When he got kicked in the head, did he lose his train of thought?

kcfarker: Astorix: No.

This is based on theoretical dollars on a viral video that has a notoriously short lived shelf life. Kevin O'Leary who is a media behemoth and one of the members of Dragon's Den and is generally a dickhole, but is right on this count. He said this morning on CBC the popularity of this video will last another week until people move on to the next hot thing. He said "The best way to sustain popularity on YouTube is to serialize your program"

This is a one off. A fluke. And very very hard to monetize.

What's going to stop the next college/teenage moron from trying something just as dangerous, or even more so, with the sole intent that, "Hey, IF this goes viral, I'll be rich!"?

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.

ransack.: farkingismybusiness: Oh long Johnson!!!

Well, there you go. Iron protruberance, just like I said.

Do you people have any idea what it does to innocent conductors when they hit jackass idiots like this guy? They get PTSD. They lose their ability to work, sometimes it breaks them as men.

Stay away from moving trains. Or trains that might move. How farking hard is it for people to understand that? There is momentum and power and forces in play that your mind literally cannot comprehend. Your body can be exploded in the blink of an eye.

Ow! That was my feelings!: DarkVader: scottydoesntknow: the_sidewinder: That went a different direction than I was expecting

Yea, I was expecting lawsuits. If he wants to make money off advertising I'm not gonna fault him.

I wouldn't fault him for suing the shiat out of the conductor and the railroad.  That kick was assault, and could very well have pulled him into the side of the train.

He was farking trespassing! Such a suit would get immediately tossed. The railroad should protect itself by filing trespassing charges against him.


i have a feeling y'all aren't lawyers... this happened in peru.  he's an uninjured, male tourist with a laughable hair cut... against a railroad company.  forget it jake, it's chinatown.

Maybe he can take his act on the road, and get kicked by train conductors in various countries.

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?

depends on your motives

Hope the railroad sues him for trespassing or something and gets every cent. My grandfather was a legendary railroad detective and my kin doesn't take kindly to folks who act stupid and disrespectful and be where they ain't supposed to be like this guy. You have any idea what kind of a clusterfark it makes in a schedule when some jackass like this inevitably gets plastered and the train has to stop in place and the line closes while the whole area gets roped off as a crime scene and the idiot's jackassery is forensically documented? How much money the railroad has to spend on lawyers to prove this idiot jackass deserves whatever happens to him?

He's lucky that was a boot and not an open steel door or some other iron protruberance that would have made for a video more appropriate for Ogrish. There's a reason you aren't allowed to be where that idiot was.
