Almost as nice as this one...



But yours was just down the street from where I live!


If that is what professional drivers do in those countries, amateur drivers must be pretty atrocious!


I thought one became a professional after displaying wonderful prowess as an amateur, or does that only apply in sports?

Don't confuse professional with professionalism. They are often unrelated. "Professional" just means you get paid for doing something.

I often hear football (real football with a long ball) coaches saying, after their team lost, that they should be more professional;. I do not see how that works since the difference between an amateur and a professional is that the professional gets paid, so to be more professional the team needs to pay them more - but how does that win games? Ah, the typical airhead interviews full of clichés that get on media about sport!

Good luck with that!

Here, check this out!

(Apologies that the video is long, fast forward to about the 3 minute mark. That is where all the action is)

Nice, huh?
As a one time (army) truck driver, I can say I've seen my share of idiots, but this one is a class act!

The mod is bound and gagged in the back. We tried hypnosis, but it didn't work...

It also has a sensor made of pre-famulated amulite surmounted by a malleable logarithmic casing in such a way that the two spurving bearings are in a direct line with the panametric fam. The latter consisted simply of six hydrocoptic marzlevanes, so fitted to the ambifacient lunar waneshaft that side fumbling was effectively prevented.

The main winding is of the normal lotus-o-delta type placed in panendermic semi-boloid slots of the stator, every seventh conductor being connected by a non-reversible termie pipe to the differential girdle spring on the "up" end of the grammies.

The FF has now reached a high level of development, and it’s being successfully used in the operation of novertrunnions. Moreover, whenever a forescent skor motion is required, it may also be employed in conjunction with a drawn reciprocation dingle arm, to reduce soinasoidal repleneration.
