    LEXINGTON, S.C. (AP) - A man fatally shot his friend with a high-powered rifle in a dispute over a $20 bet on the South Carolina-Clemson football game, authorities said Sunday.
    James Walter Quick, 42, was charged with murder in the shooting of Richard Allen Johnson, 43. Johnson died from a single shot to the chest, according to a preliminary autopsy Sunday.The two had bet $20 on the annual game, with Quick taking South Carolina, which won 31-28, and Johnson taking Clemson, Lexington County Sheriff James Metts said. They drank beer all afternoon and watched the game Saturday at Johnson's home, and began arguing about the bet after the game.
    Metts said Quick went to his car, got the rifle he normally uses for hunting and fired one shot, hitting Johnson in the chest. Deputies arrested Quick.
    Quick was being held Sunday in the Lexington County jail, awaiting a bail hearing. The sheriff's department said he did not yet have a lawyer

    Idiots are everywhere.

    About 10 years ago or so, just a few minutes away from where I work, there was a guy that shot his wife because she burned the biscuits.

    That is not an exaggeration he really shot her over burnt biscuits.

    Now I am sure there were other things involved that led up to that, the guy was a drunk and obviously a loon but still people are just idiots.

    A friend of mine is in jail for killing a man. He was in a sports bar and starting heckling some Steeler fans and when he was asked to leave they followed him out to his car and he pulled a gun and shot one of them.
