LOL GSB, they'll figure a way.

I saw this thing driving down Mathilda on fire. There's something you don't see every day.

I can't believe all of the illegals that come over and don't know how to properly separate their trash causing spontaneous combustion like we just witnessed. 101 was a mess for over an hour.

Three hour jam up and only one cop out there, our tax dollars at work.
