2003-03-29 08:36:41 AM  
Lesson was "arm yourself"?
2003-03-29 08:36:44 AM  
Oh crap.. the second one.
2003-03-29 08:36:59 AM  
Did the jogger learn that it is important to carry a gun when jogging? Good.
2003-03-29 08:37:00 AM  
or are you?
2003-03-29 08:37:45 AM  
Well I've never understood what compels drivers to flip me off while I'm running or biking and not in their way at all, but it happens every now again. I've always returned the favor... I'd think it would be rare to find a guy with the combination of balls & stupidity to actually attack you for something that trivial.

GratefulDead, ya beat me to it. I stopped to read the article. When it says the driver "abused" the jogger does that mean he groped him or something?
2003-03-29 08:39:14 AM  
And that's why I jog in the woods, folks.

I learned a long time ago that if you just act like a lunatic most people will leave you alone...bettin' if he had wildly smiled and waved back these guys would have sped off quickly.

I don't know, but I'm the first one to comment, again.

Should read:

I don't know, but I'm the first one to announce to everyone who reads the comments section that I'm a jack ass.
2003-03-29 08:41:22 AM  
I wonder if the jogger asked him how much HP he gets from all those stickers.
2003-03-29 08:41:23 AM  
What's a commadore like a car or somthing?
2003-03-29 08:42:23 AM  
i've learned my lesson. I done never trust no asian appearin' pyscho.

Mtrans - I was bored and looking at profiles for research, yeah research, anyway, does that woman in your profile picture have 3 legs?
2003-03-29 08:43:01 AM  
I had a Commodore 16. It was my first computer. Ah, the memories...

Bah, foiled by html again...

does that woman in your profile picture have 3 legs?

/Goes to check it out

Whoah! She actually has four legs! And two heads! And four arms!

Oh, wait, there's two women there.
2003-03-29 08:48:16 AM  
I was trying to figure out that fourth possible leg, didn't notice the back of the head of the 2nd girl, but i only see one arm, very very strange picture. but looks fun, just jealous i guess.
2003-03-29 08:48:16 AM  
On another note...

Mtrans you have that series of pics for us yet?

*goes jogging*

But this whole 'carry a gun' thing is silly. My usual bike route is through as ghetto of a place as you'll ever find. Then it's through 8 miles of lower/middle-class black areas where I see another white person maybe once in every 5 trips. And I really feel like I'm more likely to encounter trouble from pedestrians/drivers when I'm in a white neighborhood.
Attacks are going to randomly occur on a very low frequency, and it's usually not who gun-carriers think (i.e. black people). Sure, having a gun makes sense for that one guy in a million who gets attacked... but for everyone else it's just asking for trouble, if for nothing else then that's it's usually illegal to carry a concealed weapon.
2003-03-29 08:53:15 AM  
I got flipped off by a guy driving a VIC-20 one day!
2003-03-29 08:53:33 AM  
"Jooger learns and important lesson":

Yeah. People of "ASIAN appearance" CANNOT DRIVE!
2003-03-29 08:54:54 AM  
See, and everyone thought it was just Los Angles. It's world wide baby!
2003-03-29 08:56:03 AM  
Yay. I needed another article like this to top up my KNIFING ASIANS STEREOTYPE beliefs.

All asians want to knife me <=D

I wish fark comments were threaded.
2003-03-29 08:56:41 AM  
Who said anything about blacks people being more prone to attack joggers, Knucklebreather?
2003-03-29 08:57:54 AM  
I mean "black people." See, that's how much your comment bewildered me.
2003-03-29 09:00:04 AM  
Like tossing a match on a pile of oily rags

Don't hate the player, hate the OS.

CubMistress: Most people who carry guns? See Bowling For Columbine. But just a quick demonstration... you're jogging on a sidewalk and 2 black guys in street clothes are standing on the corner casually watching you approach. Really put yourself in the situation. Would most people even see the above the situation as likely to be dangerous if I'd said it was 2 white guys on the corner?
2003-03-29 09:04:34 AM  
Three rules to live by

1) Never flip off someone you can't beat up
2) Never bring a fist to a knife fight
3) Never, ever jog.
2003-03-29 09:06:06 AM  
4) And alyways, ALWAYS, e-mail Strongbad
2003-03-29 09:07:22 AM  
Hey Knuckle, nice loaded question. Here's one for you, please answer yes or no: Have you stopped molesting teenage boys?

Get the point?

5) Learn Spanglish
2003-03-29 09:09:22 AM  
Was the car riced out?
2003-03-29 09:09:33 AM  
JOHNDX I found the pics yesterday (some missing) and I'm going to scan them at a friend's house today (my scanner's farked). I'll have them up tomorrow on my crappy little website. Or maybe 3horn will have them up on his.

This could be a good photoshop op.
2003-03-29 09:10:12 AM  
Lets get off sterotyping here folks. This particular situation happens to be Asian, but anyone can commit road rage. Let's not start a flame war this early.
2003-03-29 09:11:11 AM  
I always jog at night, after work, like around 9 p.m. In a not-to-well-lit park, wearing black clothes, a black t-shirt and black shoes. Yes, I make ppl shiat themselves.
2003-03-29 09:12:44 AM  
Knucklebreather, Electroshock therapy only sounds scary. And if you are basing your opinions of social problems on Bowling for Columbine, you should really look into it.

And yes, the two young white guys would make me a touch nervous, too. Stress "young."
2003-03-29 09:12:54 AM  
Outshined: I don't see how asking 'Are you afraid of the average black person?' is a trick question, where any answer you give is wrong.

What kind of idiot flips off a commodore filled with ninjas?
2003-03-29 09:14:50 AM  
The only stereotyping lesson that we CAN LEARN from this article is by reading the passage from the article, BELOW.

"The only distinguishing feature of the commodore was a "No Fear" sticker on its back window."

And the lesson is...
Anyone with a "No Fear" sticker in his window is a stupid knucklehead who is insecure about his penis size.
2003-03-29 09:14:50 AM  
I'm not basing my social opinions of Bowling for Columbine, it just sort of expresses some of them in a convenient form that most people are familiar with.
Just calling me crazy isn't a very coherent argument. Do you deny that you'd get more nervous it was two black guys?
2003-03-29 09:15:23 AM  
I can't help but break into a serious fit of laughter when I hear about violent Asians. I just can't take it seriously.

I can imagine them driving off and one of the hooligans saying "WE SHOW HIM LESSON, WE TEACH HIM GOOD!!!!11ONEONE ^__________^", followed by a chorus of "kekekeke" that could echoed for miles.
2003-03-29 09:15:42 AM  
The more important question is whether this could have happen with a Falcon.

2003-03-29 09:16:21 AM  
Aren't all Asians insecure about their penis sizes?

/wild generalization
2003-03-29 09:17:06 AM  
Maru: Please don't do that! I know I'm a few thousand miles away from you, but stealth runs should be far away from rec joggers.

If you know you're going to see someone on your trail, at least wear reflectors. It's common courtesy.
