I feel bad for all the people who got hurt. :S
Just because retards do something regularly doesn`t mean it`s a good idea. Even if they do it for thousands of years.
It`s almost like a mass loss of common sense.

That being said, I have nothing against the bull run, just your pompous claims of superiority.
But I do not owe a single thing to their grand (grand) childrens. Just like today`s Americans does not owe a single things to today`s French for helping them out to gain their independence."
It`s strange how you can hold history in such high regard, and only one comment later completely ignore it. As for not being able to "understand" such a long tradition, ridiculous. Really? How old are you? What exactly does it mean to you besides a number? You can only fathom a tradition in terms of your own lifetime and your own memories.
semi? Either it can or can`t. Anything in between and you get 2 headed kiddies.
Isn`t that area semi-life-sustainable now?"Yes UN says its safe to go back and live there now there rebuilding suppose to be done in 2016
Isn`t that area semi-life-sustainable now?
but Lads, all of you need history lessons, (and don`t go quoting wiki)
so yes we would have been speaking russian because if the yanks didn`t finance the D-Day landings well then yes we would have been screwed by the Russians
lets not forget that they might not have stopped the Nazisthere were Nazi rallies in Madison Sq Gardens:http://www.ushmm.org/museum/exhibit/focu... )
secondly Britian has had continuous govt since Charles II (and I`m Irish - the basterds) but then so has switzerland and sweden and no one tells russia what to do
Furthermore yanks test their manhood with guns, spaniards with bulls the irish with drink
what you dont do is insult there symbols
and for all the talk of freedom, you`d never be
Diving into a kiddie pool.Playing hot potato with a ticking grenade.Suntanning in Chernobyl.Running with the bulls.
I swear you stupid little children have absolutely NOTHING better to do than ARGUE! You can`t even realize for a moment that these differences are what make life interesting.
If we had it my way, you would be staring at endless pictures of kittens, drooling in your chairs completely brain dead. It`d keep most of you quiet while Pmarren`s fingers bled from typing "Cats = Suck" so much.
If you never experience any danger, your life will turn out pretty boring. No wonder why the average american is so unhappy, their lives are incredibly dull and monotonous. Maybe if we had something like this we`d all have something to look forward to and get excited about
The US were `happy` to join up with Russia knowing their communist political views before the Cold War, or receive Bin Laden`s support against... Russia... until he `became` a dangerous extremist.
Maybe it is because we try to solve our problems differently when the choice is there.
Freedom is great. It gives us all the option to have our own opinion.
You keep harping about how America is too young to understand. Get over yourselves. Europe could still be a world power if they hadn`t frittered it away with socialist and socialist-like agendas. Now that we have Obama, we`ll bew joining you soon. Then the world will have no one to protect it from the Islamofacists.
Deny all you want. But you need us Americans because we`ll do the job that you don`t have the stomach for anymore.
You are free to ignore the Cold War.
FYI, I do know American History probably way better that you know about Europe`s one. I recongize that there is much less matter to absorb for the US than Europe, I am not being smart or ironic there is simply less centuries to cover.
Settlers had a different attitude toward Natives, but they also are your closer parents. AS much as I value the History between the Pilgrims and the Natives Americans I still strongly think that celebrating Thanksgiving is a bit hyprocrit in many ways. At least South Dakota tried to make it up with the Native American Day, certainly late but it is never too late in these cases.
Oh so you`re claiming your country has lost more military servicemen than the rest of the world? it would appear that you are not aware of world war II & I then, and don`t claim that they were only doing it to save their own country because America also took part in the war to save their own country.
Anyway as for running of the bull, I would love to do it, the adrenaline rush would be amazing.Oh and I bet the lame-ass who tripped and caused that barely even got bruised.
To definitely go off-topic, Obama`s decisions and actions are internationally appreciated and recognized as a great move forward. It is almost sad that the G20 will mostly be focused on the economic crisis when many subjects would deserve greater attention in normal times. For the record, America, and Americans never appeared greater in recent times than the day Obama won the elections.
