      Neither rain nor snow now hail nor wind nor.... oh what the hell, I'm stuck

      Quote, originally posted by google images »
      US Postal Service mail carrier Jack Chen sits in his stuck vehicle as he waits for some help from Sunland/Tujunga Neighborhood Councilmember David Cain and a LA County Fire Department truck to get him out of the mud on Big Tujunga Canyon Road in Tujunga, Ca. Thursday, January 21, 2010. Chen became stuck when he attempted to cross a section of the road that was covered with mud. The road has several sections that have been covered with mud and debris from the heavy rains and is closed to the public.


      So if it was closed, what the hell was he doing driving on it???

      You know that 99% of Iceland is untouched by this volcano right? The volcano is on the south end of Iceland, and the ash cloud is blowing south into mainland Europe. They are the ones who are boned. Even at that, you live in the U.S.A. look around buddy. Tornado Alley, the Hurricane seasons down south, The entire west coast awaiting massive earthquakes and/or volcanic eruptions.

      My guess, is somewhere out there, somebody was having trouble making the payments on their 330i... And then it just to happened, completely coincidentally of course, to be 'stolen', and never seen again.

      eh... relax.

      One, it's obviously warm out and pants would just get super muddy.

      I figure he has a set of summer shorts on that get covered up by the shirt.

      Either that or he figures he's going to save his clothes, the women won't get bothered cause he knows them and he gets to run around in his underwear.

      hmmmm

      maybe your first sense was right
