    I put this under money .. because, if you hit one of these .. it’ll cost

    Saw more large potholes today .. they have been around for months, only getting bigger. One in town was at least diameter of 5 gallon bucket and four inches deep. Luckily, slower speed so saw it in time. There were some red cones dropped next to some of the worst .. that’s the least they could do.

    Out on highway, they are deep, dangerous and everywhere. Alignment killers. The deep one near my mailbox in traffic lane, I could easily repair with a bag of cold patch ..
    however, I’d probably be fined if I did and someone from county saw me and doesn’t want just anyone fixing their potholes.

    .. >>> all I’m saying is that you guys with cycles, after your spring oil change .. when you head out .. be especially careful out there until this is resolved.

    Everyone please be careful on the roads. Even after the potholes get fixed there are women drivers everywhere.

    In regards to women, how many teeth must one break before realizing there is no meat on the bone?

    Agreed. These women have been given licences and are behind the wheel. Driving manoeuvres are based on feelings and they have little regard for public safety and others on the road. F~~~ are women hard on vehicles!

    Gotta do it at night.

    Women want everything, but want responsibility and accountability for nothing.

    My ex was involved in 4 separate collisions with other vehicles.

    All my life I've had doubts about who I am, where I belonged. Now I'm like the arrow that springs from the bow. No hesitation, no doubts. The path is clear. And what are you? Alive. Everything else is negotiable. Women have rights; men have responsibilities; MGTOW have freedom. Marriage is for chumps. If someone stands in the way of true justice, you simply walk up behind them and stab them in the heart-R'as al Ghul.

    You are a dying breed. My hats of to you.

    Amazing that in this day an age, you can get FINED for FIXING a PROBLEM.

    I did the same s~~~ 3 years ago on a sidewalk curb. A truck came by and chewed that s~~~ right off. Even the metal”Lip” to protect it broke in two. (Old 1919 Iron) 3 cops came, all women, while I was putting heat on the Metal where I needed to wack it back in shape with a sledgehammer. NO s~~~. SO they told me to stop. I said “Fine”. 2 minutes latter, A woman had to go down the ramp of the sidewalk where the concrete was broken and a the metal “Lip” got caught in her “Hoveround” wheelchair, got caught on the metal that was sticking out I was trying to bang back in place. Guess who’s wheel chair fell over.

    Now, You know what I did? I sat there and let those 3 female not only pick that women up, but try to put her back in her chair while the fire department and ambulance came. All 400+ Lbs of her.

    There was about 10 Looky Loos that saw it. I got a call from their a law firm representing the woman months later. He asked, “Would you come in and serve as a witness?” — “OH HELL YES” I got a call 20 Minutes later saying never mind. I heard she settled out of court.

    3 months later, and she was Moving out of the state.

    The lord works in Mysterious ways.

    You are all alone. If you have been falsely accused of RAPE, DV, PLEASE let all men know about the people who did this. http://register-her.net/web/guest/home

    Thanks for that .. it was good to hear

    I know what I did was probably against some ordinance .. I know that and that issue was on my mind
    but, I know in my heart tonight that I didn’t add any additional danger to anyone .. none .. I wouldn’t have done it otherwise

    I’ve been doing blacktop repair on my own driveway for many years and I know the material I used was DOT approved and OK

    when the guys eventually come by, hopefully, over next few weeks and throw some patch in holes .. I’ve seen what they use and mine was of equal or very likely higher quality .. I used some really good patch in 50 lb bag made over in Minnesota
    also, when road guys fill one they don’t even bother to sweep the grit from the hole edges so that patch just drops back out during season
    .. what I’m trying to say is that I needed to do this because they are so far behind in their patching, potholes everywhere .. someone would have
    had damage from this, alignment, suspension, cycles

    I walk over this hole each day I get my mail and it was tearing me apart seeing it in driving lane .. and no one to call, no one has time to come out here now with truck for one patch, they are swamped
    but with cycles now coming back .. this needed to be fixed now or someone would get hurt .. otherwise, I would have stayed away ..but, this one couldn’t wait
    so close to end of my driveway .. just on other side of road in right tire lane .. about eight feet from mailbox

    Like iMickey said, you are a dying breed. That was awesome.

    Making the world a better place, one hole at a time.

    Had a former employer (asshole really, maybe he deserved it) hit a big pothole with his bicycle. Cost him about $12K of dental work.

    So yeah, thank you, brother.

    While dating my ex she once asked if she could move my classic muscle car. I thought about it for a second and since it was a schooch over manuver in the driveway I said “Sure!” I went inside figuring she would be ultra careful and since it was a heavy car with manual steering and clutch, I figured it would be a bit amusing as well.
    As I came back outside, I was just in time to witness the front left corner of my 1970 Roadrunner meet the corner of my parents home. The sound was sickening.

    My ex actually became quite a good driver…. better than most men actually. After that incident I taught her how to drive.

    Marry again, Hell NO ! ( Even JESUS was hung on a cross just once)
