I'd say "yeah, been there", except I didn't farking die.

Though, to be fair, there's really just a flat-out major element of luck in not dying as a human in any given endeavor. Take things like "falling down", for instance. There are people that have jumped repeatedly off the tenth floor of a building without so much as a scratch, and there are people that have tripped over a crack in the sidewalk, fallen literally zero feet, and died.

Biology has at best a nodding acquaintance with physics, basically. I'm not surprised by anything anymore.

//Disclaimer: 3/4 of a bottle of scotch and whatever was left of my gin earlier, this may or may not be on topic. And thanks to an awesome dude that will remain anonymous, you probably paid at least half a second of attention to this due to the totalFark tag. Joke's on you, hypothetical dude I randomly made up.

So I guess this is the Euro thread for today?

If you think soccer is boring go watch 500 miles of left turns on an oval.

Can we please put this CSI Miami thing to death now.

It was old a long time ago.

So was your mom, but we still keep her around for entertainment purposes.

CowardlyLion: Trapper439: holybull99: Soccer is SOOOOO dull, even the highlights on ESPN suck. Only thing mildly entertaining is own goals cause of the pain involved.

I like that bit in American Football where the clinically obese linemen push each other over, and then one guy runs really fast while using his truly phenomenal skills to hold onto and/or catch a ball. Seeing a whole 11 minutes of that "action" over the course of a 3 hour NFL match during the time between the perpetual ad breaks is as exciting as sport gets.

It's like sumo-wrestling mixed with something I could do when I was four years old. What's not to like about that?

I feel like you're forgetting about even more action-packed American sports. baseball, where a collection of fat men stand still, one of them occasionally moves a stick, and occasionally walks a few feet to stand elsewhere. With everyone standing still, it's hard not to be on the edge of your seat with excitement at the possibility of someone, somewhere on the field eventually, slowly moving.

He's gonna pitch it...he's gonna pitch it...he's gonna pitch-OH! He turned to look at the guy on 1st base. OK, he's gonna pitch it...he's gonna pitch it...he's gonna pitch it... (actually, I love going to baseball games).

I haven't slept for 11 days, because that would be too long.

elffster: Bath salts would have helped him stay awake, right?

Yeah, but Chinese cannibals get hungry again after an hour, so he'd have to spend more time eating.

This European championship is exciting enough - my guess subby is a bloody Yank. And they shouldn't be talking about football.

Later, subby died of being a twat.
