I don't really know what that is supposed to mean. Jaywalking and drunk driving are illegal for the exact same reason you are endangering yourself and those around you. The only reason drunk driving would be more likely to cause an accident is the general duration of time spent comparatively. If you were running across streets for 30 minutes straight you would probably be just as likely to cause an accident.

Ok judge dredd. Because walking across an empty street in full senses while having visibility for miles is the same as driving a quarter ton lump of steel moving at 100 mph with reaction time slowed to a quarter of usual.

Jaywalking can be bad depending on the situation (blind bends, bad weather etc.) but is generally harmless if the person is careful and in full senses. Most traffic laws allow crossing the streets as normal based on common sense and precaution if there is no crossing available for a good distance. Drunk driving is FAR more dangerous and ALWAYS illegal.

They have people with real statistics in front of them when they draft laws and penalties for these things you know, not absurd equalization of all crimes big and small.

Good job making pointless and worthless posts. How are instances of crossing streets legally and under perfect visual circumstances relevant to a discussion where that is not so?

We are talking about the burden of blame when an accident occurs due to illegal actions not when nothing happens due to legal actions.

Because the action is the exact same when it's legal and illegal. You look both ways and cross with common sense. The fact that there is a pedestrian crossing light doesn't suddenly make it a felony, it makes it a minor offense and still not that dangerous.

You mentioned nothing about jaywalking drunk, just jaywalking period and compared it to driving DRUNK. Obviously that's idiotic.

Good thing our lawmakers aren't idiots, so there is only a minor fine for Jaywalking if that, usually it's just a mild warning compared to the heavy penalties for drunk driving. But of course the great osmium with his nazi opinions knows better.

Driving drunk is fundamentally different than driving sober, unlike jaywalking at a light or legally crossing the road in the absence of a light which are separated only by technicalities.

It's a driver's responsponsibility to be ready for anything that happens. Whether it be a dog running on the road, someone walking across the street or truck full of manure up ahead as he is chasing Marty McFly, the driver has to be ready for the safety of others. He's the one in control of the high speed metal wrecking machine.

In the UK and here, Ireland, in the majority of the areas there is no rules on J Walking. I know in Dublin there are certain laws on the main streets but in general, I can cross the road anywhere. I said that I'm glad I'm not American because you or whoever posted's attitude was "Well, that small fragile human being was no match for the high speed car, mwuhahahaha". Life > Driving Rules.

This ia getting even more fun.

Silva is going to destroy chael. That's my guess. I doubt he will allow him to keep the entire fight on the ground trying to grind a result like he did last time. The question is how much real damage will Silva do to chael before the fight is over.

Breaking, faces, lags, teeth will all be warranted after two entire years of chael trash talking. I just don't want to see Silva banned if he goes too far with hurting chael.

At this point I'd be surprised if chael isn't genuinely scared of walking into that ring. I know he puts up this act and all but deep down he knows he messing with a beast.

I'm not sure if it was this thread, but someone mentioned Anderson Silva maybe not having some fans because of the Leites and the Maia fight. I think I MIGHT have seen the Maia one before, but not the Leites one, so I watched it. I don't get everyones problem.

Round 1: Anderson Silva does his usual first round. He stays back, tries to figure out his opponent and doesn't engage too much.
Round 2: Leites takes him down the the majority of the fight is kept there.
Round 3: Anderson looks to engage and have an exciting fight. Time after time Leites falls onto his back and Silva is getting annoyed. MASSIVE chants for GSP rise.
Round 4: To try and please the fans despite his falling opponent, he starts mixing it up with creative attacks, to a somewhat comical degree, taunting his opponent etc. For the most part, the fans begin to enjoy it.
Round 5: Silva manages to reverse a takedown quick and looks to finish it with punches to the face, bloodying his opponent. The fans are into it when he does this, but 30 seconds later, BIG chants of 'BORING' come out. Anderson stands still with his hands on his hips, looking pretty annoyed that whenever he lets the hands go, his opponent crawls onto his back, and everything to make the fight fun isnt working. GSP chants return too.

To me, the only reason the fans were booing is because they wanted the guy who hadent went the distance back. Anderson wasn't able to do it because his opponent point blank didnt want to exchange. He tried to give the fans some entertainment, with his antics and with the ground and pound, but despite these efforts they chanted another fighters and boring at him.

I don't see why he'd lose any fans here. I here the Maia one was worse but I don't get why this fight would repel someone from being a fan tbh.

Why would Sonnen be scared? As far as he is concerned, he's walking in there with a guy he pounded on for 4 and a half minutes, and was lucky to lock in the submission. He'll be positive it will happen again.

I think there is no question that Chael will take the fight down. I'm watching over all of their fights as I will make a bet on it at some point, but Anderson has been taken down quite a few times and Chael is one of the best wrestlers. This time however, I think Anderson will be able to keep it standing a lot longer, perhaps from round 3 to 5, and he will pick Chael off and pepper him with shots the entire later rounds. I'm not sure how I'll go yet as I havent went through Chael's fights and I've just watched up to Silva's Leites fight, but I'm thinking a dramatic 5th round stoppage, with the two men being 2 a piece in the final round.

This is why I hate Canada. Recently I got a ticket for Jaywalking, it was 10am in the morning, the nearest car was two lights down, and I ran across the street. Then some goofball cop comes out of nowhere in his undercover car and decides to give me a $50 Ticket like he had nothing better to do. I went to go request a court date to fight it, and instead they just laughed it off and threw the ticket in the garbage, problem solved.

Okay, watched the Griffin fight after, and how can anyone...ANYONE...still be pissed at the Leites fight? Anderson says "I hated that fight, **** this, I'm moving up a weight!" He does it, puts his hands by his side and tells Forrest, a dude who loves a tear up, to start swinging. Forrest does, he matrix style dodges them all, and knocks him on the ground. He then helps Forrest up, knowing that the ground doesnt want to watch that...and knocked him out.

So, unless Anderson Silva front kicked your mother in the face, how can you hate him based on the Leites fight WHATSOEVER? Maia fight is next, but this fight on it's own can't be a reason to hate the guy.
