Guy was day dreaming about the millions he's going to make cutting grass, or on his cell bragging to his friends about his new found fortune

After I hit send I rembered my worked saw a flying mower. A larger company had a crew cutting across the street from him and I was up the street in a cup de sac. Anyway they left in a hurry, their 21 flew right over the edge in to a lawn. Last week they lost a back pack blower

I have heard of throwing that cheap piece of junk in the garbage but this takes it to a whole new level.

That was a perfectly executed jump with trailer in tow. Glad the guy is going to be OK.

He needed just a little more speed! Glad to hear the driver didn't die in what was a very ugly one vehicle wreck.

Guy supposedly had some type of medical condition, glad he survived. Kind of feel for the person.

what the freak? why was he in the median to begin with? why didn't he hit the brakes and stop before he went flying?

it looks like he just floored it and said " yeeeeeehaaaaaaa!!!!!"
