The End is Near (and we deserve it) . . . Man Crushed to Death by Own Marijuana

Guy Crushed to Death by His Own Marijuana Stash

A man in Brazil was trafficking 1100 pounds of marijuana in the back seat of his car. He led the police on a three mile high speed chase and crashed into a tree. When he crashed, the marijuana in the back seat came into the front seat and smashed him into the steering wheel.

As my Granny would say, “That’ll learn ya’.”

While this may be an eye-roller, I concede that it’s a good lesson for those of us who indulge in home repairs, squeezing all kinds of cabinets and plumbing apparatus into our vehicles. I mean, no one wants to die from a toilet attack in their car and end up on this blog, right?

Hands down my favorite story of the week. Badass WWII Veterans Storm Memorial on National Mall, Defy Government Shutdown Closure. The government actually took the time to put up barriers to our public memorials which always have open access at any other time. Wonder where they got the money for that? I love these vets!

Obamacare kicked in this week. Getting health insurance is a blessing for some, but the regulations and devastation to Medicare have been apocalyptic for others. For those who choose not to sign up for health insurance, they could lose their property. A Facebook post went viral when a man talked about how Obamacare allows the government to seize fines from his bank account or take his house. This is partially true. Here is what Snopes has to say about the draconian penalties of not rendering unto the massive social parasite that is our broken health care system. Penalty Shot

    Otter pups and monkey hugs! Thanks for the share, and the cute video. If politicians had to undergo mandatory plastic surgery to resemble an array of adorable animals, I think the whole country would be happier.

      Hi Jennie.

      “If politicians had to undergo mandatory plastic surgery to resemble an array of adorable animals, I think the whole country would be happier.”

      Wow. You are a bit stern with the poor folks in DC. With so many of them already resembling roaches, maggots, and jackasses do we want to force them into even more primitive states of being?

    I used to imbibe of um, herbal substances. I was the safest driver on the road. the combined paranoia of being stopped by the authorities, reeaally being focused on the road and I forget, oh yeah , not wanting to crash kept me driving safely. I don’t do anything anymore and driving has lost all its fun.

        I am trying to learn Dreamweaver for my day job’s website because they’re all for setting up a blog and going digital with a newsletter. That’s my “other” project. LOL
