Yeah, I would like to say I would die trying to save my kids, but you don't know what the situation was and what you would actually do in a situation like that...

Im with you, biscuit..I definitely would say kids first, but I wasnt there. The article says they could see the car's taillights 3 feet down. I dont know how bad the river must be, but I would rather die attempting to save them then live with the fact that maybe I could have if I tried...

The kid was 13. He probably figured the kid had a better chance of escaping by himself than his wife did.

Man, that sucks. Bad thing is the man has to live with the choice even though he might not have even been able to rescue his son, since he was in a submerged car.

It's terrible, but it's also sad that this is how the story is being framed. The man saved a life.

    • And yes, Smitty would've been absolutely hell on wheels in MMA.
    • Smitty would've tried to have literally killed Talib for that poo he pulled on Philly in the SB.
    • SSDs are mostly good if you need fast read or write speeds, eg watching or editing large files like raw audio or video.  They won't help much for standard stuff, and are one of the larger premium price points.  They are very nice in that they produce less heat and are more stable, no spinning discs, but you won't notice much of a performance gain for general use. The biggest bang for your buck is RAM.  I always get as much RAM as I can afford.  That will improve performance of everything on the system.  Upgrade CPU/cores next, for overall performance. Again, depending on what you're doing, the graphics card can make as big a difference as anything else.  That's mostly for gaming and video playing/editing, however.  But with more and more video streaming going on, the graphics card can be very helpful to improve performance and quality.
