oh for goodness sake. japan experiences tremors every day. it is built on a fault line. this tremor was 137 miles offshore. there was NO damage to housing, roads, track, and indy cars are racing there. but there seems to be some posters who are determined to try and stop a race being held.

pretty much everything in life i think people have become sissyfied and bitch and whine about everything and always want a cookie just for trying

but this isnt weather or tough conditions we are talking about its fu*king radiation, if you believe the reports you havent looked into ALL of the reports out there not just the ones they want you to look at... listen to some scientists that arent attached to any orginization and see what their opinion is... i have a friend that lives in northern japan and from talking to her things arent as peachy as they want us to believe... THEY ARE STILL USING ROBOTS TO CLEAN UP FUKASHIMA!!! IF ITS NOT SAFE FOR PEOPLE AT THE PLANT 80K OF DISTANCE DOESNT MAKE THINGS GO AWAY!!!

are people dropping dead, losing skin dying in the streets... no, but radiation isnt something that shows up quickly in the human body or something that just disapates into thin air... is saving face trying to have a GP in japan instead of waiting a year to let the situation play

This is such a no-brainer. It has been from the start. The event (at that track) should have been cancelled. Corporate greed (looking after the bottom line) and fan greed (you better not interrupt the show I want to keep watching) are the factors leading people to say the event should go forward. I guess you could add lack of intelligence to the list as well. The people standing on the sidelines calling people "puss!es" for not wanting to go are like the people who stand on the sideline of a fight yelling out "fight fight fight". Stupid people, with personal agendas, saying stupid things.

Firstly, there's an ongoing radiation emergency which is serious and for which there is a possibility of understatement by authorities. Secondly, in the face of that radiation emergency, there's ongoing seismic activity in the area. Third, there's the risk associated with the escalation of the radiation emergency.

It's a n

It's a no-brainer. No amount of greed or stupidity is justifcation for the riders, the teams, the team employees, officials, and all the people who make the event happen being exposed to the risks in play.

jimmy jimmy. that is your opinion. thank goodness everybody doesnt have the same opinion. its nothing to do with greed but its all to do with sport. do you consider that the indycar drivers are all stupid. NONE of these refused to go, and NONE are running away either.

"do you consider that the indycar drivers are all stupid. NONE of these refused to go"

Point to where I said "any racer not refusing to go is stupid". You're putting words in my mouth then telling me I'm wrong.

If you have a contrary opinion that's your business and I respect your right to voice it. But if you are going to point out why you think I'm wrong, at least point to something I actually said.

jimmy jimmy. i asked a question, i did not make a statement!! i will ask you you consider that the indy car drivers are stupid. all i want is YES or NO.
and as for you last sentence, i could ask you exactly the same. point to something i actually said!

Do you understand that a rhetorical question is about making a statement not asking a question? Do you understand your 'question' ends with a full stop not a question mark? Do you understand that your 'question' is about something I did not say? Do you undertand that I did not once say anything about Indy car drivers (or motogp riders) being stupid for "not refusing to go"?

If you were genuinely asking a fresh question you would have started off with something like "I know this is not something you addressed but I want to know if you think indy car drivers are stupid..."

You tried to put words in my mouth and after being called on it you are pretending that that is not what you were doing. Nice try Slim.

Instead of giving me more of your BS, try this. Tell me what it is in what I originally posted that you are disagreeing with.
