It could be that the purpose of your life is only to serve as a warning to others.

.. speaking to insurance adjuster.

Yes it IS an autonomous pilot vehicle, but I don't think making a comment about wanting a 'cool drink on the rocks' puts me at​ fault!?

Jim just can't find his 'thing' in life.... prior to being the lead driver in the lead vehicle for over size loads.

He was the Captain of the National Jet Ski Drill Team... Here's one of the last picture of Jim as Captain.

I do see a water theme here though... Jim should look into that.

Hillary's campaign strategist?

note: I really miss having "Caption This" in the Daily Digest every week. It had so much more participation.

21. Suburban women
22. Racism/Xenophobia
23. "Anti-American forces"
24. Bad polling
25. Low-information voters
26. Content farms in Macedonia
