You’ll find a video clip of the incident in this tweet. I imagine that must have given a number of drivers a hair-raising experience . . .… Continue reading I’ve heard of “Nap-of-the-earth” flying, but “Nap-of-the-semi”???
This tweet speaks for itself. Clickit to biggit. And when it does, what will you eat? Verily, the mind doth boggle . . . Peter
That’s the question put by an anonymous reader to Damon Young’s advice column in the Washington Post. Hi Damon: My best friend is an antivaxxer (not only covid, all the vaccines). His wife is, too.

Clickit to biggit. There’s no weather information available about conditions at the time. I can only presume that gusting winds, probably including cross-winds, had… Continue reading That’s about as close as you can get to a plane crash without having one…
The Telugu action movie RRR is the latest thing out of India, and it’s making waves in this country too after Netflix bought the US broadcast rights. I think this fight scene is perhaps the weirdest and most over-the-top I’ve ever seen! It’s not the only over-the-top scene, either.
