Public Service Announcement

From Jeff Kramer of Syracuse.com:
One fascinating tidbit I learned is that a surprising number of motorists cut in front of [concrete] mixer trucks, often while texting or talking on the phone. Do not do this! Ernie Davis spent less time playing for [Syracuse University] than it takes for a loaded mixer traveling 55 miles per hour to come to a complete stop. Also, if you're an animal-lover whose instinct is to slam on the brakes to avoid hitting a squirrel, keep this in mind: In a panic stop, front-loading-style mixers automatically spit out one to two yards of concrete. At 4,000 pounds per yard, that's easily enough to crush you, your car and your cuddly squirrel friend. The message should be clear to all: Squirrels hate us.

Skwerls are terizts. They can -- and will -- use any means at their disposal, even our gullibility and a cement mixer, to dispatch their enemy: humankind. Hey, it's possible. Watch your back, folks.

You're welcome.
