So is the picture real or not? There was never any contxt for the picture. Someone says they done a search for images etc. Someone claims its on bookface.

Creepy in my opinion that folks would be searching for images like this, but how do we know if they were searching for it. Maybe it just landed in their inbox and posted it for all to enjoy. :eek:

Everyone has their own things. :rolleyes:

On second look it does seem a bit strange, but that could just be the quality of the camera, light etc.

In any case even if it is a fake - live by the sword die by the sword. I am not going to shed any tears for the shirtless wonder.

Seeing as RR is such a staunch defender of The Rules, I doubt he would post a fake picture. We just have to wait and im sure eventually he will explain the context. Maybe even post a link.

No doubt you are correct. I just thought it is odd that according to some.... the image is not searchable via the interwebs.

Yeah and I can understand not shedding any tears about the picture. He has to live with the lies / bullying etc.

Just thought it odd ...the picture and the contxt.

Yes, it was emailed to me. Certainly was not searching for it. Appears to be from some kids party last weekend.

The strangest things turn up when searching for images on toast.

Those pics ARE creepy.

The shirtless one's with McCaughey are disturbing but the one's with Keith Richards are off the charts.

That is the single most awesome picture in the history of the intertubes.

I posted the link on twitter days ago.

I wonder what type of party that was? Do we know the context ???....of why dude bro has his shirt off with the shades and head band?

I't can't be a typical "kids party" if he has a "large Bordeaux" half full of the "two buck chuck".

If we gonna have the picture up to discuss lets discuss.

I felt as skeevy as a Gunderson doing it, but I Googled the first of the names on the Twitter accounts and yeah, they were high school students. *shudder* That's not the parental supervision those kids need, even if he has sired some offspring...

If that's the case, (and I'm not criticizing John Swanson for bringing this to light) then I vote that we just drop this storyline entirely.

We're straying into territory that has nothing to do with anything that this forum should revolve around, IN MY HUMBLE OPINION.

And Glenn's provocations of discussing this further are not helping matters, IN MY HUMBLE OPINION.

Yes, I am guilty of attempting to add ridiculous humor to this thread, but at least that still involved, and revolved around, His Majesty.

I'd be fine if the mods nuked everything from post #8939 onward.

But maybe that's just me. Dunno.
 
I rend to agree, but will have to have a good look at it all (unfortunately)

In the meantime, lets please get back on track talking about Lances demise and legal struggles. You know...on topic. Without resorting to insults, barbs and baits - hard but possible I'm sure for such refined gentle(wo)men as yourselves.

And please desist with the chick pics

I agree.

At first I thought the girls were in college but it is clear that is not the case. I took down the links to their twitter pages.

As usual some try to twist what I posted. I thought the pic was funny, lance out having fun. If anything it goes along with what he has been saying to the media, that he has a good life and everyone still is friendly with him.

Oh, come on. It was appropriately hilarious until some idiot (me) wondered if they weren't actually minors. The burden of creepitude lays on Lance for being there in the state he was (posing for photos half naked with an empty wine glass and a goofy grin) - not on RR for rightfully assuming these kids would be of age.

Why would you compromise the privacy and the security of the kids, by posting their images on a public forum, just to take a shot at Lance?

I know that last year has been hard for you but most can realize that Twitter is a public forum with 271 million users. You might be disappoint in your boy for hanging with a bunch of kids but I thought the pic was great.

It was pretty obvious that they were minors. BroDeal pointed that out in a rude and direct way. See Berzin's responsive edict.
