    Woah!
    If there's any consolation about your frozen tundra is that the ash tree is one hell of a tree.
    So much so that Ascandian pantheon is named after it. The Aces guard the ash tree at Asgard from the winds of evil by their life force represented by atmospheric lightning.
    Maybe your tundra is gonna have babies.
    Because when the Aces arrive so do the Divas. And they come together.
    To raise some horse power.
    Because everyone starts off on 4 wheels.

    thanks guys we dug it out and while its suffered damages it could be worse
    lost my tool box, front windshield, rear window and bad damage to the passenger rear door but missed everything else on that side that i can see
    drivers side roof and front fender are going to need work and hood should be salvageable
    all in all not too bad for a couple of tons of tree and i was planning on giving the old gray mare a paint job this year anyway
    won't be parking near trees soon if i can avoid it

    surprisingly v8 tundra in 02 w 130k holds its value pretty well
    and i will always own a truck so vs new its really no choice especially since i rarely drive it and mechanically it been nothing but solid
    99-02 were very good years for toyota/lexus
    only recently upgraded my 00 gs300 and i would have driven that to NYC
    still see it almost everyday and the guy i sold it to is destroying it
    breaks my heart

    thinking i'm going to go w a wrap and so far the gloss red black iridescent is looking very cool
    probably a bit flashy for an old tundra but fuck it lol
    if anyone knows someone in the biz i'd like to talk to them after i finish the body work

    just watched a short movie on people who's lives were changed by accidents caused by texting and driving called from one second to the next
    anyone who drives at all sees people doing it all the time, drifting out of their lanes, driving too slow etc.
    why isn't this being treated w the full force of the law?
    i'd be for an effort to end the carnage in the same way we approach drunk driving
    the laws are way too light and there should be a major fine for first offense texting and driving followed by license suspension and revocation
    just seems like this is a major issue that is largely being ignored
    i think they shut down the ad campaign because people found it too disturbing...yeah random unnecessary avoidable death can be that way
    maybe the number one true social issue of our time and i don't think that's an exaggeration

    Because politicians haven't discovered how to spin it for political gain yet. Sorry, I couldn't resist.

    Yeah, I see people whose driving is affected by texting all the time. That's why I will always own a full-sized pickup. Better vantage point of all the crazies around me and if they do drift into me hopefully I'll be able to absorb the contact better.

    Seems like California was serious about it for a while and it was working - I saw fewer violators... and now it's rarely mentioned any more and the texters are back.

    Emotions and Facts.

    Drunk driving is penalized but not nearly as much the true cause of accidents and loss of life and joy.
    Distracted driving by tired overworked slaves.
    But drunk driving fatalities are filled with extra emotions.
    It is hard to find someone to blame in an accident where folks are distracted.
    Because everyone drives distracted by one thing or another.
    MADD was very emotionally filled.
    DARE, same thing.
    Lots of all kinds of emotions running the spectrum.
    Nobody cares about the facts.
    It is all based on emotion.
    Like the stock market.
    Like that shitty corporate beast gamestop that needs to be slain not just wounded.
    As wounds heal and only make you stronger as you are seeing play out.
    Those slave drivers force their slaves to steal from their patrons daily at risk of losing their precious jobs.
    The whip crackers force them to darken their faces every time they are exposed to the sun while stealing in broad daylight.
    Too bad there is no leader here.
    Or else all of you would own PSD's parent media company by this date.
    I sure as hell don't light you guys fire.
    Maybe someone better will.
    Someone better has to come.
    Before all get so emotional too that you start appealing to power to come and make new laws to restrict and imprison my family.
    I really like you guys.
    Specially Michael the arch devil.
    But dont fuck with my family.
    Because everytime the man makes these types of laws they arent for what you think they are.
    They are to put me in and my friends behind bars.
    Not you and your friends.
    Sure yall may get caught up in the net once in a while.
    But you can wiggle out easy without even having to struggle.
    The matrix was not built for you to suffer.
    It was built to cage exotic wild game.
    That is autochthonous.
    And only exotic to the tourist with a permanent expired visa who still doesn't know whose land this is.

    Hard facts are kings like cash but emo melodies always win.
    Until the end.

    well if that exotic wild dude is looking at his phone will guiding a 3000lb missile then fuck him
    i actually think it should be a citizens arrest type thing
    not like reporting people having a party during covid type madness but make it where those of us not driving distracted can bring solid evidence against those that are
    say a hi tech photo gun type thing that can produce an image of said asshole and a license plate without having to take our own eyes off the road
    don't fuck w my family either by endangering our lives to send a lol to a friend
    no in between
