I make fun of NASCAR, but at least their fans are protected from "most" accidents.

As an off-road racer from NV this hit very close to home. I knew several families that were in the area at the time but no one I knew was hurt.

While this is very sad and my heart goes out the the victims, i have to say that off-road spectators are the dumbest people in the world.

I love how they throw in a mention of the Maryland accident. It was a completely illegal street race in the middle of the night with untrained drivers.. but ya, it relates to this story.

If you're a fan of a sport because it's dangerous and during an event you might get to see a huge fiery wreck or see someone get maimed or killed, then at one of those events you're engulfed in a huge fireball or get maimed or killed: Tough shiat! You should've picked a better vantage point; no lawsuit for you.

"The crowd gathers next to the track with little-or-no barrier between them and the vehicles"

And that is why there is no just cause for a lawsuit. In such cases, there is no such thing as the plnatiff "not doing enough." The dead an injured knew the risk, it's their own damn fault for knowingly standing right next to a course with vehicles moving at high speed.

I do not post in red just to attention whore. Please see my profile for more details as to why before you react before thinking and accuse me of doing something that I am not doing.

Hmm, account created in 2001, you say you've met Drew, and only 1 link greened.

Yep, even Drew thinks you're an asshat. Shut yer piehole and go cry somewhere else, biatch.

I love stupid people , yeah I have met Drew, and his wife. That was back in 2003 at a Chicago Fark party( feel free to look it up, it was at Mistersyms place for night one), and I am sure he knows all about it (you don't know him, apparently) And since I had my first computer 27 years ago, I am gonna doubt that comment as well, so shut the fark up.

I met him and his wife at a fark party in 1997. he also approved my headline, bought me a beer, introduced me to wil weaton, changed the oil on my car and said I was the funniest person he ever met. just before he walked away he stared me in the eye, slapped a 100 dollar bill in my hand and said "don't you go changin". top THAT n00b!

Ah yes, another case of rabid off-road fans getting plowed by their sport...

It's not like this doesn't happen often, it's only news because it happened here in the US.

They can sue all they want, they knew it was dangerous and chose to stand where they did, the only negligent behavior was their own.

Any person of semi-reasonable intelligence knows that standing downrange from a ramp or outside on the exit side of an apex is asking to catch a vehicle in the teeth.

If this were to happen anywhere else, it would be no less tragic, but it would not be nearly as much of a big deal.

You're not important, no one gives a crap who you know, and some of us are old enough to have known your mom in a biblical sense before you got anywhere near an Apple II or C64, so shut the fark up, you useless namedropping poser. Try being useful on your own merits, punk.

Jackmeat is having a breakdown.

I've never met Drew, but I knew the squirrel with the huge nuts that helped launch FARK, so there.

We used to go to high school together, therefore, I'm waaaay cooler than you'll ever be. He also said I was the funniest human he'd ever met.
 
2010-08-15 05:29:21 AM
Wow this thread really brought out some asshattery. Posts relevant to the article? Not so much.
 
2010-08-15 05:30:02 AM
@log_jammin - you pointed out me being a member since 2001 but now I am a noob? ok that quickly shows your a genius.

Um GrendelMK1, not sure that was name dropping per se by pointing out the truth. Following your sentence with punk shows you are, I don't know, just about to graduate high school.

And I was wrong, that Fark party was 2002, sorry for the confusion on facts.

Word. This was about a car wreck; not a train wreck.

Honest question. What are you drinking/smoking, and how much have you had?
 
2010-08-15 05:33:32 AM
@Notafinn I don't even recall what article it is, to be honest. And the argument is moot, so we can move on. Got fantasy football things to deal with
 
2010-08-15 05:34:00 AM
Add "crashed into by an off road race car" as method #47 how I won't die.

Also, air show, monster truck show, eaten by a shark.....

Idiots.

So, 8 people die, 12 more injured and your big concern is that people on FARK aren't paying enough attention to you. Wow, impressive.

just don't go off-road racing tonight. k?

2010-08-15 05:38:59 AM
Wow, Jerkmeat. You turned a car wreck into a trainwreck. I've never seen somebody be a has-been and a wannabe at the same time.

Were you in the band Warrant by any chance?
 
2010-08-15 05:40:43 AM
this kidn of asshattery is great for the gene pool. i'd say, we should encourage this kind of thing in more places. except of course, being Merkins, they'll sue and probably win money in court for being morans instead - pretty much reversing the effect on the gene pool. dagnabbit
 
2010-08-15 05:41:22 AM
i've a reasonably low fark number. never been to a fark party. got 3 greens (mostly dealing with Formula 1).
