Also, on the way to work this AM, I pull onto 34 here in Yorkville and immediately, my radar starts going off like crazy. I get up to 45 (speed limit) and turn on my cruise control. I'm in the right lane and maybe a mile down the road I see the cop in the median. Truck in the left lane a few car lengths behind me must also have radar and is going 45. There's a small gap between us that remains constant. I get the instant on radar notification, meaning the cop targeted me once directly and shot his radar to get a reading (I assume)

As we get closer to the cop, a red Accord Sport 2.0T is coming up behind me at 55+ MPH I have to imagine. He clearly does not see the cop or have radar. He cuts between me and the truck that's 4-5 car lengths behind me. This all happens as we're 200 yards from the cop and he started to accelerate past me when he sees the cop and slams on the brakes.

Needless to say, cop pulls out, truck gets behind me and he flys past us to catch up to the red Accord and lights him up. Next light me and trucker are next to each other and he's having a good laugh about it.

This is why I have a radar detector and always will.
I got pinched on 34 in dorkville doing 57in a 45 mph zone. Cop was cool and let me off about a month ago after that I’m cruising at 47 mph everyday

Fuck!! Wife just got hit on 290. Some fucking kid rear ended her. She pulled over and the kid sped away until his front clip came off and hood flew open a mile down the road. My wife called the cops and while the cop was talking to her to someone rear ended the kids car while he was on the side of the road just before another cop got to him.

Aaand she just called me again. The cop said the kid admitted to fleeing the scene because he was on his phone making a Snapchat vid when he got in the accident and have confiscated his phone. Kid had a Lowered Honda Civic and went under my wife’s car. She is going to immediate care just to be safe but is okay.

One more change. Just before the cop told my wife she was free to go he said there was no 3rd car involved. Only her and him. Wife said there were pieces of his car all across the highway. My guess He lost control when he was trying to run from the scene and spun into the center divider and skid across the highway. Good news is her initial check is all okay other than Some bruising.

Hopefully she’s okay. Total victim in all this. Makes for a really long night and a lousy start to the weekend.

What's important is that she's okay. At least the other person didn't get away.

The fucking brown outs that keep killing my internet for 2-3 minutes.

I have a UPS on the Network stuff, so my shits fine, but whatever is connected downstream from my modem on Comcast's side dies for a few minutes while it reboots.

Its annoying shit as its happened about 6 times today.

I was at Comcast returning a box and they gave me an upgraded internet speed for $20 LESS than what I was paying plus $7.50 off for the box (that was sitting in my son's closet). My internet speed has reached the almost 300 MB level and everything is working great again. Two new boxes from a tech call plus the speed bump makes for good times.

We got 'ole blue out, were cruising around, thinking about heading up there for the show, and my son looks at the radar and say "we better get home..." and showed me the radar on his phone...

Got home with 10 minutes to spare before the sky opened up.

I think those storms caught a lot of people out. I was down near Manhattan and Symerton coming back north, trying to keep ahead of the rain doing a whopping 12-16mph (bicycle) and saw multiple groups of classic and muscle cars heading for cover.

Youngest daughter barely slept. She finally went to sleep around 4am after off and on sleep throughout the night. She went to sleep at 8pm, woke up at 1030ish then would be up for 30-45 minutes, then fall back asleep for an hour then get up.... 4am she finally actually slept but I had to wake her up at 6 to get her ready to leave. I haven't slept. Maybe an hour or two throughout the night.

FaceBook is such a piece of shit. I know we all have bitched about it. I thought FB was a place that you can express your views on things?
They gave another banned for 24hr for expressing my view.
I comments on a post that showed the two pieces of shit that killed that female cop and seriously injuring her partner.
I said these two should just be hung. Save the time and money.
That went against FB standards for violence and they banned me again for 24hr.
Yet you can post a video of someone getting shot in the face on the south side of Chicago and that's OK. You can openly say you want to hang T2024, but you say Biden is retarded and they kick you off for a month. What a fucking joke.

I thought everyone knew Facebook was a piece of shit? I only reopened my account this year to get in on the ILLDUB group. I never go to my timeline, don't have the app and don't go outside of the groups/events. Gave it up in Dec 2015 and been fine without all these years.

Today is the day of many fucks. The instruments from above, play during the rainstorm, neighborhood who doesn’t deal with weeds apparently didn’t have sufficient ways to hold his kids trampoline down, it went flying away today, nearly got in my yard but it stopped right at the end of his property and at the fence belong to the neighbor behind us.

then just an hour ago, while getting ready for lunch I had to clean a pan and while doing that, I knocked over my cold brew maker. Glass shattered, luckily it was in the sink. I had to replace it earlier this year because I set it down too aggressively on the counter one day. Double fuck.

I believe that they're on the 5th bumper cover and it still isn't the right one...

I suggested a few used ones (undamaged) from Car-part.com today. Not sure where we'll head with this.

It'll be Halloween before I get the car back at this rate...
