    Re: Vikings to buy 4 blocks by Dome

    Great idea.
    Lets roll the grass out into sub zero temps so it can get some sun.
    Then we can roll the sheet of ice back in to play on.

    The new artifical turf is almost like grass.
    Its not astroturf anymore.
    The new stuff is called fieldturf.

    Its what we now have in the dome.
    Most players seem to really like it.

    Here is a list of the higher profile teams that have it installed now.

    Wilf is like the freaking Emperor in Star Wars.
    Eventually he will own everything he needs to practically force them into agreeing.

    Not to mention the MENTAL HEALTH of others involved in an accident.
    People only think about the people who get tossed from their cars - but what of the mental injury to other survivors or accident participants who have to bear the scar of the horrible injuries or death to the dumbass who didn't wear a seatbelt?
    They carry that pain with them, even if it's not physically visible.

    Your heart bleeds more than most liberals I've ever met.

    This is BS.
    Part of the duty of laws is to protect the citizenry.
    That's not only to protect the citizenry from outside threats, but also from themselves.
    Seatbelt laws are no different from speed limits, red lights and other measures to protect drivers from hurting themselves while they treat the 2000-pound projectile in which they are driving as if it's their living room recliner.

    =Z=
    The difference is that if you're driving recklessly, YOU can kill OTHER people.
    If you're not wearing a seatbelt, you'll only kill yourself.

    Honestly, I don't need government telling me what I need.
    Bike helmets?
    Please.
    I wear seatbelts because I don't want to pulp my head on the windshield, and I wear helmets so that my skull doesn't get Roethlisbergered.
    However, if you don't want to wear a seatbelt or helmet, nobody should be able to tell you otherwise.

    Pretty soon, they'll pass laws that make me wear condoms when I attack the 'ole lady.
    Enough is enough.

    Re: Vikings to buy 4 blocks by Dome

    I'm willing to pay extra on car insurance.
    Doesn't bother me that much at all.
    Hell, I'm even looking at buying some hybrid econ-o-mobile, and I'm a guy who jumps out of airplanes and blows shit up professionally.

    You know, I strongly dislike it when laws restricting my personal freedom are taken away while I'm deployed to Iraq.
    There's something...wrong...about it.

    My wife is a paramedic instructor, and has been in that line of work for a long time.
    I'm an EMT-B myself, and a bunch of my friends are 18-Ds, or SF Medics.
    I know, intimitely, the dangers of not wearing a seatbelt or helmet.
    However, I feel quite STRONGLY that those decisions should be made on an individual basis, by the person getting in the car.

    I mean, it's getting to be too much.

    Christopher Reeves did a cheetah flip off a horse, ate shit and broke his neck.
    Should we have to have saddlebelts?!
