After dropping some kids off at the pool.

Anytime.

while making sweet love to your headless mother's still-warm corpse?

btw, that "soccer match" was actually the college world series in omaha.

I heard the other day that kids are taking selfies at funerals with the corpses.

TFA: 6. While Free Climbing with No Safety Gear

The selfie-taker is clearly on lead. You can see the rope near his left shoe (apparently he wears Evolv Defy shoes) and his belayer below. Yes, he's on the sharp end of the rope but he's definitely on a rope. It's likely he took the photo right after hitting a clip or gear point.

I know what you're going for there, Techeblog, but if you don't know what you're talking about don't make shiat up.

Heh.  I came here to say the same thing.  It almost looks like he is top-roping.

UberDave: It almost looks like he is top-roping.


Nah, if he were on TR the rope from the belayer would be at a much steeper angle and we'd see the rope behind the climber's back, not by his ankle. He's definitely on lead but he's also definitely on gear.

On the other hand, Dean Potter might have some words about highball free-solos.

I would add: at your trial for pissing that cop when you were being arrested while taking a selfie.

I couldn't believe it when cameras started showing up at funerals back in the day (get off my lawn, etc.) - people wanted pictures with friends and relatives while they were all gathered together.

Who the hell wants to look at the pictures later and have those sad memories come flooding back?

Save your picture-taking for OUTSIDE the funeral home, at least.

Sheesh.

CSB, but I used to work in a photo lab, and you would be astounded at the number of people who would document the entire funeral with their disposables.  It was usually older people going to the funeral of a sister, etc.  Also, we once had a family who was probably Buddhist take pictures of the entire process, from the washing of the body to the pressing of the cremation button.

\she looks so lifelike, the old women would always say

What farking business is it of this moron where other people take pictures? This is exactly what's wrong with the internet these days, every idiot with a connection thinks they have the right to dictate how the world should behave and what they should like.

Huh, could probably make it to third base if she didn't take the selfie

That would make it almost worth it to have animatronics installed in my corpse plus a recording of Angus Scrimm saying "YOOUUUUU!!!!" that would activate when technical devices were activated near by. Just tilt up, point the finger, turn on the sound track.

The old couple with the turned over car should win one internettelex. That is how you turn a small FAIL into a major WIN!

And volcano dude has nothing on the Kraffts. You should watch their documentaries if you haven't already.
