Almost killed squirrel today

I was driving to work on a 2 lane road. This squirrel popped out of nowhere and ran straight towards my car. I veered the other way almost driving myself into a ditch. That son-of-a-bitch squirrel was startled or something. He did a U-turn at the last min. I used supreme reflexes to swing my car the other way at the very last moment, avoiding steamrolling the squirrel. That asshole squirrel better be thankful to me for still being alive!

Re: Almost killed squirrel today

In an unrelated incident, I got bit by a spider today. My fingertips and toe tips were tingly all day.

Lets hear back tomorrow if you have got powers like spiderman.
BTW, one firang pushed me in a huddle and avoided a spider attack.

Else, take care. One cousin died when possibly attacked by a spider when he was 8 or so.

I am happy for you. Once you become Spiderman, need you to run a few errands.

That is what my pita ji told long back when he was teaching me to ride a scooter.
Apparently, one of his colleagues while trying to avoid a dig hit something else and died.

When I was in Dirty ka gaon, one secretary turned cyber muqqaddam’s brother died when hit by a car from side. Later on cane to know he was avoiding a cat. He left behind his pregnant wife :sad:

I once hit brakes to avoid hitting a deer, but didn't slam hard and I had seen the deer in the distance so knew it was coming.

I've had a friend ruin his mustang in Parsippany, NJ once when a huge dear like more than 100 lbs hit him in the dark.. I think you have some whistling device you can attach to the car to deter the deer from running across the road.. but it's not a guaranteed fix.
