Half of him did die. The other half died a little further down the tracks.

Has anybody set up a register for gifts for the family?  If I were to want to move some value, how could I find the proper address?

I would have said, "crash blamed on bad drivers," but still a nicely done headline.

I'm just here to monitor what the cards on Fark come up with in the way of a play on words.

Speaking publicly on Friday for the first time since her husband's rescue attempt went wrong Monday evening, Emily Scholz said she learned he was dead -- and what he did -- when San Mateo County sheriff's deputies arrived at her doorstep that night to deliver the horrible news.

He leaves a widow? I call first dibs

Was the train the PCI Express?

His wife wanted them to hide his real name but ran afoul of their Anti-Aliasing policy.

Poor guy, tries to save some schmuck and ends up all GUI.

Depends on whether or not the train was built to take advantage of that, I'm finding an awful lot of trains that don't.  Meanwhile the whole incident could have been much more interesting if the train's engine supported physx!

You know, I normally really appreciate a good dig at hardware drivers.

Too soon, Fark. Too soon.
