יש לחקור

Why is "Truckin" always written chaser?

I would sugggest, lifi anyius daati, that the vort is similar to the "machatzis hashekel" vort, i.e. even though we are continually making progress, we are never "there." Progress not perfection.

This mehalech is al pi poshut p'shat, but I am sure others here have deep thoughts on this sugya...

I think that the whole sheilah needs to start before that, for very rarely is there the whole line on the forum, it is mostly in Roshei Teivos, therefore we have to see what the roshei teivos really stand for and then we can ask.

וז"ל "והנה צריך עיון בגירסת הראשונים, דלכאורה היה נראה דהמילה הוא "טראקינג" ואם הם היו כותבים בסלענג אז היו צריכים לכתוב טראקינ ב"נ" רגיל אבל כתבו ב"ן" ארוך. ולכן נראה שהגירסא בתוך הכת"י היה בראשי תיבות קא"ט, והמוציא לאור היה יודע שלא יבינו בנ"א לשונם הקדוש ולכן כתב המילים בפירוש, אבל לא היה מכיר הלשון היטיב והיה רק שומע מאנשים טובים, ולו היה נשמע כאילו אומרים טראקין בלי ה"ג" ולכן כתב כן.

היוצא לנו להלכה שכשכותבים קי(י)פ אן טראקינג, יש לכותבו עם הג' בסוף, אלא להוציא כל הדעות יפה לכותבו בר"ת וכמו שעשו הקדמונים שמפיהם אנו חיים, ואם אחד שואל מה פירושו יש לכותבו עם ה"ג" אבל בדיעבד יצא אף אם כותבו רק עם סימן כזה ' בסוף" עכ"ל

That's really not so pashut. If there is no gimmel and you put one there, you won't be yotzei l'chol hasheetos*.Aderabbah you might be oiver bal tosef.

It's not a problem though.Because I don't care what lav it is, I don't do it for other reasons.

the Early Commentators speak about a similar scenario, albeit with more and larger doses of crazy

Tisha Bav is the gid hanasheh in the dimension of time (ayen Meor Einayim parshas Vayishlach). That is where Esav and his people grab onto us, at the hip. Tes is the 9th, which is yesod.
so if you would have the gimmel in there it would throw off the whole cheshbon. וק"ל
if you have any questions ask inna

Gimmel plus tes = 13

Yud gimmel middos.

only because of hashem's constant mercy are we still here.

If we fell then middas hadin demands us to be destroyed.

Because of hashem's middas harachamim we're still around.

Keep on trucking (N"a trukin') is only possible because of middas harachmim.

If we keep trukin' esav will never be able to grab our hips again.

I hope that this clears zemmy's vort up.
