    Default Some Spaniards Are Not Too Bright

    Life's not the breaths you take, the breathing in and out that gets you through the day ain't what it's all about. It's the moments that take your breath away.

    That was unbelievable! Whatever "festival" they are having makes the running of the bulls look like a gathering of PhDs. Two things struck me in watching the vid. First, the remarkable agility and strength of the bulls (O.K., maybe not so agile on wet cobblestone). Secondly, it seemed like many of the bulls were being playful. They would chase and knock someone down, or throw them, but for the most part they didn't savage the idiot once the bull had him down. Maybe it has to do with a target-rich environment, but to me it looked like the bulls were playing.

    I like extreme sports, but I like to at least have a fighting chance. Face to face with an annoyed bull seems unfair.

    If you didn't notice, a second video follows when the first one ends.

    That was very entertaining stuff. Those people are nuts!

    You know, we could do something similar. Why don't we start the Freeway Fiesta! We can have people line up on Interstate 5, and at the sound of the trumpet they begin running. A few minutes later we turn the cars loose. Sounds like fun, doesn't it? Think of the excitement, the drama, the TV rights!

    I noticed, but I got the gist in the first minute or so. Seeing people get life changing injuries (when you have recently been thru what happens after that) gets old really quick.

    All right. Be honest. How many of you were rooting for the bull? I know I was.
