now a days you don't even see the little wusses outside when its cold and certainly not doing anything resembling work.

what made me think of this , was me brain storming of how to get rid of the snow without me having to sweat.
Yep...Thats what I did as a kid, get a couple friends together and go around the neighborhood shoveling driveways. Made pretty good money.

We need this guy...

about 10 years ago was the only time i've ever paid someone to shovel snow for me. the mistake i made was paying the little asswipe before i inspected his work. i still ended up shoveling because he half assed it.

indeed...i'm talking late 70's and 80's , so we weren't charging 30 or 40 bucks. we were mostly 3 - 10 dollar range depending on the area to be shoveled. but 3 people can knock out a 30 foot sidewalk in about 10 minutes...hell we'd do 20 - 30 jobs a day...chaching !!!
a 12 year old in 1980 with 50 bucks in his pocket be livin large ...

The Raleigh car fire has gone viral

http://twitchy.com/2014/02/12/crazie...surreal-scene/

Another Atlanta car fire (once again a BMW) here - audio play by play of the blaze kicks in around the 2:35 mark on the video below

One unfortunate motorist on Windy Hill Road in Marietta slid backward on the icy road, and tried to spin his tires to get out. That didn’t work out so well for him. His car ended up catching fire — directly across the road from where 11Alive’s Paul Crawley was set up for a live shot on the dangerous road conditions.

The car ended up catching fire on live television as Crawley yelled to the driver to get out.

Cobb County Fire crews showed up to put out the fire, and the hapless motorist was not hurt.




And here is video of a snow plow putting a car fire out by covering the blazing car with snow



"Cars are catching on fire like crazy"
