The jump in progress: http://boards.straightdope.com/sdmb/showthread.php?t=379277
After a lightning storm, the SDMB cable TV channels in my house got scrambled, it was a trip to see a Food Network show mixed with the Donner party on the History channel, but never mind that, I found a mix of TV land + Discovery Channel! Lets watch…
***TheFonz ** gets ready to jump over the GD forum without any armor!
Richie: A Shamosaurus? That is the stupidest thing I have ever heard!
TheFonz: Stupid, yes. Also dumb. But it is something I’ve gotta do.
Richie: TheFonz, you’re not jumping over garbage cans on a bike. You’re jumping over a Shamosaurus. On nothing! On a couple of little skis! One little slip and chomp! Chomp! Chomp!
TheFonz: Thanks a lot for your support. Look, I saw Land before time!* these things are not carnivorous, I gotta jump.
(Indeed, a Shamosaurus is a kind of Ankylosaurus:
So, easy money thought TheFonz, I will show all the old farts how I can jump all over a critter like that with no problem.
The jump was on! TheFonz climbed the ramp at high speed with no problem, it was clearing the critter’s pit when suddenly the last **TheFonz ** saw was the boulder like tail of the dinosaur coming at him even faster…
(Well, no Chomp! Chomp! But lots of Stomp! Stomp! It mercifully ended quickly… )
And that is how TheFonz found too late that not everything you see on TV or the web can be considered good evidence… *
I turned the TV off then…
Cripes, that effort was so unrealistic and pathetic, Really bad graphics, I think **TheFonz ** passed his peak and now it will be branded as one of the lamest dopers. Dang, I think I will never pay **TheFonz ** any attention after this episode. I think they call that Jump the… shit, I don’t remember now, but it is a phrase that although is wearing its welcome it is perfect in this case!
Oh well, at least this new cable system looks interesting, I only hope **TheFonz ** gets into directing or something, because acting that way in GD will never get him anywhere.
