I've avoided 3 accidents in my small car that would have collected your truck. When jacked-up pickups get too close to me, I just drive underneath them & come out on the other side.
Don't try that with my GMC Jimmy, it isn't jacked up and has a brush guard on the front that can mount a plow blade which would be great for scraping up smart car remains.

Funny thing is that while a smart car might survive it dosn't mean that those inside will. After all, since it is so small the chances of someone bouncing a head off some part of the car.

The problems with accidents involving such small cars and such big SUVs is that physics is still physics and engineering can only do so much to cheat when dealing with that much kinetic energy.

Talking about distractions, what happened to Earthling-1? I kinda miss the old fellow.
Most likely on vacation somewhere else. They have Catalonia voting for independence, people upset with austerity, crime is up, and many think that riots in Spain are around the corner. I would be willing to Bet that Earthling-1 would be willing to clear out before something blows up. To take an extended vacation somewhere a little more peaceful.

Are you sure the dirtling isn't in your back yard? That would be its mountain hideaway for sure. The once runner up for your position of the Less than a Box of Rocks award.

A warming climate? Great! Maybe for our S. Ohio house I'll grow some banana trees!
No! Wait! I almost forgot! We've already been growing and overwintering banana trees here for about 20 years!

Well good for you and the native Ohio people. One thing for sure your potassium level should be in good shape. Hay do you use a brown paper bag to store them?

So let's end the government subsidy of large SUVs and start taxing the living hell out of them instead, as sane countries do. By the way, there's a more apt name for those "brush guards"; some call them kid shredders.

Strange that 'steenking piddling diddling middling mudling mudslinger dirtling' disappeared right after Pres. Obama became Pres. Obama for the second time. I don't miss the slimy steenking filthy vile reprobate rooting(& rotting) racist pukey proud pig.

Think 'steenking piddling diddling middling mudling mudslinger dirtling' morphed into phdudd with less brainpower, altho 'steenking piddling diddling middling mudling mudslinger dirtling' was 'earthling has no brain'.

“Three years ago, President Obama helped create a United Nations Green Slush Fund that would redistribute over $100 billion from developed countries to developing countries,”

“While he has been racking up huge deficits and talking up tax increases, the president has already sent billions of American taxpayer dollars to the United Nations – and he’s managed to do it quietly so that no one will notice,”

“... the top U.N. climate chief: she sees herself as the overseer of ‘transforming’ the lives of everyone on the planet,”

"...if “green” agenda campaigners get their way, the biggest tax increase ever could soon be coming out of Washington. Bigger even than the hundreds of billions of dollars Obamacare will collect. In fact, in the range of $1.2 trillion to $1.6 trillion. A year."

“While all of the attention today in Washington is on the looming fiscal cliff, President Obama’s administration is quietly handing over billions of dollars to the United Nations in the name of global warming."

“It’s not surprising that this year’s conference has been ignored. Remember EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson admitted to me that EPA’s global warming regulations are based primarily on the now exposed Climategate science of the completely discredited UN IPCC.‘The stink of intellectual corruption is overpowering.’‘This is the worst scientific scandal of our generation,’”

He said the simple fact is that the conference has nothing to do with the environment but is all about “spreading the wealth,” or taking taxes from the United States and giving them away.

“At the global warming conference in Milan, I asked an African delegate who I knew why he had attended and he said,‘It has nothing to do with the science; it’s because it’s the biggest party of the year.’

the African delegate was right, it’s all about money and power.

“Once you control carbon, you control the world,” he said.

Empowering and funding the UN dictators to rule the world with your tax dollars. No wonder they have been so brazen lately. Now, the UN wants total control over the internet.

More hysteria from World Nut Daily. Unemployment is now lower than when President GWB left office.

Except unemployment was 4.4% and anybody not working was either ill or didn't want to work. Wasn't many people giving up looking for work back then. Heck there wasn't a week went by somebody was offering me more money or benefits if I would just go to work for them. There was not enough people to fill all the jobs. You libtards and your revisionist history will not stand with me.
