Default Sandy victims cheered by NYC's Thanksgiving parade

Well, obviously that was not the Macy's Parade. That was a 100 vehicle pileup on Thanksgiving day in Texas caused by 200 Fed Ex trucks.

And in other news, PETA urges President Obama not to pardon Turkeys.

I did read that fog caused this
what I fail to comprehend is why people insist on driving through heavy fog!

To get to the parade?

Or to get to Black Friday.

Damn, a 100 car pileup and I'm NOT in it or behind it? Must be a good day! You have to watch FedEx though, those guys drive so fast. "When it absolutely, positively has to be in a ditch overnight" is what I used to say on the cb when I was on the road.

Gotta watch those FedEx guys. I'm near a major FedEx hub. So we have those double-tandem trailers. They're more like driving a train instead of a trailer.

Of course, Mobil may be worse! I got on the highway once behind a fleet of no less than 5 tankers. Darn, I thought, because I knew there was a large hill a couple miles ahead, and such a fleet would surely slow to a crawl chugging up that hill. So I got in the left lane and took it up to 75 to get around them. But I wasn't catching them. Well, let's try 80 ... still no good. What about 85? Well, darn ...I had to do 90 mph to make any headway in passing these tankers! You gotta be shittin' me! A fleet of 5 tankers, each filled with 80,000 pounds of gas, flying down the highway at a whopping 85 mph! Shiiiiiitttt ... better hope nothing gets in front of them! That'll be the biggest fireball since the WTC!!!

There was a FedEx driver I once met on a job who was smoking dusted pot in the parking lot after making the daily delivery. He brought it with him.
He then hopped back into his truck and drove off to complete his route.

I crashed in my parked car for over a half an hour.
I only took a couple of hits as a gesture of goodwill to the fellow employees in the mail room, at the time hoping to land a permanent job there.
I didn't know it was dusted, but that's how I found out...
