It's like a geriatric version of Bumfights.

I don't know. I feel a little sorry for the guy who "won."

I'm sure he wasn't trying to kill the guy with a single punch. It probably didn't even cross his mind that it was possible.

Hipnerd.
Halloween: Resurrection Michael Myers is back! And he's *yawn* killing people or something. I'm pretty sure there was a knife...

The first rule of The Swaying Palms Retirement Co-op Fight Club is not to invite Herr Schuss in #48C to group movie night unless you really want to see how he could drop a Laplander's goat with one punch back in the Big War.

I live near Tamarac, and in places it is the stereotypical South Florida old person's place to die. White shoes with plaid pants, yellow shirts to match their oversized Cadillac's are the majority of the Tamarac population.

People looking for 'dates' in a theatre (real creepy this one, but you never felt anger until some friendly guy is eyeballing you in the men's room)


Time to start viewing a better class of movie there pal.

They're farking obnoxious New Yorkers who felt compelled to retire down here and ruin the state.

"Rosenberg's daughter, Cindy Schachter of Sunrise."

...and raise their kids there.

This happened in Florida and there were no guns involved?

WTF?!
 
2002-12-31 01:55:28 PM
I think it would be funny if the guy's lawyer dug up some old common-law right to defend the honor of one's lady. The guy's wife was insulted first.

now if it had been some young punk telling the old bag to zip it then got his ass whipped by the old man, would it be hero tagged?

This has the makings of a great Billy Crystal shtik.

" Down in Florida... there were these 2 old jewish guys in line for a movie and one had a talkative wife... So the the guy in front sez... "Shaddup Already!"" yada yada yada.

"...and raise their kids there."

Bullshiat, the daughter is a farking New Yorker, too, a lot of times the kids follow them down to leach off of them.

Send all the New Yorkers home.

CanuckGuy: I'm of the opinion that if you assault someone you better be ready for any consequences. For example, when I learned how to use a firearm I was taught that any shot is a shot to kill. You can't assume you're just going to hurt someone. Granted, it's not his fault the dude had a paper noggin, but the bottom line is that the guy died from his actions. I can't see a whole lot of mitigating circumstances here, no matter what was said. The accused threw the first (and last) punch. Let him rot.

Sometimes I wish I could bring myself to punch someone. I think it would feel great... you know, when they just really piss you off. But I know someone who spent time in jail for manslaughter. Owned a tattoo place, came out one night and heard a girl crying for help in her car. So he pulled the guy out and punched him in the face a few time. Well I don't know him that well so maybe there was no damsle in destress, but people still get punched to death. Just in case, I'll stay all nonviolent and stuff.

Happened November 8

2 months ago - I guess the law is also old and slow


Ummm. I think you are slow. Didn't you catch the part about the victim being in a coma? And the timing is pretty typical....
 
2002-12-31 01:58:58 PM
don't old people go to florida to die anyway.

what's the big deal?

About two years ago I had to throw two guys out of work, and they were real weekend warrior types, you know, beer balls in the first degree... so anyways, I toss 'em out, and one of 'em takes a swing at me, so I had to take the both of 'em out. I got a guy with a similar shot, totally fight club with the blonde guy, I knocked him back, and threw a punch while he was going down, and then he hit the ground hard, head first. I turned to the other guy, hit him a couple times, and that gave me a couple feet of room from these guys. All I took was a slap and a ripped t-shirt, but the tough guy grew a dixie-cup out of the side of his head... that'll teach him.
 
2002-12-31 01:59:45 PM
Hey - the victim was messing with the other guy's woman. Maybe he was being chivalrous.
 
2002-12-31 02:00:05 PM
That guy really was an ass for punching him in the first place. I think we can all agree that he didn't mean to kill him, but that certainly doesn't excuse him. After all, it says that his wife was complaining loudly. I can just picture some old retired FL broad now, complaining and generally being annoying. She should consider herself lucky that being told to shut up was all she got.

And I can understand this guy feeling the need to stick up for his wife, but where the hell does he get off punching a guy for saying something rude to his wife, when that's exactly what the old biatch was doin' to him? Old people are retarded.

"Grumpy Old Men 3: The Dead Zone".

