No, not through the tread. A sharp, mostly flat shard (think arrowhead) went between the treads and pierced the inner wall of the tire.



Just lucky, I guess.


This weirdness isn't anything new. Last year a cotter pin



pierced just the sidewall of one of my truck tires - roughly like this:



I can't imagine how that's even physically possible, but I'm here to tell the tale. \_(ツ)_/

I wanted to make a thread about my fucked up adventure in Daytona. It is already fucked up, because when I went to Nothing Land the little blue icon is not there to tap for a new thread. And why do I have to log in everytime? I was just here yesterday.

Mebbe I should step on Jim's thread. Boy I miss that dude. I can see why he makes good money. Just one weekend with him I felt like I found my long lost brother. He makes quite an impression. Anyways thats enough butt kissing.haha. I really like Jim thats my story and I am sticking to it.

Here the first of many pictures. I like to show my pics as it happens instead of next week etc.

Over on the 'What's making you happy?' thread, Clod encouraged us thus...

My offering...

My good news is that I received a letter from HMRC (the IRS's brother in arms) that I actually understood.

It took about a dozen readings and extensive use of a calculator, but understand it I did!
Well, that did it. In this morning's post another one of those brown envelopes from HMRC landed on the mat.
This time however, I haven't got a clue as to what it all means.
I've just adopted the default view that I shall be out of pocket.
Lesson learned. A little more humility is needed when tangling with HMRC.

Did you reply to the fist missive which you understood, or is this just heaped on?
Maybe rereading the first letter they realized you might understand it and sent a corrected version.

Did you try Google translate?

Letters from HMRC tend to be of the 'diktat' variety and you reply at your peril. Resistance is futile.
The first letter related to FY 2017-18 and today's offering concerned the confiscatory delights of the year to come.
What really annoys me is that they refer to taxpayers as 'customers'. Victims would be more appropriate.

'Customers'. Give me fucking strength. I don;t object to tax as a general rule, though I reserve the right to gripe at the details - but calling us customers is ludicrous. We haven't given them our custom, nor can we take our custom elsewhere.
