"Somewhere a Village is Missing Twelve Idiots!" - Casey Anthony
I never lost a cent on the jobs I didn't get!
Frankie, no foul here. I just miss read your post I guess.
And yet, as savage and inappropriate the video is, nobody has a problem with televised violence via the UFC and it's imitators. I see little difference in the mentality that condones Roman Colosseum like spectacles of violence just because they are sanctioned by some self made organization of barbarians and their promoters.
This hasn't entered My world yet. Never will!
I can build anything You want , if you draw a picture of it , on the back of a big enough check .
I use to watch boxing all the time and then UFC, and one night after watching some guy get his head all busted up and blood all over the matt and both fighters, I realized it was just crazy. two guys beating the crap out of each other for a buck in their pocket and several bucks in the promoters pocket. Don't watch it any more.
The whole UFC thing is interesting, fighters are well conditioned, well trained and the referees are very watchful. Part of me finds it entertaining and very impressive until the blood starts flowing, then I feel like part of the roman spectator crowd and very guilty. The thing I don't get is having the same two fighters face eachother over and over again. Come on, if two guys have fought more than once and each has won, then you have to figure it's anyones win depending on the night. Gonna be real scary when these guys get old and some of them get dementia, no joking a well trained fighter even an aged one can be a dangerous thing!
Nice touch toward the end from the dumb a$$ filming.
She says "we can press charges. I got it all on film"
Yeah, well your film also shows one of you stole his bag and one of your friends saying "lets go through that $hit"
The old man might be crazy but he's just crazy enough to not take someones $hit. Nothing wrong with standing your ground.
I don't think race had anything to do with this. Yes they both made a white and black comments but they were arguing/fighting and in arguing/fighting you go after what is different then you.
If it were 2 white guys, one fat and one skinny, it would have been fat a$$ and skinny a$$.
Rich man vs poor man
gay man vs straight man
Mainer vs flatlander
trash man vs banker
Come on, it's fighting, not time to bang bongo drums and talk about feelings. Save that crap for the beer summit.
