Like many of you I involuntarily busted out in laughter towards the end. Which would normally be OK, except the I'm using the laptop in the bedroom with the GF, who was sleeping. I stress the "was" part. Seeing as how she has to wake up at 5:30am CST (just over an hour, now), this means I'll probably be making her an extra nice breakfast in hopes of retaining my testicles.

I so want this to get memed long-term.

Well, that explains it.

Dude, I've watched a lot of horror movies in my life. If I see some woman banging on a window screaming for her life, you better believe I'm going to think about it. Last thing I need in my day is Leatherface popping out on me.

CBS's viral marketing campaign is getting out of control...



Even better ... Kidnapped girl in the #H50 Hoopio episode is *Amanda* Morris ...
Girl rescued in Cleveland is Amanda Berry...

from his other interview (round 1:30):

Quick and dirty.

It's still uploading, so don't get too excited if it doesn't work yet.
I'll probably remix the audio later. Didn't have the best setup , it may be a bit over the top.

But I like what I did with the remix.

Aquapope: flamingboard: Some "psychic" (lying whore) lying, evil, scum-of-the-Earth parasites who deserve nothing better than being staked out in the sun covered in blood and honey, so insects and scavengers tear their flesh to shreds and crap in their eyes and mouth until painful death takes them,told one of the girl's mom's that she was dead and floating in some water, which is just another way of saying the body won't be found, somewhere because she made it up to get a check from a pained and grieving mother of a missing girl, like a farking evil vulture..

There, fixed that for you...


Whoa, whoa whoa...  I will not have you sullying the profession like that.  They serve a very important purpose, and are quite useful.  No need to bring down vultures by comparing them to psychics, that`s uncalled for.

He did something many people don't do.   He saw a situation which he thought may have been domestic violence and unlike many people he did not ignore it, but kicked the door in and helped the woman out.  It is unfortunate, sad and pathetic that still today many would ignore a woman or man in a situation which they believe is a domestic situation.

I wonder how many lives would me saved if more people didn't ignore or choose to turn a blind eye to violence or intimidation or threats because it is domestic or they think it is domestic.

He may not be a hero in that he was not risking his life but he is an example all men and women should try and follow.

Can you post a reference to an online dictionary link that defines "hero" along the lines of what you've written above?  Because, after looking it up for myself (and admittedly being surprised at just how loose the definition is - I thought it would at least involve putting oneself in harm's way, but it doesn't), I'm not seeing it.

Saving 3 girls from 10-some-odd years of kidnapping.  If that's not heroic, I'm not sure what would qualify.

Hmm. You don't want to "shiat on the parade" but here you are, pants down, ass hanging over the fence with drippy poo coming out.

Guest: He may not be a hero in that he was not risking his life but he is an example all men and women should try and follow.


I would go further and note that risking your life is not part of the definition of "hero".  I also thought it would be, but I could find no definition online that included that qualifier.  And if you think about it, why should it?  There are plenty of heroic acts that can be cited where lives were not on the line, so I don't know why this is such a common qualifier in the first place.

And, it's not necessarily true in this case anyway.  At the time he saw a woman screaming for help, how did he know his own life wasn't in danger if he acted?  He didn't.  The perp could have been right behind her with his shotgun leveled.  That would be the thought running through my mind.  Hopefully I'd kick in the door anyway.  I couldn't say for sure; I haven't been in this situation.  That what makes him a hero.  He acted where many would not have.  It doesn't need to be any more complex than that.

filter: Bathia_Mapes: This gentleman is the true definition of a hero.

"Gentleman?"

So just doing the 'right thing' these days makes one a hero?  I thought doing something 'heroic' meant doing something truly selfless, not just letting a tortured crime victim use your telephone.  If this man were living in a gated community in the suburbs, wearing a suit and tie, and was very 'well spoken,' people wouldn't be bandying the word 'hero' about.

Not trying to be 'word definition hero guy' here.

The true hero is the woman who escaped and ultimately saved the others.


Yes, asshole, doing the right thing makes you a farking hero these days. Maybe you haven't noticed, but not farking many people bother to "do the right thing" even when it's right in their farking face and in their best interest to do so.

So yes, fark the fark Cynic brigade, may you all wither in bitterness. Guy was in the right place at the right time and did the right thing. Maybe that's not exceptional to you, but in a shiatty dying city like Cleveland, it's a farking miracle.

Coming on a Bicycle: People have different opinions of what's funny, that's how. I mean, I'm not impervious to it, but hilarious? C'mon. Hey, I'm happy for those women, and I think the guy is a very decent man, so I'm not trolling. It's a relief, for sure.


I get the feeling some of you people never met a real live black man before.

That was the greatest interview I have ever seen.

It just kept getting better and better, and climaxed at 'you know something's wrong when a little white girl runs into a black mans arms'.

I know what sauce is in relation to a woman, but what are mcnuggets? Are they those little skin-tag things that elderly Floridian women have all over their necks?

He makes it sound like they rescued a lot of ladies, even if it only one good on him.



Well, it goes like this. Helen Keller, Anne Frank and Amelia Earhart heard about the World Hide-And-Seek Championships and decided to try it out......

Amanda was last heard from when she called her sister on 21 April 2003 to say she would get a lift home from work at a
Burger King restaurant.
