Video: How To Deal With A Drunk Driver In Russia

Much like our heroic bus fight video Monday, this might be one of the most inspiring Russian dash cam clips we’ve ever posted. Suspense, intrigue, danger, a car chase, violence, domestic violence, an alcohol-induced Fencing Response, heroism — it has it all. This 3 1/2-minute Russian dash cam video is the must-see mini movie event of mid-afternoon Wednesday. Don’t miss it.

PS – Have Russian people ever seen the sun?

Local Hero Faces To Up To 115 Years In Prison After Scamming Comcast To Save Subscribers $2.4 Million

Internet Neutrality

arstechnicaTwo men pleaded guilty to a scam that lowered the bills of 5,790 Comcast customers in Pennsylvania by a total of $2.4 million. They now face prison time and will have to pay their ill-gotten wealth back to Comcast. 30-year-old Richard Justin Spraggins of Philadelphia pleaded guilty in February and was “ordered to make $66,825 in restitution and serve an 11- to 23-month sentence,” the Times-Herald of Norristown wrote at the time. Scaggins was described as the second-in-command of the operation. The accused ringleader, 30-year-old Alston Buchanan, pleaded guilty last week. “Buchanan faces up to 57½ to 115 years in prison, although Buchanan will likely serve a lesser sentence than the maximum,” the newspaper wrote. There is no agreed-upon sentence—the judge will decide how long Buchanan will spend in prison and how much he’ll have to pay back. “Comcast lost $2.4 million and it will be up to the judge to see how much the defendant will be required to pay back,” prosecutor Jeremy Lupo said.

If ever there should be a Kickstarter…started…it should be for these two protectors of the common man. They have the technological know-how and balls of steel to swipe over $2 million away from one of the most ruthless corporations in America and they just give it away? Lower people’s cable bills instead of taking the cash grab? That’s 21st century Robin Hood legend status.

Really a shame that our court system is controlled by big money or else these guys when judged by 12 of their peers might’ve actually walked free. No way 12 middle-class people throw a guy in jail forever for stealing money from a company whose whole purpose is to steal money. Shame that’s not the world we live in. Instead these guys will…who the hell knows? Kabletown will probably grind their bones into a fine powder then have their board members snort it off a cable box for fun at the next company party.

Thanks for the free HBO, guys. Don’t get murdered in prison!

Last Week Of Recruiting For Our $500K Tournament Basketball Team — You Want In?

logotbt losing3

Slack a couple days and everything goes haywire. The Philly Patriots are now comfortably in the fan lead and have more talent than we do. Spencer Hawes has been MIA as have the majority of the NBA guys. So here is our final push. LAST WEEK of recruiting.

Did you ever play D1 / EuroLeague / Semi-Pro / Professional basketball? Do you know someone who has? Is this person in need of $50,000 for four games of basketball? If yes — get familiar with the team. Email us at phillytips@barstoolsports.com and we’ll take it from there.

We’ve already got one of the tourney’s best PGs, a shooter, and two of the best PFs…we just need to round out the roster with talent. We’d love to do it with Philly local guys, but anybody who loves hoop and money is eligible.

Also — somebody is gonna win $25,000, free sneakers or a decade, a trip for 10 to Vegas, and all types of other stuff. If you become a fan of our team you’re automatically entered to win. The more points you get the more chances you have. Would love to see Stoolies walk away with all this stuff.

VIVA.

The Chemistry On The Pacers Is Going Great Besides Friday When A Bloody & Cursing Evan Turner Had To Be Separated After Fistfighting Lance Stephenson

lame bloggers

yahooOn the eve of this Eastern Conference series, the wobbling No. 1 seed punctuated its final playoff preparations in a most self-destructive way: Two Indiana Pacers dragged a cursing, cut Evan Turner out of the Bankers Life Fieldhouse court, untangling him from a practice-floor fistfight with teammate Lance Stephenson. These scrapes aren’t uncommon in the NBA, but this confrontation had been weeks in the making and that reflected in the ferocity of the encounter, sources told Yahoo Sports. “This stuff happens, but the timing wasn’t ideal,” one witness told Yahoo Sports. These two guards have struggled together since the deadline deal brought Turner from Philadelphia to Indiana. Suddenly, Turner is learning to play without the ball in his hands, and Stephenson is relearning the balance of passing and shooting. Truth be told, there were probably Pacers willing to let Stephenson and Turner beat the dribble out of each other. Still, Luis Scola and David West finally grabbed an enraged Turner and separated Stephenson.

