    Of all the places to rob/burglarize, you'd think the BGs would realize gun shops are the most dangerous to target.

    Of course, there's a reason MENSA membership meetings aren't held in prisons and jails.

    "Deputies said the man was in the middle of the road next to a car found with its doors open, KHOU reported.

    The man was pronounced dead at the scene."

    Dead skunk in the middle of the road.

    Well good for Grandpa! But an even better story is in the link posted. Scroll down to where the LEO releases his K9 partner on some McDonalds customers!

    Officer Zeus takes down Dequarius (I kid you not) Simpkins. Dequarius squeals like a little pig when that dog gets a bite of his ham bone! LMAO. Read the comments. I'm still wiping tears out of my eyes! You people in Texas have all the fun!

    That video has all the makings of an EPIC GT thread!

    I've been to a few of those. You might be surprised... Common sense is still an uncommon commodity, even among Mensans.
