    Just because i told one to bog off he nearly arrested me, he was accusing me of speeding at a ridiculous speed 65 in a 40 limit, hells bells i hardly do that on the motorways my aged vehicle would probably explode its engine, the cheeky so and so even accused me of being aggressive which i was not, i only refuted his lies.

    Too bad he didnt arrest you. When I was going 60 in a 30 mph zone, I said "why hellooo officer can I get you any doughnuts?' He gave me 1 point and 60 bucks fine. He could have given me wreckless driving. He was on the side walk with his motorcycle and radar gun, so I couldnt see him at all until he walked into the middle of the road and told me to pull over.

    He said he (clocked) me at 65mph, this is between two roundabouts (less) than a quarter of a mile apart, i guess i could get to 65 if i screamed the guts out of my car but i did not.

    I'd be looking for kids to shove down if I was a big burly cop made to wear hot pants and move around in a glorified golf cart all day while trying to maintain a presence of the law too. Joking aside, the kid was somewhat disrespectful, but that cop completely misjudged what were just a bunch of dumb kids that don't understand how to speak formally. I roll my eyes that they were ignorant of no skating: It sounds exactly like the stuff I used to make up as a kid.

    Well, she certainly was no virgin, and they didn't have streets in those days, so....

    But still a mere child by your standards. At least I don't have to scrape the dinosaur **** off of the clay tablet to display my birth certificate. :tongue:

    Hmmm... lessee about that. I've seen your picture in the Member Photo thread, and you've seen the picture of my brother who is over 80 years old (which I posted as my own).
    It was actually a bit amusing, in the midst of the sadness at my youngest brother's funeral last year, that W met my oldest brother and said '****, there are two of you?!

    Welcome to the world of police corruption. On tuesday I collapsed in my lab and started puking and shaking uncontrollably. I called 911, and when police came with the paramedics they tried to arrest me for running a meth lab simply because I work in a pharmaceutical lab. I probably would have died if the paramedic didn't tell the cop to "f*** off" and slam the ambulance door in the cop's face. 2 days in hospital and I'm fine again, all thanks to a paramedic who cared enough to put a cop in his place.

    Grrr!! Cops!!!

    Jeez, Shawn... that totally sucks. I'm glad to hear that you're okay.
    Please, though, don't paint all police officers with the same brush. As with any other career, you'll always find a few *******s mixed in with a bunch of really good people. There will always be school guidance counsellors who molests students, priests who molest alter boys, dentists who molest patients under anesthesia, cops who do whatever they want because they have guns... Most police, like most dentists and priests, are really good people. The bad ones just stand out because of the position of power.

    By the way, I thought that you had disappeared. W and I were in 'Chuck a couple of weeks ago. I PM'd Scorpa to meet for a drink, but she wisely fled the city before we got there. If I'd known that you were still around, I would have invited you as well. Next time.
