I like how the other guy pauses, then just carries on.

Like to see how they explained it when reporting it to their insurance. (If they had any)

There is a great car museum here in Lima with some vehicles one does not often see. Let's see who can identify this car. The museum has one just like it but in silver. The winner may receive an all expense paid vacation of indeterminate time in beautiful Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. Transportation, lodging, meals and entertainment provided by Homeland Security.

No cable, no water bed but a nice cot and all the sun you can handle. With an occasional special water treatment to help provide relief from the heat.

Nice, I was thinking of visiting a health club in the new year to lose some weight...

At Camp Guantanamo we fully support hunger strikes while ensuring that you receive sufficient calories to survive, via a feeding tube. More fun than it sounds.

Fun or not fun? (i.e. were you somewhere where you could enjoy it or not?)

Not driven in the snow for years (don't get a whole lotta snow in Houston!). Last time was in Denmark a few years back where the hotel I was staying in had a courtyard where you parked which was down a slope from the road, flanked by the brick walls of the hotel on 3 sides. I was in a rental Volvo trying to get out the courtyard and it was icy - came back down more than a few times trying to get out and came very close to wiping the car out into the brick...!

It was fun, but not exactly in a suitable place

I was on a main road but it was with very light traffic on the 1st, I'd hit one of those patches where even driving with care your back end will come out on you. I like that kind of precision driving though, weird as that might make me.

My RAM used to do that in the dry. On a straight road.

Horrid thing.
