Good enough
This was my morning commute. It seemed relevant.

A Ranger, a lawnmower, and the lawnmower's homemade safety device.

I'd be downright ashamed to have a John Deere towing my 2.9 truck down the road, but I guess you need all the help you can get.. :black_eye:

i could drive my truck under it
Drove my FZ09 under one once at about 90mph+


I decided to sell the Yamaha after about a year. It had entirely too much power for me. I'd be dead by now had I kept it. I do miss her though. The only new vehicle I've ever bought. Paid straight cash for it.. I've never ridden any other bike that made me feel so alive, yet so fragile. You seemed seconds from death at any given time on the damn thing. No clutch wheelies on demand in 3rd gear. I liked the 3 modes it had available via pushbutton.

I shouldn't have sold it. I miss that triple sound at about 10,000rpm.

Those lawn mowers look like they will be delicious in a year or so.

Well then what good are they?

Seriously, we had one when we were kids and all it did was convert feed into poop and scream if you got within 10' of it from day one.

Break it right the first time. Fix it better the next time.

You people just suck at raising pigs. I've already got the one I picked up a few weeks ago house trained and sleeping in the house. He plays with my german shepherd.

In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are different.
I thought all pigs have potbellies.

Pig is pig is pig is pig

Look at my pet Oreos. See how well they play together. Oops... I ate them.

The normal bacon pigs we raised were a lot more domesticated than the potbelly pig we had.

Pot belly pigs belong in a pot. A cooking pot. Then, before you eat them, smoke some pot.