Seriously though, senility can cause acts of agression like this. That's what happens when your brain starts misfiring. At least that's what I tell my father when he gets upset.
 
2002-12-31 02:01:05 PM
I didn't know there was Florida - NY hostility. On the west coast, it's Washington State vs. California. Except it's the north hating the south. They sell sweatshirts that say "welcome to washington, californians right lane only," which is the lane going off a cliff. Etc.
 
2002-12-31 02:01:36 PM
Reminds me of a college roomate who was really a prick when he was drinking, which was all of the time. It finally caught up to him one night drinking in Boston, some guy broke his face with a mag-light. The moral? While violence is wrong, don't piss everyone off or somewhere, sometime someone will kick your dumb drunk ass.

How do they perform artificial resuscitation in New York City?

They lean over the victim and say, "Get up before you f*ckin' die."
 
2002-12-31 02:02:30 PM
Ahem. Medical talk here. The one punch and your dead syndrome usually means a rupture of the Circle of Willis. A wee blood vessel in the back of the head/neck that when ruptured means your production has been brought to an abrupt end. I believe there is case law where murder charges have mean reduced or dropped when it was proved that the cause of death was actualy a rupture of Willy. The one in the neck, not the one in between your legs. But I'll let Lawtalkingguy deal with that.

There. 2002 was not a complete educational loss for you. Now let's get out of here and lift some mugs of beer.

Two life lessons.

Complaining loudly about slow moving lines does not make them move any faster,

Responding to a rudeness with another rudeness can get you popped in the nose,

And, popping someone in the nose can land you in a boatload of trouble.

Okay three life lessons.

hhehe reminding me of seinfeld.. George's Parents would fit this description nicely.
 
2002-12-31 02:03:08 PM
so anyways, I toss 'em out, and one of 'em takes a swing at me, so I had to take the both of 'em out. You are real tough. Hitting the guy who swung at you and sucker punching his friend who probably didn't see what the first guy did.... Ooooh. Big Man.
 
2002-12-31 02:03:20 PM
hey man whats the rush?

you shoulda ate some of them downers your old bitty has.

now see what you have gone and done for having a mouthy impatient wife, you need to cool it in the cage for that.

bet he claims his aggression was due to the use of viagra.

The movie title and the age factor call for a much better headline. There's almost too much material there to work with.

I'm not sure, supposedly a couple of NSFW pics, but it happened yetereday and the only NSFW possible ones were the sports injuries. I forget the thread. I admit that there have been some questionable ones in the past, but no more than I've seen from others.
 
2002-12-31 02:03:52 PM
If this was over a cell phone, I could understand killing the guy. But over being told to be quiet? I hear Alabama has a gas chamber for these kind of things.
 
2002-12-31 02:04:11 PM
Okay,

If someone told my wife to shut up, I think I would be a little miffed. If someone called my wife a "biatch" or a "whore" or something like that, they'd definitely be getting a fist sandwich for lunch. So, if someone insults my wife enough to provoke me to hit them in the face, and they fall down (because they're a puss) and hit their head and die, am I guilty of manslaughter?

This is crazy! I would be guilty of manslaughter if I punched a man in the face and he fell off a building and landed on the sidewalk 30 stories below but the guy fell what... like five and a half feet?? What kind of glass-skulled freak was this guy?

I agree that the accused over-reacted but sometimes you deserve a smack in the mouth for some things.
 
2002-12-31 02:04:43 PM

Ummm. Think that's why there is a manslaughter charge and not murder?
 
2002-12-31 02:04:59 PM
now if it had been some young punk telling the old bag to zip it then got his ass whipped by the old man, would it be hero tagged?

now that would be funny tag.

i bet this guy was mike tyson's old coach. one punch to KO!
 
2002-12-31 02:05:38 PM
movies are scary places sometimes. i see people behind/infront of me and they yack yack on their phones, to their honies, and whatever. sometimes i say something.

listen, i piad for teh damn movie, shutup and enjoy it...that's what i want to do.

i wish i knew how to fight, i would brawl some of these dudes who just yap yap yap during the flick. you do the 1/2 head turn, the full head turn, the look-em-dead-in-the-eyes and mouth 'quiet please'.

grrrrr.
