inntheory: FYI nothing in the story indicates the driver was drunk.


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.

"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.

Aidan: wren337: sendtodave: bdub77: Death really had a hard-on for this guy.

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

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.

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.



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