    I was sitting at a long stoplight yesterday, minding my own business
    patiently waiting for it to turn green even though there was no on-coming traffic.

    A carload of bearded, young, loud Muslims, shouting Anti-American slogans,
    with a half-burned American Flag duct-taped on the trunk of their car and a
    "Remember 9-11" slogan spray painted on the side, was stopped next to me.
    Suddenly they yelled, "Allahu Akbar! Praise Allah!" and took off before the light changed.
    Out of nowhere an 18-wheeler came speeding through the intersection and ran
    directly over their car, crushing it completely and killing everyone in it.



    For several minutes I sat in my car thinking to myself, "Man....that could have been me!"

    So today, bright and early, I went out and got a job as a truck driver.

    It ain't so bad. The old Mack E9 I stuffed in there and tuned drinks about a gallon every 6-7 miles bobtail. And considering I've been in bio production for the last 11 or 12 years to feed the equipment, I have enough stockpiled.
