I see that stuff all over GSV.  Not crazy at all.
Might as well update the thread title.

Are you suggesting that quote should be the new title, or did you have something else in mind?  :D

Check the title of your post. (or this post, or my previous post) :)

I just saw a post from someone on Imgur of a guy falling backwards off a set of stairs in Hoboken, NJ.

Here's the guy starting to fall, and here's the guy at the bottom of the stairs.

I knew the pro-independence thing in Catalonia was crazy, but not to the point of filling the streets of a whole village with painted yellow ribbons. Notice also that sign showing the distances (in km) to several prisons around Madrid. I won't go further, as I would get banned (too political).

I now have a YouTube channel. However the main purpose of it is to chat in BigRigTravels streams, so don't expect any videos from me (BTW, here I use the local time of where Steve is now, currently Central, instead of my real time unless noted).

Most of us don't have a strong opinion either way, as it's not that relevant to the US (or Canada, for Canadian members here), and it's not nearly as publicized as Brexit around here.  I don't think it would be much of a problem.

msn.com's content is sometimes suspect, and generally filled with some clickbait thrown in.

On one of today's stories, it talks about what someone found in Google StreetView. 

And the story is about...

...someone's dog on their front lawn.

Seriously.

Oh, the head of the dog is blurred.  And there's a whole portion of the story about that.

1.  This sounds like something straight out of a small-town newspaper, not a national news site.  And a good time was had by all!

2.  What's really crazy, though, is the existence of an oviparous dog.

To put a damper on everyone's fun, here's the follow up to this scene. (It's News12 so it might be blocked if you don't have a cable login)

Thanks for posting that!  It didn't put a damper on my fun, but rather I enjoyed reading a little bit about his life and that he mattered to people.

Start here and pop over to the other side of the road.

Gives one just a sliver of hope for a Baltimore-Rochester I-83 someday! :-D :-P

If you go back under the bridge and up Gabouri (not Main) a click, you can see the peeled truck off in the distance. Bridge batted it off with barely a scratch!

I worked for a delivery company where a driver tore off a drive-through awning, but the damage wasn't on the truck.
