Runaway FedEx van. When you absolutely positively need a truck rammed up your house.

We were watching and analyzing this at work the other day.  First thinking it was awesomely lucky for the driver that he avoided injury AND damage to his truck.  Then realized that he didn't avoid damage to his truck, but rather demolished the driver side door.  Then realized that its extremely lucky that the door was open and hit that tree because I think that caused a slight redirect of the path and allowed the truck to narrowly miss the house. (It was a slow day ;))

Either way ... what I'd really like to know is what the dogs were thinking the whole time. ;)

He was lucky the door didn't come completely off.

I shouldn't judge. I didn't set the brakes on a golf cart and it started down a hill towards a ravine. I was able to catch up, jump in head first at the last second and put on the brakes, very close to the edge of a steep fall. Could have killed myself.

That reminded me of this one time in Myrtle Beach. I had my own cart and was looking for my ball near the water. Suddenly I look up and I am like 5 yards from the water. So, instead of hitting the brake, I try to stick my foot outside the cart to stop it. Then I remember the cart has a brake and I slam on that, and come up about 5 feet short of going in. I was 15 at the time, and not accustomed to driving a golf cart that much.

I wonder if we sign some sort of liability when we check out the cart? Another note to self "Learn to forge a signature on cart sheet." :whistle:

Seriously, I agree that a $5200 golf cart is definitely not worth your life.

Funny. :-$

That "FedEx video" did look like it came out of a "B"-rated comedy. The dogs were a plus.

    • What is happening is the layers of the material the shaft is made of are breaking down. Some graphite shafts are made in a veneer like manner think of it as thin sheets of graphite are overlaid to create the shaft. Bottom line is the shaft need to be replaced. You can find replacement shafts on ebay that are inexpensive.
    • Little slow in posting this, still smiling over this shot. Last Saturday I played at Oldfield CC in Bluffton, SC.  It was a rainy day. #2 I hit my Drive straight down the right hand side of the fairway into the bunker about 260 to 270 in the rain.  Looking at my ball I was sitting about 155is out in the trap, the trap was wet so the sand was not fluffy that relieved me as I felt the shot would easier then. I went up a club as I usually do from a fairway bunker.  Decent lip to clear but felt I could get my 7i up in time to do it.  I went for a standard all ball contact before ground, hovered my club and nailed it perfectly.  It was a beautiful looking ball and landed pin high just right at about 10' from the pin and just stuck there. Missed the putt for birdie but got my par. Still feels good thinking about how that shot felt and flew.
    • Shot a 79 yesterday, that I wasn't necessarily proud of. Started out great. It seemed so easy, a 38 on the front 9, then for some reason, lost my swing on the back and carded a 41 with 2 double bogeys. and a bogey. Today, I made up for it with a pair of 37's, for a nice 74. 2 bogeys, 6 pars, and 1 birdie per 9. Nice consistent golf.
    • Speaking of deniers... it's been several months since I've heard anyone say covid-19 is not as bad as the flu.  276,000 covid deaths later (vs. 22,000 flu deaths) and those deniers have gone silent. And speaking of vaccinations... I like the idea of the $1500 incentive to get the shot(s).  Though I think $1000 would get the same results.  I bet that incentive would move 70-80% of the anti-vaxers off the schneid.  They're fickle and easily bought. Then we'd quickly get our herd immunity.  And I can remove this damn mask.
