Roger, you seem like a reasonable person, but this guy is an idiot plain and simple. The video tells the story. It wasn't like he turned a corner or had an obstructed view of what lay in front of him. He stopped so close to it, I'm surprised he didn't tell his son to try to pet it. This man live...

I've seen plenty of court cases, but never anything as upside-down as this. One could almost say the prosecution is working as the defense.
There's one juror who's fastidiously taking notes. Imagine perusing through those during deliberation:

Runner's high is extremely rare. Some serious runners have never experienced it. I started running daily at 18 and stopped running on the reg after coming to LSU (almost 25). The first time I got the high was about 2 1/2 years into it. I ran every day, sometimes twice.
Many people mistake the...

Nope. I don't do that. I was just stating my opinion that it was drawn out and overly-dramaticized, not to mention a CGI-lover's wet dream. Maybe my fault with it was that Jackson was too true to Tolkien and didn't use enough artistic license to m...

The worst character in the movie had to be the macho dwarf. Jackson took stereotyping macho dwarf swordsmen to a whole new level. When he asked the other dumbfounded character to throw him (you know because he can fight off 3,000 orcs single-handedly), I was praying there was lava somewhere within...

I haven't laughed this hard in months.
Did you get the feeling that Ian McKellen dreaded going to the set each day wearing that stupid "Wizard Hat"? That thing was so limp by the end of the saga, they said, "Scrap the hat, you're now, Gandolf the White."
Gandolf the Gray = Gandolf the Gay.
