It's more like... I find it personally insulting as a man that she obviously thinks my gender is too stupid to understand her topics, therefore she resorts to using sex as a means to capture the attention of the stupid male gender."]




Well, one could just move to Oregon and get a new id... solve that problem.... :evilgrin:  :rocketright: :rocketleft: :WTF:

Oh. Swell. Well good, I'm a fucking zebra now, put it on my birth certificate. Because god knows, when assholes decide to hate you for your gender identity, they always ask to see your state issued ID first, right? Oregons got a fucking college campus held hostage by a disorganized terrorist regime of screaming spoiled 19 year old hipster douchebags, but I'm glad their state legislatures are spending the weeks on end debating this on the floor to bring this MUCH NEEDED change about, not to mention all the tax money spent making it happen. MONEY WELL SPENT.

I recall watching a vid a decade or so ago, of a UCSD neuroscientist describing the sorts of crossed wiring between brain structures that likely causes synesthesia.

Found it (literally 10 years ago.)

(P.S. if you haven't seen these yet, imagine for a moment how you might design a test to weed out those whose brains were truly wired for synesthesia, vs. those who merely imagined such an identity.)

It's bad enough that if you go to a Waffle House to eat, you gotta think about all the thousands of disgusting motherfuckers who have had that fork in their mouths. Yeah, they wash the forks, and I'm sure they wash the fucking doll too, but... my god, that's fucking disgusting.

If they can't raise the bridge, how about lowering the road?

Edit: "Can’t the road be lowered? That would be prohibitively expensive because a sewer main runs just a few feet below the road bed. That sewer main also dates back about a hundred years and, again, at the time there were no real standards for minimum clearance for railroad underpasses."

I've been a fan but not a regular follower of that channel for years. I think they just "celebrated" their 118th victim. The city put up an advanced detection and warning system and they still manage to get can opener collisions. Amazing. There are high-strength beams across the span to protect the trestle on both sides.

I rented a 22 foot bobtail in 1982 when we moved and I don't remember getting any training about clearances or a statement about my clearance height. They just handed me the keys and let me drive away. I wonder what these drivers get.

We've got a kinda similar bridge in NE Atlanta on Ponce DeLeon Ave heading into Atlanta from Decatur. It's an old rock masonry railroad bridge with an arched opening, so the clearance in the curb lanes is only 11'8". Truck drivers tend to avoid that road like it's got the plague because the lanes are so dangerously narrow. But every once in a while they get some newbie over there in a box truck who rips the corner of his shit off on the bridge arch and then traffic gets fucked up on that road all the way from Atlanta to Decatur in both directions for the rest of the day.
