Political commentary from a nuclear point of view.
Whoa. What happened?
I rolled over my Jeep this morning on the way to work. I'm fine. Jeep...not so much.
I'm so glad you're fine! Been on the road 12 hours with 3 to go. I've seen lots of crashes where the people weren't so lucky. Lots of blowing snow.
You *had* to pick today.Glad you're OK (that's an understatement), and sorry for your loss!
Yeah, I think that is the first vehicle I ever truly loved.
Glad you're alright. Unfortunately, the archaic terminal I was on earlier wouldn't allow me to make a wonderfully awful joke, before you explained the situation. I will, however, share it anyway:Dude, you shouldn't have left you SUV out in a field. Those darn teenagers will sneak up on them while they're sleeping and tip 'em right over
Good advice...teenagers are capable of anything.Wasn't a field though, but a ditch. I spun 180 and crossed lanes into a rather busy side of the highway. I was lucky that there was no oncoming traffic (must have been because it was the Friday before the holiday weekend or something). I just slid right on into a steep ditch, got turned over upside down and ended up hanging from my seat belt.No injuries, but that seat belt was so tight I'm a wee bit sore across the rib cage now.Moral of the story: always wear your seat belt. Had I not...I'd either be on an operating table or in a morgue.
The 2 worst accidents I was ever in involved broken seatbelts on the passenger side, where I was seated at the time. Afetr the second, the cop said he was surprised I walked away, considering how hard I hit the windshield. I've always wanted to flip a vehicle, though. Never had a vehicle that I wanted to flip. Also, never wanted to take the chance of actually hurting myself. I could never be a stuntman. Too much of a wimp.
Yeah, I was telling people yesterday, and I'm sure they thought I was crazy, that besides all of the obvious bad stuff involved in the accident, the actual flipping over part was kind of fun.But it isn't the fall that kills you; it's the sudden stop at the end. Getting out of bed this morning was an adventure.I'm thinking of installing a full harness and roll cage in my next vehicle.
