Movie suggestions: 'Tora! Tora! Tora!" followed by "Midway." "Band of Brothers" box set followed by "The Pacific."

Or all these.

Dude! I'm so sorry to hear about your accident. I hope you recover quickly and fully.

Given the Stig reference... I would have to say a couple hours of Top Gear.

There was a great series in 70's? on BBC called Connections with James Burke. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WgOp-nz3lHg
He does this thing, like What do midevil monks and motorcars have in common...

Heal up quick, and hope the claims process goes smoothly.

Helmet, gloves, jacket with padding and boots did their job. My knee would be much better off it I had worn my over pants. Gonna be hobbling around for a but and taking public transit.

Line of the night: woman in the ER asks us what happened to the other driver, Jesse: "he bought a motorcycle, slightly used"

Other driver stuck around and have his info to the PD. There were witnesses, but I don't know if any gave statements to the PD or contact info.

So what movies should I be watching today?

Yes. Mike Beer.

516-569-4107

mebesq@aol.com

I had an appearance ticket for excessive speeding on the Triborough Bridge (when it still was the Triborough Bridge).

Made a phone call to Mike, mailed a checked, never met Mike in person, never set foot in a courtroom. About a year or so later, "case dismissed."

Here's my post in this thread from 2009.

Tipsy

EDIT: Just found a link to his website.

I am selling a pair of barely used Chatterbox GMRS X1 communicators with open/flip up helmet kits over in the flea market. NYC inmates can save the s&h charges if we arrange an in person delivery.

Linky-poo.

Now back to our regularly scheduled shenanigans...

Good video.
California roads do seem fairly tame compared to NYC craziness.

I know LA highways can get crazy though.

I saw a great patch the other day:

"I just saved a bunch of money on my motorcycle insurance -
By not stopping for the police"
