July 12, 2008: Pamplona

You've all heard of Pamplona, Hemingway, running of the bulls, yada yada yada.
We've seen some pretty amazing pictures of drunk/crazy people trying to keep ahead of, keep up with, or keep out of the way of, bulls running a four minute mile on twisting cobblestone streets.

That said, this one is a new twist, to me. Apparently at the end of the run, where the bulls enter the ring, these nuts drop down so the bulls will jump over them. I guess they are hoping there are no beefy bulldozers in the bunch.



As much as I've seen and read about this "sport", I have zero desire to try it.

You know, I am *so* comfortable with the length of my dick and my inherent manhood, there is zero chance that I'll ever find myself in this position unless I'm kidnapped by a gang of drunks with extra white clothes and red sashes.

You just have to hope these people are taken out of the gene pool by bulls before they reproduce.

I'm not against eating meat, or hunting to eat. But this deliberate toying of animals for sport is anathema to me. How long before Spain catches up with the rest of the Western world?

The one guy is inches away from the hoof of death and yet he finds the time for a photo op. (and judging the camera placement it won't be a very attractive one)

AND he uses his mobile phone instead of a real camera. so the picture quality will be pathetic.
probably he didn´t want to risk his new camera to get ruined, while he didn´t care about his head

Big Easy "running of bulls"
It's the running of the bulls, New Orleans-style. Hundreds of men, women and children, most in white with red scarves around their waists...

I like!
Hope the Health & Safety rules don't end up shutting it down.
I say - keep the kids out and give it a real adrenelaine buzz by letting the girls give you a good old wallop.

I've nothing against risk taking and running scared. Just keep animals out of it.
That sounds like the perfect solution.
