    NEP you missed this one. Your chance to trash thread about "Obama the fly killer"

    PETA miffed at President Obama's fly execution | U.S. | Reuters

    POLITICO (Washington) - The president has been getting lots of kudos for a lightning-fast, Mr. Miyagi-worthy swipe he employed to slay a pesky house fly that was buzzing him in mid-interview during a taping with CNBC that aired WednesdayBut now People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, calling it an "execution," wants the commander-in-chief to show a little more compassion to even "the least sympathetic animals." ....

    I know he swated it like it was a mosquito. Pretty hard to do to a fly. Lets see him snatch it out of the air with chopsticks like Mr Miogy.

    Ever read "Rockin' Steady, A guide to basketball & Cool” by Walt “Clyde” Frazier????

    He has an entire section on catching a fly with your hands. From and ESPN2 interview:

    ESPN.com - Page2 - Walt Frazier

    10. Quickness was a big part of your game on the court, but when I was reading your 1974 book "Rockin' Steady," I came across a section in which you talk about catching flies out of the air.

    Frazier: What happened was, I used to do camps all the time, right, so one particular day we were outside the mess hall waiting to go in and, you know, I'm like the Pied Piper, wherever I go there are always 10 or 12 kids gathering around me. So I'm sitting there, and I swat at some flies, and I knew I had one, but it turned out I caught two! I had two in my hands, and I shook them up so they'd get dizzy, and then I threw them down onto the ground. And everybody was like, "Hey man, Clyde can catch flies!" So that perpetuated the myth right there, man.

    Can you still do it? Are you still that quick?

    Frazier: Well, now I tell people that the flies know about me, so they don't come around. But you know, in that book, I demonstrated how to catch them. Because, you see, flies fly horizontally. If you reach straight up, you're not going to catch them. You have to swing horizontally, and then they'll just fly into your hands.

    I have it on good authority that the fly had a teeny, tiny Lakers hat on at the time of death.

    Have been a card carrying member of that group for years...wear it proudly every time I eat a meal(just not a meal without some meat :D)

    Funny how that group gets blamed for global warming yet they actually can do more for it by just eating more meat to thin the cow population :D

    Flys carry bacteria, i mean they don't exactly like to live in the Cleanest of places. Thys have to be harmfull, cardiac operating rooms have signs on the doors that say:



    NO FLY ZONE!!!!!
