This is not your typical Oregon driver...

The weather has been a bit rough the last few days. As a result, Becca, my sister in law and I have been having our own little party at home being semi productive and doing cool stuff like baking cookies. I even got to go rescue my brother in law from Wilsonville yesterday, therefore fulfilling my driving requirement for the week.

Here's what happens when you don't use common sense:



Two things of note about the video. First, this happened right next to my old work. I half expected to see my old co-workers car get plowed. Second, this totally reminded me of the glory days of living in NW Portland. We'd go buy a 12 pack, sit out on my friend Matt's porch and heckle the people trying to parallel park in the neighborhood. I can imagine they were doing the same thing, only with Irish Coffees on Tuesday.

Finance class is starting... Now. Gotta run!

You don't realize how steep that street is from the video, but Brian can speak to that since he had to walk up that hill to work on a daily basis.

Ahh. That was, in fact, the very question I just emailed you. That makes a lot more sense now. :)

This is the most popular video on the internet right now. My college friends in Connecticut saw it and sent it to me.
Hey kids, let's have some fun with Physics today! Let's start with some 4000 pound objects, add gravity, remove friction using ice and summer tires, and mix in a healthy dose of human stupidity. Result: $20,000 of damage.
