Chaos In Pamplona: Two Americans Gored; Protesters Invade Bull Ring

Amazing image above -- when a protester jumped into the bullring at San Fermin, outran two ancient security dudes (I believe one was Sgt. Garcia from the old Zorro TV show) and draped himself over a dying bull. He did it, he said, so that the bull "wouldn't die alone."
And while that may seem like -- er, excuse me -- bullshit, I actually believe him. These animal activists really don't want to see beasts suffer, and nothing is more painful to endure than a bull getting killed at the end of a bullfight, or watching it. These protesters believe in something and they say so. Would that many of us could do the same.
So two guys leaped into the ring as these foppy Spanish cowards were executing a bull, and one made it to his destination, and lay on the animal. The man, by the way, was covered in blood when they pulled him off.
And so we complete Day 2 of the San Fermin Festival in Spain, a portion of which is known as The Running of the Bulls.
Oh, and speaking of that, three people were gored on Friday -- two of them Americans, and one of those in the huevos rancheros.
Science fact: 35 percent of the world's population are idiots, mired in superstition and slaves to ancient, hidebound practices too horrific and/or stupid for normal humans. Let's not go over the list, because I have no stomach for it now -- let's just concentrate on one that's near the top.
There are more morons per capita in Spain than any other nation, and there's no better way to confirm that than to go to a bullfight. The "sport", of course, is slowly dying -- the typical Spaniard either hates it, or doesn't care. But there are enough traditionalists -- and paying tourists -- around to keep it on life support.
Here's a photo I found of American tourists arriving in San Fermin for the Running of the Bulls:
Without tourists, bullfighting would already be dead.
