jst3p: factoryconnection: Zul the Magnificent: Not sure it matters if the head is SOLID BONE.

Here's the odd thing about this statement: you have one of these-here heads that you're describing.  You've no doubt struck it on all manner of things, from nerf balls to steel street signs.  Given that your head is a constant composition throughout, can you really say that the material/object striking it make no difference?

Because that would be really dumb.

That and the head isn't solid bone. Pretty hollow actually.


Zul is implying that the kid has no brain. But thanks for your lesson in anatomy.

R.A.Danny: How do you ship non liquid goods in a pipeline?


 In a slurry. As long as the contents can handle the transport liquid (packaged somehow) they can be pumped. It is probably harder if the contents don't float, but velocity helps that.

BSABSVR: RollingThunder: BSABSVR: Yeah.  Trying to murder someone for taking a selfie is totally both rational and heroic.

Trying to get somebody THE fark OUT OF DANGER RANGE by pushing them with the only thing that can reach (IE: their foot) is indeed rational and heroic.

If you're in danger of being hit by a protuberance from the train, then a kick from a boot by someone on said train is not significantly less dangerous.  Physics, how does it work?


Indeed, how do the physics work? A boot is far softer than metal and may be considerably less pointy than certain protuberances. Plus the human leg has a lot more give and flexibility than a piece of steel attached to a train.

Plus there's no actual evidence that he was kicked as such. Perhaps the engineer held out his foot and attempted to push him away. That's different than winding up a kick. I think it's impossible to say at this point.
 
2014-04-16 06:32:56 PM  

Red_Fox: InterruptingQuirk: Close enough to get kicked means he was trespassing, at least here in the States.

It appears to be a VIA rail train, it's the right colours anyway.  They operate in Canada mostly.


booger42: Why don't they look.

/Hipster got lucky - don't turn your back on a passing train - esp that close.  Engineer/conductor has a case that he was pushing him outta the way.

//I agree, looked a bit like a VIA loco


Tenatra: I was thinking Canada as well without knowing anything about the train. The teen just seems too happy in the aftermath to be part of our American population.

This is what I expect from an American at a minimum


I'm about 100% certain that it's a PeruRail train in Peru. Colour scheme, down to the striping, and the grid configuration perfectly matches the Alco-built locomotives they use out there. I'd be willing to bet that this is between Hidroelectica and Aguas Calientes (near Macchu Picchu) where there's a very heavily-used trail that shares the railroad right-of-way.

factoryconnection: SpectroBoy: Your honor, the defendant was merely delivering a "freedom nudge". It would be prejudicial to call it a well-deserved swift kick to the head.

He got a level-shot boot to the head by someone on a moving train, and yet didn't even fall over or wince.  That was a soft-contact hit, not a "swift kick" by any means.  I get swift kicks to the face from bare-footed toddlers all the time and those hurt.  If that engineer was trying to "swift kick" him, he'd have been on his ass writhing in pain.

The kid won't sue because the evidence that he was placing himself in a trespassing situation and deliberately endangering himself at the liability of the railroad would sink any case possible.


Bear in mind that his boot had the energy of a train behind it, to be honest the train company has good reason to fire him, not because he hit the guy, but because he could have broken his own ankle on the guy's head.

/The actual heroic thing to have done in this case is to just let the guy get hit by the train.

HairBolus: [gifmaker.me image 637x357]


That's not a kick, that's the engineer keeping his leg over that metal ledge to protect the idiot.  It probably hurt the engineer more than the idiot.  He should have let the metal carve divots in the idiot's skull.  That might have made the world a slightly better place.
 
2014-04-16 07:20:18 PM  

HairBolus: I've noticed in this thread some are calling the kicker "the engineer" while others "the conductor". I was probably the conductor.

In current North American trains the engineer drives the train and is the top paid job while the conductor is second in charge and is responsible for everything else (including supervising the rest of the train crew if it exists - freight trains may be crewed by just an engineer and a conductor). This notion of conductor is not to be confused with "ticket taker" on a passenger train.

... conductors duties include: ...  Be alert to wayside signals, switch position, and other conditions that affect safe train movement

The engineer probably stayed at the controls while the conductor went out to address the safety issue, though if there was lesser other crew on board then one of them might have been sent out.


Mr conductor!

stonicus: That kid is a super idiot... he's also probably going to lawyer up and get a fat check from the train company.


