Thumbs down Turtle Shells aren't only dangerous in Mario Cart...FML

I stop at least once a week in traffic with my hazards and load turtles into my truck and relocate them when I find them in traffic, literally all the time. Today I'm driving home and didn't see a dead one in the lane as I was changing into the right lane and BAM hit it and get this nice wedge in my tire. The only comfort in this ordeal is that is happened outside a shell station

Re: Turtle Shells aren't only dangerous in Mario Cart...FML

If there's any good way to look at this, it looks like that tire has less than 3/32nds of tread left. Also, with the rainy season about to be here, I'd say you were do for a new set of tires anyways.

I feel your pain though. In my previous vehicle, I got taken out by one of those little 2"x2" road reflectors that are used to show you where your lain boundaries are at night. Ever since, I try to weave through them... even though it was probably a loose piece that got me.

Re: Turtle Shells aren't only dangerous in Mario Cart...FML

Noooooo!! You killed Leonardo!!!! Master Shreader will see to it you pay with your life! LOL J/K but glad you're ok. Unfortunately I ran over 2 birds last week. I'm doing about 70 on the HWY and they were walking across the road. I thought it was just paper in the Street but last min I saw it was 2 birds and I was left to run them over. If I swerved out the way I could have hit another car or caused an accident. I'm sorry to have to have killed them but I had no choice.

Fun fact of the day: Keratin (turtle shell, human fingernails, hair) is very similar in strength/weight and density to copper!
