Those of you supporting the Peruvians are really funny.

One thing about the Drudge report that healeyje posted that rings true to my experience overseas was that the American consulate was uninterested in helping until the news media and senators got involved. Ordinary tax paying citizens don't count for much at those places in my experience.

Riley, the nurse detective, do you 'believe' Americans landed on the moon?

Is that light the end of the tunnel or a train?

Well I believe Americans have landed on the moon. But they weren't beat up by any locals so you may not have heard about it.

This thread is STILL here? I can't believe I clicked.. I really can't believe I'm posting.

I'm totally over it at this point and gotta go with DMT ...

Who gives a sh#t who to believe? ... Belief is irrelevant.

DMT


PS:


Riley my friend.. in my experience vegetarian diets turn most people into passive tree-hugging wankers. The only thing vegetarians get this riled up about is GMO's. Just admit it.. you've been filching bacon and sirloin on the side and washing it down with that Mountain Dew(?) you used to drink by the case ;) That or is it Texas living..? That place is evil.. evil I tell you. It's flat and full of rednecks. Come back to Cali Riley. I'll buy you a tofu burger and take you climbing at the beach. Come back before it's too late... :)

Explain. Why is it funny to support the people who live there and had their lives interrupted by foreigners who didn't speak the language and refused to show any ID? You'd rather take the side of the "extreme adventurers" who boldly vacationed in another country, figuring it would be fine if they knew nothing about the area, the language, or the people?

Is there any windshield experts that can tell if the two impacts on the photo are outward(drunken heads) or inward(crazed locals). It is odd that such impact never left much damage on the girl who would have hit your skull.
Who to believe DMT, this is fun!

I agree with Werner. The damages look to have originated from the outside.

The one on the driver's side is from a rock. But look at the other one... clearly a much broader object caused the one in the middle. I'm guessing it was the dude's head. It all makes sense... a chick was driving (which is why they ended up in the ditch). The dude was sitting in the back, between the seats and bloodied his head when he hit the glass, then banged his jaw against the dash or other person's head.



Sad that it all could have been avoided with a little common courtesy and common sense.

The middle one looks to have an outside impact mark just like the drivers side to me.

It would be wise, if a Blue Ribbon panel (Pabst does not qualify) were formed and sent down there posthaste to get to the bottom of this important matter once and for all.

Dinner and companionship will be provided gratis.



Addendum: Licky may not serve.

Hence the phrase "looks like". Although I have seen a few broken windows in my time.. I swear I never broke any of em! ;)

rock: high density fractures near point of impact approximately twice the size of the rock, tightly spaced concentric rings


head: lower fracture density near point of impact gradually becoming less dense away from the point of impact, wider spacing between concentric rings

Aah Jim good point. And would there not be airbags gone off too if it was heads?
This is so Wings of Steel.

Jan: American consulate was uninterested in helping...

Hey, that's patently untrue. When I was in jail in Tokyo they came right over with the latest copy of Newsweek. Unfortunately, I wasn't in it so I never saw or heard from them again.
