fusillade762: Bathia_Mapes: Karl Wallenda was his great-grandfather. And it was horrible what happened to him.

Next time I leave the country & they ask me the purpose of my trip, I'M going to say, "To inspire the world."

Every time I go to Canada I either answer the "purpose" question with a fake purpose we agreed on before hand or tell the truth, which is too existential for border patrol ("Because it's next door", "to go shopping, not sure where", "to see if I can see my house from here") and TO INSPIRE THE WORLD is acceptable?

And since when do they stamp passports?

/"To get booze at Duty Free."

I'm conflicted. Part of me thinks he's a pussy for using a tether (although ABC made him do it) but then again had he not worn a tether and fallen to his death I probably would have called him a moron and chalked up another win for Darwin.

He should have had Evel Knievel's grandkid jump over him while Harry Houdini's great-grandchild dangles below trying to escape a straitjacket.

Meh. He had a safety harness which took all the drama out of it.

He kept talking about Jesus which was annoying, but it was funny when he used the term jackoff.
