Dedicated to The Drivers Around The World
You can have an RC car even if you aren’t a kid anymore. Some crazyass modern things are beeing produced right now and this Monster Green Reaper RatRod RC is something of a perfect RC toy for everyone. It can go fast, it can go everywhere and it runs on batteries and not nitrous. This guy really made a wonderful video depicting its capabilities and maybe the most impressive feature is that this thing isn’t scared of water at all. Take a look at it. You’ll want it and you’ll like it.
A father walks by his son’s room. He notices, with his parental instincts, that something must be wrong. The room is spotless and even the bed is made. Several alarms go off at once, especially when he sees a letter on the pillow with the word “Dad” written on the envelope. Expecting the worst, he opens the letter and begins reading it with trembling hands.
“Dear Dad,It is with great regret and sorrow that I am writing you. I had to elope with my new girlfriend because I wanted to avoid a scene with mom and you. I’ve been finding real passion with Stacy, and she is so nice, but I knew you would not approve because of her piercings, tattoos, tight motorcycle clothes, and the fact she’s much older than I am.
Stacy said that we will be very happy. She owns a trailer in the woods, and has a stack of firewood for the whole winter. We share a dream of having many more children.
Stacy has opened my eyes to the fact that marijuana doesn’t really hurt anyone. We’ll be growing it for ourselves and trading it with other people in the commune — for all the cocaine and ecstasy we want.
In the meantime, we’ll pray that science will find a cure for AIDS so that Stacy can get better. She sure deserves it.
Don’t worry, Dad. I’m 15, and I know how to take care of myself. Someday, I’m sure we’ll be back to visit, so you can get to know your many grandchildren.
Dad, none of the above is true. I’m over at Jason’s house. I just wanted to remind you that there are worse things in life than the school report that’s on the kitchen table. Call when it’s safe for me to come home!”
This son is clearly a veteran in breaking bad news to his parents.
Share this teenager’s wicked idea. His parents are surely grateful for his bad grades for the first time ever.
Jet Powered Go-Kart on the Road
We have found that folks generally like to throw motorcycle engines in go-karts and make them fly! This kart looks like it’s ready to fly as well… literally!
Check out this jet powered creation driving down the street in the video below. It looks as if they’re holding back a bit, but it’s still interesting to see just how this thing works.
If we saw the kart going down the road in real life we would probably freak out. Maybe soon they’ll turn it up and we can see what this baby will really do! We’re most definitely anticipating more videos!
Montana is seeing a shortage of commercial truck drivers. It’s all because of an expensive certification process.
It’s a problem causing a bumpy road for trucking companies in the Treasure State, a lack of qualified drivers to fill their jobs.
“There’s all sorts of driving jobs out there, but if there’s no jobs to drive trucks the goods and services don’t get delivered,” said Mark Dodge, the instructor of Missoula College’s certification program.
With no financial aid or scholarships available for students in trucking certification programs, they’re forced to pay thousands of dollars up front to get a commercial license. Many students just can’t afford it.
“The good news is if you get hired on with a trucking company, many have reimbursement programs, but it’s coming up with that money up front that’s creating problems for drivers,” Dodge said.
At Missoula College students must pay $1,500 to earn their class a license. That allows you to drive vehicles that carry heavy equipment, like construction of garbage trucks around town.
It costs another $1,500 to get qualified for over-road trucking and that’s where the jobs are.
“My savings and credit card,” student Josh Herring explains how he’s afforded the first part of his certification.
Herring is the only student in the program right now.
“No one would hire me as full-time employee, because I don’t have full training.”
Herring is taking a few jobs this summer to make the $1,500 he needs to get a full certification.
“Right now it depends on how well I do working this summer.”
Meantime, Dodge says soon the trucking industry won’t be the only one noticing the shortage.
“Goods and services come with trucks, so if you don’t have truck drivers, the price of every goes up whether in grocery store, at a pharmacy or wherever,” Dodge said.
There is some good news for drivers who can pay the tuition. Demand for commercial drivers is expected to jump by 2022, adding more than 192,000 jobs.
