Highway living

There's one benefit that comes from living 100 feet from the highway: you can listen to truckers on your computer speakers. I'm serious. I don't know why, but the E-machine speakers I have hooked up to my laptop regularly begin broadcasting snippets of CB conversations. Atleast that's what it sounds like; guys talking to each other in the vivid trucker patois I usually associate with movies like "Convoy".
