    Could you give me the measurement to determine "High as a Kite"?

    Running out in the middle of a race track with cars zooming by?

    On a scale from doobie to laced with PCP......ahhhh....nevermind.

    Frankly, don't know if he was high as a kite, but when your temper allows you to break from reality and walk into the middle of a race track with cars racing by.....seems like you have some huge issues.

    Yes, this is how stupid pissing contests sometimes end. Not the driver's fault IMO.

    You should direct that question to the person who made the claim (I would be interested in the answer as well):

    I quoted you because you stated the poster was lying.
    ("under the influence" or "impaired" =/= "high as a kite").
    Unless you can quantify "High as a kite" you are not able to make that judgement.

    He lied about what his source said since it did not use that term, but instead used what most would consider more moderate terms. Had he provided no source then he would have simply been providing a personal opinion rather than incorrectly attributing unsaid words or concepts to someone or something considered to be authoritative.

    I will let the readers here make their own judgement as to whether his term is synonymous with the as-yet unproven terms that his source did use ("under the influence" and "impaired"), or if he was exaggerating/embellishing for effect and whether or not that technically qualifies as a lie, as opposed to being intellectually honest and simply using the exact terms that his source did use. That's how debates work (my goal is not to convince you).

    When reporting on/incorporating the words of others it is best to use the same words that they used. Unless the intent is to misrepresent . . . .

    But am certain there is a line of lawyers at the door of the family to go for civil charges.
    Especially when the cars racing are open wheel and there are no fenders to prevent that kind of accident from happening... Walking out in the middle of the track during that type of racing was just asking for trouble.

    Yep, the test can only determine if marijuana has been used, not if the subject is currently intoxicated. A heavy user could quit smoking for a month and still test positive for marijuana use. Even longer, actually.

    I'm pretty sure that parents of a dead child are going to sue civilly a rich person that they view as the cause of that child's death.

    Interesting. The DA said the content was enough to impair his judgment. That may explain things.
