Default good way to start the day

Well after leaving my house at 3:17 this morning in the dark foggy as hell weather I got a little surprise. Last year in Modesto there was a bunch of vandalism's, not your average vandals though. These kids where taking chunks of asphalt and other items that would blend in with the road at night put them in the middle of the lane, grab a camera, go hide, and film people smashing over them.

Well apparently the rage has moved to Oakdale. I was cruising along on my way to work. Visibility was the hood of the car, and then cabooom. Left side of the car came off the ground, and the engine stopped. So I coasted over to look at what I hit. A nice basketball sized piece of asphalt. After it bounced off my oil pan it went on its path down the rest of the car. Needless to say, the oil pan has a wonderful crack (had, just finished welding it up), exhaust is all dinged up, and I hope it didnt do anything else. ***********. Anyways, watch out for **** like this.

That sucks I herd of this happening, I'm almost always driving a truck so I don't think I would have to worry about the dannage to much, but if it did happen to me I would hunt those punks down.

Yeah, I regrettably did **** close to this in high school, although it would have never messed up anyones car. We just streched caution tape across the road and watched people scratch their head, then either turn around or drive through it. Our mommas taught us respect for other peoples property.
