just thought of this and maybe their is some humor in it for you guys and gals. back in the 70/s i was going around 90 in my little ford and got pulled over. it was between bismark and minot n.dak. their was a heavy ticket coming. i even admitted how fast i was going. when the officer got out his book to write me the ticket at that same moment his car started on fire. fire and smoke was pouring out from under the hood of it. he looked at me and said, dont ever do that again and run back to his car and headed for town that was about 2 miles south of their. smoke and fire pouring out from under the hood as he was driving away. i just stood their and then continued on my way at a better speed. the second incident i took a trip to wyoming from nebraska. as i went through a town over their i was going too fast and got pulled over. this guy was mean looking and enjoying getting his book out to write me a big ticket. just as he got his book out and put the pen to it we both heard a very loud crash. behind me about a block their was a bad auto accident. again he looked at me and said dont do that again i have to go. from then on i drove a little slower. now i drive like a slow old man. has anybody else had weird things like that happen to them? i didnt need a third incident to get my attention, 2 was enough.
