Back when I was into metal detecting (still am just don't have any time) I hated that we called it can slaw!!! It would make the detectors go crazy.

That yard looks like crap. sell them on over seeding.

(get a time machine first, work that into the price of the over seeding)

Ah I didn't pull back on the sticks like I guess he expected & end of RC truck!

I was kind of surprised it didn't just knock it out of the way, but it must have caught just right, because it got reduced to bug dust after that. Either way it happened so fast even if I had tried to stop I'd have still nailed it, hope the fuel in it didn't affect the lawn too bad. Wonder what he told his parents happened to his "toy"?! He just stood there looking stupid after it was over & then was gone on my next pass.
Was probably dads toy

i'v been running over dog crap lately. i dont get everyones aversion to it. it does not splatter. i't doesn't make a big mess. i'm lucky if it even gets picked up. i usualy squish it under the wheel and it comes clean in a stripe or two.

Ran over my own cell phone. Fortunately, it was with the tires. Unfortunately, it was in a muddy ditch. Fortunately, I was able to hear it when my wife called me to ask me to bring home chocolate. Talk about good fortune.

I can tell you from experience, one of the worst things you can run over is your key chain. When I first got started I was mowing a yard and my keys slid right out of my pocket, and ran them right over... Luckily I had a spare key under the truck, if not I would have been screwed!
