Weaving around traffic, this biker was taking it for granted that all the cars he was passing would just stay in their lanes. Of course, that’s not how driving works. Fortunately for him he didn’t die as he learned this lesson.
And not only did he not die, he was accidentally really awesome…
When a police cruiser t-boned her little Toyota in February of 2013, Tanya Weyker broke her neck in four places and required surgery to fuse her vertebrae. As it turned out, her physical injuries would be among the least of her concerns.
Seeing her red eyes after the accident, the police ignored that this might be because she was crying, having just broken her neck. Instead, they arrested her for driving while intoxicated, though they were unable to perform a field sobriety test due to her injuries. Toxicology reports quickly proved Weyker was stone cold sober, but it took ten months before the Milwaukee County prosecutor officially declined to press charges against her.
For anyone who is concerned about the squirrel, he still raids our other two feeders and the vegetable garden. The tiny amount of Vaseline used is non-toxic, the kind used for lip balm. He quickly learned that this feeder was not worth the trouble, so we have not put more on the pole, and the birds are delighted to actually get some of the bird seed.
