This one's from 2011 and it's more terrible than Thork and Markjo combined.

I don't even care to find out what you're doing wrong, but I'm sure you're doing something wrong.

That's a bit more depressing than what I had in mind.
This thread is so sad and neglected.

There's already this precise thread in Angry Ranting. You've even posted in it.
I know. It turned into a gun rant so I was going to make my own thread. Since it's in Angry Ranting I'm certain no one will take it seriously and no one has posted anymore articles there.

Plus, this one isn't necessarily about death.

No.

This guy called ahead to reserve what he was stealing.

When I worked at a GameStop for 3 months around Christmas we had people steal consoles on 2 different occasions. One was because one of the leads was working alone and left a 360 on the counter before going to the back room. The second was a display with no cables.

That was wrong of him, but this guy was actually smart for a criminal.  Not like the guy who, while attempting to rob a jewelry store, substitued a sock for a ski mask then walked gun-in-hand into a gun store.

If you're a climber/free-runner, you're in very little danger of anything happening to you in those situations.

That guy's an idiot.

Doesn't seem like it's any more dangerous than regular rock climbing. They're just holding on: so long as they know what they're doing, I don't see the big deal. I will say that the balancing acts freaked me out, but that's just tight rope walking. Lots of people do it.
That's how far the horizon is, not how far you can see.

I saw that earlier.

The match itself was comedy. Man Utd ended up losing to Sunderland on penalties and of the 10 taken, only 3 went in.
