For a long time I stayed up way past my bedtime on Saturday nights like tonight to tune into a collection of duffuses who didn't know they were rescuing idiots like me. Sometimes heros do a lot more than their jobs.

I think Freddy is my personal hero. I am not of his bent but the man had balls til he died.

FTR, I've done stupider stuff. I just never claim "I didn't see that coming," or "I never would have thought...".
I just own it, admit that it was a stupid idea and that I paid the price and move on.

If by "weather is warming" you mean 'from subzero to the mid 20s' then you might be right.

Sadly, this is how the social safety net is biting us on the ass. Mother nature keeps trying to get rid of the idiots in our midst, and we keep getting in her way.

Some people in my town had to be rescued from a lake over the weekend. I was laying on my couch yesterday listening to sirens for like 20 straight minutes. Finally, I got up and looked out the window to make sure the entire town wasn't on fire. Nope, just some idiots who wandered out onto the ice in the lake. If only more people would do as I do, these things wouldn't happen.

If you walk out onto the ice and notice people who live on the shoreline are standing in their yards pointing at you, it's a good idea to double-time it off the ice.

Once again, Michiganians had to rescue Ohians.

agreed.

March is usually the snowiest month here. But weed is legal and our leader has awesome hair.

Did you fail to notice that it was Ohians being rescued? Something tells me someone DRTFA.

That was awesome for the case of me not fully appreciating what was going on at the time the first time it happened. And not from being too young, just the opposite. So awesome seeing Freddie fearlessly looking out into the crowd of 100,000 or whatever and giving it everything he's got.
