10Bears That happened a couple of years ago, not too far from me. A guy was trying to save his dog from a gator and the gator bit him. He saved the dog but died from the infection.

  I have to give the old guy some credit, he lived as long as he has despite forgetting to pay the brain bill and having service disconnected.

I wonder what he planned to do with it. Strangle it? Drag it down the street to release it farther away? Administer a sound thrashing?

No, rolling rocks UP a hill would be fucking retarded.

layla_wilson They didn't have hand-held electronic games and such when I was a kid, but if they did, I would have preferred rolling rocks down a hill. I wouldn't mind doing it now.
  This driving cars off a cliff is one of most mindless, inane, unproductive activities I've ever seen. I wish I could have been there to see it live.

Gerry1of1 some of the tourists should have their parental license revoked. About 6 months ago, a state park worker in Key Largo told me a little boy lost a finger a few days earlier, trying to feed a lizard. The parents thought it was tamed.

I spend a lot of time in areas occupied by alligators, and I frequently see people in the water. A local wildlife preserve gives guided tours, wading through the swamp. Fisherman in waders cast their lines standing in lakes loaded with gators. Not me though, some of those things are monsters. Even the the smaller ones can give you a deadly infection.

semichisam01 the framers of the Constitution were quite capable of an exact definition of their intentions, but did not always choose to be precise. I believe this was intentional, with the understanding that there would be interpretations later that would not violate the basic principles of the original Constitution. 
  I don’t think they were fuck-ups, they were more    educated and enlightened than others for their time; and recognized that most Americans were not.  
  Significant parts of the Constitution are open-ended, allowing for the interpretations that eventually followed. This is by design.
  If the Constitution had been written with all of the guarantees of liberty and representation that today are considered constitutional, I don't think it would have been well received by the average blacksmith, carpenter or farmer. They knew this. The laws on the books today providing equality for all are not an accident or a loophole, I believe it was foreseen over two hundred years ago.

Gerry1of1 It’s an expression a friend of mine from Ireland uses (a reference to mountain tea, maybe). It means he loved to drink too much. Why he opened a bar is a mystery...

daegog Black people were voting in several states from the beginning. The Constitution never prohibited minorities from voting.

  I saw the website, it’s a rambling load of bollocks. 
  Where are my reparations from the English, for the Irish famine and for the Great Expulsion from French Acadia? I don’t expect compensation, I’d never ask for it, and I’d be insulted by the offer.
