So little Johnny jumped 2 fences/barriers and navigated a pyracanthea (ever touch one of those?) hedge in 3-4 seconds? At 4 years old? I'm calling BS on that, unless of course this kid is somehow superhuman that is. Also, if you're watching 4 of these "blink and they're gone" children alone, that's pretty negligent in itself.
You can't leave, all the plants are gonna die.
It's on HBO all day, provides great background while I clean my house on this rainy Monday
I did, they were watching me when I was that age. Not letting me climb over 2 fences and through a shrub hedge so I could jump into a gorilla enclosure. Sure, it was an accident but that accident was caused by the negligence of the boy's mother. I find it funny people say this happened in a split second, that kid isn't human if that's true. The loss of the gorilla was tragic, and we have the inability of a mother to control her 4 year old to thank for it.
Tons of great ones mentioned, I'll add American Sniper and Lone Survior as 2 great ones. 13 Hours was awesome as well.
Not everything is an extreme? Tell that to the gorilla in this situation.
I agree, it was an extremely tragic situation. Just like those kids dying in hot cars, this situation should have been prevented. And just like the parents who leave their kids in those cars, this parent should be held responsible .
I know. Since I don't have kids I couldn't possibly understand how difficult it is to not let them jump into wild animal exhibits at the zoo. Given how often kids are jumping in with those gorillas, it must have been impossible for her to stop something like that. Let's nominate her for Mother of the Year so her feelings aren't hurt.
I have plenty of compassion, I just reserve it for the innocent. In this case that's the child and the gorilla, and the mom should absolutely face consequences as she's the one responsible. Again, it wasn't a simple accident, it wouldn't have taken 38 years for something like this to happen if a simple accident could lead to it.
If they are that quick, I would thin a good parent would have that in mind when their fast 4 year old kept declaring his intentions to climb into the exhibit.
So, in your opinion, you need to be a perfect parent in order to make sure your kid doesn't imp into wild animal exhibits at the zoo? I disagree, imo she just needed to be as good as every other mom that took their kid there over the past 38 years. I don't think setting the bar that high is unreasonable.
There's a really big gap between taking your eyes off your 4 year old for a moment and losing track of your 4 year old long enough for the to be able to jump into the gorilla exhibit at the Cincy Zoo. The latter is neglect, and the parent should be charged with it along with the killing of a protected species. This wasn't just a common accident, in 38 years this has never happened then along comes this Darwin Award candidate of a mother.
How do you let your 4 year old climb into the gorilla exhibit? Social services should remove the child from that home, the parents are clearly unfit to raise it.
Now the NCAA should punish the program by making them hire Lane Kiffin as the next HC.
Art Briles be like, but, but, but
So the opportunist in me wonders how this impacts the recruitment of the Texas 10 Stars.
Where are the shots of Raptor fans standing around outside and Drake acting like an idiot court side?
I'll be shocked if the NBA lets OKC win this one.
In the interest of being fair, everything Bayless says (and this writer in question as well) is vetted by numerous people at the company. So simplifying it as 1 man's opinion isn't exactly accurate.
They had a really easy schedule last year too, and still managed to lose 4 games.
ESPN sacrificed credibility for ratings a long time ago. Based on how things are run behind the scenes there, I'm honestly surprised they are able to successfully broadcast sporting events, asking that they provide quality insight on top of that is futile. They've become a poorly run sellout of a sports network, more TMZ than anything resembling what they were in the 90's. I wouldn't worry too much about what they say, they only do it for attention.
OKC in all likelihood goes up 3-1 and there's a big chance the series doesn't go 7 games, and that's a ton of lost revenue.
I think you nailed it here, I also think this reasoning explains the officiating at the end of the Cavs game last night. NBA is really close to becoming the WWE with the path they're on.
It gets easier to attack the basket when your teammates are allowed to grab help defenders and hold them from entering the paint. Cavs didn't play great by any means, but they shouldn't be playing 7 on 5 either.
How many bad calls did you see against the Raptors in the last 2 min? I saw at least 3 against the Cavs, that's a pretty big obstacle in a 6 point game.
