Californian couple Sheyla and John Dowd, who work in Silicon Valley, were among those thrilled that the party is back so they could partake in it for the first time. Sheyla Dowd said she would watch while John tested his legs against the bulls and the other frantic sprinters.

Tech bro vs. 1000lbs of meat with spikes on it?  I want video follow up of this match.

1976: I was stationed in Spain. I went to the mini Bull Runs in small towns in Andalucia, where at most one bull was run through the streets in the morning and another in the afternoon, and decided I wanted to run at Pamplona. The Navy forbade running but I did it anyway. When it started, I was scared sheitless. I know I stepped on at least one fellow runner who had tripped and fallen. I did not care. I made it to the end and I'm glad I had the experience, but it is dangerous and was an adventure in my life. I still have my sash as a momento. Was it stupid? Probably. I never told anyone in the Navy what I'd done. As far as the Navy knew, I had taken a week of Leave to be a tourist in Madrid.

I'm all for morons getting gored, but I see no reason to freak out a bunch of innocent cattle. Just stab pointy sticks into the morons directly.

Running? I would much prefer to watch the bulls trying to teach humans how to fly...

They really need to put a Darwin mask on every bull and call it the running of the Darwins.

/ I would travel to see that.

Ugh, that was a wild time. Dudes handing out tabs of acid, drunk Australians throwing themselves off their hotel balconies expecting the crowd to catch them (didn't always work out as planned) locals pissing on tourists sleeping in the park.

Good times.

FTFA: "The rape case eventually led to a bill that makes consent a key determinant in sexual assault cases, freeing victims of having to prove that violence or intimidation was used against them."

So, Don't say 'yes' any time while your thiere, or you could get the horn.

Pamplona's population of some 200,000 balloons to nearly a million on peak days ...

Pamplona needs to chill on the balloon obsession. We all want our kids to have a fun birthday party but the world is running out of helium!

Marching implies that there is some order to it. I can assure there isn't

I really wish they would sharpen the horns on the bulls before the running, and before they are tortured to death in the arena. It is a barbaric "sport" that is no better than dog fighting and I wish great ill will on those who support it and I have a really good laugh every time I read about some matador getting gored. It is a shame that the bulls do not win more often.

The Mrs. and I did the last San Fermin Festival in Pamplona in 2019 for our anniversary. It was the best city-wide week long party I've ever been to. Makes New Orleans Mardi Gras look like a Disneyworld parade. We rented a balcony on the final stretch but I wish we had stayed on the street level. The bulls are run every day around noon and, from our stretch, were run at a moderate pace with guides. The biggest danger is getting trampled by young men running wildly while trying to push up to a bull to touch it. Most older people just stand back in the entryway of bars and restaurants and watch the mayhem run past. The activities before and after the running are just so wild and funny. And the city runs street scrubbing machines twice a day to keep it clean and not smelling of vomit like in New Orleans. Hope to do it again sometime. Well worth it.

But 'Papa' didn't use big words in his writings so -squee- literary darling.

I'm pretty sure bull runs are explicitly out of ground for a Darwin.

You left off the part where they pretty much assumed you did the bull run and didn't bother to call you out on it because it was less hassle for all involved.
