I agree with you .

It would have more accurately read

"Man gets ticket *whilst* going 2mph below speed limit"

which then leaves the question:

"What did he get the ticket for?"


A while back, I saw one titled 'Man gets ticket for going 2 MPH UNDER the speed limit!'. So I went and read the article. What really happened was that the person was riding in the left lane, at less than the speed limit, and people were passing him on the right. So an LEO cited him for 'impeding traffic', which is quite different than getting a ticket for driving at any specific speed. '

As an aside the US has 5% of the world population yet 31% of the worlds non terrorist/warfare gun related deaths.


That is off-topic (since it is not an example), although worthy of response, and I have addressed it here:  http://www.zggtr.org/index.php?topic=20962.msg287542#msg287542

And it was great the way you hooked Max and as far as I could tell, you did not even use any bait! Maybe someone else 'primed' him and he just happened to be gobsmacked by your post?

Nope, I just have to do that thing called "work" and no need to respond until I could give it the time and attention it deserves... which you can see I [hopefully] did, just in the appropriate thread.   Hey- you know me, I am always up to a good argument :) :)

Quote
But on a serious note, I do agree with Max regarding shortening headlines and actually think it is far worse than he describes. We alter headlines until they are simply not true.

I get so angry at so-called "news" reports because they are so slanted, biased, terse, braindead, opinionated, and often just plain WRONG that I tend to not even want to consume any of it at all.  And it would be one thing if it were just incompetence, but it is usually very intentional to push a specific political agenda or at least to just sensationalize everything to death to get more "eyes."

This is America and the Internet- is there not a duck forum out there somewhere more worthy of your time?

Yep, just plain incorrect. It has gotten to the point where I really just do not believe anything and only occasionally chase (read: click) on a headline that grabs my interest for some reason but never the reason they published it the way that they did.

Real newspeople of a generation or two ago would be embarassed I think.

He's pokin his head (easy boys) back in but not posting as far as I can tell.  I'm starting to think this is a trolling maneuver just to stir things up.


With that being said, I'm not going to nuke it or modify the subject line.

please
just nuke it...
 it's a worthless thread, un followed by the o/p, has no relevant content.. and just make people do stoooopid responses.

an excercise kinda like how to keep a blond chick in suspense...

some folks are just a-holes.. for whatever reason... and post once.....
and some bite the worm, and get hooked...

Well, once everyone stops posting in this thread I may or may not lock it.  Depends how many I've had whilst making the decision.

Well if we can get away from V'Jim's drinking habits (as fascinating as that is) just for a minute.

I've done a little online research and I think I've found it, to both of you that are still interested ( :) ) here is a link.

(edit: Link removed at OP's request)
You'll need to click on the links on that page for more info.

So, because he answered my PM and the info these links provide, I'm of the opinion that, although it maybe in vain on his part,
I don't think it's BS or... what was that wonderful word..OH yes..."codswallop". Your opinions may continue to differ.

I now return you to V'Jim's drinking...and what else?....Ducks..yes I think it was Ducks.

I am not interested in brake lawsuits nor Jim's drinking (especially because last I knew, he was drinking gin & tonic to ward off any possible malaria attacks) but frankly I am hanging my head in shame a little bit about the continuing use of that word.... you know, cod-------. I mean, isn't that the stuff that a male cod provides to female..... I mean, this is a family forum, right? And is that not a 'bad word' to expose children to or even speak about in polite, mixed company? I would think that word would be at least an 'R' rated word, and depending on exactly what the cod were doi..... I mean, depending on where the cod------- ended up, would that not really carry an NC-17 rating?

Just sayin'.  Maybe you should look into that further Marty, you know, just be on the safe side?

I think you're getting confused somewhere Brian.


Codswallop is a perfectly good family friendly word and not a euphemism for anything :)


https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=codswallop&oq=codswallop&aqs=chrome..69i57.3870j0j7&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8


Cod Roe is eggs whilst Cod Sperm is used to fertilise the eggs (if they're not being eaten as a delicacy that is)

And neither Roe nor Sperm are R rated words :)




I am not interested in brake lawsuits nor Jim's drinking (especially because last I knew, he was drinking gin & tonic to ward off any possible malaria attacks) but frankly I am hanging my head in shame a little bit about the continuing use of that word.... you know, cod-------.
