indeed

and of course, it's on youtube already, 300mph head on into a wall (yes,
the track design is stupid, but these kind of accidents don't happen
very often at all, it's only the second driver death ever in funny car,
last year being the first with Eric Medlen, and 8th overall in NHRA)

Did that track just run into a brick wall?  Where the heck was the 300 feet
of safety sand at the shutdown?

yeah, pretty much, there's sand, not 300ft though, and a catch net, not
much help at 300mph, think the TV guy in the lift shit his pants or what?

I was just wondering about that... can't tell if there is a guy up there
or if perhaps there's just a remote camera.

Since god is usually called upon when someone is very sick and gets credit
for a return to health, why doesn't god get credit for this death? Or isn't
it powerful enough?

Does being a misanthropic attention hound make you feel warm inside,
Jeff?  Seriously, what's the point of the above question?

     I imagine his point is that religions are arguably very silly.
He probably would have been better off making that point by mocking
football players who are so stupid that they think God is going to
help their team over the other guy's if they pray hard enough,
however, rather than bringing it up at a tragic time like this.

...in the minds of some.  Slapping at someone for their faith is
inarguably childish.

I'm an agnostic, but death, particularly tragic unexpected
death, is one of the times I really hope there is a God.

If you truly believed in your mythology as you proclaim, a death would be a
celebrated passage to a better place, like exiting Blacksburg.

The fact it isn't speaks volumes hypocrite.

<<Absolutely.>>

Oh, were you related to any of them? My condolences for your loss Bryan.
Will you be attending the funeral? I believe you can get 1/2 price fares
while flying bereavement on the air of the sense your own superiority.

Direct your tantrums elsewhere, son... I don't go around proclaiming
anything about what you call "mythology".  Those who try to evangelize
to everyone around them irritate me, in fact.
