So if you live in the north east you may have seen the news - or maybe not, but it seems there were some interesting events on the interstate in both New York and Vermont this weekend. Never mind the sink hole that opened up and is expected to be fixed by Tuesday, it didn't swallow anything noteworthy.
O wait. That in itself is noteworthy. Someone should send the state cop who spotted it a note of thanks, just for paying attention. I mean, really. Can you imagine driving into a giant hole at 65 mph? That would ruin your day.
Speaking of ruined days, there were a pair of what I refer to as statistically significant head on collisions on the New York thruway. Did you hear about those? Yeah. Head on. Well how does that happen on the interstate you wonder?
Good question. The answer is simple. Someone gets on going the wrong way.
So now if I were an analyst, getting paid say, $100,000 per annum - which I am not - then I would suggest that the occurance of not one, but two of these incidents just hours apart is noteworthy. But we all know, nobody is gonna pay me $100,000 a year for such brilliant insight, because hey, it really isn't that brilliant after all.
No, it isn't. I'm sure everyone who saw the news went HuH?
And some young lady named Elizabeth Flynn was rear ended in Vermont while pulled over in the break down lane. She got banged up pretty good, but it seems she'll live.
So now, you know, I just can't help myself.
Is all of this nonsense really necessary?
