Rear ended a hearse

On the way to work today, at an unusually early hour, I had a great deal of difficulty changing lanes. There wasn't an opportunity until a hearse went by me.

How funny, I thought, if I now got into an accident and rear-ended a hearse. That made me wonder who else that might have happened to, which led me, of course, to Google, which then, as it usually happens, led to something completely different.

  • Have your friends cut & paste this into their journal to see what unique things they've done in their life.

Thanks, rhonan, for showing me this lovely thing. I doubt reebar would be interested in a non-functional firearm prop, but I find it gorgeous. Have to wonder if, somewhere, someone has created a functional one.

There's some good job energy going around lately, about which I am ecstatic. Congratulations, you several people! Now, everybody lets hum together and get the energy to engulf the rest of the job-seeking among us as well. Oooooooooohhhhmmmmm!
