    Don’t they know cars have headlights so drivers can see road markings?

    Spanish-language Ripley’s says that the bus dumped 363 LITERS of sewage. The math would be correct if they were converting to kilograms, but they used the wrong unit.

    I can find no mention of any compensation received by the victims in the tour boat

    A little misleading entry. The bus driver PURPOSELY dumped the crap into the river. The only accident was that it landed on a tour boat.

    Glow in the dark lane markings? They have existed in Canada for many, many years. Not sure about the USA.Also why did the Dave Matthews Band have 800 LBS of sewage on their bus?

    The bus driver’s only comment was, “Opps! Did I do that?”

    Does that mean the Dave Matthews bus was intentionally trying to dump sewage in the river?

    And all of the books that were picked out of the garbage by the Turkish refuse collectors were “The Joys of Socialism”

    Are they good books, or just paper trash?

    I suppose there must be SOME good books in there.

    800 pounds of sewage and the Dave Matthews Band kind of complement each other.

    GREAT idea by the Garbagemen to save all those books. And an even Better idea for the glow-in-the-dark highway markings; those would be Invaluable, on foggy nights especially. That should become a world-wide standard.

    I’m disappointed in the Turks for throwing away 6,000 serviceable books.

    The item on the Turkish library was posted on Facebook about two weeks ago.

    800 pounds of sewage, might have been the band’s play list

    So, not to change the subject, but what’s special about glow-in-the-dark paint on the roads? U.S. uses reflective lines…isn’t that pretty much the same?

    And it would appear the library has very strict dress code!

    I remember the Dave Matthew Band incident. Caused a big stink in the media and their “stock” went down in value a bit as a band.

    The passengers on that tour boat got a complimentary souvenir of Chicago. Baggies will cost extra. ;-p
