    Americas Got Talent...

    Guy I know was on there last night...John Beatty, strong man.

    Bent a skillet like it was made from a pop can, drove a nail thru 2 boards and a license plate with his bare hand and carried a several hundred pound stone out on the stage like a sack of potatoes.

    And....he's going to Vegas!!! Very nice guy, don't really think he'll win but he deserves to go to Vegas

    I think I was more impressed when he unbent it. Thats one guy I'd call sir/mister. And Piers... like he would be able to even think about bending that thing

    Yah....Piers seemed a little shocked, very funny...

    John is a gentle giant though, he worked his way through nursing school as a bartender, seen him easily convince drunks it was time to go

    I never watched that show until this season. It's pretty cool. I haven't seen your buddy's episode yet.

    this guy? Yup, very cool. When we had the convention at my house, we needed to move the horseshoe pits. Nobody could pull the pipes from the ground. Dave [DHVAC] pulled um like they were driven into butter.

    Piers. What a dolt.
    No reserve. No retreat. No regrets.

    For those who have fought for it, freedom has a sweetness the protected will never know.
