  1. DARLINGTON, S.C. — Dale Earnhardt Jr. still plans to compete in the Xfinity event at Darlington Raceway on Aug. 31, despite a recent plane crash.

    Earnhardt Jr. posted his update on Twitter late Wednesday night, saying his lower back is sore and swollen. He’s receiving daily treatment “solely to get well to race.”

    Earnhardt, his family and two pilots escaped a burning plane that veered off the runway at Elizabethton Municipal Airport in Tennessee last week.

    Earnhardt won NASCAR’s most popular driver 15 straight times from 2003 through 2017. He retired two years ago and is an NBC racing analyst.

    Darlington is Earnhardt’s one race this season.

  2. An English guy was very ill and his son went to visit him in the hospital. Suddenly, the father began to breathe heavily and grabbed the pen and pad by the bed. With his last ounce of strength, he wrote a note, dropped it, and died.

    The son was so overcome with grief that he didn’t remember slipping the note into his pocket. At the funeral, he reached into the pocket of his coat and immediately felt the note. He excitedly read it thinking it might be something he could recite during the service. It said:

    YOU WANKER — GET OFF MY OXYGEN PIPE!!!

    I bet he did not keep that note as a keepsake!

  3. Thought for the day

    There is more money being spent on breast implants and Viagra than on Alzheimer’s research. This means that by 2025, there should be a large elderly population with perky boobs and huge erections and absolutely no recollection of what to do with them.

      Sounds to me like it was the right side landing gear did not lock into position and had folded up that had caused the wreck?

      It appears that one of the pilots was the first man out, it appears that it’s Junior who had passed Isla out to the pilot, then it appears that Junior got out because he was there in the way of the exit after handing Isla to the pilot, then Amy exits and fell almost into the flames, then the video cuts off when the other pilot and Gus actually had exited out of the door.

      They had only about 20 seconds before the flames would have blocked their exit and burned them. WAAAY too CLOSE! The door did not open all of the way because the plane was laying on it’s side a bit. They should make those doors to be able to disconnect from the hinge at the bottom and fall away for such an emergency I would think?

      There is another video of Junior laying on the grass being tended to by the paramedics.

    1. One of my co-worker friends went and had invited me to go.
      I said, no way am I going to a Krylefest/JGRfest.
      I was right.

      I have been going to the Ky State fair instead, good times.
      We had some “teens” as the media refer to them as (blacks) play a “prank” last night as I was there. One of these “teens” lit off a large firecracker on the midway and he and his other 12 fellow “teen” cohorts all decided to run through the crowds yelling “active shooter”!

      The crowd paniced and I got many people to move behind a concrete wall for cover.

      These teens still kept running down the road away and back towards the midway yelling “shooter!”. They tried to hide behind the bushes but I and others pointed them out to the State Troopers and they all got their punk asses arrested and hauled away in golf carts. The news media does not mention on word of these arrests that we all had witnessed.

      The news media blew it all off for the most part. This was no joke. They could have gotten a lot of people hurt. They really deserved to be shot and they almost did.

        1. On the evening news, one of the perps running away slugged a cop. The cop caught up to him and then pummeled him good. Of course the news are outraged over what the cop did to the punk after he was caught up to and not the perp and it’s on youtube video. The cop happens to be a friend of mine. The punk had it coming. This is one time that I’m all for the cops pummeling perps because the rat bastard had started it by sucker punching the cop first.

          I am really really hating the news media anymore with their selective reporting and outright lying.

              1. I’m wearing a light shirt, tan cargo shorts, under the red and white corn on the cob booth sign (to the right side). Just look at the girl with the daisy dukes on, the lady on her cell phone and the guy with a dark blue ball cap on. at the 44 second left to go mark in the video.

  5. Kudos and praises for those two pilots for getting the plane stopped without rolling it over!

    That gave them all enough time to get out before the fire had consumed the plane.

      1. It was a Cessna Citation and those have excellent safety records.
        It skidded off the end of the runway, it just could not stop for some reason?
        Bad brakes or a reverse thruster failure? It was a prop plane but they still have the ability to pitch the props backwards to slow them down I think?

      1. I was told by a friend that Junior is live on TV at the Bristol track now on NBCSN.

        What a trooper?

        Plane crash at 4:30, then dusts himself off, gets out of the hospital then he’s on the air 4 hours later?

        He, Amy, Isla and Gus (I think? They said his dog..) all made it out of the ordeal and all are doing OK.

  6. This was simply too much of a time saver not to share it with you.

    1. Put both lids of the toilet up

    And add 1/8 cup of pet shampoo to the water in the bowl.

    2. Pick up the cat and soothe him while you carry him towards the bathroom.

    3. In one smooth movement, put the cat in the toilet and close the lid.

    You may need to stand on the lid.

    4. The cat will self agitate and make ample suds.

    Never mind the noises that come from the toilet, the cat is actually enjoying this.

    5. Flush the toilet three or four times.

    This provides a ‘power-wash’ and rinse’.

    6. Have someone open the front door of your home.
    Be sure that there are no people between the bathroom and the front door.

    7. Stand behind the toilet as far as you can, and quickly lift the lid.

    8. The cat will rocket out of the toilet, streak through the bathroom,

    And run outside where he will dry himself off.

    9. Both the commode and the cat will be sparkling clean.

    Sincerely,

    The Dog

  7. The secret of a happy marriage

    Tim and Jill celebrating their 15th wedding anniversary on the beaches
    of Montego Bay, Jamaica. They never argued and their domestic
    tranquility had long been legendary. People would say: “What a peaceful
    & loving couple”.

