brap: The road rose to meet him.
Beerguy: I have some friends that for whatever reason nicknamed me "Ace" a few years ago.The long and short of it is that there is a hill at the Irvine Meadows Amphitheater that is now known as "Ace hill"The only difference from the fellow in the video is that I was trying to get down the hill./Succeeded/Also Irish
Bondith: My Dad was doing the family tree and found out that one of my Irish ancestors died in a ditch, but there's more to it than that.The night before St. Patrick's Day, he was drinking at home and decided to go out to the pub to pick up some bacon. Once there, he had a beer. Then he got a cab to take him to another pub, where both he and the cabbie had a beer. He also had his hip flask filled with whiskey for St. Patrick's Day. Then he tried to walk home, and apparently decided to sit on the edge of an empty drainage ditch (this being Australia, there was no water in it) and apparently fell in and cracked his skull on the concrete bottom.So, whiskey, St. Patrick's Day, ditch. The only way that death could have been more Irish would be if he punched an Englishman on the way down.
