Pershing123: I ran across this one the other day, i was laughing and crying listening to it.

That poor girl.  You could hear her voice go from calm to terrified in half a second.

It wasn't a tire from the sky but it bounced out of the bed of a pickup truck in front of me at 60 mph on a busy freeway.  It hit the road and took off rolling in front of me.  It sure was a "hit your brakes and slow down" moment.  It bounced down the left hand lane until it hit the concrete median and fell over.  That damn thing could have killed someone all because some asshole didn't secure his load.

Sin_City_Superhero: The tire was not very big, but its landing surprised people in the Jefferson Park neighborhood near the airport.

Who the hell isn't prepared, at all times, for a surprise airplane tire?

I sh*t you the f*ck not. Every once in a while I look up all worried some sh*t from a plane is going to fall out of the sky and  kill me. I live close to a small airport with a seemingly endless supply of biplanes and other sh*t up circling for no f*cking reason.

When I was a kid we were head on a trip up to San Francisco pulling a travel trailer, My dad said last break for a bathroom break for another 40 minutes, last minute I said yes.  He pulled off and going don the off ramp a tire shot past went across the street and hit a pole at the gas station, wobbled around like a tire does and finally laid flat.  It wasn't until we pulled into the gas station we found out it was ours.  The trailer had 4 tires so it was still holding up.  My dad just said, "I am glad you had to pee"!

Article headline says the tire landed at O'Hare, and the first sentence says it landed between two houses. MAKE UP YOUR MIND.

...or get better writers
