It is the number of "Joes" making mistakes and the number of

to Deal's Gap.
After the first 20 pages or so you are correct.

However, my point was that some claim never to have made that kind of mistake, and on that I call BS! We all f'up now and then, no matter how good we are. Mostly we survive it without a scratch, always we need to learn from the consequences, and somtimes we do not get the chance too, but that is the final time.

People forget that this road was put in so that people and stuff could get from one end of it to the other. It wasn't built as a racetrack or carnival ride.

Or a parkway...This road in particular is a "public" right-of-way.
If it's so bad that trucks can't navigate the curves then local LE needs to install signage to keep them OUT/AWAY, not sit there laying in wait for the next "ticket" to write.
The signs someone else posted pics of are woefully inadequate.

I don't disagree with that, but tractor-trailers obviously are but one problem of many.

For what do we live, but to make sport for our neighbours, and laugh at them in our turn?''

Part II...now I'm bein responsible see...we can still learn a lesson for ourselves and laugh at some other dumb bastard.

All that "oh he who is without sin", that's some sanctimonious ghey shit--if you biff it and get hurt...it's not funny today. But it will be.

Tragedy + Time = Comedy. It's a universal law...look it up. Some of us just have a shorter time span to reach that comedy than others.


...and mosta what we're looking at here ain't death, just biffs...and yeah, we can still learn something while sayin' "you dumb bastard"...

Right!?!??!?! Just sayin':
