have they questioned those teens with the dented car?
 
2012-05-17 03:04:53 AM  
Seven feet tall he was, with arms like tree trunks. His eyes were like steel: cold, hard. Had a shock of hair, red, like the fires of Hell.

Well played, submitter. You deserve a reward. If only there were some sort of joke that could me made about the possibility of reward monies being reduced while in the hands of authority...

Big John drowned?

Not wearing a life jacket? Not a surprise. Only surprise is that he made it to his 80's with that kind of stupidity.

Dat jib. I like the cut of it, Subby.

10 feet? Shoulda seen the fisherman's corpse I found last Summer. That was a whopper. Had to be at least 14 feet.

Have you ever actually been in a boat? You don't need a life jacket in most cases. For the freak accidents, they can save your life, but it is worth years and years and YEARS of aggravation to prevent something that will likely never happen?

He didn't die because he was in the water. He died because he was 85.

Putting on a lifejacket when you go fishing in a small boat (as is what happened in this case) is "years and years and YEARS of aggravation"...

He wasn't walking around on the deck of a cruise ship. A small fishing boat is where a life jacket is the MOST useful.

...and he consumed the English with fireballs from his eyes, and bolts of lightning from his arse.

Easy choice for HOTW. Enjoying this headline in my window seat!

When he bit into you, his eyes rolled back in his head. Lifeless, like doll's eyes.

/Anyway, we delivered the bomb.

I've never worn a life jacket in a boat and I've never drowned. But of course I 1)am not 85, 2)can swim and 3)am not 85. Oh and I don't try to switch seats in a boat when I am 85.

puffy999: A small fishing boat is where a life jacket is the MOST useful.


He reached 8 and his buddy survived.

QED

Lifejackets aren't required in small fishing boats.

Now, a white water kayak or canoe? farkin' wear your jacket or die. That's pretty much the only two options.

You know, the thing about a dead fisherman... he's got lifeless eyes. Black eyes. Like a doll's eyes. When he comes at ya, doesn't seem to be living... until he bites ya, and those black eyes roll over white and then... ah then you hear that terrible high-pitched screamin'. The lake turns red, and despite all the poundin' and the hollerin', they all come in and they... rip you to pieces.

Looks like the lake practices catch and release.

I know it's a fisherman bragging joke, but my initial interpretation was "it's really Nessie, but guberment is pretending it's a streetlight."

I like that one better, too. Would have been somewhat fresher.

I'm not sure what you said here but I disagree.

damn, don't know this one, or if I do, I'm going to give myself a concussion from the facepalm
 
2012-05-17 12:09:46 PM  
I was kinda hoping he had a heart attack or something while fighting a huge bass so that I could say he died doing what he loved... that whole drowning thing, that just sucks.

Oh and Subs, thanks. Shoulda seen the fluke I caught last weekend, man alive it nearly pulled me under the dock!

FTFA, "...they were attempting to trade places in the boat..."

WTF? "Hey, Bob, the fishing's better on your side of the boat - let's change places."

Couldn't they just turn the boat around?

Surool: shock


Came for, satisfied.
 
2012-05-17 07:20:02 PM  
If you're sure you can swim for it, or don't really care if you drown or not, then by all means skip the life jacket.

Personally, I'd wonder why they are so sure the other guy didn't maybe tip the boat over on purpose. They should investigate who gains by the old guy's death, and whether that person has any connections to the guy who survived the 'accident'.
