I sincerely hope your condescending and cavalier attitudes around this tragedy become more sensitive when you're informed of the fact that the unfortunate victim was African-American.

2007-08-04 05:18:38 PM  
You fail, subby.

People who try to beat the trains are just dumbasses who deserve to die. That's it, they are dumbasses. An engine pulling what, 30+ cars, will weigh a couple hundred tons. Big, heavy, fast-moving trains will take at least a quarter mile to stop, and the engineer won't see someone going over the tracks until it is too late for the dumbass car/truck driver. Think about the stress the engineer will go through, knowing that he killed someone. Even though the dead person deserved to die, it just isn't fair for the engineer.

Regarding the "SAD", that is. Love the little song. I'd +1 if I was Total Fark.

Good thing it was a diesel, not electric. Otherwise it would have been a salt and battery.

Hahaha priceless topic, if there were a contest you win on creativity alone, humor is just a bonus.

Nope. I just don't like idiots, especially idiots who try to beat trains. I have no sympathy for them. I am not insensitive, but I have no sympathy for idiots who do stupid things and die as a result. I do have sympathy for the engineer who hit the dumbass.

A place I used to work for had the local Santa Fe railroad guys come out a do a safety seminar. One of the things they said was it would be hard to find a seasoned engineer who hasn't been at the controls when someone in a vehicle got crossways with a train, with deadly results.

It sucks, but it's part of the job and is to be expected to happen.
