    IIRC they don't do jury trials there anymore-- his case will be decided by the judge, so there should be no worries about the jury being biased by the stories...

    I heard on the news this morning that a neighbor heard the two of them arguing prior to the shooting. also, I guess there's a bit of a domestic violence history between the two of them.

    This shit is hilarious, proper gold! It's like saying a legless MMA fighter has an advantage over an MMA fighter who is fully stocked in the leg department, because the leg-less fighter can't be submitted with an ankle lock.

    I'm just loving the phrase, 'fully stocked in the leg department'... :D

    Reminds me of this.

    "You are deficient in the leg division to the tune of one..."

    Speaking of "Beyond the Fringe," Jonathan Miller once thought I was stalking him in Cooperstown, New York, and a year later, in Cincinnati.

    There were some studies done on the issue that actually were interesting from a biomechanical perspective.

    The cartooon depiction of the shooting from S.Africa showed Oscar standing there with stumps blasting thru the bathroom door. But he claimed he put on his blades (or they might've been the Hush Puppy version, i'm not sure) when he shot at the door. The angle of fire might be key in this case.

    Also from the CNN report this morning, the defense showed that his neighbors live several football fields away. Not to say they couldn't have been walking by at the time, but interesting anyways.

    Thanks. I missed the beginning, but they're repeating it at 12:30, so I set the DVR.

    When I was a kid, my Dad's boss had a wooden leg. I was fascinated by that thing.

    "The Las Vegas Strip became a scene of deadly violence early Thursday when someone in a black Range Roveropened fire on a Maserati at a stoplight, sending it crashing into a taxi that burst into flames, leaving three people dead and at least six injured.
    Police believe an altercation earlier at a hotel prompted the car-to-car attack in the heart of the Strip at Las Vegas Boulevard and Flamingo Road, the site of several major hotel-casinos, including Bellagio, Caesars Palace and Bally's."

    initial reports were even more sensational - talked about a "running gun battle" between the vehicles.
