It's almost as if death is inevitable or something.

That's a dick move, God.

If the driver's last name is du Pont, they'll give him a medal and a trip to Disney World

My favorite Onion headline "God answers sick little boys prayers, 'No!' says God".

This is just like Final Destination.  You dodge death once or twice, and it just keeps trying until he finally gets you.

why isn't anyone praising god after all?  He really wanted to talk with this guy but the friggin human beings kept getting in the way and 'curing' him.

Sometimes a good smiting is just what the doctor ordered.

I like the finishing touch that the passenger is being held for theft too.  Sort of takes the drunk driving up another notch by being a drunken getaway driver for a snatch & grab or something equally stupid.

And Orange Mound is such a lovely neighborhood, bad things just don't happen there.

I saw an interview with a doc on TV and the guy said, with a straight face, "If you don't die of something else, you'll eventually die of cancer".  Isn't that equally true of anything?  He might as well have said you'll eventually die of being eaten by midget cannibals.

Someone named Curteria killed somebody named Curtis? Was it over the name?

I was curtious about that, as well.

Not particularly. What he was trying to say is that cancer is essentially what happens to our bodies over time. It's kind of a natural (wince) process, and most likely due to the fact that we're omnivores. Basically everyone everywhere is slowly dying of cancer... Unless they die of something else first.

I'd file "being eaten by midget cannibals" under "something else."

Because that'd be something else!

Let's hope the drunk driver wasn't suffering from affluenza at the time.

Agreed, there was a valid concept there he was trying to communicate.  But being the literalist that I am it struck me as funny.

Ah, I gotcha.

Literalists do it with their genitals!

FYI nothing in the story indicates the driver was drunk.

Think the name is a good indication.
You'd drink too if you were named that.


We need to re-institute an eye for an eye policy.

"The 59-year-old was walking home Saturday night on Hugenot Street when he was hit and drug by a car."

The English language also died a little bit in TFA.

Man, that is a bummer.

If God had missed on the 4th pitch, he'd have drawn the walk.

True, the behavior is commensurate with it but it is not specifically stated.

Serious Black: Let's hope the drunk driver wasn't suffering from affluenza at the time.


Given that it was a borrowed car and he was carting a small-time thief I seriously doubt it.  I do like that the owner of the car, seeing that dumbass had busted it up, called the police on him.  Good for her.

Yeah. They dont even know the past tense of drug.
"... he was hit and drugged by a car. "

somebody wanted this guy dead.

Yet another article that makes me think of the "Final Destination" movies.

The entire world population died each and every year in the mid-90s?

Yeah.  I think I've had this conversation with someone from Africa once.
African: "There's so much cancer in the US!  Hardly anyone in my country dies of cancer."
Me: "Well, yes... your average life expectancy is 48."

Every single person born in every single year of the '90s will die.

Still better than dying of cancer.

This wouldn't have happened if he gone the first time he was asked.
