There are lots of fake stories like this. Its part of the effort to
eliminate individual rights for the greater good of society. Look
behind the organizations that are wailing about "frivolous" lawsuits
and there is almost always a corporation that wants to engage in
activities that most would view as criminal and do it without
Fake my butt. A few years ago here in the Kansas City area a
little punk was trying to break into a school and fell through the
skylight that he pried open over the gymnasium and fell onto the
floor. They sued and won. Was in the KC Star paper so we assume
it to be true although you can only believe 1/2 of their stories.
In the paper this morning the police are trying to stop 2 vicious
gangs from shooting each other. Shouldn't we be supplying them
with bullets instead?
three words BIG ASS BOULDERS. I have some from when I dug my cellar hole.
They are about the size of full sized pick up trucks. You can have them for
free. You might want to call an excavation company and tell them you want
some big boulders. They migh give them to you for free????? and even for a
small fee they migh bring the excavator over to line them up for you. They
would look better then any stupid chinzy barricade that you make. If they
get hit by an SUV some how the boulders will surley survive... concrete and
bricks will crack... boulders bite back.
The guy is concerned because his nice lawn is getting chewed up. The
nice lawn is there because he like the way it looks. Do you think
that those BIG ASS BOULDERS would make the lawn look nicer? If he
didn't care what it llloked like he wouldn't care about the lawn.
I think I screwed up the thread, but I'm afraid my last attempt can't
be read, so here goes again:
Hey, Thanks for the great ideas! 6" pipe buried 3-4' below grade and
filled with concrete to protect the wall might just work.
Next problem is that I don't have room for a curb or boulders in
of the wall, and maybe even the 6" pipes. There's also a gate to be
concerned about in the center of the end of the street, between two
parts of the wall. I'm also afraid that wrought iron might get
dented. The vehicles aren't driving fast, just backing up and given
the close tolerances and poor visibility, they hit the wall or the
But, I don't want to recess the wall-gate combination back further
into the property because as it is, the driveway makes a sharp left
toward the garage. So, it sits on the edge of the public street.
If I could embedd the 6" pipes into the wall somehow, that would be
better for space considerations, and for looks.
