1. He's not so hot on infield grounders, either.
That was the same guy, wasn't it?

2. The stench of ignorance, hate, bile, and racism must be awful in that studio by now.
He looked really wobbly in the few seconds before he went down.

Fainting is a funny (though of course also serious) process of the human body. I'm fascinated by how the body, in order to save itself, will occasionally knock one unconscious, knowing that the only way to survive is to get the thinking part to shut down for a little while.

12. Well, a little journalistic followup would have been nice.

Still, nobody "just" faints--I hopes he gets himself a complete physical.

18. Actually yea they do
Dehydration, fatigue, standing with your knees locked, standing up too fast, low blood sugar are all non-threatening conditions that can cause people to faint. It has happened to several people I know, who are usually fine after a glass of water and a cookie(or something else sugary)

4. There you have the entire Republican/conservative philosophy in a nutshell:
Someone expresses distress. Ignore the distress and tell them to just "hang on." When they collapse, do nothing yourself, just ask someone else to help them.

6. so I just watched on huffpo (link below)... my question is
David seems to have a good grasp on the fact that he's about the pass out so I'm guessing it's a condition that he lives with. So why didn't he immediately walk off set to a safe spot when he got the feeling that he was about to pass out?

9. You can't exactly walk during an episode like that
You're minds racing so much that everything is going in slow motion. Once you think that you are going to pass out, then that just makes it worst.

17. It's not the economy...
it's just if you get too close to Beck for too long, your brain shuts down....too.
