I'm hoping Schumi pulls through. On the circuit Schumi was an absolute beast. A machine solely focused on winning. But everything I've ever read and have seen of Schumacher outside of the racing world shows a different Michael; a generous and caring person. I remember when his body guard was killed in the Philippines Tsunami he donated 10 million dollars...I remember reading that was more than some countries! He adopts stray dogs he finds at races! And he's "keen on rock climbing" so I hope he pulls through because he seems like a generous, good human being.

The topic isn't so OT after all...

Locker, when you posted then deleted how this is big news in the climbing world with a bold TFPU. That really shows how much you care about the incident. I should have just let it go but I posted your link about another non-climbing legend. Then you decided to make this thread about arguing.
I am at fault too. Nowhere have I said it would have been better to die in a motor crash. My point was I am bummed to see a guy survive one of the deadliest sports and at such a young age fighting for his life cause of skiing. He is an adrenaline junkie, just like the rest of us and hopefully he continues to be.

Arthur C Clarke captured the sentiment well in the Martian Chronicles,

Its like finding out the Romans died of athlete's foot.

Fact checker and sci-fi fan here:
Martian Chronicles was Ray Bradbury.

Now everyone get back to telling Locker what an A-hole he is--as if he doesn't know!

Jeremy... cool, thanks for finding the climbing stuff.

The man has arms that look like he could crush it with the best of the 5.15 folks... one fit dude and he is humble about his place in the racing world.

I hope he is wearing his lucky sharks tooth... you can see it in the climbing potos.

hang in there....


EDIT.... Locker you changed your post... no one will understand what the heck is going on. Or why.

Locker.

You say:
"While dude's in the hospital or wherever he is...
100's of kids around the world just died of starvation..."

Children around the world starving... that's a worthy case... if this is one of your real concerns and a concern you want to address instead of the accident that at present occupies your attention, you could start and run a thread supporting the children...

You get our attention, Locker. That's the most important "what's-in-it-for-me" part of it. I guess you know. ;o)

Hey Locker, when ya gonna be back in this area, want to hang again, always enjoy yer company. I get ya, and if ya don't know you, ya might not get ya, that's what I like about you, not run of the mill. Schumey was one hellova driver, as you were saying, too bad it had to happen to him the way it did. It's all GUD Brother!

Thanks for those links This Just In. Schumi is unquestionably the greatest F1 driver of all time. The person who may have been even better was of course Ayrton Senna. Eerily, Shumi was in the car behind Senna when he had his fatal crash. And now the next great champion, fellow German Sebastian Vettel is poised to surpass the great Schumacher.

Hoping Schumi pulls through this.

And I thought the others were at least of average IQ...

I guess not...

Only half of them…assuming an unselected cross-section.
