Cool

Okay, living out in the country can be kind of strange at times. But it's good for one thing: no cops. Anyway... a couple months ago, my dad decided he wanted to drive my car. We drove out to this road where there happens to be a farm, but it's like 3 miles long, and really good for drag racing. Here's my dad cruising along at about 80+..... all of a sudden I hear this really loud THUMP. I thought we had a blow out or something. I look over to see what the hell happened, and the mirror is gone. . My heart just about sunk at this point, and I am screaming at my dad to stop the car. I get out to inspect the damage, and the passenger side fender is basically ripped off and lying a quarter mile back. I'm walking back to find it. When I get to where the fender was, I see a fucking cow walking around like it's drunk, and my mirror all busted to hell on the ground. The damn farmer's cows got out, and we knocked one of them in the head. As i'm getting ready to start taking aggression out on the cow, some lady in a chevy van is flying towards the cow standing directly in the middle of the road. I try waving for her to stop, but she didn't see me. She keeps getting closer and closer... so I decide it would probably be a good idea to get out of the way. This lady just pile drives this damn cow. The cow lands directly in front of me. I look back at her van, and the whole front end is just compacted. If I learned anything from that experience, it is that having a huge ass barnyard animal launched at you is damn scary. The lady (who amazingly survived) got out of her van screaming her ass off. Even more amazingly, the cow gets up and stumbles around some more before finally hobbling off into the woods.

At this point, I don't feel nearly as bad, because at least my car's not totaled, but this lady is screwed. My dad gets out his cell phone and calls 911 and tells them to wake up the damn farmer. Like 30-40 mins later, the farmer and the cops pull up and walk up with a look on their face like . The farmer apologized, and his insurance ended up getting me a new paintjob, mirror, fender, etc. Anything his cow broke, his insurance fixed. That saved me a lot of money, because I planned on getting a new paintjob anyway. . It turned out so awesome, you'd never know it wasn't painted by BMW.

Holy cow (sorry, it had to be done)! How in the hell did that lady manage not to notice a cow and a man standing in the middle of the road? WTF? Sure, neither you nor the cow shoulda been just standing around, but doesn't the incident say something about the driver? She didn't brake, swerve or anything, right?

In my world, karma would have had her accidentally plowed over by yet another reckless Chevy driver as she carelessly stood in the road to file the police report.

I'm still wondering whether the cow survived or not, lol.

Thanks for the offer, bitcore. Just got a gmail account yesterday though. There's a bunch of people on TotalFark (Fark.com's subscriber service) is great for that kind of stuff. Everyone's giving out invites.


Clubin, it was like 11:00 at night. My little BMW flashlight in the glovebox actually came in handy.
