Baileyjack is on a distinguished road
Default Black Boxes installed in 4x4'*

The National Transportation Safety Board recently devulged they had covertly funded a project with the US automakers for the past 5 years, where by the auto makers were installing Black Boxes in four wheel drive pick up trucks in an effort to determine, in fatal accidents, the circumstances in the last 15 seconds before the crash.
They were surprised to find in 45 of 50 states the last words of drivers in 62.1 % of fatal crashes were "OH ****!" Only the states of Oklahoma, Missouri, Arkansas, Alabama, Texas, and New Mexico were different, where 89.3 % of the final words were "Hold my beer and watch this".......

Hope i didn't offend anyone..

You have to put your beer down to whoop somebody? I guess thats the main difference between a Texan and an Okie.

I think the main difference between a Texan and an Okie is that we think before we act.
