Hotsy

You know the meme...

If there is someone on your friends list you would like to take, strip naked, tie to a bed post, lick until (s)he screams, then f*ck until both of you are senseless and unable to f*ck anymore, then wait about five minutes and do it all over again, and that someone is me, then DAMMIT, LET ME KNOW! ;)

Drivin' a truck with my high heels on....

I don't understand why so many companies transport goods by truck. Wouldn't it be cheaper to ship freight by train? Especially for long-haul? Why pay a truck driver to pull a load across the country when you could just load a cargo container onto a train? A single train, with just a few engineers, can pull thousands of trucks worth of goods, trucks which would require thousands of drivers, spew tons of pollution into the atmosphere, and take up space on the already conjested highways.

Is it a conspiracy by the oil companies? Is it because America is so car-centric? Has the American rail system deteriorated that badly?
