TV Makeover Pilot especially for Truckers

All of your programs appear to be UK-oriented topics geared towards a UK audience, can you clarify why you aren't seeking UK truck drivers?

What are your personal positives and negatives regarding jockeying a rig for a living?

14. speed traps and corrupt law enforcement in hick towns

This one shouldn't be on here because it is easily avoided. The JJ Keller manual outlines a four-step process for the driver to follow if Ol'Smokey's got them ears on:

1. Dodge 'em.

2. Duck 'em.

3. Keep the diesel truckin'.

4. Put that hammer down and give it hell.

* Perform the steps in reverse order if west bound.

Snow - how to drive in it

A higher gear sends less power to the wheels, reducing the chance of breaking traction.

Should it be kept in a higher gear than normal for the whole drive then, or only when starting? How do grades fit in?

I really really really hate team driving

Zach,

If it didn't work out at Western it won't work out SWIFT

You're telling yourself that, but you don't know it. My guess is you're telling yourself this to protect yourself from bad experiences and bad feelings. You're going to have bad experiences and bad feelings no matter what you do in life. You already know you already can do a lot of what the job requires you to do. The most important stuff. And you already know the things it requires that you're struggling with. You're obviously not messed up enough as a person to not be able to learn more than you've already learned. You're just struggling like everyone else. You just gotta dig deeper if you want this, and obviously you've got deeper. Anyways I'd say the odds are very likely a different DM is going to be at least 10% more decent to work with, right?

Anyone else stuck in Wyoming?

So it's okay to use the low jake brakes in the snow on grades? I'd understood there'd be problems with traction in rain and snow and ice, is there another piece of the puzzle to how it works?

Got fired from Western Express

Hey Zach, how much you want something + how motivated you are to pursue it x how open you are to challenging yourself to grow beyond your previous limitations = if it's for you.

Mental Health Disqualifiers

When Rick said "sorry, couldn't help myself", he was probably speaking for the way his mind picked up on how the word came up twice like that with such different meanings. The mind invariably does that kind of thing and it's common to feel compelled to share that kind of observation while excusing oneself for it, "if you'll pardon the pun, etc." In this instance it touched on a sensitive issue, but it seems clear he wasn't trying to be snide or that he was aware of how it may be received but went ahead and did it anyway.

Co-DRIVER needed for a TEAM out of AZ (Seeking a “needle in a haystack” here at the T.T. “magnet”)

Are you looking for a co-driver in the sense of being in a relationship with them as well, like how it is with husband/wife teams, or just a colleague that you happen to work with?

Trucking Truth On A New Server

But this time an interesting glitch appeared instead-- rather than my comment appearing in Preview, I was honored to see Rob T's recent hefty thread-starter post on "Slip-Seating" in MY Preview window.

This is what I mentioned earlier. I couldn't get it to do it again despite trying multiple times in different threads. Possibly it only happens depending on the timing of when someone else posts or previews?

Trucking Truth On A New Server

A weird glitched happened earlier, although I haven't been able to reproduce it.

I'd left the tab open with the photo "Sending...." for a half hour or so, and when I came back I hit preview reply, to check if maybe it'd loaded the photo successfully, but just hadn't updated in my tab that it had.

In the preview section it showed a new post from Old School, from a thread I hadn't checked yet. Every time I try to hit preview now it just shows an empty box. Not sure how it managed that or if it's related to the photo issue, or if it'll ever happen again.

I've been trying to add a .jpeg that's only 44kb, and the green button stays stuck on "...sending", from an Android phone with Firefox as well as from my laptop. I also tried saving it as a .png and a .gif to see if the file type makes a difference, but they didn't work either.

I noticed it showed from the main index the last reply in a couple threads as being by "Blue Zombie Trucker", but inside the thread the display name actually reads "Cobalt Cyborg".

Friday Short Haul -- TCA's Fleet Safety awards, truck drivers' vaccine, Volvo electric semis

MRNA vaccines don't alter human DNA because human cells don't work like that. mRNA is produced in the nucleus of a cell. it leaves the nucleus and is read by the ribosome. the ribosome uses it as a set of instructions to make a protein.

the mRNA from the vaccines enter the cell and get read by the ribosome. the ribosome produces the protein that was originally from the virus. the immune system identifies it as foreign and produces antibodies against it.

the mRNA from the vaccines can't enter the nucleus. the nucleus uses export and import signals to determine what molecules can get in and can get out. there's no reason the mRNA from the vaccines would have nuclear import signals to get inside the nucleus. without getting inside the nucleus, there's no way it can change DNA. although even if it could get in, I'm not sure if or how it could do that (not a molecular biologist).

Considering the EU's position on GMO's - and the fact that this vaccine is potentially a DNA altering genetic construct - I'm surprised they just jumped on the bandwagon there.

There is no potential for a vaccine to alter human DNA.

Sure that'd be the end goal but I'm wondering how the end game is going to look like.

First they mandated everyone having to go to school and now vaccines. I'm wondering what the elites' end game is going to be.
