[/B]<HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P>Is it one of those jumps where the vehicle is obviously totaled, but in the next scene it's still going strong? The best example of this is in Terminator 2 when the Liquid Metal guy's semi jumps the wall and the wheels fly in all directions, but immediately after that he's still moving along smartly. And leave us not forget how many times basically the same thing happened to the General Lee.

You guys (OK, mostly just Bob) aren't going
to believe this-<P>last night, I stopped at J&F Cut Rate
Liquors, and they had PBR!<P>I got a 6 pack! It was really not very
good. I sure did enjoy it.<P>I think today's doodle turned out OK,
considering. I mean, it does suck
ass, like always, but still.<P>SoaR does not suck ass, you know.<P>

</B><HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P>Oh yeah, that's right! Often, too, it was an open-air jeep, with nobody wearing seatbelts or anything. It's blown 20 feet into the air by a mortar round, crashes to earth, and everyone emerges unscathed except for the need to clear their heads by shaking them and making that "yaddityyaddity" Hanna-Barbera noise. OK, maybe they didn't really make that noise, but I always provided it myself while watching at home.

It's pretty cool and if you're over 21 you get tickets for free beer (used to be 3 tickets but now it's 2).

Can't remember the name - but a couple

up there.<P>
There's Martino's - I get them everytime I go to Summerfest (which is approx. 6 out of the 11 days it runs) and there's another one that I can't remember. Martino's is excellent, though.
