Is this the same guy that took a bullet last year when his Redneck buddy was shooting the beer can off his head?

No charges are expected against the driver.

Why in the world would they even feel like they have to put that in the story. I hope the driver sues the crap out of the idiot.

I’m curious; do you think alcohol played a role in his decision?

No charges are expected against the driver. The name of the man who was struck has not been released. He was in stable condition Monday night.

I can only assume they mean his physical condition is stable, mentally I gotta go with un stable

The victim and friends were discussing the game known as “Frogger” where an individual makes moves to jump out in front of objects and avoid being struck by them. 

Investigators say the victim yelled “go” and darted across the highway into oncoming traffic.

If you die with a quarter in your pocket, at least you can continue where you left off.

I remember Space Invaders. Whether you remember a particular game depends on the computer you started out with, I guess. I used a Commodore with a whopping 4 KB of memory! 1976! I played Lunar Lander and SI. You had to load them from cassette tapes.

LOL! “Out of memory error”

It’s a far cry from my little laptop with 4 GB.
