Another mini misadventure during the morning commute. Apparently it's NOT common knowledge that you don't change lanes during the middle of a multi lane turn. Even as I laid on the horn, he just kept coming. :hopeless:

Was on the way to PT, and saw this Camaro. Didn't think much of it, until he zipped around me and I got a look at their license plate. It said "Batl Cat" Then I noticed the shade of green, and was instantly transported back to the 80's lol

I see those pics and wonder... does the company just look for vacant patches of land and plop all of those charging stations down without worrying about drainage?

It would save the cost & licensing of connecting to a sewage system, I suppose... but if the vehicles can't get to the chargers, they can't use them.

How'd you like to be on electrical 'fumes', navigating to one of these charging stations, and finding 100 stations available--but all of them submerged. Oops.

During this evening's commute. At one of the typical busy intersections, a number of people making this left turn tend to run the light since it's a bit of a long cycle. But today, there happened to be a LEO in traffic.

General rule of thumb, (as far as I know), if you're gonna run a red light make sure there isn't a cop behind you. And if there is, damn sure don't be the last one in the line! :crackup:

One of my employees has that same green on his Camaro... I think he is confused on what team he plays for.. but thats another story entirely!

Edit: He does sport a Man-Bun, so anything is possible right?

Just talked about this on another forum... I was able to zoom in on the wheel..

When the wheel hits the Kia, and flops around, you can see the brake rotor still attached.

Hub Failure.

However this is the first one I've seen north of the border and this far out. Saw a few when I was in Cali last fall. Lots of electrics out there.

How many cans of "Fix-a-Flat" might this take to fix? :jawdrop2:

Not my vehicle, but it has been parked a couple of days in this condition with both right side tires in this same condition.

I few weeks ago I was visiting an old boss in Eustis Florida (middle of the state & north of Orlando). As I traveled from my motel to his house I passed this road while on 44. Now would you say you the name of this road I was looking at is A) Cardinal or B) Mockingbird? or C) depends on what side of the street you live on? Just crazy if you ask me.

Sheep know where to stay_now.jpgI stopped to take some photos of sheep. This massive work dog came out from the middle of the pack to "chat" with me. And it wasn't a come pet me chat either. lol. This dude was massive, probably topping 150 pounds too. But something I thought interesting was the sheep had an "invisible" line they would not cross to get closer to me. They also knew who to respect.
