That thud was the most sickening thing I heard today it was as if millions of Fran Dreschers suddenly cried out in terror and were suddenly silenced.

Actually I think he got up and they got him down again.

He walked out of the hospital under his own power, so it's not like he was badly injured.
 
2012-05-05 02:59:34 AM
Yeah, he gets up and walks over the side of the road under his own power, and lays down again.

Never bring a foam sword to a bus fight.

He used to be a foamswordsman, until he took a bus to the knee.

Obviously the bus and its driver are racist.

And brother got hit by said bus. I always love the people that walk out in front of traffic 'knowing' that it will stop for them because of 'rules'. "I'll sue their insurance company!" Sure, but you might _have_ to sue them because you're hurt and out of work.

That's hilarious. I was on a MUSH and one of the players was talking about this happening live. Of course, once she said that the guy was okay, many lulz were had.

You can tell it was a freshman because anyone who has lived in Austin for over a year knows the drag is a free for all when it comes to pedestrians.

As a Longhorn alum (BSEE '96), and having used that crosswalk many many times during my time there, I can only say one thing:

"Dumbass!"

/When did they get rid of the bike path on that side?

There was an article that said something along the lines of there may be "disciplinary action if the driver's actions are found to be at fault".

Dude, farker ran a red light -- that pretty much says "at fault" right there.
 
2012-05-05 05:38:50 PM
Not that I'm trying to blame the victim.....but people shouldn't just take for granted that cars stop at lights.

I mean, as soon as the light turns red is not the time to run out in to the road. Look both ways and all that.

This.

Physics don't magically not make your organs not rupture just because the pilot of thousands of lbs. of moving steel SHOULD have stopped. Regardless of who is at fault... if you're the pedestrian you're still the one who's going to be hurt or killed. Momma taught you to look both ways before you cross for a very good reason.

If you get hurt and miss work, it won't hurt to miss work.

LOL @ how concerned the white kids are.

WOOOOOOO!!!!!

There's a surprising lack of details on this event. To elaborate, the UT School of Architecture started a tradition a few years back for the last class day before finals week for people to blow off stress.

Everyone goes to the crosswalk and gets a foam sword and half go to one side, and half on the other. People wear costumes and generally have a good time. Each time the light turns red and walk signal turns on, both sides charge each other and a huge foam sword melee erupts. Then each side goes to the other and light turns green. When the light turns red and walk sign comes on it happens again, etc.

I was there a few hours before this happened and can attest that everyone is fully aware of the danger of the intersection. But some people, including this guy, may be so focused on running across the second the walk sign comes on may forget that they still need to check for cars who might run the light. That's exactly what happened. I can also attest to the fact that CapMetro buses run lights all the time just like motorists.

Here's the link of what the actual Foam Sword Friday looks like:

2012-05-06 10:45:32 PM
Even if the red light part is true which i doubt even if it had been green the idiot ran out in to the street without looking. he would have been hit either way.
 
2012-05-06 11:22:09 PM
People always joke around that I'm too cautious around roads. I look both ways at least twice before crossing, even if it's the middle of the night and no one is around. I've lived in countries were people drive on opposite sides of the road than the other, so I even look both ways on one way streets.

Still, I won't victim-blame, hope the dude really is okay.

Fortunately the kid was treated and released from hospital with no major injuries and Cap Metro is going to pay for this kid's kid's education but this why you don't play in traffic.

Would have been epic if he had a red trekkie shirt on.
