AAAAAAAAH!!!!! THEY'RE GONNA STONE ME!!!!!! TAKE CARE OF TYRANT!!!!!
Nor do I, I've always hated nearly every kind of sport, so why should I like it now just because national pride is a stake?
I feel that it's all about endorsements and TV/movie deals now days.
It's who gets to be on the 'Wheaties' box, who goes on Leno/Letterman...who's gonna write a book because he/she got an advance from the publishing house, or what TV channel/movie studio gets to do the life story????
Like the song says: it's all about the Benjamins.
Wow...what a night.
The fair in my town is the second-largest in Missouri. When it comes to town in August, everybody goes. EVERYBODY. I went a couple of hours ago. My dad and his fiancé went off somewhere, and I found some of my friends and went off with them. I didn't bring a cell phone, because I hate cell phones. We got some food, and suddenly, BUCKETS of rain started falling. I should add that it hasn't rained a significant amount in three months. Chaos ensued as everybody at the fair ran to get under a tent. The rain only got worse. Bolts of lightning flashed from the clouds, and the deafening crash of thunder succeeded it. For some reason, my friends decided to seek shelter somewhere else. So we ran out from under the tent and into a place that sold food. It looked suspiciously like a emergency shelter. We then heard an announcement that the fair was shutting down at 9:00 (it usually ends at midnight). This has never happened before; the revenue lost would be staggering. It became even more chaotic, as people were running every which way, trying to find people, including me. One of my friends said his phone didn't work, so we couldn't hook up with our parents. After about thirty minutes of looking and getting drenched, we finally located them. It took about an hour to get out of the parking lot, if you could call it that. It was a grass field, and cars were parked every which way. We finally got out, though. The ride home looked and sounded exactly like a car wash. I honestly cannot remember a storm this intense in a long time.
Stay away from this thread!
I kid, I kid 'cause I love.
so, you got wet?
team GB racking up them gold medals now!

Ugh. I just got into my first scuffle over car insurance. And unfortunately I brushed against THE BIGGEST ASSHOLE ON THE PLANET.
So after leaving a book store, I get into my car to back out and leave. The SUV to my right has the backseat side door open, and a women is securing her daughter in her carseat, with her stroller between our cars as well. I start up my car (WHICH IS REALLY LOUD), so she knows I'm about to back up. I judge that I can safely back up, and by doing so, she'll have more room with the stroller. So when I back up, my side mirror brushes into her car door and her door bends backward a little. I immediately stop. I get out and ask if everything is OK. She says, "No, everything's not OK, get your insurance out." So at this point, from watching enough People's Court, I know that even though she had her door too wide, this is my legal fault since I backed out. It could've happened to anyone, it's just bad luck for me.
She closes the door. There's no dent, the door closes perfectly fine. I point this out to her, and she shows me a 2 inch SCUFF MARK on the inside of the door. And a small circular dent on the edge. She says its her fiance's company car and she has to return it exactly as is. I don't think I caused the tiny circular dent (my mirror is way too high to cause that part) and I don't think the scuff mark is material enough to be considered "damage". So she calls the police and they come over to do a write-up. The police officer looks at the mark and quickly says there is no material damage. He says the interior circular dent isn't a real thing or something (maybe part of the design) and the scuff mark can be removed with WD-40. So he gets WD-40 and removes it. It's about 90% gone, you can still kind of see the scuff a little, but it's extremely minor. And the officer says if they use wax they can completely remove it.
So she calls her fiance, since it's his company's car. The officer talks to him and explains there isn't any material damage and all I hear is frenetic yelling from the other side of the phone. So the officer sighs, writes up a little minor incident report thingy, and she leaves. She doesn't even take my insurance info. I guess she can look it up from the police thingy. I apologize to the police officer and told him I'm kind of embarrassed he had to come out, and he basically says he doesn't know what the big deal is.
I get it, they're nervous about the company car. But it's such a minor interior scuff mark that 1) they would never even notice and 2) wouldn't even care about it if you showed it to them.
I don't know what's going to happen now, but I'm glad I at least wasted a lot of her time. Having the police themselves saying there was no damage definitely helps my case, though.
60 Second Simpsons - Ep31 - Rosebud
That doesn't surprise me, I've had an incident happen like that in the past as well. Although in that case, the insurance sided with him. I was extremely lucky since we were already planning on switching to Allstate the very next month, so nothing skyrocketed. (they only had to pay a couple hundred anyways) Still hate when people are just that nitpicky about tiny little details on their cars. This guy was a total dick about it too, even the insurance adjuster couldn't resist whining about him.
If you allow me to also join in on the venting, a bit of advice: if you drive up to a coworker's party after not only seeing the cops come down the hill when driving in but also stopped by a bunch of people literally fleeing the scene... you should probably not still try to make a point and come in because that party is going to hell. Now I have to deal with the fact that I'm planning to move in with somebody who might just quickly become a social pariah at work, among other really screwed up things I witnessed in thirty minutes straight. I'm still extremely shaken, but hey, at least I learned a lesson.
Australia are fucking awful in the Olympics so far, it's almost sad.
I'm trying not to be negative but that annoyed the heck out of me and flooded the forum!
I'm kind of surprised it wasn't some random new member
