Subby, you are a rotten bastard for making me laugh at that.

/I can smell what the rock is cooking
 
2013-10-02 08:58:46 AM  
Daaaaaaaaaaaaamn, subby.
 
2013-10-02 08:58:48 AM  
Great headline, subby.
RIP DJ & Family
 
2013-10-02 08:59:10 AM  
Subby, you're going to Hell... obviously.  I just want to take this opportunity to claim my seat next to you.  You're gonna make the ride a lot more fun.
 
2013-10-02 08:59:40 AM  
Well, thanks for THAT cheerful little link, subby. Nothing like a chuckle to start the day.

It was the last thing Dwayne Johnson ever did. He was buried, alongside his other daughter Kiowa Rain, his wife, Dawna, and her nephews from Missouri, Baigen Walker, 10, and Paris Walkup, 22.

Agreed. I was all set to make with the jokes, but there's no funny there.

Absolutely tragic.

Wow.

I am a fan of Law of Really Big Numbers coincidences, but this tragic.

Her older brother, Dakota, a star rusher for the Demons who graduated in 2012, was with her too. On Monday afternoon, Palmer released Dakota, 19, from jail, where he was serving time for an August 2012 arrest.
"There was no way we could keep him in jail," Palmer said, noting that the teen will finish his sentence "after all this is over."


Imagine how he must feel.  If not for being in jail, he probably would have been out there with them and killed.

So the moral of the story is... crime does pay.

Also - WTF is with the high school painting their memorial messages... on a rock.

That seems a little like handing the family of a stabbing victim a knife inscribed with "we're sorry for your loss".
 
2013-10-02 10:02:46 AM  
Subby...

You magnificent, magnificent bastard.
 
2013-10-02 10:03:02 AM  
Really sad story. It can be scary to think how random and F'ed up this world can be sometimes. My thoughts and prayers go out to that family.
That said, A+ headline!

On the bright side, several ridiculous names have been taken out of circulation.

Also, great headline, but it appears to have been multiple Rocks.

I'm sad for my hometown. BV is one of those cool mountain towns where everyone knows everyone.

Sad story.  Not even going to fault them on naming the girl Kiowa.

(As it is, there's too many kids named Cheyenne out there, give the rest of us Tribes a chance to become stripper names, too!)
 
2013-10-02 11:27:36 AM  
I'm all for witty fark-lines, but this is a gut wrenching story.......... Those poor kids....

I hope the young fella that was in jail takes it as a sign and straightens out from whatever he did. His sister needs him now.

I bet if the Rock read that article his blood would run cold................
 
2013-10-02 11:58:43 AM  
In an ironic twist of fate, the rock's name was Paul.
The same name as the rock that almost crushed that car
in Taiwan months ago.

Proof that the universe hates those oh-so-unique names for yard apes and decided to save the taxpayers some money in future welfare payments.

I feel sad for the family in something like so random as this, could happen to anyone, but...

I hoped to go up there when I will be visitng BV next week.  Any Idea if the road/trail will still be closed?  If it's on federal property-I assume it still will be huh?

Any recommendations while in town?
 
2013-10-02 12:45:43 PM  
Yeah, I think this thread has pretty well covered every possible aspect of the joke.

/I'll get the lights.

Article says they want to close it permanently. I'd visit the hot springs at Cottonwood and the mt. princeton resort is nice too. Little late for rafting but the fishing is awesome this time of year on the Ark. The new side of town has some nice eateries and a brew pub. Go have a beer at the Lariat.

Second on the hot springs. Cottonwood is wonderful.

I had a crack about them changing the plot to the Highlander too much. But it's probably for the best no one reads that.

You think like a puny victim. If I was a star rusher (not sure what that is exactly), I would be thinking - "if I had been out there with them I could have stopped the boulders".

I didn't know them either, but my Dad's girlfriend is a retired teacher there in BV, and the father was over at her house just days before this happened. Now if I can just connect this to Kevin Bacon.

Sad story, and I am going to feel bad showing my Dad this headline. He may or may not laugh. And I might get a bonus cockpunch.
