Pocket Ninja: I'm trying to like and appreciate your headline, subby, but really, it's just not clicking for me. He didn't take the "scene" with him, he took the victim. The "victim" and the "scene" are not necessarily connected in any tangible way. For example, if I kicked you in the head in your driveway, the driveway is the scene and you are the victim. If I then put you in my my trunk and drive you to a bridge, you are remain the victim but the scene has changed. I have taken your driveway with me; that would just be stupid. Now, at the bridge, the bridge is the scene, you remain the victim, and I pick you up and heave you over the side into the river. And, guess what--that's another scene entirely. Three scenes, one victim. Get it?

So it's three scenes with two acts. In the third act, does the victim come back as a zombie and seek revenge on you? Or is this more a Shakespearean comedy?

You're a good time at parties, aren't you?

He hit 3 people, only one of whom ended up stuck in the windscreen, so regardless of the status of the "scene" and the guy in the windscreen, he still left the scene of the accident for the other two people he hit.

\too sensible?

Yes but do your Two Princes have a Pocket Full of Kryptonite?

Oh, and you folks asking if Pocket Ninja would be fun at parties? fark yeah! I'd love to slam back a pile of beer with 'em. By definition they're almost certainly more fun than most of us at a party and probably an order of magnitude more likely to be invited back to another party.

Hmm... A party with Gorgor and Pocket Ninja might be the most amusing thing on the planet.

Maybe it's one large mile long scene that he stretched as he continued to move/trap the guy?

Sounds like a scene from "Alice's Adventure through the Windshield"

Why did only one of the involved get charged with leaving the scene of an accident? The other guy did exactly the same thing.

zvoidx: Pocket Ninja: He didn't take the "scene" with him, he took the victim. The "victim" and the "scene" are not necessarily connected in any tangible way.

With the victim still in the windshield, a crime was still being committed - so, the accused, did take the scene with him.

Subby is not incorrect, perhaps the police made that particular charge because there was enough criteria to say "leaving scene of crime"..

Either way, subby had limited space to make a statement.

/not subby


Not real bright, are you? While I understand subby's headline was a (pretty funny) joke, what YOU apparently can't grasp is the difference between "scene of the crime" and "scene of the accident" which he did in fact leave.

I'm not sure why, but the headline made me laugh.
Does that mean I'm a bad person?
/hope not
//I'd still laugh even if it did

You'd probably be surprised how many people's personality turns off along with their computer.
But I'm guessing you probably don't get out much.

SuburbanCowboy: I was in Rhode Island a few weeks ago, and man was the place filled with bad drivers.

I think part of the problem is that everyone was so polite. People did things that where I'm from (New York) would've gotten them murdered.
I'm sitting at a red light in Providence, and the light turns green. I couldn't go because this lady was blocking the box. She could've gone in to the left lane and moved up about 10 car lengths, but instead she just sat in the intersection. I of course was the only one who honked my horn and started yelling at her. She looked at me like I was a freak (and gave me the "what am I supposed to do" look. Move into the left lane, or don't pull into an intersection unless you can clear it. That's what you are supposed to do. A cop was right there, and he said nothing to her. In NYC she would've gotten a ticket for a few hundred dollars. At the very least the cop would've been yelling at her to get the hell out of the intersection.

In Newport I watched a cab go the wrong way on a divided road. Luckily all of hte cars heading towards him were in the other lane.

Cops had one lane coned off and a guy in a cadillac pulls right in between the cones to make a turn. The cop doesn't yell at the guy, but instead just goes and moves the cones out of the way for him. It was ridiculous.

In New York none of this crap would happen because people would be screaming at them, and they would learn their lesson.

What is with the awful driving in Rhode Island?

/cool story bro.



WTF? is it the Twilight Zone?! I ain't ever goin' to Rhode Island, or even drive through!

JustMatt: SuburbanCowboy: In New York none of this crap would happen because people would be screaming at them, and they would learn their lesson.

I live in RI and let me tell you, I am doing my part to be the biggest asshole possible to people who do blatantly stupid shiat on the road. My wife buried her face in her hands last Friday commuting to work because I was honking and throwing the bird to some biatch who was putting on makeup in the left hand lane doing less than the speed limit. Also, unfortunately there is no "box" in the intersections here like in NY. Blocking the left lane and blocking an intersection make me want to kill people.

I am trying to do my part, but I am only one person.


Sometimes, for fun, I like to drive slowly in the left lane. It is more entertaining than trolling fark threads.

Good stand there, I'm getting the car and leaving the scene of this accident.

asidefacil: Also live in RI, second worst drivers I've seen (after Massachusetts).

This story is a prime example of why RI road warriors are far worse than MA drivers. I lived in Illinois most of my life, where I thought the worst drivers must be college students in towns like Champaign-Urbana. Turns out MA drivers are even worse (many don't even seem to know basic rules of the road, like turn signals and what a shoulder is for).

But the worst drivers by far come from RI, who aren't just bad drivers, they're aggressively bad drivers. They'll sit on your bumper, honking and swerving and cussing you out in the far right lane for doing anything close to the speed limit, while the two or three lanes next to you on 95 are completely open.

Driving in Providence is a miserable experience, and I avoid it whenever I can for the sake of my health and sanity.