I realize that our current conflicts aren`t the same as the World Wars. Popular or not, though, they are being fought with an all volunteer army, and people aren`t even 100% behind it. Imagine the response our military would get if there was a cause that everyone believed in, like defending Europe from an invasion from a force like the Nazis. If a European country needed our help defending their country from invasion, we`d have your backs in a second, and I think you`d be suprised by the willingness of our men and women to risk their lives for any of you, and we hope you`d do the same for us.
I think Americans come across as bullies and ungrateful. But behind the bravado, I think most US citizens have a respect for our European ancestory and really do want to have good relationships with the people of Europe.
The posters in this thread may not understand, some may be ignorant. But you take the cake.
And quit with the "they deserve to be trampled" B.S. I would say it`s their own fault, but that`s different than "deserving it." Like I said, it`s our own fault if we die in a car accident because we chose to ride in the car, but that doesn`t mean we "deserve" to die in a car crash. It`s just a risk we took.
I have an immense respect, and a profound gratefulness to those who went to Europe and lost their lives to free it up from Nazi Germany.
But I do not owe a single thing to their grand (grand) childrens. Just like today`s Americans does not owe a single things to today`s French for helping them out to gain their independence.
I apologize for any US pussy-type comments. Your right. It is a tradition of fraternity and bravery, safe or not. We have WAY too many laws aimed at keeping our public safe, an therefore, have a hard time having fun. If people want to run with the bulls as an act of bravery, awesome. If I want to light a M-80 firecracker, that should be my own choice.
But don`t say we`re not brave. And don`t say "no offense" and then say you think we`re pussies. If you think we`re pussies just say it. But our men and women have done more acts of bravery and lost more lives fighting to save OTHER people`s countries than the rest of the world combined. And in the future, we`ll keep helping countries that need us to risk our lives to help them, even if they call us pussies.
Tell me about US` 240 year old tradition... Thanksgiving? In Europe, we don`t celebrate the day people gave us food if we slaughtered them right after.
Pampelona might be the most famous, and by far the most impressive, and the largest. For the records, in a century only 10 deaths are reported with a run every morning for 8 days in a row.
As much as you might think it is stupid and dangerous, these are the celebration of ancestral traditions that forge the identity of Spain, as well as the South of France. You are by no mean in position to judge them, or people who take part of it.
Again, I wish the US had proper History and ancestral traditions - it would help you to understand. I know it`s probably too much to ask for a country with less than 240 years of history....
It`s like... people pulp.
Sometime I wish the US had proper history and traditions, so you might understand something at others people`s ones. "
Oh, we call our own people doing stupid things, stupid. Why should we give you a pass?
Tradition is fine, but don`t expect us to agree with it. Just because you`ve dons something so monumentally retarded for so long doesn`t make it any less foolish.
We have proper history and tradition. Our tradition is to call it like we see it.
These are tradition, it ran for decades and decades. How do you dare judging, or insulting this?
I see more bravoury, and more fraternity in the bull run, that you will ever see in the US -ever.
You call it stupidity, how do you feel about the thousands of idiots (mostly americans) attempting ludicrously retarded and pointless stunts every months?
Sometime I wish the US had proper history and traditions, so you might understand something at others people`s ones.
Chuck: How about putting itching powder in grandma`s bra?
Paul: Not dangerous enough.
Chuck: We can do heroine with random used needles.
Paul: Nut public enough.
Chuck: So you want big crowds AND danger huh? I`ve got it! We can set some bulls free in streets and let them stampede us!!!
LMAO @ guy crossing the street.
I am. Every drating one of those morons deserved what they got. It`s a stupid thing to do and I don`t feel sorry for them at all. Stay away from the bulls and leave them the hell alone. I wouldn`t have felt bad at all if any of them died after such a moronic spectacle. Maybe next time they`ll think twice before doing something so pathetically stupid.
Hey, I`d have a lot less of a problem if they conducted this without a slaughter at the end. It`s one thing to "run" the bulls; and then, another to slaughter an animal for food. But, through fear and obstacles, to corral them to their deaths is obscene.
Glad to be of service.
backfat, don`t be disgusted, its the internet, you hafto expect these thigns :D
i liked the part when the guy crossed the street.ouch!
