Kamikaze squirrel gets revenge on Ald. Brookins

Don't mess with the squirrels!

That was the nasty but unambiguous message sent to Ald. Howard Brookins, 21st, by Chicago's rodent community just weeks after he gave a fiery City Council speech decrying the menace of "aggressive squirrels."

Out cycling on the Cal-Sag Trail on Nov. 13, Brookins was jumped by a kamikaze squirrel that leapt into the front wheel of his bike and lodged himself in the spokes, sending the alderman flying over the handlebars.
Well, it's funny up to the point where the guy needed surgery on his skull.

Quote:
The attack cost the squirrel its life and left Brookins needing surgery and other treatment for a broken nose, a fractured skull and five or six teeth that were knocked out in the accident.

But Brookins, who got out of hospital Thursday and posted a photo of his mangled bike with the squirrel trapped in the wheel, can see the funny side.

"I can think of no other reason for this squirrel's actions than that it was like a suicide bomber, getting revenge," he said Monday as he began what his doctors have told him will be a months-long recovery, including further surgeries.
but other than that...

I was driving a HS senior from my church this past weekend, and I was backing out of a parking spot. I was using my mirrors instead of the backup camera. Him: "you don't use the camera, you use your mirrors?"

Millennials, amirite?

Don't you need to look anyway or do the cameras have no blind spot?
