You might be interested in a new product that is now on the market . I think it's called a sprinkler.

They've come with a vengeance the last week. Making up for lost time it appears. You can't go out in the garden right now. I had about 20 of them on one arm in an instant.

They aren't big enough or strong enough yet but in a few days you won't be able to go out much in the evening.

Deck was OK for awhile but they sussed me out..Soon as one gets wind they must call their friends..

The Tony Stewart-Kevin Ward situation is so ****ed up. It's simply mind boggling that it actually happened.

No doubt. All of the advertising by the industry, especially the stuff by "Citizens For The Oil Sands" (LOL, really) that campaign on GHG emissions and completely ignore the real environmental impact of the process, really pisses me off. Ads in my twitter feed, with dozens of pro-O&G comments praising just how environmentally friendly it is. I just can't take it.

Just like how NOBODY in government knew about Redford's luxury lifestyle. All these cabinet ministers, aides, etc., and nobody knew! Nobody! And no one else is doing the same! Let's just bury her before the opposition can, and let our bad reputation die with her. She's a bad woman! Burn the witch! Vote PC in 2016!

Heard that on the radio this morning then looked it up.

WTF is right. Althought I'm honestly surprised it doesn't happen more often...

Saw the video yesterday. From what I have read about Stewart it wouldn't surprise me if there was intent in the "accident." But what the hell was the kid thinking walking out into the middle of the racetrack to try and start something with Stewart wile the race was still going on.

Maybe someone more knowledgeable with racing can answer this but I thought there was suppose to be a caution flag whenever someone crashes or goes into a wall.

Hard to judge if that was intentional or not, but it as incredibly stupid by Ward to walk out like that. Even the car before Stewart nearly missed him, but it seems like Stewart's car does fishtail a little before hitting him. Could be him panicking after not seeing Ward immediately and only at last second, or it could be intentional.

Stewart once said in the heat of the moment that he would run someone over the next opportunity. Not this guy, but someone else. I'm convinced this was unintentional, but he's also a hothead.

Here's a video of the Stewart Ward incident.

Weirdest thing I've ever seen to be honest.

Question for the campers out there!

Looking to go for just one night, somewhere not to far from Edmonton. I'm looking for someplace that has some moderately secluded campsites for tents. I'm really not a fan of having my neighbors right on top of me 15 feet away. Totally defeats the purpose in my mind, but I'm not really sure where to go.

Haha.

But equally as important. I am looking for a bit more of the "wilderness" experience and less of the "RV 15 feet away on both sides" experience.

wasn't it in the near dark with a guy wearing black? could have been hard to see the guy. especially if there was another race car ahead of stewart, blocking his view.
not smart of ward to do that while the race is still on.

that being said, a race guy on espn said that stewart may have intentionally fishtailed his car to scare the guy, and it went bad.
if that turns out to be true there would be a manslaughter charge, I suppose.
hope it was just a bad accident.

Been a long time since I followed racing much but isn't it typical for an accident to involve a yellow flag where the drivers slow down considerably if not stop to allow driver to get safely away from the wreck?

This accident occurred on outer wall which is a problem given driver has to get across track to reach infield.

The one sitting beside me was annoying with his commentary.

Also doesn't create the same atmosphere that more energetic audiences provide.

It wasn't that bad, but Edmonton has had better crowds.

Feels silly that I'm one of the few cheering in my section.
