I know, I'm a pathetic movie geek. What's even more pathetic is that I wasted three bucks to rent this pile of sh!t.

A Fiat "Punto". Isn't this some kind of insult in Spanish?

Default Fiat Puta?

There are those who would say that a Fiat Punta is an insult in ANY language....although I understand that it is a perfectly nice, if less than inspiring, little car.

The UK officials should ban all Fiats and female drivers so that Hondas can travel safely.



Or should they ban all musos and other celebrities from riding motorcycles?

I think the newswriter collapsed two or more accidents into one incident. Another site which similarly cited other celebrity cycle accidents mentioned at least 3 seperate ones involving Keanu (maybe he needs an MSF class?), including one as a teen-ager that resulted in a ruptured spleen and other serious injuries.



Looks to me that the writer of the piece above plagerized and took some creative liberty with the other piece. Pretty shoddy journalism, if you ask me.



BTW, of the 30-40 on-line stories on this I looked at, every one was taken largely word for word from a press release by Knopfler's press agent.

Default Second Broken Collarbone

This is the second broken collarbone for Mark Knopfler -- in 1986 he broke one in a crash during a celebrity auto race (I believe in connection with the Australian Grand Prix).

I'll pay $1,000 for your original anniversary edition EZ-leaker as long as it wasn't used in the rain

Don't feel bad about it by any means. Not knowing that increased your cool index by a factor of ten.
