    Mass Turnpike research.

    Researchers for the Massachusetts Turnpike Authority found over 200 dead crows near greater Boston recently, And there was concern that they may have died from Avian Flu.
    A Bird Pathologist examined the remains of all the crows, and, to everyone's relief, confirmed the problem was definitely NOT Avian Flu.
    The cause of death appeared to be vehicular impacts.
    However, during the detailed analysis it was noted that varying colors of paints appeared on the bird's beaks and claws.
    By analyzing these paint residues it was determined that 98% of the crows had been killed by impact with trucks, while only 2% were Killed by an impact with a car.
    MTA then hired an Ornithological Behaviorist to determine if there was a cause for the disproportionate percentages of truck kills versus Car kills.
    He very quickly concluded the cause: When crows eat road kill, they always have a look-out crow in a nearby tree to warn of impending danger.
    They discovered that while all the lookout crows could shout "Cah", not a single one could shout "Truck."
    Gearhubs demystified and other cool stuff.

    You can further the brotherhood of man by eliminating class.
    You can lift the wage earner up by equalizing earnings.
    You can bring about prosperity by overturning the holders of power.
    You can strengthen the weak by eating the the strong.
    You can help the poor by destroying the rich.

    Actually the one of funniest jokes I ever heard was over a CB waiting to go through a tunnel under construction. Some other trucker had a routine that was cracking us up. Guy was wasted in a cab...
