Stupid Horse-Fighting in China


I understand wild horses fighting to the death over a female. I don’t like it but I get it. When that form of nature calls…but I just don’t get what the people in the audience below are thinking. size-full wp-image-449″ />
“Horse-Fighting In Rongshui
(CHINA OUT) Two stallions confront each other at a horse fighting contest on February 18, 2011 in Rongshui, Guangxi Province of China. More than 30 horses from surrounding regions take part in the traditional activity of the Lantern festival. (February 17, 2011 – Photo by ChinaFotoPress/Getty Images AsiaPac)”

The horses ‘take part’? That implies a voluntary action and there’s nothing voluntary about being tied and dragged along against your will, inside a corral surrounded by masses of people and a fence that prevents your escape. Sounds like fun for the horse?

I didn’t even know that this kind of thing existed, that people could be this stupid.

Ahhh, sweet revenge!!

Strange Lakes

This is something I’ve never heard of – tar lakes. Interesting, although I would not want to build a house near one.

Cops: Man tried to use $1M bill at NC Walmart

 

LEXINGTON, N.C. (AP) — Do you have change for a million-dollar bill?

Police say a North Carolina man insisted his million-dollar note was real when he was buying $476 worth of items at a Walmart.

Investigators told the Winston-Salem Journal (http://bit.ly/u7ZrEN ) that 53-year-old Michael Fuller tried to buy a vacuum cleaner, a microwave oven and other items. Store employees called police after his insistence that the bill was legit, and Fuller was arrested.

The largest bill in circulation is $100. The government stopped making bills of up to $10,000 in 1969.

Fuller was charged with attempting to obtain property by false pretense and uttering a forged instrument. He is in jail on a $17,500 bond, and it isn’t clear if he has an attorney. He is scheduled to be in court Tuesday