My favorite part of all of this is reading from multiple sources how Lance Stephenson is a “known agitator” and how much blame he seems to be taking for the scrap. This may be true, but anyone familiar with the Sixers knows Evan Turner isn’t exactly winning any Best Personality awards, either. The guy seemed to piss off a lot of people along his way, and with him taking shots from Lance in the guy’s contract year / personifying the front office’s willingness to trade Danny Granger it’s clear to see why a confrontation could happen.

The Pacers are hilarious. Who would have thought a team with a fragile star, talkative center, Lance Stephenson, Evan Turner, and Andrew Bynum wouldn’t work?

PS – In a fair one smart money’s on Evan Turner all day.

Did Giroux Really Guarantee Victory In Game 4?

NJ.com – The star center did make a prediction after his game fell short of greatness once again in a convincing 4-1 Flyers loss to the Rangers, who stole back home ice by taking a 2-games-1 series lead to silence Well Fargo Center. “We’re going to tie up this series and go back to New York,” Giroux said. “You’ve got to stay confident.”

Yup. Yup he did. Well, the word “Guarantee” wasn’t used, but we get the point.

Love the confidence, but personally HATE talk like this nowadays. There are no Joe Namath’s left in the world. This type of shit gets thrown out there way too often and it backfires even more. Sure, G assured everyone when the entire NHL was wiping their asses with Orange and Black TP back in October the Flyers would make the playoffs, but this is different. It’s #Clutchtime (fucking hate that) baby. For a dude that really needs to step up as Captain right now he’s venturing in risky waters. Screw a goal, Giroux hasn’t even had a shot on goal in 3 games. Granted, NY has somehow blocked more shots than Dikembe in his prime, but that’s embarrassing. Get it together before giving out bulletin board material.

The End Of An Era: Prometh Codeine Manufacturer Actavis Stops Production, Sizzurp/Lean May Soon Be Extinct

dr
purple drank

bieber sizzurp

TMZWidespread panic in the rap world — the high-end cough syrup that’s become the lean of choice for Justin Bieber, Soulja Boy, and MANY other rap figures has officially been taken off the market … all because of its reputation as a widely abused drug. A rep for Actavis — famous for the highly-refined cough syrup — tells TMZ, “Given the recent attention, Actavis has made the bold and unprecedented decision to cease all production and sales of its Promethazine Codeine product.” The Actavis rep adds, “This attention has glamorized the unlawful and dangerous use of the product, which is contrary to its approved indication.” Before Actavis pulled the plug on the product, the street value of a pint bottle hovered around $800 — but sources familiar with the market tell TMZ, rappers are now offering insane sums to buy up whatever’s left. We’re told one prominent rapper has already offered his dealer up to $100,000 to get whatever he can.

I don’t know everything there is to know about the crime world, but I’m willing to bet things are going to get pretty shoot-y over the next couple months. Actavis cutting off the supply and forcing thousands of Gold Teeth Americans to go cold turkey from sipping on lean is going to have an immediate impact on public safety. People can’t just calmly let this of a crippling addiction. We’re talking behavior approximately 500-times more aggressive than Elaine when sponges were in short supply.

If you live in Texas and are a pharmacist this might be a good time to take all the Promethazine Codeine you have, put it in a carefully-wrapped gift box, and hand that gift box to the toughest gang in your neighborhood in exchange for their protection. You’re about to get about 10 or so attempted robberies a week from sloppy old gangsters with Gucci Mane stomachs and slurred speech patterns. Gonna need somebody to watch your back.

PS – Does this mean our kids will never know what sizzurp was? Like how Ludes were explained in The Wolf Of Wall Street?
