There once was a lad from Regina,
Who certainly wasn't a whiner.
His boot-to-face fame
Got him instant acclaim,
Now he's suddenly knee-deep in vagina.

Being that close to any moving train is stupid, but he may not have been trespassing.  In my neighborhood we have two train lines that are right on the public street- with no crossbars (or whatever you call them) to boot.

The trains move pretty slow (as per law when in a residential area).

Pedestrians are often that close to the trains.  It makes me queasy, but in the end its not technically illegal.

/I stay 20+ feet back when I get stuck at the train track.

JuggleGeek: Uchiha_Cycliste: ell how can you possibly know where a train might be? They could show up anywhere! You could be ambling along a gentle wooded trail and BAM! hit by a train.
It's just too difficult to predict the places where a train might show up, they are like land sharks they are!

And quiet, too.  Those suckers make less noise than a mouse and will sneak right up on you.  Probably on tip-toe, right up until they pounce.


Exactly! If they weren't such sneaky bastards they woiuldn't need train wranglers like they do... but they just can't be trusted.

Too bad the train didn't hit him in the head.

When I was a young lad I asked my momma where my daddy was and she couldn't give me a name or anything more then he was in a long dark train.  So he's probably an engineer.

And the train conductor says
Take a break driver 8
Driver 8 take a break
You done kicked that dude too hard

/or not hard enough

i have the miraculous ability to get stuck at those stupid tracks every single time i'm going to that part of town.  and it's always depressing, because it's so slow.  sometimes, it rolls in, and, without ever resting, rolls out, like the conductor is saying, just kidding

Dumbassery is big business these days. With the pathetic job market these days, expect to see more of this type of thing

Yeah, I assume you're talking about Marigny/Bywater area.  Problem is those aren't so much functional travel lines- but they're connected to a huge switching station (well, actually two stations on opposite ends of the neighborhood).

So when the train comes out slowly and blocks traffic- it needs to sit there while the guys in the back add/remove new cars.  The law states that they can't block traffic more than 10 minutes... but indeed they do- because who's going to police that?

Some other people on the Internet believe the conductor was trying to keep the kid from getting hit by part of the train. But I don't see it. Does that mean I'm loco?


stop it

If I was YouTube I would have some kind of clause in the user agreement that prevents paying ad revenue on this kind of stupid shiat.
Some other kid is going to do something moronic, and his parents are going to sue YouTube saying stories like this encouraged him.

The conductor was saving him from a MUCH worse impact.


The train wouldn't have hit him. The conductor should be charged with assault.

Dragonflew: the_sidewinder: That went a different direction than I was expecting

He's Canadian, we're not a very litigious lot.


I'm a canadian too, and I generally get the feeling that the reason we seem to be less  litigious is because of our universal healthcare. So many suits in the US are simply about covering medical costs

Someone needs to update that .gif to switch the boot to a large penis.

Why do I always have to come up with this stuff?

Most of our lawsuits come from Jehovah's Witlesses, whom Canada soundly shut the hell up long ago.  The problem is the US is still candoring to their bullshiat.

That's because our insurance refuses to cover the medical costs we purchase it to cover. No, I'm not kidding or being snarky. That's honestly why many lawsuits actually get filed in this country... or did you think it was a coincidence that out legislatures at the state and federal level are composed so heavily of lawyers (with a handful of doctors thrown in for good measure)?

 The next time an idiot stands in front of a train, I hope it's you.

Dear Stupid Kid,

If anyone is dumb enough to give you money for this garbage, consider your good fortune carefully. In my day, we'd have realized how stupid what we did was and never told anyone, much less shared it with the world. That said, you better save it and spend it very slowly, because everybody knows you now and no one is going to want to be associated with you, much less hire your dumbass after googling your name from an application.

Sue him and use the money for educating people to STAY THE FARK AWAY FROM RAILROAD TRACKS if they have no business there.

Thanks for the information.

That actually explains what I used to think was spiteful train conducting.
