I have heard of dual booting , but didn't think that is quite what was meant.

First and prob last time I'll see this. I was going back to the office after lunch. Was behind an 18 wheeler. He was turning Rigjt to go up a huge hill. So he had to watch the curbs and walls by the turn. What he didn't watch was the low clearence train tracks above him and he plowed into them. His trailer hit so hard that it caused him to bounce backwards causing the cab of the truck to be smashed forward. I almost crapped my pants because it was an empty trailer and it sounded like a bomb went off. My highlight of the day!!! FAIL!!! Sadly no pics I'm sorry!!

heres my best fail so far...



Looking close you'll see I was going to slow (handicap friend in the jeep just had back surgery but insited on riding) and we dropped into the cross ruts. Yup... that was the end of that. I had dirt by the front passenger wheel over my axles almost to the frame. Looked a jeep was being born out of the ground!

That sloppy shit just coated my duratracs and made 'em useless!

Thanks! ^

We had to tie together straps to make 70 feet of strap in order for an F250 to pull me out from the gravel driveway. Everytime he tried from anywhere else it would just get buried right along w/me!

I think the fail is using a strap with metal hooks, unless I'm not looking at that right...

I was only bummed at the bill. It took a bill dozer to get me out and 3 new tow straps. Which equaled 450 bux

I've posted this one before, but I think it belongs here. I'd hate to see what happened when he went under a traffic light or some power lines



-also, mismatched spare

Not really a fail....but sucks none the less.


And this is a gear that failed after metal shavings worked it's way between it and another gearset.....and that's a normal sized pallet underneath it.






And this is something a guy wore at my school for an intramural dodgeball game.....



That's all for now....and yes, I took these pics.
