"Ooo, I don't think she'll be getting up after that one."
"Right you are, Ken."

"From the waist up, I'm doing great."

ESTES PARK, Colo. - Judy Curtis doesn't think she's lucky, but she knows she's blessed.

The 47-year-old mother of four daughters easily could have been killed, maimed or much more seriously injured over the weekend when a 5-foot-diameter, 1-ton boulder rolled onto her legs, pinning her for more than three hours.

Instead, Curtis found herself in St. Anthony Central Hospital with a dislocated left hip, a large patch of skin scraped off her thigh and a deep cut on one calf.

"From the waist up, I'm doing great," Curtis said. "It could have been so much worse. I am blessed."


If you're wondering where the rest of the article is, so am I. They call this journalism?

The didn't even tell us how she got free from the boulder. Just shameful.

They* didn't even...

"I am blessed"

Man, I must be tagged for damnation. Nothing heavy fell on me at all today.

"From the waist up, I'm doing great," Curtis said. "It could have been so much worse. I am blessed."

Blessed, my ass. I've never been pinned by a one ton boulder, so I must be a million times more blessed than this woman.

See, she praises God for saving her from being killed, and calls herself blessed. I say God is pissed at her so much that he threw a huge boulder at her. It's a good thing for her that God is a lousy shot.

Can't get it up, eh Drew?

/had to be done
 
2004-08-20 05:09:57 PM
Just me, or was that picture not of a 5'd 1 ton rock?
 
2004-08-20 05:10:49 PM

"Oh, yeah. Bloody hell. I'm sweating in here. Roasting. Boiling. Baking. Sweltering. It's like a sauna. Furnace. You can fry an egg on my stomach. Ohh, who wouldn't lap this up? It's ridiculous. Tremendous. Fantastic. Fan-dabby-dozy-tastic. "

The rock in the picture is definitely not the 5 foot, 1 ton rock.
 
2004-08-20 05:11:25 PM
now those are some strong getaway sticks.
 
2004-08-20 05:12:34 PM
She now HATES rock and roll.

I'm amazed how fox news didn't somehow blame the democratic party...

"I'm Blessed."

Jeesh. If God chucked a 1 ton boulder on me I'd think he was trying to tell me something and certainly not that I'm Blessed. Maybe something more along the lines of "Look you got one more chnce buddy."
 
2004-08-20 05:14:55 PM
Definately NOT the same rock. Caption at bottom confirms "Picture for Illustration only"
 
2004-08-20 05:17:14 PM
finnadat....gotta agree at least she did not wuss out and cut her own appendage off.
 
2004-08-20 05:17:38 PM
She didnt even cut off a limb. Pussy.

This is exactly why I always hike with a large jar of vasoline and a stick of butter. Better safe than sorry I always say.

Killed? That seems like a serious injury to me. How can you be injured any worse than that?
 
2004-08-20 05:23:16 PM
thats classic... so a boulder rolls on a lady and these asshats decide to just use a picture of a random rock (which btw doesn't even look anywhere near being a '5 ft diameter' boulder).

mmmm hmm!
 
2004-08-20 05:24:41 PM
The picture is probably to demonstrate what a boulder is. Remember, Fox News has to explain things for the least intelligent of its readers as well (although, I think they really just look at the pretty pictures).
 
2004-08-20 05:27:38 PM
Crap article.. that is hardly journalism.
 
2004-08-20 05:32:16 PM
Skinink I love that movie. First thing I thought of too.

That was a picture of a large rock. Not the large rock.

[mexican trumpets]

One ton of boulder,
Guajira, one ton of boulder,
One ton of booooooullllder,
It rolled onto my legs,
I escaped with cuts and bruuuuises

[end mexican trumpets]

a rolling stone gathers no moss
a running woman doesn't get her legs crushed by a rolling stone.

Judy Curtis doesn't think she's lucky, but she knows she's blessed.

What a dipshiat, this is the epitome of lucky. If she were truly 'blessed' the rock wouldn't have fallen on her.
 
2004-08-20 05:36:47 PM
imagine how blessed the rest of us are to not even have the boulder fall on us in the first place.
 
2004-08-20 05:37:10 PM
So how did she get out? Did the boulder just get bored and leave? What the hell kind of article is this?
 
2004-08-20 05:38:18 PM
"The boulder was actually a cleverly designed trap set by the Bush administration in order to capture soccer Moms; it was baited with an Atkins snack bar."

Oh, wait this was FOX News

"Kerry reports that the boulder was actually a Viet Cong Booby trap that has been searching for him in order to take its savage revenge on him for burning down a villiage filled with orphans, old women, kittens and other pitiable stuff."

/come on 5:00

Did the boulder just get bored and leave?

Bwwaaaahahahaahhaahaaaa!!!
 
2004-08-20 05:49:15 PM
She's "blessed"?!?!?

So, then does this mean the people who God hates recieve blowjobs?
 
2004-08-20 06:01:13 PM
Wow. She didn't quite get completely crushed by a huge rock. It's a MIRACLE! A HOLY MIRACLE!
 
2004-08-20 06:06:21 PM
If God drops a boulder on you and then allows you to escape if he loves you?
Is it me or does this lady thinks of God as a kid with a magnifying glass, an anthill, and a sunny day?
 
2004-08-20 06:09:09 PM
I think it's funny how many people don't realize this is article is written up by a Fox News affiliate, not the Fox News Channel.
 
2004-08-20 06:17:26 PM
fivenodes-

If she were truly "lucky" the rock wouldn't have landed on her.
 
2004-08-20 06:23:26 PM
2,000 pounds? How much is that in USD?
 
2004-08-20 06:35:53 PM
Well it looks like mrCasual won this one right out of the gate.
 
2004-08-20 06:48:49 PM
"...killed, maimed or much more seriously injured..."

Okay....I'm having trouble with the part about being killed OR more seriously injured....Is it possible to be more seriously injured than dead?
 
2004-08-20 06:59:19 PM
Was it modded?

Fox "23" News actually but I'm sure to some the facts dont really matter.

i still count this as a point for nature and zero points for us humans

One ton boulder?

Rosie O'Donnells head fell off?

Another example of the evils of Rock and Roll!



/Well, somebody had to say it.
