... which seems odd to me; death seems pretty natural.
For someone who have lived a long life. Certainly death is inevitable for all. However, to see someone commit suicide or to watch someone make a bad decision resulting in death can be traumatizing. I know of some locomotive engineers whose trains crashed into cars killing the occupants. They were helpless to stop the train because of the inertia. Some people apparently just froze in panic, and didn't try to escape, just before the train hit. Those guys were pretty devastated, but they still went back to work after some time off.

It was a very ugly scene and there was nothing natural about it. Anyway, not to derail the thread too much, did anyone else like the Flying Car cartoon in the Jet group? That cracked me up!!! It sounds so much like a typical HS nerd conversation...

Since we're on this morbid subject, I'll point out that, versus GhostRider, there is simply no contest.

Ghost Rider is the name of a motorcycle stunt rider (or a group of riders, depending on sources), based in Stockholm, Sweden. He stars in a number of motorcycle movies comprising journeys through uncontrolled and unstaged roads and highways at obviously highly illegal speeds. One of the most notorious of these journeys is the "Uppsala Run" in Ghost Rider: The Final Ride, 2002. This trip covers 68 km of continuous travel from Stockholm to Uppsala in less than 15 minutes (this equates to an average speed 270 km/h (168 mph) over the period) on standard traffic laden highways.
According to wikipedia, he's a stunt driver who beat the world wheelie speed record, and who died in 2005, it is absolutely no wonder.

Here's his Uppsala Run.

Agreed!!! He is lucky to have survived once. If this was [is] not a unique event, then he will almost certainly end up as meatloaf and ketchup.
but will anyone actually feel sorry for him?

I think this one surely classifies as a classic!

I think I got this off of here, but anyway, it deserves a rerun, sorry if someones already put it up, it's just excellent.

Oh and this is quite entertaining too.

Obviously staged but it's still pretty impresive.

Tai Jitsu is ninjitsu's martial art, as you can see, alot of the moves are intended to break limbs or even blind or kill. Which is probably why you wont see it on extreme fighting, in fact the most deadly types don't even fight amongst themselves for sport, Tai jitsu in most forms is free form, whatever works works. The FSM approves

The fight sequences in the Borne identity are a sort of Tai jitsu, in fact there completely free form.

Tai jitsu is used by many covert agencies.

EDIT: just like in the movies

Tony vs Paul reminded me of a 1967 short called "Vicious Cycles". Imagine my surprise to find that someone had posted it on YouTube. I wonder if it is a copyright violation.

Jan Smithers was the most beautiful woman on television, and WKRP's major draw. Loni Anderson was a running joke.

Heres a clip of a man that has the honour of being called the best stand up comedian in the UK. This is a 10 minute section from his 90's comedian set.

Stewart Lee - 90's Comedian

You perhaps have to know who Joe Pasquale is.

Also the following is from his stand up comedian set. (warning there is a swear word in there if you're easily offended)

Stewart Lee - Stand up Comedian

And finally a sketch from Fist of Fun (I think) in the mid nineties by Stewart Lee.

Hope you enjoy
