I'm no arborist but I imagine it's a competition that involves throwing trees a distance.

Not sure disability insurance fraud is the right one for someone who enjoys hurling trees recreationally. Maybe arson aligns better with her hobbies.

Sure would be nice if our legal system worried about “justice” instead of activism. Half the people on this fine board wouldn’t be worried about their ridiculous rate increases with their insurance policies. The only thing I would add would be some kind of penalty (jail or monetary) for bringing a frivolous lawsuit before the court. There must be repercussions. Don’t get me wrong…frick the insurance agencies, but also frick every ambulance chasing attorney and the pieces of shite they represent.

This reminds me of the couples who are both on disability in the US. Who knew disability was so contagious?

There aren't enough dwarves to throw, so they're apparently still on the Christmas tree standard.

I don't throw the Christmas tree until after the whisky comes out, but I probably wouldn't win based on accuracy.

I love how people love to film every aspect of their lives and post it online. Should make it easy for insurance companies to deny claims.

Yeah, and it isn’t so much for distance as how hard it slams against the floor “if your mother says one more GD thing about… anything, you ignorant country music lover!” Disclaimer: this is purely fictional.

ETA: wow I just realized I pasted the wrong thing. Hahaha. Perils of posting early before coffee kicks in.

In the US she still would have gotten the money…..some a-hole leftist judge would have seen to it.
