  1. This is a bricklayer's accident report, which was printed in the newsletter of the Australian equivalent of the Workers' Compensation board. This is a true story. Had this guy died, he'd have received a Darwin Award for sure. Dear Sir, I am writing in response to your request for additional information in Block 3 of the accident report form. I put "poor planning" as the cause of my accident. You asked for a fuller explanation and I trust the following details will be sufficient. I am a bricklayer by trade. On the day of the accident, I was working alone on the roof of a new six-story building. When I completed my work, I found that I had some bricks left over which, when weighed later were found to be slightly in excess of 500lbs. Rather than carry the bricks down by hand, I decided to lower them in a barrel by using a pulley, which was attached to the side of the building on the sixth floor. Securing the rope at ground I went up to the roof, swung the barrel out and loaded the bricks into it. Then I went down and untied the rope, holding it tightly to ensure a slow descent of the bricks. You will note in Block 11 of the accident report form that I weigh 135 lbs. Due to my surprise at being jerked off the ground so suddenly, I lost my presence of mind and forgot to let go of the rope. Needless to say, I proceeded at a rapid rate up the side of the building. In the vicinity of the third floor, I met the barrel, which was now proceeding downward at an equally impressive speed. This explained the fractured skull, minor abrasions and the broken collar bone, as listed in section 3 of the accident report form. Slowed only slightly, I continued my rapid ascent, not stopping until the fingers of my right hand were two knuckles deep into the pulley. Fortunately by this time I had regained my presence of mind and was able to hold tightly to the rope, in spite of beginning to experience pain. At approximately the same time, however, the barrel of bricks hit the ground and the bottom fell out of the barrel. Now devoid of the weight of the bricks, that barrel weighed approximately 50 lbs. I refer you again to my weight. As you can imagine, I began a rapid descent, down the side of the building. In the vicinity of the third floor, I met the barrel coming up. This accounts for the two fractured ankles, broken tooth and several lacerations of my legs and lower body. Here my luck began to change slightly. The encounter with the barrel seemed to slow me enough to lessen my injuries when I fell into the pile of bricks and fortunately only three vertebrae were cracked. I am sorry to report, however, as I lay there on the pile of bricks, in pain, unable to move, I again lost my composure and presence of mind and let go of the rope and I lay there watching the empty barrel begin its journey back down onto me. This explains the two broken legs. I hope this answers your inquiry.
  2. Students were assigned to read 2 books, "Titanic" and "My Life" by Bill Clinton. One smart-arse student turned in the following book report with the proposition that they were nearly identical stories! His cool professor gave him an A+ for this report. Titanic:.... . $29.99 Clinton:.... . $29.99 Titanic:.... . Over 3 hours to read. Clinton:.... . Over 3 hours to read. Titanic:.... . The story of Jack and Rose, their forbidden love, and ensuing catastrophe. Clinton:.... . The story of Bill and Monica, their forbidden love, and ensuing catastrophe. Titanic:.... .

Titanic:.... Rose goes down on a vessel full of seamen. Clinton:.... . Monica...ooh, let's not go there, either. Titanic:.... . Jack surrenders to an icy death. Clinton:.... . Bill goes home to Hillary which is basically the same thing.
  3. I bought an 09 Ruby about three weeks ago. Only have 30 miles on it. I will share my opinion of it with you. It has a 499 cc liquid cooled engine. Part time four wheel drive. Automatic tranny with High and low range. With the ability to be in auto or thumb shift mode. The tranny is very smooth. It's a hydro stat transmission.I mostly use auto mode, but when I have used ESP mode I also like that feature. Going into 4x4 mode is also smooth. Engine braking is unbelievable!!!! Handling for trail and dirt road riding is outstanding!! Stock tires work great for stockers. Ergonomics are also great(for me). I have added a 2500 lbs winch. I will be adding hand guards, and a snowplow soon. I currently modifying the plow from my old Ozark to fit. I have widen it from 46 inch to 58 inch wide. Looks like something out of a Mad Max movie.

  5. The Land Report: As the Gulf Coast Quad Racing Association (GCQRA) continues its 2007 Pin It to Win It Series, the number of racers continues to grow and the faces on the podium continue to change. With Round 1 and 2 Expert champion, Chris Brian sidelined with a serious neck injury, the first place money was up for grabs and the top riders in the area duked it out with some spectacular motos capped off with wins in round 3 by Craig Porter and Round 4 by Steven McBride. McBride fought off Media All-Star Austin Wilson at Beaumont MX in one of the better head to head matches of the day. These two exchanged stickers and phone numbers for the entire 6 laps of the expert main. Travis Beyner beat out rounds 1 and 2 A class winner Ryan Callahan for the top shelf on the podium for round 4 while Marco Castillo took round 3. In the Sport Quad class, WPSA supermini racer Cody Land took his first win of the season in dramatic fashion over teammate and best friend, Tyler Webster. The Sport quad class is one of, if not the, most competitive class in the GCQRA with terrific battles among racers Garrett Baker, Cody Bales, Brent Sellers as well as Land and Webster. In the B class, Skyler Jancowiak continued his dominance of the class with the win in round 3 while WPSA racer Josh Bateman took the W in round 4. Little Ty Cruse has established himself as the one to beat in the Stock Mini class with dominate wins in all 4 rounds. With the growth of our women’s class, the gals are putting up terrific matches among front runners Debra Mercado and her daughter Curren as well as Angela Bryant and Kayla Melder. The GCQRA is honored to have our season underwritten and sponsored by Honda of Houston and we welcome all those in the area to come out and experience not just the race but, the entire weekend’s festivities! Come experience the best show on dirt! _________________

  7. Gulf Coast Quad Racing Association - GCQRA The second season of racing for the GCQRA is in full swing and rounds 1 and 2 are now in the record books. Round 1 saw the kick off of the “Pin it to Win it Series” come to life with a staggering 154 entries! Series sponsor Honda of Houston, 3-Palm Extreme Sports Park and the GCQRA brought out the big guns for the inaugural race of the season and quad racers from all over came for what proved to be one of the biggest quad events ever held in South Texas. National pro-am racer Chris Brian set the tone in the Expert and Pro-Am classes by taking the win in both classes. The battle for 2nd in the Pro-Am class was being fought by locals Brandon Eaves, Steven McBride and Anthony Jackson with Eaves taking 2nd, McBride 3rd and Jackson 4th. The Expert main saw Brian hauling in the first place cash with Daniel Donnan banking 2nd and Greg Livanec in 3rd. With over 53 riders entered from the super-mini down to the pee-wee classes, the little kids were the big story for the weekend as new riders duked it out with kids returning for their 2nd and 3rd seasons of competing. 2006 GCQRA Rider of the Year, J.D. Head picked up where he left off in 2006 by dominating the Super Stock class with a 1-1 finish and the overall. Ryan Callahan scored big in the A class with wins in rounds 1 and 2. Round 2 had a big treat as National pros passing through Texas on their way to California, stopped by for Saturday practice and put on a show that left a lasting impact on young and old alike. John Natalie, Chad Wienen, Harold Goodman and Greg Gee put their skills on display during private 20 minute practice sessions which saw the fences lined with gawking spectators dreaming of the day they too could tail-whip over 90 foot finish line table tops! Chris Brian once again dominated the Expert and Pro-Am ranks for round 2. While the real battle was for 2nd between Greg “Supersonic” Livanec and Daniel Donnan seeing Livanec take the 2nd overall. Please visit our website (www.gcqra.com) for the schedule and see our forum for the latest chat and goings on around the GCQRA.
