MM and I have been feeding the silly/unimportant election claims, and I found one. It's true, too! Romeny was arrested at the age of 17...for sliding down the slopes of a golf course on a huge block of ice! Yep, that Mitt is a real wild man! I dunno about you, but I'm having trouble creating a mental image of this activity.
Good sleuthing, Habee! I feel closer to him than ever now! Reminds me of when my dormmates and I went sledding on cafeteria trays!
You can really see Mitt's character development. I bet that one incident is what inspired him to save the 2002 WINTER Olympics in SLC! He 'turned it around' from a negative (personal arrest) to a positive (if you're going to luge, be the fastest in the world so they can't catch you!)
He was late for his "iced tee" time. He violated the club's "no outside food or drinks" policy. The ice block was made from municipal water and not Perrier. He neglected to yell "fore" before descending the hill. They were actually ok about the ice. It was the beer cart that ticked them off.
Reminds me of a guy I know, he used to DJ. One day he showed up to a party and put his strobles on the front of his van... once they got the runners to come back to the party they thought it was pretty funny.
Okay, I understand that airport security had to get a lot more tougher since the horrific aftermath of 9/11, but this is just plain ridiculous. Seriously, how is a guy that wears baggy pants a threat to national...
