Legless Runner Declares War On Bipeds

Track and field nerds may remember the name of Oscar Pistorius, the double amputee who fought to get into the Olympic Games (and then didn't qualify.) Apparently, he has turned his aggression on people who still have their legs.


The South African sprinter—who runs very fast on his Tigger-esque prosthetics—was arrested this weekend after allegedly assaulting a 19-year-old woman who he had thrown out of his house during a party. When the woman tried to return to the party, Pistorius slammed the door ... on her leg. So that's how it's going to be, huh? Someone gets drunk and starts acting like an idiot at your house party and you immediately go for the legs? Seen "The Karate Kid" a few too many times, haven't we?

Oscar, your dream of destroying all human tibia bones so that you can create a race of carbon-fiber based super beings is never going to happen, so just let it go.
