So work is done and my weekend is here so how do I feel like celebrating? By firing up the computer to watch some Black Friday Fight videos!

I mean seriously where else, other than the running of the bulls in Spain, can one watch idiots subject themselves to the type of trampling injuries one usually associates with panicked crowds and not feel guilty about it? If these people want to camp out in the cold for hours for the priviledge of  being beaten, trampled, tased, punched, stabbed, shot, indebted and otherwise compromised then the least I can do is dress up in a toga and be entertained by their suffering.

What?  I look good in a toga and you know the Romans would be LOVING this. ;-)

If you start taking a medication because Kim Kardashian said she takes it in an ad you saw on social media then its official.

You're an idiot.

I just watched the Tony Stewart race car crash where he ran over the driver and to be honest I would be very surprised if there are any criminal charges resulting from this. Now I don't know if he did put the guy's car into the wall during the race, but I do know after watching the video the guy walked halfway across the track to confront him while the cars were still going. Considering the first car had to swerve to miss him I have to call this a Darwin.

Now don't get me wrong. I feel bad the guy lost his life but one has to learn to pick your spot to confront someone. During the race while cars are moving at high rates of speed is not the time to do that, as he unfortunately found out.

It's actually not very funny at all but the images of Montreal streets being turned into a raging whitewater river are definitely impressive. I'm glad nobody appears to have been killed but the property damage bill from that is going to be something else. All that water freezing in the street and in basements...

I definitely would not want to be the construction company that cut that water main though.

Anyway you cut it this is one epic Darwin Award attempt.

Two fractured neck bones, amnesia and a car that's had it's roof torn off like a sardine can.

Most people would call that a horrific day, but if that's all she got after a head on collision with a moose she's lucky. It looks from the picture like the animal's carcass hit the windshield and bounced upward, tearing the roof off. That's awesome. Sometimes they just go through the windshield and kill the occupants of the car.

Click here for photos of the car, and the story:

Seriously, I could find  a few good uses for half a million bucks. :-p  That said my favourite part is where the police tell him to have it checked for tracking devices and then to ditch it to keep from being killed by any drug dealers looking for their Columbian Bam-Bam. Wouldn't you be hoping the car had a tracking device so you could park it somewhere, stake it out, arrest the dealers, flip them, and potentially take out a large coke smuggling operation, all with a bare minimum of man power?

Good to see such victories in the War on Drugs. I feel safer already. :-p

Frankly I think it's the later:




Don't get me wrong. I happen to believe that there most likely is other intelligent life in the universe. I just don't believe it's taking off in flaming paper bags one street over. :-)

Well, I have to admit that I was wrong with the Riot Nookie photo. It wasn't actually two crazies getting it on while people went on a destruction spree. It was actually a guy comforting his girlfriend after they got roughed up during a fight between rioters and riot police.

I do apologize for posting that in the context I did. I've seen some crazy people do some crazy things, so two people making out in the road while a city burns isn't really that much of a stretch for my imagination, at least anymore than idiots deciding to riot after a hockey game for whatever reason. Unfortunately I forgot a cardinal rule of posting things: Check the facts, first. I didn't do that, and as a result I engaged in some bad blogging.

I'm going to leave that post as is though, mainly as a reminder to me of how easy it is to get things wrong. Sometimes having a record of a mistake is a good thing.

Take care all.
