I highjacked this article from another BLASPHEMY! forum. This guy says what we have all thought at one time or another. Enjoy.

Well said, especially the second-to-last paragraph.

Having "them" get their head out of their A$$ would make our journey's a lot safer.

Some of the comments are hilarious. There are some great come back lines.

When I hear the friend of friend stories I like to reply with. "My uncle on my Mother's side, twice removed, third wife's second oldest illegitimate son was doing a hand stand on the handle bars of KZ 1000 when a wasp stung him on his testicale and he fell over. The guy in the monster Mudder Truck behind him , who was video taping the stunt, ran over him and turned him to Road Pizza."
When they look at you all amazed reply "It's self cleaning gene pool." And walk off. They have no idea you just made fun of them

Life is to be Lived!

I have no idea why people would rather die in a convalescent hospital wearing adult diapers after their spouse has just spent all their retirement money on keeping them sorta alive for a few months/years more.
Now there's a reality check!
I just usually think this thought to myself as it's pretty harsh for the general public to digest, but you guys can take it.

Agreed!

I just posted the entire thing on fb for all my "friends" to read. I doubt they'll take the time but maybe just one will.

Thanks for sharing.
