Great Laws - Ice Missles

Connecticut has a new law going into effect at the end of the month, that is already in place in many states, and which needs to spread to all locales.

The law is against "Ice Missiles". 

Ice Missiles are what happens when you don't clean the snow properly off the top of your car, and then go for a drive, shooting snow and ice off the top of your car, onto other cars around you, or passerby's.

True story: I know people who have died from ice missiles. As another car stopped, the ice shot off the roof, and through their windshield, killing them.

So take the extra few minutes and clean all the snow off your car, even if your state doesn't have the law.

Splendid F***in' Week

Had plans with a friend, those got cancelled.

Then tonight, I texted someone I had thought was a good friend, and got back a "Who's this?".

For starters, who deletes contacts these days, when you can have an unlimited number of them?

Second, who deletes a number, and someone off Facebook and Skype, and doesn't say a word to them, or give them a reason as to why they are doing so.



Truthfully, reading back those last two words, it's better for me to not be associated with people like that.

I can't even begin to delve into the mindset of why someone would eliminate someone entirely from their life, without giving a reason.

Falling outs over time. Understandable.

Fights. Understandable.

We were talking a few days ago just fine, and suddenly, (as HOVA likes to say) poof -- vamoose, son of a bitch.

I know it's been 5-6 weeks since my last post. But if I never post again, at least people may begin to get an understanding of where things sped-up down the slope.

Updated (literally two minutes after posting):

Got a text from a third person, telling me basically: "It has been nice knowing you. Have a nice life."

Come on, bring it on world!

I'm gonna at least go out in style...
