Its much better than some of the other crap they show on TV. Like just about any sitcom, bowling, reruns of movies I have seen a thousand times. And all of those stupid reality shows.


yeah you're right. it is better than any one of the fat, dumb as shit, lazy, ignorant, lucky to have his wife sitcoms that are on every night. am i high? no. am i drunk? maybe. but you are wrong. sure reality programming is the personification of the degradation of society, but christ man. tv is terrible. and so is nascar on tv.

Terrible story - I failed to find the humor in it.

Anyways, if Nascar is a sport, then Poker and cheerleading are as well....I respect the drivers for sitting in the car in ungodly heat for four hours. Yes, it takes great hand-eye coordination and split second decisions - but I just continue to see it as a non-sport - all depends on your definition of sport

You know what? I don't give a s*** about any of this PC crap anymore. It's completely stupid to erect flag poles at a temporary campsite where it is so friggin tall that it can EASILY hit a power line. There is such a thing as too much. I am a NASCAR fan, I have been going to races starting at the Santa Fe Speedway clay track and finishing at several at Michigan. I have seen these people, and been among them. A good portion of them are not very smart. I'm not saying it was funny that they died. I'm saying it's funny the way they died, and the way they lived. It is something that was totally predictable. When rednecks stop acting like rednecks, they won't get stories and jokes told about them, even in tragic times like this. I rarely have sympathy for stupidity, and this is just another case of the human race shedding itself of it's dead skin.
