Was in so much shock and pain from everything, that he drove to the emergency room thinking he has been shot. Got to the ER, and all they could do was take an X-ray and send him home with a bunch of pain killers, even though his arm was obviously not straight. Got the text from him this morning and he's on his way back to the hospital right now.


So class is not canceled?

Well, it's a class I get to work on combat robot stuff, so I hope it isn't cancelled. This teacher is also one of the key people in building this combat robot and a good friend. That's the only reason I get a text message from him at 9:30 on a friday morning when the accident happened last night at like 9:30.

That's an odd story. I wonder if he could sue the city for not keeping the public roads safe.

Well, it's probably going to be more directed at whatever person was throwing the stuff. Apparently there was another person at the same hospital that had the same thing happen to them, but no injuries, just material thrown at their car at freeway speeds.

I was wondering that myself. Sounds like a pretty big liability for a hospital release somebody without treating them for serious injuries when they go to the ER.

People have been saying the corvette will have a 6 cylinder since the old sting ray concept of the 90's. GM might be a big company but they know how hard of a sell a V-6 would be in a corvette. I could believe them maybe making the engine smaller in displacement, but staying with a pushrod V8.

Lighter, cheaper, better gas mileage, and same power. I think enough people would buy a turbo V6, and the faster more expensive models would still have a V8.
