If you're a Forrest Gump fan you may enjoy this video.  The guy spent a lot of time researching the locations used for the various scenes in the movie and then he traveled to those locations and 'documented' the scenes shot there. 

He is either a very dedicated fan or he needs something else to do with his life :o :o :o

People (Idiots) drive way too fast for conditions and don't look ahead as to what is happening a half mile or a mile down the road.  Dodgem...

It's difficult to look down the road when you are looking at your phone

...  or combing your hair, reading a book or playing with yourself... or all at the same time...  Isn't that called 'multitasking'?  Driving safely and responsibly is optional of course.

I watched the video.  Found it amazing the speed at which those idiots came into the crash area, like they were 'multitasking' instead of paying any attention.

\But then it's a 'accident' right.  accidently on purpose.

Situational awareness...

what is going on all around you!

We studied it in the Army.  In a combat scenario you have to have a pretty good idea of what is going on around you or either you're going to get killed or you're going to kill someone on your side (happens much more than the military admits to).

Just this morning when we went in the restaurant for breakfast my wife started to sit down.  I asked her to trade seats with me and she agreed but made a little quip "you just can't stand to have your back to the door can you"?  She already knew the answer though ;) ;) ;)

Here's a video from several years ago about the Crisp Point Lighthouse up on Lake Erie.  There has been a lot of restoration done since then and you can now drive to it although the roads aren't great by any means and you probably can't get there this time of year.

This is about 8 miles east of where my paternal grandparents had a home on the shore of Lake Superior.  The same year I was born it washed into the lake and the video shows how several hundred feet of the beach have washed away over 100 years.

Big crash over on US 31 a few days ago...

over 11.5m views on the video.  Language warning on the video!

I'm not sure if this is of the same stretch on US 31 but it's still interesting.

I didn't know where to put this but Internet is pretty close i guess.
The last few times i've plugged my Apple phone in from being off I see old txt's appear briefly on the screen that i deleted days and weeks ago.
So, does that mean Verizon does not get rid of txt msgs we think we deleted?

Anybody else notice this.   i am going to pay more attention and pretty soon contact Verizon..
