   Every year around this time I do my Yellowjacket rant.  Yellowjackets are a type of wasp.  They are to the best of my knowledge the only other creature on earth besides man who realize their own mortality.
    For most of the year they are generally benign unless you disturb their nest.  Come late Summer and early Autumn they know their days are numbered.  The eat their own young, destroy their own nest, and go on a stinging orgy.  They will sting anything they can before they die.  Sometimes that's me.  Late Summer and early Fall Yellowjackets are a pain in the arse.
     I have been stung countless times by all different sorts of bees, wasps, hornets, etc..  Usually it's no big deal.  For some reason Yellowjacket stings are particularly painful for me and the pain lasts longer than with other stings.  Also in about a week  my skin around the area of the sting will all die and peel off.  Yellowjackets in the Fall suck.

    Once I was driving down one of our New Jersey highways, 295, in my Cable TV work van.  I was in the passing lane passing some slow moving vehicles. I looked in my rear view and there was a car glued to my rear bumper as close as I've ever seen someone tailgate before. I spend up and put on my turn signal to indicate that I was getting over into the middle lane so he could pass me.  I expected this would get the jerk off of my ass but he stayed glued to my rear bumper.  We were traveling much to fast for me to safely give him a break check.  I got past the slower traffic, pulled into the middle lane, and flipped the jerk the bird as he passed by.  To my surprise it was a state cop. He was so close to my rear bumper that I couldn't see his strobe lights (which weren't on).  The shelf in my truck blocked my view of them.  He pulled up next to me and gave me the evil eye.  From the shocked look on my face he must have figured out that I had no idea he was a Statey.  He sped off and left me to stuff my heart back into my chest.  Had he given me a ticket I would have fought it in court no matter how useless such and endeavor might have proven.  He was driving recklessly for no apparent reason.  Anyway it ended well..


Technically, at least in America, you can say or offend a cop in any way you choose and they can't legally do anything. A police officer is not legally allowed to be offended by a citizen. Now of course, we know in the real world they can and will find all sorts of false reasons to cite you if you do, but you were within your rights to do so. I'm glad it ended well for you though.

you're showing the backwards way to load toilet roll. Obviously it's meant to hang down the front NOT the back Smiley

I will remedy this in other people's houses, oh yeah lol


LOL. I have been known to turn the roll around in other people's houses too.

    Toilet paper roll positioning is one of the most polarizing debates in our society.  Both sides are certain that they're right and see placing the roll opposite of their preference is blatantly, obviously wrong. When I see it in the over the top position it looks stupid and annoying to me, as I'm sure the under position looks to the other side.  It has always been this way and always will be.  The question is why?

the right way, shown above, is right because the toilet paper is just hanging and not touching the wall or anything else ,also  a smaller length is hanging and you have better access to it. if I put it backwards then it will rest on the recess of the wall. with the right way you can also pull at almost any direction without friction whereas with the backwards way there will be friction if pulled downwards.

P.s. I'm also annoyed, every time i see it backwards i correct it

    I know I mentioned chiggers earlier.  For the second time this Summer I am chiggered.  This time it's my ankles.  They are ground meat right now.  I hate chiggers.
