Accident Kills Luger Nodar Kumaritashvili At 2010 Winter Olympics

Perhaps the IOC panel will hold a day of mourning, by not booking so many prostitutes...

Surely any fule noes that unprotected steel girders on a bend contravene Elf 'n Safety Regs.

After de luge, de girder.

Taxi?

richard said...

a sad accident; but on the bright side he was instantly killed whilst doing something he enjoyed. better than sitting in an office for forty years wishing things could be different. he had the balls to take a risk. not a sheeple. good.

And for some Good news:
Steven Barker, who is serving a life sentence for his part in the Papy P's death, was reported to have been scalded by a burning mixture of sugar and boiling water hurled by another prisoner.

Barker, 6ft 4in and 18 stone, was left screaming in pain after suffering burns to his face and arm in the attack at high security Wakefield Prison, West Yorkshire, which could leave him scarred for life.

I would love to try the two man bob, providing I could be in the rear. Grrrrr.....slurp slurp.

Chris said...

Agree with Rich above. There's worse ways to go than in pursuit of Olympic gold.
Brave bloke pitted himself against physics using only a tea tray, and regrettably lost.

John R said...

Has no-one in the IOC/Canadian Olympic organisation ever thought of nets, guide rails, or padding to keep the competitors on the track if they part company with the luge?

I wouldnt want to slow them down on the track or get the Safety Elf involved (God forbid) as I think people should be alowed to take risks. But it must be safer hitting some sort of soft-ish object than leaving the track/chute and hitting a solid object as he did.

They even have ways of slowing down F1 cars to minimise accidents, why not the same here. Hardly rocket science is it?

So big and hard he had to pick on a toddler to get his jollies.

Steven Barker napalmed !
Bigger they are...

Olympic story very sad. On the video it just says the medics were giving him attention. As other people have said - better to go doing something he enjoys than to live on & on & on like a sheeple.

Well that's it, ban Luge.

Cunts!

Oh well, you win some, you luge some.

I see they've pulled the video. Bastards.

Yeah, they're bastards for not showing a man dying on their website...

Instantaneous. Peak of physical condition. Doing what you love.

What better way to go ?

Goodbye, cruel world.

I hate it when people don't let us watch snuff movies ... after all that's what freedom of speech is for isn't it? Or is that one of the best arguments for depriving us of it ... because infantile morons can't tell the difference between liberty & licentiousness.

Glad it's been pulled.

RantinRab said...

Aye, fair point about pulling the vid. I'm just that used to calling people bastards...

Anonymous said...

yup, 'tis a fair point. haven't seen the footage; probably for the best.

anyone else remember when Abu Musab al-Zarqawi was killed in Iraq? snuff on the front page of British newspapers, such was the (claimed) significance of the event.

his death made not one jot of difference, in fact.

Kay Burley said...

It's the X factor audience. There's nothing like some poor sap dieing live on screen to pull in the viewers. 240'000 Haitian's are yesterdays news compared to 1 Georgian in a designer costume.
Over to Ainsley in the kitchen who's preparing a skewered kebab.

Probably not the best luger in the world then

Joe Shmo said...

ffs you cunts. the guy is dead. here you are hijaking his death to make a point about health and safety or freedom of speech?
fucking retards...

No ordinary wimp said...

There used to be a site called Ogrish. It was pulled when US soldiers started posting their death vids in Iraq.

But that was only political embarrassment.

The stuff that was on it before was much much worse; amongst other gruesomeness, real horrible stuff, including torture and cold-blooded murder from wars where the West wasn't involved, so no PC scruples at all.

The thing is, you're kinda drawn to it you want to look, but afterwards you really wish you hadn't. For a time after I felt hollowed out, dehumanised, even a bit depressed and haunted by the scenes and images.

But at least I learnt something, I didn't really know before; that evil is very much with us.

This is the blogosphere Joe. The cutting edge of the new media. Think Richard and Judy without censorship.

Ron Broxted said...

Had some bad news tonight, my cousin Steven Barker who tortured and murdered Baby Peter was earlier nearly killed in an attack in jail by another prisoner, my cousin who like me is a BNP supporter is though to be seriously injured following the attack.I'm not saying what he did was right, it was wicked, but how come my cousin can be attacked inside a prison with all the screws about, but Ali Dizaei that corrupt bacon gets to be on Rule 43straight away? One rule for the ex-PIgs and another for my blood.

Black Policeman's Ball said...

Ron. Your cousin was a scumbag all his life, living like a scumbag, so nothing much is different for him. If it didn't happen there, it'd have happened somewhere else.

Commander Ali Dizaei was a scumbag living the life of a respectable and honourable man, with power, influence and respect.

Ali's pain in his current fallen predicament is so much greater, and indeed a greater joy to all concerned who witness it.

Can't wait for the vids of Ali in his cell.

it's always about money.........

otherwise nobody gives a shit!

doubt the luge bloke even had time to realise he'd made a mistake

Anonymous said...

Thing is - probably more people have watched the vid of the luger because of the 'censorship' factor. If the IOC had kept their gobs shut & left the vid on vimeo less people would have bothered watching it both there & on liveleaks - it may never even have made it to liveleaks. IMO, the poor guy is dead, watching or not watching a vid of how it happened isn't going to bring him back. However, the fact that the IOC (who are as corrupt a bunch of money loving bastards as you'd meet any day in Westminster) are trying to censor it, makes it seem like they could be at fault in some way & are sweating their bollox off for fear of a vid watcher noticing something they shouldn't. R.I.P. to the Georgian & condolences to his family & friends. IOC - there's more copies of that vid than you could shake a stick at circulating on the net - so just keep on sweating.

Fuck da IOC!

Dick the Prick said...

Geez EK - and playing Buckaroo too!

Rogerborg said...

Poor show, OH. How are the IOC going to harvest money from this guy's cold corpse if we can watch him dying for nothing?

Barker was a bit of cheery news, but the best is this: Climate Change Voodoo High Priest blurts out that there's been no global warming(*) since 1995. Also, the dog ate his homework.

(*) "statistically significant" is Scientician punctuation, where a human might say "ummm", or scratch their arse guiltily.

Who the fuck actually wants to see this stuff, Holby?

Fuck you, you utter cunt.

Anonymous said...

500 reasons. Not everybody does.

But it's nice to have the choice.

Why should you, nor anyone else decide, what I, a fully grown adult wants to see?

By the way, I didn't wish to watch it.

I'd best avoid your next London outing methinks... said...

A man dies. OH mocks ("that's gotta sting") Nice! Almost close to your recent mocking of disabled children eh OH?

Not a video I'd want to see. But if that floats your boat OH, much as feeling superior to juveniles with Downs Syndrome does, who am I to object?

Er, it not longer exists.
