I saw a couple women out jogging wearing vests with some sort of LED light arrays that flashed and changed colors in patterns - kinda reminded me of the bill board mega screens in time square. No way a driver couldn't see them from a mile away.

At work I witnessed a fellow get hit by a suv. It hit him so hard that it threw his tied boot around 50 foot. He was wearing all black including his boots. He gained consciousness and thought he just fell. He couldn't believe he was hit. I called the paramedics first and then talked to him. Had him stay down and not move. He wanted me to give him his boot so he could go. He was obviously in shock and probably bleeding internally. This happened at night. It is good to stay visible in traffic.

I found out later that particular fellow was also somewhat intoxicated. He died later on. I was surprised it didn't kill him instantly as hard as he was hit. I think the driver didn't see him till they were upon him and they got scared and ran. All I know was it was a dark suv- maybe full sized, but I might be completely wrong.

Time heals, Raggie. That's why we told you to stand your ground and not give in.

As for the semi driver assclown... Don't try and catch him, just report him to his company. If you explain that you could fire him, he could very well see it as a threat and make an actual move against you.

i tried to google who owns the trucks but had no luck no names on the truck. these chicken trucks are all over. they say this is the poultry capital of the world. ps if you see these trucks you will never eat chicekn again lol. smells like feces and urine imagine a flat bed semi with huges cages full of chickens. i was just going to call the police but wasnt sure it would help.

i hope this link works the reason i wont eat the chickens is the bird on top pee and poop and it goes on the ones below https://www.cbs46.com/news/tractor-...cle_a30392b0-8fb4-11e9-b5ae-c37aec452ad3.html
IIRC, there was a study done about 30 years ago where they set three cages atop of each other.

The top cage chickens were fed grain.
The middle cage chickens ate the above chicken's droppings.
The bottom cage chickens ate the droppings of the middle cage chickens.

The results? The middle cage chickens were the healthiest.

The explanation is that they were eating partially digested food and were better able to extract the nutrients from it.

My dad would never eat chicken. One year when I lived in another state and visited in the hospital he said "they haven't fed me for three days". I went to the nurse station to enquire. The nurse assured me they brought him meals but he refused to eat. I said "you didn't feed him chicken, did you?" She replied "as a matter of fact we did"……
Shortly after my brother arrived with Arbys food saying "dad hasn't eaten in 3 days because they keep bringing him chicken or eggs".

I asked him one day why he wouldn't eat chicken. He said "if you've ever seen what a chicken eats you wouldn't either". I said "but you eat pig dad"……he said "we didn't have pigs on the farm so I've never seen what they eat".

I think it was almost a year before my dislocated shoulder stopped bothering me. I was in my late 30's when it happened. Tendons take a long time to heal. The older we get the longer it takes. They are like rubber bands in that as time passes they become less elastic so the older the rubber band the easier it can tear.
