    [quote user="bandwgn86"][quote user="bansaw"][quote user="bandwgn86"][quote user="bansaw"]just thought I'd pop in and say how glad I'm able to stop in

    was sitting at a red light waiting for the left turn arrow to go away...there were no cars coming towards me so when green I snailed off the line, no hurry, no worry....

    then I hear this horrible tire skidding ... looked to my left and see a tractor trailer fully locked up and all tires smoking, smoke was pouring out, I tried to gun the van but it wouldn't have mattered ... thankfully he got it whoa'd up before my side of the intersection.

    I thought of was my kids before I cleared the intersection and then for the next 1/2 hour I got the giggles ... whew

    [/quote]maybe you should stop driving Ban lol[/quote]I'm thinking 2 seconds

    dude notices it's red 2 seconds later he's plowing through the side of me

    [/quote]scary stuff theres no coming back from that kind of accident..[/quote]I would have had as good a shot at survival with the police station kitty corner, fast response lol

    and if it did come down I'd have left on Wayne Gretzky Pkwy just past McConkey Ct lol, so I'd have had that going for me

                Six hundred feet below the Antarctic ice, where no light can be
                found, NASA scientists made a startling discovery – a swimming
                shrimp-like creature that could challenge the idea of where and how
                forms of life can survive.</p>


                <span id="more-5626"></span>While the creature is small itself -– only about three inches long -– its impact could be tremendous.</p>


                A NASA team had lowered a small video camera to get the first-ever
                photograph of the underside of an ice shelf – and that’s when they saw
                the swimming creature, according to a NASA document.</p>


                The discovery could shake the very foundation of what kind of creatures can survive in certain atmospheres.</p>


                "We were operating on the presumption that nothing's there," NASA
                ice scientist Robert Bindschadler told the Associated Press. "It was a
                shrimp you'd enjoy having on your plate."</p>


                "We were just gaga over it," he told the AP.</p>


                The creature, a Lyssianasid amphipod, could lead the way for larger
                expeditions into harsher environments that scientists previously
                believed could not support life – both on the Earth and even frozen
                moons in outer space.</p>

                  We as humans really need to get over ourselves and think that just because what we need to support life is what every other creature needs. So not true....

                  There's no reason why a creature can't breath in carbon dioxide and breath out oxygen, just like trees. We are continually finding creatures in odd places....it's not odd to them!!

                  If you go absolutely to the bottom of the ocean, I bet you will find stunning creatures, probably bigger than any submarine we could build....and those creatures probably don't have a clue about land above them....

                                I'm sorry I absolutely abhor pop music...Mike Jackson (RIP) was my exception to the norm.

                                That said, I've waited for this horrid show (American Idiots, I mean Idol), to go off the air with enthusiasm and yet, like Bron-Bron with a timely block, it's still here!

                                What would make my day? Simon cutting down the wrong one, and seeing that person hop the desk and stone-cold lay his pompous *** out.
