A Burma shave style of signs I saw on the roadside driving home from Missouri. There were two but I can only remember this one.

Thugs won't stop

To wait for a cop

it makes sense

Guns for self defense

Guns Save Lives.com


There was a second series of signs that read..

Criminals menacing

A lady alone

Deterrence requires

more than a phone.

Guns Save Lives.com


These signs were on I-55 in Illinois just over the border from Missouri.

Here's another one they have posted somewhere but I didn't see this one.

Dialed 9-1-1

And I'm on hold.

Sure wish I had

That gun I sold.

Polygraph for a fire department? Why would you need that to be a firefighter?

In case someone lies about the size of hose they normally drag around.


Or their kill/death ratio on call of duty. Both are extremely important in the world of hosedraggers.

It is a city requirement. They want to see if you are honest, what you admit to is not really an issue. I have to admit to past drug use. As long as I come clean, I'm good to go.

polygraph tests are probably required on most civil service jobs now.

even polygraph tests are being used in the private sector now, along with credit checks and background checks.

Some folks are mechanically sterile, and should not be allowed to touch things that are mechanical. I've always been able to fix just about anything, or put things back together that the mechanically sterile brothers took apart.

Dad once said of my two brothers: Give those boys a fifty pound anvil, and a feather. Come back in two hours and they will have broke the anvil.

Dad always tells me and everyone else I could sink a battle ship with a rubber mallet
Tear a bobcat up in a solid rubber room
Destroy a fire hydrant with a stick
and F up a wet dream ....... now thats bad

I remember G-dad when I was about 6 or 7 I was taking apart a little motor and could not figure out how to get the valve springs out so I started hitting them with a hammer . I will never forget what he told me when he saw me do that .
'' That is what a piss poor mechanic does '' It kinda hurt my feelings but it has been with me ever since and has taught me in the ways of Obi Wan Kanobi . I did get the springs off that way though , even had to do it a time or two since then . But he was a master tech on MG's Triumphs , Austins , all of those POS british and german cars , hence his temper I guess but I can pull and rebuild a set of dual carbs off a Midget with my eyes closed , prob one of the few my age that knows anythig about them old cars , which is to stay away from them , I do miss my Midget though , fun little car when the brakes , electrical and carburetors worked like they should , Lucas electrical ..... what POS company lmao
Mom had a Bug Eyed , red and black , I would give anything to have that car and G-dad use to have a mid 50s Jag XK out back man ol man what a beauty
