If, as the article suggests he was making an ad for a new energy drink............I don't think people will be queuing up to buy it............then again, it is CA....
Still enjoying the trip of a lifetime and making the best of what I have.....

    I tried to out run a train today.

    One was coming off base as I went through the main gate. I got fancy instead of just waiting and went two streets over to get across the tracks ahead of the train,
    Got caught and had to wait anyway.

    Well, they say that you can't fix stupid...but it appears that, at least in this case, stupid fixed itself.
    "Bipartisan" usually means that a bigger than normal deception is happening.

    Apparently........that energy drink makes you almost as fast as a train.............and dumb as a box of hair.
    Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
    I will fear no evil: For I carry a .308 and not a .270

    That was a stiff dose of chlorine for the gene pool.
    I am afraid we forget sometime that the basic and simple things brings us the most pleasure.

    Stupid often is its own cure! Saw the aftermath of a train vs. full sized P/U truck a few months back. Truck looked like it had been put in a car crusher at the junk yard. 300 yards down the track from impact and it wasn't pretty inside the cab......I thought the vehicle was a small import until a sheriff told that it was a Ford 150 extended....

    Nah, he started dumb...the drink was merely along for the short, (briefly) painful ride.

    Ha! Good one! And very true. At least he wasn't driving with a carfull of friends and killed them, too.

    Trains aren't afraid of pretty boys. Now if Moochelle Obummer had tried that stunt, the train would have taken a dirt road!

    This is fitting...

    Granted, it's 3 minutes of your life you won't get back...but the song will get stuck in your head.
