Truck Conspiracy

Driving home late last night, I noticed all the 18-wheelers on the road. You know the time of night, when all the trucks come out from their hiding places and take over the road, boxing you in and barrelling down the (illegal) fast lane with ungodly momentum?

Which reminded me of my theory. Please note: I'm not actually a conspiracy theory. I read up on it for the same reason I read up on urban legends and folklore, it's simply fascinating what people believe and why.

But where do all those trucks come from, in the middle of the night? What are tehy all carrying? WHere are they coming from, and where are they going to? And the crux of the matter: with all these trucks travelling silently under the cover of darkness every night, how is it possible that anyone could even check the majority of their contents?

It's creepy and scary!

OK, had to get that one off my chest. Happy belated Hannukah, everyone.
