    Gas grills, I hate them. I am a charcoal guy at home on vacation down at the family compound and last night the wife and I had some Tampa friends over to grill them up some venison and grouper. It was a delicious meal and after I ate I went out to turn the grill up to high to burn it off for 5 minutes then I went out to shut off the gas valve off in the cabinet on the built in grill. I opened the cabinet and boom a fireball (evidently there was a gas leak) wrecked my favorite shorts and burned the hair off my legs and my hands, as well as half of my annual buck hunting beard. Woke up this morning and had blisters from the knee down. Charcoal grills never blow up. Lucky for me I am a trained professional and it wasn't the first time I was engulfed in fire still pisses me off.

    Your probably pretty lucky you went to shut it down when you did?
    Worse outcome?

    Neighbors.

    Okay, neighbor. I only have one. Corn field across the road and woods on the other two sides. But I am having some scary situations with neighbors. Downside to living alone 90% of the time. Gets a little freaky.

    The constant overuse of the word epic. It seems that a lot of people just discovered this word in the past year or so and that's the only adjective they know to describe anything.

    It irritates me to no end people that drive in the passing lane that aren't passing anyone. They just want to zone-out and not have to bother passing anyone themselves so they sit there driving slow while everyone else has to now drive around them. WTF

    For me it worse when guys are doing it. Old women and Mommy's I give the pass but guys get the horn. Dudes should no better or not be dixs. It's gotten to the point in FL where there will be 10 of these people all driving slow in a row in the left hand lane and the right hand lane is wide open but they don't see it because their following the car in front of them.

    That's whats great about driving in europe. People pass and then get right back to the right hand lane.

    But I don't want to go off on a rant...

    You nailed this one. The "slow" lane now is usually faster than the "fast" lane. And people think because they are going 1 mph faster than the car in the right lane they can camp the fast lane. That's one reason I like driving a big truck. When all they see is grill in their review mirror, most have a tendency to move over. I lived in Germany for 3 years in the Army. People drive way different there. Pass and get the hell out of the way. Because if you don't and you get rear ended by a Ferrari going 120+, it's your fault. Although I didn't like the portable speeding ticket cameras over there. See a red flash and you'll get a ticket in the mail a week later.

    If you are going to use a receiver as a running back and have him run the ball do not let him wear receiver shoulder pads, asking for an injury. Yet another stupid coaching decision.

    Is photobucket broken? I tried logging in last night and it's so laggy, slow and irritating that I just gave up.

    So got back home today from out of town ran into town to get some needed things at the small town grocery store. I go to check out and the young man cashier comments Packer fan I see ( had a Packer hat on like I usually do) yep I replied. He say I feel sorry for you because the vikings are the number 1 team in the NFL. I was nice to the lad and the snickering soccer mom behind me in line pointed out number 1 in October does not really mean much and he can feel sorry for me if the vikings ever win a Super Bowl. I just don't get it I never make snide comments or engage people based on the hat they wear, and when people feel the need to comment about my franchise they are offended when I reply and explain why they have zero business mocking me like I am the jerk for pointing out the failures of the local franchise.
