And, Speaking of Idiots …


I’ve written here several times about the ongoing tragedy of grade crossing accidents … where cars and trucks and buses are hit by trains at railroad crossings, usually killing whoever happens to be in the vehicle.

There are also regular occurrences of people being killed while walking on railroad tracks. Some just aren’t aware of the oncoming train because they are listening to ipods or talking on cell phones. Others are suicides.

Then, of course, there are the terminally – or as seen in this amazing video – the near-terminally stupid.

No way that idiot didn't know there was a train coming... I see a "Darwin Award" in his near future.

That looks like an awkward reenactment of a common chase-scene stunt. Maybe he was running from a paternity suit.
