I would think it would be safer than, for instance, while in the car and driving...

One less stupid person on the highway.

Sabre Springs is supposed to be a haute-taute area but the people who live there seem to be screwed in the head. Seriously, look at what's in the news about that place. First it was wild swinger parties, then it was that pycho guy who raped and murdered a little girl, and now it is an idiot who tried to stand up while driving thus getting blown out of his car. I'm staying out of that neighborhood.

Twat.

When I started reading that, I thought it was the driver who stood up and was killed, THEN they arrested him.

I'm afraid I'm missing something. Maybe I got the timeline mixed up

1. the driver of the convertible, driver#1, unbuckles and stands up to take off his T-shirt.

2. the wind blows driver#1 out of his car and on the freeway pavement

3. driver#2 runs over driver#1

4. driver#1 gets killed

5. "Both drivers pulled over." :confused:

6. driver#1 was arrested :clueless: on suspicion of drunken driving. driver#2 was not held at fault.

It's an impressively poorly written article.

It is, but it does say the passenger.

MoSe
04-04-2006, 09:55:08
yes, but it's a trick of the mind, which is part of the fun.

like those law students in some US uni, who were ready to witness that the attacker in a simulated assault was toting a gun while he actually had a banana in his hand instead

That's a fake website by the way - the weather forecast for scattered rain in San Diego is a dead giveaway. :)

OK, but can't a fake website post real news?

Who the hell needs to stand up to take off a shirt?

Fat people. But you'd think a fat guy would be harder to blow away.

no..that's actually not a fake website. It's a website run by the newspaper in san diego

That's not impressively poor. That's just typical US journalist.

It is impressively poor, even if it is standard US journalism... The subject of sentences is often confused, its disjointed and the story simply doesn't flow.

Funko
05-04-2006, 08:43:06
I don't think it's a US only thing. Local journalism in the UK is often just as poor.

Kitsuki

Its good to see that at least one of you still assumes I'm a complete idiot. :)

Don't worry, we all think that. :D

Yeah, we've just given up on throwing it in your face* all the time. :D

*There's a part of my mind that tells me that phrase isn't right, but buggered if I can figure it out. Dman cold. :(

Funko

Throwing up in your face?

Throwing it in your face whilst yelling "SEAGULL!"?

Greg W
05-04-2006, 12:36:50
I have no idea what the seagull comment means.

Hmm, shoving it in your face? That sounds a bit better...

the worst you get from being seagulled is aids

(and they would have to smear it in your mouth, or something I would guess)

Been raining cats and dogs for two days now.

Up north in San Francisco they had a record 28 days of rain. So much rain that in the Sacramento delta (where the American and Sacramento rivers come together) they've had leavees break.

Of course there's nothing but farm fields up there so the flooding is just going to piss off a few farmers. ;)

Even then, the likelihood of contracting HIV from HIV+ semen due to oral contact is minimal.

At least for the next 2 weeks. Now that it's hot-ish it's going to die real fast.

at least my front yard looks ok- but a muddy winter with next to no snow + big dog thundering around after rabbits and his frisbee = shit backyard

Tell your neighbors its the dead bodies buried there that make the lawn nice.
