Reminds me of a story:(not mine)

"There was once the GREATEST fisherman in all the world in this tiny little nothing town with a pier, but they were proud of their fisherman. One day a young man strolls into town and says, "I'm the greatest fisherman that ever lived." The villagers wuickly challenge him to go to the pier and fish against the TRUE and only GREATEST fisherman in the world. The young man does so, he finds the old sun wrinkled man, sitting there with his line down. The young man presents his challenge and the old man says calmly, "Come tomorrow morning."
The next morning, before sunrise, the two fisherman sat on the pier. The young man quicklt snatched a fish. "LOOK!" I've just started and I'm already beating you.
Rules, the largest catch.
The day continued into afternoon and the young man's luck held up, and with each catch a bigger fish. "Old man, give up! I have a better rod, better bait, I'm younger, and look... at all this."
"The day is not over," said the old man.
The young man fished until 7 pm and burst to his feet. "You lost old man. You lost." He took his fish and left the pier. The villagers waved him goodbye, knowing still they had the best fisherman in the world. At around 8:30 the old man caught the largest fish ever, enough to feed the entire village, a festival was held and all ate of the fish.
The baker said, "I wish that young man could have seen this."
"He never will, he hasn't got enough patience," said the old fisherman.

I've bagged two so far in my lifetime using this method!!!

First one cost me $3500 (hit her doing 70mph)
Second one was $2000 (he hit me, ran right into the side of my car).

It's plain crazy up here - I live in the 'burbs and just making into work in one piece is a challenge.

Once the rut is on, they don't care where they jump, run or screw.
