Vin Diesel is a horrible actor and has a small penis.

mytdawg: Hey I liked Pitch Black.


Same here. It was an original and worthy B-movie SciFi flick. Well done, and I like the anti-hero aspect of it.

I have the Ridicules of Chronic, but haven't watched it yet, so I can't pass judgement on that one.

Hulk Hogan is on the case.

I love the Riddick series. Yes, That includes Chronicles of Riddick, the animated movie and the games. I got them all... but the tea cup was sold separately.

I like the first "The Fast and the Furious" movie.

/But we need another F&F sequel like we need the black plague making a comeback.

Hey, I liked Hot Summer Night in Sausalito.

I heard this on the news this morning and thought I misheard it.

You mean if you burn diesel gas and breathe in the fumes it might be bad for you? Well wow!

Now I'm starting to think that inhaling ANY kind of smoke coming from something burning might not be good.

Maybe the Black Plague can make a comeback only in theaters showing the next F&F sequel.

I'm the opposite. If I am on a boat and get even a whiff of gas fumes, I usually puke.

I just want to say that Top Gear is History Channel's best 'reality' tv show.

I hope that now people get just as up in arms about walking through diesel smoke on the sidewalk as they do about cigarette smoke.

//oh wait, it's not as easy to feel self-righteous about diesel smoke
///im a non-smoker btw

Vin Diesel likes video games and Dungeons & Dragons, and has expert break dancing skills.

I figured he'd be a hero on Fark.

Exhaust fumes are dangerous? Especially to miners? Really?

Whodathunkit.

Apart from Saving Private Ryan, I've never seen any film with Vin Diesel in it, do I get a medal or something?

Go see Pitch Black right now! really good horror thriller.

FTFA: nonsmoking miners who were heavily exposed to diesel fumes for years had seven times the normal lung cancer risk of nonsmokers.

So lets put an excessive tax on diesel fuel, like they do cigarettes, so people will quit using diesel.

No, but you do get a word: irrelevent.

Well good thing I only breath exhaust from gas that must have vitamins and minerals in it. Everything a growing boy needs.

THIS.

Find a picture of him holding a cat on a webcam and Fark would create a statue in his honor.

So when does the fascist Mayor Bloomberg outlaw diesel in NYC?

And we need a 300% tax on diesel fuel as well, get on that Congress.

It's for the children!

Gas? Do you mean diesel? Diesel smells much worse IMHO. What kind of boat, sailboat (diesel) or motorboat (gas)?

As for health risk it seems hard to pick which is worse, gas or diesel. I think diesel has always had the worst exhaust (mostly the particulates) but gas is much more volatile and can be absorbed by the skin as well as breathed in. I usually can smell it on my hand, in the skin, after pumping gas. All that benzene can't be that good for you. I would not be surprised to find out that the rise of petroleum use has corresponded to a rise in cancer and autism.

kcfoxie: Does this not make the case of biodiesel?


The article didn't say what it was about the diesel exhaust that made it dangerous. Biodiesel exhaust will have some differences (e.g. less sulfur) but won't necessarily be any better in terms of hydrocarbons.

The article did make a good point, that exhaust from a modern filtered diesel engine is much cleaner than the clouds of black smoke that were traditionally associated with diesel.
