Any body that is foolish enough to mess with a 700+ lbs bull with horns in the street is worthy of getting gored. Idiots.

OUCH!!!! My #2 son ran with the bulls in Pamplona,Spain. Said the supposed trick to it is you stay up drinking all night in preparation for the bulls.
" Get out of that door you Goddamn piece of shit" and than I felt the kick of the boot on my skinny ass and the small of my back- it broke my grasp of the tower door and out I went screaming like a little girl
I don't feel sorry for a single one of those dumb bastards.

My number 1 son made the Running of the Bulls too.
He pointed out they don't tell you 2 things before hand:
1)If you try to get off the course the locals will push you back in with the bulls
2)When you complete the run ahead of the bulls you are in a bullfighting arena with all of bulls and they let the bulls chase you around for the spectator's pleasure for a while.
Always funy to watch a bunch of dumbass's get their shit stomped,
how about Running with the wolf's or running with the brown bears?
I got chased by a bull once. Doing land nav and took a short cut through the wrong fenced off private property.
The answer- November 6, 2012.
The question- What is the last day that Barack Obama has to make ANY pretense of not being an extreme leftist?
Stupid is as stuipid does.
The video is not of the Fiesta San Fermin (the well-known "Running of the Bulls" in Pamplona) where they release 10 bulls to run the 1/2 mi route every morning from their pen to the arena - I ran there in 2007. It's one of the many offshoots which you can stumble into throughout the Hispanic world.
If you're too obviously drunk or tired on the morning of the race, the police remove you from the course and will not allow you to participate.
If you're trying to escape the bulls during the race, you're not tossed back into the streets by the crowds. The sections of the race where they have emplaced wooden fencing have a double set of fences - one next to the bulls and a meter area between that fence and the barriers behind which the spectators are located. There are LEOs in the areas between the fences to manage the crowd and the participants.
The most dangerous aspects of the race (from what I experienced) are that the streets are mostly cobblestone and slimy wet from having been washed just before emplacing the barriers each morning of the race; not thinking through the race and going into it with no planning or thought out contingencies; participating without any knowledge of the expected behaviors of bulls (I grew up in the country around cattle ranches and dairy farms); and the effects of the crowd of runners bumping, pushing, surging, stumbling, etc, and forcing you into a situation with the bulls which can be dangerous.
My friend and I walked the route twice the day before to do a route recon to decide where we'd initially position ourselves and plan for contingencies if things became too OOC for us. Our planning worked well for us that day as one of the bulls gored 6 jacka$$e$ who had obviously done no such planning - two of those gored were Americans from Philadelphia - the same bull also gored the matador that night in the arena. We had a great time and were unscathed.
IMO, there's risk, there's calculated risk, and there's foolishness - I prefer calculated risk and would rate most of those in that video under the foolishness category.
And so it goes...

"SF doesn't do harassment. No encouragement; no discouragement. You cannot be in SF if you do not set your own standards. Nobody sets it for you. They just watch what you do. If you rest when you should be working, if you drink when you should be humping, if you let your buddy carry a load too heavy for him - you're gone. No questions, just you're gone. They don't need you."
I've ran it and had a fucking blast!
I think we should consider modeling our presidential elections along these lines...only instead of bulls the bastards should run in front of disgruntled veterans!
You can't train for a kick in the balls!
I do like it when the bulls win . . . and when the fat guy got laid the F%^& out in the middle of the street. :)
