Whoa where did this statistic come from?

I've been driving since I was 16. I was also drinking at parties from that same age until I quit a year ago.

In that entire 7 years from house parties and outings to the bars after I turned 21.

I never even got behind the wheel of a vehicle after drinking.

Like Canadian Psycho said. Drinking and driving is a completely tool move.

Millions upon millions of people are driving "under the influence" every night in the US, get over it. Texting and driving causes more accidents, get outraged over that.

It's not as if the USA is viewed as the most intelligent nation by the rest of the world though, is it?

I think most people can relate to this - and I totally understand it.

I'd rather see the shit talk stay centered on the fights, but these are people in the national spotlight. Politicians (Sonnen - who I generally get a good laugh out of) are used to playing this sort of game and it carried over.

If something comes out about Jones; it couldn't have happened to a nicer guy. That said, it really is not appropriate to reveal personal issues that have zero impact on the results in the cage.

Always supporting:
Forrest
Machida
Wandy
Velasquez


Anderson Silva vs. Jon Jones is the best match-up the UFC has ever been able to arrange. Here's to hoping it goes down.

So, if he gets embarrass publicly, I'm not going to lose any sleep over it.

*But*, I do not feel what Sonnen is doing is appropriate.

Millions upon millions of Americans are idiots.

I can't believe people would actually try and justify/excuse the act of drinking and driving. It's mind boggling.

I have a special kind of hate for people who drink and drive.

I have a friend who I recently found out that she would drink then drive home. Pretending she was 'ok' to drive.

I called her a selfish ******* **** who is too ******* cheap to take a cab.

Ive taken to personal insults when people I know try to rationalize drinking and driving because anger usual gets the best of me.

Not sure why people defend it neither. Is it guilt because you've done it/do it?

Its not because texting and driving is bad, that drinking and driving should get a pass.