    A local newspaper reporter was inquiring as to the secret of their long
    and happy marriage.

    The Husband replied: “Well, it dates back to our honeymoon in America,
    “explained the man. “We visited the Grand Canyon, in Arizona and took a
    trip, down to the bottom of the canyon, by horse.

    We hadn’t gone too far when my wife’s horse stumbled and she almost fell
    off.”

    My wife looked down at the horse and quietly said: “That’s once.”

    We proceeded a little further and the horse stumbled again. Once more my
    wife quietly said: “That ‘s twice.”
    We hadn’t gone a half-mile when the horse stumbled for the third time.
    My wife quietly removed a revolver from her purse and shot the horse
    dead.

    I SHOUTED at her: “What’s wrong with you, woman! Why did you shoot the
    poor animal like that? Are you crazy?”

    She looked at ME, and quietly said: “That’s once.”

    And from that moment … We have lived happily ever after.

  8. A Story With a Moral

    I was a very happy man. My wonderful girlfriend and I had
    been dating for over a year, and so we decided to get
    married.

    There was only one little thing bothering me, it was her
    beautiful younger sister. My prospective sister-in-law was
    twenty-two, wore very tight miniskirts, and generally was
    bra-less. She would regularly bend down when she was near me
    and I always got more than a nice view. It had to be
    deliberate because she never did it when she was near anyone
    else.

    One day her ‘little’ sister called and asked me to
    come over to check the wedding invitations. She was alone
    when I arrived, and she whispered to me that she had
    feelings and desires for me that she couldn’t overcome.
    She told me that she wanted me just once before I got
    married and committed my life to her sister.

    Well, I was in total shock, and couldn’t say a word.
    She said, ‘I’m going upstairs to my bedroom, and if
    you want one, last wild fling, just come up and get me.’
    I was stunned and frozen in shock as I watched her go up the
    stairs. I stood there for a moment, then turned and made a
    beeline straight to the front door. I opened the door and
    headed straight towards my car.

    Lo and behold, my entire future family was standing
    outside, all clapping! With tears in his eyes, my
    father-in-law hugged me and said, ‘We are very happy
    that you have passed our little test. We couldn’t ask
    for a better man for our daughter. Welcome to the
    family.’

    And the moral of this story is:

    *Always keep your condoms in your car.*

  9. Tailgater

    A man was being tailgated by a stressed-out woman on a busy boulevard.

    Suddenly, the light turned yellow, just in front of him. He did the right thing, stopping at the crosswalk, even though he could have beaten the red light by accelerating through the intersection.

    The tailgating woman was furious and honked her horn and screaming in frustration as she missed her chance to get through the intersection, dropping her cell phone and makeup.

    As she was still in mid-rant, she heard a tap on her window and looked up into the face of a very serious police officer. The officer ordered her to exit her car with her hands up. He took her to the police station where she was searched, fingerprinted, photographed, and placed in a holding cell. After a couple of hours, a policeman approached the cell and opened the door. She was escorted back to the booking desk where the arresting officer was waiting with her personal effects.

    He said, “I’m very sorry for this mistake. You see, I pulled up behind your car while you were blowing your horn, flipping off the guy in front of you, and cussing a blue streak at him. I noticed the ‘What Would Jesus Do’ bumper sticker, the ‘Follow Me to Sunday-School’ bumper Sticker, And the chrome-plated Christian fish emblem on the trunk, Naturally…I assumed you had stolen the car.”

  10. I’m going to sound like a real wet blanket here, but I don’t think that it was cool at all for Harvick to have put his son Keelan in the race car to do the burnout.

    He put his son in potential danger with that stunt, because the car could explode doing that as tire smoke and burning rubber are flammable, the engine is running maximum RPM and can throw a rod (and both have happened before during burnouts), catch on fire or the clutch or flywheel can explode and sever the legs and feet. Clutch and flywheel explosions are rare anymore, but it can still happen and the passenger side of the race car has no protection for this. Try getting him out of a smoke filled race car like that? There are no doors to open and the kid is too small to crawl out on his own.
    The roll cage, shifter and driver’s seat would block Harvick from easily reaching his son too.

    Can you imagine what would happen to his son if this were to happen? He’s not wearing any sort of fire protection at all, no helmet, no seat or seat belt either.

    I think that NA$CAR ought to warn Harvick and the rest of the drivers to never do anything like this ever again.

    Sorry, but that’s just what I think.

      1. If Harvick wants to keep this tradition up, he needs to get his son a fire suit, fireproof gloves and a helmet at least. He’s got enough money to do that easily.

        I’d hate to see the kid get hurt because daddy can be a thoughtless meat head who’s only trying to be cool with his son.

  11. WHY MEN GET OUT OF BED……..
    A RECENT SURVEY WAS CONDUCTED TO DISCOVER WHY MEN GET OUT OF BED IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT:
    5% SAID IT WAS TO GET A GLASS OF WATER.
    12% SAID IT WAS TO GO TO THE TOILET.
    83% SAID IT WAS TO GO HOME.

  12. This joke is for BBB (and all but). I going to try to remember it.

    There was a wonderful nurse who prided herself that she never laughed at a patient and the patient’s body.
    She came in the room to help a man and he told her he had a problem with his private part and he showed it to her. She burst out laughing cause it was the size of a AAA battery.

    “Oh, I am so sorry sir. I don’t know what happened to me. That will never happen again. Please forgive me.
    Now what is the problem sir?”

    He said “It’s swollen.”

    She ran out of the room.
