I wonder if the person was using Apple maps.

Or did they use Time Machine and do the same thing again?

Twice in the same day. What are the odds?

Yup.

You build them in forests.

The farmer's market wasn't cool enough.

This is a repeat. I repeat: this is a repeat. Now don't make me repeat myself.

I know how this happens. For some reason, some elderly people, especially women, start driving with one foot on the accelerator and the other on the brake. They then get confused and press the accelerator when they want to brake. My wife's mother does this and I won't be in the same car with her driving.

Initially people refused treatment in the incident but paramedics were later called back to the scene and took an injured person to Advocate Illinois Masonic Hospital in good condition, said Roccasalva.

Someone saw dollar signs and changed their mind about being "injured".

Dow Jones and the Temple of Doom: Another responsible car owner heard from.


That's debatable.

But seriously, when will these car nuts learn that as long as they drive these death machines wherever they go, they are putting us all in danger

The way to stop a bad guy with a Lincoln Town Car is a good guy with Lincoln Town Car.

It was obviously the car's fault. It was a town car.

Or they were adrenaline zombies. The person who died from riding that bouncy ball thing over the cliff in Russia walked away from it, for a while.

There's an apartment building in my neighborhood that has the small fence rebuilt and plywood slapped on the side every year or two. Even though I am a skeptic, there are aspects of feng shui that are right on, like "don't get a dwelling in the path of traffic".

Go look at the siting for this store on google maps. It's at a really weird intersection and if it wasn't an old guy, it'd be a drunk or a suspect fleeing the police. Whoever picked that site for a glass fronted store should be handed a cardboard box for his or her plants and mementos and shown the door.

Actually, we here in the Pacific Northwest have discovered that, if you limit or ban cars altogether in certain areas, this kind of thing just... disappears. Take the Bellevue Pedestrian Corridor, for instance - lovely, comfortable, and largely free of elderly chuckleheads in Lincoln Town Cars. (I work in downtown Bellevue these days, so it's nice to be able to walk around knowing that pedestrians, not vehicles, really do have priority.)

Does that extend into the gun control debate? About as much as the post I quoted, surely.

Not to be confused with that same woman who drove into the same apple store. I assume?

FTA rested near display cases holding headphones and other accessories
That really is some in depth reporting.

"The dark-colored sedan drove through the glass walls and made it about four or five feet inside, where it seemed to turn and rested near display cases holding headphones and other accessories, according to witnesses."

I enjoy how journalists treat vehicles like they are some living creature... also... "seemed" to turn?

There's not even an app for that

No. Criminals will usually ignore such prohibitions.
