Speaking of fucked up things, who the hell sound checked those mics?
Is that a lake bed you camped in? Were you worried about some idiot plowing into you at night?
No one gives a fuck about my fantasy team, but the fact that I drafted him in the 14th round of a keeper league is like a soothing balm in these troubled times.
Are they fucking serious with that Kid Pix rendering?
This is a ridiculous argument. First of all, the reporter says in his piece that there was at least 20 feet of space behind the shuttle, so the notion that it was “boxed in” is a bold-faced lie. If it is actually capable of reversing, then the technology failed. Plain and simple. Are we not supposed to expect that…
Before I scrolled down and saw the related links, the first thing I thought was “Well, at least he’ll make a good guy to remember in 20 years.”
Nice pics, what were you shooting on?
We had a really big front yard when I was a kid, and if I was playing near the bottom of the driveway when he came home from work he would slow down so I could jump on the running boards and hang on for the ride up the driveway (about a tenth of a mile).
To teach me a lesson about leaving my car unlocked. It worked.
My mom stole my unlocked car out of my high school parking lot to teach me a lesson. 10 years later I still lock it up every damn time.
I like your last line, but the double use of the word “high” almost ruined it. 7/10. Nowhere did I say that America is a less-violent place than Europe.

Just because a statement doesn’t explicitly acknowledge the universality of violence in sports…
I missed the part where I said that American fans aren’t capable of violence or that this phenomenon is exclusive to European soccer, can you point that out to me?
I’m a yankee lib who just happens to appreciate the first amendment, but nice try :)
First of all, we’re talking about fan-on-player violence here. And I’ve sat in the bleachers at Yankee stadium decked out in all my Red Sox gear. You just get harmless shouts. Bryan Stow is a tragic but exceedingly rare case.
Like not caring about soccer! :)
No one better bump you off 51 stars now...
Didn’t say my opinion mattered, but I have a right to voice it. One of the greatest things about this country, aside from the fact that no one cares about soccer.
That’s a really poor comparison. That fight led to systemic changes at almost every level to prevent something like that from happening again - and what do you know, no fan-player violence since. Meanwhile asshole soccer fans set off smoke bombs and flares and actually attack opposing fans and players on the regular,…
