Other sources describe donut-shaped tire tracks in the roadway (but they could have already been there) and signs warning of a dangerous curve....

EDIT: I'm not trying to point fingers or judge... I'm sure most of us have done things on the road we wish we hadn't (I get impatient...) Dying young (or not young for that matter) for something like this is just so unnecessary. And the families left behind.... And of course this sort of thing happens to non-celebrities, too, and those people are just as important and their deaths just as tragic; maybe the function of fame, of bad things happening to famous people, is to make us pay attention.

Okay so, apparently, if you're an American and say something in an American magazine and it gets translated and published in France, you can be prosecuted in France for hate speech?

Now in English!:

By the way, the American in question is Bob Dylan. Not that that should matter.

I'm sorry, as far as I know, the First Amendment is still in effect here, whether the French like it or not.
(But if you murder a Philadelphia police officer, they'll name streets after you; and if you drug and sodomize a 13-year-old girl then spend 30-odd years on the lam, you'll be a national hero.)

I knew these drones were a bad idea....

(Seriously, I don't approve of "the drone program" in the "war on terror" and please don't assume I'm the only American who doesn't.)

Now, let's see who can make a connection between Paul Walker, Bob Dylan, drones, the First Amendment and fast Porsches.

Or we could wait for an update on Verso's mosquito colony.

(Sorry, been a long day and I'm feeling silly.)

It'll send your packages through a window. Keep them open if you don't want to have to clean up broken glass.

Did you know that if you do something like drafting a private message that's too long, SSC will inform you, and I quote, "Los siguientes errores ocurrieron al enviar este mensaje: "? Or "ż?"

A story of my apartment house go on.

In September, we (owners) made a deal, that if someone knows a realizable company with good references, he/she can submit it to the tendering. Nobody even said a word. And now, three days after the deadline, when only one company was submitted to tendering, an elderly lady who have unfortunately two votes (because she have an garage in basement in addition), told me she will block everything, because her cousin can do it, and now listen...... 100 € cheaper! (the price for project documentation is around 5 000 € )

Conspiracy theory:
A spying drone was recording conversations regardless of First Amendment when suddenly was distracted by a mosquito colony and therefore collided with a fast Porsche driven by Paul Walker as he was listening Bob Dylan.
