    Only a man would think of doing something so moronic and stupid – the ironic thing is this stupid stunt could cause them their manhood…..hahahahahaha

    I was there in '66 and '69. Today's version looks like a madhouse. Sometimes it's nice to be old…

    I'm not arguing that this isn't stupid, but I'm not suprised people like you, especially in this day and age of overzealous feminism, to forget that the word "manly" is literally syononymous with "courage".
