Robin Williams was batshyt crazy doll__from the very beginning. It's absolutely amazing that he made it to age 63.
Actually the fact (your doppelganger) Keith Richards is still breathing is much more impressive.

the video shows that the guy killed by Stewart was an idiot who essentially committed suicide.....
Darwin's Law in action.....
Stewart wrecked at that same track a year prior, many were hospitalized one young lady critical. Stewart also wrecked last year breaking his leg and missing several races ruining his chances at a good championship finish. He should probably just stay away from the local sprint car tracks.

Years ago the great open wheel and stock car drivers would appear at nearby local tracks to satisfy sponsor needs and pick up a few buck$. Most dealt with the experience responsibly__putting on a show while letting the race unfold ahead.

Stewart isn't cut from that cloth__he's driven to win and that's not a good thing when he's running against bulletproof twenty year old's.

Perhaps you recall when Stewart would race in the Indy 500 then hop on a jet__fly to Charlotte and compete in the World 600. That too was both stupid and careless.

So maybe he's taken a lesson from this experience__but don't bet on it.

I guess Galt was never twenty?

BTW one of the best ever sprint car drivers was from SE Pennsylvania__Jan Opperman.

He wasn't bulletproof too.

Hypocrite much ??? Knoller — who always notes that presidents are never truly on vacation, given the demands of the job and the era of 24/7 communications — graciously shared his latest data with Yahoo News. So here it is:
As of Aug. 13, 2013, Obama is on his 15th vacation trip, covering all or part of 96 days total. He's spending this vacation in Martha's Vineyard with his family.
At the same point in his presidency — Aug. 13, 2005 — George W. Bush had made 51 visits to his ranch in tiny Crawford, Texas, totaling all or part of 335 days.(Note: Bush sometimes used the property to host world leaders.)
Bush also traveled seven times to his family’s oceanside compound in Kennebunkport, Maine, covering all or part of 26 days — bringing his total number of vacation days at this point in his presidency to 349 days.(335+26 doesn’t = 349, but remember the “all or part of” caveat
Baggers post to read their own lies.
Nonsense...... the President takes the job with him.
Trolls have time on their hands and tend to hate America and Americans

He appears not to be a troll__which makes him special among the right wingers here.

His math still sucks though.

I turned 61 yoa just prior to Obama's victory over the hapless John McCain and his brainless running mate Sarah Palin.

I was bewildered and stunned by what eight years of George W Bush had done to my business and my nest egg.

I was even more bewildered and stunned by the early comments on this topix thread.
