With out a doubt. It was a navigational hazard, and should have been marked with reflective tape or something.

When I think about how low that wire had to be hanging, on a river where there was a sanctioned fishing tournament, I am inclined to suspect extreme negligence and that there could be a big lawsuit.

I'm glad it struck your funny bone! Bob has good stories.
Like when he was a HS senior, his parents went out of town for the weekend. Bob had all his buddies over to swim in the lake and grill out for the weekend.
A few nights later, bob's dad BLEW A GASKET when he went down to the deep freeze to get steaks and discovered that bob and his buddies had cleaned out all the meat -- like, the side of beef that was in the freezer!
he sounds like my brother. as a teen he would go out to this club and if not begging food
from campers , he would go to the snack shack and charge food. dad would come out and get hit with the tab. kids!! course I later found out what my kid was doing at the beach while I was in the trailer playing yahtzee and drinking wine.

Which reminds me..."Mud" and "Killer Joe": two Matthew McConaughey movies that completely redeem him for all the sh1t movies you've seen him in. Recommend.

I have seen it. It is a movie that would be more "fun" to be watched in a group where you can all make fun of the bad acting and ridiculous dialogue. The guy from 902010 should stick to being a male stripper, he can't act worth a crap.

Worse acting and dialogue then any porn movie. But, like watching a train wreck you just have to watch. The ending was the best movie ending I've ever seen.

Don't know when it will be on again. It was so popular it's being shown for one night in a theater in Chicago, maybe this weekend. Might become a cult classic. They're doing one in New York and asking for ideas.

Oh, we have it recorded. He's just waiting for the right time to spring it on me. He's already watched it.

Dear God, it was like a cheesy porno movie but without the porn. I was laughing while I was crying at not only its suckiness, but the fact I wasted an afternoon to watch it.

There are doing a single showing in movie theaters in August for people who can't get it on their cable service.
No info on whether it will be a double feature with Snakes on a Plane.

Sharknado is a movie? I thought it was something like Shark Week only on another channel.(just based on the name)

Things which will no longer be permitted t be yelled at English soccer aka football matches, presumably from the players rather than the fans, but still:

The list included terms such as "n****r", "queen", "don't be a woman," "cripple" as well as "princess"and "man up".

"Lady-boy" appears under both Gender and Sexual Orientation [insults which are now forbidden], but "she-man" is only under Gender. Typical anti-she man bias."

(Dog-are you moonlighting?)

Man up?

are you sure you don't mean L2. the guy is obnoxious. if anything, the kids should say "thanks, dad", and that's it.
and does he ever say thanks to his wife? I wonder.

"I know you just had a 10 pound kid naturally, and are probably crapping out of your hooha on occasion, but I'm coming over to see the new spawn. Have some Strongbow on ice ready for me, and a nice meat and cheese tray prepped, mkay?"
