Nice headline.

'Everything's fine, dog. I'll be right here, dog.'

if you've just driven through someone's house, i don't think the best thing to call them is "dog", especially if the dog has a gun pointed at you.

When I was a kid, my house got hit by a car, right in the bathroom. I made a joke about my sister, who at that time, "lived" in the bathroom, and would have died in the bathroom but for not being there when the car hit. Got in trouble for that joke.

For years, I could never mow that part of the yard without hitting some errant piece of house or cinderblock retaining wall.

It was a late 50's Caddy, in the late 70's. Damn shame.

The driver was a teenage girl, she lost control of the car, and hit the house. The car was trashed, the girl was okay.

Nobody got hurt. The whole thing is a memory made fond because there was nothing to make it a bad memory. Just an interesting side trip.

I swear the house jumped out right in front of me, honest dog.
 
2003-05-09 02:37:29 AM  
I've actually seen an accident like this occur...and let me tell you...

It's pretty damned hysterical.

I think I saw this on Family Matters once.

Not that I watched that show...

That's a whole lot of steel. I'm suprised it stopped at the bathroom. ;)

Totalling a white Chevy: $28,000
Totalling a white Chevy by driving it through three rooms of a house: $350,000
Having homeowner pull a gun on your dumb ass: Priceless.

Yeah, I would have shot him for calling me "dog"

What he neglected to mention is that the bathroom was in the center of the house. :^P

Some guy got all hopped up and drove into a blockbuster a few months ago.

Another tried to commit suicide by going 80 into a power pole beside a gas station -

they were all fine.

/mindless side trip

The driver "failed to notice" the road ended...?

He also failed to notice the front of the house, the living room, the hallway, the bedroom door, etc...

'Everything's fine, dog. I'll be right here, dog.'

Ha ha... That is a great quote.

If this is the fifth or sixth car that has ended up in your house, wouldn't you have a gun nearby?

A thick guardrail out front oughta do the trick

Maby a stoop?

Installing a traffic light at the intersection, police and neighbors said, has helped somewhat.

Couldn't they install some reflectors instead??

Not neccessarily. A house on the corner by me got hit by cars twice. They put a guard rail up. A long while later, a car started to swerve before the guard rail and careened through his yard and into his house. This happened again a couple of years later. I guess at least the driver can tear up his yard too while he's at it.

A moat, then. Just think of it, in addition to being uncrossable if constructed properly, you could have a drawbridge and all kinds of neat stuff.

"... and the dragon comes in the niiiiiiiiiiiiiiight!!"

Just build a fence at the edge of the yard. Use 4-inch metal pipe for the posts. Plant the posts several feet into the ground, using concrete both to fill the inside of the pipe, and also around the outside of pipes to widen the base and make sure the cars don't uproot the pipe. Putting them a couple feet apart should be sufficient.
 
2003-05-09 02:57:44 AM  
I would landmine my front yard...at least then you know when a car has driven into your front garden...oh and if you use enough explosives it won't reach the wall of your house, plus dogs taking dumps in yout garden are history.

Or you can screw the house and just move into a van down by the river.
 
2003-05-09 03:01:11 AM  
What they fail to mention is that the guy painted dotted white lines on his driveway and a picture of a tunnel on the front of his house.

Thing #1: it reveals that you must not get laid, ever, because I would be worried what all that jostling might cause...

Neapoi, blockbuster.... missouri?

My mom was standing about five feet away from the crater when it happened :-p Got a few thousand bucks for her troubles, and some free rentals.

*thanks god that his mom didn't die because she stopped to rent me a movie*

"It's probably the fifth or sixth car that's ended up in that house," Speedway Police Chief Jeff Dine said, since he joined the force in 1977.

Im sure the guy wondered why the house was so cheap.

Welcome to Anytown, USA...
 
2003-05-09 03:12:46 AM  
Is it actually legal in America to store your weapon in such a way though?
 
2003-05-09 03:13:18 AM  
and by the way- there is no gun under my mattress, or anywhere else in my house.

Legal, yes (provided you are registered to even have a gun). Smart, um no.

AFAIK, Cola for simple handguns there aren't any regulations or laws that govern how it is to be stored inside your own home.

Wow - I wonder how many blockbusters this has happend too? I live in Walla Walla Washington.

My mother, however, was not inside the store - I was, however, across the street - laughing and wishing I had a camera.

/yes, I know I'm weird

Out of reach of children is the only one that comes to my mind.

Frankly, one is too many.

Is that really a law, though? I mean, no way to enforce that aside from after the fact.

I think there are some places where they expect you to have it locked up, or use a trigger lock, but such a gun is not very useful. In my state, I don't think there would be any restrictions against keeping a firearm under the matress. But I wouldn't keep one there anyway, just because I don't think it's very accessible. Kinda hard to reach under the mattress when you're laying on it. Much easier to open a drawer in a nightstand.

Don't need a registration to own, only a permit to carry concealed. But then, I don't live in a police state, either.

Good point, but I think it is a law. I remember hearing a case of a kid getting a hold of his uncle's .9mm and taking it to school. He just wanted to show it off to his friends. He, of course, was caught with it and the Uncle was jailed.
