Amazing. These teachers ought to be commended for the quick action they took to save the lives of everyone on board.

You want to talk about heroes? These two are real heroes.

Promptly fired for doing someone else's job.

Holy crap: actual good news out of not only my state but my town!

I don't want to cause no fuss.

The wheels on the bus go round and round and round and round and round and round and HOLY shiat NO ONE IS DRIVING!

Of course, we don't keep the canon loaded.

Good teachers are pretty awesome. My parents were both teachers and forty years later ex-students still approach my mother and thank her for her help, both in school with personal issues. Anyone I've met who was in my dad's class just remembers him being a jerk who threw chalk around when he was mad and had a piranha he used to threaten to feed their fingers to.

I've seen this movie. There's no way the bus stays above 50 mph
 
2013-12-19 10:03:38 AM
Put their own lives at risk? Their lives were already at risk! They just saved their own hides.

(Plus all the little hidelings).

Grats on them doing the right thing though, rather than freezing up and watching their doom approach.

Sounds like the bus driver had some sort of "medical issue", whether that be natural or chemically-induced.
But the whole "brakes didn't want to work" thing rings a little hollow.  Brakes never work if you are not in the driver's seat pressing on the pedal.

Both signs of great teachers :D

After watching the video, the driver was attempting, but not able to get back in his seat because two teachers were in his way.

I think it was called, "The Bus That Couldn't Slow Down."

Good job, Mrs. Frizzle,

I don't know why I used a comma there.
 
2013-12-19 10:22:23 AM
Suprised.  I figured it's be less than ten comments before the conservatives would arrive whining about how they were only trying to save their union pensions or something.  Congrats to the teachers!

Go banana!

Did this interrupt the sex they were having with the students?
 
2013-12-19 10:24:07 AM
Amy Ryan is hot.

Oh, and great job, teachers.

Hero?  Did the teacher whip off his or her glasses then stop the bus by grabbing the bumper?

/someone had to do it
 
2013-12-19 10:30:38 AM
I was just wondering when a liberal was going to come in and s*** all over this thread, blaming the status quo of blame first and take no action for fear of litigation on conservatism, thank God these teachers nor conservatives could never be so stupid nor so cowardly. Congrats to the teachers.
 
2013-12-19 10:31:34 AM
So let me get this straight, they were on the bus and would have been hurt or killed had they let it crash. The guy was sitting in the front row and had to standup and take one step -- maybe two. to get to the driver and regain control of the bus.

OK, good job there bucko, but it also seems like a bit of self preservation and it's not like he had to exert himself much. So I'm taking back the Hero Tag and giving him a Good Job tag. Now Amy Ryan should give him a good job... as in the blow variety.

I too watched the video, and if you are driving a bus through a stop sign without slowing down, and in a manner that causes you to be thrown from your seat and onto the floor (meaning your probably not wearing your seat belt), then its time to give someone else a turn at driving the bus.

Stay down.

It's MISS Frizzle, that biatch is single and ready to go

Yeah.  I'm I doctor and can tell he was suffering from not wearing his farkin' seatbelt.

Gonna have to put him down  :(

Let's thank them by cutting their health benefits and stealing their pensions.
 
2013-12-19 10:44:10 AM
So teachers and students, out of control, on a bus.......

BANG BUS!

Shana, they bought their tickets. They knew what they were getting into. I say,  let 'em crash!

Care to explain the backstory to that cartoon?

One thing they probably handn't thought of.
Turn off the engine, and jam it into gear.  The transmission should be able to slow the bus down dramatically.

Personally, I would have thought of that if the brakes were the slightest bit inaccesible.

I think there were seven or eight incidents of runaway school buses on CHiPs.

I didn't read the thread and thus didn't see ChipNASA's post before I posted. If you like, you can imagine his post happens a moment after mine in the same time-line, or in a different time line, from a different POV.

Personally, I think telling the story in one line is funnier. It respects the Aristotlean unities of place and time and action. You gotta respect the Aristolean unities. My English teacher taught me that. And the shorter the joke, the better. The gnat like attention span of people on the web taught me that, along with many of the word's great black out gags.

And bad teachers are even more awesome.

One of the first things we learned in driver's ed was that the driver's seatbelt is there to keep you in a position where you can maintain control of the vehicle you are supposed to be operating.  Guess this driver missed that lesson.

What is trainer sex, and what does she charge?

Big deal.  Yesterday I was standing outside the Piggly Wiggly drinking a gin and juice when I saw a guy stepping off the curb.  He didn't notice the other guy on a bicycle heading sort of in his direction. Instead of taking another swig, I held my drink where it was and said, "Hey, dude" and gestured towards the bike with a nod of my head.  The guy stopped and he WAS NOT HIT.  So, yeah.  Everyone's a hero.

I'm not sure there is one.  Someone on Tumblr decided to draw A Very Special Episode of The Magic Schoolbus, in which the bus becomes human.  Emotional hijinks ensued.
