    I'll start,

    Down at Crystal beach a guy in a STOCK Furd F-150 2wd decided he wanted to launch his two jet ski's. SO what does he do? Backs the truck right out into the water /forums/images/icons/shocked.gif after going as far as he could without getting water in the cab he stoped and they fired the things up but there wasn't enough water there to get them off. So they start jumping on the tongue of the trailer /forums/images/icons/smirk.gif well they finally were able to push the jet ski's off but by then the truck was SUNK with waves crashing over the tailgate. No one could pull him because there was no where on the front of the truck to attach a strap. After about 20 min or so there was enough people there to push it out and get it back to shore.
    Ok I'm done now everybody else's stories /forums/images/icons/grin.gif .

    The CHP (California Highway Patrol) blocking off tons of streets all over town near and in the area where fireworks were going to be off (like city displays) trying to make sure they helped traffic but instead creating a nightmare. I find it odd that thousands of us crowd onto freeways and roads after work and make it home fine without them helping us, yet they feel the need to do this and always create headaches and messes beyond words. WTF do they block off streets? I needed to go left to go home and couldn't because they closed the street off! How was this helping? So yeah I saw stupid and the scary thing is they are stupid I am paying taxes for! /forums/images/icons/shocked.gif /forums/images/icons/crazy.gif /forums/images/icons/tongue.gif
