Force/Mass Equation lesson

Good mornin :)

last night I had the misfortune of being tutored in Force*Mass equations. the specific equation is S*bt=nc! Translation.. Semi * Box truck = No Contest...

while pulled into a truck stop for the night, I had the misfortune to be 'grazed' by the back wheels of an 18 wheeler.. My whole truck rocked, things were falling off the shelves... He didnt even notice :)

I climbed out of bed and went to talk to him when he got the rig parked, then together we looked at the damage, luckily, it's cosmetic, and everything still works the way it's supposed to.

He was very sorry about it, and offered to buy me dinner or a drink somewhere, I just asked him to keep us little guys in mind and accepted his apology.. no harm no foul :)

but I didnt sleep well the rest of the night waiting for the next thump!!

that might have been my last truck stop night.

Hi Steve, Sorry to hear of your bump in the night.
I will take it to heart as I often prefer truck stops over Walmarts, etc. Really have to watch where I park....fortunately my rig is car size so I can park with cars where less danger of big rigs...everyone is pretty tired when they roll in.

well, I know better now.. ignore the lines on the lot for their suggested parking areas.. and go where I feel safe even if that means I take up a couple spaces :)
