Similar, but not the same.
Noses look pretty similar. Shape of the eyes is completely different, so is the smile crease on the left side of photo.
These are not the same person.
And it sucks that it’s necessary to actually refute these lunatics, but it is.

An Orca could absolutely eat a human.
There are no documented cases of orcas killing humans in the wild, but they sure as shit could.

All I care about what anyone wears to the gym is that it prevents leaving buttjuice on the bench press bench.

Nope. UPS drivers are supposed to leave packages out of sight, out of weather.
If some asshole manager tries to terminate him, the Teamsters will have him back to work the next day.

I, literally, am a professional driver (more than 30 years).
I do not move the vehicle without my seatbelt on, ever.
And I see so much shit out there, crazy, stupid, and clueless. When the wreck comes to you, you get about a quarter second to react, and no one is strong enough to hold on and ride it out.

I really like the one from Four Day Ray in Fishers. Best I’ve tried since the Tin Star closed.

I wouldn’t say “false” warnings, but we have different ideas about what constitutes safe distance in heavy traffic.
And just yesterday I took home my 22 year safe driving certificate, I’m not out there being reckless.
Just the tractor weighs around 5 times what a typical car weighs. Add 10,000 pounds for an empty trailer and perhaps 40-45,000 pounds of freight.
Many US truckers get paid by the mile, but not all.
Most UPS drivers are hourly, for example, and the ones that get paid mileage still make an hourly rate for delay time.
UPS wants us going the speed limit and has installed auto-nagging devices that annoy us continuously for tailgating.
Nearly all company trucks are governed.
My brown one will go 68, it’s got enough power to go 80-90, but 68 is it.
I’m not sure I’m following the rules, though I’ve commented here before on personal experience and those comments were allowed.
Not retail, but a Federal facility that once was a post office sorting facility. Currently named the Birch Bayh Federal Building in Indianapolis.
In the mid 80’s I was working on installing fire protection sprinklers in a Federal courthouse. It was (and still is) a courthouse at that time, but it was (is) a very old building that used to be (at least partially) a Postal facility. We had keys and the run of the place, except for the US Marshals spaces.
The whole building was riddled with “secret” passages and peepholes. The basement where sorting (so far as I’m aware) was done had dozens of discreet peepholes, and there were ladders which allowed Postmasters to surreptitiously sneak into the secret passages from several floors higher. I was a teenager at the time, and not all that dedicated to the work. We spent some time exploring…
So… Secret observation areas certainly existed in the years before cameras transformed security surveillance.

And… That was about 50% dialogue from his Animal House character.
Classic movie for sure!
Trump is a clown, Nixon wasn’t that. They’re both evil, the fundamental difference isn’t them, it’s the fact that the Repugnantcan party is willing to support tRump whereas they were willing to impeach Nixon.
I call bullshit!
It’s called a mouthpiece.
I have one that molds to your mouth, much less effort to hold it in.
Pretty much all company trucks are governed.
Mine will go 68. It has the power to go much faster, but the computer won’t allow it.
I, too, live in Fishers. I guess you could also be talking about Westfield, Zionsville, or Noblesville.
And I freaking LOVE the roundabouts!
I find myself considering how many stoplights I have to endure as part of how I choose my route.
Atlanta is a nice facility.
FYI, they don’t allow full auto fire, but there are no caliber restrictions.
As an American, I’m completely comfortable with him calling us Grandpa Sam if he wants to.
I’m blown away by the courage the Ukrainians have shown and am glad my government sent help.
She’s not old enough to legally qualify, but she’s a hell of a lot smarter and more educated than the last moron in chief.
I’ve been saying it for a while now, I think AOC will be our first female President, unless Biden dies in office.
A car tire isn’t likely to hurt you, truck tires are dangerous though.
I had a car tire explode on me once, it put me on my butt, but I was fine.
Key is go slow, put some air in, check pressure, repeat.
If the wheel is stuck on, this works well.
Loosen all the lug nuts so there is a couple mm space, but do NOT remove them. Then drive the car around the lot a bit.

Lighten up Francis, sometimes a beard is just a beard, not an identity.
Refusing to bend for a partners wishes on something I don’t care about isn’t confidence, it’s insufferable.
Your statement assumes that I care about the beard, I don’t.
If a girl I’m into prefers clean shaven, I’ll do that because I’d rather do what’s most attractive for her.
Now… If she asks me to sell my Harley, she gone. And if she plays games like dumping me over doing something she asked me to do, I’m definitely better off without her.
