what were the papers?
also the title has a name but the article says
that they dont know his name?

he was running from his wife

1)I would assume that most people don't scout out parking lots for chasing papers.
2)Whether or not there was a guard rail, how do you not realize that you're about to run over the edge of a 300 foot cliff?

It's ironic that the papers were his thesis on Einstein's theory of general relativity.

Well, that is true, but I don't think this guy was really worried about the curve of space-time when he grabbed that last paper ;)

You cannot claim to know what exactly was going through this guy's head. I've had it with Newton, and I'm certainly not ever again going to take my car to one of his mechanics. You say "Newton", and I 1-up you with Einstein. You bring up Edison, and I'll bring up the fact that he's Tesla's biatch (filter pre-empted).

You just keep on claiming that you have all of the answers, and I'll keep directing you to that free car wash at the end of the parking lot :)

I never knew abut was an actual word.

I'm fairly sure, at least at one point, it was probably his rectum. ;)

You've just got an aversion to apples.

Well, to be fair, there has never been a decent band named "Edison"

Hrumph...nothing gets the dust off your bumper like a 20 foot drop.

I like articles.

Especially ones made for easy reading.

With short sentences each on one line.

And double-spaced for super-happiness.

It makes me feel like a grown-up.

Because I can read it all by myself.

I see this every day. People chasing court papers out into the street traffic. Watching them try to dodge the city bus and keep an eye on the paper is interesting. Sort of like Nascar-type interesting, if you know what I mean.

Well, I guess now lawyers are going to have a precedent for situations involving a lack of guard rails between a parking lot and a 300 foot cliff. I guess that's what they call professional curtosy.

Not to excuse the guy, but badly designed parking lots can have some nasty hidden dangers. Ever been to the Bloorview Hospital in Toronto? If you do, you might come across a hidden 1 foot drop on the way out of their parking lot. It looks like a sidewalk that you have to drive over to get into the main way out of the parking lot, but it's not. Just a terrible bit of design work that probably causes a hell of a lot of damage to cars. And no, I wasn't driving, and no, we didn't go over it. But everyone in the car when we spotted it said "Oh shiat. That was close. Who the hell designed that?"

Or like that Bridge in the UK that all sorts of dogs were flinging themselves off, and experts decided it was due to due to some sort of optical illusion to which dogs were vulnerable.

Just saying. Awww, forget it. Continue posting your pictures of Darwin. It is apt.

Don't worry, there's plenty of parking... just keep going, I see a nice big open spot up theeeeeeeeeeeree!
