Shay, you're absolutely correct about how your decisions matter. Especially in traffic.

On December 28th, 2004 I was going south on I-75 in Ohio coming in to Dayton. I turned my head for a second to set down a soda and when I looked back, all of the traffic was at a dead stop. I had no time to react and not enough room to stop. Everything went in to slow motion. I had the option of swerving in either direction to avoid rear ending the refrigerated trailer in my lane but doing so would have likely killed a number of people. My only option was to ease to the left enough to try to keep the damage on the passenger side of my truck. I had forty four thousand pounds of paper in the trailer so I had an immense amount of kinetic energy at the time of impact. The cab was knocked off the frame, the trailer jack knifed and my dog almost went out the window. Since I had no control over the vehicle anymore, I let go of the wheel and held on to my dog, saving her life.

The weight of the cab ended up on my right leg below the knee. I didn't break any bones but the soft tissue damage was quite severe. I blew out my back, split my head open and had a hairline fracture in my hand.

To this day, I still have to use a wheelchair to travel any farther than within my own home. I've kept a positive attitude since the moment after I stopped moving during the accident. I was even joking with the emergency workers as they cut me out of the truck, which took about an hour. I have no reason to be upset with anyone over the whole ordeal. I just thank God every day that he had some other purpose for me being on this Earth and saw fit to keep me here a little longer. I get to wake up every day and see the sunrise and talk to my family and friends.

Your family has been a big part of my life since the accident and the resultant hospital visits and surgeries. Thank you and yours for being who you are.

The movie you said to guess at looked like Stargate.

Entertaining, yes. But the angle of the shot makes it appear that Charles' forehead is directly against the Zooey balloon knot... Let us hope Zooey doesn't have gas...

I figured they made him a Democrat because he's a lying, manipulative, murderous piece of human trash. All of that is synonymous with liberal Democrat in the real world of thinking people.

Super bowl? Is that the next size up popcorn container from what you were using?

Now you can get the DJI Phantom 2 Vision with the Zenmuse Gimbal for GoPro cams so you can get perfect steady cam shots or change the angle of the cam while it's flying. You can also fly it via first person view so you can see what the bird sees with your tablet or iPhoney...
