    You're right for the wheels. But I think something is possible painting its "robe" :

    in a manner it would give the feeling Eddie has two legs. :)

    Well you’re right, by painting the beveled mid-section darker, you can get the illusion of two legs most probably. Great idea my friend!

    Hey @Addi Ras how do you handle snow in the UK? Do people go crazy and buy up all the milk and bread (like here in the US)?

    Have a friend in Maine who said they had the snow to the level where you cannot go anywhere.

    Is it like that for you ATM?

    If you're using a smart phone or a tablet then maybe the sensors in the screen are faulty.

    I drive an hour to work every morning, and an hour back after. 5 days a week.
    Pretty much all of December is driving in this condition at 60 to 70 mph (96 to 112 kmh).

    My day looks like this:
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    During that month..ish (it's more like End of October through to the end of January...ish, with December being hell month), I see at least one of these in the morning and another on the way back...but in all reality, it's more common that I'll see about 3 each way.
    [​IMG]

    The Alaska DOT has estimated that a citizen dies, as a statistical average, once every 5 days on the highway from an accident.

    Well yeah...no sh*t. Because you won't friggen close anything down!...EVER!

    About 13% of all crashes happen on the highways, and the highways alone account for 36% of lethal car crashes. This is the single largest category of fatal car accidents (drunk driving is another, accidental death via improper use is another, etc....).

    Basically...it's one step short of Mad Max on our highways.

    Here, look at this...this is what we're driving on for a few months...it's just a sheet of ice:
    [​IMG]


    It's estimated that Alaskans drive about 5 billion miles annually.
    Now...if you think that's not all that much...keep in mind that, by far, the highest volume of traffic daily is the Glenn Highway from Wasilla to Anchorage.
    We're talking a 40 mile strip of highway.
    Here's the kicker. 45% of the population of Wasilla/Matsu drives to Anchorage daily to go to work on that 40 miles of highway.
    Matsu has a population of about 88,000.

    So that's just over 20 thousand drivers (reduce that 88,000 down to only the work force) driving 80 miles a day over two lanes (mostly), 5 days a week, and for ~ 2.5 months it looks something along the lines of the above.

    Yeah...no wonder we're killing people on highways. We probably have one of the most lethal strips of 40 miles in the country.
    Roughly one in every 300-500 drivers on this highway a year dies.

    Roll them dice!
    Dying to make them bones!

    Cheers,
    Jayson
