No, silly, he was calling Sam Jackson. And I'm not talking about Nick Fury, either.

Didn't Bruce Willis do this movie already?

Richard Ayoade's hair from The In Crowd played the villain, IIRC.

Whoops! Here comes a SPOILER!

Why do people do this? I don't get it. When I see train tracks, I do whatever I can to avoid stepping on them.

He was just trying to give those young dorks a dead body to go see. Couldn't even get that right.

Trains aren't exactly inconspicuous.  I mean it's pretty dumb to have your headphones turned up and walk on the tracks but it's not like you can fail to notice if a train is coming.  It's not really the best or safest way to travel but assuming that people just won't walk along a leveled and cleared corridor is somewhat naive.

You know, if I survived being hit by a train, I would probably do the same thing. Judging by similar situations I have been in, I tend to be rather calm about it. It's not until a half-hour later where I go into "I could have been killed!" mode.

It is against the law to walk on train tracks and Wenberg would be cited for criminal trespass.

It's just plain stupid too.

Was on my bike and hit by a car a couple days ago - guess I finally got my "it's not a matter of if, but when" moment.  Concussion aside, I was relatively relaxed for the first 30 minutes or so, until I realized that yes, point in fact, it the first thing to make contact was my helmet.  It did a remarkable job, I think I'm going to send it to Shoei and ask them to transfer the spirit of it to another helmet.  There was clearly  some sort of shamanic ritual involved for it to do so well..

Yes, because walking about 4 feet to the left is a long long way.

I ended up under a service truck about a year ago while riding a moped. I remember having to tell the driver to relax and that everything was fine.

/found out later the guy was an alcoholic and didn't have a license.

Exactly how do you prove your sexual orientation one way or another?

Speaking for myself, I don't read or watch a lot of porn and never have. Couldn't whip up a suitcase full of porn, or a discount card at FourX Kangaroo Pron Shoppe, or web records, because there aren't any.

Having sex with a member of your own sex is something that even straight people can do. In fact, there's a reason why AIDS and VD propaganda says "men who have sex with men" instead of "gay". Most of the men having sex with men are 1) bisexuals; 2) in the closet to themselves or others; 3) prostitutes; 4) unwilling victims such as young straight prisoners; and 5) guys who just don't give a damn about labels or who don't much care how they get their rocks off. A lot of them meet every criterium for being gay except accepting the label. Why do you thing the Republicans and Right Wing Christians are so deep in denial and so frequently being caught with their pants down, often literally?

You can't prove you are gay by saying so, brainscans might do it but would be prohibatively expensive, and so far the genes or physical traits associated with sexual orientation are very loosely associated.

Clichés about transvestism and feminine attributes are horribly unreliable. 70% of transvestites are heterosexual, while 30% are bisexual or gay. That's probably bang on the general population so there's no relationship between orientation and transvestite urges at all.

Studies have shown some evidence of genetic links, physical traits (such as left-handedness and relative finger-lengths) but these are merely probablistic. More gays may be left-handed, but most left-handed people are not gay. It's statistics, not legal or moral or scientific proof. Even the scientists who produce these studies would admit that they prove nothing very strongly and that more research is needed even to speak of high probability.

In short, you can't prove that you are straight (one in four gay men have been married and have children to prove it), while a large number of ostensibly straight men have sex with men regularly or wish they could.

Meanwhile, about one in five American men haven't had any sex in the last year and a lot of them must be latents or sexually repressed or simply fuglies.

And bisexuals queer the deal for everybody by being able to think, feel, say, or do anything that any of the sexual orientations can.

It is legal nonsense to demand a proof of orientatio, guilt or innocence that can not be given and confirmed. It is like asking Christians to prove the existence of Buddy Jesus by throwing themselves off of high buildings and flying safely to the roof of a distant building. I'm an atheist but I'm not a bully, fool, or fanatic--I would never ask a Christian to proof the existence of God because I believe it is impossible regardless of what role God plays in your life or whether he does exist or not.

I am appalled by the number of things I can not prove although they are absolutely true. If a store clerk charges me with stealing something I just bought elsewhere withoutt getting a receipt and keeping it without losing it immediately, no proof can be had. Anything I say to defend myself, no matter how true, can not be proven and is precisely what you would expect a shoplifter to say in their (guilt assumed) defence.

Whoops! I don't know how I did it, but that last post was meant to go into the thread about the stupid British authorities asking refuge-seekers to prove they are gay.

Very sorry.

Sexual orientation has very little to do with being hit by trains, although admittedly there is no research into the connection.

Well, I did kind of hit him, I'm not a suing kind of guy, and I turn into a real bro when I am in "Oh, I'm alive" mode.
