I'm all for freedom and individual rights, but at no point will I condone the behavior of the guy in the vehicle. Police will overstep their bounds and infringe on your rights from time to time, but that is the exception rather than the rule. I've got no respect for the cop losing his cool or the gu...

Also, people sit here bitching that the legislature is a bunch of ...

I'd also like to change my submission for most unbreakable record. That title should go to the single season MLB wins and losses leaders, Old Hoss Radbourn with 59 and John Coleman with 48, respectively.

I'm with you Genro. Wilt's 100 sounds incredible on the surface, but any research completely debunks the mystic. It does nothing for me as far as records are concerned. It will never be broken, but it deserves an asterisk just as much as Bonds HR record - although clearly not for the same reasons.

The most prestigious record is the Triple Crown of horse racing.
The most popular record is the home run record.
The most unbreakable record is Gretzky's career points record.
