How about dem thunder boomers that keep ripping thru Arlington?!? Where we you when the big storm hit? I was at the Exxon at the end of Lee hwy. It was like BOOM - and all of a'sudden every single trash can at the gas station went flying horizontally through the air 50 yards east. It was like wild.
And we had a doctors appointment west on 50. So of course being dumb we went. And all the power was out. And the traffic was going no where - and there was a scar in the earth where every single tree was twisted down.
And then it hits me, just how bad the economy has reached. I mean, you look out the window and you can see nothing. Rain, and wind, and debris flying through the air -- and some of these poor working stiffs can't afford headlights. I mean, I feel sorry for them. You cant see them for nothing. It must be like the driving version of Russian-Roulette, driving during a thunder boomer without your headlights on. And all I can figure is they dont have the money to buy new headlight bulbs.
It cant be that they just did not turn them on. I mean, it costs nothing to turn headlights on. It does not use up any extra electricity - you got tons of it juicing through your car. It does not decrease your gas mileage. And it makes you massively more visible and safer. (oh yeah, and you avoid getting a traffic ticket and having your car insurance go up - as it is required by law). Only a complete and utter moron would drive during a thunder boomer without headlights on
So for all those poor shmos out there who dont have their car headlights on 'cause they can afford a new light bulb, I say, let's pass the hat, raise that $2 bucks and get them that new light bulb.
And for all those stupid shmos who just plain dont turn them on, are you familiar with the Darwin Awards??
