maneuverable. And, because force = mass x accelleration, I would cause exponentially less damage in the event of an accident. The officer used his discretion innapropriately. I live in Indiana and we have about the highest rate of semi related fatalities of any state. On a short section of the Indiana toll road, which I frequent, we have had twenty such semi-induced fatalities since the first of this year. Cops have been using bad science for at least 70 years... it's not working fellas. It's time they start taking an empirical apprach, implementing technologies that do work (i.e., traffic calming, differential pavement, those things that show your speed, etc.) Last year, a commercial van driver ran a four way stop and instantly killed my uncle, who was riding his motorcycle to post flyers raise money for the traveling Viet Nam war Memorial. His life would have been saved if the State had put their energies into installing rumble strips and additional signage to alert the driver of the upcoming 4-way stop. But no, they are more concerned with citing Honda elements on lonely stretches of straight, flat highways, on beautiful days out in the boondocks. I don't know if anybody actually read this, but if you did, thanks for listening to my little rant. Boo cops.
I drove through Indiana on my way out to see a fight in IA, I have never in my life seen so many semi trucks. I took photos because it was that unbelievable, nothing but trucks for miles, it was some of the scariest driving I have ever experienced, being completely surrounded by large trucks....

The sopranos series finally, that REALLY pissed me off. Especially since I missed a bunch of episodes and now that I saw the BS ending I have no reason to want to see what lead up to it cause it all ends like crap.

I just remember right before 911 occurred Colin Powell was on his way to Bogota to have discussions about the instability of the region and drugs of course. Colombia was the hot-button issue at the moment and I was terrified. The likes of FARC, ELN, government troops and paramilitary (on either side) have been fighting for over 15 years in dense rain-forest. These guys make Al Qaeda's methods seem tame in comparison. Fighting with tanks, helicopters and jets is almost impossible when dealing with that type of terrain. You basically have men on the ground with very seasoned fighters. To our credit our soldiers are some of the best trained/armed fighters in the world, but if you read the history books knowing the lay of the land is paramount to most factors in warfare.

I have family down there that are more educated than most people I know up here. They speak three to four languages and are engineers and lawyers, but can they get a green-card to work here, of course not. Our immigration laws are pathetic. We continue to allow all the unskilled labor to languish progress in agriculture and the like, but someone who could actually make us compete on the world stage no way. Stupid f'n politicians. We need to clean house Colombian style.....ahhhhhhhh the carnage....its so sweet.

The unskilled folks artifically supress costs (i.e., inflation). I guess for the powers that be, it is more important to bring in unskilled workers to reduce the cost of tomatoes, manufacturing, construction, and lawncare than it is to bring in professionals (that would compete with them for jobs). I say we outsource all three branches of government to San Marino.

Places like Holland have made incredible advances in agriculture ( and I'm not just talking about hydroponic sensemilia ), which if put into place would create incredible opportunities for engineers and scientists.
All the illegals building in most cases don't have licenses and are putting up lower quality structures that don't stand the test of time.....the list goes on. We have to face the fact the world economy has become predominantly international and the possibility to pull inwards is no longer an option. Our physical isolation which insulated us in decades past will no longer protect us from the hemorrhaging of jobs and money to other places. The only way I see we can reverse this is to incentivize business to stay with exceptional labor and quality that they can't get anywhere else regardless of price, and as they say the cream will rise to the top.

That's hot.
I started this post a while ago, and I think I lost it. It's gotta be around here somewhere. Hmmm? Anyhow, I related your story to someone today, because I thought it was funny, and they did too. But, it was kind of awkward. How do you retell a funny story, etc. you hear on the forums? What should I say, "ElleJ told me..." or, "This girl on the forums said her grandma... " or, "Strafer's buddy from KATG said... " or "My friend said... " or, "This girl I know in New Jersey said... " etc. Whomever I'm relating the story to is bound to say, "Who? Wha? When were you in New Jersey?" It sure would be a lot easier if you guys were on TV instead of the Internet, then they would know who the heck I was talking about. Man, I'm confused.