No he won't. He was trespassing. He was to close to the tracks. He is not dead. I have been hot by a truck from CSX before. Where the driver was completely at fault. My lawyer---"the have really good lawyers and a lot of time" So honestly, assuming this was a CSX train they would probably sue him. HAH

redsquid: Engineers and bulls have a well developed hatred of gunsels and train fans. I've had them throw shiat at me from moving trains because I was standing on public property taking pictures. The fact that train fans are some of the biggest supporters of their dying industry doesn't seem to make a bit of difference. Train bulls are right up there with prison guards in the 'too dumb to be a cop but still craves the power' scale. The kid may have been wrong, but kicking him in the head was just being a douche.


Got shouted at by a rail maintenance crew for trespassing earlier today in fact. I was on my lunch time walk around the building. In our parking lot. Which is set back several yards from the rail line. One of their trucks was in our parking lot, clearly past the 'employees and customers only, no trespassing' sign. I had a laugh.

It's apparent from looking at the stills and the gif that HairBolus posted above. Something out of the frame might have hit the guy if he stayed there, but nothing in the frame other than the boot was about to hit him.
 
2014-04-16 09:14:18 PM  
it wasn't a kick - it was the idiot's collision with an already protruding boot. Engineer was not required to remove foot from comfortable position.
Had it been an actual KICK, the foot would not have curled so cleanly around that big, fat head.

khyberkitsune    That piece of metal circled is not even the closest thing to the guy.  The yellow part of the railing is closer.  The boot is not protecting him from anything in the the frame.  Look at  HairBolus post above.  The Gif shows it better than the frame you posted. The boot isn't at the same distance from the camera as the circled area in your pic. If it were, he would have broken his ankle.  Instead the foot sweeps back after it hits the neck. Look at the video and the GIF.

Regardless, I fully support the booting.  The guy deserved it.  I even think he heard the horn, but didn't care since he stupidly thought he was far enough away. One of the wider cars behind the engine might have hit him but that black metal thingy was not going to.

Learn how to determine perspective. First off, see where my circled area is meeting up with the engineer's calf? Note the angulation of his boot and follow the comparative angle of the limb, compared with the impact point of the boot top against the side of the skull.  This clearly shows that had that engineer not booted this dipshiat, his cerebellum would have been torn from the back of his skull.

You don't think the train wouldn't have to stop if the conductor broke his ankle on the guy's head? If anything the conductor could have cost the train company more because on top of having to stop, they'd have to pay the conductor worker's comp too.

... which is how I feel.  There's the guy on the train, and his job is to make sure the train continues training.  Maybe two cars back is a particularly wide load, with spinning machetes of death sticking out the sides, and they're spinning in the breeze.  Maybe not.  Either way, after you touch the hot stove, you understand why you shouldn't touch the stove.

Literally Addicted: Alonjar: ...and trains are really long, and take some distance to stop, so no, simply walking around it was probably not an option.

Also, my point - since the train operator would be quite some distance from the actual accident, immediate first aid might have been needed for the car driver.  If, in fact, the car was on the other side of the train (as you assume) and couldn't be safely reached, perhaps a 911 call wouldn't have been a bad idea?


There's a small chance someone who lived through running the crossing guards would find himself turning over a new leaf and becoming a model human being. There's a much larger chance that such a huge bleeding dumbass would survive only to find a way to messily destroy many lives in the future until they finally do themselves in. The idea that all lives are worth saving can go fark itself. Even hypothetical passengers don't garner much sympathy if they put themselves next to someone willing to kill them to save 120 seconds.

zimbomba63: One night, my girlfriend of the time and I were on the way to my local watering hole.  We were stop for a approaching train, about 5 cars from the gates.  A car pull out of line behind us and proceeds to drive around the gates.  My girlfriend said, "He's not going to make it!' and I said, "No, I think he across."  As usual, I was wrong.  The freight train, horn blaring and brakes screeching, comes flying through and seemed to clip the car, because the beam from the headlights went spinning through the trees.  I did a u-turn and took another route the bar.  When we got there,I told my friend what I had witnessed. One guys father was a train engineer, and he said his father told about one incident, where the same thing I saw happened. He said the train crew ran back to the busted up car and found the driver standing there unhurt, so they promptly began to beat the shiat out of him.


From up close, trains always move seem to be moving very slowly. Many people have died underestimating the speed of an oncoming locomotive.

Maybe dumbass wouldn't have been hit by any protruding metal, but do you think the engineer could gauge it that quickly? If dumbass is close enough for him to boot, he's probably close enough to MAYBE get hit by something sticking out, but DEFINITELY close enough to die if he loses his balance or even sways a bit. Engineer was doing him a gigantic solid. As I said before, if the engineer was malicious, he has access to pipes, hammers, hot coffee...if he wanted to hurt, maim or kill Dumbass, Dumbass' video wouldn't have seen the light of day and his death would be ruled a suicide.
