Curious: and from this we learn the mexican monster trucks don't have kill switches. and when you don't have a kill switch what happens boys and girls?

i really expect to see the truck just continue on and disappear over the rise in the background.


This truck was built in America in the mid-80s when there was no such thing as kill switches on monster trucks. I only know this because I immediately recognized the truck as the old Fly-N-Hi, which I had a Matchbox toy of when I was a kid.

You'd think it would have occured to SOMEONE that jumping a leaf-sprung monster truck with no safety features towards an unprotected crowd is probably a bad idea. Morans.

Jument: Meh, fine. Monster trucking is pretty damn stupid. Anyone who would waste their time going out to watch it is not someone who IMHO has a terribly high value to the planet. To each their own of course. I'm sure many people think I'm an idiot too, but at least my hobbies are less likely to result in death.


Yeah, fark all those 12 year old boys for not liking what you like


/you're right; I do think you're an idiot

Those must be the cheap seats.  The ones directly in the path of the stunts.  WTH kind of venue was that?  An abandoned lot that had a dirt pile?  It looked like a construction site that ran out of budget.  It was a horrible scene even before the accident.

So we can't link to the bicycle race crash picture, but this video of 8 dying is fine for a mainpage link.<?>

I guess I'll get over it.

What does your comment have to do with the subject? NOTHING.

I think he hates OBAMACARE!!!! or something.


au'contrere- I'm simply pointing out the fact that there are a large group of people who live amongst us that want to live in a libertarian paradise, and when you live in a libertarian paradise, Darwin happens.

Oldiron_79: Before anyone gets on a "why do we waste gas on these things" rant monstertrucks run on nitromethane, not gasoline. Your prius burns more fossil fuel than a monster truck.


Why go green when you can go brown....

The First Four Katy Perry Albums: Huh. From what I know of Mexico, normally they would be adhering to the highest standards of safety and quality at such an event.


They did adhered to the highest Mexican standards.
